Driveable Boats!!! - BETA

Description
It's finally here! Your very own driveable boats, now the fastest way to travel the waters of Skyrim! Just go to Riverwood and look for the boat on the river near the saw mill, or craft your own (under Misc section of the Forge). The boat will boost armor and speed while you ride in it.

SKSE is required for this mod to function correctly!!! Download it here: http://skse.silverlock.org/

You can hotkey the boat for easy equipping and unequipping, or just press "E" to exit the boat.

Pressing and holding the sprint key will make your boat go even faster.

You can use weapons, magic, etc while on your boat. There is storage for items on the boats (this storage is shared between all boats you own).

I suggest pressing forward with "W" and then using the mouse to steer. This adds the most realism to the boat movement.

PLEASE DON'T CRAFT THE LONG BOAT OR SHIP, THEY ARE NOT QUITE FINISHED AND YOU WON'T APPRECIATE THEM AT THIS TIME.

If you need wood for crafting boats, please see my Useable Sawmills mod.

This is compatible with the Fishing in Skyrim mod. That's right, you can fish from your boat! The mod is located here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=39990763

Console ID: Not available, it depends on your mod load order. Use console help functions if you need to find the ID.

CURRENTLY NO KNOWN BUGS.

REVISIONS:
Rev 1: Made the row boat craftable and slowed it down a bit. Removed the enchanted glow that was showing up on the boat. Removed the armor rating of the row boat. I will give the future craftable boats armor.
Rev 2: Reduced the value of the row boat to 1000.
Rev 3: Updated the race attack data for horse combat based on the latest 1.6 Skyrim update. No more conflicts with horse combat. Explaind here http://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/topic/699347-attention-mod-authors-mounted-combat-and-race-records/
Rev 4: Removed funny breathing sound that occured after exiting the boat.
Rev 5: Made the row boat weight 50
Rev 6: Added boat storage!!! You can now store anything you want in the boat cargo. This cargo is shared between all the boats you craft. I've added 2 new boats, the Long Boat and the Ship, both can be crafted. The largest ship is not entirely done so I don't recommend crafting it yet. I've added craftable oars. Made the boats heavy when carried, so you will not be able to move fast if you have a boat in your inventory. Fixed the active magic descriptions, now there shouldn't be any shown when riding your boat. Added menu and activators for when you click on the boat.
Rev 7: Added the ability to press "E" to exit the boat. When you exit the boat it will now be placed at a slightly higher z-position relative to the player, so it won't get stuck in the ground. Prepared scripts for water only script import.. hopefully next update.

MOD WAS DISCONTINUED DUE TO LOSS OF FILES IN A COMPUTER CRASH. SORRY, BUT LIFE HAPPENED.

UPDATES HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
-Slow the boats down a bit.
-I'm currently working on making the big ship double as a player home, and it's coming along nicely. Still some work left on this one, but it is currently craftable. The player home feature is not implemented yet.
-Restrict the boats to water use only...they currently work on land too :P. Still working on this, almost done.
-I may change the third person running animation while in the boats. Probably to sitting and/or sitting and rowing. Please be patient with this one, this is tricky stuff.

Are you still working on this mod

It would be better if you can steer and move the boat while sitting down. But otherwise it's a fantastic mod!

I did not like that it attaches to you like a piece of clothing and you just run on water. You should make it so that you sit down on the actual seats. Some rhythmic movement from the waves would be nice too.

I agree with Ma9nUs. Continue with the good work. I have yet to try out the boat but I will and I'll come back to comment suggestions and thoughts.

Any boat that could be driven would most likely be a car...

I unsubscribed but even so, my character runs at the same speed as the boat, and i cant go underwater. Help???

Why have you discontinued this itd be a great mod you just dont know how to continue right? have you thought about contacting another modder that could assisst you? i mean this is very basic and seems about 80% complete you just need someone else to help you make the ships and the movement another modder could make the animations for you, maybe you could find someone to restrict them to water and make them object like you click in the oar or wheel and then you steerstill craftable and placeable but just the whole equip is more like a walk on water armor mod, just a suggestion. but otherwise looks great cant wait to try it out when my anthology gets here

Maybe you could talk to the creator of Immersive Animations: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/34950/? or FNIS, which can add custom animations: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/11811/?
