I never liked how Sawmills didn't do anything, so I fixed them. Now sawmills will give the player 20 firewood when a log is cut, and 20 firewood when the mill resets, for a total of 40 firewood after cutting a log using the sawmill.

-40 firewood , Decreased the firewood weight to 1.00
-20 firewood , Decreased the firewood weight to 1.00, NPC's give you wood

Note that the firewood is added to your inventory a couple seconds after the log is cut, just watch for the note in the upper left of your screen. This mod is simple and effective, so I don't think there's any way it could cause a mod conflict.

That's really all there is to it, just wanted to add to the immersion of the game. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Rev 1: Changed the sawmill so that you get 20 firewood each time you cut a log, instead of 10. If you want the previous version of 10 firewood, please see the Nexus link below.
Rev 2: NPC's can no longer give you wood by using the sawmill.
Rev 3: Fixed Steam upload (hopefully). Please let me know. Firewood weight changed back to vanilla. Nexus has reduced firewood weight version, see link below.

I have placed this mod on the Skyrim Nexus,
so if you are having any problems it may be because of Steam. You can download the mod on the Nexus and drop the files into Skyrim Data folder manually to see if that works.

Should be noted that (As stated before) If there is a Npc in the mill with you You Will Not Get Firewood else this mod works great and is alot better then haveing to chop wood.

This doesn't work if you have the Hearthfire DLC, since it conflicts with the sawmills from Hearthfire. For anyone with Hearthfire DLC, the sawmills make an item called Sawn Logs which are only used for building player homes.
If you want to create a mod I'd suggest doing this:
- Activating campfires play an animation + it gives a effect.
- Usable gran mills to make an ingredient.
- Choppable trees.
- Farming whitout heartfire dlc.
- Fill up water bottle from any lake.

Etc, if you do this, it will be one of the best immersive mods and i would be freakin happy! :D
Can you give me a script, that will:
- When the player interacts with a campfire, the player plays a animation and that he gets a special effect. Please?

So does this mod work for the steam workshop download, or only from nexus? Cuz i'm sure some people who get nothing from using the sawmill might have downloaded from the SW, and are complaining a bit. Such as Demonsage here.

For some reason this mod wont work, Ive used the sawmill plenty of times and havent gotten a single piece of wood from it

Good work!

I think this would make more since if doing this gave you large pieces of wood to chop into smaller ones the size of the normal firewood. You still get more for the extra work, but it makes a bit more sense.
