You could smith arrows before...
Tech Jan 5, 2014 @ 7:50pm 
Would you be able to make this compatible with the arrows already craftable in the forge via the Dawnguard Addon? I don't really like having two different options to make arrows when I am smithing but I like the idea of putting perk points into arrow levels.
Jaycraft144 Dec 6, 2013 @ 12:31am 
how do you install it?
Projangam Sep 26, 2013 @ 10:21am 
cool but it is in dawnguard to
Clau Feb 2, 2013 @ 2:21pm 
Despite the fast leveling fix, I still level twice as fast, so I had to unsubscribe, sorry.
Dovakiin Nov 19, 2012 @ 11:05am 
ok,I'll give it ago and let you know the results
Boom  [author] Nov 19, 2012 @ 11:03am 
Such complexities are due to Bethseda's design of the game.

I would try changing the load order to have this mod load first, then have the other mod alter the arrow strength.

If it still doesn't work, then you can either just choose one of two mods, or modify the arrows in my mod for yourself.
Dovakiin Nov 19, 2012 @ 10:59am 
ok,by the way I noticed after I downloaded this mod that the damage of my arrows went back to normal ,not sure why
Boom  [author] Nov 19, 2012 @ 10:57am 
Most likely. I don't change the stats of any of the arrows.

Let me know if you try.
Dovakiin Nov 18, 2012 @ 8:24am 
is this compatible with stronger arrows+ ?cause it increases the damage of vanilla arrows
FoxXxtimus Prime Jul 13, 2012 @ 4:15pm 
Sweet! Good job man, and thanks for the info. =)
Boom  [author] Jul 13, 2012 @ 1:24pm 
Apparently some Smithing stats were changed for the 1.5 update, thus all mods prior to the update used the old stats. These stats were the cause of the rediculous experience.

After locating the Smithing Actor Values, I changed them to their default 1.5+ value, this resolving the issue.
FoxXxtimus Prime Jul 12, 2012 @ 3:09pm 
Just out of curiousity, what was the fix?
Boom  [author] Jul 12, 2012 @ 2:25pm 
Alright guys! I'm pretty sure I've solved the EXP issue. You can now continue to use the mod as usual. Let me know if anything else comes up.

Sorry it took so long to resolve this issue. It took me awhile to figure out the actual cause of the problem.

What the hell how come I level up by 8+ lvl when I smith an Iron Dagger
FoxXxtimus Prime May 9, 2012 @ 10:55pm 
Thanks boom! I have to say, I already Love this mod, and it'll be nice on my next toon not to go from level 1 to level 20 from crafting arrows, also, crafting fewer arrows would not bother me much either, I'm an ore stockpiler. =P
Boom  [author] May 7, 2012 @ 3:02pm 
I suppose I'll do a bit of math and revalue the arrows to where they grant a more reasonable amount of experience.
Denkan May 7, 2012 @ 7:02am 
lower the value please! :()
Denkan May 7, 2012 @ 7:01am 
Why don't you go on that i mean who would sell arrows, they wheigh nothing and they are good things to use in ranged battle. Believe me i would totally use this mod if you lower the exp thing even if you need to lower the value. (Who would shoot someone with arrows that are worth millions, i wouldn't)
Boom  [author] May 6, 2012 @ 12:06pm 
Since the 1.5 Update, experience from crafting has been based on the value of the item, value than a constant increase per craft, regardless of quantity. If the value of the arrows were deminished, then you couldn't get as much experience from it.

The currently formula for the experience is value*quantity. Unless you're okay with only crafting a couple of arrows, lowering the value is the only option, seeing as Bethseda didn't leave us with any other choice.
FoxXxtimus Prime May 4, 2012 @ 8:17pm 
What do you mean, "Diminsih the value of arrows"?
Boom  [author] May 4, 2012 @ 7:15pm 
The only fix for this is to deminish the value of Arrows. The CK has no way to change the experience received for crafting.
FoxXxtimus Prime May 1, 2012 @ 8:58am 
I agree with Bullet. You level up smithing WAY too fast with this mod on. How can we fix this?
Denkan Apr 13, 2012 @ 3:51am 
Too bad that the bug attacked you... I love the mod if it wouldn't be for the fast level up thing. Otherwise great job!! :()
Wintceas Apr 12, 2012 @ 6:32am 
Fix the fast levelling, please! You're breaking the game!
FinalArrow Apr 11, 2012 @ 11:51am 
THIS MOD IS BUGGED. I banged my head against the wall about what on earth could possible make my smithing level increase by 10 points for creating a goddamn Iron Armor, until I started eliminating mods, and this one turned out to be the party pooper.
PlayerTw0 Apr 7, 2012 @ 3:28pm 
i recommend when you start your game setting smithing automatically to 100 by player.setav smithing 100 that way you dont level up on smithing by itself. makes the game tougher and you still have to use alot of perk points to lvl up smithing anyhow.
Quotion Apr 6, 2012 @ 12:53pm 
its so much easier to get arrows besides iron and steel ones with this mod :)
Venture Apr 4, 2012 @ 2:23pm 
WARNING: THIS MOD IS BROKEN. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. You level up way too quickly in smithing. I made a single Hide Helmet and it increased my skill by 9 points. IT WILL MESS UP YOUR GAME.
Somecatfish Apr 4, 2012 @ 2:08am 
Something is bugged. Going from 51 to 58 smithing by smithing an iron dagger..
Anokoku Apr 3, 2012 @ 12:52pm 
its nice to be able to make some arrows, but jumping 10 levels for 80 arrows takes the fun out of smithing :(
plitz3 Apr 2, 2012 @ 11:44am 
u should add some Dovahkiin arrows also to this mod
Eles_cave Apr 1, 2012 @ 7:27am 
I had to disable the mod due to the leveling issue. Just jumped from level twenty to twenty-three in my over all character level because my smithing skill was increased by 40+ levels when I crafted a silver neclace and some iron boots...
a sniper Mar 30, 2012 @ 11:35pm 
an exp fix would be nice. the 20 level jump seems nice initially.... but then you have to fight things with the same stats you had at level 7 lol
Cakey Mar 29, 2012 @ 2:24pm 
This mod is so useful. I had a great experience using the few ebony arrows that I had - now I can just make more!
Jiggles Mar 28, 2012 @ 11:40am 
This is a great mod, love it. Do you reckon you could add dragon arrows maybe, firewood x1 dragonbone x1 and dragonscale x1 or something like that. But still a great mod.
ApuKamu Mar 28, 2012 @ 4:41am 
Smithing like 30 few elven arrows after 95 :o
ttpowell Mar 27, 2012 @ 3:32am 
Yeah for sure your mod give to much exp from smithing anything. :) lvl 7 to lvl 15 in 5 smithings of Hide armor. lol
Jackets Mar 26, 2012 @ 11:34am 
48 hours have passed.
Boom  [author] Mar 21, 2012 @ 9:46pm 
It appears that the change in experience is due to Bethesda's "fix" for Smithing.

I'm going to review the various experience changes and accommodate them for this mod. Expect an update within 48 hours.
Cygnus Mar 21, 2012 @ 6:02pm 
@cromwell I had the problem with crafting as well, and I dont have any mods that affect daggers. I disabled this and went back to normal xp received from smithing.
Boom  [author] Mar 19, 2012 @ 8:21pm 
@Cromwell
There's nothing I can do about that unless Bethesda gives me the ability to lower the experience received from this mod.

Also, this mod does nothing to effect the experience given from daggers. If you're leveling too fast from that, consult the person responsible, which is either the creator of a mod that tampers with daggers, or Bethesda themselves.
Gentleman Jack Frost Mar 18, 2012 @ 1:42pm 
Oh and up untill that point I really did like your mod im not trying to knock it or anything just that it doesnt play nice with the 1.5 beta on my machine.
Gentleman Jack Frost Mar 18, 2012 @ 1:36pm 
Hey with the beta 1.5 patch on your mod causes smithing to level up extreamly fast like 8 levels every time i craft a dagger. Had to disable your mod to stop it from happening.
Mitokandria (Tricks) Mar 17, 2012 @ 10:53pm 
Finally! A reason for my archer thief/assassin to work on smithing. :P
Old Ned Mar 6, 2012 @ 6:21pm 
Works perfectly for me, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
Boom  [author] Mar 5, 2012 @ 6:22pm 
@rywall

I'm not sure why it wouldn't be working. Check you list of plugins, and make sure that the mod is enabled.

To actually see it in use, you need to go to a forge, and select one of the materials that I've made available, and the recipe for that particular arrow should be in the list. If you don't have the required ingredients, it will be grayed out.
Mr. Dr. Prof. Sir Nopesalot Mar 3, 2012 @ 4:49pm 
its not working for me i subscribed am i supposed to do something else? plz help me so i can get to the epicness!!!
Boom  [author] Mar 3, 2012 @ 8:42am 
@Skiruna
Totally forgot about translations! Sorry! I'll definitely add that, and release a new version. Thanks for the notice.

@Dane
Arrows take enough to craft already. Besides, many arrows don't use feathers anyways. Also, adding a new Fletching mechanic to the game is a hassle. I'd prefer to not have it. If someone made a Fletching mod, then I'd try to make this one compatible with it.

@Cthulhu
Refer to the new list of locations in the description
Skiruna Mar 3, 2012 @ 12:57am 
Very nice, but I'm playing a german one... couldnt you please translate the perks and the arrows? :D
