Help (New to making mods)
Hi I'm trying to make a simple mod that changes the iron war axe a bit. I have watched videos but I can't figure it out. If somebody would help me that would help alot! If you help me I'll give partial credit to you. I will also point people towards your mods!

change it how?

Change it by making it do more damage faster and make a seperate special axe off of it.

Making a seperate, special axe:

find the axe in the creation kit.
Right click, select Duplicate.
Find the new object below it. It should have the same name, with "Duplicate001" next to it.
Right click, select Rename, and rename it to what you want. This will not change the actual axe name.

Change Actual Axe Name:

Double click on your new axe in list.
The name should be displayed near the top left.
Change it to what you want.
Don't change the ID. (The ID is used by the game to identify things. It's not the same as the name displayed to the player in the game.)

More Damage:

Faster:
In the weapons page, go to the "Game Data" tab.
Find the "Speed" variable.
Make it lower for faster speeds, higher for slower speeds.

More Damage:
In the weapons page, in the "Game Data" tab.
Find the "Damage" variable.
Make it higher.

As a custom, new item (made by duplication), you will need to place it in the world or gain it via console commands.

Or make a recipe for it in the forges.

Did you put it in the game world?

Did you search for it via console?

Ummmmmmm ill get back to you on that

Can't figure that out
Adura 1 Mar 13 @ 3:46pm 
figure out what you named the items ID. (like, say IronWarAxe01, or whatever it happened to be)

In Skyrim, hit the ~ button. This opens up the console

Type in:
help ID_Name

Where ID_Name is the ID you gave your duplicate item.
(example: help IronWarAxe01)


It should pop up with the item you made, and a series of numbers and letters. (Something like
1003DA5B (IronWarAxe01)
)

once you have this number, type the following and enter in:

player.additem ID_CODE 1

where ID_CODE is the sequence of numbers and letters.

(example: player.additem 1003DA5B 1)


This will add your mod item to your inventory in the game.

I type in ironwaraxe and nothing happens there's nothing to click to change it
Adura 1 Mar 13 @ 4:06pm 
is IronWarAxe what you named the ID for it?

try using the game Name you set for it instead, if the ID doesn't work.
