Balanced Sneak Archery

Ever played a sneak archer and got bored of one-shotting everything at level 20+? Me too. It does not make much sense to me that crouching can magically triple a bow's damage output, nor the fact that a skill that can ultimately make you invisible also turns you into a veritable cannon.

The solution? Sneak attacks with bows and crossbows do half damage by default, upgradable to 3/4 damage with Deadly Aim. Now you must choose between the safety of the shadows, and full damage. After all, if you're crouching and concentrating on not being seen, you shouldn't be able to aim and draw back your bow as well as if you were standing, right?

As a bonus, you also won't hear that annoying THUNK sound on sneak attacks. This is actually an unintended side effect, as the game won't display sneak attack messages with multipliers lower or equal to 1.

Needless to say, powergamers will not enjoy this mod.
