Reverse Crafting

thanks to gamespot for featuring my mod in a spotlight! 8:22 - 10:25

Hello! Its 3PSQWERTY back with a brand new mod. This mod addresses a feature that I have thought was missing from this wonderful game for quite some time. Smithing is a slow and tedious process to level up. also, if a smelter is available, why can't weapons be smelted down into their base metals? So, thats what this mod does. Weapons can be smelted back into most of their base ingredients. Be sure to let me know about any bugs or any ideas you have for future versions of the mod. Yes, this system can be abused, but it is also realistic, so don't complain about how its abuseable, its not my fault that you are tempted into abusing it. Thanks!

UPDATE: I have started adding Jewlery! At the workbench, you can now remove gems from gold necklaces, I will finish up gold rings and move on to silver soon.

WARNING: Be advised that if you have a weapon that you wish to keep, don't have it in your inventory when you go to the smelter. You may loose it.

Here is what can be smelted:

-Iron Weapons
-Steel Weapons
-Elven Weapons
-Dwarven Weapons
-Silver Weapons
-Ebony Weapons
-Orcish Weapons
-Malachite Weapons
-Gold Jewlery (WIP)

Here is what cannot be smelted:

-Daedric Weapons
-Silver Jewlery (WIP)

On a side note, I run a Youtube channel dedicated to teaching people to mod various games and creating engaging content. A mod spotlight will be going up shortly. check me out here:

How simple would it be to make it so that reverse sm ithing produces 1 less ingot than the number required? I'm thinking of revising this so as not to be exploitable.

I have he mod but for some reason it doesn't come up with the option to smelt down weapons. Do I have to go to a certain place to do this? Or have a certain rank in smithy??
