Uncrafting -uncraft weapons and armors-

Dragonborn Add-On:

I know there's already other 'uncrafting' mods around, but I felt like I needed to make my own, complete version.

-You can uncraft any craftable armors and weapons back into their main ingredients (for instance, you can uncraft an iron cuirass and you'll get 5 iron ingots out of it)

-You can also uncraft fur armors, which will yield the same amount of leather as their leather counterparts, but minus 1 (for instance, uncrafting a leather cuirass will give 4 leather, uncrafting a fur cuirass will give 3)

-All of the 'uncrafting recipes' added by this mod are used with the smelter or the tanning rack, I'm pretty sure you can figure out what recipes go with what crafting thingamajig.

-To avoid cluttering your smelting/tanning recipe list with useless guff, the recipes for uncrafting an item will only show up if you have that item. And the relative smithing perk.

-When uncrafting a daedric item you can choose whether you want it to yield the ebony ingots or the daedra heart. Similarly, when uncrafting a dragonplate armor pieces you can choose whether you want the dragon scales or the dragon bones.

-You CANNOT uncraft enchanted items.

-You CAN uncraft improved items. If you have more than one items of the same kind (say, 5 steel battleaxes) and one or more of them are improved, the first to be uncrafted will be the non-improved ones. If you have more items of the same kind and at different 'improvement levels', I don't know in what order they'll go, so make sure to remove the item you DON'T want to uncraft from your inventory before uncrafting.

To-do list (in order of priority from highest to lowest):
1. Fix any errors I may have made with the recipes. If you find any of them, please report them to me via comments.

P.S. This is the very first mod I upload to the Workshop, so if I've fracked something up please go easy on me.
Also, if you have any suggestions, feel free to give them to me.

Weird that the ebony blade's recipe isn't working... But I have to say, this mod hasn't been in development for over a year. I apologise for that, but I really haven't had the time. And personally I've been using Skyrim Redone, which essentially incorporates an even better system than mine, with corresponding perks. Maybe one day I'll revive this mod, maybe I'll make others. But for now, I'm afraid to say, don't expect anything. You shouldn't have problems uninstalling the mod though, as it literally only adds crafting recipes.

Released an update that fixes a couple of oversights and finally published the Dragonborn Add-On! Link at the very top of the description!

P.S. I decided I will not add the possibility to uncraft dragonbone weapons, as they're quite literally made of bones, and turning bone blades into what they were before they were "molded" is kind of like sewing leather strips together to make a normal piece of leather. Doesn't make much sense.

Just made a little update that allows you to uncraft all the arrows that are craftable in Dawnguard without actually needing Dawnguard. The Dragonborn is yet again delayed by the fact that I discovered a whole crafting system for staves... Which I have to delve deeper into. Also, I just realized I'll have to make an add-on for the dragonbone weapons in Dawnguard.

@[OTG]Taff it is not, but I'll probably add it together with the everyday items Seewhyseeoh suggested. For now, I have to finish the Dragonborn add-on, which is being slightly delayed by a pesky little thing called "social life".

Is jewelry also part of this mod?
