Left Hand Rings

Left Hand Rings by duggelz, version 1.5

Adds rings that are worn on the left hand. You can wear two rings at once, one on each hand. These rings can be crafted, enchanted, bought from merchants, and found randomly as treasure.

== How It Works ==

This mod adds left-handed rings to mirror the regular right-handed
rings in Skyrim. Their names have the word "(Left)" after them. For
example, "Silver Garnet Ring (Left)". When equipped, they will appear
on the first finger of the left hand. NPCs and followers will equip
left-handed rings in their inventory.

Left-handed rings will always start as non-magical, but can be
enchanted like any other ring. They can be crafted at a forge using
the same ingredients as right-handed rings. They will randomly appear
in merchant inventories and treasure chests.

Three special rings, the "Bond of Matrimony", the "Ring of Hircine",
and the "Bone Hawk Ring", can be converted to left-handed versions at
a blacksmith's forge. You must have a regular right-handed version in
your inventory already. Then activate the forge, and look under
"Jewelry" for the recipe.

== Install ==

Steam Workshop: Click the green "Subscribe" button. You may also need
to start the Skyrim launcher, click on "Data Files", and make sure
that "LeftHandRings.esp" is listed and has a checkmark in the columns
labeled "Load?" and "Subscribed?". If you have the Dawnguard DLC, you
should also subscribe to Left Hand Rings - Dawnguard.

When you first install this mod, you'll be given a single left-handed
silver ring. This will let you know that the mod is working.

There are two .esp files in this mod. If you have Dawnguard
installed, you need _BOTH_ of them active. One is called
"LeftHandRings.esp" and the other is called "LeftHandRings -

== Uninstall ==

Unequip any left-handed ring you have equipped, save your game, and
exit Skyrim.

Steam Workshop: Click the green "Unsubscribe" button from the Steam
Workshop page. Then start the Skyrim launcher, click on "Data Files",
highlight "LeftHandRings.esp", and click "Delete Selected".

== Limitations ==

Left-handed rings don't show up when you're in first-person view
because it would break numerous other mods. If you want to fix this,
read the following Guide by Shadowjin[].

It would be great if this mod could just switch any ring from right to
left handed on the fly. This is possible with SKSE but requires some
tricky scripting. In my experience, the result tends to be a bit
glitchy. In the interest of keeping my mod simple, I haven't added
this feature. But if you want it, look at the mods "TwoRings" by
Dienes, or "EK_RingLimiter" by ekroemer.

It would be great if this mod had left handed versions of the Ring of
Namira and all the werewolf and vampire rings. It doesn't. These
rings are hooked into various existing scripts that I would have to
modify. That would break the Unofficial Skyrim patches and anything
else (vampire mods, werewolf mods) that also modified these scripts.
Be happy I got the Ring of Hircine working.

It would be great if I manually made left-handed versions of all
160ish enchanted rings. I was too lazy to do this, but juf0816
wasn't! Here is the link to his mod:

Left Hand Enchanted Rings[]

You get experience for switching rings at the forge. This is hard to
fix, so just try to ignore it. Pretend you crafted one more iron
dagger while grinding Smithing.

== Compatibility ==

Left-handed rings use Biped Object slot 60 ("miscellaneous"). This
might conflict with other mods that use non-standard body part
locations, such as bandanas, barettes, etc. A conflict means that
you can't equip two items at the same time in the same body slot. Let
me know if you find conflicts.

Modified to use other slots:
* Slot 56 - Left Hand Rings Modified[]

* Bandolier - Bags and Pouches
* Cloaks of Skyrim
* Left Hand Rings Visible in 1st Person by Yegmi
* SkyJubs Invisible Helmets - No Helmet Mod
* Skyre races for left hand rings
* Wearable Lanterns
* Vampire Beast Blood Ring left hand

Mods With Slot Conflicts:
* Bandanas of Skyrim
* Black Tower and Black Sacrament Armor pack (Barette)
* Dual Sheath Redux
* Gemtastic
* Haven Bag

Running into a strange problem where loading the game unequips my left handed ring and I lose the enchantment on it, and I get a message "such and such ring (left) added to inventory".

You would of thinked that this would of already been in skyrim and not in one addon.

This has been helpful while still being realistic. Nice!

Thanks, I was hesitant to install the mod that allows you to wear 10 rings for all 10 of your fingers(too op) but I also found it frustrating having to pick between enchantments. This mod allows me to use more enchantments, while not being op
