Description:

Lost Art of the Blackmith adds every missing weapon and armor improvement recipe to Skyrim. Useful crafting recipes for Silver weapons, royal armguards, lockpicks, work axes, and Imperial light armor are added as well.

This mod is lore-friendly, balanced, and should work with any language. The upgrades are determined by your smithing skills, enhancements, perks, and the base damage of the weapon.

LAotB can be enhanced with Smithing Perks Overhaul and Weapon and Armor Fixes by Headbomb. With all three mods, all vanilla weapons should behave consistently and with the same advantages of every other weapon in the game.

Dragon Priest Daggers
Drainblood BattleAxes
Drainheart Swords
Drainspell Bows
Falmer Supple Bows
Fine Armguards
Forks
Gilded Wristguards
Headsmans Axes
Honed Falmer Swords
Honed Falmer War Axes
Knifes

Installation:

Extract the .esp file to your \Skyrim\data directory, and enable the file in your game launcher.

If you correctly installed the mod and your Data Files option is greyed out in the launcher, you will need to do the following.
1. Go to Documents\My Games\Skyrim
2. Open up the SkyrimPrefs.ini file
3. Look about half way down for [Launcher]
4. Add "bEnableFileSelection=1" to the bottom of that section without quotes and save the file.
The Data Files option should now appear on the launcher.

This mod will not conflict with other mods. If the same recipe is included in another mod, however, it may appear twice ingame.

Uninstallation:
In the rare event that you want to uninstall this mod, simply delete the ESP. Items that have been upgraded will not lose their improvements.

Known Bugs:
None! Go find some.

Notes:


Most of the new recipes appear in the misc section because this mod does not overwrite any vanilla (or modded) stats for the items.

Version 1.45 includes all missing crafting recipes that I am aware of. If you discover more, please let me know in the comments section or by messaging me. Enjoy!
