Heart Breaker - A Killmove Mod gives you the ability to go all Temple of Doom on your enemies just before they die. If your enemy is injured enough to fall to one knee (i.e. Bleed Out), you will be able to press your activation button (Default "E") to rip out his/her Heart. A Heart, based on the race of your enemy, will then be added to your inventory. Any Hearts that match the Heart you ripped out will be removed from the NPC's inventory. (e.g. If you rip out the Heart of a Daedra, then you will no longer find a Daedra Heart on the corpse.) Dragonborn DLC Required.

Turn Heart Breaker on or off and start/stop all scripts from running.  Use before uninstalling.

Essential Kills
Perform the killmove on Essential NPCs and Special Essential NPCs. You will receive a message upon killing any Essential NPCs.

Dialogue Menu
Shows a menu that will allow you to select Rip Out Heart as an option when triggering the killmove.

Shield Un/Re-Equip
Automatically Un-Equip and Re-Equip your shield during the killmove.

Draw Weapons
If your weapons are drawn at the beginning of the killmove, they will be drawn automatically at the end of the killmove.

Spell Power
Adds a once a day Spell Power that allows you to put an enemy into the BleedingOut state in one hit.

Enemy drops his/her weapons at the beginning of the killmove.

Vampire/Werewolf Mode
Killmove can only be performed if you are a vampire or werewolf.

Briarhearts Only
Killmove can only be performed on Briarhearts.

Messages you receive about Essential NPCs and Hearts added to your inventory can be in 1st person, 3rd person, or turned off.

Choose which hearts, if any, are removed from NPCs and added to your inventory at the end of the killmove.

Magic Arm
Choose which glows, if any, are added to your arm during the killmove.

Explosive Heart Breaker
Set the likelihood of enemy exploding into gore upon having heart ripped out.

Things You Should Know
1. The Heart Ripping animation is from the Dragonborn DLC; this mod uses that animation, which is why it is required.

2. If an NPC is too close to a wall, or has weird positioning relative to you, it is possible that the animation will play, but you will rip the Heart out of thin air. This is also a problem with normal killmoves and there's nothing I can do about it.

3. There is a rare issue that happens when you activate the killmove where the camera forces you into third person, no animation plays and the NPC doesn't die. Like #2, this usually happens because of weird positioning. If you reposition yourself and try again, it should work properly.

4. When you kill Normal NPCs or Normal Essential NPCs with Explosive Heart Breaker enabled, you will be able to loot a gore pile for their items. Special Essential NPCs explode slightly faster, even with Explosive Heart Breaker disabled, and leave behind a blood soaked satchel filled with their gear.

5. The new Spell Power adds a magic effect to enemies and forces them into the BleedingOut animation, however, the animation may get interrupted, if that happens you can still activate the kill move on the NPC since the activation is based on the NPC having the magic effect, not actually being in the animation.

6. Punching an NPC when you have the Spell Power applied will do nothing, you must use a weapon.

7. Vampire/Werewolf Mode requires you to be in human form, not Beast or Lord form.  The skeleton for Beast and Lord form are different from the Human skeleton and therefore will not allow the killmove to work properly.

8. SkyUI and SKSE are required for the MCM to work; however, Heart Breaker will still work for you even if you aren't using them. To toggle features On/Off, use the following console commands:

Set HB_ModActive to # (Default: 1)
Set HB_EssentialKills to # (Default: 0)
Set HB_DialogueMenu to # (Default: 1)
Set HB_Hearts to # (Default:3)(Off: 0, Vanilla: 1, Custom: 2, All On: 3)
Set HB_ShieldRemove to # (Default: 1)
Set HB_ExplosivePercent to # (Default: 0)(0-100)
Set HB_Disarm to # (Default: 1)
Set HB_DrawWeapons to # (Default: 1)
Set HB_BriarOnly to # (Default: 0)
Set HB_VampWere to # (Default: 0)
Set HB_FirstPersonMSG to # (Default: 1)(Off: 0, Third: 1, First: 2)
Set HB_MagicArmVar to # (Default: 0)(Off: 0, Light Glow: 1, Light Glow 2: 2, Heavy Glow: 3, Heavy Glow 2: 4)
0 is Off and 1 is On.

NOTE: In order to add the Spell Power, you must type help "Heart Breaker" into the console, get the ID, and add it by typing Player.AddSpell ######## into the console, replacing the # with the ID you got using the previous command.

Incompatible Mods
1. Mods that make you use the activate button on NPCs that are down on one knee (i.e. Bleeding Out), unless that mod has a dialogue menu that pops up first asking you what you want to do. If it does, then enabling Heart Breaker's Dialogue Menu option may allow you to choose between heart ripping and whatever the other mod does.

2. Mods that edit behavior files, which may cause the issue described in #3 of the Things You Should Know section to happen every time you try and execute the killmove.

Use Mod Organizer, Nexus Mod Manager, or extract the .7z file and place the Meshes folder, Textures folder, Scripts folder, Sound folder, and the HeartBreaker.esp into your Skyrim\Data folder. Enable the HeartBreaker.esp in the Skyrim Launcher under the Data Files section. You should overwrite all files when updating.
