Sorry in front for the plain and simple txt based look of this page ( I'm lazy :D )
Everything here was made for my personal use. However since i use tons of mods made by others I feel in a way "obligated" to share it with the community. Even if just one person find it useful it will be worth it ^^

This is a SkyRe Friendly replacement esp for DJjojo's Basic Crossbows Collection.
Removed most ( im still in the process of testing ) unnecessary/extra effects, stats, enchantments etc. etc. that are not needed for SkyRe.
Crossbows like Skull Dragon or Light Daedric are for visual flavor only ( tho i did give them tiny crt dmg boost ).
Recipes was fixed ( double entry etc. ), and adjusted to SkyRe.
Since this replacement rely on Reprocer, there is no need for any extra updates - unless i find bugs.
After updating SkyRe or Reprocer files, all u need to do is to patch this mod with reprocer again.

Important notes :
1. Crossbows and bolts damage is dependent on Reprocer Stats.xml version - like "Balbor and Steelsouls SkyRe ReProccer Project" for example.
2.Due to how Ballistic perk works( and i have no intentions of moding that ), all the crossbows will be available for crafting once u get that perk.
U wont be however able to temper, upgrade or craft bolts for them. For that u still need the proper material smithing perk. So making an Ebony Crossbow when u don't have the ebony perk is pointless. That would be cheating anyway :>
3.LvL lists are included- with a fix for dwarven crossbow.

1. Replace the original esp file with this one.
2. Pick one Stats.xml version and run Reprocer.jar - or apply manually tweaks I described below. (u may want to make a copy of ur current Stats.xml )
3. Marge lvl lists or skip if using non lvl list version.
4. U may also apply Focus perk tweak - but thats just an extra and is not related to patch itself.

>>>>!!!!!<<<< Second step is optional but prevent crossbows from getting overpowered! >>>>!!!!!<<<<

Conflicts : NONE - however don't use with qotsafans CBC Patches!

Additional - optional - steps ( long and boring description ) :
1. Since this mod add more crossbows and bolts to damage progression u may wont to apply few tweaks to avoid rebalancing the game. For that find those lines in stats.xml and make them look like this :

26 <-- here

and :

5 <-- here

10 <-- here

But b4, make a copy of Stats.xml as it can get corrupted if edited improperly!
You may ofc input different statistics and lower the damage bit more if u find high tier crossbows/bolts to powerful - SkyRe was designed with progression stopping at Dwarven after all.

2. If you are using Balbor version of Reprocer u may have notice that they boosted light weapons and projectiles and nerfed heavy ( especially orcish ). This make crossbows statistic rather wierd with elven being better then Dwarven and dwarven being better then orcish. Also light weight projectiles - esp bolts - doing more damage then heavy ones is a NO NO for me.
SkyRe makes heavy projectiles slow, short ranged and inaccurate but hard hitting.
This is obvious for me and i personally dislike the idea of an Elven arrow hitting as hard as ebony...
I also dislike the huge nerf to orcish material. So I made a tweaked version of stats.xml - based on balbor's for compatibility sake - that bring back to life heavy arrows/bolts and weapons. It also put daedric in front of dragon and starting with glass/ebony up, add extra small difference in dmg progression.
Simply hate having ebony weapon that do 161 dmg, dragon 162, and daedric with 163...
Oh! As an extra i did put entry for recent Bosmer Armor pack arrows :]

3. If u like me dislike the idea of crossbows ignoring 100% of armor and find it diversion breaking then "SkyRe_Crosbow Perk Tweak" is for you. This mini mod tweak will change focus perk to add only 5% ( was 10 ) extra armor penetration per rank up to 75%. To make that perk attractive for crossbow user again i did put extra 3% attack speed per rank for CROSSBOWS ONLY.
Thats extra 15% attack speed* for ur crossbows which will also improve slow gameplay.

*I advice to lower the speed boost of "lightweight" version of the crossbows to prevent balance issues. Change "0.25" to 0.20 or 0.15. Still a 10% or 5% speed more with all 5 focus perks. Ofc all this tweaking is included in the Stats.xml i uploaded. Went for speed as adding dmg bonus to Focus would go against SkyRe concept for crossbows and I hate how slow they are - even tho thats realistic ;p

btw: I also made a mini mod for SkyRe that turn the original dragonbone greatsword to Bastard Sword ( I use other mod to fill greatsword role), and plan on making a mod that will allow upgrade of UNIQUE armor/weapons with Arcane Smithing perk rather then material based. Feel free to post any ideas or interest in those two :)
