Review by Gopher. Thank You!

Note about clipping: If your character wears thin armor there is almost no clipping and together with the quick shot perk clipping isn't noticeable at all.

What you Get

You are getting 16 (if you have both dlcs) Scoped Bows. 9 of them are craftable 7 are replacers of unique vanilla bows.
Each bow does 3-5 points more base damage than vanilla. Each Bow is made as lore-friendly as possible.

These bows are designed to enhance Precision and Immersion when playing Without Crosshair and Hud.

Full Bow List:
(craftable)
Dwarven Sniper Bow - Classic
Dwarven Sniper Bow - Dark
Dwarven Sniper Bow - Silver
Daedric Wrath
Nordic Assault Bow (Dragonborn)
Sniper Dragonbone Bow (Dawnguard)
Scoped Glass Bow
Sighted Hunting Bow
Iron Sight Bow

(replacer)
Auriel's Bow (Dawnguard)
Glass Bow of the Stag Prince (Dragonborn)
Bound Bow
Dwarven Black Bow of Fate (Dragonborn)
Angi's Bow
Zephyr (Dawnguard)
Nightingale Bow



How it Works

There are 3 Circles on each bow. One Circle is for aiming while standing, the other two Circles are lining up when sneaking to give you a more precise option.
So instead of having an immersion breaking Hud-Crosshair-Overlay you can aim precisely with the scopes/sights of the bow itself which is part of the gameworld and therefore more immersive. The fact that all bows are swaying a little bit when aiming enhances this Immersion even further.



How To Get in Game

Crafting:
They Can be crafted at any Forge (respective smithing perk required. example: The "Dwarven Sniper" requires dwarven smithing, the "Daedric Wrath" requires daedric smithing and so on...)
They are improvable and enchantable.

Finding/Obtaining:
The "Dwarven Sniper Bow - Classic" is craftable but also placed on the top Platform of the Hall of Rumination in Blackreach.
The "Dwarven Black Bow Of Fate" can be found In Solstheim/Kagrumez.
Auriel's Bow is received from Gelebor during the dawnguard quest Touching the Sky.
The Glass Bow Of the Stag Prince can be obtained from Falas Selvayn at the Ramshackle Trading Post.
Angi's Bow is given to the Dragonborn after completing Angi's archery training in the unmarked quest Composure, Speed, And Precision.
Zephyr can be obtained during the quest Lost to the Ages.
The Nightingale bow can be obtained during the Thieves Guild questline.

Cheating (Console Comand):
open the console with ^
1.)type: help "Name of the Bow" it will show up with it's id (instead of name of the bow type the name of the bow ...Understood?)
2.)type: player.additem xxxxxxxx 1 (instead of x type the numbers of the id - the 1 at the end stands for the number of bows that you will get)
"NO Dude, I can NOT give you the ID's of each Bow because the ID depends on your loadorder."

Recommendations

These bows are made to play without crosshair, have i mentioned that? -Seriously, turn that thing off! :)

MODS:
I highly recommend to use:
ABT - Arrows and Bolts Tweaks (50% faster arrows)
+ Disable the HUD (much more fun) or at least disable crosshair and sneakeye using:
Immersive Hud
Also useful:
Simple Crosshair Choose "oblivion style sneak eye" to move the sneak eye down betwen health and magica bar. works great in combination with iHud.

Better eagle eye and steady hand perks for a higher zoom-in with eagle eye perk.


SKYRIM.INI TWEAKS: Highly Recommended! (make a backup first)
[Actor]
fVisibleNavmeshMoveDist=12288.0000
[Combat]
fMagnetismStrafeHeadingMult=0.0
fMagnetismLookingMult=0.0
f1PArrowTiltUpAngle=0.7
f3PArrowTiltUpAngle=0.7

For information about the ini-tweaks read the "ABT - Arrows and Bolts Tweaks" mod description. (link above)

Compatibility and Issues

This Mod is Compatible with Everything that does Not change the 1stperson skeleton.
If you are using this mod in combination with a changed 1stperson skeleton the scopes won't be accurate or completely displaced which makes them useless.

Not compatible:
Lower 1stperson weapons
Staffs 4 Lighting
Edited Versions of XP32 Maximum Skeleton

Semi Compatible:
RaceMenu skeleton Sliders for XPMS -default body will work.(don't change: spine 0, spine 1,spine 2, hand)
Immersive First Person View -only if you set it to vanilla bow aiming

Issues:
Clipping. (If your character wears thin armor there is almost no clipping and together with the quick shot perk clipping isn't noticeable at all.)
Someone told me that when activating predator vision ingame the targeting lenses are black.
Someone told me that the scope fogs up (goes opaque) if you're sneaking while wearing anything with the Boethiah's Mail enchantment.

If you find more incompatible mods or Issues let me know so i can insert them here.
