Insane Armory - Archery Bows and Crossbows


This would not be possible without NifSkope and 3DS MAX NIF Plugin by Wix

Modification changing thickness of bows and crossbows by 25~50 percent.
(depending on the options selected during installation)

Does not contain any plugin (*.esp *.esm) replaces only meshes (*.nif) files.
Is compatible with any modification which edits bows and replaces textures
but does not change meshes.

I play Skyrim using first-person view 90 percent of time.
In skyrim there is no possibility of effectively shooting and hitting
target other than view from first person.(personal opinion)
And just for view from first-person I created this modification.


It can be installed and uninstalled with Wrye Bash or Nexus Mod Manager at any time without any complications.
(WB and NMM after uninstalling restores previously replaced files)

Like what I did, go back and support me.
This is the best way to thank me for my work.

I tried to do everything as best I can.
If you notice any mistakes, errors please let me know.
Comments, suggestions, pictures, any feedback etc... greatly appreciated.
