Update 3/11/2012 v.2b
Removed chattiness of mod.
Added ability to mount horse in sneak mode if facing same direction as horse. Pretty much when facing rear of horse.

First revision of MD Saddlebags for Skyrim. No visuals at the moment, but the core functionality is here.

Activating your horse normally mounts the horse as usual.
Activating your horse while sneaking opens the saddlebags.

Horses have a "maximum" carry weight of around 400-600lbs depending on the horse. Carrying 600 lbs., the horses walk very slowly (like the player while encumbered), but you can still add more weight to the horse if you want. At 200-300 lbs., the horse moves normally. The speed of the horse is scaled linearly between 200-300 and 400-600.

This is a beta release, so it's pretty chatty with lots of status messages in the upper left hand corner. Be sure to make backups of your saves before trying this out. If things seem to be working well, I'll take out the messages and do a regular release.

You'll have to mount your horse normally once before the new script becomes active and sneak activate works.

No love for Shadowmere or any horses other than the ones you can buy at the 5 stables.
