Have you ever left behind tons of useful stuff, simply because you could not carry anymore? How many dragon bones, dwemer scrap or other valuable things were abandoned? Too much to count. But now, there is a solution just for you! "Bandolier - Bags and Pouches" offers you a wide selection of various equipment items that should ease your burden! And it can be used with nearly every armor!

What does this mod have to offer?
This mod offers you many items that will increase your carry weight. At the moment, there are 7 new slots for the equipment: Chest, Back Left, Back Right, Front Left, Front Right, Left Side and Right Side. Different items can be quipped into different slots, so you can combine up to 7 different pieces. At the moment, there are 67 different items available.

Small pouches add 25 extra carry weight.
Satchels, bags and box pouches add 50.
Bandoliers add 75.
Large Bandoliers add 100.
But you can also use an optional file that provides no enchantments by default. Copy the .esp file into your data folder and overwrite the existing file.

To see which slots the items are, using and how you can combine the items, look at the screenshot above.

You can find videos showing the mod's features under "Videos" tab.
Keep in mind that most of them were made with older versions of the mod.

How to install:
Extract the files from the archive into your Data folder. Check the Dr_Bandolier.esp in your "data files", in the launcher.

How to uninstall:
If you wish to uninstall the mod, make sure to unequip the items first. Otherwise you will still have the permanent effect on your character.

How to get:
All items are crafted at the tanning rack. However, some items may require extra things that can be crafted at the forge.
Black Dyed Leather is crafted by combining Leather and Frostbite Venom.
Assorted Buckles are crafted at the forge from Steel Ingots.
To make a bandolier with a shoulderpad, you must first make a regular one, and then, combining it with an extra piece of leather at the tanning rack, you can create bandoliers with shoulderpads.
To make Dark Botherhood Items, you must first get the recipe from thier sanctuary. If you cant find it, look for the spoiler in the bottom of this page.
You can upgrade your small bandoliers into the large ones. The recipe will only show if you have small bandolier in your inventory.

Please note:
There might still be some bugs. Please, report them (just make sure they are not already on the "known issues" list bellow.

Feel free to upload your beautiful screenshots to this mod!

Works with these mods:
This is a small list of mods that use some of the special slots, and do not conflict with this one.
Black Sacrament Armor mods (but left satchels share same slot)
Cloaks of Skyrim
Winter Is Coming - Cloaks
Leather Backpack
Sabre Gear Backpack /// Fur Bag - Backpack
Dwemer Goggles and Scouter
Wearable Lanterns (Uses same slot as the back right pouch)

Known mod conflicts:
The mod might conflict with any other mods that use the same slots (48, 55, 53, 57, 58, 52, 59).
Angelic Halos and Demonic Horns (Items in that mods use a couple of the same slots)
The Aesir Armor mod (A few decorative items in the mod use the same slots)
oS - Schlongs of Skyrim (Cant have armor and left-side items equipped)

Known issues and bugs:

Sadly, one cannot avoid all the conflicts and possible problems. Here is the list I have so far:

*The Back right book holder is not shaded correctly and may appear darker/lighter than it should. At the moment, I have no idea what is causing it. Please use the back left instead.
*Some items may appear a little bit too far from the body. It is an issue that is almost impossible to solve, be cause of many different armor sizes. It is especially very visible on naked characters.
*When dropped, items sound like they are made of metal. No idea why it is happening, I have tried many things to fix it, with no avail.

Huge thanks to all the people on Bethesda Forums who helped me to sort out a few problems I had with the creation of this mod.
