1. Description

The mod name says it all.

Seriously, you need an explanation?

OK, I guess I have to write something at least.
Compared to JZbai's Manual Crossbow Reload, Manual Crossbow Reload Lite is... Lite.
Well, the mod's name is changed to Reloading Overhaul, but it is still Lite.
It has all the essential features, which is, manual crossbow reloading, but it does not have any extra spell, item, menu, ... no. No nothing.
(Except one MCM menu... but come one, MCM is awesome.)
You just need to press Middle Mouse Button to reload.
Everything else, me and my script is going to take care of for you.

Also, with version 3, Reloading Overhaul now has an additional functionality: Cycle Ammo.
By pressing the hot key (V, B, or double tapping Left Bumper) you can cycle through your previously equipped arrows and bolts.
I strongly recommend using Third & Fourth Mouse Button for hot keys if you are using a gaming mouse.
No need to waste your precious hot keys to half a dozen different bolts!
This functionality is separated into arrow module and bolt module, so you don't need to worry about getting bolts and arrows mixed up.

You want specific number about how light this mod is?
Manual Crossbow Reload Lite has 3 script files and an esp. That's all.
One of them is actually for MCM, while the other one is just to check player sheathing its weapon.
So there is actually just 1 script that controls everything.

You will get naked as soon as Reloading Overhaul is installed, so don't panic!
Just get your clothes on before anyone else finds you naked, and equip your crossbow.
Then, go find a dragon, shoot a bolt to its head, and RUN!!!
Something you can't do without Reloading Overhaul. You're welcome.

2. My Other Mods

Unique Unique:
You think artifacts have boring effects that can be copied with high level enchanting skill?
Not anymore if you have Unique Unique! Come read description to find out what's going to change.

Conjure Atronach Scroll Fix:
simple esp that fixes scroll of conjure atronach. Yes, it is broken if you have Elemental Potency perk.

3. Known Issues

-When you change your bolts inside inventory menu, sometimes inventory menu's respond speed is not enough and it may look like you are equipping your previous bolts. Just close the inventory menu, and you will find out that your character is equipping the right bolts.
-You are not going to be able to add arrows and bolts to favorites menu, just as it was in Manual Crossbow Reload by JZbai. This is because there is no way for the scripts to tell if an ammo is an arrow or a bolt. Later versions will include user-defined hot key function for arrows.

4. Special Thanks

-Thanks to JZbai for his great idea of manual crossbow reloading.
-Thanks to NohmUhyun for awesome cover image.
-Thanks to Genebriss for teaching me how to disable no bolt message.
