v1   - Initial release
v1.1 - Added more impact sounds for different materials
     - Tweaked the sound volumes
     - Added 4 new greatbows
     - Added 5 new greatarrows
     - Added DLC and NON-DLC versions (see "ESP Types" list for details)
     - Added a Perk and Enchantment versions (see "ESP Types" list for details)
     - And some more minor tweaks and details

- Thanks to Oriviath for helping me out with enchantments on V1.1
- Auriel's Greatbow does not have "sunlight artillery" power when shooting the sun
- An Auriel's Bow is required to craft an Auriel's Greatbow but you can also convert your Auriel's Greatbow
  back to the original Bow version in a crafting forge, i made it that way to prevent people from making several
  copies of Auriel's Bows/Greatbows which is suppose to be a unique weapon
- Bloodcursed Elven Arrows, apart from blocking the sun has no other special effects, since i cannot make the
  Bloodcursed Greatarrows block the sun, i made it different by making it a very fast and very accurate projectile
  by increasing its projectile speed and flattening its trajectory
- (MISC) I was never really a fan of over-sized weapons, especially swords like the buster sword but when i watched Game of Thrones and saw the giant's bow, then i thought it would be nice to have that in skyrim, so i searched and found siege bows mod but it was hidden by the author so i made this, and when i was making this, i intentionally planned to make this mod have clear advantages and disadvantages over normal bows

Cheat = And if you want to easily get these bows and arrows then just type "help greatbow container" and you'll see stuff like these
CONT: (16000d6c) 'Greatbow Container'
- then type "player.placeatme 16000d35" and close the console
- a chest will spawn near you that contains all the greatbows and greatarrows
- after you've taken what you need, just open the console again and click on the chest and type disable on the console to remove the chest from the game world
- if you accidentally deleted the wrong object then type enable to spawn it back, then just click on the right object and disable the chest
- NOTE: those numbers (16000d6c) are just an example
