INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


Mod Organizer
 without Customizable Camera


Mod Organizer by itself will auto-merge the included INI edits with your "Skyrim.ini". So just install SRA through Mod Organizer and your ready to play.

Mod Organizer with Customizable Camera
 
If you are using Customizable Camera with Mod Organizer you must input these settings in the Customizable Camera MCM menu as shown below or third person aiming will revert back to (broken) vanilla behavior. The rest of the settings on this MCM menu are optional.



Customizable Camera without Mod Organizer

If your only using Customizable camera you must extract "Skyrim Realistic Archery.esp" into the "\Skyrim\Data" directory. Then change the values in your "Skyrim.ini" (C:\Users\**Your username**\Documents\my games\skyrim\Skyrim.ini) to match the values below or add the lines if they are not there. Finally you must change the values in the Customizable Camera MCM menu to match the values in the screenshot above.

fVisibleNavmeshMoveDist=14000.0000

[Combat]
f1PArrowTiltUpAngle=0.35
f1PBoltTiltUpAngle=0.35
f3PArrowTiltUpAngle=1.1
f3PBoltTiltUpAngle=1.1
fMagnetismStrafeHeadingMult=0.0
fMagnetismLookingMult=0.0

No Mod Organizer or Customizable Camera

If you do not have time to set up Mod Organizer or Customizable Camera you must extract "Skyrim Realistic Archery.esp" into the "\Skyrim\Data" directory. Finally you must change the values in your "Skyrim.ini" (C:\Users\**Your username**\Documents\my games\skyrim\Skyrim.ini) to match the values below or add the lines if they are not there.

RECOMMENDED MODS



NOTES

  • The Quick Shot perk at level 70 archery will increase draw speed by %30. This moves away from SRA's intended draw speed. If you already have this perk you can try the patch under misc to disable Quick Shot
  • Archery without a crosshair in Skyrim is not recommended because the orientation of the hands/bow/knocked arrow in relation to the arrow upon release do not line up visually. This is clearly not realistic or practical. Disabling crosshair will not raise the skill ceiling, it will just create a handicap


COMPATABILITY

  • SRA is not compatible with any other ESP that changes vanilla bow/crossbow/arrow/bolt behavior under the "Projectile" or "Weapon" group.
  • SRA is compatible with any mod that changes arrow/bow meshes or textures
