I Presentation
This mod is a lot of addition for the mod named "Spears by Soolie" which is currently abandonned by his autor.
The original mod offer the possibility to play with spear (1 hand sword) and javelin (throwable) in Skyrim with different animation.
- The First addition is a multitude of new animations for spears and javelins which can be played during travel and combat.
This animations are for right-hander and cover javelins and spears: the 1 hand combat with/without shield and the 2 hands combat
are playable.
You can checked the .gif on the top of this page if you want see what are the look of some animations.
- The Second addition is a fix for the old "patcher" from Soolie which don't want founded masters, with this error message "missing masters" for some mods. Now you can patch your game correctly same if you have Realistic Needs and Diseases by perseid9, Cutting Room Floor by Arthmoor, ApachiiSkyHair on NPCs USLEEP and USKP Compatible by Cloudedtruth or any others. I've included halberds and tridents which can now run animations.
- The Third addition is an "XPMSE skeleton modified for the quiver javelin position"and allowed more liberty as keep your equipment with All geared up by MrJack and repositioned your spear with XP32 Maximum Skeleton Extended - XPMSE by Groovtama.

- The Fourth addition concern compatibility and addons, see the Recommendations part for this

Some videos by SEXX .

II Installation
U need to install Spears by Soolie (very long installation) or used the fast installation of "Spear by Soolie Repacked" from SBS - FNIS PCEA2 by Abbalovesyou.
2°) Install my mod with copy and paste in Data or with NMM,
delete the old patcher file name "Spears by Soolie" in "Data\SkyProc Patchers" and found Spears by Soolie_Redone.
3°) Launch SUM or the new patcher (Only if you have installed an other mod), If you've bug, got to the end of the page, trouble section is for
4°) Install and Launch FNIS 6.2 by Fore
, clic on"xp32's PC Exclusive Animation Path (PCEA)"and "Update FNIS Behavior".
Start a new game in the menu Skyrim
, I recommend Enhanced Camera by LogicDragon, to play 3rd person animation in 1st person view.
6°) If you want parameters of "1st Person for Javelins", download and install it with NMM when you want use javelins. If you want use a bow, install the "1st person for Return to Original". For users of Archery Gameplay Overhaul, re-install the "1st person for Return to Archery Gameplay Overhaul". This versions are done to facilitate the come back from version to an other.

III Recommendations
For the Data\SKSE\Plugins\SKSE_EnhancedCamera.ini from Enhanced Camera by LogicDragon, I recommend parameters below which are the best for myself and yourself.
; Enables experimental third person arms when in first person

If you like Archery Gameplay Overhaul by Dservant
If you want have 1st person fix for release and sound with javelins from SbS to use with  Enhanced Camera.

IV Future project
- A spell for a "Bound spear", I need a model to create the new spear.
- "Ribbons and feathers on spears" with the HDT physics.
- "True Spear Combat" mod whose the development will retake to 2018, not before.

V Resolve your trouble ( For all troubles or advices use posts. Nothing is perfect):
- You need to delete your old plugin "Spears by Soolie Patch" before to launch the patcher, because the patcher don't overwrite the old plugin.
- If you experiment bug with NPCs animations, you can use the SBS - FNIS PCEA2 by Abbalovesyou, animations run only for your avatar.
- When you load an old save, animation don't run in game. (No ideas for the moment)
- If you switch weapons to spears on horseback, you jump down from horse. (Will be fixed with FNIS)
- Stamina drop fast (Fixed).
- Spear Attack spend many stamina if you use Complete Alchemy and Cooking Overhaul by kryptopyr.
- I have a bug message like "missing masters", so you don't have run my patcher but the old patcher from Soolie.
- BOSS and FNIS aren't compatible, you need Nexus Mod Manager.
- This message give by the patcher "java.lang.NullPointException error", the cause is probably a mod, mods like Sit anywhere by tilokan1337 or FireAndIceOverhaul by Apollodown.are know to have incompatibility with SbS. U need to find what is the mod which do that.
- Nudity bug, Invisible head => U've add a new race. The Solution is below.

Qaxe's Questorium by  Qaxe Qaixaci. U need to place Spears by Soolie after Questorium, launch the patch and lauch FNIS.
Use Tes5edit.
- Go on your SpearsbySoolie Patch, Race, right clic on WoodElfRaceSpear or
other, "copy as new record into", choose SpearsbySoolie Patch.
- Rename your new copy BlueElfRaceSpear, do the same thing with WoodElfRaceVampireSpear -> BlueElfRaceVampireSpear.
- After go in your FormID list, SpearRaces, change the reference from BlueElfRaceSpear and BlueElfRaceVampireSpear by news creates.
For me, I pass from BlueElfRaceSpear "Blue Elf" [RACE:E8000D9A] to BlueElfRaceSpear "Blue Elf" [RACE:E8000D9B].

If you have specific skill with your new race, Go to your Race "BlueElf", Actor Effect, clic on "PowerBlueElfFrostCloak "Cold Vengeance" [SPEL:E6008012]" and edit it, copy it or just the ref SPEL.
Go to your new race "the false" and paste your new effect.
Do that for all effect which interest you. It's done. You can change all skills or effect that you want manually.
Other thing, To avoid to redone all if you recreate a patch, create a copy of your new Race in the Race from SpearbySoolie.esp.
