About this mod

This mod changes the meshes of bows and adds an optional Supple Ebony Bow.

Also available for XBox One.

Inspired by LeanWolf's Better-Shaped Weapons SE I decided to create a mod for bows.  The intent is to fix some of the bows that are blocking too much of the target when in first person view or to change the aesthetics of bows that have too unrealistic and disproportionate appearance.  Besides the optional Supple Ebony Bow, this mod only contains meshes, so it is compatible with other bow texture mods.  Texture mods for the regular bows will not change the textures of the Supple Ebony Bow.  The following is a list of the new bow meshes with a short description of the changes.

Auriel's Bow - main portion thinner
Nordic Bow - most pieces are thinner, with handle slightly longer
Ancient Nord Bow, Nord Hero Bow, Drainspell Bow - thinner with smaller protrusions around the handle
Ebony Bow - thinner
Falmer Bow - thinner
Forsworn Bow - thinner bowstring only
Nightingale Bow - main portion thinner, the protrusions around the handle bended to follow the shape of the wood
Elven Bow - main portion thinner
Glass Bow - thinner
Golden Saint Bow (Saints & Seducers, AE update) - main portion thinner
Madness Bow (Saints & Seducers, AE update) - thinner
Supple Ebony Bow (optional) - modified meshes and textures of CrazyLion's Ebony Bow

Supple Ebony Bow has the same weight as the regular Ebony Bow, but it shares the damage and draw speed with Supple Ancient Nord Bow (Weight: 16, Damage: 14, Draw speed 0.875).

The .esp file of the optional Supple Ebony Bow has been flagged as an ESL mod.  ESL mods do not count towards the 255 mod limit.

Four load screens have been changed with the new bow meshes.

The FOMod installation includes patches for the following mods:
ENB Light
Frankly HD Nightingale Armor and Weapons
HD Falmer Armor - Weapons - Huts - Everything - Glow

I wish to express my thanks to LeanWolf for his suggestions and inspiration and CrazyLion (CL's Weapon-replacer's) for the permission to use his files.
