Mod changes craft in the smithy to make the list of recipes more convenient. Also books with secrets for blacksmithing have been added. Without them, recipes are not available in the blacksmith. You can craft secrets in the smelter.

In order to see the recipes in the smithy you need to have a blacksmith's perk and a secret in the inventory. And for crafting secrets in the smelter you needs are ingots, coal and paper. To see the secret recipe in the smelter, you need to have the Hammer in your inventory.

Resources for secrets are made on smelter and add to lvl list. In order to see the recipes you must have in your inventory Linen Wrap.

With each perk of blacksmithing and "Knowledge of blacksmithing", the chance of appearing to be a secret from traders will increase.
The chance of appearance secrets from merchants can be configured through the configuration menu message.

Mod add new recipes for crafting scrolls, which will need rolls of paper and magic coal. In addition, you need full soul gems and spell toms. I recommend using mods that change the scrolls. To see craft recipes in forge needed perk - Arcane Blacksmith.

In the mod there are three options:
1) Craft secret books, notes - turn off and turn on crafting secrets in the smelter.

2) "Archery not need perk" -  replaces the craft of bows and arrows with recipes without the requirement of blacksmithing perks, instead of them there is a requirement for the skill of shooting.

3) "Knowledge of blacksmithing" - gives the player knowledge from the books of secrets, which strengthens blacksmithing. To update, you need to discard the secret from the inventory and take, knowledge is added at the second reading.

4) "New enchantment and alchemy effect option (esp)" - esp option, adds new effects, as in "Blacksmithing Knowledge" in all Skyrim skills for alchemy, blacksmithing and enchantment.

5) (merge with main mod) "Arrows and bolts weight" - An additional option for immersive gameplay, arrows receive a weight equal to 0.1. Changed only playable arrows and bolts. For normal work of the script, the time for updating the current weight from the arrows is set to 3 seconds.

6) (merge with main mod, use optional plugin for set golds 0.01 weight) "Gold weighs" - An additional option for immersive gameplay, gold receive a weight equal to 0.01 and is renamed to "Septim". Added craft ingots of gold with a value of 100, 500, 1000 septims.

7) "Arrows and bolts Tweaks" - The option to change the damage, value (x2) and projectiles for arrows and bolts.
