About this mod

Locational Damage for SKSE VR! Do extra damage depending on which body part you hit with your arrows or spells.

Permissions and credits
Locational Damage SKSE port for VR/SE. Original mod for Skyrim LE: Locational Damage by Felisky.

I wanted to port this mod since I think the game should be more skill based, and there was no good mod for adding extra damages on headshots etc. This definitely works best with increased difficulty through the game options or other mods that make NPCs much stronger!

NOTE:  I currently recommend using Immersive Sounds with the "Instant Impacts" option together with this mod for the best headshot SFX.

-Small code optimizations

As of latest V0.3 BETA Update:
This is a BETA release, not all features are working and there may be stability or compatibility issues. However, It has been tested and confirmed working with major VR mods such as VRIK, MageVR & VRCustomQuickslots.
You should now get correct spell bonus damage, but I recommend not using 2 destruction spells at the same time.
Dragon headshots are now fixed.
SE version released, supports SE v1.5.73 and v1.5.80 (I recommend not using it with Ultimate Combat though)

-Different damage multipliers for head, body(heart), legs, arms. Configurable in the INI
-Works with both arrows and spell projectiles (unlike the original mod which only worked with arrows)
-Armor type on each bodypart will effect the damage multiplier (for arrows but not spells)
-Configurable notification when locational damage registers
-Supports all the same NPC types as the original mod, which is most NPCs.
-Spell damage should be correct most of the time.  
-Spell damage is independently configurable with special INI setting "SpellDamageMultiplier" (default 1.0)
-Impact VFX
-Destruction perks add bonus damage
-Compatible with spellsiphon, all spellsiphon multipliers will add bonus damage as well

What doesn't work yet:
-On hit effects such as disarm or stagger
-Spell damage may be incorrect with 2 different destruction spells in each hand or if you frequently swap spells in mid combat. 

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I disable the constant notifications?
A: Set DisplayNotification=false in the INI file

Q: Does it support VRIK?
A: Yes

Q: Will this support melee damage?
A: No, it is specifically projectiles only.  

Q: When will this be ported to SE?
A: It is out now.  

Hopefully in the future will have improved compatbility, add more NPC types, add Skyrim SE support, add missing features etc.
