Skyrim Special Edition

About this mod

This is a combined .esl flagged plug in of 14 different bows that I have made for Skyrim. Optional file is a non-plug in replacer for nearly all Vanilla bows in game with higher poly models, more realistic shapes, and higher resolution textures.

Changelogs
Two files are included in this download.

The first is Bowgasm which combines 14 different unique item single release bow mods i have made, and released individually.
Flagged as .esl
The second is a AIO non-plug in model, and texture replacer for nearly every bow in game
Use both together or either by themselves.
Details below>>>

Important notes:

Some of the textures for replacers are in the same folders as some of the unique items so alright to let them overwrite if used together.
This was done to help save space, and reduce redundancy of having two copies of the same texture.

If updating from a single release of a unique bow to this combined .esp you will lose that item from your inventory unless you leave the single release plug in active.
If left active it will double the item in game and in the crafting menu.

Uploading an optional file for Nicoroshi Creations 1.7 that does NOT contain Rivendell, Tauriel, or Lothlorien Bows so that people using both mods will not have duplicate items in game or in the crafting menu.

Again be aware that those items if in your inventory will be lost, and need to be re-acquired either where the item was first found or by crafting.

My good friend PhatBassAnchor without whom this mod probably would never have been made for feedback, history, details on bow constrution, play testing, names, and ideas.
Thank you brother :)

Both my doggos Harley, and Angel who allowed me to take pictures of their fur to use as textures on  the bows.
Good Doggos :)

Final thoughts:

This has been a long and fun journey spanning more than a month of work in creation.

I have been successful in changing the face of archery for my game as I had intended, and very happy with the final result.

I hope you enjoy it also.
