About this mod

Improves and changes damage, statistics and effects of all bolts and crossbows in the game making them a far more viable option in battle. Compatible with patch 1.08.2

Permissions and credits

The Ranged Combat Overhaul has been inspired by the Improved Bolts mod and hopes to extend this idea into a full ranged combat overhaul that will make the crossbow a much more viable alternative in combat. What I'm going for with this mod is to give each ammunition type a distinct use case, extend customisability of bows and broaden the range of damage types and effects available. For a full list of changes by version have a look at the changelog and please leave any comments, suggestions, bugs etc in the comments section. They're always welcome. Compatible with 1.12.1 and NG+
