There's a ton of Arrow-Crafting mods, there's one on the front page of the Steam Workshop.

I only really use restore health potions from time to time, stamina now and then, and blacksmith and enchanter elixirs. For weapons, I tend to just stick with half a dozen daedric weapons I've strengthened and enchanted, and mostly I use my daedric sword of burning in one hand, and a staff of frost atronach in the other for distracting tougher enemies. But I still collect every single weapon or piece of armour I find if it's over the value of 600 gold and give it to my mule, lydia. She must be carrying over 2000 weight in items at the moment. Most of those are to sell and I don't need the gold now, but I can't help collecting them anyway. And even if I picked up a weapon or item that could be quite handy in certain combat situations, I soon forget that lydia even has them tongue.gif

Crazy, how does she carry that much? I find my companion can only carry about 400 or so. Also guilty of collecting stuff, have a chest in my home that lags when opening or depositing into it, tons of rare armors/weapons lol

Then just about every other chest in Breezehome has tons of stuff, 1 for potions, 1 for scrolls, 1 for ingredients, bookshelf broke so theres 100+ books on the floor by it (next to that open fireplace lool) I still collect ingredients as I find them, but mostly only keeping ebony/glass or better stuff now.

My first character was such a packrat that I was encumbered almost constantly, even with 250 stamina. I got so used to being encumbered all of the time that I essentially traveled by power attacking with a greatsword while walking forward and using wind-sprint (short cooldown mode) whenever my stamina wore out. Combining that with master level difficulty made combat with mages very challenging, to say the least. I think my record encumbrance was 2,500+ lbs. By all rights, my character should have been crushed. (This was with the weightless armor perk.)

When I made a second character, a mage, I vowed to only pick up high-value magical items, magical items I could disenchant, or useful potions, lockpicks, and gold. I've never been encumbered, even when looting 2 dragon kills worth of scales and bones.

Nice, the Dark brotherhood seems to be a good way to make cash if someone didn't want to barter tons of loot.

There is another way than what you described, similarly effective.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Give your follower a bow and 1 daedric arrow, followers have unlimited arrows, so all the ones that they shoot you can collect off the bodies or if they missed. I suppose your follower needs to actually use the bow sometimes, mine happens to favor it for distance at least. I think I collected about 200 ebony arrows so far from my follower shooting at stuff. biggrin.gif Need to upgrade her to daedric arrows actually, I just found some

Nothing important really but couldn't help mentioning, the BAFTA Awards are live on UK tv at the moment, and Esbern is on (introducing Martin Scorsese). biggrin.gif

That rocks! It will take a little getting used to, but I think it's highly functional. I think the console code might be easier, but the BoH will add some ease for sorting. Thanks Noob!


On another note, has anyone ever seen this glitch? It's a little hard to see, but it's either raining or snowing, but only in fits and spurts. It only happened that once, so far, but I thought it was weird enough to video.

Skewed - That one mod might have an element in it that will go down as my favorite weapon of all time!

Alas, when I try to download it, I get a file does not exist error in NMM. You can download it manually, though.
