This mod is directly inspired by "Ars Metallica" by Arthmoor and "Smithing Enhanced" by SinisterDeath.
I really enjoyed both mods, but neither was comprehensive enough for me. My goal was to take the best ideas of both mods and create something I hope you will like.
I have taken most of the armor, weapons, and clutter in the game and allowed you to smelt them down into their base components, returning the most valuable metals to you in ingot form. Pots and Jugs can be melted down into clay to help build your Hearthfire home, Empty Wine bottles can be melted into glass, and so on. I have tried to make everything as sensible as possible.
I've also made some items that I felt you should have been able to craft from the start available to be forged or created at the Tanning Rack.
- Fur Armor (all varieties)
- Long & Hunting Bows
- Arm Wrappings (to finish that ragged beggar look you've always wanted)
- Silver Swords and Greatswords (it made no sense that you could craft weapons out of any other material except silver)
- Scimitars and more!
I've also created "Pewter Ingots" whuch can be smelted out of tableware and tankards. They can be used to create cheap jewelry and sold or used.
This is my first mod, and any suggestions or positive, useful feedback would be wonderful.
