1. ================== ACE Archery ==================

1.1 ----------------- Full List of Changes ---------

- All Bows and Arrows are split into 2 Types, Long and Light.
- Arrows are further split into Worn or regular, both of which can be bought from
shops or looted.
- 10 Worn arrows can be converted to 5 regular at the tanning rack.
- Regular arrows are also craftable (with the right material perk).
- When the Bow and Arrow types match there is a bonus. (i.e. light bow & light
arrow)
- When the Types mismatch there is a penalty. (i.e. long bow & light arrow)
- When both the Type and Material match, Light get critical damage and Long ignore
more armor.
- The Bound bows come with matching light/long arrows. Bound bow damage now scale
to both archery and conjuration skill lvl
- The Bound Long Bow spell book is in the College of Winterhold courtyard and in
shops.
- The bound light bow spell is cast silently and 2x faster than the bound long bow
spell.

---- About Long Bows and Arrows ----


- Heavy, high damage, fire loudly and slowly, ignore armor.
- Zoom 30% more than light bows while crouching, great for sniping
- Higher arrow speed with more range.

Long: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/images/10037-1-1333718605.jpg
- Sneaking penalty while equipped.
- Because base damage is so high, sneak attack multiplier is 1.5x, or 2.25x with
Deadly Aim.
- Long Bows get a bonus to added critical damage equal to 25% of the Archery skill
level

---- About Light Bows and Arrows ----


- Lower damage, fire fast and silently, strong criticals, and great sneak attacks.
- Light bows benefit much more from the Steady Hand's slow time effect.
- 4x sneak attack bonus, 6x with deadly aim.
- Added critical damage is great for light bows.
- About 2x attack speed of long bows.
- Light Bows get a bonus to added critical damage equal to 50% of the Archery
skill level

---- Archery Perk changes ----

Light bows do 20% more damage and 30% chance of 10 seconds bleeding.
Long bows do 35% more damage and 20% chance of 20 seconds bleeding.
~ Eagle Eye (2lvls) - lvl2 has more zoom and 50% stamina reduction
Eagle Eye affects Long Bows much more (while crouching), and Steady Hand affects
light bows much more.
~ Ranger - now includes the Hunter's Discipline effect
~ Long Bow Training - long bows +30% damage and ignore 25% armor
~ Power Shot (2lvls) - lvl2 long bows stagger all but largest enemies on every hit

parts of the mod:

- modifies the Archery tree (in any way, even small things)
- modifies vanilla bows or arrows (in any way)
*note: if this mod is loaded after another mod which modifies these things,
it will work perfectly*
This mod will be compatible with any mod that:
- adds new bows or arrows (they will be considered Long, not Light)

If another mod modifies vanilla arrows, the "worn" arrows will all disappear.
If you prefer the effects of the other mod, make sure the other mod loads
after ACE Archery.

If I haven't created a patch for the mod you want, yo make the bow a light
bow you can:
- ask me to make a patch for it, or
- Open the CK, find the bow, add the keyword "JobFletcher" to the bow. That's
it!
(you may also want to make it's speed 0.6 and match it's damage to the ones
in my pic that shows all the stats )
light arrows need the keyword "TraitGreedy"
long arrows need the keyword "TraintPowerhungry"
long bows need no keyword

This mod will not be compatible with any mod that:


- alters the one/two-handed skill trees
- increases weapon attack speeds (the stacking effect will be absurdly fast)

Weapon Speed:
ACE Melee fixes the vanilla Skyrim base weapon speed bug. Unfortunately if
another mod also does this same thing, they will double-fix and then break again.
To disable the ACE Melee weapon speed fix, open the consile (~) and type
this:
set WeaponSpeedBaseFix to 0
And things should go back to normal, make sure to set it back to 1 if you
remove the other mod!

- The Dance of Death - Fully compatible, with perks or no-perks version,


check the perk codes above to see what the new requirements are
- Duel - Combat Realism - 99% compatible, load ACE after Duel, the only Duel
function that wont work is the part where you do less damage when your stamina is
below 10%

perks.

longer necessary if you use my mod.

Compatible. Furthermore, my mod removes SPO as a prerequisite to CCO.
My mod must load after CCO.

The weaponsmith and armorsmith perks are new though. You will have to add them. You
can use the console command to replace missing perks with the new perks or to shift
perk points around.
* I strongly recommend making a new set of armor after installing this mod!

10. ================== ACE BYOG ==================


(BYOG = Balance Your Own Game)

10.1 ----------------- Full List of Changes ---------

This module, like all other ACE modules, is completely standalone and doesn't
require anything to use it.

Finally you can match different mods together and fine tune your game with BYOG!
BYOG is a collection of settings which will alter specific aspects of the game.
I made BYOG because even though ACE is well balanced with itself,
it doesn't exist in a vacuum and when used with other mods some aspects may need
slight balancing.
BYOG doesn't require ACE, it works as a standalone.

Check the "Powers" menu in game to find the BYOG Control Panel. This is the
breakdown of the menu

[Main Menu]
* [Weapons] *
-> Bows / One-Handed / Two-Handed
-> * [Fine Tuning]
-> -> Light Bows / Long Bows / Daggers / Swords / Waraxes / Maces / Greatswords /
Battle Axes / Warhammers
-> -> (*note* "light bows" has no effect if ACE Archery is not installed, and "long
bows" affects all bows if ACE Archery is not installed)
* [Armor] *
-> Heavy Armor / Light Armor
-> Vital Torso: -50% non-torso & +100% torso, on or off

Notes:
- When you finish setting everything the way you like, go to Options and lock the
settings,
that way you wont be tempted to alter them in a difficult fight or whatever,
it makes them feel more like permanent game settings.
if you add another mod later and need to rebalance with BYOG again then
uninstall the BYOG through the Control Panel and after you get everything
sorted out on the other new mod, reinstall BYOG and tweak.
- BYOG is perfectly compatible with any mod, no modifications to any items
- EXP Speed alters how much the bar moves on the skills each time you perform some
skill-action,
as a result, it will take more skill-actions to level a skill to the next level.
it does not alter how many skill level-ups are required to gain the next player
level.

10.2 ----------------- Compatibility ---------

There is no reason BYOG should be incompatible with any other mod!

10.3 ----------------- Uninstall Info ---------

Click the Uninstall menu option in the Control Panel and follow the
instructions it gives.

* Version 10
This mod no longer touches vanilla arrows. From v10 it is fully compatible with
arrow-mods.
All former long & light arrows have been added in addition to vanilla arrows.
The arrows can be forged according the note notes in v9 and blacksmiths sell them
in short supply.
The speed and arc of long & light arrows improve as the materials progress.
The impact force of long arrows increases, and that of light arrows decreases with
progression.
Vanilla arrows behave the same as in vanilla Skyrim and are compatible with either
bow type.
Matching the bow and arrow type gives a 10% damage bonus, seen in Active Effects.
Matching a light bow&arrow of same material gives extra critical damage.
Matching a long bow&arrow of same material lets shots ignore 10% more armor.
Active Effect entries show the status of matches or mismatches on types.
long bow weight reduced, more friendly to inventory, still heavier than light bows
bow damage reduced from earlier versions to compensate for increased (vanilla)
arrow damage
Bound Long Bows are given a new texture, looks less fragile than Bound Light Bow
Added one special arrow to the forge, the Shatter Glass Arrow
Shatter Glass Arrow - The tip of this arrow shatters with great force causing
internal bleeding for a very long time.
The shatter glass arrow has a 50% fail chance against heavy armor
