I would like to preface this by telling you. I did spend a good while trying to find if this question has been asked before, with no success. If it has, my apologies. I swear I tried to find it.
Ok, noob modder here. Originally, I wanted to make custom shrouded armor sets. One for night, one for the snow, and one for the wilderness. I first attempted to make a separate set of armors and individually change the colors, but realized the process would be quite labored because I would need to change a large number of files. More than I have the energy for hahaha.
So I adjusted my goal and just made separate files to replace the originals and I would manually change when I wanted.
At the same time I did that, I also used the creation kit to take the enchantments off of the armor.
Now when I run the game I have a problem. If I enchant the armor then I cant improve it on the smith. And if I improve it on the smith then I cannot enchant it.
I cannot tell where the issue is coming from. I am hoping someone has seen this before and can point my noob brain in the right direction to fix it.
Thank you for your help!
