There are tons of mods that allow you to buy whatever you want from any blacksmith, but none for those of us who want to forge things ourselves. I have maxed out my blacksmithing and can make just about anything, but it gets so annoying having to visit different forges for different items. I don't want to go to the Skyforge for hero armor then go to the Dawnguard forge for fire bolts. Since all my material is in my home I would really like to be able to forge everything from there. Would it be possible for someone to make a mod that allows all weapons & armor to be crafted at all forges? I don't care if it only crafts vanilla items since I don't use any mods that add weapons & armor, but I do use modded houses & castles. I also don't want any "tweaks" or "balancing" of anything. I just want to be able to forge what I want without running all over Skyrim to do it.

 

I thought about trying to do this myself but after staring at the creation kit a while I gave up trying to figure it out. Can someone please create this mod?

If you had the nerve to open the CK, then you can do it. Become a mod creator, it's fun.

 

The secret to the special forges is in their Keywords and all of the forges are in the Furniture section.

 

The CraftingBlackSmithForgeSkyforge has an extra keyword, CraftingSmithingSkyforge, that the other forges and anvil don't have.

 

The DLC1DawnguardCraftingBlacksmithForge has the extra keyword DLC1CraftingDawnguard.

 

Just add those two keywords to CraftingBlackSmithForge, CraftingBlackSmithForgeWR, and CraftingBlackSmithAnvil (and add the Skyforge keyword to the Dawnguard forge and vice versa) and you'll be able to craft those special items anywhere.

 

And as a bonus you could also add the CraftingSmelter, CraftingTanningRack, and CraftingCookpot keywords if you wanted access to those features all at one station. Unfortunately the Armor Improvement, Weapon Improvement, Alchemy, and Enchanting features are handled by the Workbench Type in addition to the keywords.

I can do this for you if you are too intimidated.  It won't take more than a couple of minutes.  Let me know.

I tried it and got the Skyforge part to work, and can now craft those things everywhere. I can't get the Dawnguard part to work. I can't get the crossbows or special bolts to show up anywhere other than the Dawnguard Forge. If you could do that for me I'd be grateful.

Okay.  I'll go ahead and add in the skyforge with it, so you don't need two .esps.  I imagine I'll have to screw around with the quest a bit, as I think you have to be at a certain point in the Dawnguard questline to be able to forge bolts(which is probably why you were having issues).  It should be done before I go to bed tonight.

Well, it's a little harder than I thought, so I'm going to finish it tomorrow.  The easiest way to do it is to just go into each of the Skyforge weapons and armors and make them not require the Skyforge.  Unfortunately, this means that any Skyforge equipment added by mods will still require the Skyforge.  I can do it with bolts instead, but that would mean that any bolts added by mods would still have to be forged in the DG HQ.  If you see this, let me know which you prefer.  If you use mods that add bolts and/or Skyforge stuff, let me know, and I'll either patch them in or walk you through it.

It's basically a beta for now, until I get a chance to test it tomorrow.

I can't unzip the file. It says the file is unreadable. Not sure why. I use Peazip to unzip files.

 

 

I don't use mods that add any kind of weapons or armor, so that won't be a problem. If it would mean less work you can just do the bolts. Thanks again.

Download again, it sounds like your download was corrupted. The zip opens fine for me.
