Is anyone else tired of going to the forge to try out that new weapon/armor mod you just found and have to scroll for a solid minute because it is at the very end of a very long list? I am so I made this mod. It adds a book requirement for any of the armor from the Immersive Armor Pack to show up in the forge therefore hiding a ton of gear from being displayed until you want to see it.
A. Drag and drop into your Immersive Armor Pack folder and overwrite the current esp
A. Because I have a crap ton of armor/weapon mods installed and my forge list is absurdly long, I want to go to the forge and only see what I want to craft at that moment. If you have the crafting book it appears in the forge, if you don’t it doesn’t, easy enough for me.
Q. Does this change any crafting recipes?
A. If the original requires a perk, certain level, etc it is still required. This only adds a book requirement for it to appear in forge and a +/- item to further organize armor sets in the forge..
Q. Where do I find the book?
A. Belethor has it, I debated on putting it in the giant’s chest for laughs but decided against it.
A. Belethor’s shop is the only worldspace issue, any mods that alter the recipes will conflict, refer to the below question for solutions.
Q. Gear+ and Gear- appears in the forge, whats up with that?
A. Forge Menu Overhaul – this amazing idea was what I used originally in an attempt to shorten my forge list but I never got it working quite how I wanted so I learned how it did it and replicated it for myself, the book idea actually came after from a number of DeserterX‘s mods when I realized I still had a massive list.
Q. I’ve downloaded a few of these now and I’m only seeing the book for one mod at Belathor’s shop!
A. Thank mod overwriting for that one, remember how a number of mods say put me last in the load order because of overwrites? Same issue. There are a few options
-console – search “crafting” for all the books
Q. Why don’t you include a script or put the book somewhere else?
A. I can read and modify certain parts of esp in the creation kit but I suck balls at coding so scripts are out and the only other option I can see is to dump the book somewhere in the world and hope some other mods doesn’t edit that worldspace so back to the same issue. Also by putting it in Belathor’s shop if you accidentally sell/lose the crafting book you can go buy another one without have to use the console if you value immersion.
Q. You said this is a series, where are the rest?
A. Do a nexus file search for the term “booked” or checked out my Skyrim Smithing Booked for a master list, I am slowly adding these for gear as I have time.
