[QUOTE=MoarToast;34505723]Except this is a game. I don't want to read a book when I'm playing a game, I want to make the decisions myself and experience the action myself, not have it described to me (No matter how well). What's the point of putting more effort into writing what is essentially just fluff to most people instead of the actual parts people will experience? Even if you're somewhat bound by the restrictions of animation, you can still pull the old "Just use your imagination" card, it can still work if you pull it off right.[/QUOTE] I'd much rather have information passed to me through other sources then just having some random NPC who, I dunno, gives me the entire history of Dwemer culture or something. The books fulfill the vital role of establishing the history of Tamriel through historians, and since historians write books, it all balances out. I mean, if you can't take two minutes to read Dwarves V. 4 but you can spend three hours making iron daggers, then it's your fault that the story feels incomplete. If this was an FPS, or an RTS or even Fallout 3 I'd be fine with all exposition being provided by NPCs, but this is a game where the culture lives in what seem to be an endless Dark Age. Intelligence and knowledge is not widespread. Scholars and historians write shit in books to educate the few that can read. Those books detail the events of the past. [i][b]Buuuuuuut[/b][/i] you're right. It should not all be about reading pretend books that are only three pages long. Especially in Skyrim, where the Nords all live on oral tradition. It should be a much more even balance, maybe still somewhat skewed in favor of books, to gather story and knowledge. Also, I wish Skyrim had more of a Scots influence. Too much viking for my liking. Ba-dum-tish.

[QUOTE=MoarToast;34504953]From what they've said, it's integrated with Steam and the Skyrim launcher, so you need to subscribe to the mod first (As it doesn't look like you can download it manually at all) and then go to the Skyrim launcher, which will then autoinstall the mod you subscribed to.[/QUOTE] This will be complete and utter nightmare for mods that have optional ESP files, as well as require a specific load order. I like the idea of auto-updating mods, but certain types of mods like texture replacers or mods that change similar things to other mods I'd never want an auto-update, because they need to be installed in a very specific order (i.e. I'm using a landscape texture mod and an ice texture mod, and want the ice texture to install over the landscape one). Other mods would require certain things to be compatable if they were updated too. I.E. using PISE with Weapons of the Third Era. If you want to use both, you have to use the compatable version. If WotE were suddenly updated, it would break PISE completely untill PISE gets updated too. This would be a case where I wouldn't want WotE updated at all, untill PISE has a compatability patch put in.
really, there should be the ability to download any version of the mod that has been uploaded, and the option to subscribe to it
[QUOTE=MoarToast;34505723]Except this is a game. As close-minded and spergy as this will probably make me sound, I don't want to read a book when I'm playing a game, I want to make the decisions myself and experience the action myself, not have it described to me (No matter how well). What's the point of putting more effort into writing what is essentially just fluff to most people instead of the actual parts people will experience?

Nobody is forcing you to read anything, and the game doesn't really rely on books for its story, they are there for backstory and interest. Many locations, events, and NPC's are directly related to lore and backstory though. If you want to know more about certain things, you have books there, or if you just want general knowledge to read there are books too. I personally enjoy reading them. You're pretty much complaining that you love the taste of cake but don't feel like going out and making one, and then complain that you don't have a cake served to you on a silver platter. I'm not sure why you are complaining when you are pretty much experiencing the "lore" of the land as-is just by playing. The only downside is that Bethesda are better world makers than they are quest designers or quest writers. They constantly adapt their lore in the game in various ways, its just much of the time either poorly paced, badly explained or could be better implemented.

I decided to screw around with setrace for shits and giggles. First I turned myself into a Draugr.

Make everyone you encounter a Draugr and return Skyrim to the ancient Nords.
I wonder if I can turn a dragon into a Draugr.
is lydia used for anything important i wanted to use her for that boethiah thing

[QUOTE=Ermac20;34506310]is lydia used for anything important i wanted to use her for that boethiah thing[/QUOTE] She's my pack mule, holds all those extra dragon bones and scales I can't carry so no, not really
[QUOTE=Ermac20;34506310]is lydia used for anything important i wanted to use her for that boethiah thing[/QUOTE] I wouldn't kill her. If she dies there is a chance she can crash your future wedding.

[QUOTE=The golden;34506353]I wouldn't kill her. If she dies there is a chance she can crash your future wedding.[/QUOTE] Seriously? sounds like she comes back to haunt you, damn... maybe I shouldn't have beat her to death and left her corpse in that dwemer ruin...
I just found a Daedric sword named "Endrigorn" enchanted with a low-end soultrap. Sounds like a quest item of some sort, though I have no idea what for. Anybody got ideas?

It has nothing to do with lore, just the quality of the writing.

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWAsb6ftA-Y[/media] I suck at this game. :c
Has anyone else been getting a random blurred screen during combat since the 1.4.21 update? I thought it might be a mod but I removed everything and it definitely isn't.
Anyone know of a suitable replacement for Skyrim Uncapper now that the creator isn't supporting it anymore?
[QUOTE=Ermac20;34506310]is lydia used for anything important i wanted to use her for that boethiah thing[/QUOTE] well shes pretty good at blocking doors
It looks like with the steam workshop that mostly pirates will stay at nexus, that's why I think that skyrim nexus should be shut down, so that the most of the mods on skyrim would be only available on the workshop, which means that pirates would be left out and might even be motivated to buy the game.
I think the Workshop is a terrible Idea. Especially when you read the types of crap they make you agree to in the EULA for it...
