[QUOTE=AnalAnnihilator;35706899]I think the worst bug is the living mannequins bug. Freaked the shit out of me the first time it happened.[/QUOTE] That's not a bug, it's a feature. [sp]I wish it actually was.[/sp] On an unrelated note, I just spent thirty minutes designing a unique character only to have the game crash upon entering the character's name. Damnit, Skyrim. Maybe this time it'll only take twenty minutes for Argonak Gro-Fist to see the light of day...
[QUOTE=AnalAnnihilator;35706899]I think the worst bug is the living mannequins bug. Freaked the shit out of me the first time it happened.[/QUOTE] And that's why I had to reinstall skyrim, folks. I freaked out and uninstalled it.
You know, I was just thinking, the draugr you fight after you learn your first shout word, how he uses the full Fus Ro Dah shout, I'm sorting thinking that he was a past dragonborn. Considering as well it says they are past nords cursed to live forever
[QUOTE=AnalAnnihilator;35706899]I think the worst bug is the living mannequins bug. Freaked the shit out of me the first time it happened.[/QUOTE] Never heard of it. Care to explain? It sounds quite interesting.
[QUOTE=AnalAnnihilator;35706899]I think the worst bug is the living mannequins bug. Freaked the shit out of me the first time it happened.[/QUOTE] Ever since I moved into a house with mannequins in it I've always been worried that they would come to life... especially when I get my character to sleep. Hasn't happened to me yet though.
Cmon Bethsada release some Skyrim DLC already. Or at least a release date.
[QUOTE=proch;35708356]Never heard of it. Care to explain? It sounds quite interesting.[/QUOTE] Mannequins are technically NPCs scripted to not move, the problem is that the script doesn't quite work correctly leading to some creepy situations. If you leave and enter your house or sleep, the mannequins will move and freeze again, sometimes even getting stuck mid-animation or being seen off their pedestal. It gets quite creepy, giving you sort of a weeping angel feeling. [editline]I like to make editlines[/editline] Now I want to modify the mannequin script to move if you do not look at them.

So what's the best lighting mod out there that doesnt make the nights and dungeons impossible to see in even with a torch
[b]Linked image in this post is a possible spoiler for the main questline, beware.[/b] Began a serious confrontation with [sp]Alduin[/sp] earlier as he [sp]resurrected Sahloknir[/sp]. I prayed to Talos, and He heard me. [url=http://puu.sh/roPy]For He sent forth from the heavens a mighty champion to lend aid to me...The Mammoth![/url] I don't think he saw [i]that[/i] coming. Come to think of it, neither did I. :v:
All things considered, Stormcloaks is rather the right way to go.
Thinking of starting a new game of Morrowind. Been three years since the last one, holy shit.
[QUOTE=proch;35709433]All things considered, Stormcloaks is rather the right way to go.[/QUOTE] Yeah if you want to make the aldmeri dominion have an easier time kicking the empire's then skyrim's ass.
[QUOTE=demoniclemon;35710332]Yeah if you want to make the aldmeri dominion have an easier time kicking the empire's then skyrim's ass.[/QUOTE] What I'm hoping is, if there's a DLC expanding the conflict (and why wouldn't there be), [sp]Ulfric is talked into allying with Hammerfell. I'm fine with this involving Ulfric's death and replacement. Anyway, the Skyrim-Hammerfell coalition could then join forces with the Empire and take the fight to Alinor. Considering the Empire technically won the last war (they killed the Thalmor's general), and the Redguards and Nords are regarded as the best warriors in Tamriel, victory wouldn't be all that far fetched[/sp]. That's the main reason I went Stormcloak. I don't buy into their whole 'oppression' thing, even though the Thalmor are making people disappear on suspicion alone.
Remember Ulfric pretty much not caring for any non-Nord, and the Reach incident shows that that applies to other humans as well. The guy doesn't act with much foresight, and his opponents have very long lifespans and can wait centuries to see things go their way. I still believe the undoing of the Thalmol is keyed in the Bosmer and Khajiits, as well as joining forces with the Argonians. Then, inner revolution at Summerset, as it is already been hinted as somewhat in progress. EDIT: AND getting the Empire to fight back for the cult of Talos.
WHY [img]http://static.skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/images/15674-1-1335087409.jpg[/img] Why is this one of the top mods? At least the one guy who complimented the clothes got rated down. Oh wait, its probably because the guy didn't read the note about the clothes. Also what the hell body replacer is that? I don't think a woman with that physique could even swing a sword.
I'm suprised there's been no mods about rimming to be fair...
Ugly
[QUOTE=RocketSnail;35704945]Great op, but you said oblivion was released for PC/xbox360/ps3 in 2002.[/QUOTE] fixed
How come when my characters eyes are not in line of sight of the sun, the entire world gets darker? I get what it's trying to do, make the shadows and shade work nicely and such, but... my character not being able to see the sun shouldn't make the entire world darkened. It's silly. The only thing between the eyes and the sun is a 4 inch post. Is there a fix for this? Shall I change my config? Is there a go-to config prior to even playing the game that might help? I.e. a page called "what to change before playing skyrim" etc.

If you stare at the sun for a bit then look back down, the world appears to brighten up a little.
Starting to play again. I'm finally doing what what I've wanted to for a long time and make characters that are wholly Imperials and wholly Stormcloak, and the playing as they would.The Imperial is a good guy and doesn't kill recklessly, while the Stormcloak will attack every Imperial he sees unless he's in a town.
Mnn, it seems like a bug though. Either I've set my graphics on minimum and forgotten or what it's trying to do isn't working as well as it worked when I first got the game. It's pretty lame. Another one is that shadows are often poor, like maybe 25 grey squares to simulate the shadow of a weapon. Idk, its odd.

Added a small mods list to the OP, more shall be added/changed later
Started a battlemage (Heavy armour, shield and destruction" character. Fucking shit up for the good of the empire.
Since so many people seem to to be restarting Morrowind I recommend that you stick this in the OP for those who want a graphical update- [url]http://morrowindoverhaul.rpgitalia.net/[/url]
[QUOTE=Cypher_09;35711977]Started a battlemage (Heavy armour, shield and destruction" character. Fucking shit up for the good of the empire.[/QUOTE] I actually started something like that, only in reverse. (Light Armor (Heavy Armor Boots and Shit) Shield and Destruction) I don't even know what to call it :V
My experience with Morrowind is null and that with Oblivion is messing around with an Argonian at a friend's quite some time ago. I'm planning on getting the latter (Numerical RPGs is something I do while doing other things; like playing Pokemon at class). Which version should I get, and things I should know after reading the differences between the 3 latter TES games at UESP?
[QUOTE=markfu;35710945]Also what the hell body replacer is that? I don't think a woman with that physique could even swing a sword.[/QUOTE] Probably UNP with really bad custom textures and animations.
