      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

Oblivion Mod Maker Manual

 

Look what I found! I've been going through my old files as I return to playing and modding and found this little gem. The author says it can be freely distributed so I thought I'd post it here.

 

What is it?

 

It's an updated version of the Morrowind Mod Maker Manual, which is the first manual we had that explained how to make mods for The Elder Scrolls. All this information can now be found on the CS Wiki, but when the wiki was moved the last time, all the images were lost, so many of the tutorials are too hard to follow. This has some of the same tutorials, but it's written in a way that doesn't need images, or it has images in the one or two cases that needed them.

 

In addition to modding stuff, it also has a list of console commands and a section on installing and playing mods. Caution: I wouldn't count on any of the web links working. The author even spelled the address for the CS Wiki incorrectly. :lol:

 

The manual is a PDF and has a table of contents with working links to the pages in the document. It also has bookmarks with working links, so it's really easy to navigate.
