      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!

    Cat Show Tails

    As I’m sure many of you know by now, I breed pedigree cats. Our purpose is to maintain and promote the breed. Part of that process is to enter our little darlings in cat shows where they can be judged and hopefully win awards. The big difference between dog and cat shows is that with cat shows, we can’t run around a ring with our cats on leads. I wish we could! There are several cat breeds that will happily walk on a leash. In fact, it’s pretty much a requirement for Bengals and Savannas, which need a lot of exercise and stimulation. However the one thing I think all cat breeds have in common is their independence. They’ll walk on a leash, but where they want to go, not where you want them to go. So while it would be very entertaining, it would be chaos to have a bunch of cats walking around on leads. They would also fight. We’ve had two shows within a month which gave me the opportunity to show all my cats. The first show was in Niagara Falls as part of the Pet Expo. It was two days, running on a weekend. The second show was in Belleville and was only a one day show since it coincided with the awards banquet, which took place on Saturday. Now I’ll use the pictures we took from the shows to explain the structure, what the judges are looking for and show you the expressions on my cats’ faces as they tolerated the judging process. First, let's start with the Pet Expo floor in Niagara Falls: From that view, the cat show area was in the top right. The next picture is the cat show area. This show had four rings, or judging areas. All the participants are in show cages, or kennels on tables. Some shows will provide cages, but they aren't very good, so it's best to buy your own. We prefer the soft-side collapsible kennels, like the burgundy one at the front in the picture below. Show Mechanics To show your cat, they must be registered with the organization running the show. In this case, that's the Canadian Cat Association (CCA). Even household pets can be registered and shown and we regularly get quite a few people doing that. Then you fill out the entry form for the show. Once your entry is confirmed, you are assigned a number for each cat (or kitten). When you arrive at the show, you're given a catalogue that lists all the registrants and the show schedule. You look for the category for your cats so you know where you need to go and listen to the announcements for when your cats are called to the ring. Each cage in the ring will have a number on top and you place your cat in the appropriate cage. Judging Pedigree cats are judged based on their conformity to the breed standard. Each breed has a published standard and one of the really interesting tasks as a breeder is trying to judge how well your six week old kitten adheres to the standard. They change a lot and all breeders will tell you about the stories when they sold a champion. You just hope that when you do, at least you sold him or her with breeding rights and not as a pet! If you think you have a high quality champion, you want to keep that animal in your cattery and have them as part of your breeding program. In addition to the standard, cats are also judging on grooming and personality. Cat shows are beauty pageants and some cats just don't perform well in shows. My queen, Ada, is a perfect example. She hates shows and doesn't perform well. She is also small, so some judges may feel that she doesn't conform to the standard. The breed standard for British Shorthairs doesn't say anything about overall size, just that everything should be in proportion and they should have a cobby body. Cats are judged by multiple judges because each judge has different things that they consider important. Champion Status This only applies to pedigree cats. Once your cat has been judged by four judges and has not been disqualified by any of the four, you cat attains his Champion status. After that, he needs to beat out other Champions to gain points towards his Grand Champion status. Once he's attained that, he needs to beat other Grand Champions to earn his Double Grand Champion. After that, it's Master Grand Champion and then finally Supreme Master Grand Champion. You need to attend a lot of shows for several years to attain the higher ranks. Now let's get back to pictures! Once our numbers were called, Jimi and I took our cats to the ring and put them in their judging cages. Male cats are always separated by female cats or empty cages to prevent fights. Then the judge takes each cat of the cage and brings her to the judging table. Here's Curie being judged: Sharon is checking the proportion of Curie's ears and head. Curie's cage is number 22 in the background. Kyra was number 23, Kyan was 24 and Pascal was 25. It was Kyra and Kyan who did the best at the Niagara Falls show. Here are some pictures of Kyra being judged: The judges liked Kyra's rare colour and the quality of her coat. She also has a nice round face. As you can see, Kyan just wishes this was over. One of the judges checked Kyan's testicles (to make sure they've dropped) and so after that, he tucked his tail between his legs when each judge picked him up. One judge laughed and said "You'll get the hang of this". The judge checked him because technically, he's still a kitten. They don't do that with adults because if there was a problem, they couldn't breed. Anyway Kyan did very well. He has a nice plush coat that's very soft as well. His face needs to fill out more and if it doesn't, we'll get him neutered and keep him as a pet. Finally here are some pictures of Pascal. Pascal is an interesting case because his body is very good for a British Shorthair, but his markings aren't true. He's listed as a Silver Ticked Tabby, but he has some spots. Not enough spots to be called a Silver Spotted Tabby however. So he won't do well with any judge that knows their colours and markings, but not all judges do. He was ranked highest by one judge who felt body structure was the most important factor. Once the judges have seen all the cats for each breed, they start awarding ribbons. Here is Curie, Kyra and Kyan with the ribbons on their cages: They all get the red and green ribbons because they were the only British Shorthair cats in the show this time around and they all had different colours. The judge in this case awarded Kyan with best of breed and Kyra got second best of breed. None of that means points however. The really important part is when each judge picks their favourites among all shorthair cats and among all breeds. All breed means all cats, no matter their breed. Overall Standings Here are the awards my cats won at the Niagara Falls show: Curie - 7th best All Breed Kyra - 10th best Shorthair, 8th best All Breed, 9th best All Breed Kyan - 8th best All Breed, 5th best All Breed, 9th best All Breed, 10th best All Breed, 8th best Shorthair Pascal - 7th best All Breed There were eight judges in total and every single judge chose at least one of my cats in their finals rings. Here are some pictures showing the plaques they won on their kennel ribbons: That's Pascal and Kyan sharing a kennel and the picture below has Curie and Kyra sharing the other kennel. That concludes the Niagara Falls cat show. Thanks for reading! If you got this far, you deserve a medal.

    There's definitely GOG support for OBSE. You just have to download its own particular "latest" loader. It works great. Oblivion from GOG has no DRM, no overlays, it's already LAA so you don't have to use the 4gb patcher, it includes all DLC, and you can get it for $10 if it's on sale. It's a no-brainer for people who don't own Oblivion yet, and even for people that do I still suggest it highly.

    Older Brits are like that. They just love the attention and will purr away. One time when I took one of my old Brits, Britannia, to the vet, she was purring while the vet was trying to listen to her heart. The vet had to put a dab of alcohol on her nose to make her stop purring. Just a minute ago, I heard the fans in my computer really ramp up and I was wondering what was making them run so hard. One of the kittens was sleeping on the radiator!!!

    Oblivion - Steam version

    You have to use CBash to build your bashed patch when you use Arthmoor's DLC Delayers. It's a filter mod, so it has to be merged into the bashed patch and only CBash can do that. The python version (of the bashed patch) can't. I'm only using a couple of the DLC's and it works fine.

    The FOMO World Map is a map built for use with theNiceOne's Dynamic Map (Obviously it can be used alone as well but why would you not want the features of Dynamic Map?). The project is simply the product of my own desire to see the vast scope of the world within my modded Oblivion whenever I wanted to by scrolling about the map, the feeling of knowing that there is a vast vast world all around you for your characters to explore is simply one that I find all too enchanting. The map depicts the various province mods of Tamriel most of which are in the Tamriel worldspace but also Hammerfell: TEG, Silgrad Tower, and MorroBlivion which are not in the Tamriel worldspace, as well as various other island/continent province mods like Windfall, Dibella's Watch, Nascosto Isles and as you can clearly see Ubanga which are all NOT in the Tamriel worldspace but simply show up on the map to perfect scale and placed where they would be in the headcanon lore of my own modded Oblivion's world (Which is obviously based on the lore provided in those mods themselves and based on the geography and culture of the people in the mods. If someone wants to argue that one of these island provinces should be in another location I would be more than happy to hear your position on it's position ^^). Without further ado, The Current Version (Well almost current) of [WIP] FOMO World Map: Link to full resolution version on DeviantArt: Its HUGE!! If your interested in teasers and getting hype why not check out some of the other nice progress screenshot over on my DeviantArt profile while your over there: Sifonseal As the title of this thread states this is still a WIP, it has been a WIP for many many months now slowly improving and expanding over that time slowly, much of it is subject to change, the prime example being when Envy releases Elsweyr Pellitine I will likely switch from TWMP Valenwood Improved to TWMP Valenwood-Elsweyr to be able to play Elsweyr Pellitine and as such the map will also drastically change. I also very much look forward to adding TAL's own Black Marsh and Titov's Hammerfell to this ever growing map ^^. However I will likely release full resolution copy of the map in dds format with the required ini file for Dynamic Map and installation instructions for all the nice folk here at TAL that are interested in giving the map a try. Obviously you are welcome to (And I encourage it) download the linked map, dds it and workout the specific of the ini if you want to mess around with it right now, if you do decide to do this feel free to ask about the specific of the ini file ^^. Also if someone wants a lighter version of the map, here is the last upload before the Ubanga expansion: Mapy Map Furthermore, for those who don't already know every city and road you see on that map exists in my modded Oblivion (Sadly though some of those cities (e.g. those in Valenwood) are just shells), regardless I like to look at this map and see a testament to the vastness of a heavily modded Oblivion! The reason or this WIP release thread currently is just to get whatever feedback anyone might have on the map, as well as an idea for what else might need to be included on it in the future, many of the minor details like the detailing of the roads and the shadowing of place names have not been added as they would need to be recreated with each iteration, so the actual release versions of the map will look more detailed than these WIP versions, though the current WIP versions are adequately pleasing to the eye from where I stand, though that might be due to a smidge of bias from spending so much time making it ^^".

    Craftybits 0.812 Bug Reports

    The model's hatch window is translucent in-game, but only enough for movement of the steam and fire effect from the Fire Salts to be vaguely discernable through it. It's dark enough inside that no one could identify whether or not there's food. It's easy to just delete the AlphaProperty node in NifSkope to get rid of that, though. I could make it so it could be opened, I think...probably. I've never worked with making hinge animations. Certainly not during the busy season with my job, unfortunately...and even then, Oblivion's collision is too wonky to put food on the grate inside without weird bouncing.

    This is my busy season at work, so I sadly haven’t made much progress on this project. I’ve removed/fixed some floating objects, and I have the dialogue / diary entries for about 5 quests prepared...but implementing the quests’ scripts and making them actually work in-game isn’t my strong suit, especially when my time is limited. I end up going down rabbit holes trying to make everything perfect and it just doesn’t get done. Ideally I could get some help, but I think most people interested in that sort of thing are already busy with a project. Next update will have more floating stuff fixes, and hopefully all least a couple small quests.

    [RELz] Oblivion XP

    New version uploaded. Lots of major bug fixes in this release, including support for 4K monitors and Northern UI. Uninstall the previous version, anneal the BAIN package for your UI and then install the new version. Do NOT use your Oblivion XP ini file from the previous version. Back up your current ini file before uninstalling and then transfer your changes to the new ini file after installing the new version. If you don't use BAIN then you may need to reinstall your UI after uninstalling Oblivion XP to restore the original files. Change Log 4.4.5 fixed prompt to initialize Oblivion XP after first level-up bug fixed bug in point award for reading scrolls deleted generic_background75.xml. No longer used. cleaned up menus. Parameterized more elements, removed duplicate definitions. Fixed text wrap length so the menu works with other languages. changed colour of skill cost text to make it easier to see. fixed level-up menu for high resolution monitors (1440p and above). enhanced Shivering Isles location discovery. Previously it only gave a static number of points. Now you'll get a varying number of points based on distance to nearest city. added option to hide HUD message log completely. See messageLogVisible variable in ini file. If you hide the message log, you should turn off the XP gained chime too (messageSoundXP). Replace your Oblivion XP ini file with the one from this package. Back up your ini before installing the new package so you can copy your changes over. DO NOT use the old ini file. made Oblivion XP compatible with Northern UI thanks to DavidJCobb. added NMM installation script created by Haikem. Thanks Haikem! updated installation scripts for new package structure.

    Canadian woman wins Nobel Prize for Physics. Women rock! As a graduate student, Donna figured out how to make lasers more powerful. Previously, a powerful laser would destroy the equipment used to generate it. Donna lengthened the laser beam, which made it dimmer and then increased the strength of the lengthened beam. She then compressed the beam back again, making for a more powerful laser that’s now used in laser eye surgery and tumour treatments. Talk about thinking outside the box!

    TWMP Elsweyr Valenwood Improved WIP

    Ponyrider0 on the Tesrenewal forum created a Tes4edit script that can resynchronize disconnected LAND and PTGD records, so that quickened things exceptionally. The .esp is “done”, in that all the major cities are accessible and most of the dungeons & settlements are accessible. The new path grid set isn’t done though, so NPCs will probably wander against walls and stuff. I’ll release a Very Beta Beta sometime this week, I hope. Also almost done adding collision to Eressea’s Bosmer Tree City kit that I converted for @Sifonseal last year sometime

    [WIP] FOMO World Map - Tamriel And Beyond

    With Sifonseal's permission, I'm sharing a GIMP file of his FOMO map that can be exported and used in Dynamic Map. I put some of the new lands on his map into new layers; that way you can hide the layers for the lands you don't use before exporting as a DDS and putting it in your game. It's not as slick as Dynamic Map's functionality, but Sifonseal's is perhaps the best-looking, most complete map of Tamriel there is, and this way you can put it in your game! (There's probably a fairly easy way to do this in Dynamic Maps itself, but I haven't taken the time to figure it out and don't know that I will.) Here's what you need: GIMP, which is an open-source image editor like Photoshop Dynamic Map. Install the Core and Tamriel Heightmaps folders using Wrye Bash. Here's what to do: Download the file and open it in GIMP. Open the "Layer - Brushes" window. Click the open-eye icon to hide the elements of the map you don't want to use. You can click the same spot to show them again. Under the "Image" menu, click "Merge Visible Layers." Under the "File" menu, click "Export." Change the file's name to "FOMO Tamriel.dds" and click "Export". Dismiss the warning about not being able to write a volume map. Under the "Compression" menu, choose "BC2 / DXT3." Move the "FOMO Tamriel.dds" file to the /textures/menus/DynamicMap/ folder in your Oblivion Data folder. Open the Dynamic Map.ini file, found in /Data/Ini. Select all, then paste the following into the document, then save. 8. Run Archive Invalidation, just to be safe. It seemed like it was necessary for the new map to take. I may make a new version to put a few other areas, like Sutch or Coldstone, into layers, so this map has even more options. Do mention if you have any other ideas! Here's that link again: FOMO Tamriel.xcf
