      We have a new theme created by Vincent that's now available to everyone. It has been set as the default theme, so everyone should see it when you refresh the page. If you still aren't seeing it, you can select it from the Theme drop-down at the bottom of the page. It's called Assimilation. Thanks Vincent. Awesome looking theme!

    Misc. Creature Resources

    I'm just going to be uploading various odds and ends I've made/end up making here for people to use as resources for their work if they wish. First up is the Abyssfish, a Daedric creature that roams the Waters of Oblivion. Hey, why not? It could exist, certainly. Has anyone ever gone to check and see if it doesn't? ;D Abyssfish

    [RELz] Weather - All Natural

    New version uploaded. Changes: Vorians updated the weather filter for changes made to Unique Landscapes. Copied some changes from the Unofficial Oblivion Patch and the Unofficial Shivering Isles Patch. Thanks to An_dz for bringing these to my attention. NOTE: You must create a Bashed Patch in order to benefit from all the changes that mods like the UOP and the USIP make. This is not new, but some of the "fixes" that some people are proposing tells me that they are not using a Bashed Patch. Added An_dz's fixes to the VaPER Rainboxes, including position adjustments to existing rainboxes and new rainboxes to cells that didn't have them, like the Elder Council Chambers. I have also converted the readme file to a PDF so the table of contents and other links work better. I held off on releasing this in an effort to replicate the stuck weather issue, but my games wouldn't cooperate. I did have fog for several days, but when I reloaded a saved game while in-game the fog immediately cleared. It is normal to have some bad weather during certain seasons, but if you feel you have stuck weather, try reloading a saved game. If that doesn't work, please equip the weather debug ring and report the results here.

    [RELz] Oldblivion

    Oldblivion View File First of all: This isn't my file! It's a release of a file that used to be hosted at the UESP. Now many links to that page fell under a nasty attack a few years ago, so much of the useful info related to the usage of Oldblivion has gone forever. For further info see this post to AKB at UESP (the last link may die soon viz. the UESP archiving system but it will be in the archives) For anybody wishing to sample Oblivion on a very old machine, with an old card (think 256mb or less), or in VirtualBox or VMWare (think 2000, XP or Windows 7 at most) and the DX drivers are compatible with newer cards(big ask) then try this! Most info on getting started is in the included readme.txt file. Enjoy! Submitter Schtearn Submitted 11/17/2017 Category Items & Resources

    I'm relieved. I think GOG has most of the games I consider essential. If it isn't a decade or more old, I can't be bothered... And next time they have a deal on OB, I'll be grabbing that just to be sure. (And I still don't have Battlehorn Castle...)

    [RELz] Weather - All Natural

    I'm sorry, RM, I do go on sometimes. But I hadn't shared that bit of craziness with anyone, and since this is a quite technically oriented forum I thought I'd get it out of my system. But it ain't quite that crazy - there's no quantum in there, just classical phys, strictly Newtonian. My background's partly in chemistry, reckon I learned a lot more about quantum mechanics from that, oddly, than from the physics lessons. But it doesn't come into everyday astro calculations, though a bit of relativity can help. Though that's classical too. [I've noticed that there is definitely something relativistic going on with Oblivion dungeons. Time passes at a different rate inside. So you can leave, sit down, have lunch, and go back in to find that the enemy who has given up chasing you has only moved a few metres away. Twin paradox on a local scale.] Yeah, I do agree with you and Malonn, we should be grateful. It just seems odd is all. If you compare Gimp with Photoshop, it's almost as easy to use, pretty intuitive. Can't see why the same shouldn't apply with 3D. Oh well, so it goes...

One of my favs from a while back: Though I think most of their fans prefer this one I think there's a lot of other fantasy/epic metal (or whatever they're called now) bands out there.

    Vincent made the requested changes to the Assimilation theme and I have uploaded it. You may need to do a hard refresh (CTRL+F5 in Windows) to see the updates. Now that we're settled for now, my focus will be on getting the server OS upgraded. Once the OS is upgraded, I'll get SSL set up. We will continue to evaluate new forum software, but our license doesn't expire until January, so we have lots of time. I'm going to be quite busy in RL for the next couple of weeks.

    I love snow, although it's frustrating that so many people don't know how to drive in it. It must be so much worse in England though! It's just the dark days and the wind chill that makes winter hard to deal with. Ironically the clear sunny days are the coldest, but also the best.

    The first thing that comes in conversation here in Canada is the weather... We have stupid levels of humidity in summer and wind chill in winter. We also get British winter in November (cold, dark and raining). The rest of the winter is dark and cold, but I guess we should be happy it's not raining. We should ask Bethesda to add bitching about the weather to their next game.

    Self-burnt discs have a fairly short life, especially DVDs. You cannot be sure that a DVD burnt three years ago will still be readable. Business-burnt DVDs should be much more reliable, but nothing lasts forever, and even these can become unreadable over time, without any visible damage.

    It's not guaranteed to free any memory (due to the underlying implementation), though it could be changed to do that. My intention was mainly convenience: reuse an array id instead of generating a new one. I will probably revisit the xGetRace array in the near future. On further reflection, I think a small set of related functions is probably a better way to handle that.

    I didn't know UESP hosted it either! I'm surprised you got it to network install. I tried that just back in April or so because my gaming laptop doesn't have a DVD drive and damn SecuROM had a hissy. Most aggravating is that I can't even UNINSTALL OB without the disk. My poor old Oblivion Disk has about bitten the dust, and I'm hoping it's got one last uninstall in it for my last disk install on my laptop. For years, once I got OB installed then I could play it using an ISO mounted to a virtual drive. Thank goodness for GOG! No more of that BS! Thanks for posting this Schtearn! I've got some old laptops with integrated GPU's I plan on letting my kids use, and this might be fun for them!

    I didn't realise that UESP had ever hosted anything. Anyway, that's interesting. I once managed to network-install Oblivion on my netbook just to see if it could be done. It worked, though I had 2GB RAM, they used to come with 1GB as standard, which would have made it impossible. But performance was, ahem, a trifle lacking - I suspect that OldBlivion would have helped. That was going a bit far, but this could be very useful on older laptops with only slightly higher specs (and a DVD drive, of course, if you want to play it while on the bus).

    I was also tired of my plugins being disabled one by one. I wasn't going to have any left. The ESR is version 52.x and if I'm not mistaken, it will remain version 52.x, with only minor releases until the end of life in 2018.

    I hate having too much at the top of the screen (well, I remember a friend of mine who must have installed half the idiot toolbars on the web, funny watching him try to browse on his netbook). But I manage to clog things up with a side-panes instead of the bookmarks bar. But yeah, without the title bar, that would work OK for me. Right behind you, Commander!

    Looking for New Forum Software

    Posting on Beth.net is easy, it's only when you try to be fancy that things go wrong, or add links which cause the badly set up spam protection thing to block you. Anyone saying "if you do [this] I'll leave" is just trying to blackmail Andalay & VM into doing what they want instead of what Andalay and VM want, which really isn't at all friendly, and will certainly be disheartening to Andalay & VM, and put them off even trying. End result could potentially be that they decide not to bother if too many people are moaning, and just shut the forum down, it saves them money after all.

    Transparent? No one has ever reported that before. I suspect you had an installation issue. 4K = 4x1024 = 4096 and above. 4096x2304 is a 4K display, for example. People have found that even 1440p doesn't work. My monitors are 1920x1200, so I know that works fine. I need someone with a higher resolution than that to let me know if my fix works. Thanks for confirming the other fixes, guys.

    Weather - All Natural All Natural combines a robust custom weather system that allows the use of weather types from all existing weather mods with custom versions of Natural Interiors and Real Lights in order to provide the greatest weather/environment experience possible. The three segments of All Natural will be explained below: 1. Custom Weather System The cornerstone of All Natural is unique weather system that includes a new regional weather script to keep the weather synced on interior/exterior switching and when fast traveling and a variety of optional features to help enhance and customize the user's weather experience. All Natural also allows you to choose from only vanilla weathers or from some or all the weather types from Natural Weather, Atmospheric Weather System, and Enhanced Weather. 2. Natural Interiors Natural Interiors was originally created by Wormheart, and its purpose was to make it so interior locations such as houses and guilds would be affected by the weather outside and time of day, and to make it so interior locations had weather sounds inside very similarly to the original “Weather Inside” mod. To accomplish this, interior windows were made transparent and the sky outside now matched the exterior weather and time of day. The result is you can look out an interior window and see a sunset, stars, etc and also have the interior lighting level change based on it being sunny, cloudy, nighttime, etc, plus you can hear rain/storm sounds from within. Sadly, Natural Interiors was never finished and had some issues. However, All Natural now includes an improved and expanded version that cannot be found outside of All Natural. Also, the Natural Interiors segment of All Natural cannot be separated from All Natural, so you must use All Natural in full to benefit from the Natural Interiors segment. 3. Real Lights Real Lights was an incredibly ambitious project by Josef K. which aimed to replace all the fake lighting (invisible lights with no actual light source) with real lights with real light sources. For example, with Real Lights locations have candles or other light sources that emit light instead of generic white light coming from mid-air. Sadly Real Lights was abandoned long ago and has some issues with save game bloating. However, the mod has now been included in All Natural and has been recently updated to fix all the problems it previously had. The All Natural version of Real Lights is the most updated and safe version of Real Lights and no one should use the older stand-alone version. The Real Lights segment of All Natural is the only segment you can actually use independently, so even if you want to use, say, Enhanced Weather, you can use the Real Lights plugin from All Natural. Instructions on how to do this are included in the installation section of this guide. Patches Support patches for Nascosto Isles, Losing My Religion, and Kvatch Rebuilt are provided in the main package to bring their interiors under the control of All Natural's system. An extensive filter supporting several other mods is also included which attaches climate data to interiors. Additional mods can be added to this, by request, but space is limited due to the number of masters an ESP is allowed to have. This limitation cannot be overcome by any means. So additions to this list will be considered on a case by case basis, and yes, popularity of the requested mod will be a factor in this. Change Log See below (on the file download page) for current change log information. Change log information for previous releases is in the readme. Credits Chong Li was the original creator of the mod and coded the original weather system, Real Lights integration, and Natural Interiors integration, including creating custom meshes. Without him, there would be no mod. WrinklyNinja was a past developer of the weather system and more. Arthmoor was a past developer of the Real Lights plugin and more. Brumbek was a past developer of the Natural Interiors meshes and textures. AndalayBay is the current developer for All Natural. Special Thanks Everyone who supported the mod, whether it be through bug reports, encouragement, or screenshots. Josef K. for the original Real Lights. Wormheart for the original Natural Interiors. Max Tael for the original Natural Environments. HTF, WrinklyNinja, and Halo for Enhanced Weather. LprMan for his weather textures. The OBSE Team for creating OBSE. Superice for synchronizing all of the wind speeds to match the weather types. Wrye and the Wrye Bash Team for creating and developing Wrye Bash. trira (elecgs) for the cloud seam fix Resource Credits This mod contains the textures, sounds and meshes from the following mods: Atmospheric Weather System by HTF Enhanced Weather by HTF Natural Environments by Max Tael Natural Interiors by Wormheart Real Lights by Josef K. VaPER - Vacuity's Particle Effects Resources - Weather boxes Permission was sought for all of the above, and was given where contact with the original author was possible. Important Compatibility Note Anyone using Enhanced Campfire Behavior: It's not compatible with the Real Lights module. Attempting to use the two of them together, regardless of load order, will result in corrupted saves. It's an irreconcilable conflict caused by changes to variable indexes in the script from that mod. If you're already using that mod, removing it may not solve your problem.

I wanted to compare my generated fonts and see how they would look in the game. I also used this mod to play around with MenuQue's menu event handlers. I thought people might find this handy, so I packaged it up and have decided to release it. This little mod has a menu that can be customized to display various fonts. It also has a couple of menu event handlers defined that can be customized to respond to various menus and the actions performed with those menus. Currently the handlers will respond when the vanilla message menu is opened and clicked on. I'm using GetMessageBoxType to determine which message box is open. The enclosed readme has some instructions and you'll find further notes in the scripts.
