      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.

    My E3 2018 Experience

    I don't know what forum to post this in. As requested, here are my thoughts on my E3 experience this year. I had gotten the opportunity to get a media pass to go to E3 this year. (Those not in the know, they recently opened up passes for public purchase. Previously the event was by invite only or you required an approved media pass to be able to attend. The media passes are still a thing, and they get you in for free, rather than having to pay $249 for a ticket.) So I decided to go, along with my friend that got me in through his website. It was our first time meeting in person after having known each other online for 12 years, so that was an interesting experience in itself. If I had to describe E3 in one word it would be... exhausting. We flew in on the day that the showroom floor opened, June 12. We didn't plan well enough to get into any of the conferences. I did want to sit in on the Bethesda one but maybe next year. My plane landed in California at 8:50 am, pacific time after a torturous 6 hour flight in coach from New York, which departed at 5:10 in the morning, eastern time... Pain, suffering, agony... Three words that describe this tremulous experience. Hotel check-in wasn't until 2:00 pm that day, so I had to lug my heavy backpack around for the entire day which only made the first day all the more exhausting. We didn't end up leaving the convention center until around 5:30 pm that day. Thankfully, a mental health organization called Take This (Cool guys, check them out.) was there providing a secluded room which they called the AFK Room where you could come rest for a while. Needless to say, we spent a decent bit of time in there throughout the day. So you probably want me to talk about the games now, right? The first thing we ended up doing after arriving was getting in the line to check out the Nintendo area. They had a gated off section with a bunch of their upcoming games. You had to wait in line to get one of these guys: Card says day 3, but I actually did this twice. They rip up your card before you leave so I thought to take a picture of it the second time. They only allowed you inside the gated area if you presented one of those cards, no matter what kind of show pass you had. Once inside you got stamped for each game you played, and finally you got to turn the card in for some cheap trinkets (Some Mario pins and a Nintendo Switch... cloth? Napkin? Still can't wrap my head around what it actually is.) After that we basically just walked around the show floor for a while, checking things out here and there. We had split up at this point to check things out on our own, so I decided to head over to the Bethesda section. They didn't have much playable that I was really interested in. Fallout 76 wasn't there for some inconceivable reason. It's coming out this year so I don't understand the decision to leave it behind. What I did get to play, however, was The Elder Scrolls: Blades, the upcoming Elder Scrolls mobile game. Honestly, it wasn't that bad. I was expecting it to be, well... not good, but it proved me wrong. The game is pretty neat. You get three distinct areas to focus on. One for PVP, appropriately called the arena, one for dungeon crawling and town management, and one that's an endless dungeon. I chose the endless dungeon for my demo. It controls the best it can for a mobile game. You tap where you want to go on the screen and your character will run to that point. The combat was interesting, but not the best thing in the world. You hold down on the screen and let go when the little circle around your finger turns yellow and then your character attacks. I was disappointed in the lack of world interactivity. I went up to a crate, for example, and I was unable to look inside it. You can only interact with designated items that have a yellow glow around them. Another thing that kind of bugged me is just how many of Skyrim's graphic assets they straight up ripped from the game and plopped in here. You can tell that they're the same meshes, for almost everything. It does look pretty impressive for a mobile game though. I'm interested in checking out more of it when it comes out, but I'm not a huge mobile game player so that probably won't change. I also got a free ice cream from the Rage 2 ammo truck which was pretty funny. It was an ice truck decked out to look like an armored van. They were also giving out real, edible Elder Scrolls sweetrolls! So that was fun. Day 2 was a bit more interesting. We got there bright and early and were able to get into the line to play the upcoming Pokemon games. (Yes mom, I still play Pokemon.) I ended up kind of regretting that decision because we waited in that line for 3 solid hours. The games were pretty ok but nothing to really brag about, at least according to the guided demo that I played. They had a staffer at each demo unit guiding you through, telling you exactly what you were and weren't allowed to do. We were pretty tired after that and decided to go get some overwhelmingly priced lunch. The rest of the day we just kind of did some more wandering. I went to get some rest and while I was scrolling through twitter I saw that one of my favorite youtube channels, Funhaus, was doing a live show at the GameSpot booth, so I went over there to check it out. Seeing them live was a pretty surreal experience, especially after this happened... (Spoiler because it's a giant embedded video) I got to be part of the Q&A. Yeah, that's me. I didn't know what to ask so I just asked them an inside joke that only people that watch the channel would understand. Definitely the highlight of the show for me though. After that we wandered around some more before heading back to the hotel to rest up for the final day. Day 3 was basically all wandering around because we had already seen everything at that point. My friend stayed until 5:00 pm when his flight had to take off so we parted ways and I stayed until closing until I had to get over to the airport for my flight. Another agonizing 6 hours in coach after having to wait at LAX for 4 hours because I had no where else to go. Farewell LA. You're a terrible place, please don't ever change. Here's a picture of all the crap I left with. Of course I had to buy the Dark Brotherhood shirt and sticker at the Bethesda booth. Would I do it again? That's a tough question to answer. I did have a good time. It was definitely worth experiencing at least once in my life. Maybe if I go again next year I'll only do one or two days. All in all, good experience.

    Hello TAL. I'm posting this today because I have been attempting myself at recreating my childhood experience of playing this game. I have to say thank you and you all gave great insight and suggestions on details that i could imagine are somewhat lost in todays modern day computer world. I have successfully emulated this game in a virtual machine and it runs Flawless. In my attempts to get this game running i tried windows 95, 98, xp,7,1 and after a sleepless night or two of tinkering i was finally able to launch the game. windows xp won't run the game at all; windows 95 (the one with IE) will run the game but not display right; windows 98 was the only OS that would run properly. I installed three crucial (i think) components to the system. 1. 256 bit color driver 2. Direct X8 (holy smokes this had windows 98 support!!) 3. ac'97 audio driver ps - my first attempt at making an iso failed miserably and resulted in the game starting, flashing a black screen and closing. The iso file was just 30 mb but upon inspecting the underside of the actual CD i could see the whole thing is written to so i'm guessing something was lost. i worked around this by putting the actual cd in the host machine and setting the cd drive in virtual box

    A thread of Uniformity Mods for Morrowind Gameplay vs. Text Over the years of playing Morrowind, I've noticed how many things which you read in books or are said through dialogue are inconsistent with what actually appears in gameplay. There have been many mods made which address a lot of these inconsistencies, either taking the form of bug fixes or lore-friendly additions to the game world. The goal of this thread is to make a list of all of these incongruities and list mods which address those issues. Modders can consider this thread a source for ideas, while players can consider this thread a place to share inconsistencies you have discovered with others and find potential mods to add to their playlist. For example, Savants will tell you this about Ald Redaynia: We know from gameplay that the only thing at Ald Redaynia is the ruined Wizard Tower. However, there are two mods which aim to address this inconsistency between dialogue and gameplay: Ald Redaynia Extended and Redaynia Village (my personal choice of the two) Please note, that I'm not stating that the way the gameplay turned out is automatically wrong if it disagrees with text, but it is oftentimes less interesting. With that introduction out of the way, let me get the thread started with my list of findings. The thread will be divided into several different categories: Inconsistencies: Explicitly variant material; those things which are said to exist in dialogue or books but which do not appear or are not recognized in the game. Ineffectuals: Implicitly variant material; those things which aren't explicitly absent from the game but which are severely underdeveloped. Inferences: Conclusions drawn from underdeveloped or hinted at material. These are much more subjective. Take it or leave it. Information: Items of somewhat obscure information hidden in the game's text. Change log List of Inconsistencies Explicitly variant material List of Ineffectuals Implicitly variant material List of Inferences Conclusions drawn from underdeveloped or hinted at material List of Information Obscure information >>> Please share your own experience with inconsistencies here in this thread! <<< >>> Please follow the format I have used when posting: quotation, issue, solution (if applicable) <<< >>> Feel free to use this thread for discussion of the lists in this post or lists posted by other members. <<< >>> If you know of or make any mods which address these items (or items which are not listed), please share here! <<<

    The most Restless Night of Sleep Ever!

    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!!!

    I’ve read in various sources that male Brits aren’t fully developed until they’re 3 or 4 years old. It might be just muscle mass, but when fully developed they should be quite solid. Apparently it’s testosterone that gives them the big cheeks, or JOWLS, as Ama puts it.

    Even the different colours have different prices because of their rarity. First you have to import the cats and then you need to come up with the right combination to get the results you want. I seriously lucked out with my first pair because I had no clue what I was doing. Now I would focus more on getting a chinchilla colour, which would be pretty expensive. And I think it's time to announce that I got my site updated finally. Cor Auratum is my cattery. The logo was done by Amadaun. Thanks Ama! Btw, I didn't change the colour, I just put it on the banner with the dark blue background and I thought the effect looked awesome. If you visit on a mobile device with low resolution, like a cellphone, you'll see the banner change and the logo drops down and shows its real colours. I still have a few fixes to upload to the live site, which I'll do shortly.

    I have already posted this on AFK Mods, so I thought why not have the same thread here. Although, I didn't added a unsorted loadorder on AFK Mods. Not sorted BOSS LOOT Note, I gave up trying to mod the Steam version of Oblivion due for various reason e.g stupid application error, some errors with WB as well etc just to mention a few reasons why I gave up trying. Feel free to post your result of sorting a loadorder, with a lot of mods, in both BOSS and LOOT then post it in this thread just to use it as a reference when updating the masterlist for both BOSS and LOOT.

    Arkshtrumz EV

    Version 1.0.0

    33 downloads

    This is a translation of the brilliant Dwemer Ruins of Arkshtrumz mod created by a Russian modding team. Ramza at TESALL provided quite a bit of support getting the scripts translated right, in addition to granting me permission to release my translation. This .esp obviously won't work without downloading the original mod from: http://tesall.ru/files/file/3880-dvemerskie-ruiny-arkshtrumc/ The mod is difficult to describe, so if you're interested you might checkout the video trailers in that link's Screenshot section to decide if you'll like it. The "Ruins" are absolutely immense, perhaps one of the few mods where I literally felt as if I was getting lost during my explorations. My translation has been in-progress for...well over a year, now: such is the vastness of the mod. It probably took me a good 16-20 hours of play to complete the "questliine" of the mod, and even then I may have missed some secret areas. However...this mod is confusing, so if you have questions, please post them. I'll try to compile a FAQ to address questions or concerns.

    That’s why I don’t use Chrome. It’s ironic, given that Google tracks you and sends your personal information to advertisers. Anyway in this case, it’s complaining because it can’t verify the SSL certificate. If you search for that error message, you’ll find a bunch of solutions, including some that simply tell you to clear your cache. For the record, I get a similar error with Firefox, although Firefox admits that it might be just a misconfigured certificate.

    It would be very interesting to make it compatible with Oblivion XP. Could I award XP points for skill checks? What do I need to do? I could add the lines to make it compatible before sending it to you. This way, you'd be able to doublecheck if the XPs are given correctly as well. Thanks for the suggestion!

    [RELz] TWMP Valenwood Regrown BETA

    Ummm...the tree replacer should be OK. I'm not sure about the OCO patch. And, you don't want to have ValenwoodImproved in your LO at all. Otherwise everything willl double up. Unless you mean the Meshes/Textures for the 1030 version, which should be fine Man, Oblivion will forever .baffle me. So...I was testing the game PERFECTLY FINE the other night...but last night I rebuilt my Bashed Patch, and now if I look up anywhere that DistantLOD starts to view...CTD. I disabled the Bashed Patch, that didn't help. I disabled Valenwood Regrown, that didn't help...I reset my Oblivion.ini, that didn't help. I seriously have no idea what's going on. -.-

    First things first: I HATE MOVING. SO DAMN MUCH. At least I have stable internet now, and now let's continue the Misadventures of Perfectly Good Content That's Been Stolen and Turned to Shit. So last we left off, Not-Heather Poe has been turned into a dried up human Caprisun and Lilith/Not-Christian are losing their shit. Lilith begs Not-Christian Grey to give the middle finger to the Masquerade and the Rules of the Not-Camarilla by turning Not-Heather Poe into a vampire. He is conflicted because he's realized this whole excuse of a plot is fucked a Not-Primogen and he doesn't have approval. The ramifications of his actions will cost him something, and yet he knows the life of an innocent hangs in his hands. There's no guarantee that she'll survive the transformation, and even if she does, there's a potential she'll just be beheaded by the Sheriff's pathetic cousin, Terry. Who still owes me money. Fuck you Terry, you prick. But his desire to bone and be a white knight for Lilith is too much for him to bear, and so Not-Christian Grey and Lilith race Not-Heather Poe to his office. On a positive note, Lilith reminisces on some old memories of when her and Not-Heather Poe first became roommates, showing that the writers can do well once they stop stealing shit. Not-Christian Grey then informs Lilith that surviving the first night is the hardest part because there's such a high chance of become a Discount Wassail. To prevent her from going Full Wassail--I mean, Feral--, Not-Christian Grey has to do a ritual-thing...which involves shoving her in a sarcophagus. At least I don't have to break into a museum, but then that means I don't get to meet a dashing, intelligent, snark master of an archeologist who studies the origins of vampires. What a shame. It might have redeemed story. Anyway, nobody notices the obviously dying woman in Not- Christian Grey's arms as he goes through the building. And wouldn't you know it, Stereotypical Right Hand Woman sees this and promptly asks WTF and he's all, "just roll with it." Stereotypical Right Hand Woman pieces together that Not-Christian Grey is going to Embrace Turn Not-Heather Poe and is pissed, but he tells her to STFU. They get in the elevator and go down to The Archives, which leads to The Chamber and-- Wait what? So on top of a woefully outdated Archive room, there's a creepy ass chamber with a sarcophagus? In the ginormous corporate building? In New York City? What the fuck??? Convenience is the only reason that this thing exists. Fucking hell. God forbid someone the PC cares about actually dies as a result of Lilith's actions to be a fuckwit earlier. Moving on... So they get to the Chamber and Lilith is trying to piece together the logic behind shoving someone in a sarcophagus and Not-Christian Grey says, "No idea, it just does. Btw, it might not even work." He might as well have just said, "Look, world building is hard when you can't steal shit. Leave me alone and stop asking questions." Lilith then offers her blood to help and he is stunned that she knows this piece of info. She tells him (at least one can choose to) that Kue-Jin Blades Rodriguez told her the things and he's all, "meh, k." More nothing then happens and eventually, Lilith decides to wander the archives and finds another acid-trip inducing fragment. The acid trip takes her back in time to see Egyptian Ming Xiao, Mr. Angry Bits, and Dumbass French Vampire Child in a castle. Apparently the locals found out they were vampires and decided that their kind wasn't welcomed in those parts. Damn Bigots. Anyway the three of them play the blame game as to who is at fault and Chekhov's Sire waltzes into the scene, telling them all to grow a pair and that they're totes going to slaughter the villagers, LOL. And so they do. Chekhov's Sire says that he's getting too old for this shit and proposes that they sail away to the New World and make their own little kingdom there. Lilith snaps out of her Purple Haze and meets Not-Christian Grey in the elevator. He tells her that he knows he did the right thing morally, but that there will be huge ramifications for this. Not-Christian Grey then reveals that he has to file an appeal to allow Not-Heather Poe in, and Stereotypical Right Hand Woman was hoping to be the next addition to his clan. Lilith, for fucking once, voices a concern and he's all, "Nah, she's fine!" I'm sure this won't become an issue later. Not at all. Egyptian Ming Xiao greets the two of them and pulls Not-Christian Grey aside to promptly chew him a new one, saying that he's on thin ice and he's about to get his ass reamed by the Discount Camarilla. Lilith opens her mouth like an idiot and Egyptian Ming Xiao calls both of them out for being idiots. Not-Christian Grey tells her that she's not his real mother and storms off to the rooftop because she doesn't understand what it's like to be young. She then turns to Lilith and tells her that if shit goes south, she'll kill the PC herself. Oh, and get her a coffee too. Bitch. Holy shit, guys. Can it be? A real character? Egyptian Ming Xiao attempts to salvage the plot by telling us more about herself and, indeed, is the most interesting person in the whole damn story. Fingers crossed, guys. Lilith decides to go and see if Not-Christian Grey has stopped listening to Good Charlotte and have a possible chance to bang him. No. I'm serious. That's an option. Known him for less than a week (48 hours at best) and it's an option. You know, when I said I wanted choices in my games, that's not what I meant. So they shoot the shit for a little bit and Not-Christen Grey reveals he's part of the Dead Wife as Part of a Backstory Society and talks about how she turned Feral. After he was forced to kill her he decided that he was going to give up his life as an over-indulgent fuckboi and make society better. So. Fucking. Original. I for one decided at the beginning to not romance a single person, so I went to the internet to see what happens. Gamer Poop has deeper writing than this shit. I'm so glad I didn't waste in-game currency on that shit. The two return and they open the sarcophagus and then the chapter ends. Thank. Fuck. For. That.

    I was removed via planned c-section because I apparently refused to be a normal baby. Or even a normal breech baby. The OB/GYN actually had to untangle all my limbs. And according to my mom, I glared at her once I was out.

    Better Dwarven Spectres - Mer and Maidens Edition View File This mod adds the long desired female Dwarven Spectre to the leveled lists and replaces one unique spectre with the new model. In addition, thanks to Moranar, this mod is also a BB conversion of the original Dwarven Spectre. And in addition to THAT, the mod also adds the Dwarven Robe worn by the spectres as a random drop from them; complete with male and female versions (just ignore all that sticky ectoplasm). The mod includes 4 different versions: If you want a 75% chance for male spectres and 25% chance for female, install "Dwarven Spectres BB + Fem.esp" If you want a 50% chance for male spectres and 50% chance for female, install "Dwarven Spectres BB + Fem (50-50).esp" If you want a 75% chance for male spectres and 25% chance for female, and for them all to be renamed to "Dwemer Spectres", install "Dwemer Spectres BB + Fem.esp" If you want a 50% chance for male spectres and 50% chance for female, and for them all to be renamed to "Dwemer Spectres", install "Dwemer Spectres BB + Fem (50-50).esp" Enjoy the mod!

    Recipes

    Anyone believe in the wondrous benefits of herbal tea? I usually have it in a mix - usually at least 5 parts camellia sinensis, at most two parts Echinacea, at most two parts Rooibos, and one part something else- usually stuff around that comes up as "weeds." In the last category, common here are St. John's Wort, Tagetes lucida (weedy because I allowed it to spread in the garden), Stellaria media- and most notably nettles. Yea, tons of nettles! Not the widely used European species, but our own Urtica Incisa! Take a trip down to the gully and grab a handful (gloves on, of course)- Super bucket by the way. PVC with a vulcanised rubber component?- had it for years. Can't get them any more, but still looking. The finished product after 5-6 days drying: Preference is to harvest my own, rather than go down to the local organics store and pay $100 kg like the rest of us schmucks for the Euro brand.

    Oh my god, modcraft was such a shit show. The amount of gymnastics I had to do to get that damn darkbrotherhood.com website in order was infuriating. They had this horrible theme that they bought that they insisted on me using but it was such a broken, ugly looking piece of shit that I would have had to be some kind of wizard to make it work. In the end I just rebuilt the entire site from the ground up because it was so bad. They also had some really questionable stuff stored on the server for the site that I won't specifically get into... Those people were a nightmare to work with. Not to mention that any time I needed to get something done I'd have to go track "him" down on the vent server and butt into whatever fucked up conversation they were having. Then there was the whole part about me being threatened by Mr. Marine Moneybags when you guys were trying to split when I didn't even know what was going on. I have more but before this becomes the Modcraft horror story thread, I'll leave it at that.

    Fun Facts about Me

    I once sold my sister her own toys back in a "garage sale" after she left them in my room. I made a little over $5, and bought candy with my ill-gotten gains.

    [WIP] PRISM of Hammerfell

    "The Culture of Hotaji Oasis" There is a village of the Hotaji tribe stretched around the picturesque eponymous oasis. The ancient traditions of the tribe was fully preserved thanks to deep isolation from the outside world. Hence the architecture of the village and many other elements of ancient culture survived to this day in this Divines-forsaken place. The gods of Hotaji are very similar to their traditional images, which further strengthens the assumption of their ancient origin. The use the word "Tomo" for their gods, which means "nature", "law". All gods together are called "Ratomo" ("strong laws"), and the chief deity of their pantheon, the ancestor of all other gods, is also named Ratomo, which can be translated as "Great god". The current head of the pantheon is Ramangai, sun god who grants life. His right hand is young Tomei, who's helping the souls of the dead to find their way into another world. Utatori is the secret keeper who separates the permitted knowledge from the forbidden. The great warrior Ransei protects from the enemies and guides hunters to strike a sure hit. Mo-G'yetang, Ransei's brother, is the patron of all skilled men. Ratomo's wife is Tavadotomo, our familiar goddess of fertility and sky, not quite different from her modern version. She is assisted by beautiful JitÅndo, the goddess of art and harmony, and the wise goddess Tuenara, the Hearthkeeper. Kept aloof are Noroigura, trickster god who is treated as the cause of all troubles, and evil Syatokashi, the master of storms, hurricanes, and droughts, the one who wishes to sow only destruction. The elder of the tribe, the only one who knows our language, has told me this legend. "At the beginning of time we all, the gods, the people, lived on a large flat boat in the midst of the waves. It was because there was only one small island in the sea, which had not enough space to even one family. However, everyone lived happily. Chief Ratomo and his wife Tavadotomo gave life to other gods and men, and sharp-sighted Ramangai saw to it that the sun was not too bright and not tortured anyone with thirst. But then the greedy Noroigura decided that the life was not good enough, and the pitching was too severe. He persuaded the skilful Mo-G'yetang to dismantle the ship and build from it the large multi-tiered Pagoda on the island. This place was named Hotaji, and everyone began to live there. "But the evil god Syatokashi sighted the Pagoda from afar and decided to devour anyone who lived there. The seer Utatori revealed the plan and warned the wise mistress Tuenara. Tuenara judged that it was necessary to break the Pagoda, before Hotaji was found by Syatokashi. She persuaded the beautiful JitÅndo to share a night with the great warrior Ransei so he would agree to destroy the Pagoda, because it was possible only to his strength. Tavadotomo caused rain to slow down Syatokashi, as Ransei came to the Pagoda and was going to strike it with his sword. But he was impeded by Noroigura who felt sorry for the Pagoda, and the sword pierced Noroigura's heart. Noroigura didn't die, because at the time no one knew the concept of death, but his spilled blood softened the island soil, and the Pagoda collapsed. Without the old boat, everyone was going to sink down and would have lived on the sea floor, but the greedy Noroigura grabbed one of splinters, and the other gods and men followed his example when they saw that he is a-floating. "For long years, men-of-hotaji drifted slowly on the waves. During this time the god Tomei was born to JitÅndo and Ransei. Tomei didn't know a happy life yet, and therefore he decided to lead the oldest and worthiest people to the sky, believing that the better life awaits there. Many years later, the waves drove men-of-hotaji upon the far shores. The Hotaji, with no Ratomo left among them by this time (even Tomei was spending more and more time at the sky), went deep into the desert, deciding that they will be able to hide there from the devastating Syatokashi. Besides, everyone was heartily sick of pitching. Since then, they live near the oasis, which gives everything necessary for a happy life. And no one is building pagodas more than two palm trees in height."

    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.
