    @Amadaun This is who I was referring to in the other thread. Her name was Cyra, Persian for "Moon". My "baby" from 1998-2015. Ironically, also the year my twins were born, so she briefly got to meet my new babies.

    OK, since I re-invented the wheel last time dammit, let's try again. Well, I don't actually regret that, it turned out to be a very productive thread (thanks, Vorians!), and I can think of other uses for that map code too. But wouldn't it be nice if we could actually see a result sometimes? So this time, I've taken an older piece of batch editing, which in turn was inspired by AB's floater-detect code, and used it to make all the Unique Landscapes logs into Qarl's Harvest activators that give you fungal ingredients. The result is here: Qarl's Harvest for Unique Landscapes And here's the code (yes, it does need more comments, but I'm losing the will to live right now . Need a beer, soonest.):

    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

    [WIP] The Brotherhood of Old

    Hey all, so here's the gist of what's going on. I'm happy to say that the mod is indeed complete. It's done. It's playable from start to finish. What's holding back the beta at this particular moment in time is that I had an idea towards the end of development, and I just couldn't release it without that in. So I'm currently working on that, and it should be done by next weekend. Other than that, I do have a problem in a few spots where I'm getting that pesky dialogue bug (the one where you have to save and reload to talk to the person) so the flow isn't 100% due to that. I need to get that fixed before I can release it. I'll probably send it off to beta once this new feature is done, however. So yeah that's where things are at right now.

    Could you rename it 'The Abode of Existential Dread Wherein The Long Dark Night Of The Soul Continues Unto Eternity Or Until The Heat Death Of The Universe, Whichever Comes First.'? I'm just not sure about this 'Fun' idea. Though I know young people these days sometimes have it, whatever it is...

    [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.

    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.

    This is getting silly. We're not going to pick something unusable. Heck, I can't even use 4.x due to the interface. In order to do anything, I've had to look it up in the code. I've worked with phpBB, SMF, this stuff, and more over the years so I think I can speak from experience when I say that not all of them fit our needs, we just need to find one that ticks most of the boxes. For instance, SMF has better defaults but phpBB is more flexible. We just need to carefully evaluate things, this "I won't use such and such because someone else isn't using it right" isn't helping matters. It kind of muddies the waters so to speak, making it harder to figure out if it will fit our needs. NodeBB is free software so there's a good chance that we'll be able to modify it even more than this thing we're on now. It doesn't guarantee it but it does make it easier since we won't need to worry about IPS bitching at us for making too many changes. So let's just relax and enjoy the show. "You're in good hands with Allstate."

    I'm surprised at the "I'm out" stuff. IMO it's the people that make the forum, not the software. I'm sure that Andalay will get whichever software she chooses configured well, or switch to one that can be. I only wish I knew enough to be of some help, but my experience starts & ends with BBS's circa 1994.

    Hey Bong. I have here a VERY ROUGH draft of a relocation patch for you. The lightsabers are in a chest in the Arch-Mages Lobby, on the semi-circle table. Only mods that alter the Arcane U Arch-Mages lobby may conflict, and probably at worst, it would just be floating in mid-air, or superimposed into some other object the author placed in the same location. Doubt it's going to be a problem. The Bow of Thunder is located in the Chorrol Fighter's Guild, tower, lowest level. It's in a barrel on top of two crates, with a candle on top to mark it. I've never heard of a mod that alters this location, even Fighter's Guild specific ones, so I thought this would be a good place. I've altered the note for the Bow of Thunder to make it a more fun & comprehensible read. (Have you read the original?) I've also set both chests to respawn so you can go back and get more lightsabers & unenchanted versions of the bow should you ever want to. If you don't want that, let me know, I can change them all back. Bear in mind, I have not had a chance to test this in-game yet - at all. I have cleaned it in xEdit. The only LO requirement should be to load after Jedi Lightsabers & Bow of Thunder Dark. It shouldn't {doesn't} matter where OCC is located in relation. Sorry I couldn't do more today, It's been pretty hectic. Tomorrows not looking much better, but I'll try to clean some things up. I'd like to do things in a way that this will be mergeable into your Bashed Patch so it won't take up an ESP slot. If you wouldn't mind just testing it out & seeing if you can get at both items I'd appreciate it. Just don't save after doing so and your savegame should be fine with the next revision. I'll be able to work on it in about 18 hours, but I'll still be able to read your responses in the mean time. Regards, RM Lightsabers-BoTD Relocated.esp {Removed, see below.}

    Morrowind Script Extender

    Good point. I've added some additional background that captures the gist of the original OP, without all of the now outdated information.
  29. 2 points
    Agreed. I've verified several times with differnet configurations that they are placed in the correct worldspace for OCC. The way I made the patch you would still be able to find them in the closed city worldspaces if nothing else conflicts, which is why you were able to find it in the Arcane U. I don't blame you. If you'd just like to get to playing I can move the location of the rock and chest completely out of the areas touched by Open Cities, then you can just grab them and go. I'll go through your original load order & see if I can find a place untouched by other mods so hopefully there won't be any conflicts. This shouldn't interfere with the little quest line in Bow of Thunder Dark. I'll let you know what I come up with. As far as fixing the land tear in Anvil, without doing some heavy mod deinstallation & testing, I don't think we're going to get that fixed, especially on a save that has lord knows what already baked in. So for your next playthrough, if you plan on using the same or similar mod setup, I'd advise you to add one or two mods, test the problem area on a new end of sewers type save, then add more until you find where the land tear is introduced. When/if you get to that point then we can revisit this. Sound good? Edit: I should ask if you're using any mesh/texture replacers that don't show up in your list of installed mods? If they don't have an ESP &/or you didn't install with Wrye Bash, then they won't show up in your list of installed mods.

    Okay, so I while ago I mentioned the possiibility of altering the tail rotation of the Slaughterfish's animations so the tail goes up-and-down instead of right-to-left. I finally had some time to peer into the guts of files, and yeah it is possible...just kind of tedious. Considering I've done several aquatic animals that should move that way, though...I'll get it done, lol. Edit #1: Fuck BSplines. That is all!

    It depends on what you want to back up. If it's your own files, VM is right, easiest just to copy what you want to keep to your computer. For example, I generally copy my music & documents, and video, if any. Your contacts, calendar, and most settings should be automagically backed up to Google. If you want to back up your applications, for example, so you don't have to re-download them, reconfigure custom settings, or lose game progress, then you generally need a 3rd party tool to do that. I use Titanium Backup Pro (paid ver), but there are others out there that do much the same thing for free (SuperBackup). If you want a full backup of everything, all partitions, etc. maybe try VM's link near the top of the thread. (Haven't read through it yet myself.) Otherwise, as far as I'm aware, it requires gaining root & flashing a custom "Recovery" to your device. Then booting into custom recovery & using it to do the full backup. (If you go for a custom recovery, I highly recommend TWRP-Team Win Recovery Project.) I don't know of any stock Recoverys that will do this. I generally find it unnecessary since Google & most providers provide stock images for free download. (Usually under 300MB zipped.) Samsung used to, as of a year or so ago, but I haven't checked recently. Your best resource is likely to be xda-developers: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-a --in particular, the development sections.

    Heh, some Oblivion things. As a result of earlier discussions here, I have just come up with the concept of SeptimLand (or DrakeLand), a shop, presumably in Bravil, that only stocks items worth one septim. But it stocks all of them. A trivial task to stock it up using some Coda batch processing. Now I just need a zany proprietor, perhaps a semi-retired NPC from another quest. Hmm, how about a young middle-class couple who do up one of the burnt-out houses in Hackdirt and move in. (They love the area because it's so authentic and atmospheric, don't you know?) Others follow, the inn turns into a wine bar, prices go up, etc, the usual... (Should be Bravil, but that's too much to meddle with.)

    [RELz] Weather - All Natural

    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.

    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.

    Version 1.37


    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.

    As promised: My nephew's Minecraft world. I was instructed to build a giant cactus "up to the clouds." A farm, as designed by a five-year-old. Lots of flowers were required. And snow. A house, as designed by a five-year-old. I needed to build a stone fence around a lava pool "so nobody gets hurt by it." Monster island. There's more to come. We're building a "skyscraper" and every floor has to be different.
