      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!

    Welcome back! Good to see a new release.
  2. My second play through of this game is going MUCH better. I don’t know how far I’ll get, but I have noticed a few things that I’d like to pass on as tips. There are some game guides starting to spring up, but I haven’t found these tips listed anywhere yet. Houses One of your main tasks is to rebuild your town. There are three types of dwelling or houses you can build. All three are basically identical so it’s just a matter of style. However, I have noticed that each lot has stairs in place already. When choosing which kind of dwelling to build, try to pick the style that will match the stairs. Weapons and Enchantments As I’ve said in the other thread, all combat is close range and it’s very hard to cast spells. Spells take a while to cast and more often than not, they are interrupted before being cast. As a result your best method for delivering magic damage is by weapon enchantment. Furthermore, the game has what it calls aversion poisons that will only increase damage from a particular kind of elemental damage, as the game calls damage from magic. There are no direct poisons for fire, shock, frost or poison. Instead you either find or enchant a weapon with fire, for example, and apply an aversion to fire poison to increase the damage. This is very effective. Also these aversion poisons are good for several hits, not just one hit like poisons in Oblivion. Unfortunately you can’t apply multiple enchantments to a weapon. You will get bonus enchantments randomly applied by the game, but you won’t get a combination of more than one kind of elemental damage. Enemies are only vulnerable to a specific kind of elemental damage and in some cases, only one kind of physical damage, so you’ll need to carry around several different kinds of weapons each enchanted with a different kind of elemental damage. There are charts that people have published showing the weapons you’ll need along with the enchantments. I might create my own version of the chart and will post it here if I do.
  3. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Ok, I reinstalled this. At first it started over, taking me through the tutorial again. Then it came to the part where it gave me the option to sign on to Bethesda.net. This is no longer mandatory, but I opted to do so. At that point, I was given the option of continuing my old game or continuing with the new game. I opted for the new game as my old game is unplayable. This time I’m being more careful with my character development. It is very hard to cast spells in this game because all combat is up close and if the enemy hits you while you are preparing to cast the spell, it will backfire. This is one of the things I really don’t like about this game. I prefer to cast spells from a distance and only close in with the enemy once I’ve already softened them up with my spells.
  4. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve had enough and deleted Blades. You can’t actually delete an app on Apple. Some apps start over when you install them again, others pick up from where you left off. From what I’ve read, Blades restarts from where you left off. I spent real money to buy some gems to buy an Imperial shipment, so I actually hope it restores my purchase. If not, I won’t spend any more real money on this. Anyway I have no gold and no healing potions, so I just die on every job or quest I attempt. I’m done.
  5. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Modem issues as explained in my status update.
  6. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve been offline for the past two days. Before going offline, I think I started to find a strategy that might keep me playing Blades for a while longer. It is getting tedious though so Beth will definitely need to add more content to keep people playing. I think the Absorb spell and Adrenaline Dodge ability are the keys to keeping my guy alive. I still need a ton of healing potions though. Fallout Shelter is good for a tablet but I can’t imagine playing it on a phone. I have a nice big iPad and even with that, I have trouble finding the Mysterious Stranger when he makes an appearance. Soon my vault will be too big for me to find him at all. I’ll start a separate thread about it.
  7. I’m back! Again. The new modem was a challenge to configure so we’ve been offline for the past couple of days.

      Oh, okay.  Well, good that it's working.  Internet is damn near essential nowadays.  Almost like a toilet.

      It was torture being offline! :lmao:

  8. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve had enough. My character dies with every job now, despite following the various suggestions regarding weapons and enchantments. I find that I just can’t get my character to react fast enough. I’ve always played a Breton in TES games. That meant that it would be a hard grind during parts of the game, but I could muddle through until my character got strong enough. That’s not possible with Blades because you can’t play as a mage. You can’t cast spells from a distance before you close with the enemy. As a result you’re trying to push the enemy away long enough to cast your spells. Ultimately you fail, the spell backfires, which damages your character and you die from the barrage of blows you’re taking from the enemy. I’m continually meeting trolls and wispmothers and they kill me in two hits. Not fun. On top of all that, I can’t even buy or make enough healing potions to muddle through. Tonight I had to attempt jobs with no healing potions at all in the hope that I encountered enemies I could survive. Nope. Wispmothers and trolls. Whack whack dead. Fuck this. Bethesda is making loads from this game right now. Wait until the fervor dies down and the game gets more reasonable. I’d say two years at least. I’ve started playing Fallout Shelter again and it’s much more reasonable than it was originally. I’ll post a separate thread about that.

    *groans* My mother loved that show, but I don’t remember it, thankfully.

    That’s it? I was hoping he would slip and nail his nuts on one of the speakers.
  11. Help needed to customize Firefox

    The addon bug has been fixed with the new versions just released.
  12. Help needed to customize Firefox

    I'm on the ESR* version an that has been updated too. The ESR version is less annoying than regular Firefox. *ESR = Extended Support Release. It doesn't get updated as often.
  13. Help needed to customize Firefox

    Yep, I’ve got Lynx installed on the server.

    I tried Pale Moon but removed it. I don’t think it was able to support some of the add-ons that I use.

    I don’t know anything about MOO. I’ve never used it. With regards to enemies, have a look at the UESP. I linked it earlier in this thread when you were asking about levelling.
