      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!

  1. Oblivion Screenshot Thread

    One of those times I'm glad Oblivion doesn't have the capability to animate something: Just a quiet night scene:

    Once you release your mod, that forum will be removed. If you upload your mod here, you would do so in the released mods section where the public can download it and a thread will be created in this forum. We need these release threads in order to facilitate the move to other forum software. Many packages do not have a file download area. Files are stored as attachments to forum threads instead.

    What bloody difference does that make? Now as you’ve said, all you’ve done is broken a ton of links. Please restore the original file or move your files elsewhere. Nobody has ever posted in this thread until Leo bumped it. You could have ignored that and this thread would still be empty.
  4. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    More updates. Bethesda has continued to release updates for this that tweak the balance and costs. The updates are looking good so far. They’ve added another feature to the Arena that allows you to have one-on-one battles with a miscellaneous NPC. These are quite easy so far and a good way to collect some gold. Bethesda says that the PvP battles are “coming soon”. Personally I’m not interested in that, but it sounds like it will appeal to many players. I’ve found that the updates award a lot more gems, which I’m really happy with. I was also given the Watcher’s Helm and Sword in my new game, which I really wasn’t expecting. I got them much later and really didn’t need them anymore, so I sold them. I’ve also gotten a few other gifts for my early play that have really helped. The dungeon crawls are still quite repetitive, but Beth has added more wilderness jobs to help break the monotony. I still wish I could fire a spell from a distance, but I’m starting to figure out the timing in combat, so I guess I can say I’m liking this more and will continue to play.
  5. I got my early access notice today and have grabbed it for my iPad. No tiny screen for me - I’m blessed with an iPad Pro which I got a few years ago when things were better. There’s no NDA with this; in fact Beth wants people to post about it and post screenshots. I’ve just started and it looks really good so far. The music is similar to Skyrim and the graphics are excellent. I’ll post more once I’ve actually started playing. I need to dig up my Beth.net credentials first.
  6. 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.
  7. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    Have you tried contacting Xae for the backup? Apparently he has a full backup of DC before taking it down. I can work with a database backup to restore the thread here, or give you the SQL queries for you to do it for AFK.
  8. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    I don’t think we have anything worth keeping.

    The thread simply lets people know the mod has been uploaded here. It provides an opportunity for the community to provide support. It does not force you to provide support. I will not lock this thread. Please don’t change the title of the thread. The threads are generated automatically.
  10. Like almost everything else you don’t like about the game, there is a mod to change that. I use Supreme Magicka, which allows me to customize the number. Having said that, I rarely use potions and use spells instead, which is once again more feasible with SM.
  11. Sexism in Comics

    Ah, yes, SuperMAN versus SuperGIRL. It's so fucking sexist, it's disgusting. Just think of the Australian Open a few years ago when the on-court presenter asked Eugenie Bouchard to twirl her skirt. Yeah comics are like that, but SG is particularly annoying to me.
  12. Sexism in Comics

    Why doesn’t that surprise me?
  13. [RELz] Elsweyr's City of Rimmen

    GOG has Oblivion on sale right now for 50% off. I have seen it cheaper than that nearer to Christmas, but it might still be a good deal if you want to grab it.
  14. Games on Sale

    GOG is having their summer sale and they just announced that Bethesda has joined in. I noticed that Oblivion is 50% off.
  15. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    I set up DC in 2011. I was an idiot and trusted someone I shouldn’t have. I was removed as an admin in 2013 so then I founded TAL as a replacement.
  16. Elsweyr: Desert of Anequina Remastered

    Is Beyond Skyrim still a thing? I thought they were done. Dark Creations shut down because everyone had left. Can you imagine writing a program that would convert a mod to a different game? Take a mod like Elsweyr and convert it to Skyrim. Part of the process would be to find the equivalent meshes in Skyrim and convert the Oblivion meshes. So an Azalea bush from Oblivion would become the equivalent in Skyrim, using Skyrim meshes. Still a lot of work cleaning everything up though.
  17. [RELz] Elsweyr's City of Rimmen

    GOG now sells Oblivion full edition (all DLC’s) DRM free. They have it on sale quite often so you could pick it up quite cheaply if you wanted. A lot of mods require Shivering Isles now.
  18. [RELz] Elsweyr's City of Rimmen

    Yes, welcome back!
  19. Feedback thread

    Yeah a lot of stuff doesn’t work well in IPS 4. One thing you can try is to switch to the Invision white theme when you’re trying to do something that isn’t working properly, then switch back once you’re done.
  20. General mod idea thread.

    I actually have a version of that in a spreadsheet that also has the days of the Revenant marked. Black soul gems are very handy. I would also suggest having a wall calendar version that you could mount on the wall in a player house. Obviously I don’t have the time to take on such a project.
  21. [Relz, WIP] Elsweyr Pelletine

    Welcome back! Good to see a new release.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Modem issues as explained in my status update.
