Orphan Attachments 07/31/2018I 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!

This is actually intended as an addition to CraftyBits, but it isn't possible to upload to that section currently. Contained in the archive is:
A hypothetical "Bosmer Oven" made from brass and fire salts, for complaince with the Green Pact. It's technically a free resource for public release, so long as you remove the animated Firesalts from the .nif or get permission from Stesha on Nexus to use the Firesalts...or just replace them with vanilla Firesalts.
A "pemmican strips" resource, mostly intended for CraftyBits.
A burger, pudding, and cherry resource. Only the last of the three was made by me from the pudding, they actually come from an old JPN mod website called SHY that went offline years ago. The permissions say "free to use with credit", so I figured someone might enjoy them...
There's an .esp inside, but it's parented to CLS-CraftyBits.esm...
Tamriel Landscapes - Valenwood_Elsweyr
OBSE -Elys- Universal Silent Voice
Install Tamriel Heightmaps, including Tamriel.esp
Install Tamriel Landscapes - Valenwood_Elsweyr, including TWMP_Valenwood_Elsweyr.esp
Install Valenwood Improved, disincluding ValenwoodImproved.esp
Install Elsweyr Anequina, including ElsweyrAnequina.esp
Install Valenwood Islands, and either include Valenwood Islands.esp or disinclude Valenwood Islands.esp but unpack its .bsa file into loose files in your Data folder
Install TWMP_ValenwoodRegrown, and overwrite any files you're prompted about: I corrected the UV Map on several models
I suggest having them somewhere in the upper-middle of your Load Order, or wherever BOSS positions them, but in this sequence:
Valenwood Islands.esp's position doesn't matter to my knowledge, and ElsweyrPelletine.esp can go before or after TWMP_ValenwoodRegrown. I haven't found any land tears between the two mods, yet.
Corrected some terrain, added streets and pathgridding to Falinesti Harbor
Added a basic quest to Falinesti Harbor: check the northmost warehouse, but not while there's a guard around!
Added a Hydra to the mod, but currently it isn't implemented into the game
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:
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.
This is a translation of the brilliant Dwemer Art: Desert Alik'r mod by Usher7r and his team, which brings to Oblivion the Alik'r Desert of Hammerfell in all its glory. Due to Usher7r's abrupt disappearance (from which I hope he'll return soon!), there's a few unaddressed glitches (such as scorpion/snake venom causing messages to stop appearing on the top left if you or any Actors in the cell have it), which I attempted to rectify by adding a dialogue to give poisoned actors an antidote if you have it in your inventory. With that indirectly remedied, I can personally say -- as I played through both of its main quests and visited almost every dungeon -- that the mod is quite stable, although expect a bit of lag in Alik'ra due to its sprawling size. This .esp obviously won't work without downloading the original mod from:
Accessing the mod's contents currently requires being Arch-Mage of Cyrodiil to initiate the series of events that will lead you there, but it's possible to access the worldspace via cow on the console, and you'll be able to play everything but the quests that directly reference you as Arch-Mage...probably. There's bound to be some incomplete/crude translations of dialogue left that I missed, so please report such instances to me and I'll try to fix them in my next update. Certain books -- specifically ones from Skyrim -- are intentionally untranslated because I either lack the books, or it's a foreign "fan fiction" that's too in-depth for my to translate.
I have an HGEC/RM patch for the mod's clothing and armor available, as well as an OCO2 patch for its races, if people are interested in it. If someone requests either I'll upload them, but it's a bit more complicated than just uploading an .esp.
I claim no credit for this mod beyond the 100+ man hours put into translating it to English. Please refer to the link above for full credits.
A simple-textured frog model rigged to use the vanilla Oblivion Rat’s animations. I've updated the UVMap and given them some designs. Beyond the permission usage of “don’t use this in a mod you’re charging people for”, this is a free resource. If you want to credit me for the time I spent converting it, that would be nice but isn’t required.
The .esp has three different frogs: a light green one, a dark green one, and a bluish one. It also contains the sound effect entries for the creatures, and the blue and dark green frogs are copying their soundset from the light green one. If you're going to copy them into your own .esp, be sure to use the light green one as a base to preserve the soundset.
