      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!

Creature Concept: the Hackwing

This is one of the few creatures that is mentioned in lore, and people will be expecting to see in black marsh. My idea is that it could be a circling, animated static like mr siika made in his Raven and Vulture mods:http://www.tesnexus....le.php?id=23523


Anyway, the description of the beast is as follows:


Jarth's Scotti finds creatures called Hackwings in Black Marsh, "giant birds with long, saw-like beaks nearly the size of the rest of their bodies." A fellow traveler in the novel says of them that "like everything else in this damnable place, they'll eat you if you don't keep moving. Beggars pounce down and give you a nasty chop, and then fly off and come back when you're mostly dead from blood loss."


Obviously the flying attack would be really hard to script, but if they were a flying animated static they could still be a menacing presence hovering over the marshes.


So would anyone be up for drawing a concept of this creature?


Another beast present in Black Marsh is the feathered serpent, which could possibly also fly and be animated in a similar manner...

Y'know, this beast would be really easy to do for TES5 as a modification of the standard dragon swoop attack, based on those early gameplay videos....
