  1. Elder Scrolls VI Location analysis

    One thing that stands out in that trailer that hasn't been considered - the crater. It's a bit of an obscure reference, but searching for the word "crater" on UESP leads to this: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Shadowkey:Azra's_Crossing That village on the limn of the crater could be Azra's Crossing.

  4. Keld-Nar

    Version 1.0.1

    78 downloads

    "This doesn't translate to Feldscar at all. It translates to Keld-Nar, a long abandoned village deep inside Skyrim to the north. Keld-Nar lies in between an ancient Nordic tomb, and a large black rock who's origins Keldon and I were never able to determine." - Raminus Polus, circa 3E 433. An age ago, during the Oblivion Crisis, a Nord village found itself on the brink of disaster at the hands of a pair of Dunmer mages. They were on a quest, no, a mission to find what they thought would lead them to salvation against the onslaught of the Daedra. Instead, they found Feldscar and eventually their plans were torn asunder by the Champion of Cyrodiil. But what of the village that Raminus Polus told the Champion about? Keld-Nar, the site of the actual prize the Dunmer sought? Raminus Polus and Keldon Swiftrunner had been there before, but what became of it since then? 30 years ago, refugees of the Great War set forth out of northern Cyrodiil in a desperate gamble that would answer this question once and for all. Where once ruins lay, a thriving village has sprung up in their place. Come in traveler, stay awhile, rest your weary legs and listen to an old man's tale. Keld-Nar is a village in Eastmarch, near the Dwemer ruin of Mzulft. It boasts an inn, a blacksmith, stables to park your horse at, and a decent sized local garrison of troops. Unlike many other populated areas, Keld-Nar welcomes Khajiit, owing to the history the ancestors of the current residents had with them in Feldscar those many decades ago. The village starts off held by Stormcloak Rebels and openly worships Talos, but will change hands to Imperial control if they win the Civil War. Where possible, Keld-Nar should also be included in any town based radiant quests and will be subject to dragon attacks. It may also be subject to random vampire strikes if you have Dawnguard.

  5. Freedom of Speech

  6. Dawnstar

    Version 1.0.2

    77 downloads

    Dawnstar has always been described as a large port city with a lot of activity. What was presented in the game didn't quite do it justice, but until recently putting one's finger on why wasn't so easy. As it turns out, Dawnstar was run by cruel heartless nobles! The miners were condemned to live out their lives neck deep in grime in the mines. Well no more! Now these poor miners have homes like everyone else, and in the process Dawnstar feels more like that larger port city we've been told about too. With six extra homes in it, that shouldn't be much of a surprise. Plus the miners will now go home to sleep, and visit the inn after their shifts are up too. So there will be some of that missing activity now too. * Each NPC now has their own home. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees, that account for the changes.

  7. Dragon Bridge

    Version 1.0.2

    120 downloads

    A small village expansion for Dragon Bridge. Dragon Bridge always seemed like it needed something more, and it did. There was always poor Varnius Junius, who gets sent to Solitude representing the town and everything, but had nowhere to live. Plus his boss, Tasius Tragus, who was never placed into the game, but would also have just lived in the inn. The inn is not a home! Varnius and Tasius now have their own homes on the northeast side of the village, like everyone else in town. It's not much, but there just isn't enough space in the place for anything more. Tasius even has a nice terrace with a view to reflect his presumed status in town. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area.
  8. When Vampires Attack - compatibility question

    There should be no issues using the two mods together.
  9. ESO Skyshards

    Version 1.0.1

    148 downloads

    Long ago, during the second era in the time of the Planemeld, adventurers sought out whatever power they could gain to aid in their battle against Molag Bal. Among these items of power were Skyshards, presumably made available by the gods for those who were dedicated to exploring both the hidden and mundane corners of Tamriel. Not much is truly known about them, but in these trying times of dragons and civil war, the Skyshards have once again appeared for the Last Dragonborn to discover and augment his power. ESO Skyshards places several shards throughout the province of Skyrim, including Dawnguard areas and Solstheim. Much like the ones from ESO itself, once you collect 3, you will earn 1 perk point to spend as you see fit. There are 6 in each section, for a total of 66 shards amounting to 22 extra perk points. That may seem like a lot, but by the time you've found them all you'll likely be pretty high level anyway so it balances out in the end. Sorry, beyond the 3 screenshots displayed for the mod, I will not reveal the locations of all of the shards. They do not have map markers either, and there are no plans to provide any. They are located in a mix of easy areas and hard areas so they should prove to be quite a challenge to locate. This mod will go especially well with mods that expand the number of perks you can use as well as perk overhauls that expand the number of points required to obtain perks.
  10. Helarchen Creek

    Version 1.0.2

    157 downloads

    A village in the mountains southeast of the city of Dawnstar. Tamriel has had many villages on maps for as far back as anyone can remember. What happened to them all? Nobody really knows. This mod is simply my take on bringing one back from Elder Scrolls: Arena. Helarchen Creek was a small village in the game somewhere in the mountains near Dawnstar. Originally it appears as though Bethesda planned to put this around the Nightgate Inn, but then changed the name on that and cut the content. Some further research using old Arena maps placed the village further north anyway, so here it is. * Two of the NPCs can be married and will optionally share their homes with you. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
  11. Dolmen Ruins

    Version 1.0.1

    123 downloads

    In 2E 582, Molag Bal launched an all out invasion against Nirn. His aim was to merge Nirn with Coldharbor in a cataclysmic event that came to be known as the Planemeld. This was accomplished through the use of numerous Dark Anchors, or Dolmens, scattered around Tamriel (and presumably elsewhere too) that were to physically drag Nirn into Coldharbor. It was only through the heroic actions of one known as The Vestige that Molag Bal's plans were thwarted and all of Nirn saved from a gruesome end as soulless slaves. Though history does not record these events, the ruins themselves have survived. Adventurers have to this day reported many are guarded by daedra, others by the undead, and some by unnatural abominations of the wilds. This mod aims to bring a bit of ESO lore to Skyrim by adding 12 inactive Dolmens around Skyrim, all in relatively remote areas. This is primarily just for show but several have enemies to fight as well so you can use them to acquire some of the harder to find Daedric ingredients. Explore Skyrim, and you should run into them soon enough. Don't be lazy, go out and look!
  12. Version 3.0.13a

    19425 downloads

    A comprehensive bugfixing mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Legendary Edition. The goal of the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch (aka USLEEP) is to eventually fix every bug with Skyrim and its 3 DLCs not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package. Warning: Only use the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch with the latest release version of Skyrim patched through Steam! Using it on an older version may cause bugs or things not to be fixed that were advertised as such! It will of course be updated to match each official update, including having fixes removed that are included in official updates. See the full changelog for details.
  13. Oblivion DLC Delayers

    Version 1.0.2

    111 downloads

    This mod is a simple yet immersive and lore friendly way for the official DLC in Oblivion to be started. Normally when creating your charater and exiting the prison cell, you are accosted by a number of highly unrealistic quest prompts that bombard you with information about things you should know nothing about and may not even want for the particular character you are playing. Instead, now you will either be able to find out about these quests via notes or in some cases simply by discovering the locations on your own.
  14. Elder Scrolls VI Betting Pool

    We knew Fallout 4 would be about the Institute and the Commonwealth in general because Bethesda more or less flat out told us that in Fallout 3. There were way too many obvious story pointers for it NOT to be the case. People were speculating on that as early as January of 2009 on the official forums. Well before any leaks that were supposedly providing us new information. The whole fall of a tower thing makes perfect sense to me and there was the much less obvious pointer about the Khajiit and the Void Nights so that seems to make Elsweyr a much more likely candidate with that in mind now. Though I would love to see them include Valenwood along with it since the two provinces aren't exactly large.
  15. Elder Scrolls VI Betting Pool

    Ah, well. Either way, I don't think it would have been useful to renew the trademark and then apply it to a different product in the same series. That kind of defeats the purpose behind having a trademark on something. It's mean to stop confusion, not create it.
  16. Elder Scrolls VI Betting Pool

    I think it's been pretty well established that they renewed Redguard for the GoG.com release. I don't think anyone bothered to check if Arena, Daggerfall, or Battlespire got renewed along with that. As I understand it, the leak image supposedly from 2014 was debunked and then later the leaker said it was a hoax. Just looking at the image it should be somewhat clear since they were talking about E3 and stuff we know wasn't going to be presented in 2014 at all. Obviously doesn't mean TES VI won't be in Valenwood, but that leaked image means nothing in that.
  17. Elder Scrolls VI Betting Pool

    Bethesda has been known to drop hints in their games as to where they may go next. I don't recall much of anything that drew out Hammerfell, but if you take a look at the lore books for the Great War that mention the Void Nights, one could make the case for Elsweyr easily enough. Possibly combined with Valenwood. It would fit in nicely with the whole Thalmor theme considering the Khajiit basically think the Thalmor saved them from extinction. Maybe the 100 years since 4E 100 have given the cats time to think about it and they know they were duped. In any case, I've been pretty steadfastly calling then WHEN of a release for November 2018. It's not so easy to predict the WHERE though.
  18. Karthwasten

    Version 1.0.3

    209 downloads

    A simple village expansion for Karthwasten. Karthwasten is supposed to be a bustling mining town with two actively worked mines, yet only has a couple of buildings and too many NPCs to match. Plus it's a known lore town that's been here for at least 200 years. So this place needed a bit of an expansion to flesh it out and make it seem more like the "Karthwasten Hall" of old, in as much as Skyrim will allow for that. No more pitifully small center of mining for The Reach! * Each NPC now has their own home. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees, that account for the changes.
  19. Version 1.0.1

    214 downloads

    A simple village expansion for Soljund's Sinkhole. Soljund's Sinkhole is another one of those places where it just seemed odd that more was not done. A mining operation that by all accounts would be thriving were it not for a draugr problem. An area that 3 people are effectively living in, with only two actually being housed, and one of whom is a marriage prospect for the player! Such cramped conditions cannot stand, and so this small expansion has been done to releive the crowding problem. * Guard barracks for the guards to live in, with one extra patroller added due to the dangerous area. The jail is just for show, sorry * Perth can now share his house with you if you marry him. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area. Installation Requirements Official Skyrim patch 1.9.32.0.8 or greater. Installation - Wrye Bash BAIN Drop the archive into your Skyrim Mods\Bash Installers folder, then install as usual.

Make sure it's active in the Data Files menu. Installation - Nexus Mod Manager Use the "Download with Manager" button on the page at Skyrim Nexus. The installer should take care of things from there. Then simply make sure NMM has the mod activated. Installation - Manual Drop the Soljund's Sinkhole.esp and Soljund's Sinkhole.bsa files into your Data folder. Activate the mod using whatever management tool suits you.

  20. Whistling Mine

    Version 1.0.3

    320 downloads

    A simple village expansion for Whistling Mine. It always seemed odd to me that an established mine with an active smelter had no place for the people there to live. Whistling Mine is cold, and inhospitable. Nobody in their right mind would actually sleep there! This mod solves that oddity by providing a small village for the 4 NPCs to live in and spend some time in. Cause who wants to spend their lives living in the mine they work in! It was also somewhat strange that Winterhold Hold had nothing but a single half ruined town in it. Installation Requirements Official Skyrim patch 1.9.32.0.8 or greater. Installation - Wrye Bash BAIN Drop the archive into your Skyrim Mods\Bash Installers folder, then install as usual. Make sure the mod is active in the Wrye Bash mods tab. Installation - Steam Workshop Subscribe to the mod via the Workshop page, then use the Skyrim launcher to allow it to download and install. Make sure it's active in the Data Files menu. Installation - Nexus Mod Manager Use the "Download with Manager" button on the page at Skyrim Nexus. The installer should take care of things from there.

  21. Nexus Security Breach

    Just a heads up that Nexus may have had a security breach. Probably a good time to go cycle your passwords.
  22. Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch [USLEEP] As many of you may remember, last year around this time we conducted a poll on whether or not it was the right time to consider unifying the unofficial patches into a single package. At the time, about 25% of those who responded to the poll were still in a position where they did not have all 3 DLCs for the game. So we decided against merging everything at that time. Fast forward to today, it's become quite clear that that 25% is far less than it was, and more and more people have been asking when we're going to be doing this. This post is your answer. Shortly after the release of USKP 2.1.3, we will begin the process of unification to merge the vanilla USKP plus all of the DLC patches into one all encompassing mod, which will be known as "Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch", or USLEEP for short. A mouthful, but a catchy acronym. We have decided that the best course of action will be to rename the esp to match the mod's updated name. It will remain an ESP file flagged as an ESM as that makes the process of working on it less of a hassle for us and as has been proven, the game, CK, and existing mod management tools are completely fine with it. We have also verified that switching the ESP name will not cause any scripts modified by the project, or added new to the project, to throw Papyrus errors. The only side effect will be that the retroactive update scripts will all run again. That shouldn't cause any problems though and we'll make sure any scripts manipulating formlists are safeguarded against generating duplicate references in them. The hi-res DLC patch will remain a separate entity as many people do not use it for one reason or another and it's not considered part of the "Legendary Edition" of the game either. We estimate the time needed to do the work of merging everything together and then putting it through testing will take a few months. So we are not anticipating another release for the project between now and November while this work is done. Time commitments to other things are the main reason for this, so we figure giving ourselves enough time for that is prudent. Plus this also gives enough warning ahead of time that we're going forward with this. As many existing issues as we could resolve for the 2.1.3 release cycle have now been cleared from the tracker and any issues remaining that are not feasible to fix have been closed appropriately. Any new issues submitted after this point will need to wait until the unification process is complete before we will even begin to consider touching them. Please, DO report them, just don't expect action for awhile. If it should become necessary (God forbid) for a hotfix to be released before the unification is done, then that will be the ONLY issue that will be addressed and will be handled only in whatever patch it may affect. After the unification process is done, the existing separated patches will no longer receive updates. The files will remain up in their existing entries but will be frozen and the comment threads closed where possible. All future support will be handled on a single file entry for the unified project on each site it is hosted on. Mods which rely on using the USKP/UDGP/UHFP/UDBP are strongly urged to make plans to switch over to the new master file when it's ready. Other mods which import fixes from the unofficial patches are also strongly urged to make sure they are up to date before November. It would also be best if any translated versions of the patches out there get synced up with 2.1.3 so that as many people as possible will have access to them while the unification is underway. We will have a testing release at some point before the unified patch is ready to go live. The usual cautions against using beta copies on saves you intend to keep will apply. That step is going to last no less than a full month so that there's time enough to shake out any bugs that result from the process. ======================== Some of you may also be wondering what this means for my own projects that make use of the unofficial patches as masters. These will all be converted as needed to run using the unified patch file. Post-unification, I will not release mods that rely on the individual patch files. So things like Bring Out Your Dead, Cutting Room Floor, Ars Metallica, and other stuff, will all get taken care of on whatever schedule fits best as the process moves along. In the case of Cutting Room Floor, this will also open the door to adding cut DLC content that's been getting logged to the tracker. So it'll be worth it Once I make these transitions, any old copies relying on the old patch files will be frozen.
  23. Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch [USLEEP]

    Barring any unforeseen issues, we'll be going live with this over the coming weekend.
