    Radial Menus don't work for complex games, Crysis, yes, that works fine. D&D the arcade game...a little harder, but an Elder scrolls game? Do you hate your customers? Why not make it a Kinect, the screws are already on their nuts, the thumbs won't be any worse?

    I kid, I kid. Hell, they probably have the radial menu as a way to get into the larger, broader catagories and act as a way to switch from one to the other. This would prove useful as we will no longer have to click through several menus to get to the one we want.

    Goddammit. It's not even just that it sounds bad. It's that it sounds bad and exceedingly hard to mod into being not bad.

    Could be worse, they could pull a DA2 and have no mods at all (possibly). Of course, I don't know if they've said word 1 about modding Skyrim. Everyone just assumes I'm sure, but someone can make me happy and confirm it.

    The mod tools are being bundled with the game. This was confirmed a few days ago.

    http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/rpg/elderscrollsvskyrim/news.html?sid=6286630

    It was all over the interwebs. :P

    Thanks, I must have used my leet skillz to miss it like I did the DNF release date for a week...
    Also, Bioware have said that they're not releasing a new toolset, but they are updating the Origins toolset to support DA2. That game will still be moddable.

    I don't want to derail this thread, but are you sure of that? They said they may do that, but since then nothing. Again, if someone can update me with better news I'd be happy.

    I do wonder if we'll be able to level up with a battery weighing down the key in Skyrim, though. I need to look more into the leveling system since it sounded like the old one mainly even though they were saying it was new...

    Even easier: let you lockpick them instead of having a dedicated bracer key

    Holy shit training skills in Daggerfall is time consuming. Also, why do the guards get alerted to my "vagrancy" when I sleep in the Thieves' Guild? Who is ratting out the location of the Guild when I fall asleep there, just because they don't like me sleeping in the attic?

    They have crime radar to some degree.

    When Daggerfall was released, you couldn't sleep in your house, for it was in a town. The guards would bash down your door(s) and hack you to pieces if you tried to resist arrest.

    Remember: Daggerfall is buggy as hell, mostly broken, but if you can fight through those, you will have a ton of fun.

    In Morrowind, I used to name my character "Jiub" (the prisoner guy who you meet at the start of every playthrough), make my Dark Elf look exactly like him, and then take off my shoes and shirt. I was his twin brother, doing good deeds in Morrowind in the name of Jiub!

    Then, there was the time I was bandit serial killer Jiub.

    Anyone else wonder if Mai'q the Liar will be in SKYRIM? He certainly does get around alot.
    How many voice actors will be for this game? 20? 30? 40? 70? Oh wait knowing Bethesda it'd just be a small handful instead of a company like Rockstar, their GTA third person polygonal series, which has dozens of various actors.
    It's what killed the immersion in OBRIVION.
    Oh that slave key? I thought it was on the slavers or in the house. Had to pickpocket it or swipe it.
    Still working on the mod usage for MORROWIND to keep the game the same but have it look nicer.

    You want one of the several different Twin Lamps mods, all of which expand Morrowind's anti-slavery faction in some way and should allow you to free every slave in the game. Telesphoros' List o'Mods has two versions, and this discussion mentions several more.

    As for Oblivion inventory crappiness, get WZ_Inventory.

    Surely you jest. I meant from GTA III era onwards. The ones which are 3D and not overhead like 1, London 1969/1961, 2, Advance and Chinatown Wars.
    Got me a nice boat for OBRIVION. Haven't implemented it into the Data folder yet nor run the game. Been looking for lots of mods for MORROWIND.
    My character is damn fast when he runs. Almost as fast as THE FLASH. Is there a constant effect spell for walking/traversing on water? Would be nice for lightning attacks and great punchy punchy fisticuffs. Yes I'd love to make a Scarlet Speedster glass armour mod which would have the acrobatics/etc. stuff. Green would be converted to Scarlet and the black would be converted to brushed gold. Of course would do a jagged lightning bolt on the chest and the ear things. Not immediate in inventory but an entire quest. Would be for human-types only for MORROWIND. Shit is awesome but you have to look ahead where you're going. Used the console for cheats. Depending on speed, are there any blurring/streaking/denotions of speed mods? Guess the gauntlets would increase heavily lightning and hand-to-hand combat.
    The above would be great for OBLIVION but it would surely tax the graphics card and loading times. Wait I do have the MORROWIND Construction Set. Any helpful suggestions to go about doing this? Actually was running so fast it made the game crash to desktop.

    Weird. I am showing as having over 100,000 gold coins in my inventory but I don't have enough to deposit even 1 in the bank. Save, quit, restore. I can put 1 gold coin in, but no more. Save, quit, restore. Same deal.

    I think this is one case where I'll excuse myself for hacking my save file.

    Go to the bank, gold has weight. You might simply be over-encumbered with your loot.

    Yeah, it works, but it has some weird quirks, like storing everything virtually or something. I seriously can't find the save game files anywhere on my hard drive.

    So unless I spend a bunch of time copying and pasting in DOSBox, my save is screwed. I'll just start from a way earlier save.

    Training is boring. But it seems to be the fastest way to increase things like lockpick and pickpocket.
