    I've tried Frostfall but didn't really find it to my liking. Even after configuring it I thought my character got cold a bit too fast and it felt more annoying than immersive.

    One realism mod I do use is Basic Needs which adds hunger, thirst and tiredness. They will accumulate as debuffs over time but won't flat out kill you.

    I might want to do a reinstall to Skyrim now. I have tons of mods (around 50 separate mods) and the game is finally getting a bit broken with flickering textures and a lightning mod or "ENB Injector" which is definitely not working properly. In sunny daytime and dungeons (or other dark locations) it is fine and effects are pretty but when it's dark outside or "snowy weather" both lightning mod and ENB Injector seem to be disabled completely. It looks like there's no lightning going on at all in the game engine.

    Probably an always sunny weather mod would fix it.

    Or I could just wait for Dawnguard to be out for PC, it probably requires a whole lot of new mods.

    By far the best mod for Skyrim - in my opinion.
    I'm somewhat interested in SkyRe, but it states its best done with a new character. Not sure I want to start over though. Will it work with an established character? She's only level 11, but still . . . I have my first house and I'm far enough on the main quest for dragons to spawn everywhere by now.

    It changes the perk trees a fair bit; so it's quite likely stuff will get mucked up if you don't start a new game.

    No, but you do get the ability to blot out the sun for a period of time (I've only seen the action performed, can't speak to how long the sun stays blotted out) at the end, regardless of whether or not you side with them.

    Hey, if you're on the Vampire side in Skyrim: Dawnguard, have you found a Vampire Hood yet? I'm going crazy looking for this damned thing, I found a lot on the Dawnguard side but now I'm farming Broken Fang Cave searching for one.

    So I decided to get Skyrim for the PC and I've been having a few issues.

    I have the shadows settings to the lowest and I've tried turning off all the mods but there's flicker over random buildings. Like everything becomes unrendered every time I'm turning to look at something else every milisecond or something. I turned off anti aliasing and antiscropic lighting. I'm running on high settings. Current video card is 1024 MB nvidia gts 240 (weak card I know but I've seen people be able to run the game smoothly on high settings on it). 8 GB ram, 2.8 ghz intel quad core i7.

    Super newb question but I can't find the install folder for Skyrim. I downloaded it through Steam and it automatically went into my "games" folder. The Skyrim folder in there only has two unreadable flies. I've been trying to download mods through skyrimnexus but can't because I can't put the files into the source folder. If anyone could help it'd be much appreciated. Oh and mods from the Steam workshop seem to work fine.

    The path to your Skyrim folder should be C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

    Or C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim, depending. Point being, its in that path I mentioned starting in your steam folder.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Any idea on what might be going on with my graphic settings?

    Sadly, no idea. Sounds familiar to when I had a less than optimal graphics card, but I might just be remembering it wrong. When in doubt, reduce graphic quality. If it keeps happening even at lower qualities, it might be the game simply weirding out.

    Turns out it was something with the new video card drivers. I went to the previous version and everything was fixed. Not only that, I've been able to run the game at even higher settings without FPS drops with graphical improvement mods.

    From what i hear the crossbow won't have a pullback like the bow does for increased damage but the reloading will take longer. They'd basically be on par and upto user preference.

There seemed to be lag issues when doing the wayshrine part of the quest. All in all I feel like it wasn't worth the money and I'm unlikely to buy another DLC for skyrim. Beth really needs to update their engine and smooth things out for the next elder scroll to even be considered as something I'd buy. Don't get me wrong, I love the story and adventure but it's just going downhill for me.
    I haven't played most of the DLC, as it's on my brother's XBox and my copy of Skyrim is on the PC, but if Vampire Lord perks are inaccessible to you at 81 then that's a glitch. If not, you didn't pay attention to the rules of being a Vampire Lord; you earn perks exclusively for Vampire Lord by killing enemies with your Vampiric Abilities — same with Lycanthropy.
    Mage T13 is alright, I guess. It's a bit bland and doesn't really say Mage but there is nothing that looks really bad about it...

    Except that it as a clockwork, orange set.

    Anyone have a theory for where ES:VI will take place?

    I have one, but my knowledge of the ES universe lore isn't the best (it's decent, but nothing compared to the WoW universe lore).

    Right. It's meant to be accessible to everybody regardless of your level. The only time you wouldn't be able to get anything out of the DLC is when you're under level 10 and unable to start it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing it take place in a combination of Elseweyr and Valenwood. There's a mod for Oblivion that adds in the province of Elseweyr, though there wasn't much in it to do other than explore as far as I could tell. Blackmarsh and High Rock could be interesting, though I'm not sure if there would be enough land there to keep up with the expectations that Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim set up.

    I have a theory, and I think the province has so much possibility right now that I honestly believe Bethesda would be foolish not to set the game there.

    Elder Scrolls VI: Alinor/Dominion

    Set in Summerset Isles, or Alinor as the Thalmor have named it, only a few years after Skyrim.

    And here are some supporting reasons (I used to have a better list, I just can't find it)

    1. The Aldmeri Dominion and the Thalmor received too much build up to be addressed in Skyrim DLC alone
    2. Summerset Isles is almost entirely unknown, and even with Elder Scrolls Online, a lot can happen in a few hundred years (if ESO is even canon, which I doubt), and this leaves them a fairly blank slate
    3. The Thalmor are already involved in many shady deals and could easily be at the heart of a crisis equal to the Daedric Invasion or Alduin.
    4. Even with how little we know about it, Summerset Isles could easily meet any requirement for types of dungeons:
    • Caves, Mines, and Bandit Camps are a given
    • Aldmer Ruins
    • Sload Ruins
    • Wizard Towers a plenty (on a related note, good tower dungeons were sadly missing Skyrim)
    • Maormer Camps/Caves/Forts/What-have-you
    5. A more 'High-Fantasy' setting than Skyrim or Oblivion, allowing it to be even more visually interesting.
    6. The Psijic Order of Artaeum could act as the Mages Guild, a counterpoint to the Mages Guild, or even a faction similar to the Blades (both Skyrim and Oblivion) in relation to the Main Quest.
    7. Since we know the Thalmor constantly do purges of dissidents in the dominion (and occasionally outside the Dominion) we know we have plenty of room for warring factions (either two different rebel groups, or the ability to join the Thalmor (if they aren't the main villains))

    I swear the old one was ~12 points long.
    And as a point to address the issue that is always raised about this: most High Elves are not the assholes they're made out to be. The Thalmor are, but look at Sinderion, Legate Fasendil, Nurelion, Calcelmo, Taarie, Niranye, etc..., the majority are no different than anyone else.
    Mage T13 is alright, I guess. It's a bit bland and doesn't really say Mage but there is nothing that looks really bad about it...

    Hopefully the next game focuses on one of the non-human provinces as they strike me as the most elaborate and intriguing, both visually and in terms of their lore. Seeing two human provinces in a row bugged me a little, but at least it means the Imperials and Nords are largely done with for now and when we finally visit the other races, technology may have advanced to allow and even larger game than what we've seen so far.

    Alternatively, playing from the perspective of the Thalmor could be pretty interesting. I like them a lot, since elves that persist as a threat to humanity are very rare in today's fantasy settings.

    Found this mod last night, Yet to try it out due me deleting my characters to start over with mods and dawngaurd once its released. But it seems to be really good and adds a completly new style of play.
