    Thanks! The encouragement helps more than you know~
    I was surprised at how similar 3D modeling is to actual like...clay modeling. I have a little bit of experience with that, so it was a matter of learning 3DS Max. ...Which took a long time. Don't be too impressed.

    Question about Skyrim on PS3:

    I just saw that they're releasing the Skyrim DLC's for PS3 in February, did they ever fix the crashing and slow-down issues for the platform?

    I think they fixed a lot of the crashing bugs a long time ago. Last time I played it on ps3 though it was still slowing down in certain areas. This was maybe 4 months ago.

    Hmmm, I haven't played since last February when I got the platinum, and the last few hours of that were pretty excruciating. I might patch it up and see if it's any better as I missed the game but the slow-downs and crashes made it unbearable.

    Thanks for the info.

    Wonder why there hasn't been any thought about visiting Elsweyr or Black Marsh. Seem logical seeing as how the natives are playable races

    They just don't seem to be all that significant in Elder Scrolls lore compared to basically any human race or certain elves. Bathesda needs to get on adding more beast race lore to the game.

    Argonians need to join forces with the orcs and take over the world!

    Argonians are worst off. Khajiit get some lore love especially since they're allied with the Thalmor currently (and one of the few who do so willingly) but nobody really gives a crap about Argonians cause apparently Black Marsh is uninhabitable by normal folk or something.

    Actually they shouldn't. While I like the kahjeet and even argonians well enough, I think they're more of a side attraction. Making a whole game centered on them wouldn't be smart if they want it to sell. I have to admit, I wouldn't buy it if I was new to TES games either unless it got really positive reviews. Oblivion used the great graphics(for the time) as well as the cliche medieval fantasy theme and Skyrim the whole viking and dragons theme for promotions because they're popular. But you have to admit that a game based on humanoid cat people living in a desert doesn't sound too appealing for a newcomer..

    I'd rather have them make Black March and Elsweyr as DLCs or just make a new game focusing on southern areas with a larger map instead of just one province.

    It's about the lore and the setting more than it is about the characters. I don't think anyone got Skyrim on the premise that you'd be playing a human Nord or Oblivion on the premise you'd be playing a human Imperial or Morrowind on the premise that you'd be playing a dark elf.

    The Khajiit are a desert people. The game could be graphically astonishing and pretty dang unique considering how few games seem to focus on a desert landscape. And Khajiit lore is also pretty interesting despite how rare it is.

    But at the end of the day, I'd agree that them moving away from the central ES dogma that is based around man vs. mer wouldn't be all that great.

    P.S. I'm hoping that the next generation consoles will be able to handle open cities and world so we have to deal with less loading screens. PC's are already managing to do it while having a ton shorter loading screens but consoles need to catch up.

    Actually, open cities is kinda meh.. they make almost no difference anyway. Just save you a loading screen which takes less than a second anyway if you're using SSD. But I'd love to have open buildings instead. TES having no windows and instead having these dim little panels you cant look through bothers me a lot as it not only denies the beautiful views but also shop windows or even the practical look inside a house from a window to see if anyones there before breaking in to rob it:P

    Check out the musician bear on steam workshop. Greatest thing EVAR. I'd been seeing it for a long time in videos but never got a hold of the mod until recently.

    Lizbeth, I was talking more about consoles. I think with higher graphics the loading screens are probably going to stay that long. But I definitely agree that having open buildings would be amazing. Just one huge seamless experience with no loading screens. /cakepants.

    It's nice that Bethesda threw some goodwill to the PS3 players. 50% off each DLC for the launch week. I'm just glad they realized how fucked over PS3 players were and I think that is a nice thing to throw in there.

    They always knew they fucked over PS3 players. It was just a matter of fixing what they screwed up.

    It should stay 50% off forever for them and even that wouldn't be right. They effed over PS3 players hard. I'm saying this as a PC player who is more than willing to pay the full price but PS3 players having to wait 6 months for this is ridiculous.

    Yeah, it totally wasn't a problem getting it to work and intentional, they just love losing out on dlc sales from one system...
