    Yup! Totally excited for it! As a PS3 player it's like a whole new game for $22.50

    BTW - you forgot to mention that all three DLCs for PS3 will be 50% off their first week of release. First to be released is Dragonborn, then Hearthfire and Dawnguard sometime after that.

    I honestly didn't expect to see HF and DG at all via their wording of the DB for PS3 announcement... but here they come a few weeks AFTER Dragonborn! I'm so glad I stockpiled all those iron ingots now for Hearthfire! :P
    Isn't it immature that you call him Donald "Dump"?
    I agree, it's childish and stupid - and that's my point. it's meant as a deliberate mockery of his blatant disrespect via using "Crooked Hillary", and thus I can call him "Dump" since he dumps his campaign promises, dumps campaign managers, dumps his wives, wants to dump the first amendment, dumps common-sense war ethics and dumps the use of proper English in favor of a mongrel white-trash dialect.

    Awesome! By the way, next DLC should be called Redguard and take us to Hammerfell. And no, Im not going to post any links to confirm it, just google "skyrim redguard dlc":P It's not 100% official yet but more like 9 out of 10. It's either that or a entirely new game called "redguard" which is doubtful.

    I'm seriously doubting that rumor...

    All it is was the press taking an old trademark of Bethesda (one that was made BEFORE Skyrim even launched) and inventing a rumor around it - JUST to keep some Skyrim news spin going in a drought of any Video Game news.

    Well if it's in Hammerfell I hope that means we join them in fighting the Thalmor!

    Hearthfire is ok but it's not that great to be honest. I don't regret buying it though, just wish they added more options and building styles.. or at least a fence and a few guards to keep all the bears and dragons off and keep them from killing my horses and other animals.

    Isn't "Redguard" an old TES game for ehhh some other console?

    Found it; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eld...ures:_Redguard

    I sort of believe it. It comes from the same people who predicted Dawnguard and Dragonborn correctly, they also reserved the brandname recently like prior to other DLCs, then there's the road that leads to Hammerfell near Riften and a lot of other things.

    Well if it really is this "Redguard" DLC, then finally - a DLC which actually seems important, and not just silly vampires or other silly dragonborn - back to the main story thank you!

    Well, the main story is killing Alduin and it's over already, the rest are all side stories or long term thing. Civil war and the Thalmor have really nothing to do with the Dragonborn unless they reveal something we dont know yet.

    No they did not... no one set of "people" predicted those. EVERYBODY predicted Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn correctly because all three were trademarked shortly after Skyrim's release.

    PS. Riften's road leads to Morrowind, not Hammerfell. The road to Hammerfell you're looking for is actually by Falkreath. :P

    Seriously. They NEED to address the Thalmor issue more in Skyrim. Adding in the one region that's managed to successfully fend off the Thalmor SOLO makes a lot of sense.

    I was hoping that with the Dragonborn's help we'd be able to oust the Thalmor from Skyrim (which would seem more in line with helping the Stormcloaks since the Empire still honors the concordat) and ally with Hammerfell.

    In the grand scheme of things, the return of the Dragons is actually a smaller concern than the war between man and mer.

    True, but honestly - that seemed so... Urgh I don't know - secondary really, when compared to the real conflict, being the whole Empire/Stormcloak/Thalmor thing, the fact that assassination the emperor had no effect was utterly shocking to me, and just reeked of bad story telling.

    Oops, yea, I meant the one near Falkreath. I guess we'll see shortly if it's true or not anyway.

    That's a big fat NOPE.

    The war wouldn't mean squat if the dragonborn hadn't stopped Alduin.

    I haven't finished the main story yet but I think Alduin was actually supposed to bring the end of the world so some little war is hardly more important than that.

  17. #6677
    I meant in how lengthy it is. Yes Alduin was significant but the mer vs. man thing's been going on for thousands of years and is coming to a head right now especially since the Thalmor have gotten control of so many towers. The Thalmor are also attempting to and capable of bringing about the end of the current reality.

    The sense of scope and conflict has always been poorly represented in TES games. In each game everyone will cslmly go about their business despite whatever major conflict or crisis is going on. You drive the plot and very little happens when you aren't around.

    In Skyrim alone I am just baffled at stuff like Thalmor hit squads being sent after you but none of the static Thalmor NPCs knowing or caring who you are. Plus the changing of leadership in the holds based on which side you support in the war has so little effect on anything it's frustrating.

    And then there's how underwhelming the final battle with Alduin is...

    Funny enough, even if I try my darndest to create a sneaky Vampire like character I always end up in full plate with a sword and shield. There's just something about being a tank in Skyrim that I really, truly enjoy.

    On that note, perhaps I can share an armor mod I'm working on myself. It's a heavy WIP and is inspired from Chris Lightfellow's armor in Suikoden III. I've been working on it on and off for the last 5 months, since I'm a novice to modding and stuff. I'm also a little embarrassed to share this as it's really not in a pretty state right now. I'm having a realllllllly hard time understanding how to properly apply weights to the mesh, so a lot of the vertices in the armor (mainly in the skirt) are being weighed to the wrong bone! This results, most notably, in "spikes" in the skirt and pauldrons, not very pretty. I'm also using placeholder textures (the skirt in particular is using I think the steel armor CUIRASS texture lol) until I find out how to fix this...



    As you can see, the mesh itself looks fine but in-game there are tons and tons of issues. This probably isn't the right place to ask, but does anyone have experience with weighting, or texture design? I could use some help in both areas. I'd never even modeled before until Skyrim inspired me to.

    Shit, really? One of the finest first attempts I've ever seen. Keep it up. You will go places.

    Wish I could help...
