Instead of losing skills like in previous TES games you only lose the progress you've made towards the next skill level. That's how I think it works anyway. I've never been incarcerated.

That one is for gold. Not sure what you mean by stuff though.

"If you choose to serve your time, you spend 1 day in prison for every 100 gold of your bounty. For each day you spend in prison, one of your skills will degrade (the skills that are affected are chosen randomly; you could lose a single point from several skills, several points from a single skill, or a combination of the two); randomly, Sneak or Security skills may be chosen, and will raise instead. You can't lose (or gain, in the case of Security and Sneak) more than 10 skill points in a single jail sentence." - From Elder Scrolls Wiki for Skyrim

I was just thinking about something that would improve this game 100 times for me. I haven't played WoW in over 3 years, but that interface was one of the best ever for managing your buffs, spells, pots, heals etc... One of my problem (playing a mage anyway) in Skyrim/Oblivion is that all I can do is "favorite" my spells and then when I get in a combat situation I have to fumble through my list of 100 favorites spells/pots/racial abilities making me just about the most useless adventurer EVAR. What this actually does is dumb the game down for me to the point where I only want to use 2 or 3 things over and over again because I have no idea how to manage my abilities.

Anyone else feel this way? Is there any type of UI mod that mimics WoW or other MMORPG's so that you have a constant view of all of your options? There were also so many WoW interface mods that were good. This would be awesome for me. Maybe it wouldn't work as well in a first person vs. isometric game like WoW, but I need help and the default Skyrim way of doing mage battle and management is useless.

Yea, the live casting and equipping could be a lot better and they only need look at mmorpgs for example. Shortcut button bar overlay and really a wide one at...

Just open it up, go to the mod, deactivate it, then download and activate the new one.

Thank you.
Also i don't seem to have much info in my skyrimpref.ini in my docs or game dir.
The water mod says to change iWaterReflectHeight to 1024...i don't have that line of code.

http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=711
Quote:
Recommended Tweaks:
-Force 16x anisotropic filtering through your drivers whether you have ATI or Nvidia for more detailed water at long distances. Strongly recommended.
-Set iWaterReflectHeight and iWaterReflectWidth to at least 1024 in SkyrimPrefs.ini under [Water] for less pixelated reflections.

Edit:
Fixed!

In the mod manager on the installed mod screen, look towards the versions number row. You should see a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the center, click on it. A web browser window should open to the skyrim nexus page for the mod. Select "downloads" and then "download with manager." It will start to download in the manager. Now, go back the your installed mod list in the mod manager and double click the 1.7 version of the mod, and it will automatically deactivate the mod. Once your download is complete, the new version will in the installed mod list. Double click it to activate it, and confirm the new files overwrites when prompted. Good luck.

Thanks OC, TLF, I was wondering why my archery skill was taking a beating, they just don't tell you what's going on like in Oblivion lol.rolleyes.gif

Edit: Not only could the interface have been better in Skyrim, but the exploration is almost patronizing. I'm sure Bethesda listened to the fans who wanted more content, but seriously there are caves, ruins, or tombs every 20 seconds. Whoring out locations takes away from the fun of exploring, not to mention the guilt from not wanting to stop and loot.
