Thanks for link Fashric. For those of you at work or behind a firewall, I've posted the majority of it here.

It looks like they took note from TESVal and SkyBoost and added optimizations to the compiler this time around.
Quote:
The Creation Kit and Steam Workshop are nearly ready. We’re currently working with members of Valve and our modding community to do some final testing, and we’re on track for a public release near the end of the month. We think Skyrim modding is one of the game’s best features, and we have the best modders of any game. It’s been a lot of exciting work for us, and we can’t wait to unleash it.

Skyrim’s 1.4 update is currently undergoing testing on all three platforms. The update will include fixes and optimizations for the most common issues people have been reporting (see below). We’re hoping to finalize this next week, and submit it to the console manufacturers for certification, as well as release on PC.

Our current update plan for the PC is to first release our updates as “beta” versions through Steam. This is something you’ll be able to opt into through Steam and back-out of if needed. This is an extra safety check for everyone going forward and should expedite and improve our updating process for our PC users. We’ll have more info soon on how this will work.

If you follow him around long enough, you get a quest if memory serves.

I figured as much. Focusing on bookshelves rather than game breaking issue's like too large game save file crashes. Here's to hoping that general performance fixes includes shadows and garbage clean up..

I really hope Improved compiler optimization settings (PC),General optimizations for memory and performance,Memory optimizations related to scripting,Fixed crashes related to pathing and AI = less/no crashing with ugrids of 9. It is really is like crack rock when you start upping the ugrids. Really rethinking my mod useage and taking the advice found here of 1024 for your small items (bugs etc) 2048 for armors and stuffs and 4096 or so for your landscapes or big items. Hopefully DDSOPT works out its issues (although I only had the blood textures one) and the creation kit brings about some optimized mods on top of all that. My second playthrough should be amazing.

Awesome. Fixing the dragon masks. The best one with archmage armour never worked for me.

This should bring a MASSIVE improvement in performance, even over the boost mods (because they use real time translation).

The point is, you ask too much. There are bugs/errors with all software. What exactly is the problem? Is the game not running at enough FPS?
And no amount of patching will fix those errors. The entire game would need to be re-written.

That wasn't directed at you, anyways.

What is the problem? What the hell is your problem? This game didn't even address more than 2gb, and the community fixed it. The devs then added that fix in the next patch. The community then found that the game wasn't even correctly compiled, and fixed it. That fix is being added to the next patch. What the hell is my problem??

What is your problem with my wanting a better product??

Spells that shoot out of your hands, like fireball, should go straight where you aim them.

Say you are strafing directly left. If you cast a spell aiming straight ahead while you are still moving, the spell effect will not go straight, but will continue moving to the left. So if I am strafing my enemy from a moderate distance, aiming directly at him means my shots will drift in the direction I'm strafing by the time it arrives. I was trying to hit a person on a balcony with fireballs while strafing (dead on aim) and missing every single one until I stopped moving when I fired and it would peg him every time.

This brings me much sadness =(
