That's the problem, by the time you got to the other side of the game world to finish a quest, you ended up with ten more along the way. Sad though I have about 8 various broken quests and about 6-7 quest items that are broken, so those are bugging me.

I hear you about the quest collecting. I ended up with five extra ones last night just going from The Mage college to Whiterun.

IDK what to tell ya... just remember to breathe and try and stick to one quest before moving onto the next. smile.gif

I really dont think the devs had OCD in mind when they put this game together, Its addictive at the best of times...

Could you do me a favor? With the new 1.4 patch running, are you able to tell me how your FPS is when you travel to Hag Rock Redoubt and Dead Crone Rock (with all your HD mods active, of course)? rolleyes.gif

I'm level 47 and a half, have done about 330 hours since november, redface.gif playing every day pretty much for several hours at a time, and still have tons more to do. I guess I'm about 2 or 3 times slower compared to others here who seem to get to higher levels in much shorter ingame time, AND have accomplished almost everything in the game. tongue.gif I absolutely love the game and am not bothered how long it takes me to get the point where I've seen almost everything, but what I don't really understand is how other players would play the whole thing again as a new char. Going through all that levelling again, going to all those scores and scores of locations again, going through all the smithing and enchanting again, wouldn't you be totally fed up by the end of the first time through the game since it's so massive? Not to mention that there's no mystery left in a game if you've already experienced all the content? I'm not saying there isn't replay value, but wouldn't you want to move on to a new game by then?

New character = new moves needed... game plays out differently.

Ive never played TES series before, or even an RPG, so I had no clue what my characters where capable of. So I wanted to try each race.

Granted, it can be a bit grindy at times but there is much to learn by playing over again.

How are you only level 47 with 330 hours? I am level 61 with 160.

He does state:
"I guess I'm about 2 or 3 times slower compared to others here who seem to get to higher levels in much shorter ingame time, AND have accomplished almost everything in the game."

My guess is that he explores a lot and does a lot of quests. High playing time does not necessarily equate to high levels. Levels are gained through the progression of skills and traveling/exploring typically does not progress skills nearly as fast as fighting, smithing, and enchanting.

bingo, learn in this order, alchemy, smithing, enchanting, alchemy will give forify smithing & fortify enchanting potions, up your smithing skills, get better armor & weapons out of the deal, then go do the quest for azura's star, no more need for soul gems, those are now just petty cash. smith stacks of jewelry & enchant them, make a weapon with small amount of charges & a dagger with soul trap. charge the weapon after every successful trap & & your now lvling enchanting after almost every kill, depends on if you cleanse azura's star.

So I am waiting to hear if Skyrim HD works, I mostly just want to overhaul the visuals.

Just a note, patches for Bethesda games have never messed up retexture packs compatibility as far as I can remember since Morrowind. When Bethesda updates a game, usually it is within the game engine and the executable not with the folders or renaming files like textures and meshes (they aren't that evil to modders tongue.gif). Things like Skyrim HD will not have any compatibility issues from one patch to the next because they aren't altering the game executable or the game's FormID lists. Now things like SKSE and ScriptDragon are script injectors and likewise WILL have compatibility issues whenever a new patch is created due to the nature of how the scripts are injected into the Skyrim executable. Most of the time it's just a one-two hour fix, but these are the types of mods that will be unusable with a new patch. Other mods that "could" have the possibility of breaking with a new executable or engine are mods that alter the FormID's, mainly any mod with a .ESP file that you alter the Load Order for the game in the Launcher, Mod Manager, Wrye Bash, or Mod Organizer.

So if you were wondering about compatibility and specifically just wanted to overhaul visuals, most if not all the retexture packs (I would say) will be compatible with 1.4 when it releases with no extra downloads. I understand that there may be an exception for textures and meshes that are added to the game, but that's noted in the .ESP comment above.
