I hope this helps.

I appreciate the help. I might run DDSOpt on my textures and downgrade the main landscape textures or something.

Hi guys.

I have a quick question about Skyrim.
Right now im a Companion but what happens if I join the stormcloaks?
I did the quest where you have to go FAR to the north and kill an IceWrathe.
I came back and now Ulfric wants me to take a vow of some sort.
Can I be a stormcloak and also a companion and later if I want something else like an empirial. The one that base themselves out of Solitude?
Anyway I just want to know if I can jump between them or do I have to choose just one?

Thanks
Happy time PC.

Companions don't interfere with Stormcloaks, so you can be both. However, if you're a Stormcloak, you cannot be an Imperial as well.

The only two things that I know of that conflict:

Vampires / Werewolves (can only be one or the other)
Imperials / Stormcloaks (can only be one or the other)

Everything else, you can be in.

Lifeshield gave me a tutorial on it. All credit goes to him/her. Make sure you start w/ a clean Skyrim install.

1) You need a new folder and Fallout Mod Manager. Just Google it.
2) Install FOMM and open it.
3) Click on Tools, then BSA Browser.
4) Click Open and find the High Res Pack Part 1 (something like that).
5) Open them and click Extract All.
6) Direct it into the new folder.
7) Do the same for Parts 2 and 3.
8) Copy the extract files and paste into the Skyrim Data folder to overwrite everything.
9) Delete or move the High Res BSAs from the Skyrim Data folder.
10) Install the mods you wish to install.


I just found out BSA are loaded before loose files. This means the official HD files you use are overwritten by the textures you install. Just put the HD files near the Skyrim.esm in your load order and you should be good to go.

Ulfric is awesome. To hell with the Empire!

I'm almost always a Stormcloak if i ever decide to get involved in the civil war - i can never get over the fact that the Imperials would've had my head at helgen if it weren't for Alduin's interruption (Really, i can't forgive someone if they would've had me dead). Plus Ulfric is just a more interesting character than Tullius.


Srsly though, i never really encountered any real racism in this game, which was somewhat disappointing considering the nature of the civil war. I was expecting Ulfric to be a "real" racist by possibly denying anyone stormcloak status unless they were a nord. Alas, not true. I guess that would've been far too controversial to have in the game. Pity that (Although The Witcher got away with it just fine). It definitely would've made the side choice more interesting; Side with the 'Cloaks, but the leader's a big racist, or side with the Imperials, who aren't but would've killed you for no reason.

Can't make great games unless you take risks. Controversy aint necessarily a bad thing.

Ironic really i can become a Stormcloak as a Dark Elf. One of the many little things in Skyrim that bug me.

Hey guys, I've just posted up a character creation guide for Morrowind, and I would appreciate if y'all checked it out.

Thanks

I actually hate the Stormcloaks. I prefer the Empire. Yes, an Imperial Captain wanted me dead, but fate intervened in that. I'd rather not let the actions of one individual skew my view of an entire power. Anyway, Ulfric seems more interested in power than anything else. The banning of Talos was just an excuse for Ulfric to usurp the throne IMO. And it seems as though he wouldn't be doing much good when he gains power. The Stormcloak revolt might spark revolts throughout the Empire, making lands battlegrounds and chaotic. His hold and those who support him are a dump (Riften is full of thieves and Windhelm is segregated). I can't see him being a fit ruler, and I doubt he's capable of taking on the Aldmeri Dominion.

I view it as "Side with the Stormcloaks and support a power-hungry Nord who'll allow you to worship Talos again (if you're a Nord)" or "Side with the Empire and help support a weakening power keeping Elven supremacy from reaching Skyrim."

The arguments can go back and forth, so to each his own.

I uninstalled even more mods and DDSopted my textures and dropped my MSAA to 2x with SMAA.

Ram usage hits 2600mb but I still get purple and black textures

EDIT: Tried without MSAA and reduced my video ram usage even more. Someone told me on the nexus it has to do with Skyrim hitting the 4gb limit because its 32 bit. But I never saw Skyrim go over 3gb in the task manager.

I am sad.
