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 wouldn't call this an argument tongue.gif (When the namecalling starts, that's when it is! You filthy imperial sympathizer! tongue.gif)

I see your points, but way i see it; that ones orders (Tullius) influence the actions of many (the imperial army) if at his order my head was to be taken, they'd all do it. All the more reason to oppose them - thats just my view. Selfish? definitely, but you gotta be if you don't wanna wind up dead tongue.gif. Not much of a believer in fate either, just flukes and consequences (even though this is a game and it's scripted tongue.gif)

In fact i've yet to fully finish the Imperial side of the civil war. My heart just wasn't in it like when i was a Stormcloak. The first time i played and my head was on that chopping block i knew i'd always be more of a Stormcloak guy - as i would be Imperial if it was the 'cloaks giving the order.

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.

You could try and re-enable Archive invalidation. (Check in NMM for that)

Well, i'd sooner live in or near dirty ghetto's then not live at all tongue.gif

This is why i quite like TES games, they generally try not to make choices so clear cut (Ie; good/evil, etc, etc) Anyone with a bit of life experience knows life just isn't black and white like that. Games that do this i often find patronizing. Although TBH, i feel the previous TES games accomplished it better than what Skyrim has done. (Referencing that "Skyrim: The Dumbing Down" video i posted a few pages back)

And again, this controversy just makes it an overall deeper gaming experience.

I found this to be perhaps the most useful tool next to Nexus Mod Manager and TES5Edit when it comes to Skyrim: http://skyrimcalculator.com/

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.

You lost me D: redface.giftongue.gif

another question...I formatted my HDD when Skyrim was installed...before that I unsubscribed for all the steam shop mods...and deleted some of Nexus, like better females, hair, etc.

If I install again (clean install, actually I will install Steam from zero in another HDD) skyrim....it will automatically download all the mods I use before ?? or it will be installed as "stock" ??

Oh...okay.
Weirdo.

I'll hopefully be getting Dragonborn tomorrow. The map size looks nice for a DLC, and I'm sure content will justify $20.

Dragonborn is certainly worth it. Skyrim DLCs are the best I've seen, they add so much more content. Dawnguard for example took me 50 hours to finish the first time (main missions, side quests, new locations), and about 35 the second time when I joined the vamps instead of Dawnguard. That's 85 hours right there.

Dragonborn's main quest is shorter, but has more side quests and more importantly, an entire new island to explore that's quite large and has some very impressive places. I've made two characters for each DLC.

Usually, DLCs are worthless junk and should be no more than $5. But Skyrim is a definite exception just like Fallout 3/New Vegas.
