    Daedric armor is unlocked at 90 not 100. 100 is Dragon.

    And for the Skyrim wars that sounds fun, but I would be to worried that a important NPC may get killed in the middle of a random battle and messing up a quest.

    Also can we get the CK yet!? I want to mod stuff!!!

    Its under downloads. It has the highest spawning rate.

    So far with skyrim wars, I mostly have just seen a lot of trolls. But I will definitely be doing a lot less fast traveling. Before this, I could run from falkreath to riften, and see 8-10 wolves and maybe a saber-cat. Now you see animals and bandits and atronachs and spriggans and trolls and everything else. (I've come to the conclusion that spriggans are pure evil. They kill me alot)

    Wow that is a massive update! Thats awesome.

    Crazy what does some of that compiler and memory stuff mean exactly? Are they going to be updating the game to somelike like what skyboost does? Offload the CPU and what not for better performance?

    Also what exactly is the creation kit? will it mess up some of the mods that are already out? or will it enhance it?

    that wont happen sadly it requires a complete rewrite of game engine code,

    look at morrowind they added dynamic shadows etc but it took nearly 8 years to make it happen, sadly we wont see proper shadows untill Bethesda get off there ass and use a new engine not just a renamed one

    Sorry to break up the conversation but I need help.

    I am currently on the mission "Diplomatic Immunity".
    I had done all the steps and I am now inside the embassy but Malborn isn't showing up. I've checked the map and he's very far away but moving very slowly. I have tried using "wait" but the game wont let me at this part. So how do I fix this?

    Yeah. I didn't make that very clear :eek:

    He was inside waiting behind the counter when I got to the embassy, but ignored me. I didn't know what to do, because everyone was ignoring me. Killing everyone is not the way to fix it though...:eek:

    You have to make a distraction so that you won't be noticed talking with him and "disappearing" afterward.

    Good stats, but that glass armor looks like ass! I prefer the normal green/blue armor. :D If there was a silver/pearl kind of mod for glass, I would probably fap myself to death.

    Hey people, has anyone made a motion blur mod yet? Just finished playing Crysis, Hard Reset etc for a week and Skyrim almost gives me a headache!

    Motion blur mod?
    I thought that's what radial blur was for although I rarely see it in game.

    You never move fast enough that anything should blur.

    I thought it may have been encorporated in to some of the spell effects.

    The only time I seem to find radial blur in effects is when I am looking at something in the inventory & falling I think.

    Hm....It may also happen with Whirlwind shout.
