    Open Creation Kit and load (at least) Skyrim.esm
    In the Object Window select Actor (it will display all actors in right pane)
    Scroll down in right pane to HousecarlWhiterun
    Select it (single click) then right click and choose "edit".
    Check the Preview checkbox if you want to see the image of the actor.

    So are you saying you don't like scripting, Crazy? :laugh:

    Scripting seems pretty straight forward.

    So Crazy, if I send you a model you'll map it for me?

    yea if you send me an OBJ file i can uv map it, and texture it if i dont despise the model. Im picky, I can also model stuff as well,

    Just be warned i havent worked out out the quirks yet, examples i cant get blood FX to work on weapons currently so no blood on weapons in game, also cant get the model to show up in inventory aka its there by name, but the mesh dosent show, but once equipped works fine lol

    @crazyeyes: I'm liking your insane dragon bone smasher. I upgraded it, and as legendary it does 84 damage, with no two handed perks. so, without any enchantment but all the two handed perks it should be able to do like 170? thats cool. It weighs 45, but what the heck my carry weight is over 600.

    I still use a deadric sword mostly, but its fun to send stuff flying, lol

    my character with Max Perks etc, the weapon did 188 damage, before i upgraded it, legendary should push it above 200 ;)

    and its suppose to be heavy the weapon is essentially a giant solid chunk of Iron with Dragon Bone thrown in, (in demon souls its just solid iron) but i figured with dragon bone tossed in the weapon cant be used till late game, which is wear it belongs.

    If the Damage is to high for your selected difficulty it can be easily changed by loading the Construction set selecting Skyrim.esm and Dragonbone Smasher.esp set the esp to active then load the data do a search for CZER in the weapon category, from there double click and under damage, just input the value you want.

    24 = Deadric
    50 = Dragonbone smasher
    for those on easy difficult 32-35 would be ideal
    those on normal 35-38
    hard 38-42
    Max difficult 42-50

    That is one seriously badass weapon Crazyeyes. I think it should weigh a lot more though, it is massive.

    most people dont have large carry weight i went with something thats usable its still the heaviest weapon in game by around 8 units,

    mine is custom, my weapon speed is even lower .4 vs default .55 and Damage is 60 instead of 50 with a weight of 50 units,

    Just found this mod on Steam Workshop: Stones of Barenziah Quest Markers

    Installing it precisely for the reason the modder made it:

    i hope the DLC also kicks up the radiant quests adding more meat to them. making the randomly generated quests more detailed and more random would really help with replay value.



    not to mention some more spell improvements, destruction is powerful but really dull and unvaried.

    Don't expect large mods from the community for awhile as the CK is badly borked for new outdoor areas (in ESPs) and the serious modders are having to jump through hoops with 3rd party tools to get things to work right. Small to medium new content in the existing world seems to work okay.

    Bethesda says in the forums they will be working on fixing the CK for both modders and the devs (because they can't use the broken portions either). We will see.

    @Crazy, I have a n00b modelling question for you ...
    When you are working in a modelling program (Blender, Maya, etc.), how do you know what size to make your model? How do you correlate game size to modelling unit size?

    Skyrim cloud saves now available via Steam

    Bethesda announced today that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for PC now has cloud saving available via Steam.

    Skyrim PC players can sync and access their PC saves anywhere using Steam's Cloud Saving service.

    While Cloud Saving is nothing new for Steam, it is the first time Skyrim has it available since its launch back in November 2011.
