    Lol ... sorry about that, I'll send you a new one if you want.

    Oddly enough, many of the moderator names blend nicely with the races/classes of Skyrim.
    I wonder if it's possible to make talking food for Chicken Patty. :roll:

    Just have it so that the NPC contestants have already completed whatever it is they need to do and you have to beat whatever they did. Or you could have the contest involve fighting.

    I say just give the player and a handful of NPCs Wabberjacks and no armor, then toss them all in a room full of daedra. Last man standing wins a banhammer.
    Do it!
    Dooo eeett!

    Not yet. I'm planning to have the hubby spray a part of it a cool metallic dark blue...

    ______________

    I did experiment for some minutes using the CK. I'm trying to make a kid with an original face and which doesn't look like it's got the same father whether born in Whiterun, Windhelm or Markarth....

    No success so far..

    Can someone make a troll with a postal workers hat on it? Make him impossible to kill. Just like knock him out and a few minutes later hes back walking around. He doesnt even have to attack anything. Just follow you real close.

    Dude the CK is supposedly not very hard while you may not have a modeling app or whatever at present you're in a much better position than like anyone here I can think of besides crazyeseyes to make such things for yourself...

    I have never had this problem even in extended sessions that are 5 hours+ so I doubt it would be the game, I am always at 60 FPS so any drops like that would definitely be noticed.

    Its the game. I ctrl, alt, del and cancel like BP said and it fixes the issue. She had/has the same problem.

    I have no clue to even where to begin man.

    it can be done mailman you simply need someone to edit the trolls nif file to have said hat on it, something i cant do because well, bethesdas tools and nifskope are pretty ass backwards.

    case in point it can be done.

    Since the children are not a playable race, I don't know if you could easily do that without new models and/or textures. I haven't looked into it though.

    I have no idea how to add art assets to Skyrim. Crazy is the only person I've seen on this forum who has done that.
    I would think you could add a "helmet" object (in this case a hat), but there is a lot more to that than one would assume.
    (Like how to get a troll (a non-playable race) to wear it)

    he has to export the troll file from the meshes which i can do, then add the hat to the troll mesh, edit the troll texture to include troll hat, then create a duplicate troll in the CK, which gets pointed to said edited troll mesh, its getting a hat on the troll mesh etc to work, I use Autodesk Maya i can edit weapons etc but anything that has to be weight painted rigged etc to work in skyrim doesnt like Maya at all and the plugins are all half assed to an extreme. Theres not alot I can do i know the process just not the required tools, its why i dont put my own armor designs into the game.

    A question was asked on the Bethesda forums about the devs at Bethsoft actually using the CK as we know it. This was posted by Joel Burgess, one of the level designers at BGS ...
    Very interesting ...

    Is this a new "official patch"? Some of the above items were fixed in the betas.
    I don't show any new downloads from Steam.

    What's the new exe revision? My Steam shows nothing.
    Maybe Steam saw what I want to do with a mod here on TPU and banned me from updates. lol

    My TesV.exe still shows 1.4.27.0

    Last beta was "27" as I had to get the latest SKSE to work with it.
    Maybe if you had the beta no update occurred.

    That could be it, that they just decided the beta was stable enough (in regards to not introducing new bugs) and re-released it as official.

    I did a little digging and found this in the update code for Steam ...

    Code:
    If (loadedVersion != latest Version)
    {
       if (steamUser == "Kreij") terminateWithExtremePrejudice();
       else updateNormally();
    }
    
    I'm getting a little paranoid. :eek:

    Ive encountered the unresponsive controls at the Enchanter. Couple times. Triggered by accidentally my mouse wheel into 3rd person view. Was bizarre.

    Seems like there were a few issues with the enchanter, Wrig. Hopefully the patch will take care of that for you. I never saw the issue, but I haven't used the enchanters a lot so far (at least not while doing movement or anything else with the mouse).
