    No, I just didn't remember what the vanilla game had.
    I also noticed stuff like "alpha wolf" etc, but wasn't sure whether I'd come across them in vanilla.

    Thats awesome!!!!!


    But when a dragon dies in a few hits with a enchanted glass war hammer after I use a enchanted bow with poison and a potion of fire/frost resist auto mode seems like a waste of time and fun.


    I am enjoying bitch slapping the shit out of anything with a undead/stamina draining combo. Now if only my followers were smart enough to make use of the potions/magic I give them other than in the staffs.

    Hey guys... I just recently re-installed Skyrim and decided to play it again (this time actually complete the game 100%).

    But since starting this morning, there's these strange pixels floating all over my screen, on top of the landscapes, character models, mountains, etc.

    It's like "static" but in the form of pixels.

    I've googled the problem and people seem to be saying that the latest AMD drivers are the issue.

    Is this true?

    I didnt see that with those drivers, but I had some problems with alot of purple textures. Even a couple of weird giand red exclamation marks in front of things that were missing altogether. I took a screenshot, cant find it now...

    You'll lose all the side-quests in Markarth (or any town you decide to butcher) that way.

    Also, you'll get a large bounty. And the guards respawn so you can't really kill everyone. Children can't be killed either.

    Where is the evidence in Markarth to prove that guy is a worshiper? I can't find it anywhere.

    One of the first things I do when playing a new character is hunt down a Thalmor patrol and murder the shit out of them.

    I do the same to the patrols based on their up tight attitude.
    Let them tell me off just for walking pas them, keep on walking, them turn around and shoot all of them with the bow.

    Hmmm, I killed all the guards bar the people inside the Jarl's residence in Falkreath{sp}, and they haven't respawned yet, so maybe the major cities do the respawning.
    I have killed the idiots in Cidnor mine though, lol.

    I killed all the guards outside in whiterun, then piled them up in the frong gate. Got tired of them telling me not to play with fire. Also, I steal the clothes off of every guard that says anything rude. There are a lot of guards in their underpants, lol.

    I dont do it to the ones in falkreath though, because at least 2 dragons spawn there everytime I go and the guards help draw fire.

    I am so tempted to play and finish this game on my laptop, I've been stopping myself from playing the game until I am able to buy a computer again as I've sold my old setup to my brother. The new 1.5 patch and texture mods are not helping gahhhhh been staying away from skyrim related news incase of spoilers as well lol, either way can't enjoy it on my laptop it deserves to be played on a 27" mon with all the graphics and effects cranked up!

    I am going to wait till mid-summer, that should mean at least two more patches (hopefully). Then I'll get some mods, and will start playing - new expierence.

    For people who use mods which require SKSE, there is a beta build 1.4.14 that is compatible with runtime version 1.5.24 of Skyrim. You can get it here

    Finally, made my skyrim look even better. Tweaked my Superl3 ENB settings + RCRN 2.1 + realistic lighting imho near photo realistic quality without much performance hit. :cool: I like my nights and dungeons dark to give it a sense of foreboding and to bring back the use of lighting spells and torches to the gameplay. Here are some pics that really caught my eye.
