    Here's a mod that adds more mounts. I don't know if that will let you ride sabrecats (I don't currently have it running because my PC needs more help nowadays), but I know this will let you ride them (it also adds a bunch of crap). So somebody send me a screen of a dual-wielder riding a sabrecat into battle, please.

    doi NPCs do horse combat as well? have yet to get the beta patch as it might ruin things again (forced AO in nvidia for example)

    Stuttering Problem (fps high - VMEM not saturated)

    - fully updated
    - 1920X1080 59Hz
    - I7 920@4GHz
    - 4GB DDR3 1600
    - HD6950@6970 950/1350
    - Windows 7 64bit

    outside - 40-60 fps (stuttering)
    inside doungeon 60 fps (no stuttering)

    (STEP Mod "core" installed but vmem not saturated)

    I tried fps limiter, d3doverrider, bandicam set to 60 and Dxtory set in this way:

    (basically I just popped limit to 60 fps in this tab without changing anything else)

    Just thought I'd post this mod, because I feel it's something which was missing from Bethesda's games for a long time.

    Riverwood Barber
    No more showracemenu console command to change hair required.
    The barber can also paint your face as well!

    its probably that HD4870X2. Skyrim has multi GPU performance issues especially with Crossfire.

    Please can somebody help me here.

    I have one eye that cant focus very well, and a patch to the game has made the general levels of "Fog" and "Blurryness" Much higher than they used to be.

    I know for some inexplicable reason many ppl seem to like to have the whole screen fogged & blurred out all the time interfering with the graphics, but for me it causes a real problem - my eyes begin to strain and stress trying to focus the image, and what at first is just very painful and uncomfortable, eventually makes me feel physically sick and I cannot play anymore.

    In most games you can just disable "bloom" or whatever and everything's fine again -but as we all know there are practically no settings in Skyrim at all.

    PLEASE PLEASE : Can somebody help me to get a patch / Mod / hack that can make the air "CLEAR" all the time ? Remove all Bloom / Fog effects?

    Either a game patch or a tool that can disable the functions on my GFX card (ATI)?

    Even perhaps a mod that replaces ALL the weather with One Standard "clear-weather" mode?


    Since the patch ( I don't know what one - I was about 5 patches behind, and did them all at once ) I cannot play the game at all anymore - as per the screenshot above EVERYTHING apart from the char himself is now usually blured and fogged and out of focus almost all the time and this is causing me so much eye strain I really cannot even look at it for more than 5 minutes :(

    Try Revamped Exterior Fog mod. It pushes the fog further back and reduces it density by 50%

    Well it sure sounds better than nothing - but sadly it does not seem to work at all :(

    Thx anyway.

    EDIT :

    Well that is not technically true, As per this second pic you can see that this patch does affect a few things in already reasonably clear areas, such as the sky / stars in this shot have gotten clearer with the patch - but most heavily fogged areas are just as bad as ever - as per first pic.

    When I first played this it was somewhat buggy, so I dropped it. I was wondering, how far have the official (and if there is any, the unofficial) patches come? Mainly in terms of quest bugs.

    I've never actually had a quest bug of any kind; I've had tons of stupid glitches though like armor and heads missing, that sort of thing. Windhelm disapeared one day as well. Ahh, bethesda. Theyre the best.

    A large majority of the quest bugs I had encountered have been either fixed or half fixed and I encountered many quest breaking bugs.

    The current bugs I have, bare in mind this is from my first play through (starting from patch V1.0) and from what I gather, the majority of these quest bugs are related to using a save game from previous patches.

    Major:-
    -Collect bounty from Skald will not clear from quest journal
    -Kill the Bandit at Uttering Hills Camp
    -Kill the Giant at Guldun Rock
    -Two thieves guild fences are still behaving as standard sellers.
    -One Khajiit Caravan not acting as a fence.
    -Skjor is back from the dead.
    -Louis Letrush back from the dead and multiplying.
    -Quests which should not be replayed are being reset. e.g. Helm of Winterhold.
    Some Markath guards will not stop attacking when weapon is sheathed. after killing brotherhood quest target while some guards will attack the guards attacking the player.
    -Ivarstead Guards will not stop attacking when Brotherhood quest target is killed after sheathing weapon and local farmers start attacking the guards.

    Minor:-
    Some ash piles not clearing up.
    Floating weapons appearing randomly around Skyrim

    Should have backed up your skyrim .exe and update.esm file. THen you could have done opt out of Beta Updates and restored your skyrim .exe's and update.esm file and you would have been fine :)

    Yup, you are now a Vampire. You can do a quest to get cured, or sneak around at nght and drink someone's blood to lower your Vampire level. Right now you are in bloodlust mode from not drinking blood, and everyone can see the crazy in your eyes.

    You can also command a follower to sleep in a bed or bedroll, then drink their blood.
