I like mods but everytime I disable or delete a mod I always end up starting again because I'm paranoid of breaking my save. I've started again more times than a gold digger looking for their next victim to exploit.

f*cking hate having to clear my cache too everytime I disable, re-order or delete a mod, especially because I have to manually turn off my Xbox One to do it instead of clearing it through a menu like on 360.

Glad i waited for the price drop, id be pissed if i bought this game full price lol so i finally got it and for a remaster, it looks exactly like the ps3 version. I was expecting the gameplay to feel a little different but it feels exactly the same. Not smooth. I had my fun with skyrim last gen though , im going to return it tomorrow. Too clonky for a p4 game

What did you expect? Of course it feels the same. And while it's certainly not the prettiest game out there, it still looks and runs a hundred times better than it ever did on the PS3.

Why didn't you look it up on Youtube first then? That's how I see if I'd be interested in a game. No point wasting cash on a game I haven't even properly seen yet.

To be honest it took a few hours for me to start noticing the difference. The graphics really shine when it's sunset/sunrise and all the new lighting effects come in to play. Also, there's remembering what game looked like in your head and the reality of it. I suggest playing it for a few more hours. Usually the first sit down with a game, I find is adjusting time. Even going back to an old game like Bully, I thought it looked bad but the second and third time I put it on, it felt like I was looking at those graphics at the time. 

 

Play a few more hours and then go look at the PS3 version. Then you'll realise how much it's improved. 

 

Also, turn the depth of field off. As a photographer, I'm appalled at the misuse of depth of field where it's unnecessarily thrown in to games now, especially they they try to make it dynamic, usually it activates when it's unneeded. You'll appreciate the draw distance.

DOF is only appropriate in cutscenes IMO, and only if it's subtle enough just to give more focus to the characters and other important things in the scene. That's why it exists in the movies, isn't it? As far as gameplay DOF is concerned, it can be useful to hide bad LOD in the distance. Especially bad foliage.

I agree with you. I can see it was used heavily in GTA IV but didn't look natural to me. Everything looked too soft. Great use of it in The Witcher. It's not on the open-world but it's used tastefully in cutscenes.

Its not wasting cash if i can get the same amount of cash that i payed back at gamestop. I still have the game for ps3 tho but idk why i just thought it would be some sort of noticable difference. But im not mad

It's been almost three years since my first time playing this game and I finally did it. I finally got around to acquiring the last two trophies that I needed for the platinum.

Just looking on Steam at my game hours, it came up in a facebook discussion of 100+ hours of games and I have quite a few that are cracking on for 1000, but Skyrim somehow has 2398 hours logged, thats 2 hours away from 100 full days... Am I a freak?

 

Whats everyone at?

Got over 800 on the 360 but if I had to count the deleted characters, my first character who had over 160 hours and got overwritten, times I died without saving in the wild then it's easily 1000+ hours and I got over 90 hours out of the special edition.

I can't say so.

 

In the era where a lot of people are playing certain titles just to follow trend, buying a game solely to get the platinum trophy to gain other people's approval and applause, you instead spent time in the game you are truly enjoying.

 

It's superbly respectable in my view.

Playing Skyrim again after my last save a while back got corrupted somehow. I lost a bit of progress but slowly back to where I am. Putting Skyrim on again is like coming home. I really love this place. If there is a heaven, I bet it looks like Skyrim.

Love this game so much I bought SSE at full price on PC. I could've got it free at the time but I didn't have Hearthfire unfortunately. Recently bought the Special Edition just so I can defeat Alduin a couple more times. My 32 bit Oldrim always crashes and the frame rate is sketchy at best so 60 FPS on Skyrim with better graphics and a more stable copy is worth it to me seeing how utterly brilliant this game is.

 

Was sad to see the achievements do not carry over though, as I completed Oldrim 100% but with this new copy I feel like a war vet who had his medals taken.

If you deleta a mod and download it again does it reset?

Only asking because I got the bear peak cave mod and accidentally fus ro dah'd one of my merchants off the cliff. Waited for days but I don't think he's coming back.

Sorry I can't help you. Looks like you might have to go to and older save if that's possible?

Nice, I'm going for that perk too. Unlocks at level 50. I'm only at 33 right now. 

 

Pity you nuked the guy and he didn't come back. It's pretty funny though.

 

Thought I'd also share this screenshot. You know those lovely Skyrim late mornings and afternoons when the sun is shining and the sky is blue. It had been raining for some time, you just been underground for 24hrs in-game and then you travel through the night and dawn and then morning breaks and everything is so calm and peaceful...

A great idea. Why shouldn't modders be paid for their services, it might increase their quality too.

 

The response from gamers to paid mods just shows they are the most entitled and toxic community on the internet.

Hold on a second and think about it.

I like the idea of less restriced, polished and certified mods to play on my PS4 and hell, I'd gladly pay to support the modders.

But: They're going to milk those games for 2-3 more years at least at this rate. I know that I want to see TES6 as soon as possible. Instead they give us a remaster and now more paid mod support. If this will be a sucess then who knows how long it's going to keep TES6 away from us.

It reminds me a lot of GTAO, a game that's still being milked today with no sign of a sequel.

This new implementation is not really anything like the "wild west" that was the steam workshop fiasco. A lot more promising on paper.

Paid mods will have no impact on TES 6's development what-so-ever. Don't be overly dramatic.

I think this one's aimed at console players. Releasing mods in a form of DLC is actually really something good for PS4 players due to restrictions.

Maybe I overreacted a bit.

This is less paid mods and more like contracting third party developers to make content for your games.

 

To summarise:
*Heavily curated; application process (so not everyone can just sign up and get in on the $$$), existing mod content cannot be retrofitted for creation club etc

*Creation club members can't actually just make whatever they want. They've got to submit pitches and have them approved.

*Creators are subject to Bethesda's dev pipeline (uuhh.. teehee) and everything is subject to full Q&A. Content is localized across all (five?) languages the game is available in.

*Creators don't get paid a percentage of the sales (unless things have changed). They're paid a salary (of sorts) throughout the content's dev process.
