Once you get sucked into mods, the vanilla game can never compare again.

Yeah, it's torture knowing how good Morrowind *could* look

(although I've grown pretty fond of Morrowind's graphics, to be honest)

You won't get the well rested "bonus" after sleeping, but you can turn into a werewolf and fuck shit up. That's about it.

I can see that - I've started a separate character for them. I suspect there'll come a point where once the character has enough money and carrying capacity to just carry the shit around, it ends up like you say, as a bit of a nuisance. But to start with, when I can't quite carry or afford all the stuff I need, it makes for some weirdly trivial but frantic stuff. I just spent an hour trying to cure myself of diseases, fatigue and hunger all at the same time, staggering around Riften trying to work out where the chapel was.

Finally got back to Skyrim after a while away. DL'ed a hotkeys mod that means there are actually easy-to-use, convenient hotkeys. I have such a hard-on for this game stylistically. Dark, snowy, dragons flying around, it's so 'me'. By which I mean it's the kind of setting I enjoy in fantasy, I don't think I'm some kind of dark and edgy kid.

EDIT: I'm sure you all know this, but just in case. I find that changing the timescale helps when you're playing with realism mods. Otherwise you'll find your character getting hungry and thirsty every few minutes, so you spend more time eating than you do actually doing stuff.

Well... pretty sure the Elder Scrolls games are older than The Pit. I definitely played Morrowind before joining UG.

I made sure not to add the large critical damage skill on my bow assassin so that he wasn't OP.

And this is why combat mods increase enemy health.

Honestly, I'm not sure why dragons aren't partially immune to backstab.

cause there's only 1 you can actually do it to (at least on console)

health increases don't make much difference to me anymore, my dagger base damage is 212 lol

If you're thinking about it, do it now. That shit will take almost a whole day to DL. I got screwed out of my first invite that way. Should've known better...

Oh man, another round of ESO beta testing? Thanks for the heads up, I might not have checked my email today. Edit: I get to keep my characters from the last beta test! Awesome!

I played some Daggerfall the other day (I bought the Anthology, so now I have all five games) and damn is it tough. I played for like half an hour, died before saving, made a new character, played for probably an hour, and I'm still in the very first dungeon. Still oddly pretty fun though. It's interesting to see how even the change from Daggerfall to Morrowind streamlined so much and cut out a lot of skills, much like Morrowind->Oblivion and Oblivion->Skyrim.

I just wish there was some way to make the DOSBox screen bigger without making it fullscreen. The normal window is so small it feels like I have to squint to see things, but the resolution on fullscreen is so awful it hurts my eyes.


Edit: There's a sidenote on the invite that mentions extra invites on curse.com. I can't access that site right now because I'm at work and the web filter is blocking it, but the email seems to imply that you can go there and get a beta access key even if you didn't sign up previously or get an email invite. Can anyone confirm that?
Edit2: Bleh. Nevermind. I checked it from home and you have to have an account at that site. Too much trouble.

Well, I probably won't do it. Simply because I'm not sure I want to get sucked into another MMO. They just take up so much time. I'd rather focus on RPGs, because I don't have to be there for a guild or friends to do dungeons/raids.
