  1. Robin Scott claims that he has a contract, by way of his TOS, which allows him to keep copies of peoples mods, in spite of the authors wishes. Prior to the change in the TOS, authors were able to terminate their contract with Nexus by deleting their mods. However, with this change to the TOS, authors are trapped in a contract. The great sticking point in all this is that the change to the TOS was done without notification of, or consultation with, Mod authors. The problem is that the software changes which made copies of our mods were implemented and authors were not told until it was a fete accompli. And that is the whole problem. The issue is NOT mod packs, mod packs is a deflection used by those who favor Robin's action and is a means to bash authors who wish to retain their rights over their mods. Not is it about cathedral vs parlor, because this change affects authors regardless of which model they choose. And for the record, I have deleted all my mods from Nexus Mods. If you are interested, they are still available on Bethesda.net.
  2. Quite frankly, I preferred neither, nor am I am nostalgic for them. One seemed to me to be dominated by children, while the other by childish adults. In either case, I found them annoying and mostly stayed away. I only joined Bethesda.net in the hopes it would be better than it's predecessor and only stick around because it allows for a new audience for the mods I am responsible for. I searched long and hard for a site which suited me and my disposition and even abandoned forums all together for a while. I wound up here because I heard about the discord and stayed for the tranquility. Getting help with making a mod is easy and there was a wealth of knowledge here which is willingly shared. Discussions centered around making mods, the tools for making mods, and about specific games. "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Look at me mommy!" posts and threads were few and far between.
  3. I am not anyone's "sweetie". I find such unsolicited familiarity distasteful, and in this case, somewhat condescending. Croc is fine. And I go back to the original Bethesda forums as well. Your assumptions are showing.
  4. I noticed in one of the images that there was a map of Skyrim on a Noble divider. Is that something you made or is it buried somewhere in the CK?
  5. Different audience. Different tastes. Different thinking. No matter how much you try recreate it, this will never become another Bethesda.Net.
  6. GOG has several older Bethesda Titles on sale for ten dollars US right now. Oblivion GOTY: https://www.gog.com/game/elder_scrolls_iv_oblivion_game_of_the_year_edition_deluxe_the Fallout 3 GOTY: https://www.gog.com/game/fallout_3_game_of_the_year_edition Fallout NV Ultimate Edition: https://www.gog.com/game/fallout_new_vegas_ultimate_edition When you buy any of these games, The Elder Scrolls: Arena and The Elder Scrolls Chapter II: Daggerfall will be added to your GOG.com account for free!
  7. Fallout New Vegas with all DLC, Survival Mode. The character I used was a long range marksman who would rather talk than fight. Played the main quest to completion, went the Wild Card route and New Vegas is independent. Convinced the Khans to sneak off during the battle for the dam. but killed all the Powder Gangers and other gang members I found. Got the followers of the Apocalypse to idolize me. Reduced the BoS Bunker and Hidden Valley to a smoldering tomb. Make the Boomers idolize me, and getting to their gate was the closest I came to dying until ... After the end of the main quest and the routing of both the NCR and the Legion,I reloaded the game at the checkpoint just before the battle for the dam. I wanted to do the DLC. I made it through Lonesome Road, the big Empty and Zion with little more than scrapes and scratches. But alas, as I was fleeing from Elijah after trapping him in the vault I missed a jump and fell from a elevated walkway into the cloud and that was it. The only mods I used was the Old Marine Caches from Black Swan (may he rest at ease) and Perk Every Level by PheonixFang55.
  8. The only "Active" file is the one which gets saved when you SAVE or close the CK. The other files are Master Files. Master files will show up on the right side of the window under Parent Masters when you open an existing mod. If you wish to add a new master, simply check the box to the left of the file name on the left side of the window under Plugin/Master Files.
  9. There are two static gargoyle statues (CasGargoyleStatue01 and CasGargoyleStatue01_Snow). Replace the statues in the mod with one of these. Then they're just statues.
  10. Personally, I think the thumbnail size should be smaller. If someone is truly interested is seeing an image, they will click on it and view it independently of the post window; thus viewing the image as the poster intended.
  11. A problem with an authority figure. Multiple complaints to the authority figure. Ignored by the authority figure. Multiple public complaints about the authority figure. Ignored by the public. Resentment for being ignored. Anger towards the authority figure for perceived personal injury. Disproportional response to "perceived personal injury". Lack of empathy for those affected by "disproportional response". Exaggerated sense of self importance. Does any of that sound familiar? Those are the characteristics of America's mass shooters.
  12. I'll stand to Tarshana's defense. The "controversy" surrounding her is based in her honestly and accurately reporting the foibles in mods, and the problems they cause. She routinely points at mods with ITM records, deleted navmesh, wild edits, and the lot. Some mod creators are not mature enough to take constructive evaluations and react childishly. As a result of their infantile attitudes, instead of fixing their mods, they set out to fix Tarshana. So Tarshana is controversial, but only because some have brewed up a tempest to hide their own ineptitude.
