  1. I've managed to play NV all of one time, completely vanilla, without even any of the DLCs that came later on. I didn't really care for it much myself either. It's definitely not the kind of game that Obsidian is good at. Open world free form is not their thing, so their attempts to railroad things with artificial barriers and impossible creature spawns to block certain paths in the early game REALLY grated badly on me. I much prefer both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 in terms of world design. It's probably a stalemate as to which company is better at story writing. People fawn over NV like it's supposed to be godlike, but I found it to be about as mundane and lackluster as anything else that's out there. Fallout 4 may be a bit forced in its execution of the story, but IMO it did a better job of casting you in the ROLE of the character - much like CDPR does a good job of casting you in the ROLE of Geralt or V. I don't even mind the voiced protagonist, but for the purposes of modding it does make things more difficult to deal with.
  2. Check it again on the default. I normally don't touch the HTML/CSS editing on that because it needs to work as a fallback in case something breaks in the main theme.
  3. The guys who developed the theme we're using posted a solution to fix the rank icons. They're back under the avatars where they belong
  4. You may just need to be persistent about it or upload them one at a time then. All I can tell you is that when I run into this, that's what works for me. Numerous people have filed bug reports about this with IPB but so far they've expressed no interest in fixing it.
  5. You may have run into an intermittent bug with the upload process. Sometimes, for reasons IPB doesn't seem to know, when the images are given their thumbnails, it then uses the thumbnails for the real ones too. But only during the initial upload. If you wipe them all out and reup them at the proper resolution, then it works fine. It's an annoyance but one we've just had to live with.
  6. Not sure if you're aware of it, but your text is all black and therefore unreadable.
  7. From the album: Arthmoor's Goodies

    Empyrion - Galactic Survival My conversion of the Heidelberg wreck from the main story line. My fleet is preparing to depart the system for the firs time.
  8. Unfortunately that's not possible. The ACP option only allows for setting up the redirect link but not how to make it open in your browser.
  9. Aren't those also due to be shuttered today?
  10. I'm not going to comment on the Nexus part of this, but two of you have expressed concern about file sizes. Unfortunately the site here is not really fitted to store large amounts of content. The limits set in the upload forms are there to prevent things from getting too far out of control for my current hosting situation to handle. Linode is great, but assigning additional storage is an expensive proposition with them that I'm not currently in a position to expand on. I'd love nothing more than to let you guys upload your stuff here, but multi-gigabyte mod files would chew through the space I have pretty quickly.
  11. The wine was changed to holy water because it's what the quest called for in Sam's note and the intended item for the purpose was not spawned in. His note clearly lists Giant's Toe, not some made up variety of toe, so that's not something we'd consider a bug.
  12. Version 4.1.5 Synced with the latest USSEP fixes.
  13. Yes. Sony has not changed their policy and they're likely never going to.
  14. I reported the rank bars thing to the theme author - should have checked default first, because it's an IPB bug with the update and I'll have to open a ticket with them about it.
  15. So long as you're not waiting on me to put it up on Nexus. While they're insistent on revoking control over what we do with our files is an ongoing thing, I won't be updating anything there anymore.
  16. I'm not sure why they changed the custom title thing, but I found the setting and re-enabled it. So that should be working again. I REALLY have no idea what the hell they're doing with the rank icons, ugly stretched green bars are not the images we've uploaded here, and there's no longer any sort of setting to display them as text like before. Also I don't really want to have to start making custom changes to the theme because that makes updates to the package a great deal more difficult to manage and often results in breaking things.
  17. The next iteration of IPB was made available and since it included a security update for the previous version, it was time to update. Please let me know if any oddities have crept in as the upgrade process for new versions and custom themes is rarely without its problems.
  18. Those are all text changes, which I'll get to carrying through at some point, but you're fine if you carry them over now until I can get to it.
  19. The gallery is an entirely separate module in IPB from the forum core.
  20. Sometimes I wonder about the default settings in this package. It was turned off, you should be able to do it now. I'll look into raising the limit some too, but I can't remove it. We don't have the space to allow everyone to go unlimited on something like this. So I'd suggest finding ways to reduce the size of the attached content so your quota spaces will last longer. Even a slight reduction in compression quality can have a huge impact on the file size of an image. I have to do it all the time when uploading images for mods to Steam Workshop and so far Paint.net hasn't caused a noticeable drop in their visual quality.
  21. You should actually be able to do it from that listing as well. On the very right of each entry in the list, there should be a checkbox. If you click that, then a pop-up option should appear at the bottom of the screen that says something like "With 2 selected" and a trash can icon next to it. You can select as many items on the list as you want, and should be able to delete them en masse. Just be careful because deletions are unforgiving
  22. The CW map in Dragonsreach is actually upstairs behind the throne room. The one in Farengar's area is a different asset that's also part of the vanilla game.
  23. Starflight and Starflight 2 were both two of my favorite games back in the C-64 days. I've been wanting a space RPG like them ever since. Hopefully Starfield can finally deliver on that. Empyrion is sort of close in that it has a massive galaxy to explore, but the RPG elements are lacking without a really good scenario mod for it.
  24. "The last version of Windows ever!" Uh huh, how's that working out now guys? Based on what little I've seen of this 11 stuff, I don't want it. But then there's 4 years between me and the end of Windows 10 so I'll worry about it 4 years from now I guess.
