Scully: There has to be a logical explanation, just want to make sure we look at all the options, you dont think its a SSE bug?

Mulder : I Dont think its a bug Scully, and if its not a Bug and if its not a UFO it has to be either the Enterprise, Serenity, the Dauntless, the Millennium Falcon or any other number of ships passing by that night?

FINANCIAL REPORT

The Skyrim Special Edition Butterfly Affect

 

Butterfly's in Bethesda's new Skyrim Special Edition have nearly been hunted to extinction by the locals, they are simply so beautiful that every one must have one framed on there wall.

 

The new graphical enchantments that changed dull & gloomy Skyrim last week had a major impact on the little helpless butterfly's making them more valuable then a bar of gold. Jarl's across Skyrim are taking drastic measures as animal rights group Green Peace threatens that they will have get involved and try to stop this insane carnage.

 

Singes that read "Butterfly Wing Plucking Free Zone, Between the Hours of 6am - 11pm, Fines up to 5000 Septims" now litter the ever so beautiful landscape of the SSE.

 

Regardless of the drastic measures the numbers of Butterfly's keeps on mysteriously dropping, and now Lunar Moths have been also included on the Endangered Spices List

 

As the shadow of financial claps looms over Skyrim, Media outlets across Skyrim are coming forward and are revealing the magnitude of the sandal. The front page of ~THE TAMRIEL TIMES~ read like this QUOTE: "A dramatic drop in Luna Moth numbers" & "They are being targeted by invisible, healthy, light armored alchemists"

 

Potions of Minor Healing today reached the new record price of 830septims per bottle. The Skyrim Stock Market collapsed again for the third day strait, as Jarls & Thanes rushed to sell there shares. It has been rumored that they are investing there shares in a more respectable offshore Panama-based service provider called Mossack Fonseca

A spokes man for the Skyrim Treasury said: "Its not our fault we took such drastic measures by banning wing plucking, people where complaining, and animal rights groups where about to get involved in the case." continuing he said: "Its the greedy Alchemist Corporation that has failed to show any compassion to its heavy users & potion addicted customers by jacking up the price, if you want to place any blame, they have caused this financial chaos"

 

In other related news Pro Ban Wing Plucking Supporters clashed yesterday with members of the greedy Alchemist Corporation in Solitude. Angelina's Aromatics was burnt to the ground in retaliation for her over priced potions & for selling butterfly wings under the counter. Due to the Civil unrest across Skyrim, it can now be revealed form leaked footage from the Pentagon on Wiki Leaks that there has been a steady build up of Military Forces along the Imperial & Stormcloack borders & that its only a mater of time before this breaks out into the second Skyrim Civil War!...........read more

HEALTH

Werewolves do you feel like a lost little puppy?

 

After an extensive research of 2 years and with over 3 millon werewolves participating in tests & working with their local practitioner’s, we can finally reveal to you 5 easy steps you can take to make your life as a werewolf happy & fulfilling & avoid the long arm of the Law.

 

Step 1: By Law in most countries on Earth it is compulsory to get microchip, that way if you ever lose yourself, all you have to do is walk into your closest Vet & they will contact you to come and pick yourself up, small fee might apply.

 

Step 2: It is advised to use a leash on yourself, when you take yourself for walk to the park, also take some small plastic bags for when you want take a crap in the bush. It is advise to leave your self-tied up on a pole whilst you do your shopping, and if you leave yourself in the car please leave a widow slightly open for fresh air & so you don’t come back and find your beloved self-dead from the Heat.

 

Step 3: You will be arrested for urinating on poles with the excuse that you are marking your territory & it does not help chasing after the cop car as it is trying to leave!

 

Step 4: make sure you get all your shots & flea treatments, rabies & frantic scratching is not a good way to socialize, especially if you’re looking for that special bitch to bear your children.

 

Step 5: our study shows that most common injuries to a werewolf are dislocated ankles, knees, and hips from trying to scratch that itch behind the ear, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED do not attempt in human form.

Special PS4 MOD Investigation

 

After months of speculation & uncertainty About PS4 MODS, our paper decided to investigate the matter deeper, we sent Reporter Sah deep deep undercover to uncover the truth

 

After getting the job as head of security at a secret high-tech facility called the PS4Pro and after weeks of investigating and pushing buttons that she maybe should of not have pushed in the first place.

The truth can finally be revealed as to why Sony did not want to go ahead with MODS. Beloved reader please read on and make your own conclusions.

 

This one's name is Reporter Sah. This one is deep under cover working for the PS4 MOD CORPORATION the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world. This one was head of security at a secret high-tech facilityty called the PS4Pro, a giant underground laboratory developing experimental MODS.

 

There was an incident, someone pushed a button, there identity still remains a big mystery and all the security camera tapes have also gone missing. A MOD escaped. A lot of people died. The trouble was, they didn't stay dead. The computer that controlled the PS4Pro was a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence called the Dualshock4 Wireless Controller

The Dualshock4 Wireless Controller responded to the threat of the MOD outbreak in an extreme way.

It went homicidal. "You're all going to be deleted down here"

The Dualshock4 Wireless Controller attempted to delete everyone whether they were infected or not.

 

I managed to escape, but this was only the beginning. The MOD outbreaks spread like wildfire, first across the Skyrim, then the Commonwealth. The MODS didn't just bring the dead back to life. It mutated them in terrifying ways. Despite the apocalypse they had created the PS4 MOD CORPORATION continued to experiment with the deadly MODS. I was infected. But the MOD bonded with this one on a cellular level. I developed powers. I became different. Powerful. Unstoppable. As this one got stronger, the race's of Tamriel became weaker. I tried my best to lead what survivors I could find to safety, but we were pursued relentlessly. Even my friend Serana was seized and brain washed by the the PS4 MOD CORPORATION. "Bight & suck to kill."...........read more

Skyrim Special Edition MOD Addiction - A True Story

 

When this one was a teenager a year ago she had her little mother & daughter talk about....MODS

Did this one listen to a word she said? NO in one ear and out the other, this one was overwhelmed with MODS wanted them so bad (putting your mace in the freezer bad)

So I did it! I gave my self away, first one MOD then two, soon too ever MOD that would come my way, it was ECSTASY. Its raining MODS Hallelujah so wrong mummy.

 

But then the problems came, MODS under the bed, in the closet, 6 or 7 MODS on the balcony. I was MOD happy, what next Followers, one, two....ten, who cares, I was so happy. I was in MOD Heaven.

The truth was I was a slave to MODS, I was getting drained, it was taking me longer to do things, I got slower, sluggish & I started lagging soon I could not keep up. That's when the real problems started, the crashing, at the beginning it was once a month, then it became two, before I new it I was crashing every day, to the point where I could not did not want to go on.

 

Luckily a girl friend suggested we get help, I took all my MODS to see a counselor called Dr BOSS changed his name to Dr LOOT i think, he put a sense of order back into my life...The crashing stopped but I was scared.....I was damaged goods...... mummy was right

 

So I went home and with the advice from mummy did a new instillation from scratch, the past is behind me now. Now I'm seeing some very nice MODS, they do there best to make me feel special, still early days, who knows might be MR Right............read more

Welcome to AFKMods!

Also, where can I subscribe to the Skyrim Morning Herald? :D

 

Thank you so much JayCrane for the  welcome  :clap: wow this place is mind boggling :blink: this one is way out of her depth, but cant wait to look at the mod department :dancing:  

 

The Sydney Morning Herald is so sorry that it cant cant accept your subscription request at the present time. We had to sack Accountant Sah last week, to many flights using Editor Sah's personal jet behind her back!

So our subscription department is down for the moment. We are currently looking into a new delivery system BUTTERMAIL but there seems to be a shortage of butterfly's at the present time.

As soon as this small issue is resolved we can deliver anywhere in the world, right to your front door step & free of charge.

Yours truly Official Spokes Person Sah and sorry for the typo above, always gets the two mixed up.

Hello,

just joined up - thank you for this site, and for your work with Beths games!

Despite my rather Falloutish nick I played nearly all of the games Beth calls 'role playing games', even when they are rather glorified role playing shooters :devil:

I am living in Austria (no not down under, but Europe), and by profession I am an electronic developer/designer. For all you software types - this is the copper under your hands when you type :evil:

I joined because I hope - as a longtime Beth gamer - sometimes to be able to help with verifications and reports, and also to ask dumb questions...

At this time I am addicted to Fallout 4. Nearly as much as I was addicted to Morrowind at the time it was released...

Hello.

I've been playing beth games since 2005, always on pc. Skyrim has been my favorite game since 2011; I looked forward to FO4, but it didn't live up to my expectations. I live in Norway, far north of the arctic circle, and Skyrim has really felt like home for me.

Although not among those who cannot play Skyrim without modding I have found a lot of mods with fixes and textures and smart ideas useful for a more stable and inspiring gameplay. I still play the 2011 version, but I will look into SE later. Partially because my computer is of 2011 standard, and I'm planning to build a new rig later this year.

Hi everyone.
I've been playing ES-games for a long time, starting my journey with Morrowind when I was a little kid and climbing the ladder of titles over the coming years.
While I don't consider myself a modder, I always find myself fiddling with the CK or TESV edit and perhaps, someday, I will finish (or release) anything of value.

Until then, I hope you will bear with me while I watch silently from the shadows. :)
Cheers.

You know I've been here long enough to make about 130 posts but I never saw this thread until today. :P

That's the first thing you should know about me.

So lets see, a few facts about me without doxing myself.

  • I'm 45, have a wife, 2 kids, and a 120lb dog. The dog weighs more than my wife, but is her Huan.
  • I work for a cloud computing company.
  • Previously I was the lead *nix administrator and a PM on the NASA agency-wide messaging program.
  • The first computer I ever used was a PDP-11 85.
  • My great-uncle was a member of Werner von Braun's Apollo rocket team, and was an engineer on the Saturn V rocket.
  • Another relative of mine was the head of set construction for Walt Disney and Buena Vista studios.
  • I've been doing Elder Scrolls games since Daggerfall, although I thought it was fairly terrible (at the time) aside from the lore.
  • I started modding in earnest with Morrowind.
  • I was in a semi-pro punk band in college.

I also love beer, although I only drink one or two a day if that frequently. My favorite beer at the moment is St. Bernardus Abt 12 but I'm also partial to Tripel Karmeleit.

Hi everyone  :wave:

My dedication to modding started long ago with Oblivion. I wanted to reach perfection and delayed a release until my daughter was born.

I stopped modding due to lacking time. Without a release!

But I saw a lot of things that I didn't like when SE was released. And my inner voice said: "Now or never!"

 

And here I am!

I just realized that I never had an account here. That issue has now been rectified.

Too busy with modding, I suppose.  The mod has been released if that was your issue. :P

Anyway, welcome to AFK Mods Vincent! :horkercookie:
