Drakkmore - really hoping for the best with your computer. That's a really tough situation.


Well Howdy
Haven't seen you on in some time

Thanks    Good Idea for a school name   Enrollment and classes for the Dwemer are long over   lol    Working on the Interior of the main school area.  Lots of empty desks
dried up inkwells and yellowed parchment.

You should pull out the chairs and put ash piles in each, with another to the side of the easel and a wand/pointer on the floor.

Good Idea  !!  Oddly enough I thought about that but wasn't sure how it would be accepted since in game their is no ash piles until you get into the Tribunal Add on

However .....Me thinks I shall

Added touch of realism

I know not this Dzurm you are referring

But be assured I am following the rules and have been amassing clutter, even some new cluttery clutter, I just finished the shoes and I am currently working on a robe that has the just fallen look... using the Bamz-something or other Ruin as an example many of those ash piles have armor and or weapons about, these are student's and professors  they would have been wearing most likely robes

Been out for a bit, quite sickly   but I'm good now

Still working on the Dwemer School and surrounding areas

Managed to make a bridge extension, didn't like the size of the dwemer bridge yet the arches were so close together, made things difficult for me to work with it.

Bridge Extension - widens the gap between the dwemer bridge pieces

Bridge piece looks good.
Sadly I could not get my machine up, and running again. There is more than just the hard drive wrong with it, so I had to get a cheap laptop. It should run Blender, but I'm having trouble getting it to work. Mostly because windows 10 is eating what resources that my laptop has. I will not be able to get those doors done for you, for the time being. Maybe not at all if you want it in the next year or two (depending on when I can afford to build a new pc).
I'll say this when I can build a new machine it will NOT have windows 10. I hate this OS.

Thanks

No worries about that door, just something I'd like to have,  I can probably do it, got need some more practice

and sorry about yor PC woes,  I do understand that !!   Yes my advice  no Windows 10   tried it once   never again

Hopefully you'll get a good PC  at a low price and in a reasonable amount of time

Yeah I'm looking around for decent, not too expensive parts. I built the last one about 4 months after Skyrim was released, due to Skyrim killing the machine I built for Morrowind way back when Morrowind was new. Quite surprising that the old old machine ran Skyrim at all. Currently though the machine that I'd like to build is sitting around $2700ish.

I couldn't honestly say I understand the woes of computer building nor the costs for good parts,  I have 2 store bought desk tops and 1 build for me by a bunch of computer nerds from the University of Texas  (Friends of Mine) and yes I call them nerds to their faces,   but it's mutual !!   We have a D & D group.... and with the combined brain
power you'd think one of them would be good at scripting, which I am not....  just saying

I have never tried running Skyrim on my older unit  I am pretty sure it won't work since I bought it in 2000 and stilling running windows XP  now I just use it to store my files
(back up) just in case I crash and burn I wouldn't have to start over.   

I'm sure you'll get a resolve

Do you make/alter the landscape, or just work within/around the vanilla MW?

Re: This is what I do when I get bored

PostPosted: Sun Jun 16, 2019 2:55 pm
by dietbob196045
I am creating the landscape, from scratch   The Image above is the layout phase  I use static Models in an interior cell to design the area, then once I've decided on the landscape texture's and terrain features, (rocks, trees etc etc.... I move to an exterior cell and make the necessary adjustments to the landmass tweek, re-tweek and re-re-tweek, copy and paste from my interior to the exterior  (in this case) i haven't completely decided if I will just keep it as an interior cell

Their are some models I've made such as a open cave system that won't work in a exterior cell, unless I do some serious landscaping craziness that may not look very realistic, but I will try though

Did I actually answer your question ?

Needed a few other dwrv pipe fittings, so I made a few, thought I might expand on it sometime in the future for Modders to use in their constructions and such

Another useful item which is missing from the dwemer pipe fittings is a pipe cap

I noticed that, but I just imagined that other adventurers had already looted all the pipe caps, like destructive teenagers.

A distinct possibility, It's small, easy to hide from the authorities, probably worth more then it should be cause it's dwemer made and as we all know dwemer made stuff lasts forever.  However,  I do believe that Bethesda just didn't feel a necessity to include a pipe cap.  Which in all reality is a vital part of any complex piping.... drainage !
I suppose the Dwemer were just so good at piping their was no need for a drainage tube.

With all the steam leaks they have, no, they don't need any drainage. :P

Good Point

They probably didn't consider leaks since Dwemer Made Product comes with a lifetime guarantee, but it does contain a disclaimer which includes the disappearance from existence due to unforeseen circumstances involving experimentation with Deity Hearts.  Page 6 Para.9, sub para. 4B appendix 3.... it's plain as can be  :)

If it has a lifetime guarantee, that means it has been out of warranty for ages. (Two ages, I believe.)

And some

approx 3700 years best guess since the Dwemer vanished, considering time is on stand-by until the next ES release
