It IS just an updated version of Gamebyro

They sold it left and right: It's a new engine. It's a brand new reworked engine, etc etc... no, it IS just a new version of the same old engine, modded by Bethsoft or not, it' is what it is. It may look better, and the animations are nicer, but look at the telltail: the water. Yes, the current moves you now, thats awesome, but the same exact splash circles are there when your character moves in the water and the same exact "layer" between above and underwater is there. If they had a completly NEW engine, why would it have the same exact details as the last one?

If this is a "duh" that was realized long before release, please bonk me.

Having said all that, I'm going to go back into my livingroom and very much enjoy my new ES game!

:fishme: There you go!  :sheo:

I felt that this was what was going to happen, but I do not blame them. The Gamebyro engine was pretty good for both Oblivion and Morrowind, but they modded it to make it better. Its just a more advanced form of what we do for Morrowind. Morrowind is a good game by itself, but it can be made better with certain modifications. Have fun! I'll be waiting until Tuesday for mine.  :tapfoot: (Though it does give an excuse to play SimCopter again) It looks uber awesome from what I've seen in the reviews.

Regardless of what the engine really is, my big concern of course is stability.  I know I've heard a lot of issues that people have had with CTDs, but personally I've not had any.  I've got about 6 hours in so far, and the only thing of the type I've had was when I alt-tabbed to desktop when my anti-virus went crazy with some unrelated notifications and locked everything up.

So far, I'm quite pleased.  My computer at this point is mostly below the recommended requirements, and the installer told me to use medium graphics settings.  I've got it on high, and it's as smooth and pretty as I could hope for!

I have below the minimum requirements, yet I am running the graphics on high. I have had zero crashes. None. 15 hours of gameplay, not a single crash, and most of those hours fairly continuous. I don't care if this is just an updated Gamebryo, this one works.

Just as a matter of curiosity, what system specs are you running Skyrim on? I have below the minimum, but enough to run Oblivion at "Fairly Pretty" kinda levels, and I'm really wondering now.

Hopefully I can run mine on very high the second I get the game. Just ordered a new Alienware Laptop.

Anyone else seeing snow-covered wooden platforms that have missing shading?

So far, I just leveled to 12, but the vibe I get most from Skyrim so far is that it's a heavly modded and modernized Morrowind. The whole crafting thing is deff like a crafting mod from MW. Soo far so good from my perspective. I'm in love with this game right now. I realy hope this is a true ES game. (Obliv was fun, but it was too childish)
