  1. I've never done that before but I'm now trying to play as a Morrowind-like Spellsword. Skills: His or her main abilities will be: One handed weapons, Archery, Destruction, Light Armour (I hate heavy armours). Then, he or she will cultivate the most obvious skills an adventurer is going to need: Smithing, Alchemy, Restoration, Sneak. Suitable races: Imperial, Khajiit, Redguard, the more suited being the Khahiit and the Redguard (four skills in my skills choices for each). Mods: The mods I'm using are the one I made and I uploaded here (except for the Ring of the Pathfinder because I play with the HUD off) plus a few others I didn't upload anywhere, and: Belt-Fastened Quivers, English Strings for Skyrim SE, Bear - In Memory of Taylor (that I converted to SSE), Althir's Camping Tools (that I heavily modified and adapted to SSE). Regarding the Creation Club, I'm using: Survival Mode, Arcane Accessories (the link goes to an empty page but I hope the UESP Wiki people will fill it one day or another).
  2. Hi, Just a small message so that you know that almost all the mods I've posted here contain a version for the special edition: Some of them were specifically made for the special edition:
  3. Hi, Looks interesting but you say it's for Skyrim special edition; the video was made with the original version of the game.
  4. Purpose: This thread is about how I made that mod so that you can try and make similar mods of your own. Using this as a tutorial for your future mods will introduce you to: creating new objects from existing base objects (here the ring and the letter) creating new quests and manage their aliases, script and fragments, writing simple scripts that will extend an object. Permissions: This tutorial is just for your information, you are not allowed to use it to remake this mod and upload it to Bethesda.net or anywhere else. Mod download page: Ring of the Pathfinder What makes this mod: a custom ring, a custom letter, a custom quest, a script added to the ring so that the compass disappears when the player removes it and reappears when they put it on again, a script added to the quest so that the ring is automatically added and equipped to the player, explaining why the compass is visible. Ring of the Pathfinder speculates that the presence of the compass is due to the player wearing a ring, the Ring of the Pathfinder. Putting the ring off will make the compass disappear; putting the ring on will make the compass reappear. This is how it's been made. Workflow: 1) Preparation: if you make a mod for Skyrim Special Edition, launch the Creation Kit and load all the master files (when you play the special edition, you cannot choose not to start either of the expansions.): if you make a mod for the original edition of Skyrim, just loading Skyrim.esm and Update.esm should suffice. 2) Creating a custom ring: In "Items/Armor", choose an existing ring that you like, double-click on it to open its form, here "JewelryRingGoldDiamond": You must change the ID and Name of the form, in order to create a brand new ring: You can also modify the value and description of the ring. In the case of this mod, a script has been added to the ring so that the compass disappears when the player puts it off and reappears when the player puts it on. It's a very simple script that will be described later. Click on "OK" and then on "Yes" in the following pop up window: Your custom ring is now created. Save your mod. 3) Creating the custom letter: The process of creating a custom letter is basically the same as creating a new ring: in "Items/Book", choose an existing letter, open it, change its ID and Name, modify the existing text, save it and click on "Yes" in the "Create New Object" dialogue box. Your custom letter is now created. Save your mod. 4) Creating a custom quest (see here to learn more about quests): The process of creating a new quest is slightly different: In "Character/Quest" right click in the window containing the existing quests on the right and select "New". in the "Quest Data" tab, give an ID to your quest (mandatory) and make sure that "Start Game Enabled" and "Run Once" are selected: That quest not being playable by the player, there is no need to give it a name and choose a type for it. in the "Quest Aliases" tab, create a new "Reference Alias", name it "Player" and assign the specific reference "PlayerRef" to it. Save the alias, save the quest and save your mod. (Do that often, the CK has a knack for crashing at the worst times.) Open the Player reference alias and go down to the "Alias Inventory" dialogue box, right click in it, select "New" and in the drop down menu on the right find "RPF_Ring". Doing this will add the ring to the player's inventory at start of the game. Save the alias, quest and mod. Create a new reference alias in the quest and name it "Letter". In the "Fill type" data, select "Create Reference to Object" and in the drop down menu on the right, find "RPF_LetterFromAuntie". Then in "Create", select "in" and "Player" in the drop down menu. In the Reference alias flags, select "Stores Text" and "Uses Stored Text" (necessary since we use "My Dearest <Alias=Player> in the text. This is also why we put the letter into an alias instead of simply dropping it into the player's inventory like we did for the ring). This alias will create a reference of the letter in the player's inventory. Save the alias, quest and mod. Creating aliases will not create the script that will be attached to the quest. To do that you'll have to create stages for your quest and add "fragments" to these stages. in the "Quest Stages" tab, 1) create a new stage in the "Index" dialogue box, 2) select "Start up stage" and create a new empty "Log Entry". In the "Papyrus Fragment" dialogue box, just enter "; starting quest", click on "Compile" and then on "OK", in order to generate the script that will be attached to the quest: Note: Saving the quest at that point will take some time; do not panic, just wait until it's done. Now that the script has been generated, we can fill it with some code. In stage 0, we will reset the compass to "visible", just in case. In Papyrus Fragment, just under "; Starting quest", enter the following lines: ;putting the compass back, just in case Utility.SetINIBool("bShowCompass:Interface", true) SetStage (5) Compile, create the stage 5 and add an empty log entry to it. Save the quest. In stage 5, we will force the player to equip the ring; doing this will unequip whatever ring the player is wearing at that time. In Papyrus Fragment, add the following lines: ;make player wear the ring Actor PlayerRef = Game.GetPlayer() PlayerRef.EquipItem (RPF_Ring, 0, 1) Setstage (255) RPF_Ring is a property that we'll have to define before compiling the fragment. Click on "Properties": In the "Properties for script..." window that opens, click on "Add property". In the "Add Script Property" window, select "Armor" in the Type drop down menu and give the new property the exact ID of the ring, here "RPF_Ring", so that the CK fills the property automatically. Click on OK and wait for the CK to create the new property. Once the property has been created and filled, click on OK in the "Properties for script..." window and compile the fragment. Create the stage 255 and add an empty log entry to it. Save the quest and the mod. In the stage 255, we will stop the quest; it will no longer be active in your game because, in the case of this mod, it won't be necessary. Select "Shut down stage" (do not select "Complete Quest"; this option is for quests that are playable by the player) and add the following lines to the Papyrus fragment: ; stopping quest Stop () Now we can add the script to the ring. 5) Creating a script that will extend and object reference (here the ring): Open the RPF_Ring form, and at the bottom right find the "Scripts" dialogue box; click on "Add". Select "New Script", give the new script a name, here "RPF_EffectsScript. Do not modify 'Extends Object Reference"! Click on OK. Once the script has been created, right click on it and select "Edit source": and enter the following lines: Event OnEquipped(Actor akActor) if akActor == Game.GetPlayer() Utility.SetINIBool("bShowCompass:Interface", true) endIf endEvent Event OnUnequipped(Actor akActor) if akActor == Game.GetPlayer() Utility.SetINIBool("bShowCompass:Interface", false) endIf endEvent Save the ring and the mod is finished! Foot note: it took more time to write this than to actually make the mod!
  5. Did you ask the author how he would do that?
  6. A cell is a place in the game where you put your armour; like Gerdur's or Alvor's house, an inn or any other place in the world, outside or inside. I don't think scaling the armour addon will do anything to the armour itself. Why exactly do you want to scale it down?
  7. Hi, You must use SetScale on a reference of the armour in game. Put the armour somewhere in a cell and add a script to it. I'm not entirely sure that it will keep the scale if the player drops it on the floor afterwards though. Here is how to use SetScale in a script: https://www.creationkit.com/index.php?title=SetScale_-_ObjectReference

    Content This mod introduces another way to start the mod. Originally, when you load your save, two robes and a quest are shoved onto your player. With this mod, this will not happen. Your player will not get the two robes immediately and the quest will start only once you have read a note you'll find in Nelacar's room in Wintherhold. The player will find the robes at the same place they will find the tomes. -----oOo----- How to install this mod launch the game and go to "Creation Club", buy "Arcane Accessories" and download it, once installed let the game rebuild your data files, download the archive here and extract its content to the "Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data" directory, go to "Mods", and enable CC_ArcaneAccessories_Custom.esp, let the game rebuild your Data files again, load your current save or start a new game. -----oOo----- Note: I removed the quest marker that would lead you to the place where the "Lost Library" is because the player is supposed to "look for it". -----oOo----- Thank you for using my modest mod! -----oOo----- Great many thanks to Bethesda Game Studios for this marvellous game!

The only things belonging to the Survival Mode that were modified are adding "warm" keywords to the Wolf armour, gauntlets and boots, adding the "cold" keyword to the Wolf helmet, that were apparently overlooked. Otherwise, this mod actually modifies content belonging to the core game; these modifications consisting in: adding keywords to the set of fur armour so that you can craft them in the "Hide" category at the tanning rack, rectifying the protection rates of the smaller fur cuirasses so that they do not protect as well as the full ones, modifying the main "food" levelled lists so that they no longer offer an insane quantity of food, fixing the health regeneration magic effect so that it affects the player's health instead of the heal rate. The vanilla food lists I've modified are the following: LItemFoodInnCommon LItemBarrelFoodRawMeatSame LItemBarrelFoodSame70 LItemBarrelFoodSameSmall LItemFoodSaltSmall Thank you for using my modest mod! -----oOo----- Great many thanks to Bethesda Game Studios for this marvellous game!

    Good work!
  13. Yes I have with my draugr and their "alcove" thingy, the markers that make them stand in alcoves or lying in sarcophagi. I found only one way to fix the problem: enabling draugr and markers via script and quest. Use an x marker to enable your npcs and their bound captive markers; put the x marker "disabled at start" and use a quest fragment to enable the x marker. I have no idea why it's not working directly, sorry.
  14. Thank you guys for helping with the money; I wish I could contribute more...

    Ring of the Pathfinder for Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition by ladyonthemoon ---ooOoo--- Description: Ring of the Pathfinder speculates that the presence of the compass is due to the player wearing a ring, the Ring of the Pathfinder. Unequipping the ring makes the compass disappear. 1) On first use of this mod, a ring, the Ring of the Pathfinder, will be automatically added and equipped to your player and a letter from the player's aunt will be added to their inventory. 2) Unequip the ring and the compass will disappear. 3) Equip the ring and the compass will reappear. 4) Lose or sell the ring and the compass will disappear forever. I hope you'll like it! ---ooOoo--- How I made it: Read here for a complete article about how I made this mod: Installation and removal: if you are playing the original version of Skyrim, download "RingOfThePathfinder.zip" and extract its content into your Data directory, if you are playing Skyrim Special Edition, download "RingOfThePathfinderSE.zip" and extract its content into your Data directory. If you want to get it of this mod after playing with it and saving your game, EQUIP THE RING BEFORE REMOVING THE MOD. I know that this is unusual but if your player is not wearing the ring when you remove the mod, you will lose the compass, forever; there is no available console command that could fix that. The ring not being enchanted, there is no risk in doing that. ---ooOoo--- Thanks: Great many thanks to Bethesda Softworks for creating this amazing game!
  16. Let's say that we want a basic place to be static instead of being playable because we want to use that static plate as a support for candles, like this: The first thing you could do is open the object in the CK, modify it's ID so that you do not modify all the plates in the game, and untick the "Playable" flag, but it would feel meh; the object would still have havok which could lead to unwanted behaviour in game. Let's make that basic place a static object instead. Open the CK: 1) load, Skyrim.esm and whatever mod you want to use this new static object in, 2) in the left column select "MiscItem" in the "Items" category. Find "BasicPlate01" in the list and open it. Once open, find the model and click "Edit". When the "Model Data" window opens, select the complete "Model File Name" and copy it. Close the windows by using the "X" button. 2) in the left column select "Static" in the "WorldObjects" category. Right click in the list on the right and click on "new". Give your new static object an ID, here "BasicPlate01Static". You'll see that the "Mode" is empty; click on "Edit". In the "ModelData" window that opens, you'll see that the "Model File Name" is also empty; click on "Edit" again. An Explorer window will open. -------oOo------- Important note: Make sure you have an existing "Meshes" folder in your Data directory; if it doesn't exist, create it. -------oOo------- In the Explorer window, paste the file name and click on "Open". Your new static object has now a model. Click on "OK" in the "Model Data" window. Click on "OK". Your new static object is now complete and you can put it wherever you want in the world.

    What does this mod do?
  18. Hi @Seraphiel It's only now that I notice that you have ported your mod to the special edition. It's a pity you didn't upload it here. For those interested, here is the new version: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/1842/? Thank you!

    Hi @taliessin and welcome to TES Alliance. Unfortunately, the process you start when you press the "E" key is handled by the game engine which means that you cannot access the scripts in the CK to make changes. I think you would have more chances with that by actually using packages added to your follower. You should download followers mods that already exist, some of them let the followers use beds, and study how they were done. I cannot help more on this, sorry.
  21. You must generate the lod, it doesn't come by itself. When you have finished your world space, use my tutorial and the files that go with it, it's working for both the original and the special editions as long as you use the CK for the original edition:
  22. Mess? I just unplug the Ethernet cable and re plug it afterwards. Very simple move actually; the cable is 5 cm on the left of my left hand.
  23. Ever since the last update, opening several instances of the ck has become impossible. I found a work around though that I'm happy to share with you. First, open the SkyrimEditor.ini you'll find in C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim, and, if it's not already there, add the following line in the [General] section: bAllowMultipleEditors=1Then: 1) launch the ck, 2) once the ck is fully launched (no need to load a plugin), open the Windows task manager (C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe) and go to the "process" tab, 3) locate "Steam.exe *32", select it, and click on the button "End Process" at the bottom right of the window (or right click on Steam.exe *32 and select "End Process" in the menu, or punch the e key). Steam will close but the ck will remain open. 4) launch the ck again. On opening, Steam won't notice that there is already an instance of the ck running and here you go!
  24. What command did you use to access the world space? I used coc southreachfortress from the load menu. I didn't load a save, my game was modded and I tested it with Skyrim Special Edition; the picture was made in that edition.
  25. The problem might be with the rest of your plugin; you gave me only the world space, not the rest.
