  1. ESO Skyshards

    Version 1.0.1

    0 downloads

    Long ago, during the second era in the time of the Planemeld, adventurers sought out whatever power they could gain to aid in their battle against Molag Bal. Among these items of power were Skyshards, presumably made available by the gods for those who were dedicated to exploring both the hidden and mundane corners of Tamriel. Not much is truly known about them, but in these trying times of dragons and civil war, the Skyshards have once again appeared for the Last Dragonborn to discover and augment his power. ESO Skyshards places several shards throughout the province of Skyrim, including Dawnguard areas and Solstheim. Much like the ones from ESO itself, once you collect 3, you will earn 1 perk point to spend as you see fit. There are 6 in each section, for a total of 66 shards amounting to 22 extra perk points. That may seem like a lot, but by the time you've found them all you'll likely be pretty high level anyway so it balances out in the end. Sorry, beyond the 3 screenshots displayed for the mod, I will not reveal the locations of all of the shards. They do not have map markers either, and there are no plans to provide any. They are located in a mix of easy areas and hard areas so they should prove to be quite a challenge to locate. This mod will go especially well with mods that expand the number of perks you can use as well as perk overhauls that expand the number of points required to obtain perks.
  2. Helarchen Creek

    Version 1.0.2

    6 downloads

    A village in the mountains southeast of the city of Dawnstar. Tamriel has had many villages on maps for as far back as anyone can remember. What happened to them all? Nobody really knows. This mod is simply my take on bringing one back from Elder Scrolls: Arena. Helarchen Creek was a small village in the game somewhere in the mountains near Dawnstar. Originally it appears as though Bethesda planned to put this around the Nightgate Inn, but then changed the name on that and cut the content. Some further research using old Arena maps placed the village further north anyway, so here it is. * Two of the NPCs can be married and will optionally share their homes with you. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
  3. Dolmen Ruins

    Version 1.0.1

    3 downloads

    In 2E 582, Molag Bal launched an all out invasion against Nirn. His aim was to merge Nirn with Coldharbor in a cataclysmic event that came to be known as the Planemeld. This was accomplished through the use of numerous Dark Anchors, or Dolmens, scattered around Tamriel (and presumably elsewhere too) that were to physically drag Nirn into Coldharbor. It was only through the heroic actions of one known as The Vestige that Molag Bal's plans were thwarted and all of Nirn saved from a gruesome end as soulless slaves. Though history does not record these events, the ruins themselves have survived. Adventurers have to this day reported many are guarded by daedra, others by the undead, and some by unnatural abominations of the wilds. This mod aims to bring a bit of ESO lore to Skyrim by adding 12 inactive Dolmens around Skyrim, all in relatively remote areas. This is primarily just for show but several have enemies to fight as well so you can use them to acquire some of the harder to find Daedric ingredients. Explore Skyrim, and you should run into them soon enough. Don't be lazy, go out and look!
  4. Just a heads up. Nexus may have had a security breach. Probably a good idea to go change your passwords.
  5. Version 3.0.8a

    57 downloads

    A comprehensive bugfixing mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Legendary Edition. The goal of the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch (aka USLEEP) is to eventually fix every bug with Skyrim and its 3 DLCs not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package. Warning: Only use the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch with the latest release version of Skyrim patched through Steam! Using it on an older version may cause bugs or things not to be fixed that were advertised as such! It will of course be updated to match each official update, including having fixes removed that are included in official updates. See the full changelog for details.
  6. Shor's Stone

    Version 1.0.2

    22 downloads

    An expansion for the village of Shor's Stone. Shor's Stone always seemed like a place that had more potential than what was in the game, and as it turns out, that's because it does. NPCs talk about Odfel's wrecked house and the need to build a new one, but the wreckage doesn't exist. Grelka has some scenes with the other NPCs that can never play because she never comes to the town, and may well have originally been planned for there. Plus the place always seemed a bit empty, in need of somewhere for the folks to gather at night other than just the fireplace in front of Sylgja's house. Now, all of these things have been taken care of. Shor's Stone is no longer a backwater half-village. * Grelka now has a home at the south end of town. She will travel between there and Riften by horse at the appropriate times. * The Tapped Vein, the inn, where folks gather for the town's evening meal. A subtle tribute to Elder Scrolls Online and the village's past association with Ebony mining. * Inn has a properly working innkeeper, server, and bard. * Odfel's wrecked house now exists on the north side of town. So sad. * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
  7. Is there any way to move the controls for your profile (not the other stuff next to it) up to the non-scrolling area at the top? Oh, and is it not possible to delete a PM? I see no option on the menu anywhere for that.
  8. Dragon Claw Stands View File A simple mod to provide display stands for your dragon claws. People like to display their collectibles in their homes. I am no different, but I've always wanted a way to do the same with the dragon claw keys used on the Nord ruin puzzle doors one they're of no use anymore. It always seemed silly to just toss them in a chest and forget about them since they're among the more unique things about the game. So the idea came up to make a display stand for the claws, but not just any display stand. One that was somewhat unique and fitting with their style and purpose. Thanks to some help from the folks at AFK Mods, this is now a reality Each vanilla player home, as well as the 3 Hearthfire homes, and Severin Manor in Raven Rock, now have display stands in various numbers. Simply have one or more of the claws in your inventory and activate the stand. If you have only one, it will be automatically displayed. If you have more than one, it will ask you which one you want to display, in much the same way the Paragon Gem platform in Falmer Valley does with Paragon Gems. If you should want it back for some reason, simply activate the stand a second time and it will be returned to your inventory. Under the hood, the mod takes the claw from your inventory, puts it into a hidden chest, and then places a clone of it in the visible world. When the claw is removed from the stand, the original copy in the chest is placed into your inventory and the clone is deleted to ensure there is no save bloating from creating multiple claws repeatedly. This is done in case the claw is marked in a quest alias somewhere so that the alias is not disrupted. Not all houses can display every claw due to limited space. Severin Manor is the only one with enough space to hold all 10 in the same cell. The Hearthfire houses split them up between the Main Hall and the basement, and all of the vanilla houses can only hold some. For example, Breezehome only has room for 4, while Proudspire Manor can hold up to 7. The placement of the stands are also tied to certain room upgrades, except for Severin Manor where they all get enabled once the player owns the property. As an added bonus, if other mods add more dragon claws, they can be added to the formlist used to track the vanilla game claws. All they would need is a script to access the formlist and add their base object to that list. The only condition is you would need to be sure the mod added claw is the only one in your inventory when you want to place it. This is due to limitations on how the menu works when asking for a claw. Submitter Arthmoor Submitted 10/08/2015 Category Houses Usage Rights/Permissions

  10. Sort of a moot point with Ars Metallica since it's been Legendary Edition for over a year now There's an unsupported non-DLC version still on Nexus though if you really want it.
  11. Just a quick update for everyone who may be wondering. Internal testing is going well and we look to be on track for an October beta release - or possibly before the end of September if things go really well. We've been able to confidently say that updating mid-game to USLEEP won't have any negative side effects on your saves, which came as a great relief. Major quest lines for the MQ and factions all appear to be working flawlessly as well. We're still keeping an eye out for ol' Murphy though. Everyone here knows he's lurking, cause that's what he does.
  12. Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch [uSLEEP] As many of you may remember, last year around this time we conducted a poll on whether or not it was the right time to consider unifying the unofficial patches into a single package. At the time, about 25% of those who responded to the poll were still in a position where they did not have all 3 DLCs for the game. So we decided against merging everything at that time. Fast forward to today, it's become quite clear that that 25% is far less than it was, and more and more people have been asking when we're going to be doing this. This post is your answer. Shortly after the release of USKP 2.1.3, we will begin the process of unification to merge the vanilla USKP plus all of the DLC patches into one all encompassing mod, which will be known as "Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch", or USLEEP for short. A mouthful, but a catchy acronym. We have decided that the best course of action will be to rename the esp to match the mod's updated name. It will remain an ESP file flagged as an ESM as that makes the process of working on it less of a hassle for us and as has been proven, the game, CK, and existing mod management tools are completely fine with it. We have also verified that switching the ESP name will not cause any scripts modified by the project, or added new to the project, to throw Papyrus errors. The only side effect will be that the retroactive update scripts will all run again. That shouldn't cause any problems though and we'll make sure any scripts manipulating formlists are safeguarded against generating duplicate references in them. The hi-res DLC patch will remain a separate entity as many people do not use it for one reason or another and it's not considered part of the "Legendary Edition" of the game either. We estimate the time needed to do the work of merging everything together and then putting it through testing will take a few months. So we are not anticipating another release for the project between now and November while this work is done. Time commitments to other things are the main reason for this, so we figure giving ourselves enough time for that is prudent. Plus this also gives enough warning ahead of time that we're going forward with this. As many existing issues as we could resolve for the 2.1.3 release cycle have now been cleared from the tracker and any issues remaining that are not feasible to fix have been closed appropriately. Any new issues submitted after this point will need to wait until the unification process is complete before we will even begin to consider touching them. Please, DO report them, just don't expect action for awhile. If it should become necessary (God forbid) for a hotfix to be released before the unification is done, then that will be the ONLY issue that will be addressed and will be handled only in whatever patch it may affect. After the unification process is done, the existing separated patches will no longer receive updates. The files will remain up in their existing entries but will be frozen and the comment threads closed where possible. All future support will be handled on a single file entry for the unified project on each site it is hosted on. Mods which rely on using the USKP/UDGP/UHFP/UDBP are strongly urged to make plans to switch over to the new master file when it's ready. Other mods which import fixes from the unofficial patches are also strongly urged to make sure they are up to date before November. It would also be best if any translated versions of the patches out there get synced up with 2.1.3 so that as many people as possible will have access to them while the unification is underway. We will have a testing release at some point before the unified patch is ready to go live. The usual cautions against using beta copies on saves you intend to keep will apply. That step is going to last no less than a full month so that there's time enough to shake out any bugs that result from the process. ======================== Some of you may also be wondering what this means for my own projects that make use of the unofficial patches as masters. These will all be converted as needed to run using the unified patch file. Post-unification, I will not release mods that rely on the individual patch files. So things like Bring Out Your Dead, Cutting Room Floor, Ars Metallica, and other stuff, will all get taken care of on whatever schedule fits best as the process moves along. In the case of Cutting Room Floor, this will also open the door to adding cut DLC content that's been getting logged to the tracker. So it'll be worth it Once I make these transitions, any old copies relying on the old patch files will be frozen.
  13. Ivarstead

    Version 1.1

    20 downloads

    A simple village expansion for Ivarstead. Ivarstead always seemed like it should be more to me. There are a number of people living in the inn on a permanent basis. While the game indicates it is a village in decline due to fewer and fewer visitors coming through, it's very clear that those who are in the inn now are permanent residents to the village who have fairly strong ties they can't just cut. Since it would have been lame to throw down a bunch of empty or destroyed properties, it felt only right that 3 new houses should be built for those residents to occupy. * Temba Wide-Arm will offer to share her house if married to you. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
  14. Most people don't actually read those things to begin with, but this one only shows up to make you agree upon publication of your first mod there, and on occasions where they tick a box somewhere to make you read it again and agree. A box they didn't tick after changing this back to the old one
  15. Darkwater Crossing

    Version 1.0.6

    19 downloads

    A simple village expansion for Darkwater Crossing. If Darkwater Crossing ever seemed like too many people with nowhere to live were there, you're probably right. It's major enough for Tullius to know about it to set up an ambush for Ulfric, yet there's a single house there where two people live while everyone else sits around a campfire. Not anymore! Three new houses have been added to provide accomodations for the 4 NPCs who had no place to call home. * Sondas Drenim will offer to share his house if married to you. * Derkeethus will offer to share his house if married to you, assuming you haven't recruited him into the Blades. * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
