So I wanted to let you all know I am not dead! Ya... so about why I have not been here...
Well, first I built a new PC, even did a couple of videos with it, but then I learned my SLI was not working properly. After MUCH troubleshooting and RMA shit I had finally gotten it to work, only to have the backup drive I had Skyrim on go FUCKOFF. So I had to start from last backups, AGAIN.
THEN I did one video on Twitch only to learn there was nudity that was reported, MALE NUDITY
Hey guys, finally got everything set up! Got everything built only to find my upload speeds didn't hold up to Twitch standards ( by a long shot ) so I had to upgrade my internet package then wait a week for the new modem to come.Everything is set up and working fine. My new YouTube channel is also up and running, with my first twitch Live Stream ( of Skyrim ofc ) uploaded to it. I made a new one since now that I'm ready to do live stream / recordings / reviews of ALL games, not just Skyrim, I di

Blog so I will share a bit more :
Still can't really mod. Those shots are taken at like a 8 fps frame rate. I can't do much without fear of the computer exploding. GOOD NEWS however, State Tax returns this year is over 2k$+ , due to thankfull things, and all the money has been promised to me for building a new computer.
Soon my pretties, soon . . . .
So yeah! Some asshole pisses me off and steals my shit and because of it you guy get a blog update!
SO ya, as I told you guys 2 months or so ago, I would NOT be around this summer ( in the USA ) due to 3 factors:
1) My wife has a new WELL paying Union Job but has to work 1pm to 1am. This leads to 2...
2) My kids didn't get to go to the Jersey shore and be with my sister this summer like they do every year ( she had her own damn problems, OK?! ). As a Stay At Home
Good new everyone!
So I've just had TO much shit in my Skyrim install. My game has been running like ASS and started a near infinite C++ and or CTD problem. I've installed and uninstalled so many things I knew it was my own damn fault, SO MANY LOOSE SCRIPTS. Plus, my computer is not all that great, something I've never told you guys and if you watch my Let's Play you would be AMAZED when I told you what I was actually running my Skyrim on lol ( hardware wise ).
So Anyway, I made a backup
So.... a blog entry about my actual MODS and updates about them and not me on a late night drinking binge trash talking things I don't like?! Who woulda thought!
Anyway, as some of you may know I've taken the Summer off from modding. Not really because I wanted to, but I didn't have much choice when the Summer first started. Things are a LOT better now, my wife getting laid off ended up hurting us for a little while, but life can be sneaky sometimes, and now she has not only found a new job,
I want to preface this entry with this : I LOVE LL. I HATE NEXUS. Are we clear? I hope so, I don't want to repeat myself. Anyway, I have some rants that have been on my mind lately....
Why is there a GENERAL, NON ADULT and ADULT section of LL? FFS we all know why we are here. Let's not lie to OURSELVES about it. I bring this up because in the GENERAL discussion section of Skyrim on LL, I see more porn then I ever would actually LOOKING for it online. The show your Skyrim counterpart thread o
So I'm gonna post an update for those who follow this blog :
So we are SO not done. We actually have a lot of stuff in the works right now. My wife and I plan on making an upcoming video highlighting some of the new stuff ( one of my Sneak Peak Videos ). know however, for the first time, there is a lot of stuff coming that I had nothing to do with! This is actually a great thing you guys, as it means I can work on one thing while others work on something else and you get it all!
So my wife and I are actually still doing things. We have 3 30 minute Let's Play's all shot and ready for editing. Everything about it has changed, they are short, I don't drone on but just PLAY THE GAME, all mods are working just fine, etc.
These videos get to highlight some neat stuff for Skyrim players, things I have done they might really wonder about. My game is so changed and in so many ways I always wanted to share it with players, so I am going to start doing that.
Stay tuned, i
Not sure where to start. Finally got EVERYTHING working right after a complete windows re install a little while back. This includes FRAPS, all my multi sound options ( you think it is easy setting up a single PC to both export all sounds to TWO different headphones AND record from two different mics in unison while neither steps on one another in the same video recording? It's NOT ), AND I'm done with Goddess / v7.2 of Celestials....
So now what?
Should I go ahead and reboot my Skyrim "
So have not made an entry in a while. My bad, things have been a little hectic around here the last few months. Anyway I'm back on Track(ish). Some stuff that I HAVE been working on that WILL be coming :
Animation Pack : after being asked about animations more then anything else on my videos, I told myself to get this out. So I did.
Celestials v7.2 ( includes the Summons and the Goddess. Goddess is not just the form, she is a fightable NPC with her own Lair ). This is VERY close to being
So someone want to explain to me what I am doing wrong when trying to attach a Poll to a Blog entry? It never shows up.
I can create intricate mods, write script, manipulate textures, etc, but I can't figure out how to attach a POLL to a fucking blog entry?
Getting old sucks.
I am uploading a new release of Celestials ( v7.1) as I type this. It comes in 3 parts since it is about 280 megs and LL only lets me upload 100 meg files at a time, so you will need all 3 parts to use it.
*** FUN FACT ***
If I want to include *EVERYTHING* I have done it would amount to ABOUT 4 GIGS worth of shit. Dawnguard alone is only 1.1 gigs. Think about it.
I will no longer be using any other outside download source for Celestials other then LL.
The craftable armors will be b
Bleh. I hate being sick. So ya, I caught the Flu and have been in bed most all the past week. Not some little ladeeda flu, nope, full on fever / vomiting / coughing / sneezing / fuck you flu. It never ends.
So my wife, being the wonderful lady she is, thought to make me feel better she would get me ( and her as well ) a game I've wanted for a while now but we just didn't have the cash for, Guild Wars 2. This is both awesome, because I've really wanted to play it and now I can, and bad, becau
I've had less and less time lately to work on modding, but I thought I would share a little something something I've been working on that will be released " soon ". It's a Serana Mod. She comes with a brand new outfit, one that I converted to use the new Celestial Body, and her looks have been completely redone by myself. I personally think she looks great, though others may disagree. Anyway, below is a quick pic I took while running through Dawnguard I thought I would share. Let me know what yo
So I have not posted anything in some time now. I was working on videos and all that but well...
So ya, my father died. He died a day before Seraphim's ( my daughter ) birthday. So he died, then there was my kids birthday, then there was Christmas, then there was well, now.
So ya, Celestial's has been set back a ways. I should not have to explain why.
I named this blog post backwards because I LIKE being the bearer of bad news, so FUCK YOU.
SOOOO, the ugly :
The ugly is, I can't get the look and level overhaul I have been posting pics on to work. It's going to break your game. Note : I didn't do it. See, I think I mentioned I had the original idea, and started building the mod, off of a mod I had downloaded off of 3dmGames called SweetSkyrim by HR. Now I LOOOOOOVED some of the original NPC designs HR came up with, so much so I wanted
So I finished shooting and editing the first episode of Let's Play Skyrim - Shaydow's Skyrim. I broke it into 2 parts, part 1 we review the mods that we will be using at the start of the game, and in part 2 we start a new game and go to the end of Helgen Keep. The whole episode is almost an hour and 20 minutes long.
So I still need to render it, then upload the whole thing. That will take some time. I don't know how many people are going to be interested in Episode 1, but in Episode 2 I pla
Let me know what you guys think of it. While short, I wanted to give visitors a quick idea of what my mods are all about. Longer more in depth videos will be coming soon.
I'll start the first episode sometime this weekend if my kids go to their Nana's house. I would have started it earlier, but my kids haven't had school the past two days due to weather.
Heh so the other day I shot about 15 clips for the video I was going to make. Was going to splice them together then add commentary over it. Went to work on it today only to realize that while shooting the clips, my damn mic was on! Doh, so ya they are all ruined, unless you want to hear me coughing, talking to myself, scratching my ass, etc.
So I decided to hell with it, and I'm just going to start on my " Let's Play " type video series. I will be calling it Shaydow's Skyrim, and I will be
So I've been reworking the ENB I shared on this blog a little while back. Hence why it was never released. On the advice of some testers, I've toned down the colors to not be so " vibrant ", so grass is green but not "popping" green, and completely re hauled the DoF ( depth of field ). I've always felt personally that most DoF's in Custom ENBs are either WAAAAY to strong, or built only for people who play in 1st person. As a 3rd person player, I never used them simply because they didn't really
So as some of you who follow my work \ youtube channel may know, I recently decided to make my videos a bit nicer. My first step was to just learn how to splice the video together and do transitions and swipes, something you can see in the last 2 videos I posted. Well today I worked on adding Audio into it. Not just audio from say music, or sound clips, but my own voice, and not just MY own voice, but I also learned how to make it so both myself and my wife could comment in real time on my video
Thought I would share some screen caps of my adventures while play testing multiple mods. Some of these are older and I hadn't shared them yet, a lot of them are from me doing the thieves guild quest line the last 2 days.
Enjoy, and remember this is still a HEAVY Work In Progress.
So I have not updated or said much in the last few days. Not really much to say. Still building v7, as well as working on the new body and trying to get all the old armors and forms to work with it. The Celestial Dream Set will not be done, since it had a base of UNP and I included it in Celestials v6 for people who like that body type.
On that note however, I'm REALLY pleased with the new Celestial Body. I had some more tools to work with this time, and I also took the time to really f
