About this blog

My pretty inordinate collection of ideas on Skyrim mods and probable mods-to-be.

... of course oriented to the LL side of life :classic_tongue:

Patchwork: Integrating Mator's MergePlugins in ModOrganizer2

Patchwork: Integrating Mator's MergePlugins in ModOrganizer2

TLDR: Mator's MergePlugins tool was reportedly unable to integrate into ModOrganizer2. This can be mitigated with a few manual steps.   The steps (I assume an underlying  W10 operating system here. Similar solutions are likely to work for other OS as well.)   1. Installation 1.1 install MO2 as usual 1.2 install MP as usual   2. Preparing MO2 2.1 register MP as a usual tool in MO2, like you did with MO1 2.2 IF you have moved your profiles fol

Patchwork: Updating Apropos2 Text DB with MO1

Patchwork: Updating Apropos2 Text DB with MO1

TLDR; Howto update the Apropos2 Text DB with Mod Organizer 1 (MO1)   We start with my left pane: To begin with, I have the main Apropos2 mod at position #311 and at #312 my old Apropos2 Text DB in the 0.5.9 version. You can see, that I took the liberty to rename the mods.   Let's select it and have a detailed look:   We have the "Apropos DB" tree inside the main mod   That's exactly what the "DB Update" is

Black Book: CK-Fu - giving NPCs a realistic daily AI routine

Black Book: CK-Fu - giving NPCs a realistic daily AI routine

TLDR; NPCs in mods either just stand around or use a simple Sandboxpackage. But we have easy ways to add more immersive AI behaviour, without spending too much time on it. I show you one concept to it.     The setting I have a small settlement, some NPCs with their random virtual lives and as long as no quest is running, they are supposed to simulate a lively village to the player. That demands for a few idle markers and believable AI packages. But this can be a demandin

Black Book: CK-Fu - my notes to the ultimate martial art of using the creationkit

Curiosity: How does it work? Things, I need to learn in the CK

Ship Yard: Patching Triss Merigold (mod)

TLDR; My own patch for imAarwyns great mod Triss Merigold   This work in progress is a patch for imAarwyn's great mod Triss Mergold from The Witcher universe. (Triss Merigold The Witcher Voiced Standalone Follower CBBE)   Unfortunately RL is limiting her ambitions to move this mod a step further. So, I experimented a bit to add or change a few things for my personal taste. Right now, I am thinking to be ready for others to test my little patch. If it works, I will publis

TLDR: Which tools do I use, how do I mod or fix my Skyrim and how do I manage my mods?   Just for completeness, I add my collection of modding tools to this blog. This includes the tools that I use as an enthusiastic  player with far beyond 350 mods in my main games and on the other hand the tools that I use as an aspiring (but still bloody noice) mod creator   Tools as a player Mod Organizer 1 = my main tool to get my profiles and vast amount of mods under control

Window peeking: Or HOW do I learn to love the Creation Kit?

Window peeking: Or HOW do I learn to love the Creation Kit?

6 years of playing Skyrim and the single one thing I detest most is the Creation Kit. ?   But enough is enough and time has come for me to shift my attitude, to learn it and to love it. And I have a rather huge list of things, that I would like to see in Skyrim. So the CK is not my destination but just the rough path to it.   Where do I start? Well, my idea is to start (again) by watching what some tutorials can have for me or by reading them - all with the intention to

Curiosity: Troubled spots in Skyrim - Part 1 - Whiterun

Curiosity: Troubled spots in Skyrim - Part 1 - Whiterun

Years of modding have left us with many occupied locations on a much too small map of Skyrim.   Big question is always: WHERE CAN I PLACE MY NEW MOD?   So, let's start with what I know myself. I created a quick scratchmap with locations that are occupied by mods of my current game. I will post probably more cities as I stumble upon them. But for sure I will update this article and replace the map with a better one!   Part 1: Whiterun   Red

Word bubble: Things I want to do next [my LL todo list]

TLDR: We need guides, howtos, walkthroughs for many many mods here .... but don't have them. I intend to help.   This here is my own little helper to get me focussed for that. So it is important to me, but probably boring for most others. Of course I can only write for mods, that I have and use. I'll add my list later here. If you feel another mod could use a howto, just comment.   My current ideas and priorities for guides and how-tos Radiant Prostitution/Gigolo h

Flower basket:A brothel in Whiterun

Since it was asked, I made some screenshots whithin the brothel in Whiterun's labor district. It's from the mod "Whiterun Expansion_ Alternative Entrance" and can be downloaded from the Nexus : https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/37403 I just checked and the mod's author is still alive (last login end of april 2018) although he/she seems not to be responding to his own mod thread anymore.   Excuse the lack of colors and vibrance, but I still have my usual dim light effects

Flower basket: Dreaming of Elisif the Fair

We've got a great mod here on LL and over the trench hat Nexus: Amorous Adventures, created by the grandmaster(ess?) of romance @FoxFingers. In this mod, FF has gifted us the opportunity to romance the lonely beauty Elisif  ... and if I got it right, we might get a bit more adventure with her in the next update Edit: Hooray! We can embark on a romantic voyage with her   I ask you: Who can romance a queen? No, not a random next-village farmer's daughter. A queen!

Think tank: new mod idea "Devious & Naughty jurisdiction in Skyrim"

TLDR: Skyrim has crime, bounties, prisons (especially with mods) but it lacks a proper court or tribunal, where the player has to answer the charges.
