  1. xD Skyrim has many questionable design decisions, but this is one of those that actually make sense. Since it seems to me you know about programming, I think I can explain you what you are actually doing and why. When creating an app in any normal object-oriented programming language (what Papyrus is kind of) you just create an instance of a class when you need a new object and you are done. Here, you are actually filling an already existing class (to which you have very limited access to) with data loaded from some particular record in some database. The database is the esp file and the record is whatever furniture/actor/spell/etc you want to manipulate. So, when spawning a chair you're actually telling the engine you want to create a new object and load its data from a record in a database. The most hassle-free way for Skyrim to know which record you want to get data from is by using a script property that points to that record. In the example @Andy14 posted, that was done in this line: ObjectReference Property customChairRef Auto But this is only the part that declares the variable that will hold that record reference. To actually assign a value to that variable, you usually open the CK and set the record you want to use as a base for creating your new object. Soooo... tl; dr: Objects in Papyrus aren't classes, but records filled with data the engine uses to fill its internally instantiated objects (I hope I explained that well :S). Those walls of code needed to spawn a miserable chair are the result of the trade-off of letting non-programmers fill a database to develop a full game as soon as possible, instead of hiring an army of programmers that will take more time to make the game, will ask for higher wages and will be even more error prone when filling by hand all the structures needed to create the game. It's way easier to use databases, anyway. Everyone does that for a reason.
  2. Ha! No xD There's no "macho anything" when you hide your weaknesses. It's about being pragmatic. You go try to show weakness to other men or (WAY worse) women and then see how it goes for you xD
  3. Thanks! Then my suspicions were correct. Did you modify some esp record or some script? I have no problem modifying either, btw.
  4. Thanks. Never had problems with that, but I deactivated it to see if it was related to my problem and I still get it. My issue only happens when I sneak. My followers almost always become semitransparent after I get off sneaking mode. Here's a better picture of what is actually happening. It was quite easy to get because it happens all the time.
  5. Hi. I have a question. Does this mod make followers semitransparent when sneaking? I swear some years ago I saw an option to make them like that, but I can't manage to find it anymore (if I'm not incorrectly remembering, that is). My problem is that every single time I enter sneaking I get this: And I want to know if this mod may cause it or if I need to look elsewhere.
  6. View File Delete Orphan Save Files Actually deletes all files with no associated save file. Free many hundreds of MB with by just double-clicking a file. Usage This is a quite simple program I made for myself and doesn't require any kind of configuration or sorcery. Just put it in the folder where all your saves are located and double click to run it. Do that each time you want to delete junk files that are not longer needed but still manage to be creeping around there. It will tell you which files it deleted and how much disk space it freed. Files are outright deleted, not sent to the trash bin. It's not like you are ever using them again, but beware about this fact. I'm aware this is something SSE Engine Fixes is supposed to do, but has never seemed to work for me (yeah, I actually activated that option in the *.toml file). Does this work for LE? Most likely. I suppose orphaned files have the same extensions as the SE ones. Submitter Papitas Submitted 09/14/2021 Category Regular Mods Requires Regular Edition Compatible Yes

  8. OK, you convinced me to use it. I came to make that question, since for some reason all matchmakers usually give me quite a lot of CTDs.
  9. That's why I always like to ask. My mind is full of prejudices, but asking around can give me different valid panoramas outside my own experience. I'm actually one of those :v I've made tons of small and not so small mods/armor conversions that I'm not likely to release because I'm too lazy to write documentation/ask for permisions/dealing with uploads... But if I think it would be a waste to have any of those mods sitting in my own computer without no one using it besides me, I go the extra mile and make it publishable. That last step usually takes MANY moths of work; way many more than it took me to make the mod for myself; that's why I usually don't publish what I do. Sometimes I release them because people give me great ideas I could never thought myself and I end up liking my own mod even more. I don't know if that's a small but noisy minority (most likely, as usual) or a vast majority; but I expect that issue to get worse over the years if we keep using the internet to feed our fragile egos instead of learning awesome things we wouldn't have learned otherwise.
  10. I use Discord for planning raids, coordinate gaming sessions and chat with my friends while playing. I think that was designed for and not as a substitute for forums. I also understand people making small communities around their work, so they get quick feedback. But you hit the nail with this comment. If some mod creator tells me I should subscribe to his server, else I will be invisible to him, I ponder if his work is sooo essential for me that I totally should do that. Turns out, it never is. Fortunately, I'm a small minority xD If more people were as harsh as me (don't do that, kids :P), they would've stopped doing that a long time ago.
  11. Yep. That's when things seem to fail. I haven't tested if there are race menu sliders that fail, but when I'll do my testings I'll start with that. Maybe I should use another NiOverride function or something. I don't know. I've seen OBody and turns out my mod does similar things, I think... at least for NPCs. Have you had reports on HIMBO not working correctly with OBody? How do I contact you once I made my testings? PM, new topic...? Whatever I find in my thorough testings, I will tell you if I was wrong and basically slandering you by doing things wrong on my side xD, or I'll tell you which body morphs are not properly working when dynamically setting them at game time.
  12. I think I already found that xD Not too long ago I asked a mod author sharing an invisible helmets mod if he used some specific method that everyone is using and that lets you equip many helmets at the same time. I think he didn't like the way I asked it or something, because some hours later I found myself kicked out from that thread xD Back to the topic: I won't quote everyone in here, but I do appreciate your insights and thoughts. It lets me get a better picture. Like many of you, I'm not fan of Discord fragmenting everything and making mods harder to track, but I understand why some people would do that. I know about Korean dudes using it for sharing their mods and I understand they do that because they don't like existing platforms and are not willing to pay for hosting. That's understandable. I imagined many would wanted to share illegal things that shouldn't be found on mainstream sites. That's also understandable. But using those mainstream sites to share your content and then tell people there that if they want help they ought to join your chat or go fuck themselves was something I couldn't understand. But yeah... I suppose it's a generational thing combined with fragile egos, short attention spans and unwillingness to investigate things or something. I see many of us are relatively old and are used to use forums and see the value of having an archive with searchable knowledge and a chat for quick troubleshooting; but if you want everything right now and are unable/unwilling to do an investigation, using only chats may be enough for you. By the way, I think those people ego-modding out there are wrong in their assumptions that bigger sites will give them more exposure. It will totally happen if you hit big and people rapidly download your mod in droves, but since there are way too many people sharing their mods as well, you actually have a higher chance of getting drowned in all the noise than being recognized. If you want to be visible all the time, better be a large fish in a small pond
  13. I don't think that's the issue here, because they still upload their mods to All Your Mod Are Belong To Us™. What I found illogical (and the reason I opened this) is that once being in there they closed the comments section and redirect you to their chat instead. Bethesda also pulled that when they closed their forums. I just don't understand what the hell they were thinking.
