For the Explorer in you

I was following a Skyrim thread on /v/ which quickly degenerated into how Bethesda are dumbing down the game. It eventually became a dispute over the compass, or "Magical Compass", that show undiscovered location and a green arrow pointing in the right direction.
An anon linked to a mod that supposedly remove the compass altogether. I had a mod that did that a while ago, but I uninstalled it because It removed the compass completely and I like knowing what direction I'm heading to. Another anon was complaining, almost crying even, that It was impossible to complete quests without the compass because it removes the markers on the map, which is false, at least for the mod I used. I Installed the mod back to prove him it was still possible to use the map and It got me thinking that I still wish I could remove the icons and arrow from the compass but keep the actual compass.
After about two hours of searching in xml files, comparing two mods and Darnui and trying many different things (I'm very bad with scripts) I finally found out how to get the exact result I wanted.

Screensots 2

I decided to use imgur for a while and see how it is. So far I kind of love its speed and UI but I think the thumbnail option is lacking. I can either have huge thumbnails or extremely small one.

Anyway, Here's my most recent screenshots. I don't have a lot of them because I didn't play very much in the last few days. But I started to use OBGE's Bokeh Circle DOF, Thanks to Eiries, and It makes a pretty big difference when compared to Crysis DOF.

Image host

It looks like the image host I'm using decided to be assholes. They started to delete random images in my account for no apparent reasons. Most of them were images of Oblivion. This is very problematic as I now have to find a new image host website that wont delete my images and re link them everywhere I linked to them. Some here, other in forums. I've sent Postimage an email explaining that I quit their service for another one because my images where being deleted.

I will have to find a good image host that allow outside linking and then changelinks everywhere. I'm currently thinking about tinypic, imgur or Flickr.

Sheva Fairytale Update

I am still working on Sheva Fairytale outfit in spare time but it is starting to giving me headache. The problem is with the weighting of the cape. Well, no so much the weighting it self as its behaviour in game. The skirt is also a bit problematic. It stretch if I weight it to the legs, which make it look horrible, but if i don't, legs go through it whenever I go in stealth.
I thought about ditching the cape and hood all together, but they are a full part of this outfit. without it, it wont look the same anymore. So maybe I will leave it but make it a separated item so it can be equipped or not. Currently the cape looks very good with stretched arms, but it clip when in other positions and having your arms stretched out basically never happen unless you use a pose that do it.

Sylvari Head06 (EDIT)

Two days Ago I decided to try out what would my sylvari look with head06. It all started because of these screenshot I had taken.

I felt her chin was too wide, even though it's very thin. So i decided to spend some time trying out Head06 since I kinda love that head.
Her facegen worked surprisingly well even if she looked a bit derpy at first; but it was nothing that couldn't be fixed.

Sheva Fairytale

Recently on /v/ there was someone who pointed to a deviantart page with some 3d model taken from other games and hoped that someone be able to port it to Oblivion. I told that anon that fitting it to the body wasn't very hard and that I could do that in a matter of a few hours or days, depending on the state of the original model but that exporting would probably be another story.

My favorite witch dress is definitely the Demiwitch found in Desuchan's store Abbotsford. But, while it looks good, I didn't think the cross necklace was "witchy" enough.

DSK Pose Image Update

I got DSK Pose 1.4 so I can update from my last post.
I finally found where it came from. I don't know why I couldn't find it before because just searching for DSKPose on google sent me in the right direction. and my DSKPose 1.3 was found on a totally different website.

It's from a Japanese who's blog is right here

Small fix for the Sylvari race

EDIT: This is not needed anymore so I deleted the file.

I was checking something earlier today and found out the the head I packed with the sylvari is not the right one. There are added part to it that were used for a test. This file fix this with the proper head.

Note that if you downloaded the Sylvari before July, You probably don't need this, but it wont break anything if you get it anyway.

Twig Horns

Yesterday I was making a sylvari and decided to play with the tone slider to see what it would looks like. It happened to look very good. But it was missing something.
when I fist made the race, I wanted to give her horns or antlers, but I couldn't find any good one. But As i was browsing my mesh folder, I found a branch or it was a root I don't remember. I decided to try to make horns with it.

I like the result so I decided to share it.

FFT Archer Armor

I spent last night retexturing Ran's FFT Archer Armor.
While I don't think it's one of the best looking armor out there, I was fun to do.

Normally I would only include the textures, but the mesh also had a lot of glossiness, so I reduced it and repacked the full mod.

The armor is in a sack at the top of the monument in the middle of talos plaza.

You can download it here.
