    Aigis will have comments just about everything. Like what the player is wearing:

    Dawnguard Armor (light armor)


    Daedric Armor


    And, of course, she will call you Dragonborn only after the quest Dragon Rising. If you're not Dragonborn, no point on calling you that.

    For those that still play ESO, something interesting is coming:





    Further details:
    Hm, that seems a bit strange that Seyda Neen will look pretty much exactly the fucking same for several era's worth of time without much changing.

    The online map seems to have more land area than Morrowind's. Maybe the ocean levels rose?

    No but like, it's pretty much exactly the same with a few houses missing, like, even down to the building you get out of.

    Doesn't that strike anyone as strange at all given when Elder Scrolls Online is set, all that time afterwards and all they did was add one or two new houses in the Third Era?

    Edited:

    Like, water levels shouldn't be a problem either given magic exists and is lore wise blatantly OP.

    There's not much info about it, but I'd guess it has no room for growing? www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Seyda_Neen

    It has plenty of room, just go over the bridge and continue to make houses, or get a powerful mage to make more land, the water is not something that needs to get in the way, even so, I really never had the feeling like it was the sort of place that was always there.

    Tbh, I really feel like they should have just left it out.

    Yep. Even the people who tried to get into Morrowind post Oblivion or Skyrim and failed horribly due to the combat will still recognize Seyda.

    Even the slab of the romantic one does not use such foul language. Despicable tbh

    On another note, I was talking about it in some Discord and did anyone really think the weapons in Skyrim were unpractical? Sure, they're broader, thicker and overall heavier than they should be, but it's not like some WoW tier shit.

    If anything it felt like it was meant to mirror the Nords themselves, with most weapon designs taking a cue from their own broad outline.

    The only weapon that's truly unpractical are the Daedric ones, anything that's not a hammer/mace is so ridiculously serrated it doesn't look like it'd slice a fella goodly. But then again, that's maybe the point? To cause pain by tearing the dude up instead of killing outright dudes cuz you're an evil demon guy.

    compare handle width to blade width. Those proportions are wack, feels like they might snap. Its like this on almsot all swords.

    Unlisted probably because it got a lot of rabid hate, something you gotta deal with when making videos like these. I recognize that they're impractical but taking into account how Oblivion's weapons were pretty practical minus excessive detailing, to have weapons be like this in Skyrim was an aesthetic choice, and one that works IMO.

    The Better Shaped Weapons mod, the main one that 'fixes' this, is pretty unpopular, atleast compared to the top weapon mods in the Nexus. Which is curious -- if you look at them, they usually have a mix of new pretty realistic weapons, stuff ripped from the Witcher, plus stuff made using Skyrim assets that fall in line with the original aesthetic. I guess the end goal there is not to override Skyrim's aesthetic, but to add onto it, which is why they're popular.

    Yeah I also try to lean towards the more standard materials. Things like Ebony and Dragonbone are fine though. The axes still look HELLA broad. But I guess that's because axes are blunt in the world of Oblivion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    When I think about Skyrim's broad ass weapons this comes to mind. This is impractical as raw dicks, even a real life version of the non-Dragonslayer greatsword is still like trying to hit people with a sharpened I-beam, but it's less about what the weapon would do IRL and how it mirrors the characters wielding them. Skyrim weps = big cuz Nords = big

    I don't recall that video getting a lot of rabid hate. Actually, opening it, it gets no rabid hate.
    Maybe he was worried he'd get sued, or the quality was lower than the standard evolved later.



    Glass should stop being a thing. It was a rare material that IIRC was only found in red mountain. It's also just not a good material for a lot of weapons. Glass wasn't a thing in daggerfall. It's like if amber was found a lot in skyrim. Like it could be a really rare set, like how daedric was in morriwnd, but it's just too common in skyrim.

    Also. Machalite (and corrundum, and quicksilver) changes were pretty dumb. Ebony/Glass not being Wood/glass was well explained. In skyrim, we have a bunch of real shit used wrong, and it's misleading. No doubt some dickhead thought they were being clever when they decided green marble would be a great replacement for a light, translucent,shock absorbant material.

    They should also not make metal bows. Yes, you can make bows out of metal IRL. Certain metals work, and only when in the right shape. Skyrim doesn't do that. It gives us thick metal bows out of materials known for hardness.

    I liked what dagerfall did to some extent. All the metal weapons and armours are just recolours. Somehow more realistic than whatever fuckery skyrim gave us.

    Videos that try to deconstruct things like those often get filled with shitflinging comments from fanboys. When I watched it a while back there were definitely some shitty comments, probably was before they got downvoted though.

    I guess marble swords or metal bows doesn't hit me as hard because there's things like people getting shot through the heart with spikes made out of ice that get to keep walking around. Out of all the potentially stupid shit that can go on ingame, a sword being made out of dongers is not very high up on the list of concerns.

    The designs being more unique isn't necessarily a bad thing. Not like in Oblivion you could mistake an ebony sword for a iron sword, but the differences weren't as radical as they are in Skyrim. Besides it'd be kind of lame to go to the end of a dungeon for the boss chest and all you get is steel sword but neon green and shiny!!!

    Edit: though I do think that Dragonbone is definitely silly as far as the bladed weapons are concerned. Bone can't really have a cutting edge (afaik). It would've been cool if the base of the sword was made out of bone and the edges out of Ebony or Steel or whatever.

    Well to be fair, aside from the stuff you craft, most of it has been sitting in Dwemer ruins for the last few hundred years. It won't be sparkling. Not to mention it's implied that only the Dwemer knew how to make that particular metal so the player being able to make it doesn't exactly make sense.

    I think the problem is the saturation. Compared to other textures in the game, Dwarven ones have some pretty pure colors, and that's before taking into account the constant shader and screen effect changes the game does depending on weather and location.

    The gray fits in a little bit better with Skyrim too.
