Thank You

First of all, let me start by saying that I am neither dying, nor quitting modding not dying, and I’m not quitting modding either. It just seems to me that after 2 years of Skyrim modding (and year or two before that with other games) it was about time I just stopped and said thank you.

So, like I said, it’s been roughly 2 years now since I started modding Skyrim. I don’t keep track of anniversaries, so I can’t say for sure when the exact dates were, but in that time, a lot of people have supported me, and helped me out, and I just wanted to say some thankyous, both to specific people and communities as a whole. I have no idea how to go about this, so I’m just going to mention people or communities as they come to mind.

  • HoneyVanity and Eiries, who will pretty much always be first on one of these lists: Thanks to you guys for constantly inspiring me, helping me out, and just generally always being support when I need it.
  • /tesg/ Sweetroll Edition steam group: For being a nice place to hang out and also to rant when I’m getting mad at the CK.
  • /tesg/: I know you guys don’t like me, but I like you, and I’m grateful for the help and support some of you have provided over time.
  • Dem Waifus: Similarly to /tesg/se, a cool place with cool and helpful people.
  • Bohan: Recipient of half the angry rants I make, and just generally a helpful individual, and a cool guy.
  • Novajam: Recipient of the other half. Best mod tester ever.
  • Xenoziel: My biggest fanboy. Yup yup.
  • Fyurifakku: Come back. ;_;
  • Guardly: tesgeneral.com owner, and a big supporter.
  • Shippin: The only modder who ever supported my body mods. You have no idea how much I appreciate THAT. It’s nice to not be the only one converting outfits for them.
  • Dragonporn: One of my biggest supporters, and soleley responsible for popularising a lot of my mods. Many thanks.
  • LoversLab: Probably one of my biggest supporting communities. I know that you guys use my pose mods and the aether suite a hell of a lot, and you also produce some fantastic mods. You have modders like Aradia and Belisario doing various amazing works in the community as well. I appreciate the work you all put in, and I appreciate the support for my mods.
  • Everyone whose outfits I’ve converted: Thank you for either giving me permissions, or providing open permissions on your mods. You are the best kind of modders.
  • tumblr’s Skyrim community: A bunch of very awesome folks who make some great mods and take some amazing screenshots. I appreciate the mods, and I appreciate the support.
  • shadowofdrox/InsanityMan: Creator of some of the most unique and often inspiring screenshots around, and an all round stand up guy.
  • Brave Mustaine: Most awesome GM ever, plus I totally ripped off one of his characters.
  • The Nexus: This is a generalisation. There are a lot of people and things I don’t like about the nexus and its community, but it also houses some stand up folks, and some amazing modders, without whom the whole Skyrim community would be lost.
  • fore: He made FNIS. If I didn’t thank the guy who made my most popular mod possible, I’d be a pretty shitty person. FNIS is an amazing tool, made by a total genius.
  • Boris Vorontsov: ENB creator. Certifiable genius. The reason Skyrim screenshots look so reel.
  • Everyone whose mods I host: Thank you for making mods, and thank you for trusting me to host them.
  • dimon99: Creator of UNP, which I eventually turned into UNPCM… after a hell of a lot of modification.
  • Sims hair modders: Unwitting providers of most of the hair mods us Skyrim players use. Whether you gave your permission or not, I still think you should be thanked.
  • AND MY DONATORS, WHO I ALMOST FORGOT TO MENTION, LIKE A DOUCHE: You guys on occasion help me to pay for this blog, and I most definitely appreciate the help.

Those are some folks I specifically wanted to name, but I also want to thank everyone else. I know there might be some of you out there wondering why I didn’t name you specifically, and honestly, it’s because if I named everyone ever, I’d probably be here for the next 6 to 8 hours. However, I also want to thank everyone who visits my blog and uses my mods. I appreciate all of your support, and I am grateful that you enjoy my work. Waking up and finding a nice comment on my blog makes my day a little better from the start.

Okay… so that was a bit gushy, but it’s important to just say thank you sometimes.

Halo.

Edit: Added a few more lines I felt needed to be added.

Thank You!

Many thanks to recent donators, Guardly (tesgeneral.com), tetrodoxin, and others! Your help is much appreciated.

Please contact me here or on the nexus if you wish your names (or screen names) to be published. The amounts will not be published.

Halo.

This is just a forewarning for anyone who might be worried my blog has died and gone to modding heaven, over the next week.

At some undefined point in the coming week, the blog will be moving to a new server.

All going well, this switch will take mere minutes, and you shouldn’t notice any issues. However, it’s entirely possible that the blog will be down for 24 hours or more, allowing for unforseen issues.

So if you run into any broken links that link to my site, or if you come visiting and find nothing at the end of the rainbow, fear not. The blog is not gone, merely taking a vacation while its admin runs around like a headless chicken trying to get it up and running again.

Halo.

Since I moved my mods off of the nexus, some weeks ago now, I’ve seen a gradual build up of assumption and misinformation relating to the subject. Aside from the fact that I didn’t even realise it was a subject worth talking about, I’ve noticed a great deal of the things I’ve seen are wrong.

Part of that is my own fault, since my opening post here seems to have given the impression somewhat that I had “ragequit” the nexus. This is not the case.

I was pretty content to ignore the matter, but I was recently linked to this little gem: http://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/topic/935775-orkreload-formal-warning-issued/

In the link I noted that the mod who issued this warning was under the impression that the user in question a: didn’t have permission to upload my files and b: I have expressly forbidden the uploading of my files to the nexus. Neither of these things are true.

First, I’ll say that this is my current, and likely permanent permissions message:

You have my full permission to reuse any part of my original material in your own mods. You also have my full permission to redistribute and reupload my mods. Just make sure you give me credit.

Also, and this part is very important: YOU MAY DISREGARD ANY NOTE IN MY READMES PROHIBITING UPLOAD TO SKYRIM NEXUS. You ARE ALLOWED to upload mods to Skyrim nexus, no matter what the mod is. I would, however, recommend caution in your choices, since some mods may contain things which can’t be uploaded there due to nexus rules, and not my own distribution permissions.

And for further clarification, that message means you can upload any version of any mod I have made, and I will not take issue with it. Once it’s on your PC, it’s yours to do with as you will. All I ask is a little credit.

On top of all of that, orkreload even asked permission personally.

 

Outside of that, I wanted to clear up some things about why I made my own mod blog. My first post here was mostly meant in a light hearted tone. I didn’t ragequit the nexus in any way. I simply decided to move my mods and all my work to a single repository. The reason for this is that I have a large number of mods, and I was only able to host a portion of them on the nexus, and I also didn’t keep them all up to date, for one reason or another. I felt the urge to consolidate all my work in one single place, where rules and regulations didn’t inhibit my choice of files to upload.

Finally, relating to loremongering etc. while it did contribute to my choice to move to an out of the way blog, it was more to avoid unnecessary confrontations. As I said in my first post here, if someone has come to this blog, it’s because they want to look at my mods, and not because my mods got in the way of their browsing pleasure. It seemed like the ideal solution to all my issues, and that’s what instigated the move.

Hopefully, for anyone who was unsure, or who had misunderstood my reasons, this will clear some things up, and will also prevent unwarranted punishment on the nexus, in future.

And now that srsfaec post is done, I will go and mod something!

Halo.

Sometimes…

v0.7

…just sometimes, it’s all worth while.

That, friends, is the Velvet Room. It’s velvety, and roomlike.

It’s also blue.

And did I mention velvety?

Welcome

After some time talking about it, I’ve finally decided to move all my mods to one single repository.

For those of you wondering why the change, the simple reason is that anyone here is here looking specifically for my mods, and I don’t have to worry about who my mod does or doesn’t appeal to, and most importantly, I can tell people who want to bitch about my “stupid anime style poses” to fuck off without getting banned! :D

As time goes on, I may begin to use this as a general modding blog, but for the moment I am simply focusing on populating the pages with my already created mods.

Enjoy the piles of crap!

Halo.

P.S. Keeps eyes open on the conversions section. Once I’m done with previously released mods, I’ll be moving on to releasing some other conversions I’ve done for personal use.
