That was the best thing about Oblivion, all the mods that turned it into a giant hentai game. See, for a hentai game I can tolerate inane, awful character building and terrible gameplay, cuz like, those things aren't the point of the game.

I homo-eroticized the hell out of Dragon Age 2, so that's a future benefit of not picking up Skyrim for awhile.
Just to follow up on my last post, game runs fine on i3/GT460, 1920x1080. I'm not super sensitive to frame rate and I didn't bother Frapping it, but Skyrim never chugged indoors or out on medium-highish settings. And if Skyrim ain't running a Gamebryo engine with the knobs turned up to a 11 and a few dents buffed out, I'll eat my keyboard. Cryengine 2/Frostbyte 2 engine this ain't...so everyone with any PC put together in the last 5 years or so should be able to run it fine.
Yea, a weight mod would be very handy. There is some perk to aid you, and you can also equip a bow and keep it strung to walk moderately faster than you would otherwise do, when you are overloaded.
The perk is in pickpocketing, 3 or 4 down. Gives you 100 encumbrance. You can also cast a feather spell.
The game has dragons and fireballs, give me a magic sack or sapient pearwood luggage.
What's the status of cosmetically equipped gear in this game? Can we display different armor than we actually equip, or will I be waiting for a mod for that?
If you have 3-4 FPS to spare doing these couple of tweaks will improve video quality immensely:
1- Drop this into main directory: http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=21
2- Enable FSAA in the SkyrimPrefs.ini
EDIT: Actually no need for point 2, as the file already has FXAA on its own.

Sorry, couldn't resist:
The first one contains about 120 books, the second one contains all the stuff I intend to sell once I can get around to it.
Think I was carrying around 450+ in weight at one point... took a _very_ long time to get anywhere. Since you cant fast travel when encumbered. Oh whell.
For example I'm reading many reports of the game giving worse FPS the longer you play and run around. In fact some users are suggesting tabbing in and out (I guess working like some sort of memory flush).
Streaming worlds still can't work properly if the constant loading/unloading causes FPS to get worse progressively.
Boohohooboo is now officially a QT3 thing.
Anyone else having trouble getting this to work? I can change FOV via the console, but it doesn't seem to work if I add that line to the .ini file.Change field of view
Head to My Documents, select My Games, select Skyrim and then Skyrim again, then create a backup of the skyrim.ini file. Scroll down to [General] in the file and add fdefaultfov=XX (where XX is the field of view you want). Then save and exit.
Here's how it can actually look like: http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/5654/image1av.jpg
Another heritage of Gamebryo: the game relies a lot more on the CPU than the videocard.
That's why it works perfect for a lot of people and like shit for others. A good CPU will make it smooth even if the videocard isn't new.
Especially in towns it will be the CPU the bottleneck.
Runs great on my E8400. I'm sure some folks are running Skyrim on CPUs a bit older than this but you'd think they'd be used to throttling the graphics down some by now.
Triggercut, I must have done that purely by accident when I started the game. Because since the the first time I set the FOV to 90 it hasn't changed.
You will not disable vsync if you add that line to skyrimprefs.ini
My FOV keeps going back to default. Not sure when it happens (death, reloads, what). I've tried both an INI tweak and the console command. I also noticed that SkyrimPrefs.ini is in two locations - one in My Games, one in Steam. Does the Steam one constantly overwrite the other?
According to Reddit: It seems to be fast travel that resets the FOV.
