    I don't know what you mean by "weak", it was basically "sign the concordiat or literally everyone in your province dies". Anyone who'd refuse such a thing is a psychopath, and aside from that the Emperor hasn't really done anything. So at the very least he cares for his people enough to know the difference between a signature and a couple million people dying.
    I can't be certain, but I remember hearing in the game a few times that Titus Medes II was a fairly weak leader in ways other than just the White-Gold Concordat. However, since I can't really back it up I'll just say that that was my impression of the guy.

       When you actually meet him in the DB questline, he basically just says that you're an assassin, he's an Emperor, and that it's his time to die. Then he just turns around and asks you to make it quick if you don't mind. I don't think a weak leader would face his death in such a calm manner.

    In fact, there's a book about the DB on his desk when you meet him, which would imply that he only realized he was going to get assassinated soon quite recently. He has a remarkably calm exterior for a supposedly weak-willed person.

    That Superl3 ENB looks great, I think I might actually use it. Need to turn down the DoF a bit though, feels like I'm viewing the world through an SLR lens with autofocus.

    I had a thought... wouldn't it be possible to make a game with all of Tamriel, even with modern tech? When you're in one province, the others would just be LOD models of the actual province, and they would be linked up in certain transfer areas, like a small Imperial outpost or something that would have a gate that would transport you to the next area. Then the area you were just in would be shown as an LOD model of itself. So in short, the entire continent wouldn't be rendered all at the same time, but it would include all of the individual areas. Size wouldn't be much of an issue, since skyrim itself is just 6 gigs of HD space.

    How the empire can fight the Thalmor.

    Place the Dovahkinn as Emperor to boost morale, train all troops to use shock spells to drain the magic from thalmor soldiers. The legion soldiers are now 50% more capable of taking down thalmor troops.

    I disagree, simply because that it doesn't necessarily imply strong leadership. If he was a weak or bad leader and realized it, the same thing could have happened.

    The issue isn't the space, it's design. It takes long enough to just create a single city. Think of how long it would take to construct a full continent.

    Perhaps, but at the least he was either smart enough to know that his death was inevitable or courageous enough to face his maker without resistance. Both of those are strong leading characteristics, so he at least had those going for him.

    Does anyone know if there is a mod that gives you a second chance to join the legion even if you have done the stormcloak side, for some reason I remember seeing something like this, I really regret joining the stormcloaks on my first character.

    Well, all we have is what he said to us. He could have wanted to die. Also, if he truly a good leader he would have probably wanted to live. A good leader sees that he is needed to help his people, and wants to stay alive so he can continue to help the people.

    Dying with dignity is not a sign of good leadership. It is a sign of being a man who has made peace with death.

    Are there any mods out there that make it easier to move stuff around? I hate spending 15 minutes to rotate and set down a claw in my display case, only to accidentally nudge it and spend another 15 minutes fixing it.

    Also, the glitch that makes your items fly out of your display cases whenever you reload the game, is there a fix for that yet?

    That's because the game intro was made in such a way that any new player to the game is basically herded into taking the Stormcloak side.

    I sort of went with Empire first because on my first playthrough I didn't realize I could choose Hadvar or Ralof and I kept going with Hadvar. From there the Jarl of Whiterun was a cool dude and even though he was neutral you could tell that he's more inclined to side with the Empire.

    Try deleting mostly everything except for the default Skyrim ESM files in the data folder, then validate game files. The most of the game will already be downloaded.

    I'm pretty sure 90% of people quit the stormcloaks instantly when they got to Windhelm and saw the racial ghetto.

    I sided with them because I was under the impression that since the Imperials wanted me dead for being at the wrong place at the wrong time they were unreasonable dicks. I was completely unaware of how Nords are racist and that the Stormcloaks are trying to make Skyrim into a country full of hate. Every city hates you if you aren't a Nord, especially if you are of the animal species. I was not okay with this. So my new characters are all members of the Legion.

    i like how for some reason in shader mods chromatic abberation is a good thing
    It's like lens flare, it's unrealistic but people expect it due to it being in movies (same as film grain, etc.).

    If real life actually looked like that to people, they should see a doctor.

    Also, I love how it's applied to everything on the screen, but it's not applied to things like water that should actually show it in real life.

    Edit: Also, the massive over use of bokeh, it should really only show from distant light sources, not a spoon from a meter away from the player.

    That would be fun. You have to recruit NPCs to become soldiers and residents in the town, lead an attack on the town(to get rid of the bandits, of course), spend money rebuilding it, etc.

    I would assume it's a clusterfuck of scripts, phased buildings, and other bullshit. However, that can be easily fixed by making the "New Helgen" a city like Whiterun(an interior or whatever). That way you can start from scratch without potentially fucking up the game intro.

    Is there a way to give player races (not the player, but any of the standard humanoid races) the animations/skeletons of a hagraven without being inhumanly stretched/broken?

    It might prove useful for a few NPCs in the Luftahraan project.
