    Why donr you just.... return it? Seriously. Or if you bought it frfrom someone, demand refund and send it bback.
    I bought the game off Ebay, and it was said to be brand new and perfect, other than the CD key sticker had been removed. We contacted the guy and demanded a refund, he said no, so we figured we might as well give him a bad report for selling a item that is completely useless and unusable. (Unless of course I somehow found an almost non-existant, working CD Keygen or a disc modifying crack)
    Yay for that guy, because 3 bad reports and you get banned from selling for a quite a while

    edit: Goddamnit Pagekings I don't want to draw attention.
    Anyway, my dad was lucky enough to get a nice raise on his job (Since he's worked there for over 20 years) and said that by Monday he'll have a brand new copy waiting for me when I go back to his place for the week.

    You can snip and repost under my post if you want, and also great for you guys. Skyrim should keep you busy for a while when you get it.

    I wish there was more stuff like that. I've heard Morrowind was actually quite creepy, but I don't see any of that in Oblivion or Skyrim.

    How did you pay? if you used PayPal you could just lodge a dispute and they'd give you your money back straight away most likely (PayPal is quite heavily skewed against the seller)

    it takes up huge amounts of space for just some improved textures, and many textures are still awful. And once you've downloaded it you can't delete it, so it's just a waste of space.
    but i guess it's too late now, you already started the download.

    The escapist Article posted:
    The second one expands upon the Weynon stones. The guy figured out that the Thalmor are trying to erase mankind from existence, and the things that are stopping them are the eight towers:

    Crystal Tower

    Red Tower

    Tree-sap

    Orchalc

    Khajiit

    all of which were destroyed or deactivated. The most significant and only remaining one are the Brass Tower and Snow-Throat, or the Throat of the World. The Brass Tower was cast out of time. The tower may have a spiritual connection with Numidium, the brass god, and the disappearance of the tower and therefore Numidium may tie in with the disappearance of the Dwemer. Snow Throat is the only active one. Each of these towers have stones which bind them to Nirn, and the theorist concluded that the Weynon Stones bound Snow Throat. This is why the Thalmor have been waging war on Skyrim; so they can destroy Snow Throat or the Weynon Stones, either way destroying the last tower and wiping mankind from existence.
    Looks like I have some lore reading to do.

    What creeps me out is that I love using that look tool on random items to see the art assets they used, I never once noticed this on the two jars I had.

    I even wondered why they aren't used in any alchemical recipes. I am pretty sure this was intentional and is probably a hint about DLC along with that path to Morrowind that's way too detailed.

    I love how much lore were implemented in them; they are written in a language I can't remember what is and now they are even connected to the lore behind the Thalmor whereas they were restricted by something possibly connected to Numidium. I might just forgive Bethesda for still making such complex lore in which you have to really dig into to see what is really going on.

    Edited:

    You obviously know by now aswell that if you reply to me i'm going to reply back, why don't you ignore me, just don't reply to my posts and keep your opinion to yourself rather than telling me it.

    Anyway that skyrim doomsday thing with the bugs sounds like something from a creepypasta, would be interesting to make a mod based off of it though.

    I watched this after that horrid NCIS thing, I found it funny at the end.

    I just re-dled skyrim after a long break where I was playing ME3 multiplayer a lot and I was wondering if there are any good mods that add new factions or long quest-lines to the game.

    Does anyone know crash fixes for Skyrim since the 1.5 update? I crash on fast travel, while waiting, while sleeping, and usually just end up crashing after about 5 minutes if I can avoid those.

    My performance has also dropped significantly. I used to be able to run at 50 FPS with the high-res texture pack, and now I'm at 15 - 20 FPS.

    I'm still working on my enb settings. Going to make it less colourful from the previous screenshots I posted. At least in the daytime. Dawn and dusk should be colourful. Night should be a little more desaturated than dusk, but not as much as day. Lighting changes, colour changes, etc...

    No images this time, maybe tomorrow after more testing tonight.

    Lighting isn't that bad, but shadows are a main thing for me, not enough dynamic lighting, and have you ever gotten a good close look at the textures? They're all mucked up and too low res for a modern game imo.

    it all looks a bit too grey and grainy for me

    I mean, I get that an arctic wasteland isn't going to have a huge amount of colour diversity, but you'd expect a mystical enchanted forest not to look like a cut Gears of War level

    Try combining alchemy and pickpocketing. It is actually quite satisfying to make someone fall over jjust by touching his ass or ripping out the heart of a demon and instantly kill it.

    Those spring-loaded wall-spike traps are jolly good fun. Especially with the deadlier traps mod. Unless you're paying attention, you'll end up flying across the room and getting your head stuck in a wall before you even shit your pants.

    Towers of Nirn =/= actual towers in this case. They are more like divine connections that bind the world together, and usually look like natural wonders rather than man-made ones.

    I.E. the Throat of the World (the actual mountain itself) is one such tower, which is partly why you can experience such a break in time    at the top of it with the elder scroll.   

    He also mentions Numidium as the brass tower but... I don't think he really counts seeing as he wasn't a real god or anything, he just used the heart of a dead god to power his giant brass ass.

    Not sure what/where all the other "towers" are.
