Thank you for the link for the Textures Optimized mod Arwen, but the download file is big, the author has put all the textures in one pack. As i am certain my system would only handle the standalone 1024 res textures and will not be using the official texture pack, this is all i need. I live on my boat and use a Doggle for Wi Fi connection, so with the Nexus site having had so many problems with increased traffic due to release of Dawnguard my connection will lock up. Large file downloads are a risk at the moment from Nexus, i can not pause the download as the Nexus site seems to lose the restarting information. As i am paying £10 per 1GB downloaded it ends up being expensive! So any mod i download from Nexus which is large i sit waiting with fingers crossed!
Glad to hear that you have Skyrim sorted, it is really frustrating when you think you have the game sorted, but a few hours later it pops up a error, i seem to spend most of my time backing up!
Found a excellent little mod i just started using called Better Quest Objectives, it gives a more descriptive message to the various quests you are on. It really increases the atmosphere of the game and makes you want to read all the messages, i highly recommend it.
Off Topic: Crikey! That's along time to build a Kayak, i have just rebuilt a 35 foot boat in six weeks for a customer, and it was outside. We have had the wettest year on record so far, some places have had a month of rain in a matter of a few hours. A week ago we had flash floods all over the country, with whole towns cut off. It's due to the Jet Stream which is too far south for this time of year, so storm fronts keep sweeping in from the West. Last night i sat on the stern of my Sloop and watched an amazing lightning storm streaking all around the hills alongside the river Dart, then remembered i had a large metal mast as a lightning conductor so started praying!!
Was going to sort out my new 3.2m tender, and 8hp engine today.Then take a trip upriver to Dittisham to have lunch and a couple of jars, but its pouring with rain so postponed that. Will mod Skyrim a bit more, and listen to the Olympics on radio 5 live instead. The Olympics have been amazing, the atmosphere around the country has been incredible, have you watched any? I was going to watch the sailing up the coast at Weymouth, but did not have enough free time.
Hope you enjoy your new Kayak, and that Obama gets re elected. Really like the guy, i have to admit i was overcome with emotion when he gave his acceptance speech in front of huge crowds in Washington. I do not like Mitt Romney, would not trust him as far as i could throw him.
Oh! suns come out may change my plans.
All the best. Ben.
