I don't think it would be better. There are some nasty huge bugs introduced to the game without performance increase, so I'd wait untill the next patch.

This makes no sense, but my problems have gone away...

I have had a ton of bugs. Game crashing to desktop often, certain tress and items blue and purple blobs. Audio cutting out at random etc...

Well, I decided to re-roll last night after the steam patch, and created a new toon. 5 hours later I noticed something... No crashes, no graphics bugs, audio is great etc...

It doesn't make any sense to me, because I saved over my old save-game on my original character too, but that character still has frequent crashes etc...

WAT?

Waterfall Diving
So how many waterfalls have you gone over? The first three were complete accidents. On my fourth one I found a treasure chest at the bottom with really good loot in it. Now I am taking the aqua HOV lane throughout Skyrim.

Dragon Riding
How many of you have jumped on the head of a dragon; rode it; to kill it? I have done it twice. Not quite sure how. I like to get in close and personal with my dual maces when I fight my opponents. I always come in from the side and attach the head. The next thing I know I am riding on top. The dragon never left the ground. It just waved its head around as I was on it. I took screen shots but I do not know how to post them.

well the steam workshop seems to be one good thing coming out of having to put up with steam for a sp game.

Though re-reading the whole thing I get the feeling this might not work out that well with steam regulating the choice of mods, I think I'd rather stick with nexus and wrye bash.

WAT?
Doesn't sound that odd though. Some big mods for Fallout 3/NV and Oblivion recommend you restart the game for a trouble-free experience. Might be that the same is happening with this patch.
Maybe some of the changes break the old saves, but when you start fresh it works fine.

Of course Steam will regulate mods. All mods will have to be tested, and verified of a certain quality.

They're not going to host all the mods that a site like TESNEXUS does. They'll only host the most popular, the most complete.

Yes, bethesda and Valve certainly have the best quaity control. I suppose community bugfixes will also be tested and verified for quality. Thanks but no thanks, valve.

Is there really not some other company that you can bitch about,

instead of the one that supports its games with a free content, modding tools and a patches on a weekly basis?

Like CryTek... they don't update their games weekly.


And when I say bitch, I mean there's nothing to bitch about even for you.. YET

but sure looks like you prepared yourself.
In case Valve strikes and steals all teh mods rofl

Man you really are hardcore.
you gave your money to Valve when buying the game, but you won't download mods

How about game updates , are they allowed in this hardcore world or
you have to wait for community update?

So?

Valve still got your money.

It's a Steamworks game, they get a percentage.

If bathesda want to give them a percentage that's their business... don't see how that effects me in anyway as I paid what I'd pay for any other game. Just hope valve sticking it's fingers in the pie doesn't destroy the one thing that kept people like me buying their games all these years.

Performance increase patch is coming next week guys.

Also Bethesda have stated that PC patches will roll out a lot faster than console patches as they don't normally take as long to verify.

The steamworks mod inclusion, I think, is a great idea. Obviously mods will be monitored on there as it would be their fault for putting up a broken mod, or a mod still in beta. That just would not make sense. Same as its your own fault if you take that risk and beta test a mod your self.

It also stats that nowhere that you wont still be able to choose your own mods from sites like nexsus or modDB...

source: http://www.vg247.com/2011/12/01/skyr...t-due-january/

quotes:

"For those who prefer existing communities, mods will still be available for sharing on indie sites like ModDB."

"The developer warned that stand-alone PC and Steam patches will arrive faster than consoles, due to faster certification turn around, and acknowledged problems introduced with past patches."

Seems like good news all around if you ask me, the game will be given great support in terms of patches and tool sets for modders. Mods will be easier to download and install from steamworks, and mods from indie sites will still be allowed (at users own discretion).

What more could you ask for really? They had to give this the love they are giving it, seen as it is the most played game currently on steam by a long long way.

Yeah, I don't get why BlackZero hates NVIDIA & Steam, two companies keeping PC gaming alive. Without them, it'd be long gone. Or only MMO's would remain.

I don't hate any company... Just don't go following behind a 'single company' like they are the second coming either.. unlike certain members...

Seems like Mkilbride can't except critism of Valve..
