So before my big server crash, I used to basically appear out of thin air once or twice a year to make releases, and then vanish again into the abyss. In an effort to reassure everyone that I’m actually still working on my updates, I’m gonna make an update post here and there to let you know, if nothing else, that I’m still alive, and still modding.
So today’s topics are me finally doing things I’ve been meaning to do for years.
Back when I originally introduced the “sports hall” to the school module, it was completely unfinished, but I actually pretty much forgot it existed, let alone that it wasn’t complete. It’s been a poorly lit empty room for something like 6 years now, but not any more!
As you can see, it finally looks like an actual gym, after all these years, with a little help from my penchant for floor lighting to help make it easier to screenshoot.
That’s not all though. I also finally got around to completely replacing my Ayleid textures.
Some of you may or may not be aware that I originally used textures from Qarl’s Texture Pack 3, since Qarl had passed away a few years previous, and I’d been wanting to carry a little bit of his work into more recent games, but I later found out that those textures weren’t actually legal, because they had been using upscaled Oblivion textures as a base. While Bethesda never gave me any trouble over this (as you can guess from the fact I didn’t do it sooner) it did lead me to place “make original Ayleid textures” to my ASToDo.txt, and they’ve been sitting there for years.
Whenever this final update will be, and I’m done giving predictions because life never works out that way, the last piece of questionable legality will be gone. I’m sad to see it go though.
As a matter of fact, I’m not usually one to release pieces of the AS ahead of updates, so consider this unofficial, but if anyone has a pressing need for the new textures, or just wants to check out the newer (not as good, in my opinion) textures, consider this an unofficial patch: https://charlotte.dysintropi.me/files/ayleid.7z
Place the contents of that file in /textures/0fadril/ayleid/. If you don’t know how to manually install things don’t try to install them.
Okay, that’s me signing off. Until next time.
Edit: Textures. It goes in textures. Please forgive me. I wrote that post when I got up.
