The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Dragonborn - Official Trailer

Dragonborn will be available for download for 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE® on December 4.

ESRB RATING: MATURE with Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, and Use of Alcohol.


Bethblog is reporting that a trailer for the next Skyrim DLC installment will be released today. No details are available yet, except for this image:

However there are rumors and more rumors on the Bethforums that it will be called Dragonborn based on code from the latest update.

The next DLC will be called Dragonborn and it will be set on the island of Solstheim.
The main locations you will be able to visit are Raven Rock, Miraak Temple, Castle Karstaag and a Telvanni tower (N.B.: Not the Telvanni Tower seen in Morrowind in Vivec, but one like this).
There will be some new armor types, Bonemold, Chitin, Nordic and Stalhrim each having heavy and light classifications.
Out of these new materials, you will be able to craft new types items out of two of them, namely Stalhrim and Nordic.
Spears will be added along with an array of new creatures/automotons, Riekling, Scrib, Netch, Boar, Benthic Lurker, Ballista Centurion, and something with an internal name ofHMDaedra, quite possibly referring to Hermaeus Mora since it lists his plane of oblivion, Apocrypha. You will also be able to ride dragons and be in combat while mounted on one.

This is what the quest header for Dragonborn Quests will look like, and this is what the compass markers look like for the new locations.
From the top, clockwise: Telvanni Tower, To Solstheim, Raven Rock, Castle Karstaag, Standing Stones, To Skyrim, Miraak Temple.

There will be at least two new tracked stats: Dragonborn Quests Completed, and Stalhrim Items Crafted

You will travel to Solstheim via a boat, much like you did in Bloodmoon, although this time, it looks like you may at least get a partial visual boat ride.
The Telvanni tower has float up and down animations, so no levitation it seems.
Dragon riding will take place in its own world space

Mounted combat looks like it's getting an improvement with the ability to cast spells while mounted, tihs isn't necessarily a Dragonborn only thing though!

It appears that Update 1.8 readies Skyrim for PS3 DLC.

I will update when the trailer is released.

Skyrim Monster Mod is being updated to version 10 right now. The file is currently being uploaded to the Nexus and should be available soon. This mod adds lots and lots of additional enemies to Skyrim's various landscapes and increases the number of enemies in some areas. Think of Marts Mutant Mod for Fallout.

Download the new version here when it becomes available - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/9694/

That's my first ever try to make a tut (I'm no good with explaining things)
all the files that I've used are here: http://www.mediafire.com/?j1z5eu0046yd8  + little extras

I'm using Milkshape 3d and attaching "scope.ms3d".
The materials.7z file contains all the textures that I've been using

Scroll down for Troubleshooting

normal view


You can add VMDOF (viewmodel deph of field) in ironsight, and make it end just before scope, this will make it blur for a (less than)second when shooting(scope comes closer)

Most Common Problems:
1. If your scope looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/kbljP.jpg
       You need to Properly (re)coordinate textures, and you need to do that every time you decompile the model

2. My scope has missing textures
       a. Pathfiles in your .qc file are not showing proper directories for textures

       b. Pathfiles in .VMT files are not showing proper directories for textures

3. My Scope is not showing anything, just lense material like normal
Code: [Select]
r_subviewcam 1 in console and restart smod, type in console
Code: [Select]
restart3.b SMOD crashes when I'm trying to use weapon with Rt scope on it
        Put your weapon to precache in mapadd to prevent game crashes Thanks to  gpgpgpgp

4. My Scope constantly stays on, no mater if I'm using it or not
        You need to add overlay texture for rt_scope material
Code: [Select]
"OverlayTexture" "models\weapons\v_models\Addons\Scope\glare"  <--glare.vtf is an overlay in this caseand full
Code: [Select]
"$basetexture" "models\weapons\v_models\Addons\Scope\scope_rt"
"$model" "1"
"Proxies" {
"SubViewCam" {
"ReplaceTexture" "$basetexture"
                        "OverlayTexture" "models\weapons\v_models\Addons\Scope\glare"
"DefaultAlpha" "1"
"SightedAlpha" ".1"
"BufferID"         "0"
"Size" "512"
"FOV" ".06"

5. My Scope is mirrored
    You need to mirror the polygons/vertexes in milkshape:
     Select scope_rt vertexes and:

        a. If it's mirroring horizontally:
        go to "vertex" menu and select "mirror left - right"
        re-position the lense, re-coordinate textures, and compile

        b. If it's mirroring Vertically:
        go to "vertex" menu and select "mirror top - bottom" (I've never seen a scope mirroring vertically,  0.01% chance to happen, or less)
         re-position the lense, re-coordinate textures, and compile

6. I'm still getting the old (2d) scope not 3d one
         Delete/comment out Scope section in your weapon_custom## file

7. My scope is not moving along with weapon/moving along with wrong part of it
         You have not assigned your scope model to any bone/ You have not assigned your scope model to wrong bone (that's model hacking issue you noob)

In most cases Re-doing the scope fixes the problem,
so use your creativity to fix problems, also don't forget to make a backup before any modification, Have Fun!

If you have troubles with understanding me or anything else,
just say that, that'll help me to improve the quality of those tutorials

  • Chyvachok: If you use Milkshape, at side bar in Groups tab you will see "Auto Smooth" enable it, after that when you will try move model it will be white, but look messy, when you will need assign faces into different smoothing groups to fix that, for example for cylinder like barrel or silencer you must select it end caps and assign them to smoothing group 2 or something, for other parts of model like weapon body I usually assign sides of model (if you look at it from right or left view) to smoothing group 2, and top parts of model to smoothing group 3.

  • minmi96: ok then. how do I fix it?
    September 06, 2017, 02:55:13 AM
  • Chyvachok: Well, I downloaded Crowbar tool to decompile your MP7 model, it seems like MP7 world model have somewhat broken smoothing, its dark. look at screenshots of view model and world and see difference: [link]

  • minmi96: Dude the link for it is in the Thread.
    September 05, 2017, 05:23:46 PM
  • Chyvachok: Also I can't decompile .mdl or check model in model viewer because I have broken videocard, and one of hard drives in my PC seems almost broken too, so I disabled it, which exactly contained "Crowbar" decompiler and most of the games. Only model tool what it is working on my PC right now is Milkshape 3d, and it also lag when you move model in it, because integrated videocard is too weak and have 64mb of video memory.

  • Chyvachok: I did not got any messages from you with link for model, or you mean I check that skin what you uploaded on Gamebanana?
    September 04, 2017, 06:41:18 PM
  • minmi96: @Chyvachok Have you looked at it yet? If the Problem is coming from the Model then I'll send the .smd of it.

  • Chyvachok: About broken lightning on model, it might be broken smoothing in model, if you PM me and give smd of that model I might try explain how to fix that, but I know how to fix only in Milkshape.
