Only possible through the power of VR!

Know that game thats been ported everywhere? It only stands to reason there would be a VR port as well. But this isn't release Skyrim VR, which I hear wasn't that good. I dunno, VR was a gimmick back then and I had no interest in it but now its legit. And now its got a lot of mods for it, along with whatever was made for skyrim special edition.

I only just got into this "video game" stuff and never heard of skyrim despite it being a 10 year old game!

You are the chosen one and this involves killing dragons. In theory. Usually you just browse around for a bunch of mods, install them, run a dungeon, realize something wasn't installed right, go back and rework your mod list, then you uninstall.

How is ths LP gonna be done?

I'll be going through the main story, dawnguard, dragonborne and the main guilds. I wont be touching the civil war story cause *blows fart noises from mouth*

Spoilers?

If I'm not currently in its story line, lets not talk about it. For side stuff go for it, I'm not really gonna be showing those off.

Hey you're the one with the video of modded skyrim and the tits right? Can't wait to see that in the LP ahahahaha

ahahahaha no I uninstalled that. But don't you worry, I got something that should satisfy that checklist of what people bring up the most in regards to skyrim mods.

Why Linkle?

Linkle owns and Nintendo sure as gently caress isn't gonna do anything with her

When will the updates be coming?

lol

Whats with the camera?

The way VR works is that there are 2 cameras, one to the left and another to the right for each eye. Combined this makes everything look centralized. In recording though its only through one eye, in this case its the right eye. I'll try to work with this as best as I can by closing my left eye to make sure I'm keeping the camera in mind. Another issue is that VR resolution is extremely high, not only that but if I were to try and fit the entire screen onto the canvas it'll have this octagonal black border around the entire screen.

I'll try to make sure anything of interest is on the bottom left of my right eye, its the best that I can do.

Just wait until I reach Windhelm, you'll feel like you're actually there hearing a guard tell you about their retirement from being an adventurer!

Sadly no. Also I may or may not ever remember that horses exist in this game.

If my patreon hits 1k I will punch a hole in one of the eyes in my headset.

And I guess I can show an edited version of my mod list

Don't tease the Octopus, kids!

It's lovely.

It sounds like you were talking about getting stuck with quest items in your inventory with weight, but presumably you know that quest items don't actually weigh anything? (Unless you have a mod that changes that, which would be a bad idea I'd think).

Looks like I was wrong, the dragonstone shows weight when its in your inventory but it doesn't actually increase your encumbrance. Until it no longer becomes a quest item, then it starts to effect weight.

I'm coming to realize LPing a game where I need to stand and swing around with a job that has me lifting heavy boxes and leaving me exhausted at home is not a good combination and leads to weeks of delay. Wait its already been a month? God dammit

Today we join the Companions, we kill an animal then trawl a dungeon. I also nerd out a bit on the concept of half swording

Something interesting I discovered in heading back in and looting the place: Farkas actually drops his greatsword when he transforms into a werewolf, so you get a free skysteel greatsword out of it.


Yet he has another one when he turns back

Also I found this in a corner of the dungeon



I plan on doing a highlight at the end, in fact the drinking a bottle of booze was gonna have an overlay of any loot highlights but the video was already running 40 minutes. To cut down on time, would it be too obnoxious if I were to start speeding up the running between fights?

E: Though ideally as we go on there will be less dialogue leading up to the various dungeon bits
