Vampiric computer wants my blood!

So I better explain the title of this post. My computer's power supply fried Sunday night just after I posted at ORE Forums. It shut down as though we had a power outage, but sadly it was just the computer. I bought a new power supply and installed it last night. Darn computer bites me everytime I open the case, serious! Well, the computer works fine once again and no data was lost.

Progress on Guild Benefits continues. I have the doors to the room at Bruma Mages' Guild working properly. Set up a quest and a script to switch out the doors between the pre-destruction guild and the destroyed guild. Thanks go to Darkrider for the script, which I slightly modified. It now triggers upon completion of the quest to check the guild and also if you have already completed the quest before loading Guild Benefits. A similar quest/script combo will be done to provide compatibility for users of Bruma Mages Guild Rebuilt by SSJHero.

The Mages' Guild rooms are mostly complete. Need to do Archmage's Quarters and put the finishing touches on Bruma. Next will implement room upgrade purchases for those who don't like freebees.

Funny thing, my fiance who doesn't play Oblivion has been helping me mod. And even suggested he should get a copy of the game just for modding purposes. How awesome is that? So far he has been helping with lighting and decorating advice.

[WIPz] Guild Benefits is progressing nicely.

Mages' Guild rooms are nearing completion. Done so far are Anvil, Bravil, Cheydinhal, Chorrol, Leyawiin, Skingrad, and the IC: Arcane University: Mages' Quarters. Still to do are Bruma and the Archmage's Quarters. Bruma will function before and after destruction, a compatibility esp will be provided for Bruma Mages' Guild Restored. The Archmage's Quarters will be a separate esp file incase people want to use one of the many revamp mods instead.

Here is a picture of your room in Leyawiin.

Website Migration Complete!

Finally, the website is running and fully updated. Everything looks great.

I currently working on Flowers Resource Pack 2. Got lots of beautiful pictures from free websites. The flower side projects came about because while I was decorating in Guild Benefits, I got real tired of the same clutter over and over. What better way to decorate than with pretty flowers? But with one boquet and only 3 middle class planters, a new resource needed to be made. That's where I'm at now. Flower Power!

Flowers, a patch and a resource

Double release for Oblivion tonight. The first is a simple fix removing the green stuff from the flower petals (soon to be included in UOP Hotfix by Arthmoor.) The second is a modder's resource containing 58 new flower boquets and planters.

See the release thread here for screenshots and download links.
