Skyrim mod accidentally turns it into a game where no one has eyes anymore

By Cian Maher, Sunday, 30 August 2020 21:57 GMT Apparently loading your Skyrim mods incorrectly can potentially change the Dovahkiin simulator into a game where there is no such thing as eyeballs anymore. Loading mods wrong can have a range of effects on how Skyrim actually plays out. Whether said mods conflict with a necessary narrative aspect of the game or simply render certain errors that lead to absolutely ridiculous bugs, modding your game invokes an inherent risk of absolutely breaking it.That’s pretty much exactly what happened to a user called Camjdent on Reddit. Check out the post below. HELP…

Someone modded Skyrim’s Alduin into Digital Combat Simulator

If you’ve ever taken on Alduin in Skyrim, you’ll know that it’s important to go in equipped with a variety of Shouts, spells, and powerful weapons – but what if, somehow, you had a fighter jet instead? While Alduin ends up being no match for the Dragonborn during their iconic clash in the fields of Sovngarde, the fight likely would have gone a lot smoother for the latter if they had access to a special Dovahkiin warplane. So, as a means of testing this hypothesis, some mad lad went and modded Skyrim’s Alduin into Digital Combat Simulator.Check out the Reddit…

A person submitted all of their college essays in Skyrim Dovah

If you have a lecturer that really, really annoys you, you could probably get back at them by writing all of your assignments in Skyrim Dovah, aka Dragon language. A Reddit user named NicolasYang248 recently did exactly that. I’m not sure whether or not Nicolas did this out of spite or curiosity, but who cares. What matters is that there is a professor somewhere in the world sat looking at a Dragon to English translator right now, trying to decipher organic chemistry diagrams or close readings of Romantic poetry written entirely in Dovah.The best part about this is the delivery,…
