EMB series must be installed properly. the sunglare / flarelens will be solved if you put this in your SkyrimPrefs: bFloatPointRenderTarget = 1


If you do not, the sun will shine through the wall and mountains etc.

as shown in this film.


Your SkyrimPrefs is C: \ Users \ Documents \ My Games \ Skyrim if you can not open ini file just right clikk and open with Notepad. When you have opened SkyrimPrefs you can Ctrl + F (to find text) and paste bFloatPointRenderTarget.

not seem to find bFloatPointRenderTarget. then you can simply paste it into SkyrimPrefs. You must remember that you must have "= 1" right behind bFloatPointRenderTarget it should look like this bFloatPointRenderTarget = 1


Good luck and no lollygagging :)

I love how the skyrim loading screen had a blazing chicken on it!  The exploding chicken might as well be the mascot for this show.

The belt fasten quivers is more for when you have a backback mod, and you also want to have a quiver, without it clipping right thru the backback.

An ode to mod 4:

On the Ning Nang Nong 
Where the Cows go Bong! 
and the monkeys all say BOO! 
There's a Nong Nang Ning 
Where the trees go Ping! 
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo. 
On the Nong Ning Nang 
All the mice go Clang 
And you just can't catch 'em when they do! 
So its Ning Nang Nong 
Cows go Bong! 
Nong Nang Ning 
Trees go ping 
Nong Ning Nang 
The mice go Clang 
What a noisy place to belong 
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

I do love the skyrim mod section, way too much negativity in the game world atm, and it is a nice refreshing change.

Just one thing


why are these videos credited to a Sarah Lynch? She isn't on these videos, what on earth does she do?

Best backpack ever! If I got one of those with the CE even I would have preordered. Inigo Montoya must be the king of the *looks at video again* ..Ningheimers.

I also thank the norse lords that I wasn't drinking any beverages when you made Inigo. My monitor would have been hard to clean.

@starduke 

personally I prefer it because of its lore value.  Over-the-back quivers were never used in medieval Europe, but rather were usually fastened on the belt at the hip or the small of the back - like this mod.  And it also looks neat there.

Hey there! I work behind the scenes on site production, which is why you'll see my name popping up on feature pages like this sometimes when I put them together. If you've got any questions for me feel free to leave a comment on my blog.

@Barrakas21 Go away, If your not interested in Skyrim mods, then don't watch the video....pretty simple solution to your problem.

@Ish_basic You do realize that Skyrim is set on Nirn, in the continent of Tamreil, in the country of Skyrim, and not Medieval Europe, right? Which means it fits in with lore to have over-the-back quivers. However, it does look neat there, plus the no clipping thru backpacks thing.
