If I had 3dsMax, loading it up would be much easier, eh? :D Funny, I have the exact same problem with starting up my Ferrari. What are the odds of that? ;)

I really like that red, personally. It's your mod, of course, so do it the way you like it, eh? ;)

I think the only thing wrong with the brown is the lack of anything brighter to contrast it with. Maybe something reflective... The best brown I've ever seen was a paint job on my chopper. It was black lacquer coated with a thick layer of transparent (candy apple) red, then 10 coats of clear coat over the top. People would inevitably spend time looking at it with a WTF?!? look on their face, and if there were 3 people looking, they'd each have a different notion of what color they thought it was depending on the light where they were standing.

EDIT:
It took all day, but it finally occured to me that what I see on my monitor may not be what you see at all. First therte is the differences in vid cards, etc., and then there is my low vision which makes brighter things appear dark. For instance, I can't detect any difference between dark blue and black materials anymore when they are in my hand...

I was just trying to explain how easy it was.

Anyhow have been trying something else and it seems to be cool so far.

Wow! That's a big one... I think if I find a bunch of them on my kitchen counter, they can have whatever they want! :biggrin:

Oh yes, "An ant without mandibles is like a day without sunshine!", that's what me old gaffer used to say... Or maybe not, he drinks, you see, and mumbles a lot... :biggrin:

Honestly though, the ant is good with or without them.

Just realised something, havent noticed it before.
The left eye on the head meshes i gave you, is floating.
I checked MJY's original meshes and they are the same,
so it looks like its always been that way. :meshoot:

Anyhow have fixed it now and i can give you the new meshes,
or you can do it yourself with Nifskope.
The left eye needs moved back a little, into the eyehole.

Not going to use the ant with the daedric daggers,
just going to keep them as normal.

I'll have a look at the eye. You suppose someone told him to keep an eye out for adventurers?

(sorry, I have no self-control left, apparently)I think you're probably right to omit the deadrics, while cool, they don't really fit, do they?

No, it doesnt look right.
I was going to put more daggers on the thorax and maybe try to make some kind of helm,
but i have decided against it now.

Been thinking of how i could put the ants in Bloodmoon.
They might look ok in the forests but not elsewhere i think.
So have been trying something out.
A Snow Ant, hehe :meshoot:

Light on in the CS;

Going to take me a while to do these ants, as i have just recieved word back,
from PseronWyrd and i am going to be making a Squirrel mod and an Elk mod. :meshoot:
So looks like i have my hands full at the moment ffs. :biggrin:

Ok, i have recieved some bad news, which is going to severely affect me over the coming weeks.
I am not going to be able, to have access to my machine most of the time.
Dont know as yet, when this situation will resolve,
so have to put a stop on all projects that i am doing.

Therefore this Ant mod, i dont know what to do,
so what i am thinking of doing, is releasing what i have done so far,
as a resource of sorts.
Have to do this otherwise just stick the stuff away and forget it. :chinscratch:

Now as i said before, i intended to make a mod with Caits Squirrels and her Moose,
as i wasnt given them by Cait, when she made them.
She gave them to someone else, who then did mods with them.
Not going to be able to do that now, as it takes a long time,
to hand place every creature into the game, just right.
So what i may do, is fix them up,do sounds for them and give them working stats,
which they dont have at the moment and release them as a resource too.

The reason i wanted to make a Squirrel mod,
is because the one that is in existence already,
is not correct and unfortunately doesnt work.
This is due to no squirrels were ever put in the game lol. :shrug:
They are entered in the CS but thats it.
No actual placements were done.
The total for the squirrels are 0.
I fail to understand how all the people,
who downloaded that mod over the years since it was done,
failed to see that there were no Squirrels appearing ingame. :shrug:
I just dont understand it lol.

Now apart from that, the Moose mod that is in existence and was made at roughly the same time,
as the Squirrel mod, also has problems.
The sounds dont work as they were never set up in the CS.
So i will be fixing that also .
Once again to do a mod with the Moose will involve a lot of work and time,
which i dont have at present.
So once i get the sounds done and the Moose working right,
i may just release them as a resource also.

This could be considered as part of my exercise,
to release as much of Caits animals/creatures as i can, as resources,
so that they can be uploaded someplace safe and be readily available to folks.

I am just considering these ideas at present,
havent decided for definite yet.
We shall see what happens. :chinscratch:

We'll all enjoy whatever you do decide to release. Sorry to hear you're getting bad news, I hope it works out well for you in the end.

I'm not certain what "Cait's Squirrels" you're using, but I have a version installed that shows 56 of squirrel 1, and 149 of squirrel 2 placed in-game. Hmmm... This is the header in the readme of the one I have:
Cait's Squirrels on Vvardenfel 1.0

by Pseron Wyrd"


I'm looking forward to your version of the moose, though. I used to have one I got from Lady E's, but the animation was terrible, and I've misplaced it somewhere.
