I am fun, loving and like long walks on the bea...wait wrong website, I am co-founder of Nightman Games, I was born and raised in Scotland, and have a passion for gaming. I have clocked more than 1000 hours on Oblivion (console & windows), maybe around 500 on Fallout 3 and 250 on New vegas. Most of that time is in mods more than the actual games, I play several MMO's including but not limited to Rift, SWG, WoW (Yeah I dont like to admit that one), WAR and soon TOR. I am a one man mod dev team which I guess is why my main mod hasnt been released yet. I and my partner are working on a new 2D Pixel Art game currently called Steam Worlds, even after it is released I will be working hard on refining it then adding more to it. I really dont know what else to put here so bye!

Righty, Nightman Games will be getting it's website very soon, like in a week or so, this will be the best place to get all the info on SteamVerse, any other games and of course mods which are made by us, also be where the screenshots/videos/etc will be hosted and probably the wiki for each one too.
I am incredibly excited about Skyrim (seriously I think I will go kill someone if anything goes wrong). And in this excitement I kinda sorta decided to start working on a Skyrim Mod website, where people can upload their Skyrim mods, much like here at ModDB (TES series hasn't really got a modding scene here compared to other places). I will be opening the site as soon as I can so people can start registering and prepping pages for mods they want to make and show their ideas and things, the following will be rough guidelines of the rules I have planned.
-NO ADVERTISEMENTS! Seriously none what so ever, on the mod site that is.
-Hosting has to be provided by the modder themselves for their own mods, the suggested site to use will be mediafire as it has no advertisements and is my personal favorite but not required, it is also highly recommended that multiple sites be used to host the mod, I will include direct links to several sites which would be acceptable as hosting options and also a list of what is not allowed. ModDB's Skyrim page will be the first link and suggested that it be used alongside my site.
-Adf.ly links are a scourge, plague, virus that should be avoided at all costs, if a modder wishes to use them then they will be limited to using ONE Adf.ly link and only one, if there is more for the same mod (or an addon to that mod for that matter) then it will be removed, if it happens twice from the same modder then they will be permanently banned from the site. Mods are free and should never be for personal profit.
-Mods must be of a certain standard, if a mod is uploaded and includes material not to a certain standard (major glitches, generally horrible) then it will be removed.
-No comments section, there will be reviews, which will let you rate the mod out of 10, and allow you to say what you thought about it and give feedback, but only the modder will be allowed to see these unless they wish to show them.
Thats all I have at the moment, obviously I haven't worked too hard on these so far and they are only rough ideas, I dont exactly have servers of space and bandwidth or I would host files myself etc, this is just my way of trying to get a site based for Skyrim which doesn't have any ad's or paid membership or anything like that, all I ask for modders to do in return is to use external free hosting sites. The image hosting might be through the site, that depends on a few things, could be external but be able to upload through the site(?).
So far the best name I can come up with is The Crossroads, and I'm pretty sure I just heard it somewhere before...So any suggestions in that area (the name of the mod site) would be much appreciated.
In other news, being that of my Oblivion mod, I will continue with it still (slowly dragging my feet) but development on the New Vegas adaption will be stopped entirely, this is because I have lost interest entirely in the game, the latest addon Lonesome Road, almost put me to sleep, literally. I didn't exactly enjoy any of the game and its addons, only reason I stuck with it was because of the mods and that stream has seemed to run totally dry lately. I will however continue the mod in Skyrim when I finish the Oblivion edition (which as of now will no longer have any promise of extra stuff after the stargate part, only a maybe for that now). The new UI for Skyrim has given me many new ideas for certain aspects and I will soon begin some models for that edition, which currently will be loosely based on Stargate Universe's plot line and style since I feel it would best fit in Skyrim.
Anyway, more details on that once the website for NG is done and up. Anyone interested in making models/textures for Skyrim Universe (yeah I just thought of that), is welcome to lend a hand, alongside audio (music and sound effects) and voice acting too (much later when the mod is close to release). Send me a message if you are interested in helping out. Only thing I will not accept help with is the story and editor stuff, I don't want anyone to know anything more than I want them to until it is released, which I will do my very best to make sure is sooner than a few years from now :P More like a few months for the first chapter.
Edit: The NG website is now up, still being worked on but at least it is now up and running, the projects and forums pages will be done soon but for now they are not functional.
