Right, well first off I must apologize for the delay of the beta for the next version of SkyFi, I wanted it out before I moved house but that just didn't happen. For anyone wanting to know the reason it was mainly just that there were too many bugs in the way and several things causing crashes. I have gotten all those problems sorted out now though, I have only just got the internet in my new place up and running but it took so long that I have now moved to the next minor version of the mod.

In short this means another week or so till I release the beta, probably through Desura. As a silver lining of sorts there will be more in the mod that was previously intended when I originally planned the beta release. While I was stuck without a computer for about half the time I have not had full internet access I was using my laptop, which is not capable of running Skyrim very well but enough that I could work on a micro-mod to keep me on my toes with the CK and Papyrus. This micro-mod will be included as an optional addon to the main mod and will also be released separately on Steam Workshop. My intention is to have several of these micro-mods as addon's to the core mod, mainly to avoid conflicts with other mods but also for people who do not wish to download the core mod as it will eventually get pretty large in file size (already is 100mb last I checked). So far the only MM (Micro-Mod) is an SGU styled gate network in each major city with a tel'tak to travel to most of the major villages. 

I am sure most of you noticed that there have been some WIP model images uploaded by the teams modeler, if not then you can see them below, I myself also am working on some experimental model concepts which will be posted soon. I recently seen some footage from the old cancelled SG-1 game 'The Alliance', this pretty much sparked some ideas so don't be surprised if you see anything similar from that.

Some New things, read description :)

I am open for ideas for micro-mods, which need to be things which edit the vanilla worldspaces, such as the gate network I have been implementing. For instace if you would prefer to see a Puddle Jumper for travel between the all the dwemer ruins, or maybe an alien ship above some major cities (already some plans in motion for that with invading enemy forces patroling the areas). So yet again I am asking for feedback and suggestions, I ask every time and get one or two but maybe if I keep asking you lot might take the hint and tell me things you want haha.

Oh on a slightly related note, from now on when I release a full version or patch (non-beta) then it will be available through ModDB, Skyrim Nexus, Steam Workshop, Mediafire, Rapidshare and as many other file hosting sites as I am comfortable with. This simply means if you have membership to a site and want a superfast download then you can without being forced to download it through a slower service.

I will post another update in about a week about the Beta, mainly including info when it will be released, where and how to sign up to play it. I may simply be posting it on here so don't bother asking to be in the beta as there is a pretty high chance you won't even need do anything but download.

Won't need to, no Tau'ri no pistols, one of the less decisive reasons for not having Earth involved.

If you want a short explanation of it then it is basically because certain events leading to the demise of the Ancients did not happen and this will be one of the alternate universes where the Alterans were successful defeating the Ori plague that forced them to ascend or die.

A more lengthy explanation will be posted on the wiki I am working on for the mod and it will make more sense once you read that but that is pretty much the summary for the main reason.

If there is no earth, no Tau'ri, then there is no BC-304, no X-303, no P90, nothing us earthlings made. There will still be all the system lords, replicators, and so on that the tauri originally defeated because they never existed in this universe to defeat them.

I made this choice for many reasons and will explain them in future. I am not 100% ruling out the chance of seeing something Tau'ri as I may incorporate some random multi-verse quest but there is no Earth, no Tau'ri and none of their consequences in the universe as it is planned.

Well, we can always think that Skyrim is kinda like Earth (due humans live there mostly), and the other is kinda like different evolution (elves etc.). Since this is kinda parallel universe anything is possible, in this universe the humans are not advanced enaugh for space travel or having modern tech.

If you like you can think of it that way sure, doesn't make it true but you can think of it that way. Love how someone thinks voting my comments down will make a difference.

@maxbun I have re-read your comment several times and still I am not quite sure what you mean. If I am right though, I know there is no Earth because in the universe in this mod, I made it that way, I decided long before starting development not to include earth or the tau'ri.

I say no earth in the way that we know earth, I have many reasons for this, for all you know I could add earth with a different name.

What about the Goa'uld and the Jaffa? Even if there is no earth does that mean the Goa'uld stole people from TES then? (And i was saying that what if Tamriel is a world that is lost in space that no one even knows about?)

They stole humans from another world, as I said, makes a lot more sense in with all the info I have to put into the wiki.

well, i can reply to that as well. The earth may be thinked as lost planet (the first world as Teal'C said in the second episode) that has not been found yet, the gate is still buried and not found so the Earth cannot be involved in the mod nor it can be reached since goa'uld dont know its location

Skyfi.wikia.com

It is not done being typed up but I skipped ahead in the list and did the Tau'ri section of the Wiki to end this 'discussion'. I do not want to hear anything else about Tau'ri, or why they are not in, I am sick of the damn e-mails about it.

Although if anyone finds plot holes because of them being removed then tell me so I can fill them in.
