My body has been being ready all day. They've done a fantastic job improving over the previous CK's, even if they did forget a "Save As". :P

What exactly are the differences? I've been messing around with the Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas editors (not for too long though) and I haven't noticed too many differences with this one yet.

Does it have to be different? It's a Bethesda game. What do you expect? You'll have to excuse me though. I plan on disappearing to my room for the next year tinkering with the creation kit.

Edit: 2 Seconds of searching later. =P

I'm honestly disappointed. Early on they were touting how they were building a completely new editor from the ground up, bla bla bla. But its the exact same cumbersome editor they've had since Morrowind with a few flashy new features. If the Dragon Age 2 devs are learning from their mistakes and researching Skyrim and other games, Bethesda needs to check out Neverwinter Nights, Starcraft 2, etc to learn how to build their "world editor" portion of the program because lets face it "Pick up and go ease of use has never, EVER" been their specialty.

If with "world editor" you mean the 3D view to create levels then I can only agree with you. Wih Bethesda's editors I focused on creating new scripts and items instead of designing 'levels' because the tools are not very intuitive to use. I would love an updated world editor :(

To be fair, bethesda are still one of the top supporters of the PC community, releasing modding tools for all their games as well as a complete texture pack for the entire game as free DLC when lesser companies would charge for it, they do all this for their PC player and people still treat them like ****, and you wonder why companies don't like supporting the PC.

Anyone else having the problem when youve selected like an item in the preview, and you press D to deselect it, and it shoes that you deselect it, but when you move the mouse around with Shift, the camera is like focused on it still as if it's selected. It makes making mods a whole lot harder...

V-E-R-Y_G-L-I-T-C-H-Y! In the Creation Kit Wiki, under the "New features" there are only so many, the rest is just the same as the previous tools... Wht did they mean by "from the ground up"??? Ah well, still gonna have to use it to mod. Exporting models STILL requires 3rd party software written by modders... was hoping too much.

I wonder if someone will make a mod to actualy add dragons in this game? So far its just packed full of Wyverns, but no dragons.

That would make me buy the game!

The Skyrim Dragons are some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in a game. You're missing out.

I hope we get a Horror MOD xD Be a Vampire Lord, Werewold or just an evil person.

...Ruling your dark castle, commanding your dark forces and spread terror across the land! But beware... the humans will strike back... so defend your home, build traps and letyour monster swarm out.

just an idea xD
