Day three


A fan always expects, and he is right, to test the product, the mod. Even if there will be some delay, he is now able to estimate the release date of IATK. Details below!

11/11/11 : here we go! Skyrim is available, mod ideas are everywhere besides still waiting for the creation kit which was released later, and thanks to them the game still lives 4 years later. Among those mod author there is Arkanikorde who, we know it, has been the origin of "I am the King!", an abstract concept which comes to fame, as a major project one Bethesda’s game.
During four years the project team has created an entire region on paper, with its background, stories, tales, geography, quests and more. But besides the team lacks on the technical points: turn-over from mod specialists, technical or IRL issues coming over and over, it is truly difficult to complete successfully a task where all the protagonists are there during their free time.
But we keep moving, and in order for us to stop being waited, and stop making you wait for us, we have decided to release IATK in its final version for the first and great region: Penthiver. In 0.1 according our notation.
Which will be probably reached by 2016!


What about the content? One big region formed by cities, villages, castles, dungeons and forests. Some side quests and main plots, as the regional civil war (we will talk about it soon). We can say almost out-and-out. What will be missing? Well, first of all the main quest and the royalty simulator, because planed for the end of the development. Those regions will not be there: Lestre, Athel-Loren and Sintavoir, but each one are smaller than Penthiver.


Now you know everything. Everything? Almost… One last word to warm you, we won’t be a part of the MOTY this year, the ModDB contest which rewards the best mods, in order to be fully concentrated on the development, without absent-mindeness.

Now you know the whole story!

I really like how this mod is going! Keep up the good work.
I also think it's awesome how a game like skyrim which is allready quite 'old 'is still being modded, I do expect a part of the modders to stop modding skyrim when fallout 4 is released but there are also the diehards atleast, it's really fascinating how big the community is around skyrim, here and on the nexus and some subforum sites. :)

Oh my god, i've been waiting for this for quite some time, and now you're telling me the wait was not in vain... This is a dream coming true, I wish you all the success possible in the mod and in life for making this possible. Also, a HUGE THANK YOU :D

I can't wait for this, but still I'm a bit afraid it will spoil us...

I mean, without the main quests and with only one zone, how long will it last until we have explored anything this release has to offer ? And if we "finish" this first load of content, and still have to wait a few month for the next release, will it be fun for us to come back to the mod, considering we know the map and we already did all the quests ?

I know some people (including me) can play and re-play Skyrim over and over, even if they know it by heart (some immersion mods help a lot), but that's not the case of many ones, for exemple people that can't take time to look at beautiful landscapes (which is half the pleasure of TES) and only rush the quests using fast-travel....

So I'm a bit worried : how will you balance the content of this alpha so it won't kill the pleasure to discover all the mod for the first time ? Can you ensure there will still be some fun with the final version, or do you recommend not to download this if we don't want to kill the pleasure ?

I don't know if I'm clear, please tell me if you don't understand what I mean... ^^

I'm really sorry for not replying sooner. I understand your point of view, which is totally right, but well, there is just one problem: if we wait to finish the mod, when will it be released?
I'm afraid that it is the only way to share it with you, and it is hard enough with one region actually. :)

Ahah, you're 1 year late mate ! I totally forgot about this comment xD

Yeah, I understand the reasons why modders want to release a demo of their work (I am one myself :p) but on a game like this it can be somewhat bad to the mod... Hope you make the right choice !

Well, we don't really have the choice in fact. But I still understand that it won't be the best thing. It's something or nothing.
You make mods for Skyrim? :)

Not for Skyrim, no... but if I had more time I'd like to...

But I modified a lot Dawn of War and Company of Heroes, which come with a pretty nice toolbox, and are fun to mod ;)

Ah oui c'est vrai qu'on est français... J'ai tendance à l'oublier sur ce genre de site xD

Ceci étant dit, modder Skyrim... pourquoi pas ?
;p

C'est quelque chose à expérimenter. Les tutoriaux vidéos Bethesda sont de plus très bien faits. Le CreationKit peut cependant vite énerver, ce n'est pas l'éditeur de jeu le plus stable. ^^
