@squattingturtle said:Its just set to "More divine Amulets of the NIne divines" right now. But I've got some other ideas.Sounds good. I hope you will be uploading it for everyone in the community. PS4, Xbox and PC.
Keep up the good work!
thanks! I will when im confident i wont have to do a billion updates when testing
I think I've cracked it! It seems to be a scaling issue. I reduced the scale of 8 waterfalls from 7.000 to 3.000 and the 8 smaller ones are now working fine. I am going to reduce the scale of them all and see what happens, will post results, but this is going to take a while so don't expect a quick reply lol.
I am going to start the very first topic in the GECK's Fallout 3 forum, because I had some problems this weekend, trying to get the GECK to work on my gaming computer, which has Windows 8.1. Apparently if you've got Windows 7, there are no problems with using the GECK, so no worries for you folks. But for newer systems, I think it's important to get this information on this forum, so that solutions can be discussed.
The problems started after I began trying to write my first quest. I could use the GECK for some basic functions just fine. I could make NPCs for instance, and place them into the world no problem. But when I began writing a quest, that's when things got weird. I have written quests for Oblivion before, and I noticed that Oblivion's Construction Set and the Fallout 3 GECK have many similarities, so things started off okay.
What became a problem though specifically was in the Topics window, and also any Conditions windows: all of these were "greyed out" and it seemed like I couldn't interact with them at all. For those of you who have tried making quests with these newer Microsoft interfaces, you know what I am talking about.
This problem is discussed in this video, and is caused apparently by an old Windows 8 update known as kb3000850. The YouTube page I just linked to discusses this, and also a variety of other websites mention this update. It is possible to get rid of this update and the problem will go away. Problem is, if you're like me and you've been updating for years now, there will be a zillion updates on your system! I began getting rid of a bunch of them, but not only is this time-consuming, it is also impossible to get rid of some updates which are newer than kb3000850. Some updates seem as though they are hardcoded, or something. And I'm not sure it's really a good idea to be deleting updates in the first place, unless you don't have anything newer than kb3000850.
I have not found the final solution yet, maybe some of you have. Some people have had luck running the GECK as an Administrator, in Compatibility mode for Windows 7 (right-click on the GECK.exe, go into the Compatibility tab, and follow the prompts until you are running the GECK as Windows 7), but this did not work for me.
Everything in those windows (the Topics and Conditions windows in the GECK) seem like they are missing, but the info is still there. It all gets squished over to the left, though. To "solve" this, I have been following the advice of some other gamers, who have also gotten stuck. Just highlight the upper-left corner of the window with the missing info, until a symbol like this shows up.
Now grab with your left mouse button, and drag the page over to the right. it's a pain in the *** but it works.
This video shows what I am talking about. It is not a true solution, but it is good as it gets, unless someone out there has some other ideas?
