Decided to hop back into the Oblivion Construction Set this evening, to see if I couldn't help Miss Herculine out with a CM issue.
...Well, I couldn't. As is my usual lot in life, I couldn't get the problem to manifest.
Damn you, reliable game installs!
Anyway, to do this, instead of using one of my known-good companions, I opted to create a new one from scratch.
I (very briefly) considered attempting to recreate the Little Fairy herself... but I'm trying hard to not be That Creepy Guy, so instead I brought Aribeth (of NWN fame) across into Cyrodiil.
Total work time: about forty-five minutes, including one CS crash and the resulting re-do of the work; refinements to the face (why, oh why, does Oblivion try to give elf women chins like that kid from Mask?!), and screenshot taking.
Also played a bit with pose mods. Also got a chuckle from the screenshots themselves. Numbers started at Screenshot10. In FO3 I'm well over eight hundred. You can tell which game I've been more active in sharing stuff about.
Probably won't upload the companion. Not happy with the hair or eyes - used game defaults instead of something from Ren's beauty pack - and of course I'm not sure on the face, totally. Character detail in NWN is spotty at the best of times, so I had to go by artwork, and of course every artist envisions her differently...
Still, nice to see I've still got the Oblivion touch, as well.
Now if I can just resist the urge to rip the sound files and complete the companion...
