Idiocy

Mine.

I've mentioned in the past running Colourwheel's excellent "Sexy Oblivion Overhaul". I like it, with the minor caveat that it isn't set up to work with Nequam's eye meshes.

Previously I had been fixing this myself, by editing the new esps as they were released; resetting the CW races to use the other eye meshes.

I had been holding off upgrading to 5.1, because while the "fixing" part isn't hard, it is tedious.

As I was sitting tonight, letting the esp load into the construction set; a thought occurred. I don't use a replacer for the normal human eyes. So... instead of editing a dozen races for every new version, why not simply copy and rename a set of Nequam's eye meshes and drop into the Imperial directory to function as a full replacer.

Since I use Elaborate Eyes/Ren's Hair beauty pack anyway, it's not like there'll be NPCs that have a conflict.

So... that's a few wasted hours, and I feel like an idiot for not thinking of it sooner.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still totally going to edit the 5.1 esp. It's just this time I'm going to edit CW's sexified city and legion guards to use armors from Apachii's Goddess Store.

I think Vampirella in black for the Imperial City guard. Haven't decided on the others yet. Not as though there's any shortage of choices. Simple matter of pointing the female meshes on the armors to the new armors. One edit will handle all the pieces for every NPC in the game that uses them. Much faster than editing NPC inventories directly.

  2. Uh, thanks? Not really positive how that applies to a post about my being an sieve-headed and missing an obvious detail... but I appreciate the support.

  3. Since you removed the comment, I'm guessing you posted it to the wrong 'Idiocy'.

    Sorry - I need to come up with more unique names for my posts.
