Y'may remember how I was bitching enthusiastically the other day about my FO3 companions plugin not behaving. Specifically, the updates I had made to try to fix some issues worked about as well as Wolfcastle's Goggles (zeh goggles! zey do nosink!).
I was working on the estate this morning, converting my edited plugin back to a master to pop into game and test the new pretties; when I noticed TESSnip was trying to save the new master into my Skyrim directory.
...Apparently, I had used TESSnip to copy the armor records for Maeva's horns into the Skyrim companions plugin; and TESSnip was still convinced that was the directory I wanted to work in. So the updated FO3 plugin was in the Skyrim directory (which did not amuse Wrye at all) and the one in my FO3 directory I had actually been playing on was left over from June.
I have got to stop modding and play-testing at six AM when I haven't been to bed yet...
