Couple somewhat silly things to share that didn't really fit into the other posts so here we go.
Firstly, readers probably won't know this, but Mystery-chan is really very whimsical and downright silly when she's not being... y'know... bloodthirsty and violent.
She wrote one of her own companion join dialogues some time back, and when I was starting out a new game last night I finally managed to capture it:
...I swear that woman would make for a great thesis on manic behavior or maybe schizophrenia...
I mentioned in the last post that I had noticed the records count when I was monkeying with some code; well, that code was for the dogs. Originally, only Princess was supposed to be a follower; with Fenrir and Steve just sort of hanging around the Estate.
Well, this game, they wanted to bring all three dogs with us on the road for reasons I sort of spaced out during the recitation of. But hey; why the fuck not? It's not like I've never scripted a new companion before.
Since I'm apparently patently incapable of leaving well enough alone, while under the hood anyway I decided Fenrir needed some... work. He just wasn't suitable to be a demon's beloved pet.
Which leads me to a little riddle for you all:
Where does a hundred and fifty pound warhound sleep?
Answer? Wherever the hell it wants.
Also: Fenrir loves coyotes. Apparently they taste great. Poor, poor little 'yotes.
While it violates the 'rescued stray' backstory I yanked out of my ass during his creation, I am sorely tempted to go full-demon with Fenrir. I couldn't find a ported copy of Slof's Hellhound mesh that I used for Ysgithr in Oblivion; but some Google-fu told me that apparently the Monster Mod for FNV has a warhound with some horns 'n crap from a deathclaw grafted on. I've been thinking that one of those with a little texture work and the eyes reworked to glow a bit would be pretty cool. Probably make going out for supplies a bitch though; what with all the people running in abject terror.
...I was supposed to be working on normalmaps, wasn't I? Shit; I knew I forgot to do something today...
