1.4 Spoiler shots: Part 1 (Mirror)

Li' Jarr is the name of this Khajiit. You might remember him as the cat man always hanging around Quillinda. Li' Jarr is just one of the many characters that I have written dialogue for who are fully voiced now.

In my progress report I have mentioned, "Map #2 full revamp of clutter/locations/land decor" This is just a taste to show you that yes, Full revamp. This area of the map was barren, now it is not, the entirety of map 2 was rebuilt to be fully decorated with houses, dungeons people and quests. Just redeveloping the land took me around 6 months. The following images are a fraction of what has been added to Map #2.












1.4 Spoiler shot: Part 2 will be out soon. To those who care, yes I am still at risk of loosing my internet.  It takes a humble person to ask strangers for help. It takes a person of little pride to divulge personal and desperate details of their life with the same strangers.

Since sharing my situation with the world, I have accepted the pledge of two people on Patreon, who with good heart, earnestly wish to help me. I have received one donation of $5 from a person that has never played my mod. It has been 10 days. This kind soul has suggested that maybe the others who enjoy my mod might be in desperate times as well. I told them that I do not believe that mods should ever be behind a pay wall, nor should they ever be charged. I told him it is against my core ideals to ask strangers for money, but it honours me that he would help. I know that there are some authors and even reviewers that get hundreds of dollars a month in assistance. I'm not sure that everyone is in an equal place. The post I made asking for help has been seen by 10,000 English speaking people. It saddens me to think that 10,000 people who seem interested in my work can't reach out to help with even 50 cents. of 10,000 people, 3 people found it in their hearts to help support me.
I'm sharing these pictures while I can and posting these updates to show they are not lies. The work I have done polishes Summerset Isle, quadruples the content of the mod.
If you like what I do, if you are excited for the update. Please, help me. Anything you can do to relieve some of my financial burdens will help me more than words can say.

Oblivion Realm Progress


Progress on the new world-space is coming along nicely. I've gotten my custom sky to work and having a blast from the past play testing it. I posted this update first on my other blog here. The world-space of the deadlands will of course be included with Summerset Isle version 1.4, as well as the tens of thousands of other goodies. Remember that if you like what I do and wish to support me, I would greatly appreciate any sort of donation. be it $0.50 or more. It is a nice way to say thank you to me, and it would help relieve many of the burdens in my life. You would also have my warmest gratitude.

Improvements

I posted this picture in 2015 a few months before release of Summerset Isle.
I just finished updating the textures for the daedric ground cover and this is a teaser to what it looks like.

Progress Report

Currently I am working on importing some of the finished lines for the new characters I've written up.
I've decided to hold of on implementing any quests until all the new dialogue is added. I had problems with adding more quests in 2015, just before release. It was really frustrating and I'd rather save that for the end.

For those interested in numbers.

Original Summerset Isle available on Nexus has approximately 70 characters with unique dialogue. Of the 600 plus NPCs that can make the world seem like there isn't much communication. I aim to fix that. Of the 70 voiced characters, they had a total of about 1600 lines. When you compare that to mods like Inigo, Vilja, and 3DNPCs it isn't very much.

You have to consider that those mods are specific in their purpose, allowing the mod author to focus primarily on dialogue. As Summerset Isle has multiple Islands, and all the content you would expect from a DLC sized mod, plus only one person working on it. Putting all my time and effort into voice work would have detracted in different areas.

Currently I have added an additional 17 unique dialogue characters with an additional 795 lines of dialogue. bringing the totals to:
87 unique dialogue characters and 2395 lines of dialogue. Ideally I would like for there to be 140+ unique dialogue characters and 5000+ lines of dialogue.

I'm still waiting on a few voice actors to get some of their roles finished, that and I have more lines finished awaiting proofreading to be sent off. I also have a number of characters that don't have voice actors yet, so I will be setting up another casting call soon.
