I'm.. a cheater!?
Is there anyone out there that's like me and uses only ONE cheat (carryweight command) in Skyrim and still finds it acceptable?

There's a voice in my head chanting, "Cheater! Cheater!" everytime I play Skyrim and by knowing that there are others like me would relieve some of this guilt.

Be brutally honest, please.

Nope, because I like to take all of the things!

After about my 10 character (which I'm currently playing. I own skyrim for both xbox and pc.) I can say that I finally cheated. I used it to duplicate ingredients for the resto potion. Finished it. Created my Shredded triss armor and upgraded a piece then destroyed all the modified item except the triss armor.

Other than that. Nope after a year into the game about a month ago I cheated. Doesn't bother me.

I'd consider it cheating, cause it is way too easy to just collect everything thats pickable and sell it. I got my capacity up to 600 now without cheating. A Pickpocket-Perk (+100), Horse-Stone (+100), some enchantments and skilling endurance. Maybe you want to try this if even that isn't enough ->

Bags

Played vanilla with no console the first few times through. Now it's whatever...
It's single player, do what makes you happy...

But, if your carryweight thing really bothers you, why not look into Bandolier Bags and Pouches? You have to craft them and I believe he has an unenchanted version, so you can apply the carry weight enchant yourself. Lore friendly, cool looking and less cheaty feeling.

edit: yeah see above :)

"Player.setav carryweight 2000"
I use this command all the time and it doesn't bother me. It's so tedious having to travel back to my home and storing it. It gives me a headache so I decided to use the carryweight cheat to ease my agony. I don't understand why they even have a carryweight. We wanna have fun playing the game, not making us feel like we're doing chores. So no I don't feel guilty about it one bit.

I played for several months on the PS3 - obviously no cheating there, and then got Skyrim for the PC, which I played for about a month before I heard about the console. For a while I cheated like crazy, but that go boring after a while. Now, I mostly only cheat in order to be able to carry more. So, don't let it bug you - I imagine everyone cheats when it comes to carrying weight - its a pain to always return home all the time (especially after killing a dragon). DON'T FEEL GUILTY!!

I also power level my skills. Not sure if that's considered cheating though lol.
neilbert1 Dec 30, 2012 @ 11:47pm 
Power leveling is okay - I'll have a mage stand in the middle of nowhere and cast muffle repeatedly until they have at least 50 in Illusion (for the silent casting perk). Or stand near a mudcrab and cast skin spells or bound weapons repeatedly until Alteration or Conjuration are where I want them. Or find someplace unreachable, and then cast heal-other and sparks on a target (a horker works nicely) at the same time (this can be..tricky, however). Magic is easy to power level!

With Heavy Armor, Light Armor, and Block, find a skeleton, and let it hit you repeatedly, healing when needed. This isn't cheating, however, since this can be easily done without cheats, or even mods.

Of course, if you level up unevenly, especially with low or non combat-oriented skills, the tougher enemies you get when you level up could be too much of a challenge, if you're overeager and unwise.

i don't... never even heard of this before, of coarse i do other things with console, like: geting the Ebony Mail and Savior's Hide without doing the quests for them, and i did that for a few other pieces of armor to. (i only did these things for one of my three characters and i have more coming, not going to use console for them either... at least that is the plan)

edit: i don't even now any console commands other then "player.additem" i did learn a few others but they never stick in my mind.

For a while almost every time I loaded up the first thing I did was open up console and type the super swear of skyrim TOGGLE GOD MODE (tgm cause acronyms are better... and work in console)
David Dec 31, 2012 @ 12:14am 
wait... yeah i know TGM also... but i do not use it... well i turn it on randomly sometimes but always turn it of pretty quickly... so yeah i don't really use it.
Kawaii Ninja Dec 31, 2012 @ 12:20am 
god mode is weaksauce! Turning on god mode is beyond cheating.
David Dec 31, 2012 @ 12:24am 
yeah! that is why i never use it in combat! i just turn it on for fun sometimes and walk slowly through the town looking bad***
neilbert1 Dec 31, 2012 @ 12:35am 
Plus with god mode, your armor skills never improve, so in a way, you're just $crewing yourself.
