Can I get a confirmation that the most recent update is functional? The version I uploaded to nexus is broken, but I think that was just the Zip file. Is anyone here able to play it?
Araanim  [autor] 27 Ago às 5:58 
@Dragerch Hmmmmm... Idk. I did have that happen once or twice when I was still working on it, but then it would just magically work with a second try. Maybe it'll work itself out? I just updated the file (finally!). Let your mod update and try it again. The BSA might have been missing a script or something. I just meticulously went through the BSA to make sure everything was in order. I'm gonna play through both quests tonight on a clean file and do a thorough check of everything.
Dragerch 27 Ago às 5:29 
@Araanim It was added through the quest.
Araanim  [autor] 27 Ago às 5:03 
@Dragerch Hmm... It should be usable. Did you add it via console or was it added through the actual quest? It always worked for me.
Dragerch 27 Ago às 2:02 
Hey @Araanim so, i have the Call of Cthulhu in Shout list, but it appears in grey and can´t use it neither activate.

Also, I want to thank you for this mod, and all the hard work. Thanks!

I've been seeing that a lot lately. Sounds like Steam/ Valve broke something in the workshop. Hopefully they'll get around to fixing it before too long.
Araanim  [autor] 25 Ago às 5:47 
So an update: turns out my BSA wasn't packing the silent sound files to time out the dialogue, that's why it doesn't appear on the screen for more than a second. But, now I can't seem to get the BSA to pack correctly and upload. I don't know what the problem is, but I can't seem to update anything right now. Stay posted.

So you do take suggestions? Good! I have a decent idea. If you do the "Dark side" I was thinking that you could make it so if you betray them (by killing another member of the cult) you may get captured and you will be taken to a religeous room where a preist fo cthulhu (or something like that) Tells you to beg for "penance" to Cthulhu and if you do they will release you and forget you pase "sins" against them.

So I've made a lot of the fixes that needed fixed, but now I can't seem to update to Steam. -_- Soooooooooooo it might be a little bit before things get updated. In the meantime I'll try to keep the Nexus version up to date, so you'll be able to get the fixes there. I don't know why this isn't working. Thank you for your patience.
Araanim  [autor] 18 Ago às 11:23 
It's listed under your shouts? What do you mean you can't use it?
Dragerch 18 Ago às 11:15 
I am in front of the door of Cthulhu and have the Call of Cthulhu, but i can´t use it, what can i do?
Araanim  [autor] 18 Ago às 7:15 
@TheOnlyMiller Also, after you talk to Al'hazred you have to walk around on the iceberg a bit to hit the trigger box so that she will appear. She appears right by the boats and should forcegreet you as soon as she does.
Araanim  [autor] 17 Ago às 20:48 
@TheOnlyMiller Yeah I messed that up a little bit I'm in the process of fixing it. You have to kill all of the cultists, then talk to Al'hazred, THEN Tiamat will appear. I messed something up while shifting it.
TheOnlyMiller 17 Ago às 14:14 
I killed the cultists and it says talk to Tiamat but it doesn't appear, any pointers on what to do?
Araanim  [autor] 17 Ago às 10:44 
@Venice Did you kill the cultists first? You may have missed a piece of the quest; not sure why. When you got to search for the cultists you eventually get close enough to the clearing that you trigger a posse that will start following you. The leader of the posse will come up to you and talk to you. Talking to her advances the quest and gives you a quest marker for the actual cultist camp. When you kill Obed Marsh, it advances and you then talk to the Hunter. If you missed one of those it might mess things up. It may be that the posse doesn't appear quickly enough and you just stumble upon the cultists yourself. I'm trying to add workarounds if things don't play out exactly as they're supposed to, but sometimes it's hard to account for everything. Restart from when you find the bodies on the ship and try it from there. I'll see what I can do.
VeniceOG420 17 Ago às 10:33 
The hunter will not talk to me he said "do you need something"
Araanim  [autor] 17 Ago às 6:39 
@Steve I'm always open for suggestions!

@jameschieble Technically no. I'm eventually going to put a check that won't start the quest until you complete the main quest and the Miraak quest, but I haven't done so yet.

@Venice Try searching more westward, a little west of the apprentice stone. When you get close a posse will find you and lead you the rest of the way.

@Ragingpanda The giant Leech is Y'lla (the little ones are Y'lla Spawn), and the worm (he doesn't really fly) is called Idh'Yaa (the little ones are Yuggs).
[T.C.B] Ragingpanda112 16 Ago às 17:12 
What is the base name of the giant leech? Also the cool flying worm.
VeniceOG420 16 Ago às 13:38 
jamesschieble 16 Ago às 12:29 
do you have to kill mirrak before this?
Steve the hunter of tri. 16 Ago às 8:21 
You said you have more stuff to come right. So I was wondering if you take suggestions.
CharlieMcfaul 15 Ago às 16:33 
this mod looks amazing!
Araanim  [autor] 14 Ago às 7:35 
@HEDJEE142 He should follow you into the ship Idk why that's happening. Someone else had the same problem. I'll try to fix it this weekend. I'll add a script so when you kill the twins he teleports to the ship just to make sure he's there.
Yuno Duri-ai 13 Ago às 21:28 
@Araanim The alternate quest sounds amazing. >:D (If it seems like im a little slow I'm currently sick) But again thank you for answering my questions!
HEDJEE142 13 Ago às 17:44 
I got to the point where you defeat the twin firefly monsters and had to talk to the hunter but i cant find him. Help?

The quest marker doesnt help.
iPutThisRandomly 13 Ago às 11:36 
holy shit are those drowners
Araanim  [autor] 13 Ago às 5:49 
@Yuno Haha no problem. I've become very much indoctrinated with Lovecraft lore since I started this mod. I'm part of a Facebook group that fights about this stuff non-stop. What is and isn't Lovecraftian, why mythos video games never work because it's not Lovecraft if you can actually win, why actually showing the monster in movies or games ruins the Lovecraft aspect, etc. I've heard it all, and I'm trying to do the best I can.

Also, the alternate quest (where you join the cult) will hopefully be much more of a spiral into madness, where you awaken Cthulhu and unleash him upon Skyrim. That should be much more fun for the mad ones out there, the ones who just want to watch the world burn. :-)
Yuno Duri-ai 12 Ago às 17:09 
@Arranim it seems like a very good idea to do that and I thank you for seeing were I am coming from! I hope that I indeed will have a hard time fighting Cthulhu also thank you for answering my question I honestly thought I would get abused for looking like a Lovecraftian nerd
Araanim  [autor] 11 Ago às 8:00 
@Yuno :-) The problem is that Dragonborn already kind of ends with you at Hermaeus Mora's mercy, powerless against the daedra in true Lovecraft fashion. I don't really want to just do that again. And the first mod is all about fighting super-monsters, so it seems anti-climactic to not fight Cthulhu. You're not some schmuck; you're the Last Dragonborn! I'd like to give it a true, grim, hopeless Lovecraft ending, but that's just not all that fun in a game. And I don't want to do the old "you stopped him this time, but he's still out there!" That seems almost cliche in horror at this point. So I decided to go with a real victory, against all odds. He won't be easy to kill, I promise you that. And I'm trying to find ways to draw out the horror and keep Him as much a presence as possible until the very last minute. I know it's not ideal to most die-hard Lovecraft fans, but that's where I went with it.
Yuno Duri-ai 11 Ago às 1:02 
okay all good
Araanim  [autor] 10 Ago às 5:58 
@Yuno I realize that, but it doesn't make for a very fun video game.
Yuno Duri-ai 8 Ago às 22:17 
just a little nit pick but Cuthulu is not a monster but an idea he losses all of his purpose when you give him a life bar or even some signifacation of hurting him so maybe you could see him and he dissapears and your character goes mad...just an idea
darkangelsean 7 Ago às 3:30 
i have the quest to find the kidnappers in the swamp, and i cant talk to the hunter or get the quest to pop after killing the cultist
Zak 2 Ago às 14:13 
I'm enjoying the mod but sometimes the subtitles go zipping by without me clicking on anything.
jamesschieble 27 Jul às 5:56 
this is odd but I am watching a video about the Cthulhu Mythos.
Araanim  [autor] 24 Jul às 5:46 

The quest is finished, Cthulhu is finished! Finally! There's still stuff I'd like to tweak, and I'm sure there will bugs, but for all intents and purposes this is ready to play! Give it a try!

Next week I will start a new game, completely mod-free, and download the mod from Steam to make sure everything's uploaded and working right. (Sometimes you can't tell, since everythings already on your hard drive.) I think I've ironed everything out, but I want to make sure. In the mean time, let me know if you find anything!
Araanim  [autor] 16 Jul às 6:05 
Uploaded a sneak peak of Cthulhu. Not finished, obviously, but pretty cool so far!
Araanim  [autor] 14 Jul às 6:24 
HOLY SHIT I figured out the problem with Cthulhu! Turns out it was some stupid problem with having two different textures on a single mesh (from attaching the eyes to the base mesh, but they still kept their own textures) and that made everything not work. So I got him in the game! I've got some things I need to fix with the rigging and textures, but he is IN THE GAME. This is good. This is very good. I'll let you know when I update!
Araanim  [autor] 13 Jul às 9:00 
Hmmm, that happened a couple times to me too. I think she kinda shuts down if there's enemie nearby, I'm not sure why. Maybe fast-travel then come back or wait. Or just reload and kill all the cultists again. I'll try to figure out why that's happening.
Creature Feature 10 Jul às 12:47 
I figured it out (about 1 1/2 hours ago) but now I can't talk to Tiamat... sorry for asking so much but I raelly want to finish the quest it's very well done. Please Help. Thank you.
Creature Feature 10 Jul às 9:12 
One last question.
How do you activate the giant robot under the sea?
Araanim  [autor] 10 Jul às 8:36 
Hm. It's supposed to appear when you appear back on Innsmouth. I'll look into it.
Creature Feature 9 Jul às 20:34 
NVM i just spawned it in w/ console commands.
Creature Feature 9 Jul às 16:28 
I escaped R'lyeh but the necronomicon won't appear. PLEASE HELP! Awesome mod btw.
Araanim  [autor] 9 Jul às 9:32 
@Level 18 Everything is done but not polished, but I do not have a Cthulhu. He is still just a giant Gargoyle. I haven't done the alternate path where you join the cult and burn the world, so if you're a madman you'll just have to wait. I'll let you know when I get the Sunken One all modeled - i just have to figure out the process. But yes, the main quest is finished and functional. I've played through several times with no major problems. I highly recommend it :-)
Araanim  [autor] 9 Jul às 9:28 
@Swiggity You gotta find the right Necronomicon to take you back. I kinda wanted to force you to wander around in there, but I can understand it being a bit challenging. I'm trying to think of a better way to guide you, without just making it a linear level. Maybe quest markers to ALL the books, and you have to figure out the right one? That's not a bad idea.
Creature Feature 8 Jul às 22:30 
How do you escape R'lyeh?
I Swear She Was Level 18 8 Jul às 14:27 
Is this ready to go or still in production? I can't wait for it to be finish.
Araanim  [autor] 5 Jul às 13:38 
Ah, that's really my fault. The nexus version is not up to date at all. I keep forgetting to updating the Nexus version. I apologize! I'm glad you like the mod.
Console_Peasant 3 Jul às 0:07 
Okay, so I switched over to the Workshop edition of HTBM and retried everything and it works again. Crisis averted, and I get to keep my saves. Keep up the good work and sorry for the comment earlier.
