whats the id for the black crystel

Make sure you're writing it exactly as I did, with the quotemarks. If none of the IDs turn up even after that then chances are the mod's not active, in which case you'll wanna check the Data Files section of the launcher.

Putting this in: help "black sword" should turn up its ID.
dark shadow kitten Apr 12 @ 5:20pm 
hey
dark shadow kitten Apr 12 @ 5:16pm

whats th ID number
HellHound Mar 11 @ 7:26pm 
Very well, for now the sword will be kept in a chest
DEvasto  [author] Mar 11 @ 6:34pm 
I'll see what I can do. I think mainly its the normal maps at fault so I'll touch on them, the diffuse textures I'll prolly keep uncompressed because, with how dark they are, compression really mucks them up.
HellHound Mar 11 @ 3:26pm 
yeah maybe, can you fix it? i realy like the sword :p
DEvasto  [author] Mar 11 @ 2:41pm 
Most likely has to do with the textures. It shouldn't be a total lockup though, it may take a little bit for the game to load it. That's the only possible reason it'd happen though, that I know.
HellHound Mar 11 @ 2:34pm 
If you equip the sword the game freezes
DEvasto  [author] Dec 31, 2015 @ 7:36pm 
It's different depending on if it's the unbalanced sword or the full one. The 2-handed unbalanced sword has a base damage of 20, while the 1-handed is 16. The fully powered 2-handed is 25 while the 1-handed is 20.
ThePopcornColonel Dec 31, 2015 @ 9:48am 
how much damage does the sword have?
DEvasto  [author] Jun 18, 2015 @ 7:43pm 
It can be either, there's a one handed and a two handed version you can make. I think the one-handed version ends with (1h) but I could be mistaken. The help command should show the name of the item along with the ID.

is it a greatsword or a sword?
DEvasto  [author] Jun 18, 2015 @ 7:39pm 
Usually I put stuff in the world, like I did with a fair number of things in Artifacts of Ultima, but the Black Sword was an exception since in Ultima 7 the Avatar forged the thing, so I kept to that. But, how folk go about gettin' it isn't a big deal to me, so long as they can enjoy the mod.
Dank Hill Jun 18, 2015 @ 7:35pm 
thanks man, i wasnt gonna subscribe if there wasnt a console code. Looks great! i just dont like crafting stuff lol
DEvasto  [author] Jun 18, 2015 @ 7:34pm 
Your best bet is to do help "black sword" in the console, that'll bring up the ID for the sword. The first two digits in the ID change depending on the load order, so doing the help command is necessary if you don't have Wrye Bash or Mod Organizer.
Dank Hill Jun 18, 2015 @ 1:59pm 
is there a console command at all?
DEvasto  [author] May 29, 2015 @ 10:04pm 
Dwarven Centurions, Dwarven boss chests and Falmer boss chests are probably your best bets, but it can also (rarely) come out of dwarven spiders, Falmer, or ore veins.

oh ok thanks for the help and what is the fastest way to get blackrock
DEvasto  [author] May 29, 2015 @ 3:59pm 
There's conditions that have to be met before it'll show up. You need the Ebony Smithing perk and at least 1 piece of blackrock before it'll appear in the Ebony category, plus it can only be made at the Skyforge, and as such won't show up at normal forges.
END May 29, 2015 @ 12:29pm 
the mod wont seem to apper in the black smith tab at all
DEvasto  [author] Feb 28, 2015 @ 7:22pm 
No problem, and thanks. :3
Kedunad Ethiarien Feb 28, 2015 @ 7:20pm 
I see, It's not that big of a deal to me, I just wanted to know if there was some way to smooth it out. thanks for the help. Keep making awesome mods dude, love it. :)
DEvasto  [author] Feb 28, 2015 @ 7:16pm 
The lag is due to the textures being HD and uncompressed, so the game hangs for a little bit since it's loading them. I experience the same thing and don't really mind it since it doesn't affect gameplay (in my case), but that's just me.

If ya wanna fix it you'll have to extract the textures from the BSA and compress them or reduce their size (They're 2048 normally, so you can downscale all or some to 1024). Both the 1-handed and 2-handed versions of the sword use the same textures.
Kedunad Ethiarien Feb 28, 2015 @ 6:03pm 
I've noticed that whenever I equip the sword, it lags my game up a bit. is there a way to fix it? it's with the 1-handed version, I dont know about the 2-handed because I play light armor, single handed weapons, destruction magic and bows. how does one fix the little burp?
DEvasto  [author] Feb 27, 2015 @ 11:49am 
You need to have at least 1 piece of blackrock before the recipe shows up. If ya do and it still isn't showing, check the Misc section in the smithing menu. The sword is classified as both Blackrock (a custom material keyword) and Ebony, so it might swippity-swap between the two categories.
DeadMaster Feb 27, 2015 @ 4:59am 
ive tried to make the Black sword with the skyforge but cant seem to find it on the ebony material please can you help me
DEvasto  [author] Feb 26, 2015 @ 5:21pm 
Looking up the DDB, I...can honestly say I don't see much of a resemblence. The Dark Dragon Blade is a pretty anime looking sword, what with the fire-plume like blade and it nearly being as tall or a bit taller than Ryu, while the Black Sword here is a fair bit more utilitarian (on top of actually pre-dating the DDB).
DeadMaster Feb 26, 2015 @ 3:31pm 
nice sword freind kinda looks like the dark dragon blade from ninja gaiden games but i might be mistaken but cool
ying_ko13 Feb 5, 2015 @ 4:20pm 
Found "Tenebrae", now looking forward to this one. Jolly good.
ying_ko13 Feb 4, 2015 @ 7:25pm 
Yes, have found a couple of two stone yields.
DEvasto  [author] Feb 4, 2015 @ 6:15pm 
Yeah, keep at it. There are various avenues you can find it in but all of them have fairly low yields, though I think in falmer boss chests and ~maybe~ dwarven boss chests there's a small chance of getting 2, of course that's if you're lucky.

In a future update, I'll most likely reduce the requirement from 10 to 5 since I'll be bringing ebony or a metal into the crafting recipe (since I've recently found out the blade of the Black Sword is supposed to be metal, it's the hilt that's blackrock).
ying_ko13 Feb 4, 2015 @ 5:55pm 
This black rock really is rare, wowzers! Quite a challenge. Haven't given up though.
Hugo Jan 23, 2015 @ 3:54am 
To difficult, to obtain..............................
DEvasto  [author] Jan 18, 2015 @ 12:44pm 
Haha, nah, not unless you snag the Dragonborn DLC, the chair comes with that.
EliteCompact Jan 18, 2015 @ 3:39am 
is the chair included?
King Atom Jan 5, 2015 @ 3:31pm 
Oh, duh, I should have realized that... *facetalon*
DEvasto  [author] Jan 5, 2015 @ 3:01pm 
You can use the console (activated by hitting the ~ button) and type "player.additem [item ID]", sans quotes and with the [item id] replaced with the Blackrock's item code, which you can find out by typing "help blackrock" (sans quotes) into the console.
King Atom Jan 5, 2015 @ 2:51pm 
How could you spawn it in?
peajay64 Jan 2, 2015 @ 9:44am 
Actually if your a cheater like me you could just spawn some black rock ore, or even the sword for that reason. But, I don't explore enough this sword is too epic to not have any efort into getting the ore. :3
peajay64 Jan 2, 2015 @ 9:42am 
epik
DEvasto  [author] Dec 30, 2014 @ 2:03pm 
No problem, happy hunting. :3
ying_ko13 Dec 30, 2014 @ 2:02pm 
Thank you. No doubt I will enjoy the search. Jolly good.
DEvasto  [author] Dec 30, 2014 @ 2:00pm 
It can pop up in several places: Ore veins, Dwarven Spiders, on Falmer and in Falmer boss chests, in Dwarven boss chests and on Dwarven Centurions. It's rarer in some of those than it is on others, and the boss chests have a chance for 2 to show up.
ying_ko13 Dec 30, 2014 @ 1:33pm 
Precisely, where does one find black rock ore?
ying_ko13 Dec 30, 2014 @ 1:29pm 
Well done.
