It's really not supposed to explode with every swing, it should only do that on forward or standing power attacks. Sounds like, for whatever reason, the power attack tracing isn't working, though I'm not sure what could be causing that.

i would use it if it didn't explode everytime you swing it.

seems over powered
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 10:41am 
Yeah, Just leaving the old one in skulldafn. I'm never going back there
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 10:21am 
Yeah, no idea what, but at least it's fixed. The script might've been active when the mod got updated or something, and that just snowballed into a mess. That's why I suggested dropping the sword since I found doing that refreshes scripts on weapons, but seems it was beyond that. So now you can either keep the original or just put it in a respawning chest and carry on with the spawned-in one.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 9:53am 
Thank you sir, The blessing is applied now, even after save and reluanch. It appears that the original had some kinda problem or something.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 9:44am 
No, that'd likely make things worse since the meshes and textures (and scripts) are contained in the BSA, so best case you'd end up with an invisible sword, worst case is the game would start crashing. I'd say, put the original sword away into a chest or something and spawn in a new one, then save and quit and unequip it after loading to see if the spawned in one has the same problem.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 9:38am 
Done. It still sin't firing correctly, unless I spawn a new sword. Same problem happens when I save and quit, then unequip it. Should I get rid of the BSA file from the mods list?
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 9:36am 
Just cut (or copy) and paste the scripts folder in there amongst those folders, so you'll end up with Interface, Strings, Scripts and Video.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 9:33am 
Okay, so where do I place the extracted scripts folder? I have Interface, Strings and Video
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 9:31am 
Ahh, ^lovely^. Gotta love esoteric web design like that.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 9:23am 
Apologies, It was just bad site formatting. It did not suggest that not chosing a package was an option.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 9:21am 
Well, there is one that comes with Skyrim's Creation Kit, simply called Archive. For it to open BSA's it needs the BSL file, but that comes with the mod so unless you deleted it you should be fine. You'd just need to install the CK. Though, it's odd you have to pay to get on the Nexus. For a premium account I imagine you'd have to, but not for a normal account, unless they changed things.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 22 @ 9:16am 
have to pay to get on nexus mods to get any BSA extraction files. Is there any way I could get an extractor without being on NexusMods?
DEvasto  [author] Aug 22 @ 8:01am 
Hmm, that's very odd. It seems like something weird is going on with the sword you currently have; for some odd reason it sounds like the script used to add the effects isn't triggering correctly, so getting them out of the BSA might help. You'll need a program to open BSA files to do that, I'd suggest FO3Archive since it's pretty simple to use. The extracted scripts should go into the Scripts folder that's in Skyrim's Data folder.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 21 @ 11:20pm 
I appears to be some strange problem where when I unequip it after loading, the blessing is not added. It can be triggered to appear, but only if I spawn a new sword.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 21 @ 11:05pm 
Dropping and picking up didn't work. And how do I extract the scripts, and where?
DEvasto  [author] Aug 21 @ 10:37pm 
It's likely not a conflict, I don't think I've heard of a conflict result like that before. You could try reinstalling the mod, extracting the scripts from the BSA (in case they're not firing correctly) or dropping the sword and picking it back up. Dunno if any of that will actually work but it's worth a shot.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 21 @ 10:14pm 
I'll disable all my other mods, and try to determine if it's one of them.. but it was working fine with them enabled when I first got the blade.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 21 @ 9:40pm 
That...is very odd. The blessing is a constant effect and should only come off when the sword's unequipped. It's clear SOME kind of Skyrim Sorcery is at work here but I haven't the foggiest idea what it could be.
Magnar Ra'Eil Aug 21 @ 9:19pm 
I'm having an issue. I've had the enhancment to stanmina and magika on my first play with it, but after I reloaded, the blessing has vanished. Unequiping and then equiping the blade does not add the blessing again.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 15 @ 3:05pm 
No problem, always happy to help.
awesomeist77 Aug 15 @ 12:01pm 
Well, here's what I did. I just copied my sword (Using the copy console command) And gave one to all of my followers. So, thanks for the help but I found another way :)
DEvasto  [author] Aug 15 @ 8:15am 
I would, but people would still have to use the help command even if they knew the ID, because item IDs aren't static; the first two digits change depending on load order. An item that has a base ID of 000fd62, for example, would in-game actually be something like 0a0fd62 or something else, depending on its position. Short of Wrye Bash, the help command is the only way to find out the in-game ID.

It won't work, of course, if the mod's not active, and I suspect that may be the issue here considering you got no results even with quotes.
awesomeist77 Aug 15 @ 7:02am 
Didn't work man, Could you maybe try and take the id for the modded weapon and put it in the desc?
awesomeist77 Aug 15 @ 6:43am 
okay. Thanks, i'll see if it works.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 14 @ 7:59pm 
Try putting Silmeri in quotes, so it'd be like this: help "silmeri".
awesomeist77 Aug 14 @ 5:13pm 
It doesn't though, It brings up quest/npc ids.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 13 @ 4:32pm 
Type "help silmeri", without quotes, into the console. That should bring up the ID for the sword.
awesomeist77 Aug 13 @ 2:41pm 
WHat's the ID The sword didn't spawn where I found it last time
DEvasto  [author] Aug 11 @ 8:08am 
Funny, mostly I've heard people saying they want it to be EASIER to obtain. It's certainly not exactly a cakewalk to get to its location considering you need to get through a chunk of the main quest to even get up there. But, I know full well there's no satisfying everyone and there's no better place to really put it that I can see. The Infinity Sword has Labyrinthian and not everyone wants to have to go through the College of Winterhold questline, so it's at where it's at for now until it gets its own questline. If I ~do~ nerf either sword, it won't be by a lot. These are supposed to be powerful artifacts after all and I want that power to be noteworthy.
Reginald Aug 10 @ 6:35pm 
Too powerful. Maybe its just my equipment (even though I only have one equipment that boosts my one-handed damage..and increases it by 15%), but this weapon kills my enemies in one hits mostly..two hit kills are rare. I agree with some others that its too easy to obtain.
DEvasto  [author] Aug 9 @ 4:15pm 
I don't like to make things overly easy to attain, especially when it comes to things like this. Certainly down the line when (hopefully) the sword has its own quest and location, it's not going to be a cakewalk (at the same time though, it's not gonna be overly difficult). The Throat of the World I felt was the most fitting vanilla location for it, for the time being.
Master Assassin D Aug 9 @ 4:05pm 
i shall give it a try without the mod first to see if i can get up there whatever i encounter i can kill so thats not an issue but its no good if the game crashes or glitches or does that you cant go further in this direction message........or maybe you could move the weapon to a more reachable place for earlier on in the story say winterhold palace on the throne or perhaps on the bed of ulfric stormcloak?
DEvasto  [author] Aug 9 @ 3:46pm 
I imagine you could, with a horse and a lot of determination, but getting up there before you're supposed to might cause problems, so caution would be advised if you wanted to try that.
Master Assassin D Aug 9 @ 1:17pm 
is it possible to climb up to where Paarthurnax is before you reach that point in the story? i ask this because im sure like many i want this mighty weapon earlier in the game
DEvasto  [author] Jul 13 @ 4:51pm 
Glad it's all in good order now! :D
Atlas Maltael Jul 13 @ 4:50pm 
now silmeri works anditsthe best weapon mod iv got. keep up the good work friend!
Atlas Maltael Jul 13 @ 4:48pm 
it solved, but a tip to everyone the "hd textures pack dlc" might crash the game in nearly all the mods on the workshop, it barely improoves the graphics, dont download it. i know its free but its not worth the fuz.
Atlas Maltael Jul 13 @ 4:41pm 
thx for the uptade dude if keeps crashing ill report.
DEvasto  [author] Jul 10 @ 9:27pm 
And update is out! I've reduced the majority of the textures to half-res (Most were 2048x2048 pixels, now they're all 1024x1024) and compressed them, so now the mod is much lighter than it was before. Used to be 72 megs, now it's a svelte 6! Hopefully that should help resolve crashing issues some have been having.
DEvasto  [author] Jul 10 @ 9:14pm 
It might be due to the texture resolution and your rig/graphics card not being able to handle it. Not to worry though, I'll be releasing an update within the next few minutes that cuts down the filesize of the textures.
Atlas Maltael Jul 10 @ 8:37pm 
this mod makes my game crash

i got it on Throat of the World behind the top :D
DREXICOR Jun 27 @ 7:41pm 
maybe like a DNA cell with out the strips and the same colors of both silmeri and the infinity sword and diffrent types of sword hilts as both of your swords and that jould be awesome cause these are my favorite swords on steam :also at the tip of the sword please make it white these are some suggestions so you can do these so you dont hove to use them in your next mod
jgrissino Jun 27 @ 4:44pm 
yeah, a name would be hard. maybe something like "Blade of The Elements", and as for the design, it could maybe have runes along the blade, and could be jagged like a saw on both sides. again, just spitballing here.
DEvasto  [author] Jun 27 @ 3:55pm 
I was actually planning to do that at some point, of coures I'd have to figure out the design of the fused sword, what its name would be among other things.
jgrissino Jun 26 @ 8:41pm 
hmmm, maybe you should make a mod where you can combine both into some epic sword that deals damage with all three elements. it would, of course require both mods to work. just throwing the idea out there, sorry if its too difficult, and good job on the mod!
DREXICOR Jun 25 @ 8:42am 
sorry but over all i love these swords you make silmeri and the infinity sword pretty cool dude
