@zerghnandus If I remember correctly, there were two other people involved with this mod. However I don't know if Exile being the actual developer means he is the only one that would be able to give permission. (proabably so) It might be worth a shot trying to get in touch with the others? eNc | Henrik and Leutian Kane. Again, I don't know at what level they were involved but it might be a good starting point. This mod is amazing but at the same time has soo much room for additional pieces. Would love to see something this in depth for Skyrim SE's Creation kit! :)

@buufball no issues here on my three server cluster.. Probably a corrupt mod on the server or on your side?
buufball Nov 17 @ 10:01am 
Anyone else not able to connect to their server when this mod is active? Mod is forgotten.

@Art3mis Soon as Blender 2.8 comes out i will start hammering on it. I will need someone that knows his/her way around coding since i dont know how those UI wheels work. I intend on working mostly on the modeling/texturing side. As for suggestions i will keep an eye on this thread and post here when i finally get to it. :steamhappy:
Art3mis Nov 16 @ 1:26pm 
plenty of suggestions on my end
zerghnandus Nov 16 @ 1:07pm 
@Art3mis Will do. I have lots of ideas. But since the author cant be contacted because hes probably been abducted by aliens and is trying to survive on an island full of dinos i will end up having to start from scratch. But i have enough ideas to go and when i post it i will be keeping an open mind for more suggestions. :steamhappy:

@zerghnandus well when you do take it over let us all know. coz this mod needs improvements.

@MysticalAK I dont think theres a way to just "take it over", but im waiting on Blender 2.8 to come out to make a mod that has all this one has and then some.
