It's November 11, 2011. Todd Howard has just unleashed Skyrim into the world. No patches. Release build. Take his word for it: it just works. Join me today as I play through the original release of Skyrim, but every time I encounter a glitch, bug or exploit.. my health is reduced by 5. It's going to be quite a journey...
A HUGE THANK YOU TO Nighthawk and the Team at Skyblivion for helping duct tape together a working copy of the release build of skyrim for me! And No I cannot legally distribute it to you sorry...
As Bethesda have just released starfield that has been a relatively bug free game excluding all of the exploits I felt it was important to go back in time and see if we can compare the release build of skyrim to a starfield review of sorts. Now as Todd Howard would never lie and every one of his games have the it just works seal of gameplay approval it is impossible for us to have a non perfectly balanced experience! So begone Skyrim Anniversary edition because we are going to the original!
What you have seen here today is part of a fantastic perfectly balanced gameplay series on youtube where I go from game to game and break them with wacky exploits to gain things like unlimited gold and infinite money all in a fantastic montage. If you enjoyed this then be sure to check out more. The style is similar to RT game and callmekevin in parts. A large influence on this series has come from Valefisk and The Killian Experience.

@hmvollbanane1259 Mês atrás
To be fair it's due to unfair circumstances as the physics engine is tied to the framerate and anything above 144 will make it go nuts (hence all the flying stuff throughout the video), so it wasn't really a glitch encountered back when it was released and could have been fixed by him simply limiting the frame rate (though I suppose that would constitute interfering with Todd's full vision)

41:42 - Rare sighting of the non-destroyed Hall of the Vigilant. If Dawnguard is installed, the hall is destroyed when the player reaches level 10, which in practice is usually _before_ the player actually reaches this location in the first place. Presumably, Spiffing Brit isn't using any DLC, since this is supposed to be "Todd's uncompromised vision," but I'm pretty sure Nord Nordinson is not at level 10 yet anyway.
@stormbornapostle5188 2 meses atrás
They should have held off destroying it until you start the first actual Dawnguard quest. Having one of a very few Restoration trainers die is bullshit, even if they add a new one later.

Lol, if you use Alternate Start - Live Another Life, you can actually start a new character as a Vigilant and you spawn into the hall. In fact, in my hundreds of hours of skyrim, I don't recall ever seeing the destroyed hall. It's only ever been in it's pre-destroyed state.
@infernaldaedra 2 meses atrás
Yes it's actually pretty rare I got lucky enough that on my last playthrough AI saw it again. The Vigilant of Stendarr were horribly underutilized as a faction in Skyrim :(
@HappyBeezerStudios 2 meses atrás
Yeah, I wish it would happen later. At least until you start Dawnguard AND have visited the place. Because it simply being destroyed lacks all meaning and context. If you went there and met the people and afterwards it gets hit by vampires the impact is much bigger. It gives the player a reason for revenge.

@Xan4591 2 meses atrás
I'll never forget my favorite Skyrim glitch. It wasn't release build, but I think it was the patch before the DLC. I started a new game and went for a dragonless Skyrim for as long as I could (I got to lv40 and finished almost every faction quest). I was riding up to that very same altar at the end of the video because I wanted to see if the Dragon was there. The screen shook like a dragon took off as I got close. Then a dead horse shot out of a nearby wall at me. No dragon, though, so I took the treasure and ran.
@prettypyrenees 6 dias atrás
This is obviously intentional symbolism explicitly placed there by God Hodd Toward. The shaking symbolizes the beginning of the apocalypse. The dead horse is obviously referring to the first horseman, which is the catalyst for the end times. Since skyrim is partially about apocalypse, I say it fits perfectly, just as Hodd Toward intended.

That only means they messed something up. What would a Bethesda game be without the bethesdaness. The special kinds of bugs. Now what I want for Elder Scrolls 6 (Or Fallout 5, or whatever they do next) on a technical level is basically two fixes: Finally properly decouple physics and game logic from framerate. And a bigger plugin counter. For the esp pointer they could totally make it backwards compatible. The FormID pointer is 32 bit, but the leading 8 bit are for plugin count and the other 24 for stuff inside the plugins. With a 64 bit pointer we could have 48 bit for the plugin count for about 1100 billion plugins and still keep 24 bit for content. Yes that would still mean we are limited to about 16.7 million "things" in a plugin, but that shouldn't be an issue. And the compatibility could be done by the fact that old 32 bit plugins simply sit in the first 255 plugins just like before. so instead of PPCC CCCC we could have PPPP PPPP PPPP PPCC CCCC And the leading 32 bit just get filled in with zeroes if they don't exist (like with legacy 32 bit plugins) And yes, there are lots of plugins that got carried along. I have a hair mod in Fallout 4 that was originally released for Oblivion, but carried along through Fallout 3, Skyrim and Fallout 4. Or the amount of mods that got converted from old Skyrim to the Special Edition.

My guy Faendal is a bloody incredible first follower. Once he's joined you, you can trade with him and take back all the gold you've paid him for training your archery, and he can take it to level 50, which is insane that early in the game.

@campbellhansen7533 2 meses atrás
F, I break rule 2 every day. Anyway, fun fact: in the release and early builds, the “iron fists” (I believe that’s the name) perk in Heavy Armor, was bugged, and where it’s supposed to only apply base armor + perk bonuses to your unarmed attacks, it will actually stack with the current armor level of your gauntlets. So if you have 1,000 armor points from the gauntlets, you have +1,000 damage to your punches.

​@@oldcat1790 You joke, but without the community patching stuff for free a lot of Bethesda games would be unplayable. In my first playthrough it was impossible for me to finish the thieves guild AND the sequence were you travel back in time to learn Dragon Rend. I had to put in console commands to force the respective quests into completion. The best part was when i looked this up people agreed that it is an extremely common occurence that both of those quests bug out. .......why, Todd?
@TheMoltenM 2 meses atrás
My PC was so outdated when Skyrim released, I bought it for Xbox 360. Couldn't even absorb the first dragon soul on day one. They patched it a few days later, and the first dragon would fly half-way down the hill and then start flying backwards back up the hill. Good times. Thanks, Todd.

On the release build of Skyrim on PS3 I killed a dragon, absorbed its soul, then somehow the skeleton ended up in Whiterun on the path between the blacksmith and market. It never despawned, so the rest of my playthrough NPCs pathed around, and there was no moveable object heavy enough to shove it to the side. Ahh, memories
@oldcat1790 2 meses atrás
The best part is, it never was completely fixed by official patches. There is only a mod fixing it.
@NYKevin100 2 meses atrás
​@@oldcat1790Even the mods don't really "fix" the bug. They just sort of recognize when the bug has happened and do the scripting equivalent of "open the console, click the dragon, and type disable and markfordelete." (Which, incidentally, is the standard way of getting rid of almost any unwanted object in the game - but I wouldn't recommend doing markfordelete on random objects unless you know what you're doing, because some quests break if you delete a ref they want to interact with. Disable is *usually* fine, unless it's an NPC who has to participate in some cutscene, because then that cutscene will probably break.)

Makes me wonder: If you saved after lowering your health via the console, exited and restarted the game, would it crash that often. Reasoning behind that is as follows: You mess with the game as soon as you use console commands. As you want to beat the game as "intended", it would maybe lessen the amount of glitches/crashes. Plus you are more true to what you want to achieve. That said, I know everyone's just waiting for the glitches^^ Love your content, looking forward to more while I catch up to what you already made. Stay save and healthy
