By the way Aventhorn, i felt the daedric cutlass needed something so i added some detail to the basket (copied from the helmet): http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h97/dark...rates/daed2.jpg

I like what you did with the Daedric Cutlass basket. I just looked at the original bethesda textures and tried to fit the style Daedric one I was least happy with because it just didnt have the flare of the rest or the rest were just too OTT it took aways some of the charm of a daedric cutlass but you have given it a real good makeover.

The flags are looking cool too, I will quickly check what some of the other gear looks like in game then post a screeny.

EDIT: And here is that screeny right here arrr!!

I've added some more coats by me as well, a black, brown, red and blue one.
Also made a red striped shirt out of Aventhorns blue one. Screenshots coming soon.

I been thinking about getting information off the net about pirates and sticking it on a text document which can be then used as an in game book. Heres a shot of my cover for it.

A History Of Pirates

Opinions please.

p.s big thanks to Phoenixamon for letting me use parts of one of her retextured books.

Heres what I found on a site.
QUOTE

It’s safe to assume that life at sea was one great bore for pirates. A great contrast from land life: sailing meant weeks of boredom searching for prey, with only intermittent bursts of excitement as victims were sighted boarded and then plundered. With nothing to occupy the attention of bloodthirsty pirates, conflicts, and ultimately fights were common.

It was at such times that the captain intervened, and controlled them with either fear or respect. The captain did not have the last word, as in many cases the pirate vessel was run democratically. As with any long voyage in those days, food preservation presented a major challenge for pirates. Pirates would stock up on bottled beer before a long voyage, as water would soon become undrinkable, due to its salty taste.

The pirates primarily ate hard tack (long-lasting biscuits); although for longer voyages limes would be provided as a source of vitamin c. If they were lucky, the pirates would have a few hens on board the ship, which would provide both fresh eggs and meat. The pirates found a seemingly unlimited supply of meat with the slaughterfish that thrived in the ocean. As well as being delicious, these fish were easy prey for the pirates. One of the most important tasks was to stock the ship well enough with fresh supplies of water and food for the next voyage.

When the pirates returned from their plundering escapades, they were ready for fun. If returning from a successful voyage, the pirates quickly depleted their blood stained prizes in the local taverns, and alehouses. Often times, drunken pirates in their daze for pleasures, spent thousands of septims in a single night (in those days 10 septims bought a small herd of cattle!). Pleasures such as rum, food, wine, and gambling, made poor tavern masters rich overnight. In short, the pirates wasted in the taverns all they had earned, by giving themselves to all manner of voluptuousness they could afford.

Life on land wasn't’t just fun and games, for the successful pirate it involved a heck of a lot of work. This work was carried out before the pirates were to sail again, and concerned preparing the ship for the next voyage, and making sure it was in good working order. After a long voyage, barnacles and seaweed would attach to the bottom of the vessel, and the bottom of the vessel would need to be careened (scraping debris from the bottom of the ship). After a good battle, sails, and rigging would also have to be replaced, or repaired.

It is probably an obvious statement to say that the main force behind piracy, has always been the search for wealth. Pirates were able to acquire amazing riches, and goods, through their campaigns. The assets, of which the most noted, and often most prized were; gold and silver pieces, currency, jewelry, and precious stones. But the actual pirate booty, was acquired from looted merchant ships which usually included items such as linens, cloths, food, anchors, rope, and sometimes medical supplies. The cargo even included rare articles such as spices, sugar, indigo, and quinine.

Choosing the right ship and the right cargo to pillage, was an essential part of any pirate ship captain’s duty, wishing to avoid mutiny. However, failing to attack a promising ship, could also result in a similar outcome, since most of his crew were sailing, for a share in the plundered goods.

Another concern was the actual method for dividing the assets acquired. The pirate code, stated that, any loot plundered, had to be shared out equally. Some treasure was more easily divided among the crew than others. For example, certain coins, such as septims were cut up into smaller change however jewels were not as easily divisible.

Most pirates were extreme squanderers and rarely accumulated enough treasure to bury. Due to the danger and uncertainty of their profession, they were usually determined to live life for the present, and not save for the future.

Although the original purpose of the pirate flag is unknown, it may have been designed to strike fear into the hearts of potential victims, and encourage a speedy surrender. The mere sight of the black and white flag probably sent chills down the spines of many a captain and crew; although the black flag was not as greatly feared as the red flag. The sight of a red flag meant that no mercy would be shown in battle.

Each pirate captain had a differently designed Jolly Roger (pirate flag). Often, the flags would show symbols of death and destruction. The name "Jolly Roger" is thought to have originated from a nickname for the devil, "Old Roger".

I think it's a fantastic idea! I liked what that article had to say, and I think this would be a nice finishing touch to a mod that lets you live a pirate's life in Oblivion. Great idea, I say "go for it!"

My only problem with said idea is its infringing copyright. Maybe if you wrote you own version based on readings from the internet it would be ok.

Good point. damn damn damn damn.

I will have to get my creative head on and start writing biggrin.gif no worries. It will give me a chance to caress my inner writer as I have always meant to write a book but chickened out, lol.

I will use the information i have currently as a baseplate.

It would be a shame to waste the book cover wink.gif

I know you were thinking of new ship models and I just wanted to draw your attention to another wip.

New Ships

A minor retexturing of the woodwork and it would be a cool navy battleship. Though it would be a bee hatch to texture.

The boats not bad, it would do for a fishing ship. I'll pm him about it, see if hes planning on doing more work on it. Someone did a fantastic ship for morrowind, but i can't find it.

Hehe, and we'll have to start being careful on how much extra we include, cause all up the mod is about 45mb now (including textures and meshes).

Don't get me wrong, i don't think its a poor model, but for some reason it just stands out as a fishing ship to me. wink.gif He said its fine for me to use it, and apparently hes working on a couple of ship models, so it will be good to see what else he comes up with!
