Your work is essential to Skyrim...Very good implementation of part of WAC.
I know it's not on the agenda but technically could some animals (Lynx etc...) be port to Skyrim as well?
I would like to find a way to get it done, but I think in order for it to really work I would have to make some edits to the texture UV so it wasn't obvious that it comes from the same thing....but doing that for a lot of models....will take forever >_<. I don't know if you know how it works but basically Waalx remodeled those meshes from the original lions and made them look really impressive. But because of that they still share the original Texture UV map placement of the Lions they were made from. Then he paints the appropriate texture, and you get a new model. It's useful and efficient, the only problem is that it makes it obvious where the original texture came from
I have been wondering about a lot of stuff in relation to this though, like if I give someone a ball of clay but I own the ball of clay, and they turn it into a spiked ball of clay, does it become their work of art because they turned it into a spiked version? Because no one on the forums here can contend that Oblivion's Mountain Lions and Waalx's Sabertooth tigers for example, are the same thing.
But they came from the same source, so who reserves the right to distribute it? It's all very funky.
In any case though, I'll see what I can do since the Lynx is pretty unique. I'll probably be selective in what I port in relation to animals, since it does take quite a bit of time and I still want to pick animals that make sense according to the region (I do a lot of research about these things before I implement them).
As a side note, I have gotten something interesting working.
I rigged and remodeled the Skeleton to fit the Human body, so skeletons can do all the things that humans can do: http://i.imgur.com/EXsgL.jpg
Since Bethesda has some Skeletons that spawn in the game as dead bodies or as treasure chests, I had an idea to give randomized clothes/armor to this "skeleton", when they spawn for an immersive effect.
It needs some testing though, but I want to test it as a proof of concept at least.
If you guys are interested in testing let me know, since I have no idea if it will really work or if it will crash people's games
