    Nope, still much more restricted.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find settings for X and Y sensivity? Which ini and how do they look like?

    Also, how are you supposed to rotate objects in the inventory, and what are those "reserved" numpad keys supposed to even do?

    fMouseHeadingXScale=0.0200

    But even if I change those, it still feels oddly slow unless my fps is really high (which may or may not happen in some interiors, as I seem to get fps drops in some of them, similar to New Vegas, but then I'm playing on a couple year old laptop and have no complaints about the performance otherwise).

    You have to make the vertical scale lower, because the speeds are not equal with equal values.

    Maybe this time I'll figure out how to get Loghain and kick Alistair's ass to the curb.

    Oh, wait....

    In previous installments you would only get an additional bonus on top of it according to your "class" anyway.
    So the end result is slightly less differences between starting characters.

    But yeah, RPG would be stretching it. Then again that has probably been true since Morrowind and definitely since Oblivion.

    The consoles aren't even an excuse for this. Oblivion's UI was a console UI. This is... there just aren't words.

    UI aside, it's not like anything in Skyrim is worse than Daggerfall or Morrowind. :smug:

    Lack of attributes, obligatory JoAT, lack of stat based failure, derpy health regen, lack of guild requirements, less skills, worse enchant, no spellmaker?

    That's some major decline.

    I don't think it will be nearly as bad as oblivious, maybe even decent, but it's pretty much guaranteed to be worse than TES 2 & 3.

    Have now played a bit more of the Thiefs Guild quests. Not that bad.
    What's not directly apparent is that it is split in "main" and "side" quests.
    I would have liked to see more c&c in the MQ and I'm not all happy about the Nocturnal stuff, but the first half is quite nice, imho.
    The side quests at first consist almost completely of RadiantStory quests of the type: Steal x gold, steal item y, etc. If you do enough of them however, you get "real" quests for each city to improve the position of the guild in those cities and as a reward the HQ improves a bit as well. Nice touch.

    The Companions have those as well, which I liked. Then they bugged, stopped updating and I could never finish the second tier and do the good ones, which I didn't.

    I like the College of Winterhold. Main story is so-so, but the quests to get the Master spells are pretty cool. And there's some interesting off-beat stuff to do in the Midden, like summoning the Pirate King of the Abecean.

    Also, there's a quest researching the Disappearance of the Dwemer that nets you Keening, yeeeeaaahhh.-

    yeah on that note why the fuck can you wield Keening? The game even draws attention to the fact that you shouldn't be able to

    Heart got nuked, gives you a mortal wound when you first equip it, couldn't be bothered modelling wraithguard and sunder for a fanservice quest?

    Except this "additional bonus" would in most circumstances vastly exceed your racial ones.

    "Slightly"?

    It removes any differences but racial ones.
    How is it slightly?

    Oblivion was a turd game and turd RPG.

    Morrowind wasn't less of an RPG than Daggerfall.

    Also note that Wraithguard was one gauntlet, which would be a bit of a problem with gauntlets no longer being separate. I imagine that no one would want the headache of figuring out what to do in that case, considering that they'd be guaranteed to piss someone off no matter what they did (not that that seems to be a concern).

    Of course, not having Keening at all in the game would have been most sensible, but... nothing to be done for that now.

    And the most suitable thing of all would be to make each gauntlet a seperate item and to allow pauldrons, greaves, belts and whatever else that was in Morrowind. Would've given the treasure hunting aspect more appeal and allowed for more customization.
