Show off your EVERYTHING


My latest Skyrim mod is up. Introducing QuickDrop! It lets you bind hotkeys to quickly keep or drop the last few items you picked up without ever having to open your inventory.

Were you trying to pick up a soulgem, but you accidentally picked up a piece of random dungeon clutter, instead? Rather than wasting time dicking around in your inventory trying to find it and drop it, tap the hotkey to spit it right back up!






I don’t play Skyrim any more, but wouldn’t it be great if you (or someone else) created a mod so that stuff that the player will never want or need cannot be picked up? For example, instead of dropping unwanted items after picking them up (eg: a bowl), the player could add ‘bowl’ to their own, custom-created black list of items, and then all bowls would be ‘unpickupable’.

Is that even possible?


I think an easier thing to do would be similar to what happens on Google Earth when you pick something that has a lot of stuff in that area. You click on the area and a selection wheel pops up showing everything that can be picked up in that area. Then you can pick and choose.

Something like this:

(Note: I don’t know what the items are called, because I don’t play Skyrim and I don’t even know if the pic is from Skyrim, so I just guessed. You get the idea, though.)


That’s Morrowind.


It’s a good idea though.


Meh, whatever. You get the idea.


An item blacklist is possible, but I’m not sure how well it would actually work. There’s a Papyrus OnCrosshairRefChanged event from SKSE that grabs the reference the player is focused on. You could then look up the reference against a blacklist and block activation on it if it’s there, which should stop it being picked up.

But Papyrus is so slow that if you looked at a bunch of items in quick succession, it might not be able to keep up.

I’m going to be experimenting with something similar for the next version of QuickDrop, using OnCrosshairRefChanged to see if I can record the position of objects in the world and then place them back at that position when they’re dropped. If it works out, I think a blacklisting mod would be a terrific idea.


I recorded a kind of post-rockish guitar improv, if someone is into that.


To be honest, I didn’t know what “post-rockish guitar improv” meant but I thought it was going to be a lot of noise in the guise of “music”.

Then I listened to it. It’s breathtaking! Great work, acade365!


Thanks, Daniel! I’m glad you liked it.

It’s actually the first third of a longer ‘song’ (if you may call it that), but I felt that posting a 19 minute behemoth right off the bat would be a a bit intimidating. Anyway,here it is if somebody actually wants to hear it.

That’s not bad at all. I could easily listen to this for hours on end, great work Acade.


Shoulda posted this a long time ago, but whatever.

It’s something I did for college, believe it or not.




Post rock is kind of cool if you can find bands that do it well. From what I’ve seen it’s generally defined as music made with rock instruments that isn’t rock music or something like that. Generally instrumental. Honestly though I haven’t found many post rock groups I like all that much.


A little terrified over here.


I made some doors. :slight_smile:


Godspeed You! Black Emperor is an incredible Post-Rock Band, maybe the best. Yanqui U.X.O is their best Album, i think. never experienced a band before that can bring you into such a apocalyptic yet almost devine mood just with their acoustic built-ups.
Do Make Say Think is another good band, though I don’t know a lot of them. I say them live once in a small club and it was a great show, great improvisations. But I reckon if you’re interested better start off with GY!BE.
