So easy you could do it at home

I had a couple people ask where to find the tools I’m using for the Arena Depixelization Project. So here are the links… Arena Modding Suite by Hallfiry and Arena Toolkit by Dysperia – Martin

Cork on a fork

This is Jiub. Jiub is the first person you see in Morrowind. He also has a fairly unique head so it was fitting to use him as my first experiment. Easy to test. This Jiub, being my first attempt, is a little crude compared… Continue Reading “Cork on a fork”

Tablet 2.0

Upgrade Over a month ago, the pen for my trusty Wacom Bamboo tablet (see first post ever) broke. This was quite disheartening as I love having an art tablet and it was hard to be motivated without it. After much research and reflection, I… Continue Reading “Tablet 2.0”

Rolling a critical failure

Windows to the soul Recently while playing around with “vanilla” (unaltered) Arena, I noticed that the windows turn on an off for day and night. I believe this is based on the window color being pure white. In quite a few of the SET… Continue Reading “Rolling a critical failure”

Doors and Floors

In this mod, I fixed three slides from the intro when you select new game. 3-Card monte I had… Continue Reading “Overdue request but the Mailman is IN”

Picking back up the brush

Who’s down with ADP…yeah you know me After a substantial hiatus for real life, I’m back. My schedule has a lot more free time in it now and I should be able to make substantial progress on the Arena mod in the next few… Continue Reading “Picking back up the brush”

Wake up! You were dreaming.

Early on Back about 4 1/2 years ago, I had just gotten into computer graphic design. I spent the first 1/2 a year experimenting and learning how to use the editing software (GIMP). One of the games I messed with was Morrowind, my favorite game. It… Continue Reading “Wake up! You were dreaming.”
