If EA are really smart, they'll implement RNG with a freemium system.

That's kinda what they did with ME3.  You could spend money for Bioware points, to purchase packs to unlock content faster.  The trick is, with the packs, the contained goods are randomised and so there is no guarantee that, for example, you will get a black-listed weapon if you open half a dozen arsenal packs (as I've found from experience).

The only difference is that with ME3, none of the content was available to paid subscribers only.  If you had the patience and the skills to pay the bills, you could afford to unlock everything for free (minus the 900 hour average it has taken to do so thus far).

No.  Well, I have, but that's besides the point.  People wont eat garlic if they're out on a date, for example.

Israel's getting creepy:

Yossi* wants to make it very clear from the beginning of our discussion that I cannot use his real name. Rotem, his friend who is also translating, explains, “He is afraid. We’re all afraid. The fascists are searching for our Facebook profiles, for any information about us on the internet. They are hunting us.”

We may criticize the army and the defense establishment, but only from one direction: Why didn’t they let the army win? Let it “do its job,” beat the hell out of them, bombard them, crush them even more, conquer even more, cut off the electricity, tighten the siege and ramp up the killing, pain and devastation as much as possible; to exalt the might of the troops, to praise the daring of the pilots. To bring the Arabs back to the Stone Age and Gaza to the Middle Ages. That is allowed. The most moral thing on earth — as much as possible; doubting it is forbidden. One may also cry victim without limit. Ignorance will be crowned as a national goal.

It's a convoy, so it's not unusual.  Blow the lead and the rear guard, shoot anyone still standing and release the prisoners.

Also, ISIS.  Or an affiliated group.  ISIS have done a number of jailbreaks over the last year, including launching a successful attack on Abu Ghraib.  It's their style, and within their means.

Faroese salmon.  It's meant to taste as good as wild Atlantic salmon.  And while a garlic scape gazpacho does sound appealing, I know quite a few people tend to be put off by anything with the word garlic in it.  Because they are culinary cowards, but still.

Skyrim mods interact strangely at the best of times.  I know a modder who was working on something to do with Fort Dawnguard, and his edits ended up affecting things in Whiterun and Falkreath.  How? 



It also may not be mod related.  Are you using the alpha build 1.7 for SKSE?  If not, you may need to investigate how to allocate more V-RAM to Skyrim, as the update for Skyrim 1.9 basically borked how memory is allocated towards the game.  If it exceeds a certain limit....you crash to desktop.  1.7 has this functionality built in, so it's not a problem.

BOSS and LOOT are programs which, when run, will tell you what order to put your mods in, what dependencies those mods have (and if they are present or not) and whether those mods have "dirty edits" which require cleaning.  TES5Edit is a program which allows you to clean the mods.  Neither BOSS or LOOT is perfect, but they are frequently very helpful.

Also, I echo your feelings about Hunterborn.  It is a great mod.  It's even better when combined with RND and Frostfall, and either played with the SkyRe overhaul (which has a new perk tree - Wayfarer - which deals with survivalism and is awesome) or with Requiem, as the mod author recommends.

The only problem with Hunterborn is that it's not entirely compatible with some other major hunting overhaul mods.  Notably, it has problems with SkyTEST when it comes to looting...as I recall, it's not a CTD level problem, but more to do with the kind of loot you get.  That info is contained in the compatability information though (the author is very good at that), so it's easy enough to find.  The other problem is that it can be, at times, rather script intensive, which can slow down your system.  This is a notable issue when it is combined with Frostfall.

Hmmm, now I think about it...does ACE Archery, Melee and Realistic Fighting play nice with Hunterborn?  Probably not, I've not seen anything about a compatability patch or anything.  Even if you're not using Scrimshaw arrows and weapons, they may not be recognised by the ACE system, and so could be fouling things up.  Just a possibility, but one to keep in mind.  If that is the case, I suggest perhaps using SkyRe as a combat overhaul - it's just as valid, and probably a little more coherent overall, and you know for sure that it has SkyRe compatability.

Also, Junk: try OBIS: Organized Banditry in Skyrim.  Some of the gangs are kinda...uh, quirky, but they're all way more legit as fighters than normal bandits, even when RotE/Duel/ACE/HLE improved.

8
Also double check that none of these mods require assets from the DLCs, as many of them do.

I don't see any obvious conflicts...that I know of, anyway.  Did you sort the load order with BOSS or LOOT and clean all the plugins with TES5Edit?

Hooligianism among UK Premier teams isn't so bad nowadays.  Practically nonexistant, really.

It's worth noting that the Donetsk People's Republic is strongly influenced by Moscow.  "Strelkov", the leader of the militia, is FSB (current/former up for debate).  Russia doesn't want an incident with America over this.  How many arms did Russia twist or break?  Probably a few, but it's what they're good at.  Maybe Borodai will get asylum once Kyiv crushes the insurgency, in return for his compliance.

It is also possible that Ukraine did down the plane.  I mean, Ukraine lied about having its own anti-aircraft weapons in the area after that, despite the strong evidence of them in Slaviyansk (presumably to deter a Russian air force attack in aid of the rebels).

Sorry, Suu and Cainad.

Mostly because I only put perks in Pickpocket to get the +100 carry weight and poison options.

I tend to RP my characters to an extent as well, like a former Imperial Soldier who always keeps a set of Legion armour and weapons on them or similar...but not quite to Paes', uh, depth.
