    Hey guys, it has been quite long since I commented here.

    I've been quite busy in real life, working nearly 60-65 hours while maintaining complicated social life. It is hard to say I will be supporting any of my Fallout 3/NV/TES5 mods. If you are hoping for updates on any of my public mods, it is unlikely to happen...not anytime soon.

    As for ARM quest, people having asking for update or sequel....both of them were at work till end of 2013. I was working on overhaulling the interior cells of the Mythic Dawn and quest structures to provide alternative ways to progress to the last mission, in the middle, my desktop (Intel D800 with HD 4800...yup all my mods were built from this ancient PC) finally died. This is where my mod making session kinda stopped. Later that year I build a new PC but I couldn't really be motivated to work any further.

    Simultaneously, I was designing a sequel to this mod. I've seen people saying Helanu would have been a companion after the end of ARM...truth to tell you, depending on the choice made in this mod, she was supposed to come back as one of essential NPCs in the sequel. After seeing all the people writing ungrateful and negative reviews, I kinda lost the spirit to work any further on this mod. In the late 2012 and earlier 2013, I was working 12-17 hours a day everyday for this mod, I even literally coughed out blood onto the screen while working on this mod. I am aware that my mods contain bugs,glitches, plotholes and etc, but it was my joy being able to share my imagination with so many people in the community.

    Since I am here, I might as well answer some questions people posted below:

    1) "My journal will not activate!!"
    -> I think I figured out why people have this problems and I never had this problem while testing out this mod in 2013. Journal has a script attached that is waiting for player to complete certain part of quest stages in certain order. And each stage can be completed while moving into the invisible trigger boxes located throughout the mod. I've seen some youtubers playing this mod with TCL console command on...if you use these cheat codes, it disables all the trigger boxes in the level, thus, even after you progress the mod, the journal object will still be on "waiting-mode" for player to progress the already-completed-quest-stages.

    2) "I cannot pick up xarxes! also infinite number of enemies spawn in that area!"
    -> Xarxes can only be picked up by the female NPC companion. Also, infinite enemy spawn is intentional. Player was supposed to escape while everyone else was fighting. The design flaw in this mission was that I expected players to follow the NPC to initiate the Xarxes grabbing scene. If friendly NPCs engage in combat and does not withdraw, the quest will be halted.

    3) "The Mythic Dawn guy is not moving once I escaped from the cave."
    -> The AI marker is placed in the exterior cells. If you have other mods that occupy that region, or used TES5Edit to "clean" (seriously, it is not dirty, it is harmless), it will be deleted along with it. Thus your companion will not lead you to the Mythic Dawn hideout.

    4) "Going back and forth to the Inn? this is stupid!"
    -> I know. The reason why I used that Inn as main source of player-Nirtiuss communication was to minimize the possible conflict with other mods. I could use 10 other interior cells but that would already put more burden on compatibility issues which this mod already has few.

    5) Mythic Dawn hideout is too big to navigate.
    -> This is my fault. I made it big and made each cell interconnected with every other cells. Apparently, this is not what everyone wanted. I apologize. The unreleased update contained about 25% of overhaul which recreated the main hall and the dormitory. At this point, it will be as it is.

    Lastly, super thanks to all the donors who supported this mod beyond simply clicking endorsement. I've been struggling financially in last couple months and this has been a great help. I truly appreciate it and if I ever come back to create more quest based mods, these donors will likely show up as badass NPCs and anti-heroes.

      Heya Dree. I made a personal patch for ARM and ETaC, do you mind if I share it? It just moves the Hall to just outside the city wall added by ETaC.

      You can release anything you want with ARM. Anyone can release anything with ARM or any of my mods as long as you provide me in the credit.

      Thank you kindly. Let me just make some tweaks for public consumption and I'll throw it up for the masses. Right now it's a fairly sloppy edit since I just wanted it for myself.

      I don't play with any cheats, and I still cannot activate the journal by the end of the Covert Action part 1, despite the fact that all the point in the quest journal have been fulfilled. I have checked the CK to see what are the conditions to make the
      journal work and they all have been fulfilled, so I had to manually move to quest to stage 40.

      Great mod, but I can feel it is crawling with bugs, smaller or greater. It desperately begs for a bugfix or redone version, though I fully understand how difficult it might be.

      So im on the quest right after you exit the paradise and i spoke to Gaban, but he won't start rigging the explosives. He just stands there. Also im stuck and cant jump or move and cant access my inventory. I tried waiting a bit and using the enableplayercontrols command but Gaban offers no dialogue.

      For anyone interested, I uploaded a tweak that moves the Shrine of Stendarr to the outside of Winterhold, to make it compatible with ETaC, JKs etc. (I also added some clutter and Stendarr statues.) http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/69832/?

      Yes, we need the quest id to use the setstage command. "Mission 2" (kill the silver smith) will not start!


      ** update **
      Using setstage or completequest dreearmquestmq02 or dreearmquestmq03 ( the Nirtius note "Mission #2" is supposed to start '03' ) does NOT work. That will 'finish' the quest in question, but the next quest STILL will not start. I tried this with dreearmquestmq04 as well. Again, that quest will complete, but the next quest (05) will NOT start. I am not using TCL, and am using very few mods (including Born and Dawn). Does A.R.M. need Hearthfire?

      Does anyone have a known working fix for this?
      If so, PLEASE let me know here (spell it out in detail).

      At present, A.R.M. just will not progress.

      Dree, assuming you come back sometime to see this question, just know that many will be curious about the same thing.

      Will you be updating this mod for the 64-bit Skyrim Special Edition? I think it comes out two days from this post.

      Those having a problem with activating the journal after the covert action mission, which is after you kill the smith, you can try using console setstage dreearmquestmq03 40. It worked for me.

      I am also stuck with Gaban, who is supposed to be working on rigging the fuel depository but instead he's just standing there and I can't do anything (it won't let you access maps, inventory or move). I can find lot of other people with the same issue but I can't find any answers at all on it. :(

      How do I fix the bug on the third quest where you go into the prison. When I say that I'm ready it loads and goes straight into a black screen rather than continuing the quest.

    I'm really enjoying the mod but when Salms is going to the Mythic Dawn hideout he's just circling Helgen and Lakeview. Getting pretty chilly since I'm using Frostfall. Where is the damn hideout?

      It's a distance away from Rorikstead, I suggest waiting and just meeting him at the hideout.

    I'm not done with the mod yet(up to mission #3) and I honestly love how it blends in with Skyrim, It feels like a questline that belongs in the game, only downside is that I feel naked without my things, my overpowered arrows, my pets,etc.
    I don't recommend using the Dragonsmount home with this mod as the Mythic Dawn Hideout entrance is in the exact same spot the castle is, I just use tcl to go through, nothing major just something to take note of, other than that I'm enjoying the mod.

    Edit/Update: Finished the mod, This overall is a really fun mod, I enjoyed the aspect of going undercover, I also got attached to Salms but alas, It could never be. only complaint is the same one everyone else had, the Hideout was too large to navigate and I ended up using tcl the entire time, to add to that the final quest where you have been outed results in everyone coming to attack, this resulted in me having to use killall multiple times, the same with when I had to go back to the prison, there was too many enemies for such a small space, HOWEVER, the rewards for the quests are definitely worth it. I like that you gave us a werewolf follower, they're underutilized.

    tldr: Great mod but the hideout is too large, the prison when on fire is cluttered with atronachs and daedra, the hideout during the final quest is too cluttered with mythic dawn npcs to be able to navigate the narrow tunnels.

    In this feedback-section there are much more negative comments than this mod deserves. Sure, it is not perfect. But the positive aspects do stand out, imho.

    1) It is a quest mod with a nice combination of new areas and reasons to visit familiar places all over skyrim.

    2) It is LONG! It's not something that you complete in 1 afternoon. Additionally, it is paced nicely, so that you can do stuff in the meantime while waiting for the next mission etc.

    3) There is a lot of variation in the missions. Fetch things, kill enemies, observe people, intrigue, a trial, pick locks secretly, optional sidepaths ...

    4) It is highly immersive! One really feels like an undercover.agent on a secret mission.

    5) Superb voiceacting (could sometimes be a bit louder) and believable NPCs.

    I didn't mind the labyrinth of the hideout, I used the clairvoyance-spell most of the time.

    All in all an excellent mod. Enjoyed, endorsed, and highly recommended!

    I don't think I've EVER been as angry with a quest as I am now with Under the moonlight... WHO THE HELL THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? Having four of the most hated guys on the world march throughout the whole EFFING MAP while being constantly attacked by just about every animal or person they come upon, giving ME a "Quest failed". . . I've been doing this for about two hours total, using slow time spell, TFC and KILL console commands, to clear their way like a bloody babysiter, and yet every minute or so, some f*cker runs up to them and fails the quest, while I'm being hidden 50ft away... I feel like playing Dark Souls to cool off for a bit

    Mod is great, but Mythic Dawn hideout is too big to navigate, that's only con, but if u are like me, u can always use TCL cheat, to skip navigating and enjoy all quests, which are good.
