    BOOK COVERS SKYRIM - LOST LIBRARY SUPPORT CLOSED : October 2016

    After four years of playing Skyrim and over two and a half years of developing and supporting Book Covers Skyrim I am moving on from Skyrim and stopping support and maintenance of the Book Covers Skyrim and Book Covers Skyrim - Lost Library mods. I have removed my modded Skyrim install from my SSD and cleared the space for new games.

    I have had great fun creating the covers and supporting players using them but I feel that the mod is now complete. Apart from known issues with triple-monitor Widescreen play, I believe the mod to be error-free and stable.

    I will update the Nexus permissions to allow ANY and ALL use and modifications to Book Covers Skyrim and its assets with the single proviso that you credit me and link back here. There are stocks used in this mod that require accreditation so please respect this. If you want to take the raw PSD files of the mod and make your own covers, feel free to do so. They are in the Misc Files section of the mod.

    Thanks for the company and have fun!

    Daniel.

    I am very happy to report that nvnvshuang has created a CHINESE language translation for almost the entire Book Covers Skyrim - Lost Library mod.

    This optional ESP represents several months of meticulous translation work and was especially difficult because many of the books in the Lost Library come from older TES games which were never made available in Chinese. Only a few of the Michael Kirkbride books are left untranslated in English because, let's be honest, Michael was somewhat on the strange side!

    To use the Chinese translation, just download the Lost Library as usual and then overwrite the ESP with the one in the Optional Chinese Language download. This new ESP only affects the written words inside the books, not the textures themselves.

    I have not had an opportunity to test the ESP as I no longer have a working Skyrim install but if you come across any issues, I am sure that both I and nvnvshuang will be able to assist.

    Enjoy!

    I am a bit skeptical about the books that have been manually added to random places in skyrim. sounds like a total compatibility nightmare. Is there any info on what cells this affects?

    Author I noticed an error in your Description at least I think so... This is NOT fully compatible with Requiem. Either way I organice Requiem esp or Book covers esp they leave some books out of the list (At least thats what I see in TES5Edit (Leveled item and there book lists they exclude some books))

    But it is better to put Book covers lost library below Requiem and then make a small patch to fix the error so it is not a big deal but they are not compatible out of the box.

    Now I am not an expert in this modding thing but if I understand this right what I see then this is how it is (but I am starting to understand these things I think....)


    Sry If I am wrong....

      Are you talking about Book Covers Skyrim or the BCS Lost Library? Only the ordinary Book Covers Skyrim should have any effect on Requiem.

      Updating a Bashed Patch should deal with levelled list issues between the mods..

      I was talking about Lost Library. It says on the description that Requiem user don't need any additional patches so I assumed that I won't need a Bashed Patch...

      The Only issue really was updating the levelled lists

      The problem with me is that I don't want to make bashed patch cause I use Requiem
      But I think I fixed the problem with my own patch


      Just got confused when there was that Requiem users don't need patches.

    Does this include books from ESO?

    Also, is this mod still being updated?

      There's now a another book mod which adds almost all books from ESO. It's called ESO books and I think it is even being updated as they come more

    So I read the uninstallation and says you can uninstall with MO. Right click and delete from modlist is fine then?

      And redo your Bashed Patch if you have one. All books added by this mod will vanish then.

      @DanielCoffey
      You mentioned level lists in the description and to use Wrye bash to update the Bashed patch.

      Do you use TES5edit / or some other tool to add the devel/relev bash tags to the mod?
      Because Lost Library 1.7 is not automatically included in the leveled lists section when rebuilding that bashed patch.

      Also is it correct to add both devel/relev (or only one of them)

    CHINESE LANGUAGE UPDATE - AUGUST 2016

    After a huge amount of creative effort, nvnvshuang has updated the Chinese Language Alternate ESP file to cover many more of the Lost Library books, including almost all of the Michael Kirkbride titles. The Alternate ESP is only needed if you are playing the game with Chinese Language mods.

    Fozar has created a Russian Language version of the mod, including Russian textures for the covers themselves. It is a full replacement for this mod and is on the Nexus.
