The desktop background is from an old save in Skyrim.
My character decided to go for a "swim" with her pet Snowy Sabrecat, Jango.Technically
, my char should be riding Jango like a horse.
But apparently there's something glitchy when entering deep water; Jango acted as if I was still riding him, but my char acted as if I wasn't...in the water, she performed the regular swimming animations, and started walking/running on dry land. While still on top of Jango
! (Dismounting and remounting seems to fix the glitch.)
I don't remember if this glitch happens with horses or not, but this image was just too good to pass up.
(Edit: The glitch does not seem to occur with horses; they merely move extremely slowly once I enter deep water.)
I forgot to do something about the compass before taking the screenshot...and I don't want to crop it out.
Maybe I'll re-upload later, if I ever manage a similar screenshot.
Or maybe I'll just leave the compass in to show off how quest-obsessed I am.
Anyway, all the other stuff is the Skyrim Rainmeter skin, created by ~Axerron
You can find this version of the skin at [link]
and Rainmeter is at [link]
I'm busy trying to figure out the coding so I can add more apps to that menu. Ideas?
And for anybody interested in modding Skyrim, here's where I got Jango from:[link]
Or if you use Steam, you should be able to just search for the name, and subscribe and download straight from there.
Somewhat off-topic, but since Skyrim is distracting me from my other writing, I do
have a character background I'm working on.
I haven't made up my mind whether I'll continue it once the game's storyline officially starts, but if I do continue it, I expect to include the character's experiences with mods like Jango.
