Patch 1.4 and... Where's the creation kit?

Listeners, readers, followers, disciples and guy who googled 'chronic diarrhea' only to come upon this place and be shocked in how often I use that term regarding a video game - rejoice! For I bring news!

Patch 1.4 is now live on Steam (Sorry console users, you'll have to wait a little while longer) and we couldn't be happier! To celebrate, I've taken the time to mention what I think are the most important points to this update! After all, everyone loves my opinion - those that don't? Well, I make them an offer they can't refuse. (think Don Vito.)

  • General optimizations for memory and performance
  • Fixed crash in “Haemar’s Shame” if player had already completed “A Daedra’s Best Friend”
  • Fixed issue where quests would incorrectly progress after reloading a save
  • Fixed issue where the player house in Windhelm would not clean up properly
  • Fixed issue where weapon racks and plaques would not work correctly in player’s house if player immediately visits their house before purchasing any upgrades
  • Fixed crash related to giant attacks and absorb spells (McBraas NOTE* I seriously don't hope they're referring to the way things that dies by the clubs of giants are launched into the air, 'cause that ROCKS!)
  • "The White Phial” will now start properly if player already has a briar heart in their inventory
  • Fixed issue where player would be unable to become Thane of Riften if they purchased a home first 
  • Clearing Knifepoint Ridge before starting “Boethiah’s Champion” no longer prevents quest from starting.

Personal favorites, right there!
That aside, I'm sure that everyone's eagerly (and impatiently) awaiting the creation kit, which we were told we'd have by mid-January. I urge you not to fill with anger due to the lateness, since it is a delicate task and well... They did provide us with Skyrim, so we kind of love Bethesda and want to forgive them for sleeping with our mothers. Oh, and not having the creation kit out yet!

It actually seems that they are right about done, but given my work on VEC I know that that means they aren't sure about when it'll be out and their schedule may fuck up! That said, I believe it will be out soon and I will personally begin my own, major questline - if it works out, I'll post updates on it here, as well as other cool stuff.
