This might sound like a rant, but I called this from a mile away. Integrating their product with Steam wasn't a terrible decision for Bethesda as it would not only allow them to gain more sales for their product, but valve paid them some nice money to make it so their product would run solely on steam thus, they people would be forced to download steam in order to play. However I've grown up with steam and I've been using steam and playing games by valve for 8 years now and recently I've come to realize they have a ton of money, and use none of it running their company properly. If valve is doing something that will make them money, they do it swiftly! No matter how stupid the decision they are making is, and how bad the community will HATE it. I said this might sound like a rant, but it is at this point. For those of you who are wondering where the kit is. They keep changing their story and I'm guessing it's due to valve being lazy. They are going to have to integrate to the expectations of Bethesda, and there's nothing Bethesda can do because Valve has complete control of what they want, and they are the only ones with the tools to make the kit how Bethesda wants it. So around the time they said that it was "right around the corner" my friend who is anxious to play my mods asked me when I though they would release the kit. I gave a random guess of February 8th, I'm still holding to it. If you guys have any comments or questions about this post I'd be happy to hear them as It's now January 31st which to my knowledge is "The End of the Month" and the kit isn't out, but HEY! I'll remain hopeful who knows it could be released at 11:59 P.M. or maybe they'll get creative and release it at 11:11. However deep down I'm pretty confident were going to be left waiting... again.

It's the 1st of February where I am. And honestly, I doubt we'll be getting it soon. I was hoping I'd be able to get in a mod or two before school started again, but seeing as that is tomorrow, that is NOT going to happen. So, to that I say, screw you Valve, assuming they are responsible for the endless delays.
Because of these delays, I'll probably have to delay my mod updates and extra mods for over a month, maybe two. =/
"Valve time" jokes are pretty common, I have to admit. ;p
I'm sorry to hear that your modding endeavours are going to end up delayed. :( Truly, I don't believe anyone really expected it to be so late after the release of the actual game itself. But I do wish they would have been slightly more clear regarding date, especially considering all they'd say was "January". Some of the community response might have been quelled a bit if they've have put expectations towards the end of January/early February from the start.
I completely agree Wishfire... The new video on the front page is amazing, and It looks like this is going to give us so much power over the game. This could literally be the beginning of people turning Skyrim into completely new games. The only reason this pissed me off is!!! I'm excited again, and I have to wait once again. : ( well, maybe it'll be out soon who knows! Keep our fingers crossed.
Well, if it comes out in the next week, I may be able to pump out a mod or two before school and stress become too much of an issue. I still think that there will be many things that they could have added in, such as the idea mentioned by me in this post. However, as a whole, I think the CK will be more than satisfying. Just hope there are a lot less crashing issues.
I hate double posting but....
The CK has been announced to be released on Tuesday, along with a "special surprise".
The surprise hasn't been confirmed, but Console Modding was apparently shot down on Twitter.
If anyone has more information, please share. I'm just leeching off what I have read from other people on modding sites.
EDIT: In other news, Wednesday for me (which is likely when it will be released, as it will be Tuesday in America) is the 8th. So.... LOL.
Triple Posting >.<
-edits last two posts together-
I think the "special surprise" that is going to come with the CK is an official HD texture pack.
edit: Ok, I can't delete my own posts? Blargh. Sorry for the post spamming.
The fact that it's coming out on the 8th made my day! I must be the king of guessing... that or a Bethesda insider... O_O

... I'm on to you >.> lol.
At least we finally have a set date! Well... assuming they actually stick to it this time.
yeah that is lame the CK not out yet, i was going to wait for it to make some mods.
I HATE HATE HATE steam
i remember so long ago now, i was young... buying a graphics card because it came with free halflife 2, free you need to download it, and i had dialup.
i actually DID wait for it to download, but then i needed to download patches.... and i never did play the game til recently.
steam sucks lol
i hate that steam has anything to do with elder scrolls, its a shame,
I agree. Never liked steam.
The CK is out now, and guess when it came out.
Wednesday the 8th (GMT+12).
