Right on! I think that's a cool addition. I don't usually think of linking Daggerfall's style to TES 3-5, but this harmonizing is something I think looks good.

On an unrelated matter, I'm wondering what the parameters for this mod are, since I don't notice when it executes. I put a screenshot of my settings here. When is it supposed to execute?

Thank you Jay_H :)

By default the loading screen is shown only when loading a save but if you check Buildings you also get it when entering/exiting a building. The same is true for Dungeon option.

Unfortunately the current version is not compatible with the fighters build, i'll release an update in the next days.

Do you overlay text strings on the images, or are they part of the image? I could contribute more text strings if you need them, but if they're part of the image that's beyond what I'm good at.

Look in your mods/LoadingScreen/Tips folder, there is a file called en.ini which is a simple text file with all strings. Adding new texts should be pretty easy, as well as creating a translation file.

If you're interested in writing more tips I would gratefully accept you contribution :)

Re: [MOD] Loading Screen

I decided to take some inspiration from how Oblivion and Skyrim do their loading screens, including some details about major figures in Daggerfall's story. If that's not what you're looking for, feel free to exclude them :)

[Internal]

[Generic]

;Fighters Guilds, Mages Guilds, and Knightly Orders offer adventure for reward.
;Some tavern and shop owners will offer you quests of their own.
;Some nobles will offer you quests unrelated to the Emperor's mission.
;Some say the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild operate in this region.
;Commit too many crimes and your very presence will be outlawed in civilized areas.
;Are you hated in one region? Move to another and start over.
;A guild member in one region is a member in them all.
;More valuable equipment will appear as you gain levels.
;Guilds will accept you into higher ranks as you increase your skills and do more quests.
;Banks offer ships, houses, and loans.
;Some very few people have found witch covens. The quests and summonings they offer are serious matters.

[Exterior]

;Have you found the dungeon in Cybiades?
;The Emperor has lost a letter of extraordinary value. Its contents could change Tamriel's destiny.
;Gothryd, the young son of Lysandus, holds no love for the Empire.
;Camaron was the late king of Sentinel. He was slain in a duel with Gothryd.
;Aubk-i was married to Gothryd to ensure peace between Daggerfall and Sentinel.
;Eadwyre is the oldest monarch of the three powers of the Iliac Bay.
;Lysandus was slain during the War of Betony under a mysterious fog.
;Nulfaga exiled herself to her castle Shedungent in the Wrothgarian Mountains.
;Barenziah, Morgiah, and Helseth are Dark Elves by birth.
;Some people dedicate themselves to hunting werewolves.
;Lycanthropy and vampirism are communicable diseases.
;Vary things by trying a shopkeeper quest or visiting a distant graveyard or shrine.
;Some priests build shrines in the wilderness. They do not believe in the deities of the Empire.

[Dungeon]

;Never let your stamina run out in a hostile area.
;Listen carefully within a dungeon to avoid serious threats.
;Establish a safe area in the dungeon and rest there when needed.
;Humans are the only silent enemies.
;Use magical items instead of spells to preserve your magicka.
;Some enemies cannot be hurt by weaker materials of weapons.
;Hand-to-Hand combat can harm any enemy.
;Certain enemies will cast Shalidor's Mirror to reflect spells.
;Some kinds of spells such as Shield and Regenerate can ease the rigor of combat.
;Increase your Swimming skill to hold your breath longer underwater.
;Some spell effects make dungeon crawling much easier. Try Levitate, Water Walking, and Recall.
;Spriggans carry alchemy ingredients.
;Imps sometimes possess magical items.
;Some enemies, such as animals, never leave treasure.
;Strength alters carrying capacity, fatigue, and attack damage.
;Intelligence determines maximum magicka capacity.
;Endurance affects health regained per hour during rest and maximum health gained per level.
