                Humans have deeper psychological connections to dogs due to being together for far longer(around 30k+ years for dogs compared to 10k years for cats). So it's far easier to anthropomorphize dogs and canids, and thus it's easier to have the specific wires cross within the brain to cause fertilization.

                Cats are still quite social. If you ever owned one they rarely leave you completely alone, they at least want to be in the same room as you or other cats.
                They do have very low social intelligence however, they oftentimes take extreme amounts of time to adjust to new places or things and treat everything in their cat body language, their instincts also completely override their behavior much more often than dogs

              There's a source which says that Tiber Septim was trained in swordplay by a Pig. It doesn't elaborate from there but most people assume it means he had an Orc mentor which is ironic considering his regime would exclude Orcs from citizenship and he publically considered them to be subhuman.

                You are the one focusing on surface level shit, moron.
                Even completely disregarding jungles, Oblivion Cyrodiil is generic, it's a whimsical fantasy landscape devoid of any culture. No Colovia-Nibenay cultural divide (and thus no imperial culture in general), no thousands of cults, even the Roman aesthetic got reduced to a skirt on plate mail, while the asian aspects of the Imperials were confined exclusively to the Blades. Oblivion's only good lore contributions, MK's guest writer stuff, all make sure to ignore what Cyrodiil actually looks like in-game (the Song of Pelinal still mentions jungles in Cyrodiil, the Remanada still pretends that Colovia and Nibenay are different), so you can't use that as proof that Oblivion is akshually not generic. Sure, Cyrodiil was never bug volcano land levels of weird, but it sure as hell wasn't on Oblivion's level of boring either.

                As for Skyrim, while not as bad as Oblivon, still did plenty of wrongs. The Nords are now just racist blonde Imperials instead of shamanistic weather-worshipping barbarians, the greybearss are now just wise jedi who feel out of place amongst what Nord culture was supposed to look like, a lot of what was supposed to be Nord culture got reduced to surface-level references (e.g killing an ice wraith for Galmar), the Orcs are a lot more barbaric than they should be with their armor looking like shit when its supposed to be pretty and ornate, etc.

                You also mentioned Dragonborn as Bethesda doing weird shit, which is ridiculous since the whole thing is just surface-level Morrowind references, with no actual passion or understanding. Miraak's existence contradicts Oblivion lore, the writers didn't know that House Telvanni was supposed to own land in the mainland, the Dunmer regularly invoke the names of Daedra that aren't the threw they worship, etc.

                Tolerance and commerce and respecting the empire. Do you not know what an imperial is?
                That is why the "divide" in imperials never made any sense as the empire progressed at got stronger. It would have obviously reduced any sort of divide to just the most surface level thing.

                That is the fricking problem with you "weird" cum guzzlers
                You read a book LITERALLY written centuries before the games and want it to stay the same not even knowing so cities and cultures change

                Oblivion wasn't boring and it would have looked stupid as a jungle

                Nords were ALWAYS more xenophobic of the races and weren't just "shaman" people worshipping the weather.
                Again you act like a fricking empire ruling for centuries doesn't change a culture because you read one line in a book.

                The series is better than ever and no one fricking gives a shit about your complaints.

                >and it takes away from Elswyr being the jungle province
                But anon that region is mostly badlands and dry plains until you get to the southern regions which is only then rainforest.

                Which is why it would be dumb for Cyrodill to also be a jungle. Continue to cope about completely surface level shit like "muh jungle" when the towers stuff is the weirdest and most interesting stuff in the series so far

                >and it takes away from Elswyr being the jungle province
                Yes, just like how the other half of Elsweyr takes away from Hammerfell being a desert, or how southern Elsweyr takes away from Valenwood also being a jungle, or how northern Cyrodiil takes away from Skyrim being a cold place

                Man you're ignorant of even real life cultures if you think the southern aristocracy isn't still a thing that holds disproportionate power in the south, and that the cultural divide between the north and the south is simply "they have different food and talk different".

                Aesthetics, i.e material culture, are a pretty major aspect of culture, while "being tolerant" is not, that's an Empire's policy not a nation's cultural trait. And I don't see how the Imperials being tolerant would magically make things like the Nibenese's battlemage-centric society, Colovian feudalism militarism, and Nordic folk religion disappear, if anything it would be the opposite. In fact that's exactly how things worked before Oblivion, Imperial tolerance was the reason Cyrodiil was so culturally diverse.

                And funny enough these divides are mentioned in Skyrim as well, Titus Mede I for example wasn't simply called an Imperial King in lore, he was called a Colovian King. That cultural divide exists in the two game not set in Cyrodiil, but doesn't in the game that is.

                It wasn't before Oblivion made it that way, that is what everybody itt is trying to tell you, there was MORE to Imperial culture before Oblivion reduced it to what it is today and that's a bad thing because it's fricking boring.

                Take the Pocket Guide to the Empire, in-universe, that shit written was written after Cyrodiil spent centuries united under an empire that was even more centered around cyrodiilic unity than the Septim Empire, and even then, the place is still two different nations, the implication is that no matter how long Cyrodiil stays united, there would still be a divide between east and west. And guess what? That is still the case, because the absence of the divide in Oblivon exists because of dev time constraints, at no point did the devs working in Oblivion ever think of your headcanon on why the divide is gone.

                Where did he say that
                I never said Oblivion wasn't more traditional European fantasy style, which it still really isn't beyond the most surface level stuff like castles
                I said it wasn't generic

                > I think the differences in Colovia West vs the Nibenay East are far too subtle. A thousand other things as well, but at some point you have to step back and say "ok, the game does enough stuff" and finish it.

                And funny enough these divides are mentioned in Skyrim as well, Titus Mede I for example wasn't simply called an Imperial King in lore, he was called a Colovian King. That cultural divide exists in the two game not set in Cyrodiil, but doesn't in the game that is.

                Yeah that's the funniest part. Skyrim has ancestor moths and Roman-esque imperial legionaries, and therefore more imperial culture stuff than Oblivon.

                What? imperials were always about tolerance and commerce from the very first framing of them
                Yes pocket guide was written BEFORE Tiber Septim united all of Tamriel for the first time

                Too subtle isn't "the west and east are entirely culturally different and basically are two separate nations". It could be stuff like different accents for foods or dress.

                There is no reason for there to be a huge cultural divide like a literal mage aristocracy by the time the games happen. It would be fricking dumb for imperials, the most tolerant of all the races not entirely unite behind the empire as just imperials and still hold onto some militaristic culture in the west and mage/commerce culture in the east

                It is fricking dumb and makes no sense in the setting as it exists

                Giants are in Skyrim

                Yes all of Tamriel is weird. There are plenty of weird things in Skyrim like the Forsworn being pagan type people. But that is balanced with Skyrim being also a nordic viking type province

                If you want just absolutely weird shit play Morrowind. That is the entirely weird province and it doesn't need to infect every other setting in the series because you people can't just stop guzzling Kirkbrides cum

                And the future of the series with the towers is the most interesting and "weird" shit so far, TES 6 will be amazing considering the tech improvement from Starfield.

From the shore it is hard to tell what is city and what is Palace, for it all rises from the islands of the lake towards the sky in a stretch of gold. Whole neighborhoods rest on the israeliteeled bridges that connect the islands together. Gondolas and river-ships sail along the watery avenues of its flooded lower dwellings. Moth-priests walk by in a cloud of ancestors; House Guards hold exceptionally long daikatanas crossed at intersections, adorned with ribbons and dragon-flags; and the newly arrived Western legionnaires sweat in the humid air. The river mouth is tainted red from the tinmi soil of the shore, and river dragons rust their hides in its waters. Across the lake the Imperial City continues, merging into the villages of the southern red river and ruins left from the Interregnum.

                I remember back when Skyrim was relatively new, among the Skyrim newbies who even knew about it, a fairly popular headcanon was that in was imperial propaganda aimed at dehumanizing the Khajiit, a belief they'd never have if they played morrowind, where the Khajiit themselves regularly mention it

                The ships have loading screens because of several design limitations like each ship having a different possible gravity direction and making every combination of loading bay and docking ports have appropriate animated would be a massive pain in the ass. Whatever the limitations are regarding ship interiors are not what you're think they are, especially since you'd know that the outside world is fully functional while you're inside the ship if you ever played the game.

                The separated interiors are mostly done for performance optimization, and to minimize the odds of any quest content inside become bugged.

                Honestly, having brief loading screens (assuming you're on an SSD) when entering buildings isn't the problem if you have an open-world design like Fallout or Elder Scrolls.
                Starfield's problem is that there isn't any real free-roam world connecting everything, so it's just back to back loading screens everywhere you go.

                Says who? I primarily hear that shit from corporate execs that want to justify their partnerships with nvidia and constant graphics bullshit. A lot of wildly successful games have shit graphics but good artstyle, like stardew valley, or animal crossing, or monster hunter. Bethesdas problem isn't graphics, its that all their games are artistically shit looking nowadays. Their space game which was so irrelevant i forgot its fricking name suffered from this. Everything looked like shit, like a worse version of fallout 4, somehow. Not to mention the game was barely held together due to developer incompetence.

                This is what I think the issue was with the gamebryo engine. Not the engine itself but that bethesda is wildly incompetent. They even mentioned remaking the engine for the space game for elder scrolls but that seemingly went nowhere. Their own developers can't make quests or program shit worth a frick nowadays, and basic shit they used to do easily is too much work. They've even somehow made modding itself worse and more restrictive.

              The ship interiors are their own cell in the game files. They are far from seamless, same thing with moving into space. Bethesda didn't bog the game up with load screens just for fun. They did it because they had to. Sure in the history of the engine, but the cities are laughably more closed than anything in Cyberpunk or Elden Ring. The entire experience is janky with no upside because the engine is shit.

                The engine itself has nothing to do with the perceived limitations of Starfield (especially since the perceptions are often straight up wrong) and you need to actually play games before trying to talk about them.
                Besides, saying it's the same engine is as moronic as saying a game using UE1 is the same as UE5, it's pure ignorance or intentionally ignoring the fact that the engine is always being updated with every release. CE had a massive graphical overhaul for Starfield and even previously released games like Skyrim had many core engine updates backported from other subsequent releases not only for graphics but also mod content formats, stability and scripting functionality that lifted many limitations old Skyrim had regarding modding.

      All the playable races have diaspora everywhere in Tamriel for NPC diversity purposes.

      However, Argonians in particular are implied to be everywhere In Tamriel for vaguely nefarious purposes. In the Redguard spin-off game, there was only one Argonian NPC, he owned a bar, which seems innocent at first, but he says he only does it to gather potentially useful information on human behavior so that his tribe can fight the Empire more effectively when Tiber Septim invades Black Marsh.

    Are Bethesda moronic enough to release this as actual concept art or is this thread just full of gullible twits?

    >Cyrodiil was canonically a beautiful jungle when Pelinal Whitestrake was alive
    >most of his skirmishes took place within lush, subtropical thickets, as he painted ferns and mangroves with Elven blood
    >game never draws attention to this even though it's canonically true
    >this fact went over TES fan's head
    >lorelet morons always draw Pelinal fanart thinking he lived in a shitty temperate European forest
    TES is, first and foremost, a franchise for moronic people.

    Bethesda is owned by MS now. The smart money is on their next game being total shit and missing the spark of what Beth games had before.

      the hollywoodification of games with insane production barriers has been a disaster for the human race, I wonder if it's even possible to turn back

        AI could theoretically re-level the playing field, though with how big the LLMs are, the computing power it takes to use them, and the refusal to make such things open source, it will probably just turn into a "pay $500 million to make your game with AI or $500 million to pay for the infrastructure to have the developers necessary."

        There's also another possibility where AAA games take so much time and money, yet get so little returns, that all the big boys collapse and only indies remain. That seems to be happening at the moment.

    They already got rid of their digitgrade legs in Oblivion what's next just making them literal cat/lizard girls like FFXIV nothing ever gets better in Bethesda games so I'm not expecting these changes to be for the good at all.
