Book Writing (1.0) - File Description  

This mod allows the player to use the before- useless quills to write a book. Because this is my first version, the book is blank, but it is worth 10 gold. The player starts out with 10 quills. When you use a quill, it is removed from the player. Sorry for the lack of screenshots. It really isn't much to look at. All you see is a message telling you that you wrote a book, and a copy of your book is added

sounds like lots of fun! but can you write the text yourself or can you only make books wich are already in the game?

Oh buhjeezus I have always wanted to be able to write stuff in Oblivion. If I were to suggest something it would be this:

- Make it so that an NPC sells blank scrolls which you can write in. This is a must.
- This NPC may also sell bound books, which can have assorted covers and thicknesses.
- Quills should come in various types, if there are different models for them (Or create your own) then you can have finer ones which will create a more structured print. Less expensive quills could use different and perhaps more crude prints. This is optional but may be fun for some people.
- If possible, give us the opportunity to name our books/scrolls.

I would really really enjoy a feature like this (thus my enthusiasm with it) but unfortunately I'm no frickin' help code-wise. If you wanted someone to beta test it or to bounce ideas off though, I'm your man xD along with the rest of the Oblivion community.

I think that perhaps, leading on from what Scorian said, you should also make it so that you can create "magical" books that enhance skills ect, though this should be more difficult and expensive to do. And perhaps the ability to make spell scrolls or something like that, perhaps using the Arkane university in one way or another.

Great idea! Hope u can add writing your own text...
Btw,speaking of parchments smile is there a way (console command) to remove targeted items from the world? I thrown some empty parchments by mistake in my Bruma house and (don't know why) i can't take them anymore,only read them...Small problem,but a bit annoying...

Damn, I have always wanted to write a book in Oblivion. I am not saying you should do this, But for the girls that play oblivion and like to have backstory. Add in Diary's that you can add too and also show at the top something like this.

Dear Diary "Date in game"

Oh my god, Today i killed the whole Imperial City guard it was soooo much fun!
I cant wait to go back tomarow and kill more pepole!

Super Crazy Insane Lady

Not sayin ya need to but i would write in it myself.

well i dont know b ut i think if u open console then click on a parchment u can type player.removeitem (and then the parchment id) to make it disappear.. but i think that only works for items in your inventory... otherwise just place some bottles on tables and fill them with parchments or throw the parchments into some fire lol

I am making progress on version 2. This time, the normal quill writes a real book, and there are now destruction, water(breathing and walking), illusion, mysticism, and conjuration quills. These quills can all be found in a chest I have yet to create and they will allow you to write various magic scrolls. I am still working on how to make a player-input text box in a book to allow the player to write his or her own novels.

i got some ideas of the second versions

-NPC's can buy your book and read em your fame will go up too(if its good of course)
-NPC's will react to the book
Example:FU** SH** FU** SH**(of courese people won't buy them)
-your books will get a rank of 1-10, 10 is the best book, 5 is not so bad, 1 is terrible

I am hoping that in future versions, there will be a new skill called 'Literature' or something. And your book's value will depend on how high your literature skill is. That would be really cool.

Will there be different book models to buy to write in, like the Tome of Unlife model, super rare book models, common, y'know, the models of every book should be available.

Also , ink thingies need a use. You could make it so that the quality of a quill affects how long it will write, and an ink thingie will refill the quills ink. So like if you have 1 quill, ur book/scroll, and an ink thingie. (I can't remember the full name!!!) When your quill runs out of ink, instead of being removed from your inventory, the ink thingy gets taken away first.

I was wondering... with the scripting language, how do you change the text in a book? Cause I was trying to make a scroll that changed its enchantment depending on what day it is. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

Not DLing until V2... i have allways wanted to write books in oblivion as Crazy cool stickers said it would be great to write diary (no i'm not a girl you...) or write about your background before you got into the prison (or if youre using alternative start mods then before you got to that place...)

im new here from new zealand.I wanna say this mod would be great if you could make and write your own books of different types. It would make the realm of oblivion so much better especially in ones house. As a writer in real life I feel being able to sit down in a virtual environ and write would be the bomb do it do it do it please!!!!
Imagine the old vampire builds his own library and even writes the books wow.

HOnestly this mod sucks. If you can figure out how to "write" in the book it might be pretty sweet. And if you figure out how to do that then you get into other things like making your own magic spells by writing key words in certain order on scrolls. Now that would be sweet.

You know what would make this really interesting? In V2, if the books you write show up in other games. You know, say you have three characters on your computer and you use one to write a book, say his name is Jack and he writes "War and Peace: Short version." You should make it so that when you go on another character you can read the book "War and Peace: Short version, by Jack" with them.

If that makes any sense.
