My Smithings gone loopy!

Hi there

I am playing the new update and my smithing skills just went up 10 levels after upgrading 2 daggers! Now you may say "happy days!" but however lazy I am, even I need more of a challenge.

Now I am modded up to the hilt so I can except there may be a conflicts there, but surely thats not how the new smithing should be? is it? :/

Also is this an appropriate place to put Beta comments or is there an official post?

And finally, SKYRIM ROCKS!

I would say the best place would be the Bethesda Forums

lol no longer are you able to power level fast just by creating Iron Daggers. Nice to see they finally fixed that issue.

Although, it sucks now that I will have to start making different items in order to level smithing.

Anyone know what the kill criteria for triggering a ranged killcam? I must have sneak killed Proventus' daughter like 20 times with no killcam.

While ingame, press esc to bring up the menu. The version number should be located in the bottom left side corner of the menu.

If your menu reads "1.4.2x.x" then you have not updated to the beta patch (and which case, should follow the steps outlined in the first few posts in this topic).

no mounted torch fix.
Anyhoo, I'm assuming any mod(s) that deals with kill-cams should be removed prior to installing the beta-patch?
