This initially took me about 15 minutes to code and package.

However, testing revealed that simply setting the quest stage to 1 on game load actually ended up interfering with normal MCM operations, causing delay.

Kicker now waits for MCM and well-behaved mods to do their thing before taking action. This works great!

Incidentally, for you modders, the common mistake that can cause MCM menu troubles is failure to:

; 1. Create quest (or use your existing mod quest if it already has one)
; 2. Add player alias to quest
; 3. Attach the SKI_PlayerLoadGameAlias script to player alias

(I've made this mistake many times! )

You are such an asset to this community. I just wanted you to know how much I personally appreciate you. I think you are terrific! Thank you for all you do and for all your hard work.

In response to post #18101169.

Thank you so much, Curt.

You guys are what really drives me. Can't say how happy I am that there's an audience for my stuff when it seems the most popular mods seem to be all about giant breasts, godlike powers, or comical cows.

In response to post #18101264.

Well it was a compelling great idea.

10 minutes to code. 40 minutes to test and fix. 5 minutes to package. 10 minutes to write a description. All in all an excellent hour wasted. :)

Thank you for sharing (hurray, first endorsement).

Would you mind adding a toggle for the message in the upper left corner?
It's just a bit scary to see the message all the time, especially when it will show something like ~"32 entries detected" and the next time "27 entries detected". Do you know anything about those different numbers, which I suppose is a "vanilla" MCM problem?

with best regards

Personally I agree with indycurt 150%. Plus, it's the little things that matter most.
As always, great coding and well behaved.
