Does anyone know how to manual install nif addon i try to open http://www.niftools.org/projects/plugins/blender_nif_plugin/docs/ but there are nothing in there.

I'm not 100% however I believe you would drop the plugins into that folder. there isn't anything there because you are suppose to add things there.

As for the blender version, I believe it is depending on which game you  want to mod. (not that it won't work but the tools work with that version of the Blender better) For the most part from what I have seen people are using the older versions to mod Fallout 3, NV and I believe even the Old 'rim (Skyrim 32bit) So the people answering that might need to know the games you plan on modding or working with (provided that is the reason  you are asking ;) )

Hopefully someone with actual experience "using" the program can chime in and give a better and more complete answer. :)

I'm using Blender 2.78a.  Within Blender, go to Preferences and Install it like a Mod basically. Blender/File/Preferences/Addons/Install from File. Once Installed check the Box to on=installed ready too use. Yes you install it as a Zip file, just like a Mod lol.

 Personally, i see Folks venting and fuming over SKSE64 for Skyrim64, but they don't hold a Candle to the painfully slow almost abandon-ware of Blender Nif plugin tools.

Timing couldn't have been more perfect. Been thinking about getting back into blender and finally just pushing to start getting into 3d modeling. I never liked 2.49b to be honest. I was getting used to 2.6x+ but there was never a nif plugin for it.

Just downloaded the latest 2.79b and this nif plugins is said to support it.

To be honest I can't say I'm 100% sure. I found the link on LL in a Skyrim LE thread so I'm going to assume it works for Skyrim LE and not SSE. I can't back that up though.

I going to assume... you will be trying it with Skyrim LE :P  As well as possibly other games... (Fallout NV, etc)

In any case thanks for the update.

Ever wondered how a game dev can populate a planet size map with different settlements, buildings, interiors, even NPCs, flora and fauna etc.? An impossible task when done by hand. Why not utilize machine learning and let the computer do it for you?

      Okay, I figured I would open a thread on Cyberpunk 2077 so that we all could have a discussion about. Feel free to speculate, criticize, hate it, love it and so on.
      For those who haven't kept up much on Cyperpunk 2077, or never heard of the game, Cyperpunk 2077 is an RPG based off the original Cyberpunk 2020 which is a table top/pen and paper RPG created by Mike Pondsmith, which sets the Cyberpunk world exactly 57 years later. From what we do know, classes haven't changed, but we will see how the world has progressed from then to now. We also know that CDPR is trying to keep to the originality of the game as much as possible. Below I have listed what we know so far about CP2077 and what we can expect to be featured in the game. However, because this game is still in development and not much is really known about this game, take some of these things with a grain of salt.
       
      I will be updating this thread with new information and related videos with CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk 2077. But if you want to really know more on what Cyberpunk (the game) is about, I suggest researching on Cyberpunk 2020 as it will help give an idea and understanding of Cyberpunk 2077. Some of the things in the trailer from back in 2013 are references from the table top RPG that presumably might be in CP2077 from what we see.
      Also, feel free to post any new information you find.
      Here's a brief history of this game's development throughout the years and relevant information that YongYea kindly put together in regards to CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk 2077.
       
      Update: 6-10-2018
      cyberpunk website
      2018 E3 CDPR's Cyperpunk 2077 Trailer
       
      What we can expect so far is...
      CP2077 will be on the latest Red Engine 4. Play as male or female. Open world sandbox. Allow you to customize you character's appearance and choose the class/role you want. Multi-player will be a feature in the game. Driveable vehicles on ground and in air. Motorcycles seems to be on that list. It is confirmed that CP2077 wil be FPP and TPP (first person and third person shooter and view). CP2077 will be about you saving yourself and not about saving the world. Drugs and more than likely sex as well since this is a very mature based game. That, and Witcher 3 had sex scenes in that game, so it's no surprise if we see this level of mature content in CP2077. Braindance which is basically a brain implant that lets you experiences someone else's life experience first hand. If you're a rockstar and someone buys an implant of your on stage perfomance, they will live that experience themselves through braindance. implants/augmentations that will significantly boost your character depending the role/class you are as each role/class will have advantages of certain implants over others. Attire and implants will have an impact on NPCs. How much in CP2077 is uncertain at this point. The way it will have an impact is by certain implants and NPCs reactions towards you and those modifications. Each role/class will have their advantages over others and more than likely their weaknesses. It's like the SPECIAL used in Fallout 1 and 2 where you have slight advantages but also disadvantages as well. It's not a system meant to create the perfect and godly characters. CP2077 will have multi-launguage implemented in it. What this does is the world will have NPCs of different ethnicity that will talk in their native language. And in order for you the player to be able to understand what they're saying, you'll have to buy a translating implant. CP2077 will be a not so distance from the future rather than a futuristic sci-fi game. CP2077 takes place a little over 50 years after CP2020 so you will see weapons (and perhaps gear as well) from the 2020 era more modified in 2077.  
      Related Videos in spoiler.
