There are ambitious mods, and then there are ambitious mods like Skyblivion, which, since the project's inception in 2012, has been steadily working toward remaking the entirety of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion using Skyrim's engine - and mod team TESRenewal has now shared a fresh look at its progress as part of a new video development diary.
The Skyblivion team has been steadily documenting its progress on YouTube since 2013 - hosting everything from livestreams of asset creation to developer interviews - but, as the project nudges ever-closer to completion, it's embarked on a series of development diaries, showcasing different aspects of the mod's reimagined Cyrodiil in action.
Niantic has announced the full slate of five-star raids for Pokemon Go in April, and trainers should prepare to face off against the third Alolan island guardian starting April 12.
Tapu Bulu, the game's third Legendary Pokemon hailing from the Alolan region, has been named as the latest Pokemon Go five-star raid, running from now until April 26. Tapu Bulu's time as the five-star raid Pokemon was announced along with the Pokemon Go April 2022 event schedule, which runs concurrently with the game's Season of Alola event introducing Pokemon Sun and Moon to the game.
Tapu Bulu is the third "Tapu" Pokemon to be introduced to Pokemon Go, with Tapu Koko and Tapu Lele already in the game and only Tapu Fini still to come. If you caught Tapu Koko and Tapu Lele you're on your way to completing the set, so if you're going to challenge the Tapu Bulu raid check out our tips below.
Tapu Bulu will be the featured five-star raid April 12-26, with two special Raid Hours planned during that time.
Tapu Bulu Raid Schedule
Tapu Bulu enters the five-star Raid ring starting April 12 at 10 AM local time, remaining there until 8 PM on April 26. Unfortunately the game does not follow any set schedules with its raid--there's no guarantee Tapu Bulu will be waiting for you--but the game constantly tells you who's around to raid, so just keep an eye out.
There is a glimmer of hope for those who need a Tapu Bulu appearance though: Pokemon Go's weekly Raid Hour on Wednesday night. Two of April's Raid Hour events--April 13 and 20 from 6 PM to 7 PM local time--will feature the Land Spirit Pokemon at nearly every Gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed shot at Tapu Bulu, gather your friends and head out after dinner on those two Wednesday nights.
Tapu Bulu Weaknesses And Counters
Tapu Bulu is a Grass- and Fairy-type Pokemon, a rare type duo in the world of Pokemon shared only by four other Pokemon: Generation V's Cottonee and Whimsicott, and Generation VII's Morelull and Shiinotic. While Tapu Bulu's typing is hard to find elsewhere, its five weaknesses should make building a team to counter it much easier to pin down.
Poison-type Pokemon are Tapu Bulu's Poke-Kryptonite, with Poison-type moves seeing increased effectiveness against both Grass and Fairy Pokemon. As such, Weezing, Nidoking/Nidoqueen, Muk, and Gengar will be invaluable in a fight with this island deity.
Fire-, Flying-, Ice-, and Steel-type moves are also extra effective against Tapu Bulu, so any mixture of Skarmory, Charizard--perhaps the Mega Charizard Y you caught in the current Mega Raid--Ho-Oh, Articuno, or Alolan Ninetales will be helpful in the battle ahead.
Types To Avoid
The Grass- and Fairy-type Tapu Bulu is resistant to seven Pokemon types, nearly half of the 18 types featured in Pokemon games, so there are plenty of Pokemon to avoid. Dark-, Dragon-, Electric-, Fighting-, Grass-, Ground-, and Water-type Pokemon will all be battling from behind against Tapu Bulu, so leave traditionally powerful Pokemon like Blastoise, Dragonite, Lucario, Umbreon, and Absol behind when challenging the raid.
There's still some time before Tapu Bulu joins the five-star raid roster, so get yourself ready by catching as many Grass-types as you can during the current Lush Jungle event, or take on the current five-star raid Tapu Lele if you haven't done so already.
It seems as if the virtual world is always reinventing itself these days, and the latest evidence of this phenomenon is “the metaverse”.

Thereby, under the rule of the crypto-friendly South Korean President, it is guaranteed that crypto adoption will surely flourish in the East Asian country.
AXEL, the leading technology company optimizing data privacy and security through its enterprise software solutions, announces that its AXEL Go app, the secure cloud-based file sharing solution for legal professionals, is now available through Clio, the world's leading provider of legal technology. Starting today, Clio's 150,000 users can collect and share files of any size, all within the Clio platform using AXEL Go, the secure file sharing and transfer software.
AXEL Go's unique security features can provide stringent defense against cyberthreats, while also helping to maintain proper workflow management. With its newly launched metadata preservation feature, AXEL Go is a defensible, cost effective and easy-to-use option for legal professionals to collect evidence, while preserving crucial metadata and for smaller document collections, AXEL Go eliminates the need for costly forensic examiners.
“We're excited that Clio's legal professionals can now experience AXEL Go and benefit from this intuitive and secure software that addresses their most important cybersecurity issues,” says Ben Ow, President and CTO of AXEL. “According to the ABA TechReport 2021, 25% of respondents reported that their firms had experienced a data breach at some point. AXEL Go is an easily implemented solution to help legal professionals organize their digital workspace, as well as keep their clients and practices safe from security risks.”
Clio, the most connected legal technology, is transforming the legal experience for all through cloud-based and client-centered solutions that integrate with 200+ apps. Firms of all sizes and practice areas use Clio to manage firm operations, improve client experiences, streamline billing and payments, and automate legal documents—saving lawyers valuable time and resources.
“AXEL Go deeply aligns with Clio's values of delivering cloud-based and client-centered technology for legal professionals— securely and from anywhere,” says Jack Newton, CEO and Founder of Clio. “This integration furthers our dedication to helping app developers build new experiences, launch their app with impact and reach more customers. We're thrilled to work with the whole AXEL team to bring this exciting integration into the Clio app ecosystem.”
While designed to be user-friendly and easily implemented for individuals and businesses of all sizes to protect data privacy and security, AXEL Go offers significant value to the legal industry in particular, where unique ethical, legal and confidential considerations are a major part of their day-to-day business. Built with blockchain technology and military-grade encryption, the mobile, desktop and web applications include a digital safe for highly sensitive documents with no size limits when sending or sharing files.
When files are shared with AXEL Go's secure sharing, they are split into small “shards” and distributed to various servers closest to the recipient. This process, which uses the same encryption technology that government agencies and the military use to secure their most confidential files, has no file size limits, doesn't require the other party to have an AXEL Go account to receive files and greatly reduces the risk of a data breach when the files are in transit. Users can also access reporting to show when their shared files were viewed and downloaded. And with the “Secure Fetch” feature they can also proactively request files from others through a secure channel with just a simple link, and in turn, recipients of a Secure Fetch link don't need an AXEL Go account to send any number of files or volume of data back.
