Did You Know: The most money you can acquire in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is 2,147,483,647 Septims? Picking up a single drake more than that will cause your gold count to overflow, and go to the most negative value possible.
Has anyone got this on vanilla Skye in without exploits or bugs?
Let’s say that you have perfect skills for trading, you fully upgraded the Thieves Guild and you have invested in them, giving fences roughly 5,500 gold. Also for convenience, you have enough items that are zero weight or are stashed in a convenient location along the route we’ll make.
Since we can’t do exploits, we can’t reset merchants in an easy way, and creating a route between the five stationary fences is your best bet (ignoring the Khajiit merchants, they’re too much of a rogue variable). With a route between them, they should reset in a reasonable amount of time.
Now it’s just a matter of math: 2,147,483,647 divided by 5,500 equal
~390,451. So you would have to complete roughly 390,451 transactions to finish this route, assuming you somehow just had the items necessary to do this already.
So field testing shows some problems, mainly this person.
This is Endon. Now Endon can go straight to hell. Unlike the other fences, who have fairly reliable schedules and don’t go to many different places, Endon just does whatever Endon wants. It took me three minutes to visit the first four fences and open up a transaction and switch to selling in my testing, but if you add in Endon to the mix, that became four and a half minutes! Endon does not respect you or time, you’ll have to do this without him.
So that leaves us with four fences because Endon is not a reasonable option. To waste the necessary time to reset, I would still travel to Markarth, but just instantly leave it. So with this rotation
transactions divided by 4 gives you ~97612 circuits. Multiply that by three minutes gives you an estimated completion time of
seconds, or 1,171,353 minutes, or 19,522.55 hours, or 813.4 days to complete with no breaks, and us skipping the “prep” time of you getting the items necessary to sell.
In conclusion, I do not believe anyone has done this. To be clear, nobody SHOULD do this. All you’re doing is overflowing an integer, at the cost of two and a quarter years of your life.

APPLEFACT: It’s true! Although apples are a delicious and nutritious treat for all ages, the seeds contain a compound called amygdalin, which turns into cyanide in your stomach, and THAT can make a pony (and you) very, VERY sick.
Always remember to spit out apple seeds, as eating too many can be harmful and even fatal!
Don’t worry about Jappleack, though. As a cartoon character, she eats cartoon apples, which have candy seeds
APPLEFACT: The world’s largest apple peel was created by Kathy Wafler Madison on October 16, 1976, in Rochester, NY. It was 172 feet, 4 inches long. (She was 16 years old at the time and grew up to be a sales manager for an apple tree nursery.)
