I’ve been practicing with the Morrowind Construction Set, and have put together a Hlaalu-style house. The exterior places an ex_hlaalu_b_06 on a new bit of land in Seyda Neen -2, -9 (just beyond the shacks). My main goal here is to show off interior modding, but I did want to create an exterior shell for the place.
The idea is that this is a vacation home belonging to a spoiled Hlaalu aristocrat by the name of Evsen Vyldros. It’s illegal to sleep within, and I’m pretty sure all of the items are listed as belonging to Evsen.
I tried to make the interior match the exterior. Building 06 appears to be three floors high. The first floor is the biggest, and has a fully set dining room, a well-stocked wine rack, a small library, and a writing desk. There are two windows, one near the door and another on the opposite end, near the desk. Evsen can be found here. I created a new model, though I didn’t add any dialogue.
I wasn’t sure if I should make the second floor the same size as the first. Though it appears to be the same size from outside, the edges would also have a sloping roof that I do not think is possible to create with the existing interior spaces. Thus, I settled for making it smaller. The second floor acts as the bedroom. A single window on the eastern wall acts as a sort of alarm clock (since the resident will see the sun when it rises).
The only staircase is the exterior one. It always kind of bothered me that a lot of Hlaalu homes seemed to have redundant staircases, so I decided to just stick with what was already in place.
A trapdoor in the second floor leads to the attic, where there’s a surprise :)
Specifically, there’s a level 1 skeleton and a journal detailing Evsen’s necromantic activities.
The interior cells are named “Hlaalu Vacation House” and “Hlaalu Vacation House Attic”. I apologize for not using the conventional naming standard. At this point, I’m not sure how to change the names of interior cells. I’ve tested it myself, and everything appears to work. Though there is a story of sorts to this mod, there aren’t any quest triggers.
Please take a look. While my time is limited, I would love to have the opportunity to design a few interiors for Tamriel Rebuilt. Let me know how this looks, and what I should practice.
