As the guy who tries to keep Graphic Herbalism (link is external) updated for TR (and now Tamriel_Data), I’m running into issues and I hit my limited NIFScope modeling abilities.
For those not familiar with Graphic Herbalism, it essentially pioneered Skyrim’s harvesting mechanic, in which plants directly deposit their ingreditents and either disable themselves or switch to a “picked” (harvested) state until 30 days later. It’s immensely popular and I took to updating the TR addon when the prior caretakers dropped off the face of the earth.
Tamriel_Data has left me at an impassé: the PT assets most of all are made up of one solid chunk of mesh (a twisted tube), and so I can’t create “picked” state with my limited NIFScope meshing abilities. This includes trees and giant mushroom *things* which really shouldn’t disappear.
It would be immensely helfpul if all Flora would have a statement if it should disappear when harvested or if should display a “picked” state. An official mesh of this “picked” state, to be included in Graphic Herbalism or Tamriel_Data (preferable Graphic Herbalism) would be really really great.
Seneca was going to supply official plucked meshes for TR, but then he disappeared too and Tamriel_Data happened. Is there any chance of making this official or unofficial policy?
I used to have a list of meshes that were problematic, but I’ll point to Bleakbell Hay, Shadowfly, Silver Palm, and the Socatra Plant as meshes that I simply can’t edit and which are too big to simply have disappear when harvested.
Edit: Attached a prerelease version, which is currently all I have. There are some edited meshes inside. The ones that haven’t been edited are the ones I have trouble with.
