Other Issues: Showcase guidelines indicate that a 3x2x2 size building or at least 12 tiles. Yours is 11, so it needs to be expanded by 1 tile. The easiest way to do this is to expand the basement by one tile, while ensuring it still fits the exterior. T_Bk_DunmersGuideToReachSHOTN is from S:HotN. It should be removed. T_IngFlor_Bleakbell_01 is from S:HotN. It should be removed. There are several imported wines in this interior, while the owner of the house is a low-middle class merchant. If the house contains an expensive item like imported alcohol, there should be only one. I'm curious about the presence of a Silverware chest "chest_small_02_silverwa". You could arguably keep it if it is intended to be merchandise, but as general clutter I would argue that silverware is too expensive. T_IngFood_Grape_02 is imported. It needs to be removed. T_IngFood_Carrot_01 is imported. It needs to be removed. T_IngMine_Topaz_01 is a high value item. Its presence is questionable. You could keep it as potential merchandise, but keep in mind the merchant also has imported alcohol which is expensive as well. The door on the ground floor needs to be removed or fixed. It blocks the bed when the door is opened. If the door is removed, you may choose to keep or remove the doorframe. Both the desk and the dining table could use a chair/stool. Feel free to modify the table to smaller size to accomodate this if it gets cramped (see vanilla or TR ints for how to do this). The furniture on the ground floor leading to the bedroom is messing with the pathgrid as it is too cramped. It needs to be cleared out on one side. The remaining furniture could be moved anywhere. The interior could use at least a couple tapestries. More clutter is needed. Personally, I would recommend filling up at least one of the furn_de_p_bookshelf_01 with de cups, bowls, goblets, pots, etc. Right now the interior feels a little bit bare. If you are choosing to keep some of the merchant's merchandise in the house, which the presence of valuable items like books and gems would suggest, I would recommend a variety of merchandise. Remember, most merchandise sold by merchants is generally crap, so feel free to leave some misc merchandise on the shelves or in the basement.
Tips: Please follow this guide before attempting to place items on the de_p furniture: https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/content/tutorial-item-placement-tutorial When placing the sacks (or other items that need to be bled) on de_p furniture (or other slanted surfaces), try to tilt them a degree or two in the direction of the slant. Always rotate items (on z-axis) AFTER they have been tilted on a slanted surface. Do not tilt the round sacks over by 6 degrees like you have been doing in the claim, it is making them float. Bleeding them is much easier if they are not tilted (when on flat ground). Always be aware of the usage of any item you use. Certain items (like carrots) are not found in morrowind and thus can't be used in your interior. Never hesitate to check out what vanilla and other TR ints did in houses, it can help you a lot for ideas. However, do not straight up copy them. If you have any questions, feel free to post in the discord or ping me.
Overall this interior has many minor issues, but it is fundamentally a decent interior. If you spend time to fix these issues, it will absolutely be good enough to pass review.
reviewing the exterior
Clean: No Plenty of dirt cells Region "delete me" is not deleted Take a look at this https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/content/utility-tesame Consider naming all the cells important to your showcase and deleting everything not named, though I wouldn't recommend keeping this habit for claims
Everywhere Some under water flora clusters are too packed while the surrounding area is undetailed Hlaalu doors should be set further in the frame ex_hlaalu_dsteps_03 shouldn't be used under balcony steps, but need to be used on every other ground level opening Lanterns should be resting on their hooks without bleeding or floating. Some buildings have butresses way too close to the corners furn_de_signpost_02s need a banner Tops of the guard towers need trap doors Check wireframe (W) to look for rough and spikey terrain Even though the West Gash doesn't have vertex shading between textures, you should get in the habit of doing so here since that is TR standard
Gash Island -16,6 In the top left corner there is a Flora_kelp_03 that is sunk too deep in the ground, and 2 in_cave_plants that are resting on one point that should be sunk more In the rock cluster at the bottom, I would avoid using such large rocks like this, since most of the rock is hidden under ground you can use something smaller In the big rock cluster near the middle there is a lighting seam, the blue coast ref should be raised enough to hide the seam There is some rough terrain that should be smoothed between the bottom right side of the terrain_rock_wg_10 in this group, and the rock arch in the next cluster Every cluster of rocks under water has an arch, rock arches should not be this common On the shore there is a Terrain_rocks_WG_03 hidden under terrain that should be deleted Below the hlaalu building there is a Com_Chest_11_moonsugar that is hidden under terrain and should be deleted In the bottom right at the top of the hill and under the trees there is some rough terrain that needs to be smoothed out On the hlaalu balcony, the furn_de_rug_big_06 should be bled into the floor a bit so the tassles are barely floating. This will always be the case with rugs like this There is some rough terrain that needs to be smoothed below the balcony on the north Pathgrid on the balcony is unnecessary
Gash Island -15,6 North road by the coast is rough and spikey Terrain_rocks_WG_03 on the east border beneath the road is floating Terrain_rocks_WG_04 beneath the road and between the 2 stair cases is caspering, which means that one or more back sides with no model face are showing This area has more rock groups than needed flora_stoneflower_01 on the coast in the west has a leaf bleeding into a rock flora_tree_wg_04 on top of the hill has a branch bleeding into a hlaalu building terrain_rock_wg_08 on the west border by the coast is missing vertex shading flora_tree_wg_06 near the west border has branches bleeding into a hlaalu building I don't understand why the ex_hlaalu_b_02 in the bottom left has entrances facing the wall instead of what appears to be the town square Some of the barrels on this building are floating because the floor is slightly sloped Lots of bleeders on the 2 furn_de_ex_table_03s on the roof of the ex_hlaalu_b_18. Consider using the much easier de_p set instead of these nightmare tables The walls connecting this building and the neighboring ex_hlaalu_b_03 look bad and block what could have been another path Too much vertex shading under these buildings flora_tree_wg_06 by the curved wall has a branch bleeding into a hlaalu building flora_tree_wg_05 by the curved wall and the north west gate has a branch bleeding into the wall Some sacks on the top of the guard tower need to be sunk ex_hlaalu_buttress_04 on top of the steps to the ex_hlaalu_b_24 are not meant to be used like this Crates south of the ex_hlaalu_b_24 and on the west side of the wall are sunk too deep barrel_01_saltrice beneath the guar tarp and between the 2 butresses of the ex_hlaalu_b_05 isn't resting on enough points furn_de_overhang_01 on the south side of the ex_hlaalu_b_24 should be raised a bit so everyone can fit under, and all the furniture under this tarp are bleeding into the ground awkwardly Crates by the south west corner of the ex_hlaalu_b_06 are all sunk too deep misc_de_bowl_redware_02 on the balcony with the 2 small tables between the gates is sitting on one point, weird pointy bowls like this can be bled into the surface potion_comberry_brandy_01 floating above a chair that is bleeding into a ex_hlaalu_b_11 left of the north east gate Table on the stair case balcony of the bent building make the doorstep look too cramped Some baskets under the guar tarp of this house are sunk too deep into the ground Drinks on the de_p table on the balcony of the building in the bottom middle are bleeding into the table furn_de_r_chair_03 floating above the balcony of ex_hlaalu_b_09 same balcony has a floating basket with eggs bleeding through the bottom
Gash Island -14,6 Texture seam showing on the shore north of the big arch The road terrain is extremely rough and spikey, especially where the road touches the canal Floating crate on the north side of the canal Crate bleeding into trim on the south side of the canal All sacks on the canal need to be sunk a bit Terrain_rocks_WG_02 on top of the hill in the bottom left, this type of rock group shouldn't be used like this flora_tree_wg_03 by the south border in the middle has a branch bleeding into a rock
Gash Island -13,6 Texture seam showing on the hill by the shore, next to a terrain_rock_wg_01 Spikey terrain that needs smoothing on top of the hill by the terrain_rock_wg_10
Gash Island -12,6 Spikey terrain that needs smoothing south of the tomb entrance Land is under detailed
Gash Island -16,5 Another huge rock arch here not being used as an arch Terrain_rocks_WG_02 north of the temple caspering and upside down, don't use these like this Most trees by the temple have leaves bleeding into the terrain or a rock Top of the hill in the north east corner needs smoothing Terrain_rocks_WG_04 at the bottom on the shore has a caspering rock, and should be moved further into terrain so less rock is showing
Gash Island -15,5 Some rock groups on the beach are missing shading Road is EXTREMELY rough and spikey Trees by the south gate have leaves bleeding into the buildings flora_tree_wg_05 by the rocks on the east border has leaves bleeding into the ground and rocks flora_tree_wg_03 in the town has branches bleeding through buildings ex_hlaalu_wall_01 hidden completely in the bent building and should be deleted ex_hlaalu_b_22 looks weird to be partially blocking the gate like that furn_de_forge_01 seems randomly placed ex_hlaalu_b_05 rotated building? Why? furn_de_r_table_03 north side of the guard towers bleeding into wall and terrain The wall attached to the north guard tower seems pointless Door to south guard tower out of frame
Gash Island -14,5 Road is well smoothed in this cells flora_chokeweed_02 between the grove and the road has the bottom of the stem poking through the top of the terrain Terrain spike by the east border between terrain_rock_wg_09 and Terrain_rocks_WG_01 Terrain spike south of the ex_dwrv_ruin10 just on the edge of the road Terrain spike near the east border to the right of the terrain_rock_wg_08 where the scrub meets the corner of that brown texture Brown hill on the south border by the beach needs smoothing
Gash Island -13,5 Rough spikey spots along the road A stoneflower in the bottom left corner, above the road and by the dwemer tower has a leaf bleeding into the ground Terrain up the hill north of the dwemer tower is rough and needs smoothing, and there is a big spike on the scrub Terrain_rocks_WG_01 near the top right on the brown trail is hidden under terrain Most of the hill needs smoothing Terrain_rocks_WG_01 by the north border is caspering Terrain_rocks_WG_03 in the middle, close to the top, is floating
Gash Island -12,5 Texture seam near the bottom left where rocky scrub meets scrub and brown texture Land is under detailed
Gash Island -14,4 Rough spikey terrain by the north border and the shore, to the right of some trees. Continues to the half way point of the border and cave entrance Entire hill has rough terrain that needs to be smoothed
Gash Island -13,4 The road in the dwemer ruin is very rough and needs smoothing Terrain_rocks_WG_04 in the top left thats sticking out of terrain_rock_wg_10 like that does not look good Terrain_rocks_WG_02 in the bottom left is hardly showing, should be moved to be more visible or deleted terrain_rock_wg_01 at the bottom of the circle road is caspering
Gash Island -12,4 Texture seam slightly below a rock group at the beginning of the road in the top left One of the plain brown trees is missing vertex shading Terrain_rocks_WG_04 south of the rock cluster and by the salt rice, shouldn't be used like this 2 large rocks underneath the terrain below your huge rock cluster On the right side of the rock cluster there is a large rock being used as a small rock Consider replacing the terrain_rock_wg_10 in the cluster with terrain
Gash Island -13,3 Rock group covering texture seam on the beach needs vertex shading
Gash Island -12,3 Rock group covering texture seam on the beach in the east needs vertex shading Texture seam below the wooden dock Rocks by the dock need vertex shading Dock is very high up compared to the boat Road is well smoothed except for a spot in the west under a terrain_rock_wg_09
Comment time Your path grids are all well done, your paths are very well sunk, you seem to have covered most of the texture seams, and your vertex shading is mostly good. You also shaded around the coast which is really good. I don't really understand the layout of the town or why everything is so rotated, but you do have a pretty good level of detail here. This may seem like a huge list of errors but your showcase was just pretty huge in general so don't worry about it. Once you fix most of these errors you can be promoted for exterior development.
