Uploaded the cut from Indoril

Rot's picture

Uploaded the cut from Indoril-Thirr Section. Needs testing but looks good.
Dialogue was broken before the cut so it's still broken, and will need to be fixed by pasting dialogue from the older section from before it broke. Cleaning that won't be hard; the entries that need to be removed will be exactly all those without an Actor or Cell condition.
no: only the topic "backgrounds" seems broken fixed

Merchant voices, some could be useful for the swindlers:


Vhul, Brewers' Hall
Witch's Cave

Guarskin banners: right, the

Gnomey's picture

Guarskin banners: right, the guarskins need to be replaced with a proper Vhul banner; I don't think we have one yet.
Bleeding houses: I see your point on the bleeding buildings; I'll see what I can do there.
Stairs: same here, I can try some stuff out, but I'm not sure if I'll find a better alternative.
Other stairs: these, conversely, seem really easy to fix.
ex_vivec_w_e_01 : I don't really see what you're talking about on this one; could you elaborate/post a screenshot?
Tree: huh, I could swear I'd already fixed the tree's rotation. But either way, this is an easy fix.
Stair archway: hm, I'll see what I can do with this one. Really, I just want an arch here.
T_De_SetVeloth_X_Stairs_01: I can probably find a better alternative here.
Rocks: they're there to hide a texture seam, but I'll widen the space as much as possible.
Riltse: easy fix
Candles: Ginur Dolvi is a very bad drunk, the house isn't abandoned. I can switch out the candles with unlit equivalents, though.
Hetman: hm, actually, it's the other way around: in Gnisis, the hetman's house is called "Gnisis, Abelmawia Hut" and the NPC "Hetman Abelmawia". As the village hetman will have a more prominent role in Indoril lands, it might be worth considering having a more explicit cell name, but it's probably fine to keep to Bethesda's precedent here for consistency; the hetman is chosen by the village from among their numbers, and I think finding out who the hetman is by asking about 'someone in particular' or poking around the village could potentially add to the small town flavour Velothi villages should strive for.
Onvos: he's the focus of the Cleansing of the Temple quest, but that said, there's generally nothing wrong with merchants in temple enclosures; Gnisis again provides the example. The priest in that quest may rather be concerned with the Syvvit Tong's dubious reputation, the merchant being a member of the tong.
Imeni: hah, old dialogue from when the 'Vhul, Bakers' Hall' used to be a bakery in Othrensis, I think. Good catch. Also with the AI wander package.

Another problem inherited from dirty dialogue: fixed


Focusing on the Dondril

Gnomey's picture

Focusing on the Dondril comments:

urinals: I can try stuff out, but frankly don't care too much about what they look like. cheeky
steps: I can raise them, sure.
gracelessly bleeding steps: I'm a great fan of graceful bleeding.
palisade: would be nice to see, I'm not eager to do this myself, especially as I'm still in the 'kill the palisade' camp. Edit: to clarify, I'm not saying that the palisade should be removed anymore, as as far as I'm concerned the decision has already been made to keep it, but I'd rather leave the palisade to folks enthusiastic about the idea.
rock texture: yup, part of my ongoing rock rework is fixing old Vertex shading and other such issues that can be seen here.

As far as the palette is concerned, the main problem is that the final AT assets were tossed together fairly at random from whatever seemed as though it mgiht fit; some were designed for the region, others not so much. I intend to make things more harmonious, assuming nobody else does, but this pertains more to Tamriel_Data rather than the landmass, and so I see it as lower priority; while it would be much preferable to have the region assets look polished in time for the March release, they can also be fixed later in the worst case without editing TR_Mainland. They are not a bottleneck like the other stuff.

The land texture issue is a

Claimed and dropped for 2017

Claimed and dropped for 2017-12-28:

  • Remove the center structure of Dondril, the one with 1 merchant and 4 stalls
  • Windows are no longer urinals (int & ext)
  • Moved the smith next to the Craftmer's Hall, moved another hut around to make space
  • Gave Craftmer's Hall and hetman's house final names

And again. Found the two

And again.

  • Found the two missing Felms Ithul interiors, and the corresponding NPCs and remerged them.
  • Dondril stairs raised.
  • Found out the fate of the Under Nest Inn - it was actually scrapped and replaced with the Craftmer's Hall and the Hetman's house. No action taken yet, might want to salvage that interior.

Went on a detailing rampage of the seam pictured below. Killed some of the fern assets that are no longer used in Aanthirin, replaced the WG cliffs with AI rocks to look like the surrounding area, and generally improved the detailing around the area.

Grabbing the file to do a bit

Grabbing the file to do a bit of work. I don't think I'll get much done today, but want to get back into the swing of things. Stuff I'm planning to work on:

-perhaps add NPCs to the velk camp and add the camp interior
-sort out NPCs and dialogue in Felms Ithul
-do further detailing work in Vhul, Felms Ithul
-break up some of the cobbled-together rock cliffs and bad vertex shading work
-fix issues rot found

- I aligned two of the buildings for what it's worth, that was a quick tweak. Beyond that, looking bad is subjective, and there's no reason the construction wouldn't be plausible I can think of.

Made some additional fixes:
-removed a bit of grass that was floating high, high above the pond south of Dondril
-added a few strewn objects to Vhul in the space created by moving back the building next to the tradehouse, and fixed the vertex shading

Dropping. Vhul dialogue

  • Vhul dialogue merged after editing it a bit
  • Felms Ithul edited a bit (palisade)
  • Dondril dialogue merged (and palisade replaced), further edits are necessary

Checked out so Jani can fix

Checked out so Jani can fix the Vhul dialogue triggers.

Also changed:

  • Under Nest Inn dialogue merged (thanks Mort)
  • Replace Id Vano's scripts with ones that simply disable everything.

Temple Domes

I'd like to grab this for a bit to fix as many of the Temple Dome placement issues as possible.

Sure, go ahead. As senior dev

Sure, go ahead.
As senior dev, you should be able to claim it yourself by editing the node and if it isn't checked out by someone else it's fair game.

Oh OK, sweet, I didn't know that I had these rights now laugh

Anyways, dropping the file again and here's the changelog:

  • Placement of all Temple Domes is improved
  • Shroomtables use many more different variants
  • TR_m3-758 renamed Nebulud and NPCed
  • Fixed the path grid in Dondril; NPCs kept getting stuck in some places
  • Fixed ownership inside the Dondril Craftmer's Hall
  • Dondril Hetman looks older and has his unique items in his inventory
  • Dondril smith has more items for sale

I just did a real quick update fixing some shrooms that I missed the first time around.
Edit: And again, plus I've added a hunter north-west of Dondril.

Claiming the file for the day to add three exteriors for new dungeon claims, relink a shack interior and maybe take care of one or two other things listed out above.

Dropped the file. Added the

Dropped the file. Added the three entrances (the Daedric ruin ended up less flattened than I'd planned), with roads and pathgrids as applicable, fixed some nearby vertex shading, re-linked the shack, fixed one or two other minor errors.
Screenshots and tidier documentation will have to wait for tomorrow.

I've updated the three claim

Gnomey's picture

I've updated the three claim descriptions with more precise coordinates, but neglected to take a lot of screenshots. Ikinammassu's exterior will need a slight edit to make the pathgrid work properly; there's one place where a bit of debris is in the way of the pathgrid, and while the angry kwama forager chasing my character could clear it the angry guar could not.


Ragox's picture

Dropping a new version with the following changes:

The two new caves are merged and fully done (pathgrid, NPCs, ownership etc.), some unique dialogue could still be added for the egg miners though. I also slightly moved the cave entry for the new natural cave (to allow it to be a bit more spacious).

v16 uploaded: Dialogue fixed

v16 uploaded:

  • Dialogue fixed
