[Modder Claim] Plot 26 - Autoclock
« on: August 01, 2015, 09:33:12 PM »
Not sure what's going to happen with this plot, I just want to stake my claim on it before I lose my opportunity to get in on some town action, since my dungeon shenanigans aren't going to keep me as busy as I had once thought they would.

Long time ago, way back in the year 2010, before most of you were born, I made my first mod ever. It was, predictably, a house mod. A house mod the size of Ebonheart, which crashed the game often, was very not tastefully-crafted, and generally made no sense.

I did not hold onto this beautiful disaster, as I hadn't possessed such an appreciation for my failures at the time, but, to a small extent, I can bring some of that insanity to Mod Town. Behold, the Autotower:



Expect shenanigans on the inside of this thing.

Shenanigans are always fun :D
I will enjoy this greatly.
So. You're going to Red Mountain to kill Dagoth Ur? Vivec couldn't do it, so he's elected you.
Doesn't that worry you?

Heh, just the type of thing I'd like to see! Looking great so far, Autoclock!

Looks both amazing and eccentric, I love it! :)

That is one absolutely fantastic looking airship, I like the idea of the Telvanni getting some airship love too.

Thanks. I realized that I'd never seen an airship made Telvanni-style, so I did it myself. It goes well with my tower, I think. For anyone wondering how it flies, its caretakers simply mix levitation potions in with its water supply. Which has me wondering why no ever thought of this before. I mean, the Telvanni have been growing their homes out of the ground for who knows how long now, surely one of them must have had a clumsy servant that spilled a potion onto the floor and caused it to do something magical, like turn invisible, or summon a Daedra. I'm going to have to work that into my tower somehow.

Decided to rebuild the tower, this time as a single model:



Obviously it looks more Dwemer now, but when I get further along, it'll start taking on a more hybridized appearance.

Autotower is also going to sit inside a pool of hot oil, and slowly rotate.

nice tower. I like the first one too. Will the new tower be similar to the old one?

In terms of blended architectural influence, yes. I'm not going to use the exact same pieces the rest of the way, though, because the first tower was more of test run that would be good enough were I not me. But I am me, and I always think I can do better, because, well, 99% of the time, I can. Just look at this doom train I made months ago:



Not terribly intimidating, right? Now check out the one I built right after:



Yeah.

A running theme inside Autotower is going to be "things that combine into other things", one of which being this Centurion Spider Cruiser here. Basically it just wheels itself around and looks weird.

Well, that's certainly a very...disturbing looking contraption... Fits in well with your other stuff, I think :P

I agree, fits well with your bone monster and the doom train pic you shared above.
