Title: [Modder Claim] Plot 27 - Princess Stomper
Post by: princess stomper on December 28, 2015, 12:08:03 PM
Plot Number (if applicable): 27

Architectural Style: Mostly Imperial

Progress (obviously you'll update this percentage as you complete your claim): 100% [complete]
Temp download (for ModTown administrators) http://www.4shared.com/zip/Yiph33gIce/Modtown_2015_Claim_27.html

A fairly conservative house mod - a manor house (Governor's Mansion mesh) that overlooks the water with a balcony and tiny garden features. I'm inspired by a comment I made on a forum post about the difficulty in making the Imperial castle-style tileset look cozy, so that's my aim - warm, lived-in and comfortable.

Welcome to the project, and the neighborhood. Wretched Fetcher and I are right across the street, so feel free to let us know if you need some saltrice, kwama eggs, or a steam-powered death machine.

Thanks! I'll look forward to inviting you over for a cup of sujamma once I'm settled in. Updating OP with proper info.

The Brothers of Brass are rather sensitive to such beverages, but they wouldn't say no to some chilled rat grease.

Design sounds good, might I suggest finding a water fountain you can stick out front? I don't think other plots have such things, so it would be a nice addition to Mod Town as well as to your plot, I think.

Holy rusted metal, Batman! That's a splendid idea!

I'll just stop adding gratuitous towers and add some of that watery stuff. :D

Nothing wrong with gratuitous towers, but then again, I suppose you only have so much room.

Hey, welcome to the project Princess Stomper, glad to have you on board! :)

Design sounds like a great idea, I personally love cozy and comfortable buildings, though I imagine the looming shadow of AutoTower with its decidedly more menacing look might be an odd contrast :P

Contrast is good, especially in a project like this. It shows that we all have our own sensibilities, and have no compunctions about exploring them. I like that.

Welcome, princess stomper! Given what we've experienced with your other house projects, I am excited to see what you come up with!

I upgraded my PC recently to play Fallout 4, and now I can't seem to take screenshots. (I think it's an MGE thing, I'm sure someone on the official forums can help me).

Anyway, that's why there's some rather shoddy looking editor screenshots just to prove I've made some progress, though I think I'm going to rework some bits so I can't be definite on exactly how far I am along.

Are you talking about making screenshots via MGE itself or the game? MGE disables the vanilla screenshot functionality - you need to set up a macro in the gui to work around that (go to the input tab, select "Launch Macro Editor", pick a key and assign "Function" and "Take screenshot to it"; you may use th printscreen key for that, but - while working - it will show you the error message).

It's looking really nice and cozy so far, Princess Stomper!

Thanks, all!

I used Fraps to take some more screenshots

I've made some progress since and my contribution is almost finished - we're down to the last few bugfixes.

Looks absolutely fantastic, Princess Stomper! :)

Thank you! I think it's now finished (just took a little run around and didn't spot anything amiss). Now just working out how to upload it or where to email it. :)

I've just stuck it here in the meantime http://www.4shared.com/zip/Yiph33gIce/Modtown_2015_Claim_27.html

NOTE: I couldn't get Overunity to work (on Windows 10) so I had to manually compile the textures and meshes. Some may be missing, but they are resources so widely used (such as Starcon5's bookshelf) that it is extremely likely that you already have them.

I love it, looks great! I can just imagine going into that home as its raining and sitting next to the cozy fireplace reading a Vvardenfell classic  ;)

I test on a primarily vanilla install so I should catch anything that's missing. Could you email me the file (melchior.dahrk@gmail.com)? I can't seem to make 4shared download the file, and I'm not going to sign in with a social media account to get it...

Ooops, sorry, was at a conference: yes, I've emailed the file over now. Hope it's all there!
