      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

[WIP] Summerset Isles

Recommended Posts

I still learning the CS, so progress on this will be very slow. At the stage I'm really just brainstorming ideas and looking for resources.

 

If anyone knows if the sload house resource here http://www.silgradtower.net/Websites/Thras/6708-I.htm is available anywhere that would be much appreciated as Cloud rest is supposed to have Sload architecture.

 

I am planning on using the TWMP height map of Summerset, so I already have a pre-made height map.

 

If anyone could suggest resources and has useful Lore, I would be very grateful.

 

Thanks guys :)

 

The section below of just a list of resources for my own reference.

 

Base - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/38792

 

Elven Ships - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/25228

 

Upper class Elven Furniture (requires slight retexture to remove worn look) - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/27797/?

 

Middle Class clutter (I know it's aylied) - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/20644/?

 

Elven Torch? - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/20448/?

 

Middle/Lower Class Furniture - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/41670

 

Random House Clutter - http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/41558/?

 

Edit - I haven't worked on this in over a year now, so consider this semi-abandoned.

Oh, another one tackling Summerset! It's been tried many times. Good luck!If you would like project hosting, like we're doing for Elsweyr Pellitine, Valenwood and Black Marsh, let me know.I'll ask Ibsen about that Sload resource. We have the Sload in Black Marsh, I think, but I'm not sure if we have any special housing for them. sandor might have some ideas as well.

Wow, Alinor! I'm keeping an eye on this :)

 

I really do hope that the mod does get released in a few chunks as opposed to the entire isles in one go. There was one promising Hammerfell mod - but it never got released. The only reason why Valenwood Islands has been able to be resurrected was because the alpha was released privately to the team, and Deeza managed to salvage most of the work.

Thanks, It'll probably be several months at least until I actually start creating in-game content as I want to learn to create my own tile sets first to give the cities a unique feel :)

I hope to see at least part of the isles in my playthrough :)

He says at the top of the description that it's a modders resource and is free to use, so I'd say you're good to go. Any resources you can find will really help. It takes a long time to develop a province mod, so resources are vital. :)

If anyone has any Summerset Isles conecept art and/or photos ofrealworld buildings that have an elven look, I would find that really useful.

 

I particulary need a visual reference for the crystal tower.

 

Any ideas on what layout cities should have would also be appreciated.

I asked about the Sload architecture and we don't think that ever got done. We have some pieces for Archon, but the textures are of pretty poor quality, so we're not sure you'd want those.

Well, I am trying to learn modelling/texturing myself for this, so any artwork you have would be really useful.

which other mods are there still available about the summerset isles? I can't find any except for the tamriel height map :/ Thanks!

 

on a side note, I wish all my luck to gep5, I love mods that add the other tamriel regions to the game!

There was one promising Hammerfell mod - but it never got released.

If you're referring to this Hammerfell mod then you're mistaken, because it was released. :)

 

If that isn't the mod you were thinking about then there is a mod in which I'm didn't know about.

That wasn't the one. I was talking about broad's Hammerfell. He even had snowstorms, desert cliffs and cities. But never released it as a beta :(

Yeah, team projects are easier to resurrect as there are always some upload of the resources. :(

What is (are) Summerset Isles like? I could dig through my resource collection as well and see what I find.

Well, I was going to go for a kind of LOTR style for the Elven architecture/furniture.

 

Here's some screens

Sounds good to me and the furniture looks good too since it has the design of high architecture and according to lore (based on the lore that exist in-game in Morrowind) high elven is known to be associated with such architecture.

 

The second picture has a touch of an unique design that exist in Mournhold in-game in Morrowind provided that you have the Tribunal expansion installed.

Have you tried contacting the MERP folks to see if you could use some of the stuff they made before getting shut down?

Not yet, have you got any contact/download details? Also, what did their mod contain.

 

Edit- 

 

Reading the permissions http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/29214/?

 

they seem to be guarding their files unfortunately. Could someone ask them on behalf of this project?

Not quite.  I read the permissions on Nexus and any content that's mentioned in the last section seems to be modder's resources, so no those files aren't protected by the MERP team and all you need to do is to ask the original author for permission.

Summerset is a daunting project to tackle, I attempted it in my younger and more vulnerable days  :P

 

But I wish you the best of luck. I've been digging up some resources I had for my project but couldn't find as much as I had hoped. Most of it was lost when my HDD failed. I did find this though, concept of a middle class scholars house someone (Darkstorne) put together for me, there is a model for it that Trandoshan made, if I can find it somewhere.

Here is some more concept art from thekman

I'll see what else I can find, and good luck!
