Description

Ebon Tower Interior #1 – Curia Building (name up for debate)

A large interior.

The Curia Building is an administrative building where the secular Imperial government in Morrowind resides. It houses the provincial cabinet of ministers and their offices (8 ministers in total: one for each Great House, a minister of treasury, a minister of justice, and a minister for Temple affairs -- see this thread for details), a council chamber for the ministers which doubles as a court room, in the basement there’s a hall of records and a treasury.

To what extent am I allowed

Aeven's picture

To what extent am I allowed to use P:C assets in such a claim? I found a few things which would fit nicely and not look out of place.

Andothren has a few P;C

Andothren has a few P;C assets, you can use them, just don't use too much P;C assets.

We don't want to over-do it,

Rats's picture

We don't want to over-do it, of course, but the Ebon Tower especially is trying to be the Imperial City in miniature form.

This is *the place* to use P:C assets more than anywhere else in Morrowind.

This looks really promising.

This looks really promising. The Imperial tileset is used really interestingly here. Love the round table and the round tapestry thing you've created!

If you wanna add a special room where they keep the Treaty of the Armistice, that'd be appreciated. Since the treaty is essentially the founding document of Morrowind province, I believe it would be kept here (on lavish display even?)

This is a cool idea! It would

This is a cool idea! It would be great if we had a unique looking asset for this. My suggestion would be this is an activator which offers the player a text to read, like how we did so with historical banners in the Fane of Necrom.

Didn’t somebody make a large

Didn’t somebody make a large mural that was supposed to go in the chamber where the armistice is held? A fresco of the Tribunal kneeling in front of Tiber Septim?

I did :) It got mixed reviews

I did :) It got mixed reviews, and I haven’t got the time to tweak the colors as some people suggested.

Here’s what I’ve currently got. Would we like to use something like this?

I most certainly would! It would go nicely in that circle thing where I now have the tapestry and banner. If there is any way it could be made more circular then that would be awesome.

That would look cool. I'll see what I can do.

This has received a slight update, first in a long time. Now includes the wonderful mural by Rats, and some detailing of the main chamber. Plan on finishing what remains of the shell today and tomorrow, and finishing this Curious Curia.

Uploaded a new file. This

Uploaded a new file. This seems to be nearing completion within a few days. To view this properly, load it with Rats' two new assets loaded. These statics and book should be removed from the file once there are merged into Data.

Just letting folks know that

Rats's picture

Just letting folks know that I have this file at the moment. As per Aeven's request, I'm making a set of scripted traps in the vaults to protect the Treaty of the Armistice.

The shell needs one minor

Aeven's picture

The shell needs one minor cell. If you'd like, I'll make that and release the file for you to clutter :)

Dropped this claim, didn't

Aeven's picture

Dropped this claim, didn't end up finishing the shell of the upper floor (it's not big though), but otherwise it's not a lot of work for whoever feels like finishing this! IMO the main chamber is done, but obviously whoever ends up finishing this can still change that too!
