    So... Building have been great. I am really satisfied with how the Bosmer settlement is turning out, and I am really enjoying decorating and adding detail work to it. However, while building I have also been researching the lore some more. Reading lots of wiki's, watching videos and even...

    Oh, there's more.... Been working on some Botania automations for the grove: Decided to use the this hut(the left, highest most one) since it is closest to the tree, where I plan to house my main mana storage. Initially only really intended for this hut to have my Endoflames, however I...

    Also put some work into the grove part of the Bosmer settlements: Made a guard with CustomNPCs and the MoCreatures Ent model/skin. It basically just wanders around and swats occasional monsters that get too close :P I really like them, so might make more to supplement the Bosmer guards. (Also...

    Been a bit since I posted, but have actually been playing a lot recently. I have mostly been focused on the Bosmer village recently: All the huts now have leaves on them. Still need some on smaller stuff here and there, and possibly the entire dock area(still trying to figure that out). I...

    Honestly it was not that hard to make. I just put a block/slope shape down of the green material(here its bamboo), then set the Dark wood bits to replace. Then I marked some spots around the edge so I knew the lines would match up with the stripes on the adjacent blocks. I chose 4 spots along...

    More WIP stuff from the Bosmer village: Huts for the villagers: Yay, lots more manual leaf block placement!.... Lot of C&B work to get the effect I wanted: I basically made some carpenter's style slopes with C&B and then copied it around. But was a bit more work since the "branch weave" I...

    I just love CustomNPCs and public minecraft skin sites: Needed a bit of a break, so looked up skins for Bosmer/wood elves. Haul turned out much better than I had thought :P Should be plenty to populate the Bosmer village without use the same skin too often. Also played around with a Giant...

    Some WIP picks of the Bosmer settlement: Been working on the "grove": Big ass tree, lots of leaves to have to place by hand... Using the Bosmer connection to nature to RP that they can grow/shape trees to serve as buildings: The light green "pod" trees are supposed to be housing for various...

    Just keep practising and experimenting. And google a lot for ideas to steal... ehh I mean for inspiration. :p Honestly, this Elder Scrolls thing comes rather easy, since there is so many established designs to follow. And such extensive fandom resources like Wikis. Many of the Skyrim stuff I...

    Could use some inputs and ideas for building modpack

    I an not opposed in any way to making the modpack publicly available, however I do think it needs some more tweaking and testing before I feel comfortable doing that. And atm it is not really a high priority, but maybe someday. I chose not to use Tinker's levelling on purpose. Had tried it on...

    Built a some more stuff to decorate the Skyrim village. More Riverwood style fortifications: Still think I need to build a couple more of these wooden reinforcements, for a few other entrances to the village. But not sure yet :P A small stable just inside: Market square: Still need to put...

    Charcoal kilns: Inside: Put 3 "Better With Mods" Kilns (basically an in-world furnace requiring no fuel) inside each kiln, and automated them with ExU Ender Porcupines (love these!). Normal furnace recipes for Charcoal have been removed, so it is this or Immersive Engineering Coke...

    Could use some inputs and ideas for building modpack

    For basic tool I just chose something familiar. Didnt really want to end up not having the tools I like many hours into the pack. But I will keep it in mind for the future. I think a more complex oregen would suite a tech pack better. So far this pack is not very metal focused, and it only...

    So far only Chisel & Bits. But do have Little Tiles in the pack, just need to watch some guides on how it works first. Have a bit of "new mod" overload atm :P But thanks ;)

    I thought about adding some recipe tweaks, cross mod requirements etc. to my pack to add a more of a progression. Did a little bit to balance some stuff, but otherwise I think I decided against it. I am naturally doing it just through my normal play. I had lots of fun for weeks now just with...
