The mod is updated to Beta Version 09 as of now. This update brags with the usual amount of huge changes and additions to the project!

What's new in 09?


It's time to update Dibella's Watch again. This time, a lot of the work has been concentrated around good-old landscape building, and this update is probably the largest landscape update to date. The fact is, that a lot of that work has been done doing the small stuff, like placing rocks and trees and other things that the casual player perhaps won't notice. This work is really important, since this mod lives on its landscape and beauty.

That's all fine and well, but I also wanted to include things that the player WILL notice. Therefore, I've been expanding the land with more buildings and hamlets in the old areas, while I've built entire new settlements in the western areas of the continent. There is now an entirely new small town out west which is built with new meshes as well (created by Eternal Darkness for his DUNEIII package)! This town also holds a proper, newly written quest to set the wild west type of atmosphere I want to achieve there. I can take that setting very far still and it has potential.

The Woodlanders have received two new camps filled with aggressive warriors. Those two camps are probably thetwo most beautiful bandit camps I've made. One of those camps also border on the only Ayeleid ruins on the entire island. Those ruins will hold a secret in the future, but for now, you can only see their imposing exteriors. The whole of the continent has now been properly textured with land texture as well; grass and such, although there's some work to do with cluttering still.

- Created the "Slave Trader's Base" dungeon outside Al Raj, tied to the quest.

Thanks. I'm closing in on the full Version One Point O, since work is going faster than I thought, actually. I have plenty of time before Skyrim.

LOL That's pretty much why I set my deadline. I remember when I started playing both Morrowind and Oblivion. I was locked away for weeks. Actually, old Daggerfall had the exact same effect on me too, now that I remember. so bring on Skyrim! I've already prepared a week off from work! ;)

Hey thanks. Most appreciated. The link leads me to a "Page Not Found" though. I found the article on ModSentry, but I wasn't able to link it here myself, for some reason.
