If I'm not mistaken, we will need textures and body/head meshes for the Maormer in Khenarthi's Roost and (I think) southwest Elsweyr. Also, I think Senche-Tigers (basically large tigers, similar in behavior to Guars) are common enough that they may be needed right away.

Added maormer to the list, on the top. They're done.

In addition to senche-tigers and other fauna common in elsweyr, Khenarthi's roost is also host to sandcrabs, harpies, giant snakes, alit, and possibly black boars (which are common in elsweyr, and I have already made a model for them, but I'm working on the animations.)

The senche, and senche-tigers can be created by altering the bloodmoon wolf/bear models and textures I believe. Their animations would fit.

Quick question: how are we divvying up land per person? I'd hate to be working on some cells only to find that you or anyone else has already done that exact section of coastline. Should we draw up a map? (Ooh, I love maps, I can do that if you want)

Well I think we can use the ESO map. When we get around to creating places, we're gonna upload a color map or something, different colors representing different developers. Of course multiple people can work on the same area, and keep adding to them once others are done.

Also we have to do a progress thread , so we know what other people have done, and end up with a beautiful, balanced world.

I think one of the first things we need to address is if we'll be using any modder's resources/ mod permissions for assets. If so, we might do well to search a few of these out to save time. Morrowind has so many resource packs, and so few modders are willing to work with them. I think it would be wise to at least consider.

Also, what is the situation on the different forms of Khajiit? I don't see many of them listed. (eg Dagi and Cathay) Also, I think a dro-m'athra (from ESO) enemy would be very simple to implement. It would just be a khajiit with dark, ghost effects. Plus they'd make an interesting enemy for a potential Temple questline.

We are using other modders' resources. Mainly resources from the mod project titled "Project Outreach", and we have permission to use them, as it seems like the project is now dead. We are also going to be using resource packs created by a modder named Lougian, and he is already a part of our team, so no problems there.

I have added Khajiit breeds to the list, and I'm working on some of them right now. We already have Alfiq done.

Well, there are a plethora of other modders resources on MMH. Stuff that we may not have enough of yet, like tapestries and tons of flora. These things were created for us to use, so I vote we take advantage of as many as we can. Of course, I don't know what assets we have yet from PO. Can you message me a link to see what we have so far? That way I'll have a better idea of what we need still. We definitely need more than one type of palm tree, for example.

I have sent you an e-mail with a link to download all of the PO resources. A lot of stuff.

Alright, so I checked out the PO files. Tons of great stuff there. This may be a problem with the files you sent me, but one of the subfolders' data wasn't implemented into the CS. Specifically the temple and khajiit bulding sets. I took the liberty of implementing them into my esp. (If you'd like I can get you that.) Here are my overall thoughts of what we're lacking.

Interiors for the Senchal building set
Interiors for the Khajiit building set
Interiors for the temple building set
Unique furniture and containers. These can be resourced from MMH.

New types of tapestries and rugs that will set interiors apart. These can be resourced from MMH.
More trees. I feel perhaps a green palm and another tree for a tropical jungle climate subregion would be enough. These can resourced from MMH and the green palms can be reskinned red palms.

New armor. We need at least one new armor set to make the Mistral guards appear unique.
New weapons. Would be ideal, but aren't 100% necessary.
New musics maybe?

Oh, and I'd suggest using the Senchal set for plantations, as oppossed to using vanilla morowind plantation stuff. The plantations in Morrowind look like Hlaalu buildings, IMO.

EDIT: Some of this stuff may be covered by our other members' resources. If you could send me those I could merge all of our assets into a single esp for ease of use.

Can we see a picture of the Maormer race you created Nerevar?

Good points TuMadreEsMiCorazon.

And ImpassiveAtom, sorry, I've been really busy irl lately, but I will upload pictures and maybe the files for all of you to see/use, soon enough.
They're basically just re-skinned altmer.
