Ok, new thread here.

CONFIRMED ROOMS;

Different rooms for each 'category' of books

'Front' office

Offices for most people in this

A central staicase


POSSIBLE ROOMS;

A Atrium/greenhouse thing

Private reading rooms for skillbooks

Living quarters, dining halls, and other misc. living areas.

LOCATION

To yet be determined, although its getting pretty polarized for either lost in the forests, or in the middle of the city.

OTHER INFO ABOUT THE LIBRARY

We will be adding at least one secret area, although it's location and nature might only be privvy to a few.

Might have more areas than that.

Anything I missed, just post.



Do not make another thread about anything that would be put in the library. If you have an idea please post it in here.

Thanks
-Jona

I am definitely all for a "hidden in middle of city" approach. the whole "in the forest" doesnt seem as magical or....special, There are already plenty of things lost in the forest, it seems less unique to put it there. I doubt there wil be many other hidden establishments in cities, so this adds to the unique-ness of putting it there.

umm....no, although that would be immensly cool, awsome, and otherwise da bomb... biggrin.gif ...no, i dont think so how about having it's sercet entracne inside or under a guards tower or fort. but i guess with npcs walking through doors you would need a way of keeping them out of the way huh? mabye you could do what Khann sugested but put a smaller moon closer the the city and not in outer space...

Whoa.... We already have in the Imperial Palace: The Imperial Chambers, secret passageways, dungeons, an ancient Elven city... do you seriously think we can cram any more secret stuff into it? :shocked:

Mm.... how about a pocket dimension? Accessible through a book, perhaps? (A bit banal, I know).

Could we have a room just for the Hitchhiker's Guide to Nirn? It's going to be BIG. Quite big. Could my office double as the portal to Oblivion?

Or maybe the place is in a alternate demension (outside the map) that is made to look like it is a sphere with grass all over it, that would be awsome

My vote goes for the library being outside.

Please post no more "I think it should be here and this is why" unless you just say in one sentence, "I think it should be here." No more than that. We don't need any fight over where it should go.

Since we have narrowed the question of where the library should be we need to start thinking about how the library should look in those two places. We have practicly drained the life out of all the possiblitys that the library can be if it were cramped in the city. We need to talk about ow the library should look if it were outside in a forest.

Should there be more than one building?

Should there be any parks or rest area that are a fair distance away from the library?

Should there be any paths that wind throught the woods just for people to walk on and enjoy the scenery?

Since the library would be outside we would have more room right? So could rooms in the library be bigger? We could have larger rooms for Guide to Nirn, the reading area, the records and editor rooms.

Get the idea?

I agree with you on that one. An ancient secret library doesn't make much sense in the middle of the wilderness. Having it hidden away in a city is much better, maybe if there was something similar to the Vivec canals it could go there.

No. Sorta like walking along a path and seeing a building in a small clearing surrounded by woods.

The library is supposed to be secret, right? If it is located in the forest/rural area, I would think it would have to be disguised. Even in a very remote area, a large building would be noticed eventually, and the Empire's representatives would come check it out. It could either be underground or magically warded so as to be invisible or resemble something else (cottage, etc.). It could resemble a small building, and yet still be large inside, correct (I've never actually created a mod, so I don't know all the restrictions).

If it is located in a city, then it would be much easier to hide a large building. It could be in the basement/catacombs of another building, or could be it's own building with some sort of front (like a Shriner's club, or the Tamriel equivalent). Only those who know the secret handshake would be allowed in, or maybe there is a public area, but you have to be a member to get into the actual library rooms. (Not sure how/if this is possible to implement).

My apologies if these are old ideas already discussed.

executive decision on the part of the big boss guy (me biggrin.gif )

It'll be in the city, as I don't think it'll be as difficult to occupy one of the alleyways there are sure to be.

The office that acts as our front (cover) and our personal offices will be known as, *irony alert*, 'The Front Office' a small printing/bookbinding shop. Two story, so no worries as to it 'looking' too big.

here are MW CS shots of The Front Office.

Unless someone has a very convincing and overwhelmingly relevant argument against this (as in a benevolent Dictator's Veto), I think we will go with this.

Doesn't look bad for a rough plan, although the only thing that strikes me immediately is that Troika's scretary won't be able to get out from behind that desk kvleft.gif (and hence starve).

Don't be silly, Troika's secretary is an acrobatic monkey, known as Paul.
