Object mechanic for item wall mounting, bookshelf book plasing and other item placement on objects

Post by Zoran » 07 Mar 2019, 10:17

First of all I would like to say that this suggestion is of course intended for 1.0+ versions. This is a possible future future. I would like to see a future implemented that enables moders to make mods that can have wallmounded objects for weapons, shields and other items, easy placeable book on a shelf, easy placeable items on various surface objects in game, mannequins for armor storage est. You know what I am talking about, same things that Skyrim has for player houses. It’s best that it should be a object property that moders can use to make some in game objects holders for items. This would be great for player house mods.

I don't think this would be too difficult to do, but of course NIF models that are similar to Skyrim weapon racks, etc, would be required. To avoid purchasing Skyrim just to have weapon display, someone will have to create said models from Morrowind assets.

I think these are driven by scripts so someone will have to write them as well. But I guess there would be many talented modders who can create such models and scripts, anyhow.

EDIT: upon reflection I may have spoken too soon. There will need to be a way to save the placed item info - which will probably make the save file incompatible. There's bound to be other complications as well.

It will surely be more complicated than we, the common folk, think it will. I posted this to start the idea, and hopefully one day it will be in the game. :)

Could you maybe hack it together right now by having a non-moving actor shaped like a weapon rack and getting them to wield the weapon? That's how Skyrim's mannequins work, so it's not impossible that it's how the regular weapon racks work, too.
