Building Redesign Project

As the Oblivion NPC Redesign Project is moving along, it becomes more and more evident how lacking some of the building-specific pages are. While NPCs living in their own houses gets the full treatment (take a look at Wumeek, S'rathad or even Drarana Thelis for examples), people who are living in named houses (with their own pages) does NOT get the treatment, and the pages looks VERY lacking. Take for example Corrick Northwode who's living at Harm's Folly. In a case like this, it's almost as sad as Corrick himself.

What I'm suggesting is, that we discuss (like GuildKnight suggested a few topics above this one) how we deal with this. It's not only the houses, it's also the inns, taverns ect ect. . maybe even later guild halls and chapels. I would suggest a description of the exterior, ditto for the interior, a listing of ALL non-clutter items found in the house (right down to those two samples of Strawberry behind the bed). Ditto for inns. And when we list the regulars, why not make another box for "visiting hours", so we can see WHEN those regulars visits the inn? I'm all for it, and willing to write or check the in-game stuff. So: Lets hear your thoughts on this subject - because it hurts my heart every time I have to link to some half-empty page instead of being allowed to describe the NPCs house in detail.

I agree we should probably add house contents 'for people who are living in named houses (with their own pages)', since as it's written now it implies that the relevant information can be found either on their house page, or there is no information at all, which is neither the case. Chapels, inns etc. be included.
As for adding 'visiting hours', it might be a bit overdone, because if you follow the link to each individual NPC you will get the relevant information (if their schedule is finished). But on the other hand, it is a lot quicker and clarifying. Wolok gro-Barok 16:28, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I like the idea of "Visiting Hours", simply because we can - it might be a bit overdone, but it would look good - especially on those empty pages. Thanks for replying, Wolok - let's hear some more opinions! Krusty 22:28, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I've already stated my opinion on the guild halls and chapels above. For inns and taverns and other houses, you don't have to ask before adding useful information. The "visiting hours" idea is a good one, but will be complicated. S'rathad is one NPC who makes like difficult by visiting different inns at different times, and I'm sure there will be others. If you can make it work, there's no reason not to do it. –rpehTCE 06:55, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
