I'll take this over for a few days to clutter up the merchant stalls if nobody objects.

Sure. Just keep in mind the place is already a big fps hog, so be conservative in your details (gnisis-style stalls should be perfect, I think)

Other small changes besides the market stalls: Added signage for the Fighters and Mages Guildhalls, and banners to the main gate.

EDIT: if y'all are cool I'll keep working on this, I want to add the rest of the shop signs, some lanterns/lights, and maybe a couple of banners for a start.

EDIT II: Oh shit there's a lot more merchant stalls than I realized. Nevermind, consider this more of a WIP lol.

Also I'm decluttering some of the other stalls a little bit - some of them have like 20+ items per merchant which seems excessive. The silverware by the clothier and alchemist is a good example, they have like 6 cups, probably close to 10 bowls, 6 or so candelabras, and 4 vases (going off memory here), plus several silverware sets. For sake of performance I'm cutting that number down.

Update on the Anvil situation: given that the city is still very large and unwieldy, I would like to propose the following edits to further cut down on superfluous interiors. Basically, these places have been selected for removal if a. it does not affect he density of the city as a whole, and b. if their interiors prove to be completely useless (i.e. we already have tons of warehouses and apartment blocks, even more are not necessary.

In addition, these edits would do away with the large villa east of Anvil, which has no real purpose in the current plans and is kind of lost over there, and will try to coalesce several of the slum homes into larger, labyrinthine flophouses which will be easier to make and more interesting than five more or less samey apartment blocks.

If nobody objects, I would like to implement these plans once Saint_Jiub has uploaded his last clutter edits.

Those look like reasonable changes. I would go ahead with all of them.

Alright folks, here's the updated Anvil file. In addition to the changes listed above, I've also put some work into locations in the wilderness north of Anvil:
  • Added the Lady Doomstone just north of the Navy port.
  • Added a Sidri-Ashak Runestone close to where Oblivion had one, on a crossroads next to Lindasael.
  • Finished rough exterior shell for the Olomachus Fort ruin
  • Finished rough exterior shell for the Brinemoth Fort ruin
  • Finished Brinemoth Lighthouse
A more up-to-date city plan:

Town planning for Anvil has not really kept up with all of the recent changes, so I will post another topic to discuss the location assignment and character development for Anvil shortly.

Update: added windows and door to no. 35 - Harbormaster's Office, as well as some missing doors on the castle.

I think that the shape of Anvil has been pretty much finalized with these last few updates. Someone should do another pass over the exterior for more details and stuff, but apart from that I think it would be fine to open up all interiors in the city.

Claimed for a little while to align this with the latest data update.

EDIT: I'll have a look at those betacomments too while I'm at it.

Updated to Data 05. Also improved on the Navy dockyard and HQ, and added shells for the locations north of Anvil (along with a lot of minor improvements and bugfixes).

Claiming again for a second. Going to see if the warehouse exteriors can be adjusted a bit.

Plantation -119,-53: Much of the Spikerice are floating, looking closely at the model not all of the leaves end at the same place, so whoever fixes it, watch out for that.

Same cell, east of plantation: cave entrance missing door.

Same cell, south of plantation: Talos statue missing platform to stand on.

Update. I'm dropping this claim, too much other stuff to do.

Next person to pick this up should keep in mind the following:
  • The new Dibellan temple needs to be implemented
  • Gardens of the wealthy manors in the south part of town need a major upgrade
  • I've cluttered up some of the back alley plots between the houses and the city wall - IMO it makes little sense for these to be filled with random rocks and grasses. These places are great for workshops, small personal gardens, small sheds, maybe a goat pen or something.
  • Docks still need a major cluttering pass.
  • I've started implementing the new streetlights around the main gate, these should also be added to other (wealthy) parts of town. Perhaps only implement them on the main road through the slums, or use torches as lighting there (to emphasize the class difference).
  • Morihaus temple has been replaced.
  • The clutter in the marina (walled wealthy harbor) could be a bit better - IMO it feels a bit too much like a modern tourist port. We need to make a decision on which market stalls to use: the ones we have now are a bit too clean and straightforward, they give me a renfair vibe. We could replace them entirely with the more weathered, "realistic" looking merchant tents/stalls added for HR (with a different wood texture and imperial-specific canvas)

Dropping

1. City terrain smoothed and matched to walkable static foundations level
2. The City entry area cleared from huge rocks
3. Containers all around the city except Upper Class area
4. Docks area cluttered
5. Junk sunk in a sea floor
6. Trial with gardens
7. Marina Market tents replaced and cluttered
8. Big flower pots used to cover issues between stairs, terrain and foundations
9. Some changes to Middle Class Market
10. Added meshes for Painter's guild exterior representation near the building.

Suggestions for next person picking up this file:

Upper Class area persist untouched except of several gardens I tried to make and wall fence leading to a castle - feel free to change it.
I focused on lighting up the docs, some places around a city should have more lamps.
City entry area still to adjust to a better looking place.
The new Dibellan temple needs to be implemented still.
