Stage is Set

I’ve finished Camp Varglya’s exterior, its interior cell (the Commander’s tent) and also NavMeshed it all. Took me one day. Next up is adding the Stormcloak soldiers manning the camp. That’s going to be fun!

The Stormcloak Version

I’ve also published a Stormcloak version of Camp Argentum. This version of the .esp, found in the Optional Files, will make the Imperial camp inhabitants aggressive towards the player. It’s meant for Stormcloak gameplay, but is also suitable for others who want to fight the Legion. They’re also set to respawn. Furthermore, I updated the camp design a bit; added fires burning, smoke and threw the statics around a bit to make it all look more like a battlefield, and it looks epic indeed.

Some Screenies from Argentum

Here are some screenshots from my Camp Argentum.

The Legion Soldiers

I now have thirteen soldiers manning the camp. I’ve got everything from officers and regular soldiers, a signifer (Roman standard bearer) to a Battlemage, an archer, an Orc smith and so on. They all have AI packages, which includes a “roll call” at 5 in the morning when they all line up in the middle of the camp. They are all recruitable as followers. Some of them might look similar, which soldiers are supposed to do in their uniforms, but they all have an individual file with background stories I’ve written (readable in the Centurion’s Tent file cabinet). The camp is just a small mod, but is now so polished and well-working that I’ll release it on the Nexus this weekend. Bloody good for roleplaying an Imperial soldier or officer. Stay tuned.

Camp Argentum

Here’s a little thing I’m working on. My Imperial Legion officer character didn’t have a suitable home, so I made him Camp Argentum, where he also gathers his special legion cohort. I don’t know if I’ll ever release this one, since it’s very specific for my character, but it’s fun to create. I’ve been using Meo’s tents. Just like back in the good old days. It’s loosely based on real Roman camp designs.
