Mod Idea- See through windows

Post by Uncanny_Valley »

So, fun fact. Interiors in Daggerfall are always the same size as the exterior (excluding dungeons and castles). And in Daggerfall Unity when entering a interior, it loads that interior at the exact location as its exterior counterpart part was. So, if let's say, you don't unload the exterior when entering (for example) a tavern and replace the texture for windows to be see through, you get a little something like this.

Looks like a nice day outside :) Now the above is a bit of a quick hack but I been thinking about it for a while and it seems quite possible to do. So if anyone likes the concept and make something of it, I would be the first to download it. :D

cheers!

Wow, thta would be fantastic!

Mabe, if possible, overlay the widows with some kind of semi-transparent effect to give the impression of old glass? At the moment it might look a bit too much like just a metal mesh over openings.

I only did it completely transparent to make it clearer for the screenshoot, of course the window texture should actually look more like glass. Its only a proof of concept.
