Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.

One thing I didn't include was desirability. Items such as gardens, statues, the palace, luxury item stores, high level houses raise the desirability of a location much in the way these things worked in the Caesar series of building games. Higher level merchants will be more attracted to these areas and will be more able to ignore the larger exclusion zones generated by these areas. In short higher quality merchants can move into better areas of town without the locals complaining,

Just found this thread, looking whether cursed items had already been suggested.
Mind blown!
At least, 6 years later, some of it got implemented

I'm frankly embarrassed at most of the things I wrote in here. I'd have locked this topic myself if I didn't consider it mod abuse :lol: But perhaps it'll foment some ideas out there and it'll help someone! Maybe!

Yeah, that's one of the few takeaways I'd enjoy from this topic. If support for modding in new enemies comes smoothly, maybe we'll see some poison atronachs or black widows out there...

this is a fantastic list of ideas Jay!
i notice that quite a few have been implemented since you started this thread.

i was wondering whether a more simple food mod could be done to have further benefits from food and drink, but without all the other details in climate and calories mod. then you could implement the food vendor idea - would make cities very alive!

having an npc food vendor beside the airships guy would be neat. especially if the vendor sold kebabs. i don't know if this would be lore-consistent - but from where i live, kebabs are the only thing available late night onwards. so it might make sense if the food vendor after hours (even when the gates are closed), sold kebabs.. lol

also did anyone ever pursue the 'chaotic content' idea?
sounds like something fun to do even after main quest has been completed.

I could easily do it, but no one would like it. Having daedra randomly spawn around you, or getting the Plague for no reason, is something that does not appeal to anyone I know :lol:

haha!
maybe semi-chaotic content.. like pub brawls, undead attacking cities, notices to evacuate to another area..
i guess the question is should there be more challenging content at level 20 - or is it time to restart with a new character?
