-The option to start from any visible location in any kingdom on the entire map or choose a kingdom and let the game choose a random dungeon within that kingdom.
-The option to start in any town with added option of having a pre-purchased house or ship of your choice.
-The option to choose to be a member of one of any joinable faction and will start from that faction's guild hall in a town of your choice.
Good ideas and I absolutely agree. I'd love to see a mod that did most of these things.

Btw, notice that if you combine the Alternate Starting Dungeon mod and combine it with the No Main Quest mod you'll get something that at least vaguely looks like this :D

However, this is really the tail end of another mod that has been talked about before but I'm not sure if is curretnly possible, which is to mod the character creation. All these things could be starting questions that built your background.

Alternatively, you could have these "Alternate Start" options right after character creation. Maybe have windows popup giving you these options just like other mods like Warm Ashes does when your character loads into Privateers Hold. When you choose an option it just teleports you to the location as specified or runs the join guild process-then teleports to guild hall or shows the bank window for purchasing a house/ship then teleports to a specified town, etc. Some of these things can basically already be done using console commands. Unless I'm completely missing something and overestimating DFU's abilities, it seems something like this can be put together using the current version of DFU.
I may be wrong, of course.

Don't really care that much if this is a part of the actual character creation process as I feel these are somewhat separate options having more to do with character's starting location rather than setting up character stats.
