Just to let you all know that I'm working on a update on this mod, but sadly the last month had been difficult for me due to personal real life stuff, so I haven't had the time or energy to spend on any Daggerfall modding.

Regarding the issue with objects spawning inside building or other places where there not suppose to. The way that Skyshards are placed, is that they are spawned way up in the sky and then moved down to the first object it finds (like terrain and buildings) and placed there. I use this method to ensure that the mod is compatible with mods that alter the terrain (like my Mountain and Hills mod). It seems though that it some instances the Skyshards are moved down before buildings (or their collision) has finished loading in. I haven't encountered this myself while working or testing the mod but this seems to definitely be the case. So, I'm hoping to find some fix for this with the next update.

Any nod to ESO is a worthy endeavor in my book. :D

Great idea, though maybe at some point we can modify it to have a bit more lore/immersion purpose to it?
Hmm, off the top of my head I'm thinking maybe when you join a Temple or something you're either required to have found a certain number of shards for that God/guild, or maybe it unlocks shards of that God/guild (they tell you how to identify them which then reveals them in a specific color-light that is unique to that God?)
Skyshards are established in The Elder Scrolls Online as shards of Aetherius itself. The Vestige (the PC) can attune themselves to its energy, and finding three of them gets you a skill point. Here's some of the dialogue from your first Skyshard encounter, for context:
...But first you must re-attune yourself to Nirn in order to regain your physical form. To do this, you will need a skyshard.
A shard of Aetherial magicka that carries the essence of Nirn. Some link them to Lorkhan, the missing god of creation. If you collect and absorb its power, it should restore your corporeal form. I will summon one of these shards for you to absorb.
Shard of Aetherius, fall upon us now and anoint us with your blessing.
There's even a handy lore article on the UESP.
