Thanks for the report Banshee. As Interkarma said, hiding the castle doors bottom may have been done on purpose. But if everyone think it should be fixed, I'll do it. Anyway, since this is not very noticeable (I never noticed it in 20 years), I'll leave the doors as they are for now, as I still have the following models to fix:

Dungeon secret passage (reported by pango)
Dungeon exterior bridge (Banshee)
Dungeon stair walls (Banshee)
Dungeon harrow grooves (Banshee and SlainByWoodborne)

I also noticed the following issues:

Thanks again for looking at all this, Ferital. I'm also perfectly happy for those entrance doors on Daggerfall castle to be fixed sometime.

Thank you for looking at it and for all the corrections and work you did so far on this, its awesome!!

PS: Maybe the 1st image is not a problem with UVs but a wrong texture... not really sure

Good catch! These ship texture issues are much less visible with original low resolution textures so I never noticed them. Added on my todo list!

Walls that are recessed like this have a crease that lines up with the mortar. I'm not sure it would look very good otherwise. I have, however, seen the two blocks transition the same horizontal texture from small to large, and it looks odd. Probably worth correcting, but I've only been focusing on the big errors.

Yes you're right, that's not a big issue, I will focus on more evident and critical ones at first.

The transition from one block to another using the same texture but more or less enlarged (strectched) is a common problem in game data. I've added a few models to fix on my list.

"Dungeon wall bricks following the slope of the floor instead of being horizontal"

This one is questionable and imo goes beyond the scope of this project.

Its not stretched, its not problematic. Keep it the original way. Not everything has to be uniform.

I love it the way it is.

Focus on really problematic and evidently flawed aspects of the game IMO

thanks 4 considering it

Yes that's what I said above when I agreed with Banshees similar considerations :)
