[WIP] C.H.E.S.T.

Alright, figured I may as well give this a more permanent home to show its progress.

This is C.H.E.S.T. ( Coffer Habitat, Enchanted, Secure, Transportable ).

It is a transportable home along the same lines as Alladin's Bottle, but based on a chest. :D It's not as large as the bottle and should feel a little more cozy, but still have a ton of storage And places to display all your hard-won trophies.

I'll post progress as it is made, but for now all I have is the basics.

The overall layout (CS shot)...

The "attic" is a custom mesh and is in it's own cell to reduce FPS issues. It's intended as the main display area for the house...

I've done a retex of a lot of the vanilla com furniture to fit with the look of the interior...

I've also made a couple new pieces. The display case (animated top) has storage bins underneath...

And a new desk...

I have also made use of my built-in bookcases and have thought about making a book sorter for the library. I plan to include my ingredient sorter, same as the bottle and I'm considering doing new containers for that too.

Hope you all enjoy watching this grow. :D
Suggestions and comments are always welcome. :D

Update time. :D

Brand new wood cooking stove.

Just getting started, but you get the idea. :D


Changed the texture as I wasn't happy with the repetitiveness of the previous one. :D

And CHEST now has a brand new wood stove to cook on. :D


This is just the static version. I plan to animate the doors at some point. :D

You were right, in game the brass looks much better, almost matches the rich set.

A little update.

Still got a ways to go but coming along nicely. :D

The main entry room with "keyhole" door

The view from the doorway

One of the "guest rooms"

Second "guest room"

The master bedroom

I know the shots are rather dark, but this is intentional. It *is* the inside of a chest, after all. :D  Still have some lighting to add, so it won't be quite as dark in the final version.

More updates to come. :D

So you can carry the Chest around on your back so to speak? Is there a spell that shrinks you down so you can enter it?

Sorta. :D

It's pretty much the same as my bottle. Putting the key in the lock and turning it transports you inside. It's similar to a pocket dimension or portable hole. :D
