I’m working on a project in coldharbour... there is a very large structure in the centre but it will leave a lot of barren space that’s visible from the structure and I need to fill it. I will be using various huge trees, the sithis statue and Molag Bol statue but I drawing a blank on what other huge furnishings I could use to fill the space. The bigger the better as I’ll need to conserve as many slots as possible.

And and all suggestions would be welcome...

As requested here’s the view from the structure to get an idea of the space and scale I need to fill in. Catch show the structure yet... it’s a secret.

    well, i just filled it with eerie water using Essential Housing Tools. Too many big statues and things with no theme or purpose ends up looking confused, in my opinion. vlyb4swds5yp.png Unless you are making a garden or something like a museum i'd avoid doing it that way, just plonking them out there.

    I think some of the fabricant trees are quite big and then there's stuff like the clockwork orrery that are quite big. Some of the statues like the gigantic sithis one fill a lot of space. I don't know if you like hedges, maybe wrong look for coldharbour, but they make an area look filled.

    There is a garden furniture pack that has lots if hedges and shrubs. Although Healthy Green Plants do not always go well with Coldharbor. So you could use the dead trees and branches and such from the Witch events.
    The Mundus Stones could be a good alternative.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    If you haven't already utilised the white trees and coldharbour shards / fans (those spiky rocks) you could possibly create a circle of rock & trees around the central structure.
    I'd probably add the little glow-plants also to make it more interesting.

    When I want to close off areas, I use the underneath of the wide Alinor stairs as a rock face, I cover it with ivy and then use the ancient shade tree because it offers large dense coverage

    I used it here go block off the majority of Psijic Villa with the lease amount of items I could..

    Great feed back, the issue I have is that I’ve built a giant structure across 3 levels (170 slots) and I now have an awesome house with great view of a completely barren coldharbour 🤣

    The orcish gazebo is large and I think of a style which would fit.

    A few different ideas, as I’m not sure what theme the actual building is :)

    Graveyard:
    Gravestones. Wagon of Death. Corpse of Mayhem.
    Maybe some statues, like the Gravewatcher, Statue of Shadows, The Mother, Gargoyles etc.

    Torture Chamber:
    Iron Cross. Iron Maiden. Animal Cages.

    Alliance War:
    Various sieges and oils etc. from the Alliance Points vendor + Camp fires + Tents.

    Stone Henge:

    Create a replica Stone Henge using multiple Standing Slabs.
    Maybe add a sacrificial altar and some ritual candles to make it look like there’s a sacrifice being made.

    Boneyard:
    Use several of the in-game Bones / Skeletons to make a Boneyard, as if some giant creatures met their end in your house. The Woodelf tent, frame works quite well as a convincing skeleton ribcage.

    Little Village:
    Create a little village using various tents and gazebos.

    Molag Bal:
    Use the Final Threat statue of Molag Bal, you could maybe add glowing items to make his eyes come ‘alive’. Use Ukaezi’s Ward + the cowering statues around him.

    Ruins:
    Use Alinor archways, pillars and posts, place them upright and also fallen to create the illusion of an old ruins. Maybe cover it with ivy.

    More of the same:
    Buy more of the white trees + shards from the vendor in The Hollow City

    @Zypheran I did finish it but had to pull the centre structure down as it wasn’t good enough for a guild hall, ironically the only thing I kept was the gardens decorated with the advice I got in the thread 😊

    I have always loved how you build things with such detail, and perfection. As a builder who strives to make my designs look like vanilla builds, I love your work.
    Would you do a video tour?
