Mini Arkthzand Caverns in the Erstwhile Sanctuary

I really love the Arkthzand Caverns part of Blackreach, and remember getting goosebumps when first seeing the library building. I think it's such a beautifully designed zone and I wanted to recreate my own mini version of it in the Erswhile Sanctuary, because the landscape is quite similar. I could have used some more slots, but I liked the end result, I tried to make it look like there were still excavation works going on, and hence unfinished. Here is a video tour, and some screenshots:

    This is stunningly lovely! Now, I just need to pick up my daily quest and I'll be right down there do pick up dwemer parts, OK?

    What a gorgeous transformation!!! I'm amazed by how you transformed the entirety of Erstwhile into a Dwemer cavern with those structures and appropriately-accessorized pathways! :star: A really immersive build, great job!

    Wow, I love Markarth architecture and what you have created in this housing space!

    It makes me wish I’d bought the house when it was available but I never could have imagined doing anything like this!

    Truly, ZOS should show builds like this to generate more interest in the houses when they go on sale. The sparsely decorated preview houses are so underwhelming.

    This is so true! Even if they can't do that for freshly released houses, they should totally do it for returning homes - there are so many creative builds out there, and most people won't ever see years-old house uploads or housing streams.

    Doing a 'Erstwhile Sanctuary showcase' blog post with some player build videos would whet people's appetites for that months's returning house! It would probably be more interesting that posting the 'Daedric shrine' article that features screenshots from the game world with items that aren't even available in housing.

    Thank you!!! When I thought of a house to build the caverns a while ago, the Sanctuary came to mind, but I didn't have it back then, so imagine my enthusiasm when they released recently! :)

    Thank you very much, and that's a great idea; I've seen some really transformative things players have done in houses, and it's always an inspiration of how a space can be used! :) I love the architecture in Markarth too, it was a lot of fun trying to recreate the atmosphere! I didn't have the house until they recently re-released it--I wish they made houses permanent additions to the store, so we could get them at any time.

    @Jaimeh are you on PC? I’d love to visit but since you don’t list your platform I must assume so.

    If so I cannot.

    Thank you very much! I tried to make it as similar as I could, so I'm really glad to hear this! :)
