Excellent work, Tweek! I especially like the view of the City Proper.

I hope you choose to add to it sometime in the future, but it's great as is.

Thanks, glad you liked it.

I was hoping to have the music loop, I wanted it to play, wait a minute or 2 and then loop again as having it loop right after was rather jarring.

To those who felt the music fits, it should do it's one of Tim Larkin's pieces ;)

In the future a new build will be released (hopefully with a working Ahry'ahn Book) and I can fix the music looping and some other issues that need tinkering with.

But who is that white dude with pipe under the house? The ghost of Mr Sherlock Holmes?

That is a rather interesting apparition. Hmmmm, with that Linking book and tool pouch on his belt I wonder just who it might possibly be. Hey is it possible that Watson or Phil might just be coming back to haunt us???

You could try adding 20 seconds of silence to the end of the music file and just have it loop continuously.

I know you're not supposed to bump old threads, but I'd like to keep all information regarding Fehnir's House release and updates to this designated thread if possible.

During the short spats of free time I have I've been working on the new version of Fehnir's House. At the moment I'm debating whether to release an interim version that has all the updates I've been working on but without access to Lehns and Ahryahn. Lehns is in phase 1 - 2 at the moment and Ahryahn is back in Phase 1 after I accidentally saved over the file and the backup which resulted in me losing everything I had done (clever right?).

As you may know, the initial version of Fehnir's House was created in a short amount of time for the D'ni Location Contest. As a result it wasn't really as polished as it could have been (and at the time I was rather proud of what I have built). Upon looking back at screenshots of the old place I realized how (in my opinion) terrible it looked. So version 2 sees a lot of changes and improvements.

The room itself has been scaled up slightly, just to make it a bit more breathable and I have added a second room you can get to if you can figure it out. Most of the textures have been updated and finalized (new painting on the wall to replace that horrible D'ni triptych) and new lighting has been added (via lightmaps and vertex painting). I have re-written some of the documentation in the room as well to try and iron out some errors (truth be told I suck at writing) and to remove contradictions in the canon I had noticed. I've also added some backdrop stuff to the D'ni city and the Great Zero beam to make it more believable.

I'm currently working on having the music play when you activate the Cannen instead of having it looping constantly. I've also added a bunch of artifacts and what not to the second room and there will be more documentation in there as well. I know that a lot of folks have said there isn't much to do in Fehnir's House and that is true but at the same time it is by design. The room (and possibly the house if I ever decide to finish building out the rest of the building) is mainly a story dump and a hub to access Lehns and Ahryahn which will have more interactive elements and further flesh out the lore surrounding Fehnir and his family.

And here are some screenshots for you of the current version. There are still things to iron out like adding glare to the lamps and fixing the spot lamp glare above the Ahryahn book.

Those are excellent improvements! It looks great. :)

I think it would be good to update the existing Fehnir House, even if the accompanying Ages are not yet ready. Just make the books inaccessible (in a locked case, perhaps, or entirely unplaced) for now.
