About Tel Aryon

Tel Aryon, and the tileset it’s built with, represents my first ever foray into 3D modelling, texturing and decent Oblivion modding. Its progenitor, Tel Aryon 1.2 east of Cheydinhal, was built with standard Oblivion assets, and wasn’t bad considering, but I was massively vexed by the limitations of using 10x sized mushrooms handplaced to make entire rooms (Tel Aryon 1.2 contained over 1500 hand placed mushrooms!) The majority of the assets in this project are made with open source software.

Credit where it’s due:

All models and some textures (the worse-looking ones) by me, JonSatriani

High-quality, true-to-original Telvanni textures by Plangkye from his Telvanni Texture Replacer for Morrowind

The new interior floortile texture was provided by kalikut

Franchement, je ne trouve pas de mots pour désigner ce travail magnifique ! C’est une pure merveille ! Incroyable ! Magnifique !
Bon, je vais tenter de m’exprimer en anglais :
It’s very beautiful ! Good work ! (sorry, I can’t speak english very well ! 😉 )
