|Bella Moretta (0.87) - File Description
| Description: |
Octavia Lucia paced her cabin restlessly. She'd served with honor throughout the entire Morrowind Campaign, having earned a Letter of
Distinguished Action for bravery at the Battle of Sadrith Mora. Three years of war had elevated her to the rank of Praefectus as well as a something of a legend among her Marines.
Burning questions lingered across her mind. Why was the Emperor disbanding her unit? Why was she being asked to turn in her blades and retire? Like some simpering land worm milk sop?! Pretty pink dresses and formal dances?
Humiliated by the loss of her brigade, Ovtavia commandeered the Bella Moretta, a small merchant yacht, and gathered to her those Marines with loyalties stronger to herself than to the Emperor. The remainder of her troops, making their way home on the flotilla of various warships destined for Imperial City, were given order to inform the Magistrate of her intentions. By now, the entire Palace would be burning with rumors of her betrayal.
Retirement was never an option. She would die with blood on her blades as her mother had and her father before her. Bravil was ripe. Ill defended and brimming with gold. With her armor blackened in defiance, no guard would mistake her, or her Marines, as one of their own. Not that it mattered. Born from the womb of war, they would face little opposition from the infamous Bravil ale fattened militia. Marines? No longer. The word was almost an epithet as it rolled across her tongue. Octavia's Raiders would taste blood, today. A prophecy painted in harsh crimson strokes, leaving the young former Praefectus laughing at the irony.
= Description =
This mod was very much my re-introduction to modding. After an almost two year hiatus from modding for Morrowind, I decided to get my feet wet in the same way that I had in Seyda Neen. I'd build my ship home and learn from there. This little project has ended up much larger than I had originally intended and now encompasses some 55-60MB of material.
Furnishings - Brand new bed and wardrobe. Everything else was reskinned, including the flatware. New tapestries, rugs and paintings, both reskinned and remodeled, are included. Much of the art may not be to your individual tastes, but it fit the theme that I was looking for. More than likely, I will be releasing art packs, based on user feedback, to replace those paintings with versions more suitable to individual tastes.
Armor - 2 new suits. One based off of the Imperial Watch and the other off of the Town Guard armor. One heavy, one light. Also, the caligae, or sandals, from the Arena set have been declawed and made independent.
Weapons - 2 gladius with off hand versions, 1 spatha and a reskinned and rescaled bow.
Shields - A new roman style scutum and an larger version of the Imperial Watch shield that matches the heavy armor.
Ship - The entire ship has been remodeled, piece by piece. Most of the changes and corrections will likely not be noticeable to most people. However, there were some glaring issues with the original meshes and these have, for the most part, all been corrected.
= Location =
The ship is moored at 18,0. This is a small dock, south of Imperial City and north of Bravil.

|Hey.Thats a freaking goooooooooood!!!!I Idea.Driving a bout around.Do you get to attack any other ships.Or raid other ships.And when you raided that ship you could own it.Youl get more money and by your ship some armor and upgrade it to a bigger ship and by your ship more powerful cannons.And better crewmen.And when you attack another ship you get to use ladders and ropes to board.And on the ship you have to get the atmosphere right.You and your crewmen board the ship with ladders and ropes and you kill the enemy with you cutlases.Now that would be a even greater idea |

|Um, reality check. While that sounds cool and all, if it is even possible, it would be amasingly hard. Great mod though, glad you are back to the modding community(Even though I just got into the Elder Scrolls comunity myself) |

|Yes, I know it wont be possible but it was just an freakin idea.Do you think I dont know that you cant clime on ropes.Or that a ship doesn't have cannons.Man! |

|Great mod. Only problem is that you cant move around when you maintain course. And if the "full sails" was faster, it'd be alot less boring waiting to go up a river. |
and Camper Joe, your idea started as a question. And Kevinofborg was just saying that your "idea" would be incredibly hard. No need to spazz out. And smeone is actually working on a mod like your idea, so it IS possible. I won't post the link here though.

|i would like to sail from the imperial city to the Topal Bay (strait down the nibben). Can you PLEEEAAAAASSSSSSEEEE make a mod that removes all the bridges adn landbridges so that i can? (i have kumiko manor mod which gives a kickass house in the middle of the topal bay) plus there is no way into the waterfront district. can you get rid of the rocks near the lake rumare-nibben entrance? |

|This mod is a masterpiece. truly a great achievement. i don't normally say thanks for mods but i had to in this case. although (with every mod collectively) there are some bugs (such as I'm told i can collect the ships deck with a sell price of 5G and i sometimes get stuck inside the wheel. this is a brilliant mod. and with a little more work should be something not even oblivions designers can contend with. |
finally i have a base of operations worthy of a thief pirate.
finally i can store my armor and weapons in a place that looks cool and sounds cool.
finally a mod that didn't take 5minuets to build.
finally a mod that plain and simply kicks A$$

|For a long time I wished that Oblivion included more interaction with ships. I wished that ships could be used to go from Anvil to the Waterfront District of the Imperial City and back. This was all a wish, a hope. I never thought that it would come true! Your mod is better than my wish, not only does it take me from the Waterfront District to Anvil and back but I can actually SAIL IT MYSELF!!!!!! That completely rocks! Very nice job! I only have one question to ask, after deploying the rowboat, how do I get it back on the ship? Is that possible? Once again, thank you for an awesome mod! |

|everywhere i go now its in the bella moretta with all my armour stored inside of it, but all of a sudden now i get stuck on the load screen when i try to load it into the imperial city waters from anvil waters. |
This is quite a sad moment in my oblivion days.
and to post #11, to get the jolly boat in back on the moretta what i did is i went up close to the moretta and did the stop rowing command and activate the moretta while still on the jollyboat
cheers to all
