The urban Odai river overhaul

By MwGek

About the mod
The Odai river running through Balmora will never be the same again. This mod turns the Odai waterfront into a proper urban canal. The dual layered waterfront adds extra verticality. The new waterfront connects to an extensive sewer network, connecting many of the Balmora interiors to the waterfront and street level drains. It also adds a more lively setting with market stalls, cargo cranes and a gondola service. All new npc's have some small unique dialogue and recieved a brand new home near the water.

• New waterfront meshes in Hlaalu style to create a better Odai Canal experience.
• New sewer meshes and poor canal home meshes in Hlaalu style.
• New wooden ladders, displays and an open chest in the poor wooden style for cluttering.
• Big changes to the Balmora exterior near the Odai river, including three new outdoor vendors.
• Adds sewer drains in the Balmora exterior cells to access the sewer system.
• 2 extensive sewer systems under the city on the eastern en western side of the Odai river.
• Added trapdoors to the sewer system in various existing interiors across Balmora.
• 9 new interiors for new and vanilla NPCs.
• 11 new NPCs placed across the new content.
• Some unique dialogue greetings added to the new NPCs.
• Gondola service.
