Okay, so I'm gonna take a wild shot and ask for something. I'm not experienced with modding. (I've given it a good try.) But I'm hoping someone out there can grant my wish.
I'm a pack rat, and I love collecting unique in-game items and decorating my home. Two of my favorite mods are NVInteriors--because it allows me to collect clutter items that are normally not able to be placed in the inventory, like TVs and fans--and Feng Shui--which allows me to place them in an endless variety of combinations in my homes.
One thing I noticed, however, was that sometimes I want to put a TV down on something or display some items on a table, but there simply isn't a suitable piece of furniture available.
So I got the idea of making furniture that could be picked up in the inventory and placed (using Feng Shui) to manuever and lock it. I searched, but couldn't find anything like this. So I tried to make my own mod. (First attempt.) I got as far as extracting a bookcase .nif from the Meshes BSA and tried to create an item with it and place it in Doc Mitchell's house. I could pick it up, but dropping it left it floating in the air. I could move it with Feng Shui but after a minute or so, it stopped being able to be picked up, moved, or even stopping me walking through it.
I'm frustrated, and am now looking to the greater mod community for something like this. I would love to see a mod that maybe had a furniture store, and you could buy bookcases, tables, file cabinets, desks, etc., and then bring them home to place. They could have increased weight for (semi-)realism and maybe a second version where everything weighs 1 for those that just wanna get the stuff home.
I think this would be a fantastic mod! And I hope there's someone out there with the skill to accomplish this. Please let me know if I'm out of my mind, too, and this is not a feasible idea. Thank you.
