Hello everyone. I have a small problem I was hoping someone could help me out with.

I am messing around in creation kit, trying to make a small bandit camp outside of High Gate Ruins. Located near the shore.

Question is - how to create a cell in the Cell View, so that I don't have to scroll down every single time and find the world space I am working in. Cause apparently you can't duplicate cells when in Tamriel worldspace...at least I can't. 

An example is More Bandit Camps by skillest. When I opened his mod, there were separate cells with their own respective names. I am wondering how to do that aswell. 
Any help is appreciated

You rename the exterior cell, I usually go for something with AA at the beginning so they appear at the head of the list.

Just a tip for this type of situation - make a copy of a common misc item that players will always see in-game and so take no notice of.  I use one of the very common baskets that you'll see scattered all around the game by the hundreds.  Give it an easily sorted Form ID prefix like "00" or "aa" or the like and then place a single instance of your new basket in the cell you're working on.  Now that is actually placed in-game, whenever you need to load up your cell you can just find your basket in the object window, right-click and hit "use info".  The window that pops up will list the cell you're working in, double click it and the render window will load up that cell centered on where you placed your marker.


You can leave or delete this item when you're done working in a cell as needed - if you use a common item as suggested you can leave it and players will never take note of it but your handy shortcut is always around when needed for future versions or compatibility patch work.
