Could I look at the scripts to get a better idea of how to use papyrus? Thanks for the mod anyhow.

Yeah, Knock yourself out. I'm playing around learning at the moment too.

Looks great.
A narnia like version would be totally awesome, you know the "wood between the worlds" that is in the first book(not made into a movie).
a neverending forest of tree's and puddles and every puddle leads somewhere in the worlds.
It could be used by a lot of modders for their different planes they build in the editor.. people could easily just take one of the puddles in the mod and use as their portal to their plane of oblivion/ their paralell world/ their weird stylistic maze of woe and so on...
it would be rad.

Looks good.
You should make it a sort of booming cultural hotspot (as this would be a groundbreaking technology, so I doubt all the citizens would merely ignore it, even if they do fear magic...)
And you should also make it so that if you use the teleport spell, an extra portal that's normally closed turns on that allows you to go back to where you teleported from, allowing you to take a break from adventuring to sleep, heal up, buy stuff, etc. then go back to the dungeon from where you left off. To balance this, I would make the spell a scroll that's sold by a merchant in the nexus for about 200 gold, and make it so that it only teleports you to the area you were in, not the exact points.

Thanks, That sound great actually! I'd love to see something like that.

Great Idea!
I'd love to incorporate some sort of 'mark and recall' system into the mod, I'm currently trying to learn the scripting at the moment, which is a bit over my head!

I can give you some help with scripting. Which kind of scripts do you need?
Edit:
Teleporting back and forth between an inbound Portal and outbound portal should be easy enough(And as a bonus NPCs might be able to follow you though the portal:)
Edit2:Do you know of any good portal meshs that work with Skyrim?

Just another idea i had(that goes very well with the narnia idea)... instead of scrolls and spells to get to the nexus it would be really cool if you had hidden portals around the world, that you only can see and use when using a spell or shout.. i believe the time slowdown shout would be great for this, like the portals are some kind of time rift that you can use to enter the nexus... the portals could be hidden in a lot of spots, like for example closets, small ponds, between two tree's situated near eachother, between pillars, in the light streaming down from a hole in a cave and so on... you get the idea :)

well you cant open the closets in skyrim... and making custom closets is maybe too much.. but there are lots of other places to use!

Hey, that would be really cool! I'm not that good with the scripts, they are well over my head! I'd love to get some sort of script system like 'Teleporting back and forth between an inbound Portal' going. I'm still currently exploring the meshes at the moment to see what sort of ones make for a good portal, because I''m not really that happy about the 'eye of magnus' ones that I used temporarily. Maybe you know some good ones?
