-Removed and Redid the spiral staircase to try to fix the invisible collision box or whatever it is preventing some player from passing

A lovely video, Exploring the Naga Cavern HD 1080p, made by xBonderx (www.Bandicam.com)

Followers will get stuck sometimes and have to be lured to follow you again, just go back to them and eventually they will either follow you or bounce/teleport onto the next Navmesh tiles. This is the best I can do without totally redoing the entire underwater lay-out, I made the mod and tested it the entire time without followers because I don't use them, but for everyone that enjoys them I took the time to painstakingly Navmesh the place for you, so please understand that its not a nice even flow, and not because my Navmesh job is bad, but because I made some very tight spots and areas you have to jump up a little because I wasn't using followers and it didn't seem to matter. So you will have to provoke them into the area you want sometimes because they will not ever JUMP up, and I made a few areas where you have to jump a 1/2 a foot to get over a rock etc... and followers just will not do it, so you have to push them or run ahead of them a little ways and come back towards them, after a few times of this they usually bounce to your location or realize they can walk around the rock. I didn't make the followers AI so I cant help they are dense. =) Enjoy!

Also, I plan to add a "Back Door" entrance/exit so you can avoid the water area all together if you like, also to help prevent to many headaches from trying to make the followers , follow. =)

A cavern abode made for my Argonian but usable by any race in Skyrim.

This is my first mod! So it is probably not the most effecient or practical, but its fun and creative. I tried to make a place that felt like somewhere an Argonian would live. Hope you like to get wet!!!

Nagas Cavern is located behind a waterfall north of Rorikstead, west from Talking Stone Camp. A cave system, with plenty of water, waterfalls, plants and critters plus an ambient atmosphere, the entrance leads to an underwater ruins with exotic gardens and creatures which then opens up into a unique player home. Geared for Argonians, but usuable by anyone, it provides all the necessities. As well as plenty of storage containers and trophy display, along with lots of other surprises.

-Fast travel marker to entrance
-A bed
-A cooking pot
-A blacksmith forge
-An anvil
-A smelter
-A grindstone
-A workbench
-A tanning rack
-A wood chopping block
-Two alchemy stations
-Two enchanting stations
-35 scaled satchels
-30 scaled strong boxes
-2 safes
-3 (5 slot) weapon racks
-4 shield/dual weapon plaques
-9 "miniature" mannequins
-2 bookshelves (77 books storage total)
-removable torch sconces for prefered lighting

Also, provides a bathing area under two small waterfalls with benches and wash basin, a dining/kitchen area, a swamp cooler with clam and barnacle aquariums, a salmon fishery and hatchery and two minnow bowls complete with ornaments, a Hist tree that provides Hist Sap and Resin (both edible) and a regenerating Hist tree (plan to make this so player can pray at the tree and get a skill bonus), a poison and disease shrine, a mysterious ball lighting room (Hist Sap hallucinations, plan to make this a portal room as well) and knickknack shelves with miniatures ( still adding to this), among many other sights for the eyes. Don't forgot to look up, a lot, there are multiple skylight holes and the cavern also has day/night effects.

*Update 1. 7 @ (5/13/2012)*

*Update 1. 5 @ (5/12/2012)*

-Added a third fish bowl

@Kyndig01 : Medusa was a Gorgon, not a Naga, XD

am I the only one that thought that this would be a place where the player would either fight or encounter a few of the naga aka were snakes or half snake people like say medusa for example. just was wondering.

Constructive criticism-

The good: Huge area, everything one could need. Beautiful interior space with a lot of pretty nifty effects. One of the more unique and pretty mods I've played.

The bad: Interior is huge, but has a lot of cramped spaces and corridors to nowhere. A more open space that is easier to move around in would be nice. Also takes way too long to get to what you need.

Not a bad start at all, but could be improved. Just my two cents.

maybe an additional room with a bed would be nice. But love the rest!
