Crystalis

Description
Crystalis is a player home added to the northern Winterhold region, north of Pilgrim's Trench.(See screenshots for exact location)


Description
___________


Crystalis' theme is more suitable for Mage type characters, but has all storage and crafting
needs for all character types.

Inside you'll find a Living area, containing basic home necessities such as a bed, two mannequins, a standard chest, and several wall displays for weapons.

A Moon Altar that grants a 25% bonus to all crafting for 5 minutes upon use.

A storage and mannequin room, containing separate storage chests for most item types, several mannequins, and a forge, workbench, smelter, tanning rack, cooking area and sharpening stone with a similar theme to the
home.

A garden, containing several sources of alchemy ingredients from various regions.

A library, containing 6 bookcases, Enchanting and Alchemy workstations, and a Moon Altar.

A Throne room, in which sitting upon the throne grants a 5% power bonus to One-handed, Two-handed, Marksman and all schools of magic for 2 hours.

And a Temple, containing access to all blessings of the divines.

You'll receive a teleport spell upon arrival that will teleport you to Crystalis from any location you can fast travel from.






I originally planned to expand upon the mod, add a questline, some indication as to why some trans-dimensional crystalline fortress happened to arrive just off the coast of Winterhold, but my desire to continue with the mod aside from home aspects weaned, and these features will most likely never be added.

This is a comment on Steam workshop, by Psykrom, that describes the mod, and the feeling associated with it pretty well,

"Everytime I enter this realm I'm stunned.
Crystalis feels to me like a mystical shard broken from a star or a meteorit that landed in the icy realm of Skyrim. You can dive into another dimension temporarily.
The magic power of the Crystalis makes you switch through your rooms with ease with a flawless teleportation-navigation - that's what I call fast moving while crafting.
While looking awesome it's kept simple and there are named rooms/chests for your needs.
Because there are no seen walls it has it's own spacious freedom. And when you're sitting on your throne, you can just relax and forget about the needs of the mortal realm..."

A better description of the mod I couldn't give.

Mostly a final update adding some requested missing features and cleaning up the file for better compatibility with other mods.

Known issues
___________


Exterior doesn't load fully at long distances. Please contact with solution if known.


___________

Please report all bugs and issues to be remedied.

It is not possible for this mod to be causing your game to crash on start or on loading on it's own. This is caused by a conflict with other mods installed. Claiming or alluding to this mod causing your crashing does not allow me to fix what's causing it.

Please refrain from the overwhelming desire of posting some type of allusion or implication of Crystalis being derived from any source relating to Superman. It's been done with over half the comments and I've deleted several pointless "herp derp superman" comments. I've never seen the fortress of solitude in any rendition previous to making this mod that I recall, and when looking at pictures of it's various formations I don't see the significant obvious identical structure or outright mimicking so many of you have alluded to. It's a house mod made of Azura's star resources, that's it, the end. Nothing else.

People all talk about Superman but in Elder Scrolls perspective this reminds me a lot of the Fortress of Ice, once the home of Shalidor. I couldn't find any mods that actually had something compareable to the fortress of ice, but this is the best I could find. Looks awesome!

Kinda reminds me of the place Aeris was killed by Sephiroth.

Huh. I mean. I never thought about an Azura's star house. Interesting.

A lot of people say this is the Fortress of Solitude, I just see Necron's lair from Fire & Ice
