Requirements for you who consider joining Skyblivion

Navmesh
Navmesh is an essential part of Skyblivion because it enables us to control where NPCs can and cannot go; without effective navmesh, NPCs are unable to chase the player in combat and risk walking into static objects (or lava). Navmesh in Skyrim can be autogenerated or hand-drawn. Unlike in newer engines, autogen navmesh is extremely low quality in the Skyrim Creation Kit but can provide a baseline that can be edited by hand. This allows us to use a hybrid system that balances time and accuracy. Your role as a member of the Skyblivion navmesh team would involve working with autogenerated navmesh to help remove errors and optimise the pathing to ensure that it works effectively or hand-drawing navmesh from scratch. The work is fairly easy to learn but can be tedious to carry out. Although we currently work in Skyrim legendary edition, we will soon be transitioning to SSE, so if you only own that version of the game, please feel free to apply anyway. When applying, providing sufficient evidence is extremely important. This can include a link to a personal mod you have made that involved using navmesh, or screenshots of the same. Be aware that while real life always comes first, communication is a must so that the team can work cohesively. Contact Harrock#0449 or Tyber#6743 for practice modules either on the Skyblivion Community or Arcane University servers.

Any applications without clear evidence of navmeshing ability in the Skyrim Creation Kit will be ignored.

We need members who know the Creation Kit (CK) and the Papyrus scripting language well to complete this task, as well as to implement spells and magic effects, packages and npc schedules, Oblivionesque game mechanics such as spell crafting, alchemy and sigil stone enchanting, and the like. Knowledge of other scripting languages can be helpful for a few specialized tasks, but we are primarily looking for those skilled in using the CK and Papyrus.
