There's a particular long table that we have in the build module, it's basically the longest table available (Table: Long1).  The only long table that will fit eight or ten seats unsquished.  The rest of the so-called banquet tables might fit four seats, so there's actually not much of anything useful for larger dining or banquet tables in the module, IMO.

The only issue with this table is that it has two tall vases/censers/bowls attached that realistically would completely block the vision of anyone sitting at each end.

It's just one of those small niggling details that annoy, and get one to thinking why anyone would put a two-foot tall vase on each end of a table to completely isolate whoever's sitting there, like the lord and lady of the manor.  Being the only decent long table, I had thought I'd just have to live with this stupid table and hope no one would notice that my Elf noble lady was totally buried from sight at the head of the table.

But this table has a redone appearance in the module Darkness over Daggerford, it's the same long table but without those two huge objects attached (Table Long).  This table is suddenly totally useful and non-stupid now.

So, my question is, can I extract this appearance and give it to you to get it into the module, The Amethyst Dragon?

Yes.

Smile I'll be doing a hak update sometime in the relatively near future (to get in the new drow interior model work and loadscreens), so it's a good time to add a simple placeable model.

Awesome! Thanks a bunch!

Then what's the best procedure for me to extract this model from Darkness Over Daggerford?

Is it just exporting an ERF, or do I have to crack into the haks?

I checked, and that placeable model (dag_longtable.mdl) is actually in the CEP haks, but for some reason the CEP team missed the 2da entry for it (which means I didn't notice when merging).  After the next hak update, it'll be listed as "Table: Long (DAG) *".

The Amethyst Dragon, would you be kind enough to change the table in Crid's dining area to this new one? My hope is that the static food placeables will all line up properly.

Please let me know if that can be done?

From what I've seen, the table is identical except for a very tiny variation in the placement width-wise (the narrow part of the table shifts just a bit to the side). Might not even be enough to notice for those place settings.

Done for next module update.
