The ship that takes you to Raven Rock

Recommended Posts

The ship is supposed to be the same one you take in Windhelm, but neither the items you drop on the deck nor the barrels are actually transfered.

They won't be. The game doesn't work in the manner you'd like it to. If you drop something in Raven Rock, it won't be there in Windhelm because that's a different set of objects and containers. That's just how the game works.

Windhelm is in the Skyrim worldspace and Raven Rock is in the Solstheim worldspace.  Doesn't that make an item vanish, if an item is dropped on the boat?

Thanks for the reply. So they are two identical ships after all.

No it won't disappear. The item will stay where it is dropped. Same if you put the item in one of the barrels on the ship.

Yes. Two ships in two worldspaces. Instead, they move you and your companions to the other ship copy. Easier that way. Anything you left on the other copy of the ship should still be there when you return, though.

Same thing with boat transport between Solitude, Dawnstar, Windhelm; even though they are all in the same worldspace.

IMnsHO, they'd really not done a great job with ship and boat transport. Tacked on in DLC, not fully finished. Same as with carriages: they had a good concept, then did a simpler fast-travel-like system as they hit a deadline.

For example, why in the heck does the most recent horse you rode show up, even though that was in a different town? :facepalm:
