Oblivion:Exterior Test Cells

Oblivion: Places

Exterior Test Cells are exterior regions (or "worlds") that exist in the game's data files but are not part of gameplay. Interior Test Cells lists similar interior regions. These locations cannot be accessed in-game except through console commands. They can be accessed by typing coc [editor ID] into the console.

EmptyWorldEdit

This world consists of 4 cells, only one of which is not identified as Wilderness.

The world is not actually empty, but it is slightly unusual: the ground is transparent. NOTE: this is actually a blank version of Cyrodiil; it was used to make the alternative worldspaces for the separate towns and each Imperial district (including Prison and the Arcane University)

TestWorldEdit

This world consists of 65 cells, of which 7 are not identified as Wilderness.

DeerPath 0001CB5A (-2,3)
Hawkhaven02 00023233 (0,0)
Hawkhaven 00025261 (0,1)

Hawkhaven appears to be an early development test of town layouts. The residents of Hawkhaven mostly consist of NPCs from other test cells such as the Fighting Dojo, and some of their dialogue consists of scripting explanations, like, "Talking to a merchant will present the Trade button, which will open the Trade window." Almost everything in the game can be accessed here; creatures, weapons, armor, quest items; even a few items that were created early on but cut from the game (such as Knight of Order armor).

The Testing Hall can be accessed by entering one of the town's houses, specifically the one behind the player if they access Hawkhaven via Console Commands. Other buildings that can be accessed include the Trespass Warehouse and a prison test cell known as the "Crime Warehouse". Although there are other buildings including a chapel, their doors don't function, as they aren't connected to other cells.

One NPC serves as a vendor with various services, and can be found just beside the door to the Testing Hall. There is also a guard (simply named "Guard") in full Imperial Legion armor (minus the shield) that will display typical city guard behavior. If any of the monsters from the nearby CreatureGrove approaches, he will attack. He will also arrest you if you commit a crime, and if you opt to go to jail, you will be locked up in the Crime Warehouse. You will also be brought just outside its front door if you choose to pay the fine instead.

Hawkhaven can be accessed from the WarehouseTrespass and TestingHall interior test cells.

Contains a large variety of different non-leveled enemies, including Daedra, undead, regular animals, and Marauders. As soon as you enter the TestWorld, either via the console or via the Testing Hall, many of these creatures will immediately start fighting with each other.
