The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an epic, open-ended single-player game where you create and play any kind of character you can imagine. Be the noble hero embarking on an epic quest, or an insidious thief rising to leadership of his guild. Be a malevolent sorcerer developing the ultimate spell of destruction, or a reverent healer searching for the cure to a plague. Your actions define your character, and your gameplay changes and evolves in response to your actions. Confront the assassins' guild, and they take out a contract on you. Impress them, and they try to recruit you instead. No two sagas are the same in the world of Morrowind. Gameplay is further extended with the inclusion of The Elder Scrolls Construction Set (bundled with the game). This powerful tool is being used to create the entire game, and will also allow players to modify and add to Morrowind in any way they see fit.

Post tutorial Report content RSS feed How to Install Mods for Morrowind

Thats is a simple and easy "TODO list" to sucesfully install a mod into Morrowind.

Basic Management.

First, Install the game from the CD.
Ok,..thats easy.
Then, ..unzip the mod file inside a folder, with internal dir structure (if the zip have dirs, dont kill these!).

Most mods will expand to one .esp file, and a few dirs. Move that to the "Data Files" directory. That directory already may have some esp files.
That where other mods. If you need to overwrite files, do it for readme, etc.. but avoid overwriting old mods :D (renaming is Ok).

Then you need to start Morrowind from the launcher (this is "Morrowind Launcher.exe" from the parent dir), go to "Data Files", look into listbox, and check the name of your new mod (will be added to all other mods).


The new mod will change your future savegames, so removing the mods May (or not) break these savegames. If everything goes wrong, try to click "yes" and "follow", and avoid "no". If you sucesfully loaded a savegame, often saving to other name can fix everything,... loading from the new savegame will not show warnings.

This is my first Tutorial. Sorry for his crappyness and my bad english.
