EricBoyceU @ Dawn of Darkness v3.0

I will return to Dawn of Darkness, and repost my old file for the Quake 2 engine! (It includes roarkes sound files, in the Quake 2 TC with my Text Mod!) And then I hope to begin working on my Total Conversion of Dawn of Darkness to the Morrowind Engine! Even though both engines are old, I am more familiar with the Morrowind Engine than Oblivion or Skyrim. And Morrowind already has the swamp textures and meshes I need for the Witch's Swamp after the Village of Elvod. I will be posting my MODS here on ModDB and Morrowind Mod History site, and Nexus. Dawn of Darkness has always held a fascination with me, going all the way back to 1997 when it was first released. I'm glad that it still has a fan base and people still care about the story. It is shame, that the game has been forgotten for so long, but Alex (Toadeater) has abandoned the project for over 15 years. Any thing I do, will be done with respect to what WardSix has done, and be done as a Free Download! I don't claim credit for their work, just an addon for the Fans!

Until the meantime ...
You can use the following Cheat Commands:

God - All Health
Give Bow
Give Ancestral Sword
Give Crossbow
Give Blunderbuss
Give Three Barrel Flintlock
Give Shovel
Give Cannon Balls

Just spand the numeric keypad 1-9 for a full list of missing weapons. And use the Give command in the ` (slide) key by the 1 numeric key to pull down the console to give yourself weapons.

Quick Walk-Through -

And remember the Dialog Tree is easly broken if not followed in a specific manner - use the Arrow Keys to go through the Menu Options and the Enter Key to choose Dialog Topics. Remember to talk to the Cell Prisoners first, and you will have to return atleast two to three times to talk to the prisoners before you can leave the level. Cho the Thief holds the Riddle to leave the level, if you have the coin. All Characters have multiple responses and sometimes two menu options so Click On Them Often ... there is a ton of dialog. Then find the Azna Prestess for healing, Busta in Courtyard to start the Quest, then the Cook, the Kids (can you find the bread?) hidden throughout the level, find the Comberry Bush, Busta's Ingerent, and the Boarded-up Study with a secret accces in the Sewers. Find the Kids in the Dungeon, Libary, and Locked Rooms. The Mute Boy is in a locked room at the top of the keep, if you can find the Darkened Door in the Hallway (hint look for the light on the floor.) Find the Priest of Manaywd, and kill the Guards! Open the Manaywd Temple of Azna, kill Moktar the Priest - if you can catch him! And find the Gated Exit ... to leave for the Village of Elvod. Can you ride a Camle ... why are there no Horses?

Cheers!

This classic RPG Dawn of Darkness v3.0 is notable for its enormity – and variety in dialog options, being large and ambitious even by today's standards when compared to later games, using the Quake 2 Engine! Even if it’s visually clunky today, the gameplay and story still holds true to any RPG Fan! This file is a self contained .exe all you have to do is download the file, place the file in your c: directory, no sub-folder, and the DOD icon on your desktop, and read the readme! Click the file and Play! The game will download and run on any version of windows 98, XP, 7, and 8! You do not need dosbox or any other external program... just Click and Play!

The Merchant Fendus is great! And The Sable Dragon should work with no problems. The majority of mods that work with Rebirth are texture replacers, and game enhancements... I like to use AbotBoats, Abot Siltstriders, Abot Birds, Abot Waterlife, with DN First Person Enhanced, Sword Sheaths, Magic Diversity, Windows Glow (which will require a little editing, since Rebirth moved some buildings around in Pelagiad), On the Rocks, Morrowind Comes Alive 8.0, and MSGO v3.0! Bloodmoon Overhaul (tomb of snow prince) and Tamriel Rebuilt (new Alpha Landmass which includes Old Ebonheart & Alexandra (Mournhold)!)

Yes I had to adjust the trees by the bridge in Balmora so there would be no conflict with Abot Siltstriders! But Abot Boats seems to work fine!

Silgard Tower and Blacklight City are no long compatable with the new Tamriel Landmass... so you will have to choose the Alpha or Beta landmass if you want use Silgard Tower.

Gaming Table for Power Players!

The Lone Wolf - Adventure Game Books is something I use all the time at the Role Playing Gaming Table! It is a good base package to start an adventure, and easy to convert to any game world or rule system that you are currently using. Although I recommend hosting the game in the Magnamund World. Easy to read paragraphs, that can be trimmed down, to give a brief description of the environment, monsters, and evil enemies to block the player characters path through your adventure. With over 20 books in the package download, you can host a long running campaign all year long. Host your Adventure Party with soda, chips, pizza, subs, boneless chicken wings, and a wooden treasure chest filled with gold coins!

INSTALLATION:

This Base Package is the glue that helps you navigate your downloaded books from Project Aon. To start, open the file named "Lone Wolf - Play - index.htm" in your favorite web browser. This is usually as simple as double clicking on the file icon. From there, you will be presented with a list of books currently available from Project Aon.

There is no way you make the Landscape modular! You will have to deal with the fact that Morrowind Rebirth is a Total Conversion.

Here is the link to Guar v1.17... Talk or bribe the ashlander guar tamers to reveal the secrets of smart mountable guars!

Might I suggest also Abot Siltstriders! Abot Boats! Abot WaterLife! and Abot WhereareBirds!

The easiest way to achieve this is using the Construction Set, and slightly moving all the exterior and interior buildings. This will make the villages and cities modular... and Save! This will undo the landscape changes which causes a lot of conflicts with other mods. But then you will be losing out on all that great foliage and plants added to the game!

I really like the progress being made on Morrowind Rebirth. And I am still a fan... after all these years! I have given tons of advice in past post and pictures... and hope you will go back and look at them, and even use some of my ideas in future installments.

EricBoyceU @ Morrowind Rebirth 3.6

You will need a fresh install of original morrowind. Then install MSGO v3.0 going through the whole process, and installing updates if needed! Once finished... install Morrowind Rebirth v3.0 ontop of MSGO. Open the construction set... and load Rebirth and click save. This will put Rebirth at the bottom of the Data Files. Open the Menu of Morrowind on your desktop and click all the files in Data Files! Hit Play! (I even loaded more data files from my private collection like DN First Person Enhanced, Abot Animation Boat & Silt Striders - which you need to move some trees in Balmora and the Arched Rock by the bridge so they don't interfere with the animated Silt Strider!) MSGO will be your biggest step, once you get that install... it should be fairly easy to install Rebirth over the files.

Some Mods do work with Rebirth... like Better Bodies, Better Heads, and Better Clothes. MSGO v3.0 can work if replace the rebirth meshes and textures after MSGO. On the Rocks, Music Files, and Texture Replacers. Armor and Weapons mods work too if they are in barrels and do not add a Shop. Abot Animation Boats and Silt Striders work with a little modification in Balmora... etc. NPC's should work too!

EricBoyceU @ Boo! I do not approve.

This is a hard one! Where I believe Mods should be Free... and free to download and use and modify! I do think that some mods are worth paying for like MSGO v3.0 and other Total Conversions! Morrowind Rebirth is one of those mods that could benefit from a Donations Button! And even a payrate of $19.95! (Blowing Smoke!) I however, would never charge anyone for my broken WIP... in fact it even got banned on ModDB! So go figure...

I would like to see the gameplay changes in a separate .esm or .esp. But given to all the changes you have already made to vanilla morrowind, it would be a nightmare to compile. The cities could be made into a separate .esp but I really don't see the point. You are talking about dismantling the whole project and rebuilding it in separate .esp's.

I suggest using MSGO v3.0 and Tamriel Rebuilt. There is already a great video set on youtube by Sorcerer Dave using Rebirth v3.0 and TR latest update.
