Will you be expanding into Solstheim and Mournhold? It seems enough has been done to Seyda Neen, Ebonheart, and Balmora?

Any news for Rebirth v3.0? A big milestone... in the series! Looking forward to changes that you have made! I noticed that some issues have not been addressed... like the Nord outside of Caladera, who needs clothes! Any plans for the ebony mine? Will you be including a rented bed in Demmy's Den? He still offers a room for rent? I missed out on v2.8 and v2.9 due to sickness, but catching back up on the releases! I did a quick run through with my character? How do you start the Black Pearl quest?

Thanks
Eric

Morrowind is still the main game on my computer after all these years! With over a thousand mods in my collection, which I'm still sorting through and finding conflicts and compatibility issues, and trying to make them all work together in a custom Uber-Mod!!! I love the lore of the Elder Scrolls Series and the variety of sidequest which there should be more of. Oblivion to me was very generic and lost a lot of that magical and variety that MW offered. Skyrim while a good solid game was handicapped by Steam ... and manual online activation. Elder Scrolls Online may re-energize the series with offering the whole landmass of Tamriel to play in. But with a bad economy and tight budgets, with most players still owing old XP computers ... Morrowind Rebirth and Tamriel Rebuilt offer great gameplay for a game that was released back in 2002!

EricBoyceU @ Dawn of Darkness

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!

EricBoyceU @ Dawn of Darkness modding future

Thank you, I'm slowly getting back into modding! My first mission is to finish my broken WIP Seyda Neen. And then I will return to Dawn of Darkness, and repost my old file for the Quake 2 engine! (If you don't mind I would like to include your 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. It will be an easy Total Conversion to do... because Morrowind already has everything you need to do it; just have to work with a blank.esm and re-do the landscape. I will be posting my MODS here on ModDB and Morrowind Mod History site, and Nexus. The WIP for Seyda Neen is coming along, and I hope to post in February/March! I hope to upload my old DOD Quake 2 file soon... just have to find my backup copy on cd! 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.

EricBoyceU @ Small fix in 2.8: Handle/Keyhole

Is the new door handle model on the left, first one! This is very interesting, since doors have keys... there should be a keyhole! There is already a mod out with custom keys, have to find the link! But it is in my files! (With animation the door lock mechanisim could be like Oblivion & Skyrim!) But that would take a lot of work... which I don't have the skill in animations to pull off.

Sudan - The Black Goblet - the trap door in the storage room (once unlocked) just spins around with no transportation to a cellar!

Suran - Desele's House of Earthly Delights - Should be made into a Night Club (clothes on dancers) since many complain about nudity, and dancing men! Hlomor Wine Sot outside of Caldera, needs Bloodmoon clothing too!

There was an Abot Gwar mod, that had ridable guars animations! And I would like to see Abot Boats, Abot Silt Striders, and Abot Gondolas. Animations really add to the Morrowind Experience.

This is caused by either a corrupt save game in the cell you are in! Or the installation order of the mods you are using. It is recommended to play- Rebirth alone as a Total Conversion. (Wait for TransMaster_1988 to respond!)

I am sick and tired of seeing Caius looking like a bum in a run down apartment. So I found this mod and decided to share!

I can't get the Circle of Eight to activate... front x error! Both patches are installed. What is the correct install path (c://Temple of elemental evil or c:/program files/Atari/temple...) The mod COE wants to install in C as it's own folder???

EricBoyceU @ Morrowind Rebirth 3.5

(1) Hlomor Wine-Sot outside Caldera! Nothing has been done to him since vanilla original game. Maybe some clothes from BM expansion and empty bottles. (There was a drunk script somewhere... maybe city of jarvik or MCA 8.0 or other animations!) I know the quest script says The Witch stole his clothes, but it could be changed to Nord Armor. I always found him to be offensive!

(2) Seyda Neen - Red Lantern Inn - the Raksata quest note and key hint to a chest with gold and a diamond. Found Mulvisie Othril in Addamasatus Cave but she attacks everyone instead of dialog for the quest.

(3) Two boats missing from Seyda Neen docks by the huts?

Still running around with my character...,

EricBoyceU @ [NEWS] 2.71 and feedback

I like the small changes to Ebonheart...

(1) The first well in the dragon courtyard could be merged with the second well in the training castle courtyard. And I would move the bow and arrow targets in the dragon statue area, to behind the tavern and castle wall in the training area established in the Skyrim & Arogian Mission buildings. I would move the hearth blacksmith too... behind the castle wall.

(2) I would add buildings and shops in the empty places left behind from the well & target areas. (If you moved them to the training area near the mission buildings!) You would need an Armor & Weapon shop. A Pawn Shop and Apothecary & Mages Shop. Or something similar... I know Pelgraid & Caldera already have these services, but in an early build you had merchant stalls in Ebonheart, and I would like to see them have buildings. Maybe even a horse stall, with that plugin.

(3) The Chapel building in the back castle courtyard needs to be opened up! I would like to see it expanded... maybe even with a back docking area?! With steps leading down to the sea with imperial docks... and new ship models. (I know you have been reluctant to included new ship models in the past, but there are a few good ones out there including a pirate ship, ultimate galleon, and wooden ship. Interiors inside Ebonheart need reworking too... they look vanilla from the original game.

Still running around with my character... cheers!

I believe you can save in an interior building, and Save. This will prevent you from starting all over with a New Game. Most of the changes are landscape issue or weapon value changes, which is why it is recommended to start a new game... but an interior building save may help you.

Did you fix the three gauntlets Morag Tong, Colovian, and Golden Saint gauntlets in first person? I sent a PM ... I think your missing .tga file below the icon in CS.

Is this the new changes made to Bitter Coast region? I ran past so fast with my character I didn't check this area on my way to Vivic and Ebonheart. Looks great! I have to check out that sunken ship.... hidden treasure!

EricBoyceU @ Balmora

Balmora has changed a lot since the vanilla game... I would like to see a more dangerous urban center, that is in ruins with trash and empty bottles in the streets, enemy NPC's. The temple needs to be raised up some on a stone foundation with steps leading up. I like the changes made to Vivic entrance. Great Job!
