I'm glad that the Team is still working on Tamriel Rebuilt ... and the next release Almalexia and Heartland! But if the land is already hard-coded like in Silgrad Tower and Blacklight City ... then why not go ahead and release the whole landmass. And included buildings and NPC's in future releases ... that way the moddling community can have fun playing around with it.

New Dawn of Darkness Wallpapers and Gameplay Video have been posted for your viewing pleasure. Please check them out - the project is not dead!

Dawn of Darkness 3.0: MW Total Conversion - is forthcoming soon! A Total Conversion of Dawn of Darkness for the X-ngine based upon the Morrowind Game. I am not going to settle for anything less than doing a professional MOD. A free download ... which should be released within a month or two.

Time really does have a lot to do with this project. And the state of the Gaming Industry, finding the right engine/project. What I've developed for the story of DOD v3.0 and the Fantasy Setting completely blows away what WardSix Entertainment originally did with the Quake II Tech Engine for DOD Episode 1. All I can say is it's on the same level as a Full RPG! Like Morrowind, Baldur's Gate II, DragonLance, Lord of the Rings, and Conan! The old-style game play is gone - no longer will it be dark, demonic, or disturbing, the game will have a pure Fantasy Setting with Custom Races and Multiple Classes. No longer will it be a Lone Knight escaping a Castle Dungeon. I can also say that King Roarkic (formally known as Roarke!) is now a much more complex NPC Character with a tragic story with social, political, and personal problems to deal with. I will work on the world building process right now, and I think Dawn of Darkness: MW Total Conversion will make a lot of things out of the original story.

I have an older release of Silgrad Tower... it was awesome! I'm watching this mod hoping that it has been updated. If not, this could be a re-posting of a copy. Silgrad Tower works great with BlackLight City Mod as they both share the landmass of Tamriel Rebuilt. Will have to keep an eye on this one ...

There's is a Westly Master Head Pack ... but it is a huge download file. I use it with MCA 7.0 but both files are just too huge to post to ModDB in a single file with my mod. So that's why I use MCA 5.0 instead, it still uses the original heads from The Construction Set.

Until Open Morrowind released an actual mod or game .... there is no competition. It' just like My Mod To Do List - in my Blog. Bethesda has not to my knowledge released the tech engine for Morrowind to the public so I don't know what engine they are using? Unity3d? DarkBasic? FPS Creator? Lith Tech? Tech 4 - Doom 3? Or the Unreal Engine? It would be a major accomplishment to re-create the world of Morrowind in another engine - A few mods have done so for Oblivion and Skyrim, so it can be done. I know I don't have much room to talk with my mod - WIP - Seyda Neen Census & Village v.10 - but still I did a lot of work. And the update is being released soon ...

Thanks

Baldur's Gate I-II - Was a great turn-based game with isometric (bird's eye) view. Very popular with Old RPG'ers who were familiar with the AD&D Core Rule System. I like Baldur's Gate II more than the first one, because of the upgrades made. This game came out around the same time as Bethsda's Redguard - which was a Tomb Raider 3rd person Adventure Game. I thought that the studio would follow in the footsteps of Interplay and develop a turn-based game for Elder Scrolls - but it never happen. Instead they focused their efforts on Morrowind, and I'm glad they did.

Icewind Dale I&II - I enjoyed very much and still play now and then. I feel the same way about Icewind as I do about Baldur's Gate. Two great games, makes you feel sad that Interplay went bankrupt. Hopefully someone else or another company will buy out the franchise and continue with this style of gameplay. A much better franchise than Diablo.

Diablo I-III - I really enjoyed Diablo I when it first came out, a true hack n slash game for the trigger mouse role-player. Diablo II - I was disappointed in, because of it's long development time, and the limiting tile map with green hedges as borders. The first level should have been released as it's own individual game. While levels 2 and up had better graphics and a different locals. Diablo III - I havn't bought yet, waiting to get a new computer or x-box to play. But from the video the map also looks limiting in design with just dungeons - something that they could have done a long time ago. Looking at Unity 3d - and other games like TorchLight and Mountain King. You can tell they are not doing anything different than anyone else.

World of Warcraft - While I like WOW I have not played the game that much. I enjoyed Everquest, Guild Wars, Conan, and LOTR Online much better. I don't see what all the fuss is about a Panda Race anyway?

Thanks

TBD - Total War - Sounds very cool and exciting. With all the different factions fighting among themselves. I wonder if it will have scripted battlefields with NPC's fighting and quest-related war tactics ... hmmm interesting! I like the new armor meshes and ridable animals, but will have to wait for an actual mod.

Fallout 3 - I really enjoyed but found the engine to be blocky and jarring - the same for New Vegas with it's broken voiced dialog - the main quest and DLC's in Fallout 3 were very entertaining and overall the game was very enjoyable.

Dishonored & Rage - I have not played yet. I'll wait till I get a new computer or an X-BOX 360. The same for Assassin's Creed 2&3, which I know is not a Bethesda Game.

Thief - I have to mention because it is still my favorite game that I play all the time. Thief I-III and of course Thief IV: The Dark Mod Project based upon the Doom 3 Engine.

I use very little Skyrim Mods, except expanded cities! Again because I'm playing it at low res. on a XP. Will have to wait for a new computer or X-Box 360.

Oblivion I played alot but found little that I would like to add to the game, agree it was generic! Knight of The Nine I enjoyed greatly and think it was a good addon. Shivering Isles, while I liked the weird landscape and both cities Bliss and Crucible, I found it disturbing and not a good main quest.

Morrowind - Still holds some strange attraction for me. And there are a ton of mods for the game. I only played it all the way through once, but can't seem to get past the first town without making changes ... I feel the same way about the whole game in general.

Daggefall - To me is the ultimate game. Not only to the tons of side quest, main quest, expanded landmass that takes you across the whole Illaic Bay. But tons of twisting dungeons and crypts. The game is just endless in options and thing to do. The only handicap is the 2D Graphics. If they took the core of this game and updated the graphics to DX11 ... it would blow Skyrim out of the water!

Arena - While I enjoyed the game, I found the mist Fog of War limiting in gameplay. But still the best RPG game to come out in it's day.

Morrowind has always had better mods and support from the moddling community. Oblivion to me was too blocky with a zooming face feature that I did not care for. Fallout 3 was also too blocky? And Fallout New Vegas was really broken with voiced dialog? Skyrim I'm running on XP at low res. so I can't give a good review. But will try it out on the XBOX 360.

Daggerfall for me was the best game in size and landmass. And there were features in DF that was not repeated in future games, the only problem was the 2d graphics. As for Morrowind, it is still my favorite game and MW Rebirth is one of the best mods out there! Oblivion for me was too blocky with big meshes and zooming face dialouge. Fallout 3 was also too blocky! Skyrim I can play on XP but at low resolutons, and I really dislike Steam from Value. When you buy a cd/dvd the game should run right out of the box, without a login from a sever unless it is a MMO. Will have to play Skyrim on an X-box 360 to try it out.

There are a lot of conflicts between island and landmasses mods, some of them have patches so that they can co-exist together. I might release a patch for some islands to include ships and travel back and forth from the mainland. Will have to wait and see ... I would like to include Tamriel Rebuilt, Silgrad Tower, etc. Will have to check the readme and get permissions.
