About Arktwend

Arktwend is a total conversion to The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind.

Arktwend is the name of the country in which the game is played. The size of the continent is around 30 square kilometers, making it larger than Morrowind. The player traverses idyllic forests, birds are flying through the air, animals such as sheep, deer, hares, wild boars and wolves cavort on the ground and fish swim in the underwater. Leaves fall from trees, grass and grain sway in the wind.

In between, there are always settlements, the largest city in the game is about the size of Vivec. A large part of the game takes place in Stormwend, the intellectual and cultural center of Arktwend, here are many guilds where you can join the city guards, the cleric, the gladiators, the Brotherhood or the Thieves Guild. One rumor, however, is that somewhere in the woods of Arktwend there still is a guild of hunters that has kept hidden, a group of rough boys.

The player can join each of these guilds and receive quests from them. In Stormwend itself resides Kanzler Brutus, a power-crazed tyrant, he has withdrawn into the big tower on the outskirts of the city front, from here the fate of the whole Arktwend will be decided. Furthermore, there are many small villages and castles throughout the country in which the player can fulfill side quests. The player begins his adventure in a monastery where he grew up, outside the monastery the whole wide world awaits him. But strange things have happen in Arktwend - Shadows roam the land and long-forgotten, old forces pushing back the power. The age of heroes has begun!

Arktwend EV Release

News 0 comments

You need download only Arktwend Final 1.0.0 form SureAi. The other patches are included in the English translation. Included with the translation download one needed missing texture we found, a Music folder that has 4 extra music files from one of the patches and an English ini. The oringal Morrowind ini will not work correctly so you will need to use the in the English download because it is a TC. Sureai.de

Arktwend
EMaster vXXX Translated Master is on their download page or if an update has taken place the latest might be found at the link below.

Burrowind has made an excellent install guide because the installer is in German it might be confusing, also he show how to set it up as a multi-install so you can play Morrowind and then switch back to Aktwend. Here is his link to the web page. There are some excellent in game screenshots there. Morrowind2009.wordpress.com

Here's a tip: Try installing Vvardenfell Visages Volume I as a face replacer. It works, since it's pluginless.

To Install Arktwend files
------------------
Run its installer.

To Play
------------------
Only activate Arktwend EMaster vXXX.esm after installing nothing else.

This esm has everything in it but MWE. I halted it in order to track down errors and thought it might be causing some, it was just the MWE Combat system.

You do not need to use Morrowind Enhanced with the English version.

They recommend using mw_fps_opt, because it makes an enormous increase in sight received, making the landscapes of Arktwends even more enjoyable. It is provided in their download package. Abot has been running Arktwend with MGE and it seems to be working out ok. So if you want to try that you can.

Remember to use their Morrowind.ini or mine. I did include the ini I have been using just in case; I altered where it said language, yes to all and show fps. I changed it from German to English that way I could use the console with the English keyboard otherwise it is in German, even when you save. I more point concerning the ini – If you use my English ini and then switch to their German ini none of the save games will show up in the game. This is because of the language setting they were saved in. To get them back either switch ini or go into the ini and change the language line to English or German. Then your saves will show up again.

NOTICE - Must Do
------------------
Don't use levitate or jump walls in Stormwend or in spots where it tells you to come back later because you will break some quests. Most of the time you can levitate in Stormwend but when a quest is give or an event happens, you should walk through. Otherwise go where you want. Also if
you have to escort someone don't lose them or you won't be able to finish the quest.

is it possible to play morrowind later on with this installed? also, is it compatible with MGE? I heard that people had problems with morrowind objects (like trees and grass) appearing in arktwend, in mid air, as if morrowind's landmass was merged with arktwends

I havent built a character previously, and when i do get it to work it crashes as soon as the lady comes into the bar when you've just got out of the tutorial level after you have made your character. Im running with the english submod which seems to be causing the problem as well.

Arktwend is a very ambitious mod, but lacks polish. Clearly, SureAI wanted to make this at least as detailed as Morrowind. The game world is absolutely enormous, but is more restrictive than Morrowind's world. This can actually make it feel smaller than Morrowind at times. Also, there is only one highly inhabited part of Arktwend, which is the north west area of land surrounding the city of Stormwend. While this makes other parts of Arktwend seem mysterious, it also makes it generally harder to…
