Clarification

1) Morrowind Rebirth is nothing like MGSO. Rebirth is all about enhancing the in-game experience by overhauling cities/landscapes, by fixing bugs and balance issues, and by introducing new creatures, weapons and armor-pieces. MGSO as you might have noticed by now, is all about graphics and sound. Obviously there are some graphical elements in Rebirth, but these are mainly mesh-replacers, and are aimed to make the in-game models a bit easier on the eyes.

2) Morrowind Rebirth is not a mod-compilation. Yes there are a few mods included in Rebirth, but I wouldn't call that a compilation. This mod was made by hand, using assets and resources made by Bethesda and the Morrowind community.


Introduction

Explore the island of Vvardenfell as you never have before, with a world built anew to be both alien and familiar to the Morrowind you knew before. New adventures await, with new exciting areas to see and explore, and new artifacts just waiting to be discovered. This is a complete overhaul for Morrowind, adding countless new details, weapons, armors and much more for you to see and do. Experience the world of Morrowind in a new light, try out Morrowind Rebirth today!


Features

Please keep in mind that this mod is a work in progress, meaning that things can and will change. For those of you who want more information about the changes in this modification, please refer to the changelog, which can be found here: Moddb.com


New encounters and places to visit

Explore the Island of Vvardenfell once again, but keep in mind that things are not what they used to be. New packs of bandits and villains have more difficult to travel throughout the wilderness, new dark cults have formed, and it's harder than ever before to survive in an already dark and hostile environment.


Rebuilt cities with loads of details
Cities are no longer empty shells with a few NPCs wandering about. Expect a massive increase in detail including new traders, NPCs, houses, shops, Inns and an overall feel that cities are actually "alive".


More than 20 new creatures to battle

Encounter new vicious creatures such as the mighty Draugr Deathlord, the chilling Frost Monarch or the agile Ash Scorpion. Beware, these foes are not to be taken lightly!


New weapons, armor and misc items

Battle your way throughout Vvardenfell with a vast array of new weapons and armor, both normal ones that complement existing sets, and uniques' that are far more powerful.


New music, splashscreens and main menu
s
Included are new tracks, suited for both battles and for exploration, 11 new beautifully crafted splash screens, and two new main menu screens. These additons are optional, and not needed for the mod to function properly.


Better landscapes with less seams and floaters.

In Morrowind there were a lot of empty flat areas and very little efficiency in use of space. With Rebirth I've tried to eliminate these issues, giving each area a unique look. There has also been an effort to eliminate all texture seams and floaters throughout the world.


Balance tweaks and bugfixes
Fixed a large number of floaters, reduced clipping meshes, corrected miss-aligned objects and fixed some script/text bugs. Also tweaked settings, spells, weapons, armor, misc items, merchants etc to make the game more balanced and thus more enjoyable.


BUGS

It's important that you, the players, provide me with feedback and support. Without it I might not be able to track down bugs introduced by Morrowind Rebirth. You're also welcome to report issues found in vanilla Morrowind. Post your bug-reports in the forum section here: Moddb.com , at nexus: Nexusmods.com or send me a personal message.


F.A.Q


Morrowind Graphic and Sound Overhaul and Morrowind Rebirth
Again, Morrowind Rebirth is nothing like MGSO. Rebirth is all about enhancing the in-game experience by overhauling cities/landscapes, by fixing bugs and balance issues, and by introducing new creatures, weapons and armor-pieces. MGSO as you might have noticed by now, is all about graphics and sound. Obviously there are some graphical elements in Rebirth, but these are mainly mesh-replacers, and are aimed to make the in-game models a bit easier on the eyes.


With that said, is Morrowind Rebirth compatible with MGSO? That depends! There are some things you need to do in order to avoid issues (though you may still experience some issues). Start by downloading MGSO, then click the installer, and follow the instructions until you reach to "custom option"-screen. Now keep in mind that you need to tick the "custom mod" option for each flora region. You will also need to deactivate grass by choosing "no grass" for both Vvardenfell and Solstheim. Last but not least. Do NOT tick "Animated Morrowind". It's not compatible with Morrowind Rebirth.


When you've completed the installation, please continue with Morrowind Rebirth. Extract the files to your Morrowind root folder as stated in the Morrowind Rebirth readme. If you're told to overwrite any files, press "no" (I've had a few people reporting that pressing "yes" might cause issues). There's also five plugins included in the MGSO archive that need to be removed: "Texture Fix 2.0.esm", "Poorly Placed Object Fix 1.2.esm", "Morrowind Patch 1.6.5 Beta (BTB Edit).esm", "Windows Glow" and "Animated Morrowind". That should be it.


Old Save Games
Please read the article "How to update your old save game to a new version using Wyre Mash", which can be found here: Moddb.com


Installation and requirements

Please read the article "Installation & requirements", which can be found here: Moddb.com


Compatibility
Morrowind Rebirth is a huge modification and will not work well with a lot of other mods, especially those that alter landscape or add new buildings. There's no list of specific mods that work with Rebirth, but the most popular ones like "Tamriel Rebuilt" and "LGNPC" should work just fine (minor issues). Mods that add or alter dialogue should work well too. If you have any other questions regarding mods and compatibility, let me know and I'll try to answer them for you.


WARNING
Do not use "Morrowind Rebirth - Morrowind Patch 1.6.5 Beta [Rebirth Edit]" included in the Morrowind Rebirth archive along with "Morrowind Patch 1.6.5 Beta", "Morrowind Patch 1.6.5 Beta [BTB Edit]", "Morrowind Patch 1.6.6 Beta" or the "Unofficial Morrowind Patch Project". Also note that "Texture Fix 2.0", "Poorly Placed Object Fix v1.2", "Windows Glow", and "Animated Morrowind" are not compatible with Morrowind Rebirth.

will there be by any chance we could have a 'Lite' version of MR?

there are bug's in the physics side of things where fps get's drained in a sequential manner

probable causes are fake bump mapping and mesh clipping

These issues are with OpenMW, they effect the original game and other mods too. It'd be unreasonable to rework the entire mod just to reduce the effect of a physics bug that will probably be fixed soon anyways. The fake bump mapping issue that causes silver rocks is very easy to fix using GIMP.

There will be a lite version in the future, but only in the sense that it won't include balance changes etc.

I have read that MW rebirth rebalances the game but according to your instruction, we need to install morrowind code patch. The problem is, the patch contains it's own way of rebalancing features. What should we enable/not enable from the patch?

Use whatever fixes you see fit. The code patch deals with issues that can't be fixed using just mods (like Rebirth).

What are your thoughts on BtB's gameplay improvements?

I was a BTB user before Rebirth, and decided to give it up for the benefits Rebirth has over it. I find Rebirth takes a much more moderate approach to game balance, opting to nerf loot and de-inflate the economy, while ultimately leaving game-breaking mechanics in play. I do still use some BTB edited/recommended plugins like Service Requirements and Merchant Skills, and also have a custom plugin to tweak for my preferences and play-style.

I think we have to wait for OpenMW to hit 1.0, one of their post-release goals is to find a way to expose otherwise hard-coded mechanics. Then modders will have a decent chance at balance and the required changes will be much less controversial than some of the stuff BTB proposes.

For now, I think it's best to look at how you play and focus on the specific issues that effect your play-style.

I haven't used his plugins myself so I can't say for sure, but from what I've heard the balance changes are pretty drastic, more so than MR.
