Bugs and other issues

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 at either site.


Morrowind Rebirth and MGSO

I do not recommend MGSO for two reasons: 1) It's outdated 2) It's unoptimized. MGSO includes a heap of stuff including textures that are inconsistent, and meshes that are so badly optimized that they can cause serious fps-issues. This is especially troublesome when using Morrowind Rebirth along with MGSO, since Rebirth adds a ton of stuff to the gameworld. One object without proper collision or with too many polys won't cause any harm, but multiply that by ten and you are bound to experience massive framedrops.

Rebirth on the other hand includes a large number of mesh replacers that are, in most cases, optimized. These meshes are also up-to-date, ensuring that you, the player, will have the best looking models possible without causing a ton of hitching. With that said I wouldn't recommend MGSO. The proper way to play Rebirth with the best possible fidelity is to use MGE XE: Nexusmods.com and handpick texture replacers from either morrowind nexus or morrowind modding history.


Morrowind Rebirth and OpenMW

Morrowind Rebirth is compatible with OpenMW, and should be compatible with it's multiplayer component, too.

Which are the worst balance changes in Rebirth?

Hello guys! A few weeks have past since the latest major update to Morrowind Rebirth, and it seems that you guys are enjoying it. With that said there were a few issues that had to be adressed, such as the compatibility issues with Tamriel Rebuilt. Enjoy!

Vanilla Fixes
* Fixed the descriptions of Drain Health, Drain Magicka, Drain Fatigue, Drain Skill and Dran Attribute. They all stated that "The magnitude is the units of X reduced each second of duration.", which is incorrect. The descriptions now reads "The magnitude is the static amount of X missing until the duration ends."


Morrowind Rebirth Fixes
* Fixed an issue where the topic 'Valbrandr draugr' was mistakenly removed from the game, making it impossible to finish a quest.
* Fixed an issue where a book cover texture was saved in the wrong format, causing the book to display white textures.
* Fixed an issue where the new grazeland trees caused issues in Firewatch and the surrounding area (Tamriel Rebuilt).
* Fixed an issue where the Mages Guild circle travel option to Wolverine Hall teleported you to the wrong location.
* Fixed an issue where the topic 'Strong souls' didn't give the correct information about summoned creatures.
* Fixed an issue where a container ID name was changed, and could potentially cause issues with other mods.
* Fixed an issue where Duke's Guard Right Bracer "type" was set as Right Gauntlet.
* Fixed an issue where Duke's Guard right and left Pauldrons names were switched.

Tweaks to Grazeland trees


Morrowind Rebirth Changes
* The Imperial Skirt and Imperial Templar skirt were notoriusly hard to come by unless you killed an Imperial Guard or an Imperial Knight. To remedy this small annoyance
a few skirts have been placed in and around Imperial Forts and a few other places.
* Improved the lighting in Phenem Ancestral Tomb and Outpost Renius.
* Passive health regeneration has been removed from the mod.

Will this mod work with "The Bare Necessities"?

It's basically a realism/immersion mod that forces players to eat, drink and sleep regularly to survive. It also makes it so we can longer rest in the open to recover our stats, now we have to either find a bed, buy a bed roll or go to an inn for that.

Yes! The tamriel rebuilt tree issue has been fixed! Time to make a new morrowind installation with the latest Tamriel rebuilt and morrowind rebirth... at least once I've finished building the modded oblivion installation I'm working on. I'm pretty sure I spend way more time installing mods for these games than actually playing them.

Also I'm very excited for dungeons in the next release (v5.0 or v4.4?). Morrowind's dungeons have always felt a bit lacking in detail, which I imagine you'll be fixing. Will you be just doing things like that, or will you also do large scale changes like adding sections and making the dungeons a bit longer and more complex? I always felt that particularly the dwemer ruins were way to small and boring.

Anyway, thank you for your work on this. It and tamriel rebuilt are my favorite mods of all time.

You'd be suprised to see the amount of hours I've spent playing MW the last 10 years. My guess is around 5-10 hours lol.

Anyway the dungeons will be brand new, and while some of the dungeons in vanilla need a refreshment, I do not intend to do much to them in 4.4. With that said I do have plans for Morrowinds dungeons too, but now is not the right time.

I love your mod, I look forward to the updates eagerly. I like what you have done to Ald-ruhn so far (I always thought it it should be a walled city) but the rest still seems rather barren, any plans or thoughts on making it feel more like a real city and seat of Great House Redoran? Just curious:)

Hi Stan :)

I don't have any specific things I want to do to Ald-ruhn, other than perhaps adding a bit more foliage and a few containers here and there. Perhaps a few vendor stalls too.
