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.

3.7 coming soon!

Vanilla Fixes
* Fixed an issue with Mzahnch entrance, which wasn't properly attached to another mesh.

Morrowind Rebirth Fixes
* Fixed an issue where dialogue tells the player that: "Fort Buckmoth is the Imperial Legion's garrison for Redoran District. The fort lies south of Ald'ruhn, a short walk from Ald'ruhn's south gate.". The south gate doesn't exist in
Morrowind Rebirth.
* Fixed a door activator to "The Rift" which upon activation said "MR_Door_Altar" instead "Strange Altar".
* Arangaer, The Scribbled Scroll Balmora, will now react if you steal any of her items.

WIP 11

Morrowind Rebirth Changes
* Overhauled content in traders chests. There's now a very low chance that traders will offer rare magic weapons and excellent weapons/armor such as glass/ebony etc. This should give you, the player, more reason to
visit traders every now and then.
* You should now succeed using Speechcraft actions at least 25 % of the time, although your actions won't be as impactful as in vanilla MW.
* A successful bribe of a 1000 gold will now give + 25 disposition instead of + 50.
* A successful bribe of 100 gold will now give a + 8 disposition instead of 15.
* A successful bribe of 10 gold will now give a + 2 disposition instead of 5.
* You will now need to be rank 'Warlock" in the Mages Guild to use Magic Circles. Thanks to 'fdm1' for the tweaked script!

WIP 10

Morrowind Rebirth Additions
* The Red Mountain overhaul is now out of BETA including fixes, improvements and small additions such as 6.th house shrines, hidden treasures, and other exciting stuff!
* Ald-Maaryon, a small outpost in the northern Ashlands. A place to restock or just take a quick brake from your adventures.
* Two new Bug Shields. These shields are only available for sale in Ald-Maaryon.
* Added more clutter in Gnaar Mok.

Summer, in Sweden? N'wah.. n'wah..

Yes there's a new version in the works, and it's going to be released in about 2 weeks from now (give or take).

I do plan to make some mercantile tweaks, and more specifically increasing the mercantile skill for high end traders.

Cheers, and may the N'wah be with you.

Will you add more items? (armors, weapons, misc, etc.)
Like the Silt Strider Armor or maybe some armored robes?

Yes I want to include more items, but first I want to make sure that all the stuff already included are properly implemented into leveled-lists, to NPCs and into the gameworld.

Hello. I wanted to ask a question now as I was playing Morrowind. Cliff Racers generally have an AI problem in vanilla Morrowind which causes them to get stuck a lot. Is there any way to solve that?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Most likely not in vanilla MW, but perhaps it will be fixed in OpenMW.

Still waiting for 1.0 myself. It'll be exciting to see what people like you will do with it. And Morrowind's going to get even more fun when Project Outlander is combined with Rebirth.

Edit: Also, do you plan on adding a few new quests with all of the towns being expanded?

Probably not in the near future. I'm not skilled enough to create quests in the construction set.
