Do not use "Morrowind Rebirth 3.4 - 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]" or the "Unofficial Morrowind Patch Project". Also note that "Texture Fix 2.0" and "Poorly Placed Object Fix v1.2", "Windows Glow", and "Animated Morrowind" are not compatible with Morrowind Rebirth.
- ”Morrowind Code Patch”: Morrowind.nexusmods.com
- You need the US/UK version of the game.
- This mod requires the expansion packs.
Here's the file structure when you've unpacked the files.
Copy the "Data Files" folder and paste it to one of the following locations (regular or steam). The latter won't apply if you have Morrowind installed elsewhere.
That should be it. Don’t forget to tick the box “Morrowind Rebirth 3.4" in “Data Files” on the start-up screen. Start a “New Game” in order to avoid dirty saves (or repair your old save-game using wrye mash). If you're using MGE or MGE XE, don't forget to re-run distant land to avoid potential landscape issues (see below).
“Morrowind Rebirth 3.4 - Racial Diversity – Addon”, "Morrowind Rebirth 3.4 - Morrowind Patch 1.6.5 Beta [Rebirth Edit]" and “Morrowind Rebirth 3.4 – Balmora Underworld - Addon” are not required for Morrowind Rebirth to run properly, but are recommended for the best experience. See the additional documentation for more info regarding these plugins.
The extras folder contains new music, new deskop icons, new splashscreens and two new main menus'. These are all optional and are not required to run the mod.
Common issues and how to solve them
I've got a warning telling me that "One or more plugins could not find the correct versions of the master files they depend on"
a) Ignore the warning. It's not something that will break your game in any way.
NPCs and statics are doubled
Doubling can be caused by a variety of reasons. Here are the two most common ones:
a) You are running two different versions of Morrowind Rebirth at the same time.
b) You are running an old save-game. You need to repair your save-game using Wrye Mash. Read this article: Moddb.com
I'm unable to access "data files" on the start-up menu
a) Remove the numbers from the esp. For example "3.4" in "Morrowind Rebirth 3.4".
b) Make sure you are running the exe as an "admin".
Trunks, logs etc in the Bitter Coast are "white" and doesn't have textures
a) Remove flora_bc_knee_01 to flora_bc_knee_04 and flora_bc_log_01 to flora_bc_log_02 found in Morrowind/Data Files/meshes/f.
