Introduction

Morrowind is the third game in the series called the ”Elder Scrolls”. You might be familiar with the previous games in the series, such as "Arena" and "Daggerfall", but most certainly you're well aware of Morrowind's sequels: "Oblivion" and "Skyrim". Morrowind hit the store shelves back in 2002 and became an instant hit among the entire gaming community. It was not only embraced due to its stunning graphics of that time but also for the intriguing storyline, the immersive gameworld and its depth. Some RPG enthusiasts also regard Morrowind to be one of the best role -playing games of all time, sharing the title with other fantastic games such as ”Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn”, ”Neverwinter Nights” and ”Dragon Age:Origins”.

The game takes place on the island of Vvardenfell, which is a province in Morrowind. Due to the nature of the game you can actually do anything you like, without getting punished for it. Perhaps that's also one reason to why it's still so popular, over 10 years after its release. Morrowind is a great game, of that can be no doubt.

"Rebirth" sprung to life in 2007 with my mod-series - ”New Cities Project”, which basically can be described as town- expansions of different cities such as Seyda Neen, Caldera and Gnisis. As this project went on, I had some sort of revelation - why not merge all the plugins, and create a massive overhaul of sorts? What you see here is the result of that process. A full concept modification, or overhaul if you will, that will transform Vvardenfell into something very special. Down below you can view some of the changes, but expect to see a lot more in-game.

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 written information about the changes in this modification, please refer to the following changelog: Moddb.com and/or watch this video for a quick general overview: Moddb.com

New encounters and places to visit
Explore the Island of Vvardenfell once again, but keep in mind that things have changed. New packs of bandits and villans have made it harder 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 enviroment.

Rebuilt cities with loads of details

Cities are no longer an empty shell with a few NPCs wandering about. Discover how things might have turned out if the developers had more time to improve on their creation. 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

Draw your weapon against new vicious creatures such as the mighty Draugr Deathlord, the chilling Frost Monarch or the charming Daedra Seducer. Beware, these foes are not to be taken lightly.

New weapons, armor and misc items

Battle your way through Vvardenfell with a vast new array of weapons and armor, both normal ones that complement sets already present in-game and uniques' that are far more powerful.

New music & new main menu

Included are 1 hour of new music, 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.

Do you have a problem with floaters, seams or just that some areas look and feel ”boring”? Well no more. With Rebirth I've tried to eliminate these issues, giving each area a unique look without overworking it. There's also far less seams and floaters which obviously will make the gameworld a better place to live in.

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

F.A.Q

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

Morrowind Graphic and Sound Overhaul and Morrowind Rebirth
Is Morrowind Rebirth compatible with MGSO? That depends! There's 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. Now keep in mind that you need to tick the "custom mod" option for each flora region. You also need to deactivate all grass. 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, included in the Morrowind Rebirth download package. 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 four 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" and "Animated Morrowind". That should be it.

Old Save Games
A lot of people ask me about save game compatibility between patches. It's actually not a problem if you use "Wrye Mash". So what's Wrye Mash and why should you get it? Here's a short description from the uesp wiki "Wrye Mash is a general purpose utility for managing and repairing mods and savegames. Currently it is the only tool that systematically prevents NPC doubling. It combines multiple mod-management capabilities making it one of the most strongly recommended utilities for both modders and players". Download the program here:http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Tes3Mod:Wrye_Mash, and be sure to check the readme too (which can be found at the same page).

Performance
Morrowind might be an old game but this doesn't mean that your old laptop can run Morrowind Rebirth without any issues. In some areas such as Balmora you can get huge FPS drops if you don't have a decent computer. If you're using a lot of texture replacers it might be a good idea to remove some of these to increase the overall performance. If you're using MGE or MGEXE you might want to reduce the distant statics detail, remove some shaders or skip the fancy fog effects.

Installation and requirements
Please read this article if you are new to mods: 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 2.81 - 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" are not compatible with Morrowind Rebirth.

Glad to see 2.8 is out, I was holding off playing 2.7 because I could not for the life of me figure out how to get both the mod and the patch mod working (I'm Wrye illiterate).

Question though, I noticed there were huge mesh seams in the land around Pelagiad and Vivec in 2.7. Were those an issue that got fixed, or is that some weird error from a mod conflict I have no idea about?

It is possible. Just download the entire package, then head over to the "Extras" folder. From there it should be pretty straight forward. Copy the "Music" folder and paste it in Morrowind/Data Files (wherever that is).

Cheers

Some, but not all. Dragonscale and Dreugh are still just cuirass, shield, and helm, but Indoril now has greaves, Imperial Chain now has everything but a shield, and shields were introduced to Adamantium and Royal Guard.

subtle changes making Morrowind a completely fresh experience
I wandered around for a short while, not having played the game for years and I couldn't quite put my finger on it; but it just felt as if though the whole game-world had changed

simply amazing accomplishment
