The Dwemer are extinct save for the (SPOILERS!!) one "last of a dying bread" you meet during the main quest. To add Dwemer to the game make the main story line's claim a lie in the game world.

Wow this looks great. I bought Morrowind for cheap during the Steam summer sale and have been looking for mods to play it with for the first time. Glad this will work with the Morrowind Sound & Graphics Overhaul. Keep up the impressive work.

Thanks! Just remember to turn of grass. You might have to play around a bit with the tree replacers to get it right, but it shouldn't be an issue.

Wow ... another great update to Rebirth v1.9! Downloading now, can't way to play it. You have put so much hard work into this game and the quality really shows. Makes my own Mod Seyda Neen & Census Office look bad, but it has inspired me to finish it. Like most creative people, I get bogged down by jumping from one project to another leaving unfinshed work in Alpha Stages.

Your Attention to detail is Amazing! Great Mod\Game!

Thanks for your kind words. Yah I've put loads of time into this mod, I really have. I wouldn't even dare to tell how many hours there's been. The main reason why I'm doing such a huge rework of the game is due the the fact that I used to jump between projects, instead I merged my work and now I can focus in any type of area. Oh and good luck with your mod! Looks like you put a lot of hours there too to be honest. Cheers!

I used to mod for Morrowind YEARS ago but I haven't for ages and ages. It's still a great game though and I'm always pleasantly surprised to still see people working on it even now. Great job with this mod and with the updates!

I tripled my Morrowind install folder with mods, and I don't think I have this one. I might clean it out, use just this and a few more "Fix" mods, no extra content really. Curious though, do you suggest other mods going good with this one? Great work by the way.

Hi Brad.

I'd go for a clean install + some fixes, like the unofficial morrowind patch and the code patch. Otherwise I love the LGNPC project. You can find all the modules here if you haven't got them already: Lgnpc.org. I also like these:

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

Planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com

All adds to the depth of the game making dialogue less generic.

Hope you like em.

Cheers!

I'm really big in to modding, Oblivion, Fallout 1-3, New Vegas, Skyrim, all have at least 10+ game altering mods. It adds so much more to each game, especially if you've already beaten it. But there are issues you can have with certain mods, like my Fallout 3 is extremely unstable, I gotta go back through and take out the mods that are doing the instability. So hence me asking which mods go good with this mod considering this one does a lot and I already have a highly altered Morrowind. So thank you for the quick list.

Ya I have all those game u mentioned and its a hell modding Fallout. New Vegas doesn't work for me at all anymore, guess I had too many mods. Too bad since its a great game.

Let me know if there's anything else you need help with!

Ok, Morrowind failed loading because of a texture. So here is what I am going to do right now cause im bored. Deleted my folder, copied over my clean backup folder. Going to Install some of the mods fresh. Here is a screen shot of the mods I am using. Oi46.tinypic.com

Edit: Also, using the Nexus Mod Manager to install mods. Except for mods which install via an exe.

I want to try and work on Textures and the game its self before I really move on to a lot of content. Even then, textures I can live without even though Meshes I would prefer not to because a rounded edge (more rounded?) is better then an octagon. The other thing I would love to try and work on would be movement and actions. I like Oblivions, Skyrims, Fallout 3 etc's way of handling things. Like for example Opening doors, talking to people, readying weapons etc. Since those later games combined and streamlined the keys and actions its easier in the later games. Morrowind is still rather eclectic when it comes to actions, not to mention something like opening / talking are two separate actions in Morrowind where in later games they were 1 action or 1 button. Curious if there are any mods to hard-alter the actions and their keys because changing hotkeys only works so much.

I get this a lot: Failed to load Snowflake: Meshes\BM_Snow_01.nif. I think some mesh packs mess with this... I might try taking out the mesh packs and check.

Nevermind, this helped. Also helped with a texture load error I was getting after that, just used the same logic.

Ya its a common error, glad you found a way to solve it. Btw you might wanna check out the mesh pack 1.1 that I've just uploaded (might not be authorised yet though), since you talked about rounded meshes :)

Also check the Morrowind Code Patch (http://morrowind.nexusmods.com/mods/19510/) and Morrowind Graphics Extender (http://morrowind.nexusmods.com/mods/41102). I think those will let you use macro and stuff.

The Code Patch wont work for me, it tells me it cant find my exe or some BS like that, then when I move either the Patches exe or my games exe, it fails. I got the game running though. Also heard the MGE just makes the game more unstable then it needs to be, though I like the the whole Morrowind HD 2012 thing. If I had a more capable PC I would completely play that.
