Post news Report content RSS feed [RELEASE] Morrowind Rebirth 2.5

Trancemaster and Fulgore presents Morrowind Rebirth 2.5! It's been a long time since the last update, but I'm sure you guys will feel that it's been worth the wait! Here down below are a "few" of the changes you can expect to see in 2.5. Since I'm very bad at keeping notes, you'll just have to live with that short list, I'm sure things will shine through as you play the mod. As always, let me know if there's any issues with this version and enjoy!

2.03 released!

I recommend everyone to start a new game with this version, there's just too much that can go wrong if you use an old save

Rebirth Fixes
* Netch Bull/Betty will now be displayed as "Ranched Bull/Betty" or "Wild Bull/Betty" depending where they are in the gameworld. This should make it a lot easier for the player to avoid the "wild" ones carrying disease.
* Some "topics" have been altered to fit with the changes done in Morrowind Rebirth. Topic "Mages Guild" will for example mention the new Mages Guild in Pelagiad.
* Adjusted the amount of gold you get from the "Mournhold Museum" when selling your artifacts. It's now based on the new values in Morrowind Rebirth.
* The activator "in_velothi_platform_shishi" had a duplicate in Seyda Neen, making it impossible to finish the Telvanni quest: "Shishi".
* Removed a duplicate of "Balyn Omarel's House" in Balmora. This to ensure that it won't break the quest: "Mephala's Quest".
* Increased the walking speed for the "Rockcrab", making it able to attack the player more effectivly if needed.
* "Hlaalu Alchemist", "Hlaalu Plaza" didn't close his shop during the night, like all the other shops do.
* The door to "Surane Leorianes House" in Caldera, were locked, but it shouldn't be.
* "Wolf Shield" had "call wolf" as constant effect, instead of "Cast when used".
* Clicking "Soot-Scale's" banner in "Ald-ruhn" will no longer give you a bounty.
- Changed name from "Wolf Shield" to "Ward of Solstheim".
* Included two missing meshes for "Cyrodiil" and "Empire map"
* Adamantium Dagger were misspelled as "Poisonous Adamantium Dagger".
* Increased the spacing between "potion effect" and "potion quality".
* Stats for "Anareren's Devil Tanto" now matches the "Devil Tanto".
* Included a missing mesh for the "Indoril Greaves".
* Removed duplicate doors that were causing issues.

Vanilla Fixes
* Deleted extra space between "Frost" and "Atronach" from the following entries: "atronach_frost_bs", "atronach_frost_bs00", and "atronach_frost_dead".
* Included a fix from "Gez", correcting a bad animation loop (causing a horrible noise) for the "Hunger".
* Included fixed kf-meshes by "EJ-12", to restore rat attack sound and slaughterfish sounds.
* Some NPC's in "Hlormaren, Underground" were set as friendly, but they should be hostile.
* Corrected several flora topics that gave the player the wrong information.
* "Andilu Drothan", "Vivec Foreign Quarter", will no longer sell "Skooma".
* "Apprentice's Mortar & Pestle" had the wrong icon and mesh.
* "Heifnir", "Dagon Fel", will no longer sell "Moon-Sugar".
* The "Shalk" had the wrong "Scream" sound assigned to it.
* "Rerlas" scrib and rat didn't drop any ingredients.
* Activator "Sound_pipebreak" used the wrong script.
* Corrected some issues with creature level-lists.
* Another thousand (more or less) floaters fixed.
* "Gravetar" had the wrong mesh and icon.

- And another 100 misc fixes that I don't care to add wanna play not read, right?

The city is growing..
Outpost Renius

Additions/Landscape changes
* Major landscape changes all around the island. Fixing seams, vertex shading, floaters, bleeders etc.
* Improved several areas in cities (Balmora, Vos, Suran, Ebonheart, Seyda Neen, Gnisis).
* Sadrith Mora Lighthouse + docks. Thanks to "Colt17" for the Lighthouse model.
* Vos Lighthouse. Thanks to "Colt17" for the Lighthouse model.
* Renius Outpost, by "Fulgore".
- "Somewhere in the Ascadian Isles, not too far from Pelagiad, on a hill overlooking Lake Amaya, there's an old small keep known as 'Outpost Renius'. Some months ago all contact was broken with the troops garrisoned there, a patrol was dispatched to check the situation. Everyone, from the pettiest prisoner to the highest ranking official, was found dead. After hearing sinister voices and steps, the place was sealed and abandoned. Do you have what it takes to venture inside and discover what happened to the people in there? Bring some torches with you if you want to explore the place and discover the lost Phnem Ancestral Tomb, one of the oldest and biggest tombs in Vvardenfell."
* "Balmora, Commercial District"
Six, yes six new shops located in the new redesigned commercial district in Balmora. By the courtesy of "Fulgore".
- Andrades's Tradehouse
- Dunmer Delicacies
- The Scribbled Scroll
- Tolmse Samori: Cheap Clothier
- Tralen: Weaponsmith
- Debent Carili: Alchemist
* Reduced the amount of statics near Dren Plantation, this due to some issues with lag.

Should work without any issues. I had a 560 ti before and it ran just fine, even with pretty high settings in MGEXE.

My long-term goal is to get this running in Linux with PlayOnLinux, but as OpenMW gets developed, we'll eventually have a native version of Morrowind and it should run GREAT.
Either way, I'm playing Rebirth

Think I'd rather play the Morrowind remake made from the Skyrim engine.

Executor-64- Nov 7 2013 replied:

when you say skyrim engine, you do realise that is the Fallout: New Vega engine, which is slightly changed Fallout 3 engine, which is slightly modified Oblivion engine.

Skyrim is not what elder scrolls is all about anyway, but it's engine is pretty damn old too (never mind the graphic)

Played 2.5 last night. The additions are brilliant!
After installing MGE and then Rebirth, I found some new visuals I didn't remember previously...
The New entry to Vivec is Amazing and very appropriate.
I love the trees and some of the new costumes...
Amazing job!

I received a few asset errors, but click ok and continued. Decent frame rates at 60 fps high and 10 fps in some areas, not sure why, but probably MGE related.

Glad you liked it! It's quite diffrent aye?

What types of errors did you get? Could you check your warnings log in your MW folder and send the text content in a PM?

booman Nov 11 2013 replied:

I'll have to start a new game again and then write down the errors.
By the way, I also tried Rebirth in Linux with PlayOnlinux (Wine) but it crashes with DirectX errors. Probably something to do with DirectX8. I'll keep messing with it because I really want it to run in Linux too.

Ah, but did you check if you had a warnings log in the mw folder? Then you don't have to write down the errors :)
