The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an epic, open-ended single-player game where you create and play any kind of character you can imagine. Be the noble hero embarking on an epic quest, or an insidious thief rising to leadership of his guild. Be a malevolent sorcerer developing the ultimate spell of destruction, or a reverent healer searching for the cure to a plague. Your actions define your character, and your gameplay changes and evolves in response to your actions. Confront the assassins' guild, and they take out a contract on you. Impress them, and they try to recruit you instead. No two sagas are the same in the world of Morrowind.

Gameplay is further extended with the inclusion of The Elder Scrolls Construction Set (bundled with the game). This powerful tool is being used to create the entire game, and will also allow players to modify and add to Morrowind in any way they see fit. Change character or creature attributes and skills, introduce new weapons or dungeons into the game, or create entire new worlds to explore. Consequently mods for this game are everywhere, ranging in size from mere characters to fully themed packs! So should you ever want to expand on your gaming experience, be sure to scope out just a few of the amature modifications available and in existence!

Which are the worst balance changes in Rebirth?

At long last the final version of 5.0: Part 2 is ready for you to enjoy! [changes in Part 1 can be found here: click me] It's been a long wait, I know, but I'm sure you'll all think it has been worth it. With this update comes a plethora of changes, including an overhaul of the Labour Town District in Balmora, an overhaul of Molag Mar, and an overhaul of Ald Velothi. Additionally dozens of bugs were squashed, quality of life improvements have been made and new items, weapons and armor have appeared in the gameworld. I really hope you'll enjoy this update. Have fun!

[RELEASE] Morrowind Rebirth v 5.0

Imperial Shield

Morrowind Rebirth [Main]

Morrowind Fixes

* Renamed banners for several traders in Sadrith Mora that had banners with "Dunmer" (Dunmer Trader, Dunmer Weapons/Armor etc) in their name, even though none of the traders are Dunmer.
* Fixed dozens of spawnpoints for sea-critters that were either placed on land, in the air, below ground or inside geometry.

Morrowind Rebirth Fixes

* Fixed an issue where Hallfred, located in Berandas Keep Bottom level, wasn't set to have 0 health. He was intended to be dead, and thus had no fight, flee, alarm or hello-data.
* Fixed an issue where the legs on the candle 'Light_De_Candle_08' was set to use an alpha channel (transparent), even though the material was iron.
* Fixed a potential issue with Bolvyn Venim where you were unable to win honorably against him in the Vivec Arena duel.
* Fixed an issue where the Duke's Guard Boots and Duke's Guard Greaves had parts that were clipping badly with the body.
* Fixed an issue where the glove Olaf's Fist had no wrist object attached to it, causing it to clip with the wrist.
* Fixed an issue where Ababael Timsar-Dadisun mecantile skill was mistakenly changed from 100 to 60 (should be master trainer).
* Fixed issues where the potion-label UVs were not aligned properly, and were therfore missing the golden metal details.
* Fixed an issue where the enchantment for Stormkiss was set to 'cast on use' instead of 'cast when strikes'.
* Fixed an issue where one of Kragh Blight-Heart's spells, Kragh's Bane, had several effects set to self instead of 'on touch'.
* Fixed an issue where one of Dagoth Ur's spells, Curse of Dagoth, had effects that were set 'on self' instead of 'on touch'.
* Fixed an issue where the size of Slaughersharks made them get stuck here and there. I've reduced the size from 1.8 to 1.4.
* Fixed an issue where one part of the enchantment for the Madstone amulet was set 'on touch' instead of 'on self'.
* Fixed an issue where the spell Elemental Shield had an effect that were set 'on touch' instead of 'on self'.
* Fixed an issue where the spell Fortify Luck was set 'on touch' instead of 'on self'.
* Fixed an issue where 'Key to Valas Ancestral Tomb' didn't actually unlock anything.
* Fixed an issue where a forge in Tel Mora was almost completely buried in a rock.
* Fixed an issue where the entrance to 'Shal' was partially covered by a rock.
* Fixed an issue where the potion Spell Absorption: Exclusive used the wrong icon.
* Fixed an issue where the potion Night-Eye: Exclusive used the wrong icon.
* Fixed an issue where the potion Shadow: Standard used the wrong icon.
* Fixed an issue where Potion of Telekinesis had no icon.
* Fixed incorrect pathgrids.

New models for unique items

Hilbongards Hammer [Rebirth specific], Tsiya's Skooma Pipe

Morrowind Rebirth Changes

* The souls of Lustidrike, Kragh Blight-Heart, Baeragoth, The Udyrfrykte, Dagoth Velos, Dagoth Ganel, Dagoth Mulyn, Ghost of Kanit Ashurnisammis, Ghost of Galos Heleran, Dulk, Krish, The Swimmer and Draugr-Lord Aesliip now all count as grand, and can be used for constant effect enchanting. Note: The soul values for the previously mentioned creatures didn't follow the new system for enchanting that was introduced a few patches ago, where only unique creatures had souls good enough for CE-enchanting.
* All potions have been rebalanced making most of them more useful (mainly the cheaper ones). For example a Fire Resistance: Bargain has gone from 5% for 8 seconds to 10% for 15 seconds, and a Feather: Bargain 5 pts for 8 secs to 25 pts for 15 seconds.
* You'll now get the full price for selling artifacts to the Mournhold Museum. Additionally if you steal an artifact from the museum you'll get a matching bounty (previously you'd get a bounty based on the vanilla values).
* Dozens of cheap and bargain potions were very difficult to come by due to ONLY being available in random-loot. I've added these potions to chests where it makes sense for them to be available.
* Dwemer Chests are now more likely to hold Dwemer Bolts, Dwemer misc items and Dwemer Coins. This also means that they are less likely to be completely empty.
* Added (or re-added) more Stoneflowers along Lake Amaya, since there were so few of them. Based on Ajira's description they should be quite common in that area.
* Added (or re-added) interiors to Wolverine Hall guard towers, plus you can now reach the rampart using a new entrance.
* Added more descriptive texts as to what kind of item you need when you want to mine for minerals or harvest muck.
* Potions of Burden, Paralysis, and Silence have been removed from leveled-lists and will thus no longer appear as random loot.
* You'll now have to get a bit closer to creatures such as Shalks, Foragers, Alits etc before they attack you.
* The imperial tavern "The Silver Barrel" has been moved from its old location outside Khuul to Fort Buckmoth.
* Travel Agents have been given a new class, "Travel Agent", and will now explain their trade in the "my trade" topic.
* Nolus Atrius has been given a new class, "Magistrate", and now explains his trade in the "my trade" topic.
* Mages Guild guides will now explain the requirements for using the Magic Circles.
* Archer Targets can now be used for practice, in the same way as dummies.
* Ashpits now act as containers, and have a chance to hold Gravedust.
* Daedra Heart drop chance has been increased from 25 % to 50 %.
* Dremora Archers are now less likely to run out of arrows.
* Wickwheat Muffin now restores health instead of fatigue.

Pelagiad 1

Pelagiad 2

Made some small changes to Pelagiad

Morrowind Rebirth Additions

* Added two bedrooms to the South Wall Cornerclub in Balmora. Previously there were no beds for members except for the one you could rent.
* Reworked Dralasa Nithryon Shop in Balmora with more clutter and a bedroom where Dralasa can sleep.
* Reworked Fadril's Shack in Seyda Neen with more living space and a bed for Fadril to sleep in.

* Major visual changes to Omani Manor exterior.

Ules and Omani Manor

Ules and Omani Manor

Balmora - Labour Town District Overhaul
A large overhaul of the poor district of Balmora, also known as 'Labour Town'.

Balmora - Labor Town District

Molag Mar Overhaul
The open canton part of Molag Mar has recieved a complete overhaul, including a new tavern, a new trader, new houses, more clutter and npcs.

Molag Mar [WIP]

Vos Overhaul
A rather large overhaul of Vos and the surrounding landscape making the town less grid-like and the landscape more organic and natural looking.


Ald Velothi Overhaul
Another overhaul of the overhaul. I wasn't really happy with the previous iteration, so I decided to spice things up with more clutter and more detailing including a small, albeit semi-destroyed wall surrounding the settlement.


Caldera Mine Overhaul
A small overhaul of the area near the mine entrance, making it look like there is a mining operation going on.

Caldera Mine

Dunmer Strongholds Overhaul
Tons of clutter has been added to the exteriors of some Dunmer Strongholds. This overhaul covers the following ruins:
- Hlormaren (5.0: Part 1)
- Andasreth (5.0: Part 1)
- Falasmaryon (5.0: Part 1)
- Berandas (5.0: Part 1)
- Telasero (5.0: Part 2)

Landscape tweaks
Over the years I've recieved feedback that various areas of the game look a bit flat compared to vanilla. With this update I've begun to remedy this issue, starting with The Ascadian Isles, and some areas around Seyda Neen, Caldera, Vos and Balmora. This will be an ongoing project, so expect to see more changes in the future.

Player home tweaks

- Caldera Darkstone Manor cost from 75.000 gold to 50.000.
- Balmora River's Edge cost from 50.000 gold to 20.000.
- Vivec Strider's Rest cost from 50.000 gold to 20.000.
- Sadrith Mora Fungai Hill cost from 35.000 gold to 15.000.
- Ald'Ruhn Arwin cost from 30.000 gold to 10.000 gold.

- You can no longer pick/break the locks of the player homes using lockpicks, magic or scrolls. You need the correct key provided to you by the real-estate agent.

Spell Tomes
You can now find 6 different Spell Tomes corresponding to the 6 Magic Schools in Morrowind: Alteration, Restoration, Mysticism, Conjuration, Destruction and Illusion. Each book will
work like a scroll, and will be destroyed when used. The difference is that the bonuses of these tomes will last for 1000 in-game hours, meaning pretty much indefinitely. As for the bonuses
each book will provide a 10 skill bonus to its respective school of magic.

Spells (base cost)

* General fixes and improvements to 100+ models.
* General fixes and improvements to 100+ icons.
Note: The icons in Morrowind have always been pretty much all over the place. Most icons in the same categories are not tilting (not saying they have to, but weapons are especially bad) in the same direction, making it difficult to get a clear picture of the stuff you are looking for. For example axes generally tilt to the right, swords generally to the left, while some don't tilt at all. On top of that Rebirth includes a ton of new meshes for hundreds of items, making some icons not really representative of what they now look like. All in all I hope that the new icons make things a bit easier on the eyes, while also representing the actual look of the item behind it.

I wonder why morrowind is listed as a first person shooter on moddb?
You can see it on the style box on the right hand side of the page...

Am I the only person who noticed that this game is listed as a First Person Shooter while all the other Elder Scrolls games are listed as RPGs?

Weird, I don't think even DX games are listed as FPSes...

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Morrowind is a full RPG, but was listed under First Person Shooter when it was released in 2002?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

is this compatible with saved games? (un modded)

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Yes... un modded save games should work with Rebirth. Going from one version build to another, may cause doubling in NPC's. But you can always use Wrye Bash!

morrowind will always be better than oblivion and skyrim for me. i just enjoyed the story and world more.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+13 votes

Morrowind has always held more promise, with more mods, moddler resources, and more potential for improvement. I never cared that much for the Nerevarine Prophecy. But loved the variety in architecture, landscapes, and plants.

Oblivion was a very smooth game, very polished, and complete world. I had a hard time deciding what to add to the game outside of a small house, castle, or alternate beginning. Oblivion was very generic, offering the same buildings, ruins, and interiors over and over again. It wasn't until MorrOblivion and other mods that the new buildings were offered in the game. If fact, the game should be called Cyrodiil instead of Oblivion, and there should only be one gate instead of ten.

Skyrim offered a huge leap in graphics, offered the same smooth game play, finished world. I had to upgrade from XP to Win7 though, just to enjoy the game. The same with Fallout 3, which played very clunky on XP but enjoyable on Win7. Fallout Vegas was a much better game that the Fallout 3. Back to Skyrim, I really disliked the transition from exterior world to interior buildings, and felt like the black square behind the door was annoying. But overall, Skyrim has great game play, smooth graphics, and a very polished finished world.

Elder Scrolls Online, I felt cheated with the graphics. If they had used the Morrowind Engine with a Graphic Replacer... the game would have looked much better. Or if they had used the Oblivion or Skyrim Engine ... it would have had a more polished look. I enjoyed discovering the world of Tamriel, and all the different styles in architecture. But found the begining mission from Daggerfall to Betony, (or the Orc's version of it) very forced and heavy handed. I was hoping for more open ended, free travel, straight from the start of the game. And not be railroaded down a certain path until I reached a high level to free travel.

I haven't played Fallout 4 yet, but I'm guess I have to upgrade my computer from Win7 to Win10 with a better graphic's card. Just to enjoy the game. I havn't heard how it plays on older computers.

You failed to mention quite a few shortcomings of Skyrim particularly it's highly unoriginal story, its lack of colour, and very dumbed down and rpg feature stripped gameplay. It was more like an action-adventure game than an RPG.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

True, but Oblivion was at least a close second to it.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

Nope, Skyrim is better than Oblivion :P

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

God no, skyrim was even further dumbed down.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

It's story was highly cliche and unoriginal, the nord land is boring full of a drunken warrior race there's nothing interesting about them at all. So much grey, white and brown dominating the colour scheme which looks so boring to the eyes.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Ok, it's been 3 years since that comment, and I actually got around re-replaying Oblivion in that time, and I must agree, Oblivion is better than Skyrim.
