Morrowind Rebirth is a total overhaul for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with the aim to enhance the gameplay by balancing certain aspects of the game, and by giving the player more to see and do. Morrowind Rebirth is the result of thousands of hours of modding, and is still a work in progress.

Installation and requirements

Please read the article "Installation & requirements", which can be found here:

Bugs and other issues

It's important that you, the players, provide me with feedback and support. Without it I might not be able to track down bugs introduced by Morrowind Rebirth. You're also welcome to report issues found in vanilla Morrowind. Post your bug-reports in the forum section here: at Nexus: or send me a personal message at either site.

Morrowind Rebirth and MGSO

I do not recommend MGSO for two reasons: 1) It's outdated 2) It's unoptimized. MGSO includes a heap of stuff including textures that are inconsistent, and meshes that are so badly optimized that they can cause serious fps-issues. This is especially troublesome when using Morrowind Rebirth along with MGSO, since Rebirth adds a ton of stuff to the gameworld. One object without proper collision or with too many polys won't cause any harm, but multiply that by ten and you are bound to experience massive framedrops.

Rebirth on the other hand includes a large number of mesh replacers that are, in most cases, optimized. These meshes are also up-to-date, ensuring that you, the player, will have the best looking models possible without causing a ton of hitching. With that said I wouldn't recommend MGSO. The proper way to play Rebirth with the best possible fidelity is to use MGE XE: and handpick texture replacers from either morrowind nexus or morrowind modding history.

Morrowind Rebirth and OpenMW

Morrowind Rebirth is currently compatible with OpenMW, and should be compatible with it's multiplayer component, too. Note that OpenMW is still a work in progress so changes in future releases might cause compatibility issues.

Morrowind Rebirth and Tamriel Rebuilt

At this moment I do not recommend using Tamriel Rebuilt with Morrowind Rebirth. While TR is an amazing mod, it doesn't really work well with Morrowind Rebirth due to several reasons. First of all the balance in TR is based on vanilla, thus every item, weapon, armor, rewards etc will not go well with the balance changes in Rebirth. Another thing that will prove to be troublesome is the fact that Morrowind Rebirth comes with a lot of new models replacing rocks, trees, furniture etc. This causes issues like floaters, bleeding objects etc in the mainland, where many models are based on the footprint of vanilla models.

I heartly recommend getting TR, but play it in a separate installation just to be on the safe side. Follow this guide on how to create multiple copies of Morrowind:

Which are the worst balance changes in Rebirth?

Hey guys! It wasn't my intention to upload an update this soon, but it has come to my attention that there are some issues with MR that I really need to fix right away (one breaking the main quest). Along with the fixes come a few small additions, such as an overhaul to Maar Gan and a new Dwemer ruin near Vos (exterior only atm). I know it's not optimal releasing an update so soon after 4.5, but I feel it's in everyone's interest.

Morrowind Fixes
* Ergnir in Guild of Fighters, Ald'Rhun no longer wanders of from his workplace leaving his wares unchecked.
* Fixed an issue where a banner outside Bildren Areleth's shop in Tel Aruhn made if difficult to enter.

Maar Gan overhaul

* Fixed an issue where Llensi Verilnith in Ald Redaynia was offering trader services even though she had nothing to offer.
* Fixed an issue where the large boat in Vivec Entrance had a door that wasn't going anywere and should have been locked.
* Fixed an issue where Tolmse Hlarayn, the owner of Dunmer Delicacies, were set as a drillmaster instead of a trader.
* Fixed an issue where travel markers in Telvanni Vaults, Vivec, teleported you to the wrong locations.
* Fixed an issue where the Shockbite Battle Axe enchantment was set to 'self' instead of 'touch'.
* Fixed an issue where Divine Lightning weapons enchantment was set to 'self' instead of 'touch'.
* Fixed an issue where Righteous Fire weapons enchantment was set to 'self' instead of 'touch'.
* Fixed an issue where the Wild Ash Bull Netch/Wormmouth had white blood instead of red blood.
* Fixed a trapdoor in The Black Goblet, Suran, that was inaccessable even after unlocking it.
* Fixed an issue where the wooden knife handle mesh was pointing to the incorrect texture path.
* Fixed pathgrid issues in the Deadlands (Still somewhat wonky though).
* Fixed issues which made it impossible to get out of "The Rift".
* Fixed a ton of minor issues like floaters and bleeding objects.
* Fixed an issue where the Hlaalu Royal Towershield had no icon.
* Fixed an issue where the 'Note to Amaya' wasn't obtainable.
* Fixed scaling issues on the Ebonheart dock mesh.
* Fixed pathgrid issues in Hla Oad.

Morrowind Rebirth Changes
* Changed the amount of random raw adamantium in ore veins from 1 to 3, making it much less likely that you are left with nothing spawning.
* Sixth House Shield has been renamed to "House Dagoth Tower Shield". It doesn't share the textures of other Sixth House items.
* Elbert Nermarc, the enchanter in Mournhold, no longer has an unlimited supply of grand soulgems.
* Phnem Necropolis, Pathway is now a bit easier to navigate due to improved lighting values.
* Eating an ingredient now increases your Alchemy skill from 0.25 points to 0.50 per use.

None of them are related to Morrowind Rebirth. I assume you are using MGSO? Get the fix for furn_de_table_03 here:

Hi, Morrowind Fanatic here

So I've started to mod my morrowind with Morrowind rebirth 4.6 since I saw it at steam and I absolutely love it (best mod so far). But, every time I go to a certain place ( Just below the red mountain) my game crashes. The reason for this is because, " Creature "cliff racer_blighted00000007E" has no animation groups. Morrowind will crash!

I have no idea how this keeps happening even though I played this with this mod for 2 months now and I hate to uninstall it just because of some cliffr problem.

I am open for suggestion and willing to cooperate to solve this problem. Thank you!

P.S. I really need to finish all my side quests

Hmm.. sounds like a corrupted save-game or something like that. Could you post your list of mods, the content of your warnings.log (found in the mw folder) and have you installed any mods during the playthrough?


Reply Good karma+2 votes

oh, which reminds me, I did have a saved game which I continued to play before installing the mod of yours, maybe it's not compatible?

Recently, only the Morrowind rebirth 4.6 but before that, mods like Morrowind Overhaul, Morrowind Code Patch, & Exe Optimizer (not sure what the last one is tbh)

Thanks for replying!

So you mean that you added Rebirth in the middle of a playthrough? If yes that's problematic as you should never add new mods during a playthrough if you don't know what you are doing.
