Hey guys! It has been some time since the last update, but as you will notice I've been quite busy. 4.9 is a massive update with changes all across the board. With the holidays coming up I wanted to release an update that felt really special, and I hope you'll all agree when you've tried it out. As always check the list down below for more details.
Also I want to thank you guys for voting Morrowind Rebirth into the top 100 in the yearly Mod of the Year Awards. Feel free to show your support and vote in the next and final stage as well. Thank you!
With that said I wish you all the best. Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! 2019 will be an awesome year for Morrowind Rebirth.
Morrowind Rebirth [Main]
Vemynal and Odrosal have undergone some changes..
Morrowind Rebirth Fixes
* Fixed an issue in Valas Ancestral Tomb and Thiralas Ancestral Tomb where ramps didn't have proper collsion, cusing the player to clip through the models and being unable to progress any further.
* Fixed an issue where Silver Staff of God's Frost, Silver Staff of God's Fire and Silver Staff of God's Shock had mixed up names and enchantments.
* Fixed an issue where a note in the quest 'Evidence of Conspiracy' was missing due to it clipping with the desk it's supposed to be placed upon.
