I saw this on rock paper shotgun earlier today. I was really excited but sadly, they at verion 0.9 I think that apart from the geometry and stuff, not much else is there (quests, etc). Definitely something to watch for, though!

Now Skyrim will actually be a good game.

Is this Morrowind, the original game, but adapted to the Skyrim engine?

Yeah, the FAQ says this:

"3. Q: Will Skywind be complete with quests, or will it only feature the Morrowind landscape?

A: As of now, Skywind mostly just consists of landscape and static meshes, but we are currently working on getting all of the quests, npcs, weapons, creatures, etc. working correctly, and they should all be available by the final release. Remember though that we have a limited team, and if you want to see a particular feature faster then join and help work on it."

Not to poo-poo it or anything -- I think it looks great, and my first reaction was a sort of stunned amazement -- but there is a big difference between "mostly landscape and static meshes" and a living, interactive world full of characters, weapons, creatures, and quests. There is a lot of work to be done yet.

Too bad it still has the Skyrim gameplay.

So it would be the Morrowind setting, characters, and quests, but with Skyrim mechanics? I'm not sure I understand how that will work, since Morrowind was so different. At first I thought this was just a remake of Morrowind, with better graphics, but if it's Morrowind in a Skyrim framework -- not just graphics but game mechanics and all -- then that's very different.

I assumed/hoped it was Morrowind with the Skyrim graphics/engine.

Isn't there already a Morrowind mod for Morrowind that pimps out the graphics? Is this just applying Morrowind style visuals to Skyrim? I can't say that I understand the goals of this mod.

Yeah, I'm a little confused, too.

It's a skyrim mod, so it makes morrowind using skyrim engine. The morrowind mod you're referring to is just a visual mod for morrowinds old engine.

So it's Morrowind content, but Skyrim mechanics? Wouldn't it lose something in the translation? For instance, in Morrowind, you had to explore everything on foot and figure things out yourself, and quests could be ambiguous. In Skyrim, it was (like most modern games) "go here, do this" -- pointers, compass, detailed directions, etc. Also, the levelling up and skill systems worked very differently in Morrowind, and there were a lot more magic options. Wouldn't they lose something, squeezing all that breadth into the Skyrim mechanics, which were considerably simpler?

Instead of posting all the screenshots in the screenshots thread I will posts some more here:








Used many different mods together, followed instruction about adding voice, but do not get voice at all, however music is nice (original Morrowind music). Have an error some places where wall turns blue, this happens if indoors in building or cave and go close to wall.
Some textures seems a bit off.

Enemies missing, sow far have not encountered any Dreugh, however as it is still in early state and they are such a small team this could take time.

Some quests as I said in the screenshot thread is able to complete (if did not would not be able to explorer the world).

Fps does drop very much around Ebonheart, I do believe I had some trouble with this in normal Morrowind too (with a much older computer ), but not this much, going from 30 fps sow low as 5 fps.
I do have many mods installed sow maybe if I did uninstall some I would get better fps, however for most part it keeps around 30 fps, some smaller drops now and then.

Edit: Says it is Alpha version, sow just gone give it time to get improved on.
