"Explore the island of Vvardenfell as you never have before, with a world built anew to be both alien and familiar to the Morrowind you knew before. New adventures await, with new exciting areas to see and explore, and new artifacts just waiting to be discovered. This is a complete overhaul for Morrowind, adding countless new details, weapons, armors and much more for you to see and do."

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. For those of you who want more information about the specific changes in this modification, please refer to the following changelog: http://www.moddb.com/mods/morrowind-rebirth/features/changelog7 , read the feature list, and/or watch the video below for a general overview.






New encounters and places to visit
Explore the Island of Vvardenfell once again, but keep in mind that things are not what they used to be. New packs of bandits and creatures have made it more difficult to travel throughout the wilderness, new dark cults have formed, and it's harder than ever before to survive in an already alien and hostile environment.

Rebuilt cities with loads of details

Cities are no longer empty shells with a few NPCs wandering about. Expect a massive increase in detail including new traders, NPCs, houses, shops, Inns and an overall feel that cities are actually "alive". Almost all cities and settlements, including for example Balmora, Seyda Neen, Caldera, Ebonheart, Vos  have been expanded or overhauled, without removing the charm of vanilla Morrowind.

New creatures

Encounter new vicious creatures such as the mighty Draugr Deathlord, the chilling Frost Monarch or the agile Ash Scorpion. With more than 20 new creatures to battle the Island of Vvardenfell is more diverse than ever.

New weapons, armor and misc items
Battle your way throughout Vvardenfell with a vast array of new weapons and armor, both normal ones that complement existing sets, and uniques'  that are far more powerful. A majority of the new items have been included in leveled lists, while some have been placed by hand, for a seamless experience.

New music, splashscreens and main menus
Included are a large number of new tracks, suited for both battles and for exploration, 11 new beautifully crafted splash screens, and two new main menu screens. These additons are optional, and not needed for the mod to function properly.

Better landscapes with less seams and floaters
In Morrowind there were a lot of empty flat areas and very little efficiency in use of space. With Rebirth I've tried to eliminate these issues, giving each area a unique look. There has also been an effort to eliminate all texture seams and floaters throughout the world.

Balance tweaks and bugfixes
By playing Rebirth you will notice fixes for a large number of floaters, clipping meshes, miss-aligned objects and script/text bugs. Rebirth also includes balance tweaks to game settings, spells, weapons, armor, misc items, merchants etc to make the game more balanced and thus more enjoyable.

New improved models for vanilla assets
Rebirth includes the largest and most up-to-date collection of mesh replacers, some which are only available in this modification.



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. Please use the "bugs" tab here on Nexus to report bugs and issues.

MGSO (not recommended) and Morrowind Rebirth

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: http://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/41102/? and handpick texture replacers from either morrowind nexus or morrowind modding history.
