This is a texture replacer that gives Morrowind a watercolored look.

Every single texture in the game is covered, making this mod an easy drag and drop replacement for the whole game plus the expansions as well as many mods. Since this mod is based on the original textures everything looks harmonic and consistent, just a bit more stylized to hide the blurriness of the great but dated originals.

You can find many screenshots here: 

v2 changes:
With version 2.0 the mod bomes quite a bit more polished. The watercolor effect on the textures is now a bit smoother, less grainy. Also shapes are more defined now and details like ornaments or face details are now much nicer. The more defined shapes also make the stylized, watercolorish look more noticable from a distance. In the screenshots all this doesnt show very well, but in game the differences should be obvious.
The texture sizes are still the same like in the previous version, the performance wont change.

Mod compatibility patches:
To make other mods visually fit with Morrowind Watercolored, you can find a number of patches for other mods on the nexus download page.

NOTICE: With v2 the old patches dont fit that well anymore, so they will need to be remade. This might take a while so if your need a patch quickly, feel free to download the patches for the old version in the meanwhile, at the bottom of the downloads list.

Many of those patches are made by the kind community members Lucas9 and wildbane. Thanks guys!
