    Regarding the issue of people who are unable to install this mod: my mod is simply a texture replacer like most texture replacers out there. The only type of file that this mod contains is dds file which is texture format that will replace the original ones from Morrowind's BSA upon installing to the correct folder. After installing, the "Textures" folder from my file should be in your Morrowind's "Data files" folder. It's very simple and basic to install this mod, if you are unable to use this mod, it means other texture mods wouldn't work too, this is a problem on your end, not this mod. I've been modding Morrowind Steam version for ages without issues and many people have installed this mod without issues too.

    I've been searching around and this seems to be a problem for some Morrowind setup. It's recommended that you should manually modding the game yourself, install Morrowind Patch Project before modding and use Mlox to sort load order. It's important that you should install MCP and set up your game correctly, it's not MY fault that you refuse to make your Morrowind moddable and playable.

    Since this mod replace pretty much every texture in game, it's also strongly recommended to install this mod before installing other texture mods to avoid compatibility issue.

      Thank you for your mod!

      Just one question: Why are you not writing in the description that the Texture Folder just need to be copied in the Data Files Folder of the game?

    A couple of things...

    Do not use NMM to install this mod; NMM wasn't designed for Morrowind mods, and will not always install correctly. Manual installation is not complicated, and much information on how to do it exists on the Internet.

    The "Textures" folder from this mod needs to be put into the "Data Files" folder, not into the "Textures" folder, inside your Morrowind directory.

    If, after installing this mod, you don't see the textures in your game, consider two things:

    - That these are subtle differences, upgrades to the resolution of the textures, and therefore won't make any drastic changes. This mod takes the vanilla textures and makes them clearer;

    - That the mod does work, so if it isn't showing up in your game (after considering the above), check to make sure the files are installed in the correct location. You can open the archive of this mod and the "Texures" folder in your "Data Files" directory and see if you can find the files from the archive inside the "Textures" folder. If not, that is where they should be; you can copy/paste them directly into the "Textures" folder. It is also a good idea to re-run distant lands after installing exterior textures.

    And, as always, it is a good idea to read any "sticky" posts at the beginning of a mod's comments; they are stickied for a reason, and you can often find clarification and/or answers there.

    This is an awesome mod. Endorsed.

    I am curious how exactly you extracted the uncompressed textures from the Construction Set. I am interested, because I would like to make some vanilla-inspired textures for use in a mod that I am working on, and uncompressed textures would be much more useful for that purpose.

    My CS (which is the Steam version) only seems to allow me to export (non-artwork) records from an ESP/ESM. Am I just not seeing a specific button or drop-down menu in the CS for extracting the uncompressed vanilla textures? Or is there an online guide describing how to do this? Thanks for any help you can give.

    Part 1 or Part 2, probably part 2, seems to get rid of my quest index option in the journal

      I believe this is an old bug from previous version, try to delete tx_menubook_bookmark.dds in your textures folder.

    Thanks for this so needed work!

    This plus MGE XE makes Morrowind feels like revisiting a proper restored piece of art!

    Truly an excellent mod, however I've encountered an issue where the mask of the Indoril helm appears to stretch vertically across the whole head of the helmet, otherwise, this is exactly what I was looking for.

      Are you using HiRez Armors - Native Styles or any other armor replacers?

      Not that I'm aware of, none one of the mods I have installed appear to effect armour meshes.

      Does your Morrowind/meshes/a folder contain any files?

    Something that could be done is allow better clothes users to use this mod, say having the clothes and armor as separate files, so that we may choose to use BC and still enjoy your other hd textures.
    still if allowing the incompatibility to persist still allows for this and simply uses BC low rez textures I think I can make do, long as it does nothing else wonky.

      Doesn't Better Clothes use completely different texture files with different names?

      Yes. Use Darknut's Better Clothes Textures.

      You can still use better clothes with this mod, what I'm trying to tell people is that better clothes use their own low quality texture which is why the higher quality ones from this mod won't take effect on that. It's just a special case I want to let people know since most similar mods would use vanilla texture instead of their own.
