"This mod replaces the generic, copy-pasted guards of Morrowind with different variations.

- SkoomaPro


SkoomaPro's (somewhat obscure) Guard Diversity mod was, hands down, one the best "guard diversity" mods that I have tried. However, there was room for a few minor improvements:
• I added a female-only "leveled list" to the guards in Tel Mora. The reason for this is that the people in Tel Mora say there are no men there, including the male Tel Mora guards...
• Imperial Guards in the game were labled just "Guard", while other guards such as Telvanni, Hlaalu, Redoran all are labled "Hlaalu Guard", "Telvanni Guard", etc. Imperial Guards will now show up as "Imperial Guard".
• Finally, I added matching pauldrons to the Telvanni Cephalopod Helm. Telvanni guards are now more distinct from Hlaalu and Redoran, in a subtle way.

By using a variety of so-called "leveled lists", the composition of the guards changes from time to time.




Morrowind




Before you install the mod it is important to consider which version you want to use:
Yet Another Guard Diversity - Regular: gives Telvanni guards new pauldrons.
Yet Another Guard Diversity - Full Cephalopod: gives Telvanni guards new full Cephalopod armor.
Yet Another Guard Diversity - Purist: no new Telvanni pauldrons.
Yet Another Guard Diversity - Fully Modular: use this version when compatibility with other mods is concerned.

Copy the "Yet Another Guard Diversity.esp" file (and the Icons and Meshes folder) into your Morrowind\Data Files folder. Activate the mod in the Morrowind launcher.

Note: If you happen to use Antares' Big Mod, you should want to install the YAGD Antares Big Mod Compatibility Patch under Miscellaneous files. Make sure to load this patch after Antares' Big Mod in your load order.
