About this mod

Modlist focused on location and dungeon mods

Permissions and credits
As a gamer, I've always been extremely fascinated by the worldbuilding of Morrowind and it's definitely what keeps me coming back to this fantastic game!
As a modder, almost all the mods I've released are related to locations and landscapes.
As you can imagine, over the course of the years I've tested and tried almost every town/location mod out there and I thought I'd share my knowledge with the community on this topic!

This modlist's purpose is to provide a relatively small set of mods to replace what Morrowind Rebirth has to offer and with a result that's - in my opinion - superior in terms of l
ore/vanilla friendliness and accuracy.

I only selected mods that are vanilla/lore friendly. To give you an example, compare what Rebirth does to Ebonheart to what the mod suggested in this guide does. Or take a look at Balmora and Seyda Neen.
The goal here is to expand and improve the game we fell in love with in the first place rather than changing things without a precedent.

Morrowind Rebirth is a mod that does many things, but I think what people appreciate the most are its towns and dungeons overhauls, provided in a single package for convenience.
I cannot provide you with a single package, but with a list of mods which will allow you to make your own overhaul.

I want to make it clear that I'm not trying to bash Rebirth.
The purpose of the modlist is simply to help people putting together what I think is the best version of Morrowind to play in 2023.

Please note that this modlist is very focused on towns, dungeons and landscapes. If you need instructions about setup, graphical replacers, bugfixing ecc. there's already excellent guides you can follow and that are perfectly compatible with the mods listed here.

Lastly, I strongly recommend using the latest mlox, hosted here:

So, let's get down to business!


Beautiful Cities of Morrowind 
Covers almost every settlement

Concept art palace

Pre-release Prison-moon
Vivec Lighthouse + Quest Addon

Tel Mora
OAAB Tel Mora

Vos, Tel Vos and Grazelands
OAAB Grazelands

Nordic Dagon Fel
Dagon Fel Lighthouse
The Grove of Ben'Abi
Ancient Foes
Of Justice and Innocence
Gray North - Ruined Redaynia
Sanctus Shrine


You only need one mod here: TOTSP Solstheim Overhaul.

There's patches provided here for a few different mods, making it less incompatible than you would think.
Of all the various patches, I would definitely recommend installing Wanderers of Solstheim as it makes the wilderness a lot more interesting to explore.

Since TOTSP doesn't cover interiors, I also suggest this:
Nordic Solstheim - Solstheim Interiors Overhaul

Immersive Mournhold
Dark Brotherhood Headquarters

Some of these have patches that work as esp replacer into the zip of Beautiful Cities of Morrowind so make sure to replace the esp files once you're done installing the assets.

Creeper the scamp
RR Mod Series - Mudcrab Merchant
Silt Strider
Azura's Shrine Overhaul
Simple Vivec Library Overhaul or Library of Vivec Enhanced
The magic rock of Maar Gan
OAAB Shipwrecks
Nine Holes and Thirteen Telvanni: two minigames that add a certain degree of interactivity to Morrowind, and also make taverns more interesting places to visit
The Patchwork Airship - Fleshing out a vanilla quest
Caldera Manor Redone
Memento Mori


Tales from the Ashlands - The Great Hive Baan Binif
Concept Art Molag Amur Region - The Great Scathes
Caldera Mine Expanded
Strider Burial
Faces of Vel - Ash Mire
Trackless Grazeland

Corkbulb Trees


Every dungeon mod by Seelof
OAAB Tombs and Towers
GlitterGear's Daedric Shrines Overhauls
Andrano Tomb remastered
Maren's Misfit Mabrigash
Samarys Ancestral Tomb Expanded
Mamaea Awakened

Another one of the main selling points of Rebirth.

You only need:

Vanilla friendly creatures and undeads expansion
Vanilla friendly wearables expansion
Royal Barenziah
Dissident Ordinators

With this list, I can assure you that you'll explore a world that feels extremely familiar but has more character and depth, and looks closer to what pre-release screenshots and official concept art portraited.

The screenshots posted here don't even scratch the surface of what the mods in the list actually do.
I hope this modlist will be of some use!
