About this mod

Rebalances armors to reduce the quality jump between armors and increase variety

Armors Rebalanced

The armor balance in Morrowind is weird.

For example, the quality jump from the second-best and best light armor is gigantic: the Chitin armor set protects 10 while Glass protects 50.

Similarly, even forgetting the super rare Daedric armors that protects 80, there is quite a jump between Dwemer and Ebody: Dwemer protects 20, while Ebony protects 60.

The expansions — Tribunal, LeFemm armors, and Bloodmoon — improve the situation a bit. But the expansions feel too much like a separate world.

This mod integrates the Quorn armors and rebalances all armors so that Armor Rating, Enchant Level, Health, Weight, and Cost are more equally distributed between worst and best of the various kind of armors.

To reduce the effect “Armor A is better than Armor B” I tried to mix a bit. An armor type might be more protective, but to be easier to break or less enchantable.

In general, going with the theme of an Island of survivalist Dunmer druids the more “natural” materials are more enchantable; but metal is stronger.

The new armors are put in the usual Morrowind Levelled Lists and many NPC also received some selected depending on the class or attributes.
So the armors are properly integrated.

Finally, some weirdness of the base game has been fixed: the Indoril Armor has greaves, the Gold Armor has all pieces, the Glass Bracer are included in the expected leveled list, it exists a Daedric Tower Shield in the world, if an armor (or helmet) has the word Imperial in the name it counts as uniform...



How to Install

Unpack the mod and activate in the launcher. Since the mod changes many NPC and levelled lists you will need to merge.

Among other options you can use delta-plugin.

delta-plugin will merge NPC new equipment and the leveled lists.



Other suggested mods

The following mods are suggested to balance the game together with this armor rebalance.


Expansions Integrated,

More Deadly Morrowind Denizens (Morrowind Rebalance 1),

Beware the Sixth House (Morrowind Rebalance 2),

Tribunal Rebalance,

Bloodmoon Rebalance,

Weapons and Armor Balance Mod (only the Weapons component, needs cleaning).

The resulting game will be hopefully more fun and satisfying making a more coherent world.



Conflicts


You require merging, but with proper merging this mod should not conflict with anything. Other mods that change the armors may be a bit out of place.

In particular:

Quorn Resource Integration will add the Quorn armors a second time, but in the download section is a patched version with no armors.
LeFemm Armor official plugin is redundant for this mod adds the Domina and Gold Armor (full of all pieces).

Quorn Resource Integration.
LeFemm Armor official plugin.



List of cuirass

To discover the new armors is part of the fun, but I include here a list of all cuirass types so you can have an idea. In the file is complete list if you want all the details. As you can see the extremes should be more or less like the original game, so items from other sources or the untouched ones should not be out of place.

Acknowledgment

Quorn to the make armor models and Melchior Dahrk to make integration allowing me to find them.

XeroFoxx for the textures editing. To complete the Gold Armor we started from the Helseth Guards armors, I changed the model a bit and XeroFoxx changed the textures to have the yellow gold color. XeroFoxx also repainted the Indoril Greaves to have their color to match the other armor pieces.



History

1. change the balance a bit, notably there is a bit more quality jump between the best armors; still much much less than in the normal game; add a bit more armors to NPC; add spoiler files with armors information
