Skywind is coming to Nexus Mods

  • Comment
Today, we’re excited to announce that Skywind, the project that is re-imagining The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in the Skyrim Creation Engine, is coming to the Nexus!

In the past, Nexus discussion on the project has been moderated due to Bethesda’s stance that exchanging assets between their titles is not a situation they can condone or legally support. So for the past three years, the Skywind developers have been working tirelessly to rectify this by creating brand-new models, textures, heightmaps and audio. Literally hundreds of volunteers and more than an estimated hundred-thousand hours have gone into meeting this requirement.

The results are stunning, to say the least. Due to the incredible amount of work that's gone into recreating Morrowind from scratch, we are now able to happily support this project along with Bethesda. If you’re just now hearing about it or if you need a refresher, then please check out their latest developer video, “The Making of Skywind IV”. It’s a fantastic look at 4 years of hard work and a testament to the dedication of the team.



Much like modders have made all Elder Scrolls games the long-lasting successes that they are, the Skywind developers are hoping that the modding heroes here at the Nexus will join their ranks to become part of the team building Skywind as well. There are many varied openings for contributors, representing a wide range of skill-sets that I’m sure many of you who are reading this can fulfill.

Though there is no release date for Skywind yet, with your support we can help them achieve this ambitious endeavor. Every contribution is a step towards this goal, so if you think you might have some time and skills to offer, please visit them at the TES Renewal Project website and fill in the volunteer form to get started!

As it nears release, Skywind will be treated as its own title here at the Nexus. We’ll be opening forums and file repositories specific to Skywind with the intention that past and future great Skyrim mods can be built or patched to work within the updated framework that Skywind will offer. More info on that later. For now, be sure to check out their site and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on any progress.

So get out there, contribute, and make us proud. Have a good one!

    Something that isn't specified is if it's only compatible with Steam exclusive versions? or with the existing GOG copies?

      "All legitimate installations of Morrowind and Skyrim are expected to work (including disc, GOG, Steam)."

      It's right there on their website.

      It is not a troll.  They are having multiple posts on Facebook and on Youtube. I would recommend looking at those, and so far, they look amazing.

    I watched the video again, and I have one concern.

    Please tell me the "Head Bob" is optional.

    I don't comment much but I felt the need to congratulate the modders for their sheer will and determination to see this through and it feels so nice as a someone patiently waiting for this magnificent mod come to fruition following all the details one could follow I'm utterly amazed at the work they put in and I can only imagine the feeling the team must be feeling.

    Cannot wait for this!

    Skywind is starting to seem like flying cars--part of an imagined future that is and always will be X years away.
