Morrowind Spring Modjam 2021

  • Comment
If Morrowind modding sounds like your jam, we have something special for you brought to you by organizer Danae123 - please take it away!

The third edition of the Morrowind modding competition "MODJAM" is upon us and it's back with a revenge!

So basically...

Come April 3rd (yes, this weekend!!), modders have 48 hours to make a mod based on a theme announced minutes before the jam begins. Simple enough, right?

  • Modders can work alone or in teams.
  • Modders' resources are allowed (with permissions and credits of course)

About the theme...

Weeks leading up to the Modjam, themes have been suggested by the community.
The week before the jam, you can vote to shortlist 10 themes.
An hour before the jam begins (yes, this Friday!!), the top 10 themes will be revealed and the community will vote one last time during a livesteam on Twitch, hosted by DarkElfGuy and me, Danae.

You don't need to join the livesteam to vote, it's just a lot more fun that way ;)

That's nice, but I don't make mods...

Aha, we've got you covered! We want the Modjam to be a fun, quick event for everyone who loves Morrowind: modders and players alike.
To this end, we have a couple of side-competitions:

  • Best Screenshot: while others make a mod, players can play Morrowind and take a screenshot that best illustrates the theme. Just post it on the Nexus under the category "Spring Modjam 2021" before Monday!
  • Modjam Trophy Hunt: a very special mod by Merlord will be available during the Modjam only! Install the mod, read the clue, find the trophy, take a screenshot as proof. First to find the trophy wins!

That's nice, but I don't compete...

Aha, we've got you covered! In addition to voting on the theme and joining the livestream, you can simply play the Modjam mods and endorse your favourite: a special Player's Choice Award will be given out based on Nexus metrics.

Ok! Where do I sign up?

You don't :) - The Modjam is all about being in the moment! Just tune in for the livestream, make a mod, play mods, take a screenshot. Publish your mod or upload a screenshot and tag it "Spring Modjam 2021". That's it!

We even have a nice banner to put on your Nexus page:

Gotcha, first weekend of April and we're done!

Not quite... A week after the jam, we'll meet one last time on Twitch to chat with the mod authors, look at their mods and of course to reveal all the winners!

Right, but after that, we're done?

Yup. Spring Modjam over. Get ready for the May Modathon!
But that's another story for another time ;)

    **We promised it and Merlord made it happen!**

    You can now download and play "ModJam Trophy Hunt 2021"

    You have until Saturday to find all 15 trophies in the game.

    I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch on new content!

    Unfortunately I'm not able to contribute content but I'll support by downloading and check out the entries as best as i can!   

    I'm also eager to see if the new initiative that will bring MW to more people will increase the possible modders.

    This is announced not a week after I decide to start installing mods for Morrowind. Best of luck to all the modders! :)
    Please make them OpenMW-friendly so I can enjoy them too!
