Yakuza 4 Remastered

Morrowind May Modathon 2020 - Wrap Up

  • Comment
May is over and the Morrowind May Modathon 2020 celebrating the 18th anniversary of all-time classic TES III: Morrowind is coming to an end. But that's not a reason to be sad, oh no, let's instead rejoice at the more than 280 new mods that have been uploaded by their creators during the Modathon - that's quite the spike in mod uploads!

Even (almost) two decades after its release Morrowind truly is one of those games with its own, unique charm. I must say, seeing some of the many new Morrowind mods does give me some serious nostalgia pangs... Check out some of my personal highlights from this year's Modathon:

  • The aptly named Pacifist Options - When it makes sense - a mod that gives you peaceful options to complete certain quests.
  • Mistify - enhances the ambience of the Bitter Coast by adding a new mist effect throughout the region, adding to its eeriness.
  • Heart of the Velothi - Gnisis is an epic overhaul of the city of Gnisis that is inspired by the original concept art.
  • Hotkeys Extended gives you - you guessed it - more hotkeys by expanding the vanilla Quick Menu.

Congratulations to everyone who have earned themselves one of this year's shiny achievements or one of the many games the event host darkelfguy gave away during the month of May. We sincerely hope that we will see you all back for next year's Modathon. Our thanks go out to all the participants and darkelfguy in particular for hosting another fantastic Modathon!

Last but not least, here's your host darkelfguy himself with some final words on this year's Modathon:

For the sixth year in a row, the Morrowind May Modathon Month Modding Competition has been a huge success, with hundreds of new mod releases by dozens of mod authors, both new and old. Celebrating Morrowind's 18th anniversary, the community has released hundreds of new mods for this nearly two-decade old game, by some 73 modders, featuring hours of content to make Morrowind feel new again!
There were a ton of exciting mods released for this year's Modathon, with dozens of new gameplay features, countless new dungeons to fight through, new quests and adventures to go on, new player homes to move into, graphical replacers to install, and even a few new landmass mods to expand your game with, not to mention a couple of multiplayer mods for TES3MP!
While we fell a bit short of breaking last year's Modathon record, the Morrowind Modding Community has released a number of amazing mods this past month, proving once again that the best games never die!
A special thanks goes out to all the modders who participated, and stay tuned for the Summer Morrowind Modjam Competition, a 48-hour modding event coming July 11th-12th!

Speaking of Modjam...

I hope you didn't have any plans for the weekend of July 11th - 12th because that's when the first Morrowind Summer Modjam will be going down. Modders will have just 48-hours to come up with, design, and release the best mod they can before time runs out. And there will be random prize drawings, badges, achievements - you name it! If that sounds like your jam, well, then stay tuned.

    I didn't realize the Morrowind modding community was still alive. Maybe I should get back into Morrowind Modding too.

    Great modders are doing what Bethesda is so lazy to do. Shameful they are ending the game on its very own anniversary??
    That is a great way of showing we care about our gamers who pay us...by ending a game they want to keep playing?
    Great you might figure out you just insulted gamers who pay you?

      If you don't like it, go and play more complete games with better editing tools and mods ... oh wait Bethesda is the only one that openly gives you their tools to edit the game in every detail.
      There are some games I still play that you can't even mod, or if you mod, there are visible bugs.

      That happens because they want to release the game in 11-11-11 to make it inmortal. But remember if bethesda don't release the creation kit then we couldn't enjoy all the mods that we have today. If you take a look to others games you are going to noticed that there is not too many mods like in TES & Fallout series.

    My dungeon mod had been rattling around in my head since 2002. This Modathon finally got it out.

    I love this game to death and I really believe that it has the best community a game can have. Thanks for all the new content guys, I’ve already enjoyed some it and I hope that I’ll be able to enjoy every single mod if time allows.

    Cheers and beers, plenty!!
