Morrowind’s Abandoned Projects – Harsh Lands

Morrowind’s Abandoned Projects is a new series dedicated to looking at the forgotten and never finished mods of Morrowind, uploaded and left for dead by their authors, still to this day in an incomplete state. The goal of this series is to bring renewed attention and interest to these once promising and fruitful projects, and hopefully someone, or someones, will take the time to one day bring these mods to a fully finished state.

For our second episode, we’re taking a look at Harsh Lands, a relatively well-known landmass mod originally made by Spacecoke. A massive new landmass, nearly half the size of Vvardenfell, Harsh Lands adds a new island chain to the west of Vvardenfell, and is mostly exterior complete at this point, with the notable exception being some of the southern and very northern bits of Harsh Lands. Otherwise though, Harsh Lands has no interiors, no quests, and no real city planning. The mod was originally abandoned in 2010, after an alpha version of Harsh Lands was released on ModDB in 2009, and since then, as far as I know, it has remained in an abandoned sate. Spacecoke officially declared it abandoned in 2014, in response to a comment on his YouTube channel, and announced that it was free for anyone to take up and finish. With a lot of just extremely creative and epic looking exterior areas, Harsh Lands would be an amazing mod to see finished, but for now, it remains merely an exterior environment that you can explore and marvel at, and perhaps one day it’ll finally be completed.

Morrowind Modding Podcasts – The Dungeon Delvers Podcast

This week for Morrowind Modding Podcasts, we have yet another episode in our 15th Anniversary Series, this time with our Dungeon Modding Podcast, including a fairly popular cast of characters, such as Darknut from Greater Dwemer Ruins, RubberMan of Dwemer Rebirth, Dagoth Agahnim of Sobitur Facility, and MementoMoritius from Project Tamriel! Over the course of about an hour, we discuss a number of subjects related to dungeon mods, setting traps, creating compelling and atmospheric environments, and much more! Stay tuned for our next episode, when we cover the Province Mods!

Morrowind Modding Showcases – HD Vanilla Textures

Today for Morrowind Modding Showcases, we’re taking a look at the extensive HD Vanilla Textures mod by G The Generous, a nearly complete texture replacer package replacing the textures of vanilla Morrowind, Mournhold and Solstheim with more up-to-date, higher resolution, and upscaled textures that are otherwise exactly like the vanilla textures found in the base-game. Covering pretty much everything, this is an ideal replacer for those looking for something vanilla-friendly that doesn’t change the feel of the game. And to provide a detailed showcase, we’ll be providing a tour of pretty much all of Vvardenfell with these textures, so you can see whether or not you want them in your game!

Morrowind Modding Podcasts – The Future of Morrowind

Today we have a new episode of our little-known Morrowind Modding Podcasts series covering the topic of “The Future of Morrowind” with quest modders MauiEyes, Caeris and Dagoth Agahnim as part of our guest-panel. Originally recorded in September of 2017 with nearly two hours of audio, we discuss a number of different topics regarding the future of the Morrowind Modding Community, from the province mods to TES3MP to Bethesda’s new “Paid Mods” fiasco and much more, with the occasional off-topic ramblings. One of three podcasts we did in the Fall of 2017, we’ll be back in the coming weeks with the other two podcasts (covering dungeon mods and the province mods respectively) as we finish up audio-editing. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this somewhat long and meandering podcast as we discuss all the future might entail!
