Morrowind Mod of the Month – August 2015

Today we have the fourth episode of our Mod of the Month series, a little late, but still celebrating the best mods from August 2015. The idea behind this series is to release a video every month honoring the best mods released in that particular month, as decided by popular vote and also in part by my own personal decisions.

You can vote for the Mod of the Month for September here.

Our mod of the month for August 2015 is Clear Your Name by Lucevar, a simple but very well made mod that’s positively fantastic for immersion and role-playing purposes. It adds a new NPC, the famed corrupt magistrate in Balmora, as a new option to get rid of any bounties you might have. In addition, House Telvanni and House Hlaalu players have new services where they can go to get their bounties fixed.

Second choice for mod of the month is One True Faith – Saints and Frescoes Retexture by Tyddy, a lovely retexture mod that completely changes and updates the textures for the frescoes and shrines on the Dunmer Temple, adding high-resolution and absolutely beautiful looking art that perfectly match the feel and theme of the Tribunal Temple.

Finally, our third choice for mod of the month is Lightning Ghost Fence Hi Res by Openglcg, a complete retexture for the ghost fence that surrounds Red Mountain, replacing the old and somewhat ugly blue forcefield of before with a new and fairly dynamic looking field of lightning bolts that provides a cool looking and mystical feeling barrier to Red Mountain.

ModTown 2015 – October Progress Video

Today we have the second major progress update for ModTown 2015, showing off a ton of the work that we’ve been doing since September, including dozens of new interiors, modder plots, shops, NPCs, books, dungeons, and there’s even one or two quests that have already been implemented! The major news with this update is that we’re postponing the release of ModTown 2015 until March of 2016, in order to give everyone more time to finish their plots and, more importantly, make sure we have an epic main quest that’s worthy of the community. This means the deadline to join has been expanded into next year as well, so now there’s even more time to get in on the action!

For those who don’t know, ModTown 2015 is a project for the Community, by the Community, celebrating the Community! The first ModTown in nearly a decade, ModTown 2015 aims to bring everyone together, modders and non-modders alike, to build a monument to our wonderful Morrowind Modding Community that’ll stand the test of time and celebrate the amazing things we can accomplish when we all work to build one massive mod!

ModTown 2015 aims to provide a unique and creative experience for all involved, with dozens of quests, dungeons, and exciting new activities for the player to do! And you don’t need to be a modder to help out! All you need to do is come up with ideas, provide creative writing, or generate discussion! There’s plenty for everyone to get involved and make ModTown 2015 a reality!
You can learn more about this project, and how to help out, at our forums here.

Morrowind Top 10 Quest Mods

As requested, for our third episode of Top Ten Morrowind Mods, we’re looking at the top ten quest mods made for Morrowind. Many of these will be familiar to you if you’ve watched Morrowind Modding Showcases, and it must be stressed that the orderings of these mods really doesn’t matter that much, they’re all great mods that are worth playing. You’ll also notice that a lot of quest mods are missing from this list. Due to Morrowind’s over 1200 quest mods, it was impossible to cover every great quest mod in a single top ten list, so we’ll actually be releasing a second episode with a top ten small quest mods to sort of supplement these larger epic quest mods that we’ve included here. But in any event, do feel free to share your own favorite quest mods in the comments down below!
