I have been really distracted recently with this exciting new collection of mods I have found for Morrowind.
The graphics are admittedly looking a bit dated now (though that is a draw for a lot of people eager to escape the HD bandwagon!).
So while I was going through a folder full of old Morrowind mods I have collected over the years but never tested much, I came across the following nifty little set while scouring the internet for updated versions:
“Morrowind Sounds and Graphics Overhaul” is the first pack. It contains mods that will alter and enhance the visual graphics and the sounds of the game.
The aim of this project is to make more people around the world appreciate this huge game by giving them a simple installation file which includes everything they will need to play Morrowind with gorgeous graphics and sounds. I’ve tried to keep Morrowind’s “feeling”; therefore, the mods/meshes/textures I chose are the ones that I think are most faithful to the original colours and environment.
A benefit of this compilations is that players don’t need to go through the “download every single mod out there and try it” phase of customizing Morrowind. The pack is intended for people who would prefer not to hand-pick mods out of the thousands of mods available. Modding Morrowind can be overwhelming for some people, and they might want to start out with a compilation before they feel comfortable picking and choosing mods on their own.
Here is a sample video of it in all it’s glory:
It is a large download, with three smaller downlaods after inital install (patch 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3) which greatly add to the functionality.
There is a pdf in each download with specific step by step instructions with pictures so it is easy to follow (mainly just clicking ‘next’).
But, here is a convenient video with it all explained there:

So, if you are a long time Morrowind fan, or a newcomer to this amazing game, do yourself a favour and grab this mod HERE and prepare to be amazed! (and although it sounds like it, i actually have nothing to do with the mod, I am just a fan!).
