AUGUST MINI-EVENT



The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (PC/XBOX) - 2002 - Deadline 8/31/23 11:59EST
   +
Dagoth Urgust (IZGC Morrowind Mod Competition)



The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an open-world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 2002 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox. The main story takes place on Vvardenfell, an island in the Dunmer province of Morrowind, part of the continent of Tamriel. The central quests concern the demigod Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign.

-------------

The month-long game for August is The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and alongside the usual trophies we are holding a basic modding competition. You can win trophies for creating a Morrowind mod, or playing another imp's mod, and a unique plat will be awarded for the winning mod after a community vote at the end of the month.

This event idea came courtesy of mbt: Every year the Morrowind modding community celebrates "May Modathon" for the anniversary month of Morrowind's release. Modders treat it as both a modjam and a time to release all of the insanely elaborate things they've worked on for the past year. mbt pitched this to me in March, but we already had Zelda planned for May so we're celebrating now instead, in August. Dagoth Urgust. lol



mbt's MOD PACK

:siren: mbt has put together a customized "Vanilla Plus" mod pack with bug fixes, quality-of-life changes, and minor graphic tweaks for imps to get up and running quickly on modern systems. Details on how to install it will be in a post below. :siren:

mbt put this mod pack together specifically for IZGC, here's how to set it up:

DOWNLOAD THE MOD PACK HERE
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Y_cA1IiqQ-JndOpJ0lUMgwetQrpV2hnx?usp=sharing

Includes a pre-installed version of OpenMW and all the data files you need.

This is a fairly vanilla slightly enhanced install. Nothing too fancy, this will get you the vanilla experience.

Only two major gameplay mods
1. A minor magicka regen mod
2. A mod that makes running 20% faster and reduces stamina while running

You can disable them if you want by checking the boxes at the end of the list

HOW TO INSTALL:

code:
1. Unzip the archive (Default is C:/ModdedMorrowind)
2. Inside the OpenMW folder you just unzipped, run the OpenMW-Launcher and go through the setup accepting things and importing your Morrowind install
3. Close the OpenMW-Launcher
4. Navigate to Documents/My Games/OpenMW
5. Replace openmw.cfg, launcher.cfg, and settings.cfg with the provided copies
6. In openmw.cfg find the line
        data="C:\Morrowind\Data Files"
and replace the path with your Morrowind installation.
7. In openmw.cfg find any lines with
        data="C:/ModdedMorrowind"
and replace with your path to the modpack
8. In launcher.cfg repeat the above steps, replacing data=C:\Morrowind with your Morrowind location and data="C:ModdedMorrowind" with your modpack location
9. Relaunch the launcher
10. At the bottom of the window change Content List to IMPZONE_vanillaplus
11. Change settings like resolution or graphical enhancements you want and play
Warnings:
-Don't enable the Bethesda DLC plugins, the modpack includes a combined patched version
-The mods labeled "Rem_" are intentionally disabled. Do not enable them.

OTHER STUFF

How to disable groundcover (the basic grass)
In Documents/settings.cfg find the line
code:
[Groundcover]
enabled = true
Change this to false

How to add more mods to this setup:
code:
Easy:
-Extract the mods into your morrowind/data files directory and enable the esp in the OpenMW-Launcher
Hard:
-Create a folder inside the OpenMWMods and extract the mod into it.
-Click the "Data Directories" tab inside Data Files and then the append button on the right
-Add the folder you just created
-Switch back to the "Content Files" tab and enable the esp (if it has one)

Ok with MBTs help I think I have my mod the way I want it. Now I just need to remember the console commands to properly test it, then how to export it for others to use.

Taking a break from the endless sewers of Tribunal. The city itself is cool, but the density of enemies, their inflated HP and a miserable escort quest makes me not want to continue my first playthrough.

Wish I could figure out to change the choice 1 dialogue to also act as a Goodbye, but I think that would gently caress up other dialogue.

ARE YOU READY FOR IMPO 2




We all know and love the classic expansion pack impo.esp by Sony Entertainment which can be found to this day on impzone.club downloads section.

But did you know there was a sequel, created by Bethesda Softworks them selves after they were acquired by Microsoft? Under whose benevolent gaze they were able to expand the adventure far beyond anything previously imagined?

No?

Now u do.

As with impo.esp, the adventure begins in the Vivec Foreign Quarter Canalworks in a mysterious new shrine...

I've finished my first Morrowind mod after being taken by a strange mood and locking myself in my office for two days. I've been wanting to make a simple mod for this game since it released, this was a great excuse to do it!

100% canon and lore-friendly





Just an .esp, drop it in your Data Files folder and select it in the launcher. The quest starts in the courtyard of the Seyda Neen Census and Excise Office.

mbt did some extremely helpful troubleshooting and bug fixing on this, which was great because I have no loving clue what I'm doing. thanks dude :cheers:

:cheersbird:, worked like a charm

Here's my simple and short 1 quest mod based on my initial impression of Morrowind. I used a memorable location from early on in my time with the game. Hopefully this esp file is the correct one, OpenMW moved it from the original location I had it in while I was making changes but everything seemed to work when I tested it out. The starting NPC is in one of the bedrooms in the Ald'Ruhn Mages guild because that was my main center of operations in the game.

Tribunal Facelift (alpha)

replacing tribunal made me realize how much of the bullshit i forgot. this should make it better.

some untested changes. a true alpha.

code:
Made the sewers less confusing by merging some and reducing their overall size
	-West sewers - merged into residential sewers
	-Armory ruins - cut
	-Temple catacombs - cut
	-Abandoned passageway - cut
	-Temple west sewers - merged into temple sewers
	-Temple east sewers - merged into temple sewers
	-Palace sewers - reduced size

Shrine of the Dead
	-No longer a massive escort quest, you get blessed oil and re-annoint the shrine yourself
	-The shrine is now a tribunal shrine and not a static desk. 
	-You also get a unique one-time only buff of 20% sanctuary and some minor thematic effects.
The Missing Hand
	-Completing it allows you to wear Ordinator armor without a crime, improved two of the spell rewards
	-Her Guard Against Terror: resist paralysis 20% -> resist paralysis 30% + resist poison 30%
	-Her Reflected Glory: fortify health 10 -> Fortify Personality 5 + Fortify Willpower 5
Barilzar's Mazed Band
	-Completable at any time. No more rocks arbitrarily blocking your way
	-I guess you could jump to near the end of the game this way. Up to you.
Matchmaker 
	-Removed the randomness: telling Sunel Hlas to be optimistic or be himself has 100% success. Telling him to talk about his dead wife has 0% success.
The Barbarian and the Book 
	-Refusing the quest initially doesn't automatically fail the quest
Wood Elf with a Grievance 
	-Refusing the quest initially doesn't automatically fail the quest
Almalexia topic postgame 
	-Temp solution so far that lets you tell one person and then removes the topic from everyone
	-I don't know what the point of telling everyone that Almalexia is dead is if nothing happens from it.
Gedna Ralvel 
	-Base health 700 -> 1000
	-Scripted leveled health went from (level * 100) to (level * 30)
	-Also fixed the vanilla script bug where it would triple down on buffing health

Glad I got this mostly done in time. I coded in a Hookshot. It's a little rough still, but it's fun. You'll have to get a nightly build of OpenMW for it to work, the player teleportation is bugged in 0.48 so you snap to the ground along the whole hookshot route. Check it out!

The Construction Set modding tool gets installed automatically with Morrowind. Just open the install folder and run "TES Construction Set.exe", that's all you need.
