More-o-wind: Skywind Puts Morrowind in Skyrim

On the Morrow.


Skywind is a mod that brings Morrowind into the Skyrim engine. It's like someone at Bethesda took the Morrowind and Skyrim design documents and riffle shuffled them as a party trick, and then forgot to unshuffle them. Somehow--probably through a montage--those files ended up with modders. A less tired Craig would probably recount that montage, but that show-off wasn't up late playing Starbound and eating takeaway, so you just get facts and trailers. The last time I reported on Skywind, it was just an empty world. You could run around, but you could not do anything, but more recent updates have begun the task of integrating people, monsters, and quests. Which means it might be worth installing. There's a wee video to demonstrate some of that work.

It is a rather cheeky trailer, mirroring the original Skyrim trailer as best it can. I have to be honest: it's been so long since I played Morrowind that the landmarks don't mean much to me. If anyone with a keen knowledge of the map and world wants to call them out in the comments, you are more than welcome to do so.

The mod is an elaborate series of downloads that you can grab here, and it requires Skyrim and Morrowind Game of the Year (GOTY), or Morrowind plus the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions. A less tired Craig would also be downloading it right now, but as I pointed out, that guy doesn't have Starbound. I win!
