There’s also a new MGSO trailer!

Let’s start the the more obvious stuff.

An Ornitocopter is Born!
So, what’s going on here? Oh, so much indeed. See our new website? like the psychedelic feeling?
And look at our mascotte!

Yes, it’s a platypus that really wants to fly, poor thing.
Here’s a little story about us: I know Kingpix since 2007, when the work on the overhaul started. During this five years we discovered that we were sharing the same dream: make videogames. We tried many times to start our own project but we were short of time, due to our studies and jobs. We preferred to use that time for the Overhaul, ’cause we really love this project. Everything went on in this way, until one month ago. During one of a billion talks about “yeah, we should totally do this game!” with a friend of mine (which is DeV, part of ornitocopter too) we came up with something we thought was a good idea for our first project. I explained our project to Kingpix and he was thrilled, this was what we were looking for. Finally we decided that the time was right to make our dream come true. In no time we put up a nice team with people that have always dreamed about making games. In a couple of weeks we will show you what we’re working on. As morrowind fans we’re making something with a very “alien” setting, I think you’re going to like it 🙂
So wish us good luck!

Morrowind Overhaul: Sounds & Graphics 3.0
The third installament is coming out in a couple of days. We’re putting the final touches to the package in these hours and then, when everything is ready and every bug fixed, we will put it online for you. Among the new graphics, sounds and fixes there will be the easiest installer ever made for this package. The first version had a 40 pages installation guide, the second version’s guide was just 10 pages and the third one will have just one, and you don’t even have to read it!
Finally, here’s our new trailer, Hope you like it 😀

Last but not least, Morrowind Overhaul: Game Experience
Oh yes, cool stuff. We will continue to work on this package just like before, as this is our favourite hobby 🙂
We finally decided how to do this. We will put together an handful of mod, the non optional ones, wich will become the core of the package. When the core will be as much bugfree as morrowind can be, we’ll proceed in including more and more mods. As soon as we’ll decide what plug-ins will be in the Game Experience Core we’ll let you know with a description of the new features they add to TES III.

  1. Thank you so much, for your continuing labor of love on these projects towards Morrowind. You’ve kept this beautiful fantasy world full of life. Thanks so much again!

  2. you guys are amazing. i never posted before but i constantly watch this site. so stoked to see the overhaul evolve :))

  3. I’ve been checking the Morrowind Overhaul site regularly for about a year now. I love the work you guys are doing and I’m just a huge fan. Sometimes I felt a little discouraged because even though I know you’re busy I was hoping for some more updates… even just a post saying, “Here’s how it’s going.” So today I am super excited to see a brand new site. And MGSO 3.0!! I can’t wait for the Game Experience mod!!

    I’m also really happy to hear that you are working on an exciting new game project! I’ll be praying for your success!

  4. Will Upgrading from 2.0 to 3.0 cause problems with my save?

  5. YES!!! I’m so glad the installer is being improved! I remember having to re-install the mod four or five times before I could figure out how it worked! 3.0 looks absolutely fantastic; you guys are my heroes. I know it’s been mentioned before, but… Thank you for keeping Morrowind alive!

    • Same here! I didn’t quite get everything to work correctly with 2.0. I’m using a Steam version of Morrowind. And then I kinda gave up on the game, and played Skyrim instead.
      Now I might just switch back! 😀

      and good luck with your project!

  6. I just wanted to thank you all for the incredible hard work and dedication you have put into this project. So many creative and talented people have put their time and dedication into this and it shows! Thank you so so much for making it easy to mod one of the best games of all time.

    I hope this package continues for a long, long time and becomes the #1 essential package for any Morrowind experience.

    THANK YOU!!!!

  7. Great to hear that there’s a new version coming out soon, many thanks to all of you working on this awesome project! 😀

    How will downloads be distributed? Will there only be the one multi-gigabyte file, or will there be the option to download it in multiple parts, say 200-250mbs apiece? I’ll need to download it from a very slow public connection, so I’m hoping the latter’s possible

  8. first time i see this page, started playing oblivion a few weeks ago with new mods from tesnexus, but then i wanted to know if there where some mods for morrowwind, and i came across this site, ill check it out if the 3.0 is ready and if i’ll finished playing oblivion(with mods that can be 400+ or if your really happy 99999999+ hours), but thanks all ready for your hard work of finding the mods, and of course the programmers and designers for creating them, sorry for my bad english i’m not a native speaker a/o writer

  9. “The third installament is coming out in a couple of days.”

    How long is a couple of days?
    -not to be negative but I am Really looking forward to this ..I am sure you know the feeling.

    • Yes, we know the feeling very well.
      It will be avaible for dowload ASAP, but I can’t quantify how much “soon” is, sorry.

      • Thankyou for your reply, I will be patient from now on. I am most grateful for your efforts and skill.
        Without people such as yourself (and team) I would have nothing to look forward to (gaming-wise) anyways.

  10. You think I’ll be ready by this coming Monday the 30th? I erased all my morrowind folder and installed a new clean game from scrath to get it ready for 3.0 I love Morrowind think is the best one out of all of them, even Skyrim. Thank you.

    • I’m sorry but I really don’t know when it’s going to be released. It will be soon, though, you just have to wait.
      we’re doing our best.

      • ok, np…thanks for the quick reply. Thank your time. I got a slight question maybe you can answer or not…that’s related. I really love using a particular mod called “Great House Dagoth Mod by Mad God I believe his name is. Problem is I would love to see this mod be fixed or upgraded to work with your overhaul. Is that even possible..if you guys could fix that particular mod…make it less buggy etc etc? I know you need the permission from the owner right? I think. But anyways though i’d give it a shot and ask. Thank you so much again for all your hard work with the new overhaul.

        • it is likely that it’s going to be in the Game Experience pack.
          We still have to think really carefully about which mod is going to be in that package, though.

          • Oh I hope that one is in it for sure, since alot of people like that mod and its sorely in need of a huge fix. Problem with it mainly deal with the transformations abilities and getting a better stronghold for the faction would be nice also, along with a beter more satisfying ending. Sorry again for the trouble just wanted to give some advice. Thanks again for the quick reply.

          • we’ll keep that in mind, thanks for the advice!

  11. Hi Kingpix and friends!

    Thanks for add me in the “Special Thanks” list. I love your work. Good luck with the new project!

    Greetings from Argentina!

  12. Hey guys,

    HUGE thanks for your work, it’s great, it avoids frustration and saves an enormous amount of time !

    Regarding the Game Experience pack, is there some kind of time frame ? I understand that you can’t be sure or give “false hope” to the community but it would be nice to have a rough idea (i.e within next few weeks / 3 months / 6 months / a year / more ?) …no worries if you don’t want to reply of course.

    Thanks again!

  13. aye, fair enough and cheers for prompt reply

    in the meantime, can’t wait to play version 3.0

    keep up the good work!

    PS: wish there was a similar project for Oblivion, hopefully modders will be more keen on having their mods included in a compilation now that Skyrim is out.

  14. Good job! This project really makes it possible to hold on to Morrowind because it’s just too much work to go over all the mods and inevitable bugs…

  15. I love this mod project and the idea <3

    Is there a list which mods will be in the part 3?

    I would like to have the animals in the Wildlife and more faction stuff this would be wonderful and great =)

    Guy you are amazing.

  16. Hey I really love your work and I was just wondering if you have any estimated date for MGSO v3 im really excited so im sorry for being so annoying haha

  17. First of all: I love the Morrowind Overhaul!
    But after reading about the Game Experience pack I decided to stop playing since I wanted to wait for the best, “ultimate” Morrowind experience.
    Is there any vague release date (e.g. still this year) for the Game Experience pack, or is it still too early to ask that?

    Keep up the great work!

    • “But after reading about the Game Experience pack I decided to stop playing since I wanted to wait for the best, “ultimate” Morrowind experience.”

      Me too 🙂

      • Me too. just was gonna play morrowind, never finished it (windows crashed, sometimes just stopped play games), but always wanted to despite i restarted at least 10 times.
        your pack is very-very great. looking forward to this and experience pack. thank you for your work

  18. How soon is this gonna be done?

  19. Hi, will overhaul improve look of weapons and npc’s ?

  20. I can’t wait for this to come out. Just by looking at the screenshots I can tell this will be amazing!

  21. Well, this is awesome. I got the urge to replay Morrowind a few days ago, but I decided to hold out for version 3.0 of MO once I visited this site and it told me to wait. Looking forward to it!

  22. Yes!!! I was just craving some Morrowind only to find that 3.0 is days away! I can’t thank you guys enough for putting so much effort into this game and making it available for everyone. I will spend this time deciding what kind of character I will make once installation is complete!

    Thanks again!

  23. This looks amazing and I can’t wait.

    Over the last few years I’ve tried to pick up Morrowind just to get annoyed with the vanilla version and then give up trying to mess with mods.

  24. This wait is killing me.

    Are you guys still aiming for having the Game Experience release at the same time as MSGO?

  25. You are my heroes, after working 10h with Oblivion and then see it fall apart I salute you to bend the reality to make these hostile (but wonderful) modworks not rip each other apart and create a OVERHAULED Morrowind that could be played for atleast 100 000h

  26. Meanwhile no-one is asking about your next idea for Ornitocopoter, since everyone is visiting atm and waiting …maybe we could get a few more details on the planned ‘alien’ game.

    Also Platypi don’t have little wings like a penguin (they have webbed claws like a duck’s feet for their paws/hands) and are not bird-like (they don’t ‘want’ to fly), they dig burrows in the sides of rivers and are more like beavers, but with a bill.

    Really cool and mysterious creature.

  27. Some excellent news! Was just getting ready to work on installing morrowind and see what kind of enhancements were available. With so many available and impossible to know which ones don’t work together, I was about to just saw screw it when I found this compilation. I’ll wait a little longer to see when 3.0 comes out 🙂

  28. Hi I’m just wondering, is the Bloodmoon and shivering isle expansions required to run Morrowind overhaul 3.0? I don’t own them and I’d rather not have to buy them if it isn’t required to play Morrowind overhaul, but if I have to then I will.

    • Shivering Isles is for Oblivion and yes you should get Bloodmoon and tribunal notjust for support reasons but it expands upon an already incredibly massive world ah and there is Tamriel Rebuilt unoffical expansion pack done by awesome people just like J which makes the morrowind world 10x bigger then ever before with amazing environments because Bethesda just cant beat these truly amazing souls

  29. I am really impressed with your hard work and dedication to your fans and to such a wonderful game

  30. The work and effort you have put into the overhaul, is simply amazing..and after all these years, you kept up with it. I thank you, I thank you, I thank you.

  31. Just another excited fan asking on a ETA on the MGSO

  32. Will you work on a version compatible with OpenMW for the MGSO / MGE mods?

  33. Are we there yet? Can’t wait 😀
    Also, keep up the good work.

  34. As in today? I just recently bought Morrowind and I’m about to cave and install 2.0 >.>

  35. Just bought it on Steam sale so I could have an easy copy to install this on. Hope to see this released before the weekend is out!

  36. To keep improving and working on morrowind its amazing more people should focus on Morrowind like continuing development of mwse just because Oblivion and skyrim came out from the official developers and it has a few new features that are neat dosnt mean all of us as a community cant make something 10x better I mean I love Bethesda but some times they really let us down as fans promising things we would really like to see and throwing it back in our face when we find out they didn’t want to waste there time improving it hell they have a huge team yet do so little as a community we have 2-3 members working ob n a project for free and we do things they never have even thought of doing without any access to the engine of the game its amazing and I thank all of you creative souls for being so incredible oh and btw the Openmw project is awsome also hell they are developing a whole new engine for the game from the ground up and with people like J and the staff working on these projects we will have a game that is on a completely different level then anything Bethesda could do

    • Punctuation, man! Just out of courtesy, at the very least use periods. It’s extremely hard to read one long run-on paragraph. Painful, even.

  37. ^I agree, skyrim was more an action game than an rpg. A streamlined hack-fest with no fantasy, no mystery and no atmosphere …even the dragons didn’t give it the right feeling.
    Bethesda has lost their touch, but the community has the magic.

    • Your damn right I played threw 10 minutes of Dawngaurd which they made pc users wait over a month for and it was crappy and buggy as hell..It was more like oooo look what you can do ok now killfest blood gore then where the hell did the story go lol…And the ruin door puzzles in skyrim really you call that a puzzle heck reading the books isnt even part of the game… the lore of the game dosnt really matter anymore to Bethesda its like lets see what kind of cool killing we can ooo the pretty grpahics but lets throw out the rpg game play and make it more like a linear game such as the witcher 2 even the companions in the game suck no story behind most of them and the ones that do have a story the story is incredibly short and not very well thought out lots of plot holes

  38. Kingpix Y U NO ANSWERING ME in the FAQ’s 🙁

  39. So, how long we talking? It was “a couple of days” like two weeks ago.

    I’m waiting with baited breath!

  40. How many days left till 3.0?
    Because 2.0 has really bad bug, which, I hope, will not appear in 3.0

    • They have not set a release date yet the only information is “very” soon but just think the longer they take to put on the finishing touches the less likely there is to be bugs and the more likely it is to rock..just give them some more time I promise you its worth waiting for unlike “Dawngaurd” what a joke

      • Dawnguard’s pretty good, actually. There’s a lot more to it than the silly vampire stuff.

        • I guess it just depends on your personal taste I just don’t feel very in control of my role and the bugs don’t help the transformation from human to vamp is kind of sad for Bethesda having an extra month to improve the features for pc

  41. Keep up the good work thank you for all your efforts if i could help I would but for now all I can do is say thank you your hobby helps everyone else enjoy there hobbies

  42. Im gonna die of anticipation! I cant wait for MGSO v3, so there’s still no estimated date? I don’t mean to be rude but the post said a couple of days and its been a few weeks. No hurry though im just curious.

    • No there isn’t a estimated date just yet but remember the more time they put in the more quality that comes out…..I can relate to your anticipation but that is only going to make you love the mod that much more….

  43. You guys/gals have a funny definition of “a few days”.

    I wanna play now! :'(

    I am so looking forward to this.

    • Just you wait and see I’m sure they have a surprise for us that will blow your mind and you will go “omg I’m so glad we waited for this its totally awesome!!!” so just keep looking forward to it like I said before the longer they take to perfect it the more likely it will blow every ones minds

      • But I already know what the totally awesome thing is. I’m fine with waiting for it, but we’ve gotten past the point where it’s anything like the “few days” they said. That makes the wait harder, is all I’m saying.

        • Yeah I gotcha perhaps one of the team members are having some life troubles Remember back in January kingpin was having some sort of life troubles I hope everything is ok

  44. Strange my account says pending moderation if I try to post oh well

  45. Does this mod include better bodies? Or is it equivalent?

  46. well they did said a few days and it has been like 3 weeks. I’m just saying there should be some official word…because everyone has been waiting and its not fair for everyone….so be clear. Just saying. I mean I don’t even have the best computer and I’ll prob be running this on medium or low setting but I still want it.Basically…I want to play morrowind again and I want the best there is even if its on “low setting” so where is it? It has been 2 or 3 weeks since oh yea well release it in a couple of days. So please be clear. I understand all the work and I’m happy they doing this but please be clear…about the release date. Thank you.

    • I’m sure they understand your frustration untill its released why not just install v2.1 as we all know sometimes life gets in the way and some things have to take priority as such i have a baby on the way so I can understand if they have some trouble meeting there deadline I also understand how hard it is to make certain mods compatible with each other jus5t give it sometime and they will have it released just think perhaps there is somethign tragic going on in there life like a devorce or a car accident perhaps they were just late on one of there bills and the internet or electricity was shut off please give them some time and please understand the RL problems they might be experiancing …please ease of the pressure a bit they will ahve it out and it will be a great overhaul im sure of it… if you need any help installing the v2.1 mod just ask I have a link the the guide and I also could help guide you threw the setup process as well as help you with a few tweaks and bug fixes if needed & wanted thank you for understanding

  47. Quit bitching about stuff you get for free. Instead of asking when your free community-developed software will be available, maybe you might instead ask how you can help finish it.

    Better to have a QUALITY release go out late than a half-assed one that showed up on time.

    MGSO’s prior version was the definitive Elder Scrolls gaming experience, bar none, no exceptions. Hugely pumped for the new release whenever it shows up!

  48. Does anyone know how to turn off the cat sounds in Balmora and the shimmering rock textures in v2, or a forum where I can ask such a question. The forum here is dead.

    I really can’t play with the cat screech every ten minutes.

    • Try going into the MGSO options and turn off extra sounds or you can try finding the sound file for the cat scratching and just delete it…that’s what I would try anyways. As for the previous comment, I’ll be patient.

  49. hmmm, my posts are not goin through….. still awaiting moderation

  50. The first time I played Morrowind was on the Xbox and I was blown away. It’s breathtaking to see what you guys have accomplished. Back when Morrowind was first released there were nothing but positive reviews about its graphics/engine but imagine what would have been said if it looked as good as you guys have made it. At the very least you guys should (if you haven’t already) post your dev team in a credits wheel available in the game menu. Know that your work is appreciated and everyone who worked on this deserves recognition. I hope to be able to experience this soon!

  51. FU WTF wheres is the damn download link ? im searching it now for 2 hours

  52. I just like the valuable info you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and test once more right here frequently. I am rather sure I will be told lots of new stuff right right here! Good luck for the next!

  53. …………is it done yet………?

  54. Hi when will this luxus mod relese?…thx..i canott wait:-D

  55. Hey, wa sjust wondering if you guys could give us a status update? Its been months!

  56. Any status update yet?


  58. Greetings from Russia! Your mod is pretty awesome. It was my dream to play Morrowind in better graphic, and you made it real. Thnx a lot! (Sorry for my engilsh :))

  59. Witam was, jestem rozradowany z powstania takiego zbioru modów to wspaniałej gry jaką jest TES 3 morrowind. Lecz nie znam angielskiego dostatecznie dobrze aby grać na waszym modzie. Z tąd też gorąca proźba czy jak zakończycie naprawiać to moglibyście udostępnić wersje działającom pod polską wersją z spolszczeniem?


    I greet you, I am overjoyed with the creation of such a set of mods is a great game that is the Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind. But I do not know English well enough to play on your fashion. From here it is as hot proźba have finished repairing it could make versions działającom the Polish version of the locale?

  60. One thousand thanks, it’s a great piece of work you entire Team makes there. But i found some Bugs with the Bloodmoon and and Tribunal Expansion which i hope you could solve, first most of the chests on Soltstheim and the Tribunal dungeons are empty wich makes the Main Quest of Bloodmoon unplayable because i need to pick up a Key from a chest in Hircines Hunt Quest in order to progress, then i cannot enter the Lair of The Uderfrykte i searched the net and it apears that many players have this problems with the Overhaul, also i get error masages in every house i enter in witch a dunmer table is. So i hope you and your team keep up this great work. Thanks from Germany

  61. Hi I am so happy I found your webpage, I really found you by mistake,

    also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great
    deal more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.


    Are you going to update the installer package to reflect the new version of mcp as well as other programs?

  63. I just installed Morrowind-Tribunal-Bloodmoon and then MSGO3 from Nexus and followed all the instructions and Morrowind will not load. As soon as I get to the screnn and start a NERW game, it says:

    Morrowind has stopped working.

    What’s up with this? I have all the required things, non-Steam GOTY version on DVD and my PC specs are:
