PostSubject: Morrowind Watercolored   Mon Nov 28, 2016 9:50 pm

I've just stumbled on this mod and going by the video and screenshots it does look quite striking.

The great thing is that it is just a simple texture replacer, original textures have been resized before getting a watercolour treatment and that allows the mod to keep the original Morrowind look.

I'm almost tempted to pick up Morrowind once again just to give it a go. alien

You are required by law to own a copy of Morrowind, or the RPG police will come smash your kneecaps with a special hammer Laughing

It does look great, but I still prefer the Overhaul mod. Pretty good find, though.

They'd have to catch me first. Wink

Technically I do own a copy, it's French only (bloody localized CDs, one reason to be grateful for Steam) and the actual CDs no longer work.

In any case I've picked up a key from gmg. Don't get me wrong I have fond memories of Morrowind but it's no Fallout 1. The quests and NPCs didn't feel right to me back in 02 so I don't expect that they will now. Still, this game has a soul which is more than I can say about bloody Skyrim with its formulaic landscape and drab would be vikings and dragons.

Nothing can touch the greatness of F1 and F2.

I'd argue that Morrowind was the absolute pinnacle of the ES series. The plot is slightly on the bollocks side but Vvardenfell has so much variety in terms of landscapes, microbiomes to borrow a MC term, and the (partial) lack of fast travel feels very old school. You want to get somewhere, then bloody get there on your own.

I love Morrowind to death, and even though Tribunal/Bloodmoon were a bit on the meh side, they still combine to make a game that earned the title of timeless classic.

As for Skyrim, like we've discussed before it COULD have been great had the story taken a different turn. But Bethesda will be Bethesda.

And on a side note, that's what you get for not making backup ISO images Wink The copy I am playing is my original copy even though the discs have crapped out.

I believe that my subconscious wanted to get rid of the atrocious French version...

For the record it's not that I don't like French but the real problem is that localized versions suck balls. The translations for videogames are usually rushed by low paid part time translators who don't have any idea what the stuff they're working on is about and more often than not the terms used are misleading if not downright wrong.

The fact that English as a language is much more concise doesn't really help either.

Bottom line these days even French games are made first and foremost with English in mind. Many French players are irate that French indie games don't even get French voice acting but that can't really be helped.

Back in the 90s it wasn't that hard to find games in the original language but there was a time in the early 2000s when it was almost impossible for me to get my hands on a non localized version of games unless I took a trip across the channel or ordered my games from the UK which is why I got stuck with the French only version of Morrowind.

So glad you've been able to enjoy these games.

Fallout 1 alone is the most significant landmark in my gaming life.

To be fair, when I first laid eyes on it Morrowind did take my breath away. It was absolutely and ridiculously gorgeous. Plus it had that exotic quality which kept bringing home the fact that it was about exploring an alien world and not just another day spent dungeon crawling (something that tends to get old when it doesn't deviate from the formula especially if you've been playing RPGs for almost 30 years).

Maybe I was spoiled but Skyrim never elicited so much awe and it never fuelled my imagination the way Morrowind did (despite its shortcomings).
