Skywind Mod Brings Morrowind to Skyrim Engine
I came to the Elder Scrolls party late. I never played Morrowind and I didn’t care for Oblivion, but I do love Skyrim. During my recovery after a knee replacement last year, I spent an ungodly amount of time crawling through dungeons and marveling at the many vistas in Skyrim’s expansive world. It’s a great game, so much so that I own more than one copy–my brothers bought me a PS3 copy (I know, consolol), and I bought it for myself on Steam.
I often have a hard time going back to a franchise’s older titles once I’ve experienced all the features and visual appeal of the newest and shiniest iteration, but thankfully, modders sometimes fill the void on what I’ve missed. A modder named Eloth over at the Morroblivion Forums is bringing Morrowind back to glory on the Skyrim engine. The work is in its early stages, but it already looks excellent. The team wants help to get things done quickly, so if you’re an aspiring modder, hop on over and show off your skills! Now all I need is Oblivion to be modded in as well, so I can traverse the entire Elder Scrolls universe, slaying innocent villagers and looting their homes! Err, oops…I should probably keep my thoughts to myself sometimes.
