Morrowind-in-Skyrim Mod Status: Still Not Done, Still Very Pretty

Illustration for article titled Morrowind-in-Skyrim Mod Status: Still Not Done, Still Very Pretty

Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim’s engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won’t be ready for a while. To help cope with that fact, I look at the team’s progress videos as mere instances of 3D Morrowind fan art. So let’s look at some fan art!

So, what’s there to see? Landscapes, mostly, along with several new interior tilesets (think of them as building blocks for Skywind’s indoor areas). As expected, it all looks quite nice while preserving that Vvardenfell feel. Watch:

That’s good fan art.

You can catch up with all the videos the Skywind team’s released here.
You can also volunteer to help the project here, if you feel up for it.

Good luck with finishing it. My girlfriend tried to fire up the original Morrowind, and I was surprised to find that it just keeps hitting you with pages of text, and when you get past that, the combat system is such that you can’t even hit the tiniest of worms.
