    Search didn't return any relevant threads, so here goes.

    I have never played Morrowind before. There, I said it. I am about to.

    Are there any critical bug/patch/mods that I need to have installed before venturing in for the first time?

    What are good mods for MW that I should play with? Is there a widescreen or a graphics update mod that's worthwhile and should be used?

    :hmmm:
    except for jews, muslims, and liberuls there is no topic on rpgcodex with more relevant threads than morrowind mods

    unofficial patch, graphics extender, the brotherhood assassination delay mod, and a healthy dose of uninstall.exe is all you need

    Just use the graphics extender to enable widescreen support and this mod for better fonts and you'll be good to go.

    I find Oblivion to be the only TES game that needs a lot of mods to get any enjoyment out of.

    You definitely need something that delays the stupid Dark Brotherhood attacks.
    And you may want to just ignore Tribunal altogether, as it's story is very weak and the whole expansion is just annoying, and doesn't fit in well with the rest of the game IMO.

    A huge problem with vanilla MW is the Cliffracer plague; you definitely want mod(s) that change the ecology of Morrowind.

    Apart from that MW doesn't really need that many mods to be playable. No mods can fix its main flaw - the static, player centric world - anyway.

    MGE (just for modern resolutions) Morrowind Code Project, Unofficial Patch and maybe a Dark Brotherhood attack delayer (the Xbox version apparently delays them till level 7, which is still too early but better than level 1, for some reason the PC version doesn't and I can't find a mod that replicates that exact delay despite a dozen mods that delay/stop it some other way) are all you need for a first playthrough.

    There's stuff I wouldn't want to go through Morrowind again without, but would not give a first time player.

    Went with that. Boldly chose "medium PC" since even though my laptop is crap, it is such an old game.

    Started game. Got 2 FPS on the deck of the boat. FUUUU-

    Went with "poor PC", now get 30-50 FPS in game. Good compilation, thanks.

    Found a simple plugin in Nexus that prevents the attacks until main quest is done.

    I took the Fatigue/Magicka Overhaul 2. Seems to be working well. With 120 Magicka at game start, I can cast a good number of spells before I run dry. Magicka regenerates but slowly, meaning that I can't go overboard but didn't run out in that smugglers cave.

    Of course. Plus furry dicks but no scaley tits. Lizard people should not have mammalian appendages.

    I haven't even left the starting village. Too busy doing the little quests in there. Currently trying to find the murderer and figuring out a way to profit from the skooma merchant since I stumbled into her basement.

    Top kek @those silly mana regen ideas. Why wouldn't you take atronach sign when there's absolutely no problem with it thanks to alchemy, shrines and summoned creatures*?

    E.g. poking daedroth as argonian or flame atronach as dunmer. No need to cast it everytime, just create custom ring/amulet/whatever with around 10s summon spell. Even ancestral ghosts work really well.

    maybe the morrowind overhaul 'obsoletes' this due to them totally illegally distributing the modified exe and being total popamolers and including every mod and their dog.

    What is this? I never experience any brotherhood attacks in couple of my incomplete games. Not that i remember off anyway. Guess if it was such a plague, i would.

    I remember one DB guy attacked me right in the outskirts of Seyda Neen. That's basically on the second in game day.
    Then there was this hilarious occasion when I suffered 2 DB attacks in a row inside Balmora's Fighters Guild

    Honestly, how did Bethesda not realize how broken the DB attacks are? Surely some time during their testing they realized a level 1 character shouldn't be forced to deal with dark brotherhood assassins and shouldn't have an infinite supply of the 2nd best light armor in the game from right off the boat. The DB attack fix and the solsthiem rumor fix are two mods that should definitely have just be included in official patches.

    MGSO is shit and a hand chosen set of graphics mods will be way better, but it's probably not worth the time investment. Every time I reinstall Morrowind I spend half a week picking out mods and adjusting them for compatibility, then I play for a handful of hours and end up uninstalling again. Hopefully openMW can fix the gameplay systems in a way that vanilla mods never could.

    Now i'm even more convinced that i never encountered this DB attack shit. Would remember getting great armor in the beginning of the game. And i didn't use any mods for this stuff, that's for sure. Weird.

    Did you only sleep in the cenus and exise bed? The script on that is different (so it will display the tutorial message) and won't trigger them.

    The official mods are good, but I would wait till the middle of a playthough to add them

    I don't know what is cenus and exise, but i slept wherever it was convenient and possible to sleep, when i needed it. I'm sure i slept at least in several Seyda Neen shacks in the beginning.

    Then you didn't have the expansions installed. Or the one expansion that brings in that quest. It's telling of Bethesda QA that they didn't stop to consider how the expansion would affect new characters. What's even more fantastic is that they did it again with Skyrim - you have the Cultists attacking you very early in the game if you have Dragonborn installed. At least they don't drop anything spectacular.

    Pearl diving! Still not out of the starter village area :D

    Got both Tribunal and Bloodmoon. Are there any other?
    This actually makes me want to instal Morrowind. Would love to have cool armor and own the peasant guards right from the beginning. :popamole:

    You can already do that. Just buy a bound battleaxe spell.

    Missed swings still cost a little bit of fatigue, and hits cost A LOT. Swinging like a maniac will have your fatigue bar empty in no time.
