What essentials did I miss? Meanwhile I'll study Sig's list to see what mods to add.

Regardless of how you feel about most of the mods included in the guide, the truth is that Morrowind Optimization Patch and Project Atlas are a must for performance and mesh fixes.

The best thing I can say about Morrowind's community is that the few major project it has going are all handled by a few authors working together. Patch for Purists, Morrowind Optimization Patch, Project Atlas, MGE XE and MWSE, all their authors can be found active in the Morrowind Modding Community Discord. A far cry from the New Vegas community, with people throwing petty fits over anything all the time.
