OpenMW: Porting Morrowind to an open source engine

It anyway is unlikely that OpenMW will acchieve compatibility to all mods out there.
They have stated that they won't reproduce specific engine bugs that are used by some mods.
Neither are they going to offer compatibility to MWSE (instead they want to expand the scripting capabilities of their engine).

So unfortunately a certain part of mods will never be able to run with OpenMW.

Bethesda will release their own remake before this is anywhere near completion.

Anyone here try the multiplayer(TES3MP)? Is it as fun as it sounds?

Version 0.6.2 allows players to play NPC sounds and animations on themselves. Essentially, your character can now say almost anything that an NPC of your race and gender can say, using the new /speech command, and you can also play any of the NPC idle animations using /anim.

The first 100 hours or so you spend playing Morrowind are all about figuring out which mods to use.

Good heaven no!, this isn't oblivians or skyrmjob, the game is perfectly fine out of the box, just play the damn thing and if you find something about it that bothers you, THEN you search for a mod.

The only mod I'd recommend getting for a first play trough is the one that delays Tribunal's DB assassins until you finish the main quest and the unofficial patches. Maybe Morrowind Graphic Extender and some HD texutres too if you really must please your inner graphix whore

If you don't like MW without mods, chances are you won't like it with them either, and you are just wasting your time.

After the new year, development has been quiet and there hasn’t been much of interest going on in OpenMW… or so I thought until I checked out the latest feature on the bugtracker. We now have a settings menu in our launcher that allows easy access to various optional features that were previously hidden in some text file that most people didn’t even know existed. Thanks to Thunderforge, enabling these options will soon be a simple matter of checking a box. It’s not quite clear if this feature is to stay in its current form, however, as we may revise it to be part of ingame options after getting OpenMW to its post 1.0 version state.

In other news, AnyOldName3’s work on bringing shadows back to the OpenMW engine is still ongoing

I didn't miss the shadows in OpenMW because the base game shadows in Morrowind were so horribly made (If you're on a bridge, the shadows would appear on the side of the bridge) I always turned them off. Nice to see working shadows being added.

Is there any point to doing OpenMW anymore? I mean a laptop made within the last 5 years can run the game flawlessly at its highest settings and mods and fixes have pretty much covered all the “improvements”
I think the big draw for this was a smoother better running Morrowind but somehow it seems that it is rather pointless now

Engine bug fixes, better mod support, massive performance improvement?
The original Morrowind ran like shit on my powerful PC, openMW is smooth as butter.

Also boni points for being open source.

Yes I understand that but as far as that is concerned is there like a horde of people clamoring for this sort of thing anyway? Mods for Morrowind are there even releases of that anymore? I dont mean to be dissmisive but a few years ago I thought it was a very good idea but 15 years later seems like an awful long time...

People still make games for the id Tech 2 engine, and for Morrowind there is still an active modding community albeit small.
In the end it's about preservation too, ensuring that the game will run well in the future. I won't see Bethesda doing that.

If I recall correctly, A complete OpenMW would among other thins allow modders to replace Morrowind's combat with something like what Mount and Blade has. It's a pipedream that's probably never going to happen. But if you could do that and then populate Morrowind with challenging opponents, it would probably be one of the best crpgs of all time.

Morrowind with a working "Radiant AI" (or similar) would have been one of the best crpgs of all time.

Feyd Rautha has obviously not played Morrowind.
