The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind looks great in OpenMW with over 300 mods

YouTube’s ‘Mr. Moonshine’ has shared a video, showcasing The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind running in OpenMW with over 300 mods. And, this modded version of Morrowind looks great, and way better than its vanilla version.

Now in case you didn’t know, OpenMW is a free, open-source, and modern engine which re-implements and extends the 2002 Gamebryo engine for The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind. OpenMW comes with its own editor, called OpenMW-CS, which allows the user to edit or create their own mods or original games. Both OpenMW and OpenMW-CS are written from scratch.

What’s also cool is that Mr. Moonshine has shared the list of mods he used. Therefore, you can download the mods and make the game look exactly like that in the video.

Lastly, the OpenMW team is currently working on a brand version of it. One of the most exciting features of the upcoming version 0.47 is the addition of distant LOD (distant land/statics). And, as you may have guessed, this video also showcases this new feature.

You can download OpenMW from its official website. As the team has noted, OpenMW is currently more stable and less buggy than the original Morrowind game engine.
