Wow, as my title stated, so hyped.

Considering that this is a joint workbench with other mod makers, I guess other mods will be easy to use as well. This will be such a great time waster (referring to the other mods btw).

Recently installed Morroblivion and it's barely better looking than the Overhaul, but plays much better. I'm extremely excited about this eventually working though.

Mods or no mods, watching video's like these makes me want to go back and play Morrowind all over again on my original Xbox.

Followed by KOTOR... Don't ask how that suddenly came to mind, because I couldn't tell you.

How are they planning on getting all the NPCs and quests in there? Unless they can import most of the data it seems like it'd be an impossibly huge task to fully recreate a game like Morrowind.

Sweet Jesus.

I'm over when this gets released. What impresses me most is the firm design principles that have in mind. The armor edits, especially that unbelievably badass looking glass armor, really look better than some of the released games' armor (Skryim's release, obviously).

But the update creature models are really surprising. The Golden Saint, the ghost, the Ogrim, they all look fantastic.

Really cool and amazing work but what happens when the next official ES game takes place in Morrowind? Oops!
Two problems with that.

1) The lore has Morrowind's (also known as Vardenfell) Red Mountain erupting and pretty much make the island an unbreathable wasteland. Sure, the main province can be used, but they can't really re-tread the past places.

2) Its my understanding that the current plan is a game focusing on each province. If anything, I'm praying for Elsweyr. After the frigid north, I'm up for the hot deserts and warm savannah. Though Black Marsh could be cool too.

I'll be honest, some of the lighting in the early parts of the vids looked really dodgy.

But damn, that soundtrack. They need to release that in a compilation, sounds amazing.

I think that's what they're doing. You'll need the original data files directly from a Morrowind installation. No clue how exactly the conversion process would go from there.

I'm pretty sure I read that is what they're planning to do but didn't make a note of the exact source.

This has me nervous. The video made it sound more like a fan attempt to update the entire package instead of just the visuals which is what I was really hoping for. Could be great, but so many developers being online volunteers building their own stuff instead of just updating older stuff sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Hoping for the best.

Been following this project for a while now. I hope it doesn't take years to fully realize. I have a lot of admiration for the PC community who do stuff like this. Really really cool. Can't wait to play it.

I never got to play Morrowind when if first came out, and when I tried to go back, the graphics had aged so poorly that I couldn't take it. This overhaul was exactly what I wanted - I find the Morrowind aesthetic is gorgeous when the graphics are up-to-date.

This is incredible. Zenimax/Behesda should officially back these guys and help them release it as a standalone on consoles. I'm pretty certain it would sell more than enough to cover the costs involved.
That would be neat, but can you imagine the legal mess this would be? It's being made by a community, not a few individuals. How would you even sort out payment?

Huh? What did I say? Did I screw up again? :(

This is amazing (though I wish the narrator wasn't so angry) and I love the dedication it seems these guys have. I will definitely follow the development of this.

Not sure what interesting there is in this. Better graphics and that's it. You can't use awesome Morrowind mods with this, and Skyrim's game mechanics are no better, and even worse at times.
Oh, they're doing pretty great job at remaking the assets but... eh.
