Is it possible to recreate the later Elder Scrolls Games in Daggerfall?

Talk about the mods or features you'd like to see in Daggerfall Unity. Give mod creators some ideas!

Is it possible to recreate the later Elder Scrolls Games in Daggerfall?

Post by Benatane »

The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project is attempting to recreate other elder scroll games (Morrowind and Oblivon) in Skyrim. Oblivion modding community has been trying to remaster Morrowind in their game. Is it possible for us to recreate these games using Daggerfall engine? The game world would be much larger than the original games, though it doesn't need to be as massive as the actual daggerfall world.The main plot would remain the same with a few alterations.

I have not played any TES game beyond Morrowind, but I can say that a lot of MW features are inherited from the previous two titles. With DFU's flexibility it is probably not impossible to accurately reimplement the missing mechanics (perhaps importing some from OpenMW), or even retain some of Daggerfall's features which were removed in Morrowind like shop opening hours.

IIRC there's already a mod that has Dunmer villager NPCs so this would not be a problem either. Custom terrain is also possible with mods.
