Yes, this latest update is huge.

Here's the official update video walking you through the changes and state of the engine:


A good case for using OpenMW over Morrowind:


Here is a crazy modding showcase from the same guy (over 300 mods):

Seeing all this, all the work being done on later tes games by community - I came to the conclusion that a present Bethesda is one of the most pathetic company I know of. 10 years since skyrim, no remaster of anything, no new tes game only the neverending re-release of skyrim because thats enough for them.

Deffinition of pathetic.

Its quite hard to get grass ingame for a newb, do u have some good modlist or ideas?

Is MGE XE completely redundant when using OpenMW?

Do u use Tamriel Rebuilt or Morrowind Rebuilt? 😁

Since OpenMW 0.47 Remiros Ground Cover is compatible out of the box. Just make sure to install the correct version and to add the correct lines in the ini files. It is all described on the mod website:

https://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/46733

MGE XE is neither needed nor compatible with OpenMW. You have distant terrain and shadows in OpenMW, too, without needing to configure things. OpenMW may have less post-processing effects, but still looks very good. Use texture replacers, though, to have normal maps etc. I can give you a list later of texture mods that work fine and are consistent, when I am back at my PC.

I use Tamriel Rebuilt, Skyrim Home of the Nords, and Province Cyrodiil.

I do not use Rebirth anymore.

Thanks for info :) yup I would really apreciate a mod list, I dont want to spend week on analyzing every mod anew (as u said, consistency is important and getting a consistent set of mods takes time) - its not that simple for a fresh newcomer like me to orient myself fully. I really like what Im seaing so far tho 😊

Hot damn, even more really significant updates so quickly after the last release.
https://openmw.org/2021/post-release-catchup-party/

Particles are welcome of course but Lua is big news. That will eventually make every aspect of the game moddable.

Well. As you can see, quite a lot. I have marked those which I consider essential for my own plays in bold text.

And these are the big texture replacers without plugin and normal maps I use all together:
... but don't ask me in which order I have installed these replacers to get the consistent result. I have written it somewhere, but don't remember currently where :D
