( I rather enjoyed Fable though, it was a nice tongue-in-cheek mix; the cheering crowds just became simply too much when I got cheered by admiring fans after having an hour or two of "fun" in the brothel. The little hero actually blushed there….)
Hmmm - I feel like I'm going a little mad here, because now I'm not sure if the above post was done by myself… Balmoran is the username I used on a few forums - it's still my username at gamespot/gamefaqs… ummm, and the abovementioned sentiments (except for the drivel about Fable - I hate Peter Molyneax's style, actually) could pretty much have been my own..

Hrrmm, -if there is another Balmoran, please stand up or forever hold your peace…

Anyway- that post was obviously done a while ago, because lately I have indeed tried out a few mods. The best 'head' mod for me, was actually "Vvardenfell Visages". http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.co…detail&id=5883

Be careful of texture mods. Some can make the place look worse. I made up my own texture mod with bits and pieces from other mods.

I also used Nangsid's taps and rugs, and another rug replacer, because I never liked the original rugs.

I also use animal realism (makes especially cliffracers less aggro) a bedspread and fabric replacer, a miscellaneous item replacer, and some textures that make the interior of Redoran buildings look absolutely beautiful.

Then also some additional sounds like marsh sounds, and a cool sealife mod… hmmf, I see I have come a long way from the time that I was still calling myself "Balmoran"

Yeah, in the end, if you don't like fiddling around a lot, you might want to go for one of those "pre-packaged" mod combo's, but i've found that there is always something in them that I don't like, especially if they change too much of the original Morrowind flavour.
