Default Starting a new (modded) Morrowind play-through

September 3rd, 2013, 21:56
Hello all. Just wanted to promote my new Youtube channel a little bit. It's a gaming channel for play-throughs of various RPGs and I'm kicking it off with a new Morrowind play-through. I'm using MGSO 3.0 and a ton of other mods, so if you want to kill some time then come on over and check it out! This is my first time commentating in a Youtube video so don't rip me to shreds . I want to get better, though, so if you have any constructive criticism feel free to share! Thanks for reading and happy gaming!

I'm envious that you have the time this. I've been dying to replay Morrowind for a long time.

It looks great, but why are you playing in 1024x768 resolution?

I'm playing in 1920 x 1080 with all the bells and whistles. Those settings in the menus are actually overridden by a program called MGEgui.exe. It's basically a program that lets you set all your graphical settings and what not.

Thanks for checking it out! It's been a ton of fun and I barely started.

Are you running the Steam version? Just curious how easy MGSO 3.0 was to get installed.

I found MGSO 3.0 to be a very easy install on Steam. Worked just as I would have expected on a normal install.

Nice videos, Fluent! I had forgotten the massive looting. Looks great, too!

I tried to do a replay a while ago after playing through Skyrim + Gothic 1 and 2. I just couldn't. It was just such a massive step down in terms of gameplay compared to Skyrim. I was actually surprised by the size of the gap between the two.

Anyway, good luck with the channel and the replay, looks like you're having fun.

Oh, I'm having a blast, really. It's fun to have an audience while gaming (or at least for now, a perceived audience ).

I love the gameplay in Morrowind. Skyrim is great, too, but there's something about Morrowind that makes it a lovely, relaxing experience. I also use combat mods and what not to make the game a little more modern. But still, it's very fun, even if it is an older game now.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who took a minute and checked out the videos! Very much appreciated. More will be coming soon and hopefully this will be quite an extensive play-through, so feel free to subscribe to see them all…

Sure! I'm going to make a video showing all the mods as soon as I figure out how to capture desktop video.

You guys should all subscribe to my channel. I'm going to be uploading a full playthrough so you'll see a ton of modded Morrowind. I also hope to provide some decent commentary along the way.

Here's a video I just uploaded today. It's part 7 of the series. Just showing off a bit of the Bitter Coast region, which looks gorgeous in HD. Check it out!

Here's a very short video I just shot to show off a little of the "Distant Land" feature in MGSO 3.0. A beautiful panoramic view! And enhanced rain!

Looks good. What are your system specs btw?

I don't know about that mod that requires you to drink water and catch your breath, etc., though. Seems like that would just get annoying after awhile.

Thanks for checking it out!

I like the Necessities mod just for the added realism, I guess. I may disable it if it becomes too annoying, though. I did recently double the day duration so I don't have to eat, drink and sleep as often now. That helps a lot.

System specs are:

Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz
8 GB RAM
Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
256 GB Samsung SSD
750 GB HD
AMD Radeon 7970m GPU (overclocked to 925/1400)
Blu-ray Drive

It's an Alienware M17X R4 laptop.

And I'm using a Logitech G700 Gaming Mouse to play with.

Here's a pretty funny video where I die a lot trying to kill the ever challenging "mating Kagouti".

Don't mess with those Kagoutis when they're mating…

That's a tough encounter for a level 1 Mage.
