Morrowind Online

Morrowind

Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind had been my favorite RPG video game since about 4 minutes after I got it installed. It would have stayed that way until Neverwinter Nights allowed me to play with my significant other. Since that time, poor Morrowind has been resigned to “You would be first if only I could play online” place. This is why when I heard about the Morrowind Online mod that allows you to do just that, I became very excited.

The MO mod is easy to install and easy to operate. Both players must have the Bloodmoon expansion installed as well as the four pieces of the MO mod. Both players run a small connection program called bamf. One player connects to the other via IP or LAN, they both select the save game they wish to use and use the transfer button to exchange information about that save, then hit launch Morrowind Online.

Morrowind Online

This mod will create an NPC of the other player on your computer, and an NPC of the other player on the other’s computer. This NPC will move around, jump and act as the player on the other end is, however it is not the actual player. This is important because it means the players can’t fight each other. It also means that the other player can’t see or interact with the monsters on your computer, nor you theirs. When my partner saw a mudcrab and killed it, I saw nothing. Co-operative play is not yet a feature of this mod. Basically you can play Morrowind at the same time as your friend, but you can’t help them and they can’t really help you.

Still, I think this beta mod is useful and fun. Lets say you want to give your friend that glass armor that you have out grown. There is a barter barrel that comes with the mod that will allow you to pimp out a friend. If you just can’t find that NPC you need to meet, your friend can log on and lead you to him. My SO and I plan on leveling up a bit and then just randomly exploring Vvardenfell together (or rather, at the same time). There is more than enough content in the game to make that enjoyable. I look forward to more development of this much desired mod.

I'm a huge fan of Morrowind, and I think it would be way cool if there was a Morrowind online where tons of people could load up there characters or create new ones and interact with one another, like other online games. Ex: Runescape or Avalon, only way cooler. (Because Morrowind just rocks)

If you would like than you can help me and some of my friends with the continued development of this mod, we are trying to make it hold more people, work as co-op, have chat, and actually show what you have equipped. My friends may pull out there but I will continue to try and make this mod work correctly, maybe even add a trade command so you can trade directly instead of having to use the barrel.

I tried this mod.First of all...It's not really "A multiplayer mod"... it's more like a map mod of sorts where a friend can help you find your way and viceversa...Furthermore the barrel IS a good ideea but unfortunatly it would be better to just trade directly...I bow to the creator of this mod.He has a good ideea but his ideea MUST be .improved. Until thre's a mod that can REALLY add the multiplayer feeling to it..I'll stick to the single player version.Anyways.. Morrowind with both of it's expansions IS THE BEST GAME EVER...I'm going back to my wood elf tank (That's the wood elf race with a worrior class:)) )

i got files from file front that are esential FOR multiplayer, but i still cant go online or w/e. The idea of runnin round morrowind with other actual PPL sounds fun, you can have a big war and make you own countys. I'd wan Dagon Fel, land of the nords and my newest character, Olaf Longbrow. Nords unite! Anyways i want the multipplayer mod, if its real send me an email at: chicken_bicken9147@hotmail.com Thanks, and if it does work and i can get online and there IS a mod, then watch out, because Sheogorad Region is Olaf Longbrow territory ONLY!

Mods broken
crashes when ever you try to fast travel and when you save and quit the game one would think they can start playing again with your friend but wrong, it breaks the mod an leaves you with a broken save file that wont load the other person cause it says he is dead. But its a good idea, well heck id give you an A+ for trying... keep up the good work, i know its beta,
