Peoples favorite graphics mods?

Post by Veggicide » 24 May 2018, 21:08

I previously ran MGSO but switched to openMW. I liked how MSGO looked, so I'm looking now for what mods people use for improved textures, graphics, ect. I've been looking through the mod section on the wiki, but there is no description for the mods and so many options, so I'd like everyone's favorites :)

Probably a minor thing, but I like Arukinns Better UI. It's nice thematically, and unlike the other "dark UI" mod I've seen, is actually darker and not brighter than the default UI, which makes it easier on the eyes for me.

After trying some of them, I still prefer the original Morrowind. Add the fact that OpenMW makes the game look better and I really don't need any! :)

Lysol has some really nice texture packs. I like Roberts bodies. I remember seeing someone here is working on a graphics overhaul. Mostly you have to cherry pick from armor and weapon retextures.

Lysol's works and Robert's Bodies are faves, as well. Also like DarkNut's creature, weapons, and world textures, Connary's Dunmer Stronghold, Imperial Forts Normal Mapped (vanilla version) by Flash3113, Lougan's landscape retextures, Lazy's Grand Solstheim, Daedric Ruins Retexture by Bloodinfested, KetGolosov's mods (Potions and Beverages Retexture, Swirlwood Furniture Retexture, and Paper Lanterns Retexture), RR Mod Series - Better Meshes, and the "Long Live" textures by anarkhya... just to name a few(!).

Thanks all for the suggestions! Quick question, with Darknut's textures I don't see any esp files, how do I install them?

Install as you normally would and add the data path to the mod in openmw.cfg.

Here's a more long-winded explanation (for Windows) because, well, I do tend to go on a bit:
Spoiler: Show
Hope this helps!

So if I have the texture files in a path as follows:
...Morrowind\Darknut's Creature Textures-43420-1-0\Data Files\Textures
That folder containing all my .dds files, should I put this into the cfg file:
data="...Morrowind\Darknut's Creature Textures-43420-1-0\Data Files\Textures"
or this:
data="...Morrowind\Darknut's Creature Textures-43420-1-0\Data Files"

Thanks!

No prob. You would enter it as: data="...Morrowind\Darknut's Creature Textures-43420-1-0\Data Files"

Just in case you haven't already checked out the OpenMW Wiki pertaining to modding, which provides a wee more detail: https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title ... stallation

Have fun with your build!
