I just registered to say THANK YOU!!!! Keep the great work.

Thanks to you i'm paying Morrowind seriously for the first time in my live and i'm having a blast. I modded OpenMW with lots of community content, so i will probably update the modding support wiki page based on my experience. Can't wait to try the distant terrain feature.

On a side note, please consider adding the 0.42.0 news article (https://openmw.org/2017/openmw-0-42-0-released/) on your main page (https://openmw.org/en/). This, i think, is very important for visibility sake. As you know... some people think the project is dead or in a slow development state. That is far for true as we can see on this new version.

Again, thank you!

There's no twitter post?
My opinions are my own. I am just a thankful user of OpenMW with no affiliation with the dev team.
