ACE Atmospheric Sound Effects/ any Vanilla Friendly Sound Mod?

Does anyone know if ACE Atmospheric Sound Effects is compatible with rebirth/rebuilt/OpenMW? I know expanded sounds uses objects to create noises from a certain distance unless moving the esp before Morrowind rebirth in which case the floating objects disappear, but the volume imbalance with Expanded Sounds was the worst I have ever heard resulting in an almost unplayable game. So are there any more vanilla friendly ones? Like a texture replacer but for sounds?

Also, any recommendations for great story mods? Building up Ulvirith Legacy, Rise of the House of Telvanni, Ulvirith's Legacy, Balmora Underworld, Suran Underworld, Cult of Sheogorath e.t.c...?

You can try darkelfguy's quest mods. Interesting, fun and lore friendly.

I haven't used ASE is a good while. It does add nice ambiance, but some of the sounds (particularly the town and tavern sounds) can be rather garish. I've relatively recently started using Morrowind Acoustic Overhaul. The individual modules, MAO_Config, MAO_Weather, MAO_2d, MAO_3d, MAO_Vanilla, MAO_Regions, MAO_Creatures, MAO_Containers, MAO_PCSound, and MAO_PCVoice, seem to work fine (the MAO_ScriptExtender and MAO_Music modules don't work, as they require MWSE), and you can disable whichever ones you don't want).

The base mod is here: http://download.fliggerty.com/download-76-1045
The actual sounds (and music, but the music module doesn't work) are here: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0BwFTwfOo ... t=download

Wow, you know that would have been very nice to know that the sounds are not included in the main file of great house fliggerty website hence why for some reason MAO would not work. I spent an hour researching MAO and did not find that anywhere, even the discussion forum that Kuyondo pointed out to me which I had already seen, that discussion over there is more about expanded sounds and nothing about MAO.

Thank you for that recommendation. I ended up downloading most of his mods as they are really great and fit in with the game and nothing stands out. Also most of them are compatible with Morrowind Rebirth.

The link is in the readme in MAO's archive. Though for some reason the readme's an rtf file, which isn't the easiest thing to deal with on non-Windows systems.
