No, not much atm.  Haven't had much time to mod lately, what with the new baby and all.  What time I do devote to Morrowind is done at work, and is thus limited to online projects.  :(

However, I will give a status update.  

I worked out very good formulas for pursuit timing and such.  Unlike Pursuit Enhanced, the further away from you the NPC is, the longer it will take them to come through the door.  So you can have more time to lock the door or set up your defense.  When you lock a door, the NPC may still be able to get through it if their security skill is high enough, have a pick, or have an unlock spell.  That portion works fine.

The integration of NPC behavior such as bystander fleeing and guard involvement in battles is about 75% done.  There are still some issues with guards fighting each other when you are in combat with them.  That is simple to fix, but not so simple to fix without killing the FPS.  So it needs a bit of revamping.

And the final portion of this is the enhanced combat.  It is perhaps 50% implemented.  I currently just have a modified NPCs Enhanced script.  It is placed on the appropriate NPCs and initializes properly, and combat is improved.  But it currently causes a CTD if the game is saved and loaded during combat.  I know how to resolve that, I just haven't.  I also still need to implement the other aspects of this, ie surrendering and preemptive spell casting.

I remember when you were starting this mod. This must be one incredibly complicated mod if it takes the great Fliggerty so long do work on ;-)
(Hope your baby hasn't been too much trouble for you! Rather, I hope you are enjoying your time with your baby)

I still have to say. When this mod comes out, it'll prolly be one of the top 10.

Fligg, I have a lot of your mods and you're amazing at scripting, one of the best I've seen and spoken to before.

But as for this mod, Jez. I can't wait to be  able to get this mod. All I hope is get it before Skyrim, cause once Skyrim is out, all my time will be on that game, so I wont be playing Morrowind anymore.

You ALWAYS return to Morrowind, no matter what shiny new game comes out, sooner or later, Morrowind calls you back. It's like the woman who loves you completely for what, and who you are, instead of the better looking one who only wants to toy with your emotions for a little bit.

My goal here is to entirely revitalize combat in Morrowind.

I hate to be bothersome, but I was wondering what progress has been made on this promising project.

Speaking of this old Necro thread...is any work still being done on Better Battles?  The last o-topic post about this was in June of 2013, and the last update we got from Fligg was in 2011...so it sounds like it's either been shelved or released.    In either case...I'd love to know if it's still out there somewhere.  Thanks.

I was wondering if this mod was ever finished and where I could find it. It looks like a great one by Fliggerty, as always.
