Continuum
-Morrowind Expansion-


Foreword

For a while now I have been setting up my game, creating my mod list and getting ready to plunge back into morrowind. Part of this preperation has been to adjust, combine and clean various mods to keep my ESP's as low as possible.

As part of that preperation, I took the offical plugins, modder made variations of those plugins and my own modifications and combined them all into one mod. Since then I have had the odd request here and there to send people this plugin which I dubbed "The unoffical expansion".  Recently I have been thinking about this more and more and decided, there is enough content for at least a minior offcial expansion should Beth have ever decided to  do anything with their plugins.

But I didnt stop there, there were various mods which also fitted the criteria that could be considered part of an offical expansion. I talk of course about the multiple mods that exist that add in various missing Beth Meshes that were made and included on the MW, TRIB and BM discs but never used.

With this in mind I looked towards other things, such as the expansions and how they are intergrated into MW and vice versa. I also looked at mods that could be considered 100% lore correct; Mostly creature and armor varients.

In essence it is a compliation of BETHS plugins with fixes, and intergrations of its unused meshes. Theres also a little free-creation such as adamantium shields (beth has nothing for them but its seems that Adamantium should have shields!)

I present to you now, after my ramblings, the full changes/additions that the Unoffical Morrowind Expansion will contain.

11/9/2013  EDIT - After much after thought and disscussion I have decided to Focus ONLY on BETH-LORE. This being, only using BETH-Created mods and meshes. I want to create an unoffical-offical expsnsion so as much as I love things like Adamantium shields, the shields are not BETH-LORE. I also wont be adding/doing anything that is covered by the Morrwoind Patch Project or the Bloodmoon Patch. This is to prevent conflicts and duplications.

I've tried to avoide Main Quest effecting changes, alot of the ideas in this mod have come from other mods, some are direct mergers of those mods with this one.

Cany you think of anything else? Rememeber must be strictly LORE CORRECT.

Oh there is a Nordic Silver spear in the Bloodmoon BSA that never got Implemented either Might I request that that gets added too? I think it would be nice to see it in the game. I like using spears with some of my characters. And with the outcry for spears to be added to Skyrim I would guess that I am not the only one. The mesh name is w_nord_spear.nif .
I was planning on adding it to the game my self when I get around to making the Shinnied Silver Weapons: Bloodmoon Edition. that I plan on making, but it might be a while before I get around to it. Any way that is just a suggestion.
This would certainly be a welcome addition to my load list as it will save me some esp slots. I will be awaiting it's release.

Just out of curiosity, which Adamantium Shields plugin you using? The one by Dongle, the modified by Slartibartfast1 of Dongle, or the one by Turjan?

The nordic silver spear will be added.

SH - Its the smoothed dongle ones :)

Updated the list with more implimentations. This are not BUG FIXES (leave that to the patch project) but rather tweaks that ingame dialogue suggests (in terms of ingredients), also set some plants to respawn and removed reflect from boar riders.
