Thanks to Zenogias, Vorwoda_the_Black and GhanBuriGhan for this list that exists entirely as a result of their suggestions in this ES Forum thread, now lost - How to: Turn Morrowind into Daggerfall (somewhat).   Please see these Cautions - if using this list for the first time.


  • Daggerfall Khajiit Update 2

  • The Old Unused Well of Pelagiad
    by jman0war. Adds a quest to find out why the water in the Well of Pelagiad was making the residents ill, leading to a well-designed and large dungeon with the mood and feeling of classic Daggerfall dungeon crawling.
    Game Improvements & NPCs:
  • Daggerfall City
    by Richard "Alphasim" Heil. Adds a small Daggerfall-type city to Vvardenfell and several sounds, including the guards’ infamous "Halt! Halt!" from Daggerfall. Requires Tribunal and Giants 2.0.

Cautions: This is a mod list, not a listing of compatible mods nor a specific endorsement of any that are here listed. Some mods are likely to conflict with others. See Telesphoros' List o' Mods for play tested mods and some recommendations on compatibility.

Read the readmes and start small to avoid problems. Some of these mods may still need to be cleaned of "Evil" GMSTs. Remember also to always backup your files before messing around with mods (especially Data Files, Save Games, and Morrowind.ini).

See Starting Out With Mods first if you are new to mods or new to Morrowind for PC. It is recommended reading before you start down-loading mods and messing up your game.

Please note that some mod makers patch and version their mods quite frequently. Links on this list therefore may not always point to the most current version: it is often worth double-checking the author's home site or the major download sites to ensure you have the most recent release. Also, mods are not removed from this list because a download source is experiencing hopefully temporary difficulties: where possible, alternate sources will be included.
