    Yes but Morrowind felt MUCH bigger.

    I don't know where they get the idea it was bigger. It sure as heck felt smaller.

    The only good parts of Oblivion compared to Morrowind were the mechanics and the graphics.

    1. Radiant AI is a step in the right direction.
    2. Combat feels better in oblivion
    3. Graphics are better
    4. Lots of small things like traps in dungeons.

    Everything else was better in Morrowind.

    I hate the consolization of every game series that's worth playing. But, I accept I'm a minority.

    Re: Morrowind has cured my D2 addiction!

    i loved morrowind. and elder scrolls oblivian too.
    spent countless hours playing those games
    i agree that morrowind felt larger than oblivian
    my one complaint about the games was the way they scaled everything
    you can make level 60 and return to the starting area, and every
    creature or bandit will now be decked out in the best gear in the game,
    and be just as hard to kill as when you fought them at level 2
    i never found that sense of power you should expect to feel

    Well, I finally got my Oblivion working again. I'm such a graphics whore.

    Anyways, there are always mods to stop the enemies from scaling with you.

    There's a rumor of Elder Scrolls V which motivates me a little to play Morrowind again.

    I just replayed Morrowind and finished it for the first time.

    Re: Morrowind has cured my D2 addiction!

    Anyways, my video card kinda fried, so I'm back to my old computer with an awesome (not) integrated GPU. So I'm kinda stuck on Morrowind right now. Any good mods you guys want to suggest?

    (Did not read a single post in this thread before posting myself)
    I do own Morrowing and it's expansions but it's always hard to play a game when it has a much more modern sequel.

    Re: Morrowind has cured my D2 addiction!

    Morrowind has some brilliant mods.

    Off the top of my head:

    Real Signposts
    Balmora Tower
    Morrowind Comes alive
    Water Life
    Where are all the birds going?
    Goldenrod (or something, it adds a town named goldensomething)
    Tamriel Rebuilt 1 and 2
    Animal Realism (But, I often make my own mod to reduce suicidal animals) or Passive Healthy Wildlife
    Suran Underground
    Better Books
    Book rotate
    Tons and tons of graphical mods - I use Quarls and Darknut's
    The lighting mod
    Interior weather
    Illuminated Windows
    Super Adventurers (Which contains better bodies, heads, all bethesda mods, and tons of gameplay tweaks)
    Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    There's a lot more, but I'm at work. Just run through the list at planet elder scrolls and Thelys'.

    There's a graphical enhacer/scripting support system I use also that opens tons of mods, such as trees and grass that move in the wind, real shader 2.0 water, and a lot of other effects.

    I also tweak the ini file to enable decent quadratic lighting.

    If you're willing to put in the time, you can make Morrowind look extremely good for a game that came out almost a decade ago.
