Today, we’re excited to announce that Skywind, the project that is re-imagining The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in the Skyrim Creation Engine, is coming to the Nexus!

In the past, Nexus discussion on the project has been moderated due to Bethesda’s stance that exchanging assets between their titles is not a situation they can condone or legally support. So for the past three years, the Skywind developers have been working tirelessly to rectify this by creating brand-new models, textures, heightmaps and audio. Literally hundreds of volunteers and more than an estimated hundred-thousand hours have gone into meeting this requirement.

The results are stunning, to say the least. Due to the incredible amount of work that's gone into recreating Morrowind from scratch, we are now able to happily support this project along with Bethesda. If you’re just now hearing about it or if you need a refresher, then please check out their latest developer video, “The Making of Skywind IV”. It’s a fantastic look at 4 years of hard work and a testament to the dedication of the team.

Much like modders have made all Elder Scrolls games the long-lasting successes that they are, the Skywind developers are hoping that the modding heroes here at the Nexus will join their ranks to become part of the team building Skywind as well. There are many varied openings for contributors, representing a wide range of skill-sets that I’m sure many of you who are reading this can fulfill.

Though there is no release date for Skywind yet, with your support we can help them achieve this ambitious endeavor. Every contribution is a step towards this goal, so if you think you might have some time and skills to offer, please visit them at the TES Renewal Project website and fill in the volunteer form to get started!

As it nears release, Skywind will be treated as its own title here at the Nexus. We’ll be opening forums and file repositories specific to Skywind with the intention that past and future great Skyrim mods can be built or patched to work within the updated framework that Skywind will offer. More info on that later. For now, be sure to check out their site and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on any progress.

So get out there, contribute, and make us proud. Have a good one!

It's pretty cool that it's coming to Nexus. I'm really looking forward to playing this because I have never played Morrowind which I immensely regret now.

Okaaay. So any idea when it is could reasonably be released, or is this just a promo for it.

No ETA but they are working hard. its still in alpha stage i think so it could be a while but i hope they release it before Elder Scrolls VI comes out.

Great to see this still being worked on! I've followed it for a couple years, and seeing it being publicly endorsed by the Nexus can only do good things for it. I keep wanting to help, but never feel like my skills are up to par. I keep following the progress and looking forward to a release date, though! Especially since I've never played the original Morrowind

I'm guessing this is like taking Morrowind and putting it up to skyrim's standards... at least that's what I assumed. But it's more like ESO, graphics and quality but they are certainly better due to their very real dedication.
