Morrowind: Sword of the Perithia

A. Sergoyan's mods page offers downloads of Sword of the Perithia a total conversion modification for Morrowind that apparently offers somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-80 hours of gameplay. Thanks sauron1.

I would give this Mod a look, but since Bloodmoon is coming out soon,

I got an email from EB (who I ordered it from) saying the ship date have been pushed back to 6/30/03, yet looking on their site just now it says 6/3/03.

Either way, it looks like we won't be getting it next week (not that EB hasn't pulled release dates out of their ass before)!

Hmm, that's weird. It did for me. Maybe I'm using a newer version than you are, or perhaps an older version...

*shrug* I'm quite happy with Winzip, just annoying that Winzip won't put out a version that will work on .rar archives (since Winrar will happily open .zip files)

I would give this Mod a look, but since Bloodmoon is coming out soon, I'd rather keep my limited Morrowind attention span focussed on that

As far as I know, WinRAR doesn't shutdown after forty days. I've been using it for quite some time and it has't shutdown on me once.

diddn't the guy who made winrar die? I remember seeing something about that a while ago, I thought it was free now or something?

(edit) nevermind, answered my own question, it must be under new management...

This is a great mod, lots of humor and very clever use of the TES Construction Set. Andres Sergoyan put this entire thing together himself, and he did a fantastic job. Highly recommended.
Note that it IS a total conversion, once you go to the main island in the mod, the quests back on Vvardenfell are not going to work. So be sure to diverge your game save files.
And congrats to Andres for the props on BluesNews!

I think the reason more people don't use Winrar is because it deactivates itself after 40 days, where Winzip doesn't.

I usually install Winrar when I need it for something, then reinstall a backup, so my registry stays clean.

I can understand that the winrar programmers need to make money somehow, but I fail to see why winzip can remain free and winrar HAS to cost people money?

And I HATE winrar's icons

Heck, that happened with me with the main quest of Morrowind. I got to the point where I was supposed to get the tribe leader a wife, but the right options never came up in his text screen. Kind of lame.

besides, the file is a *.zip file, meaning that you can use any unzipping utility to extract it. and yes, that includes winzip.

so before you get your leetness in an ego knot, try extracting it first with winzip.

ROFL, winrar doesnt even take up that much space. its not even THAT hard to use. im surprised why more people DONT use winrar, seeing that its a lot better at compressing than zip files.

oh, and you dont need to be a "733Y d00d" in order to install winrar, idiot.

An uninstaller would still be cool so you could delete all the skins, textures, meshes, sound files, etc., when you were done with the mod. You're right about enabling mods in the Morrowind menu. You'd still have to do that. I'd just like an easier way to clean out all the crap when I'm done.

And in my defense, the page does say the following:
You will HAVE to use latest WinACE (2.x) or WinRAR (3.x)
or PowerArchiver or FREE ZipGenius to be able to uncompress the mod files.
Nothing about Winzip there. Maybe winzip *will* unzip the file but are there meshes or other resources contained in it that require those other less-common archiving tools? Who knows? The page doesn't say. It's pretty emphatic about what you HAVE to have though. 1 A/\/\ N() 733Y d00d with a hardrive full of warez that I need to have winRAR on my PC.

An installer/uninstaller like Darkloader for Morrowind would really be unnecessary because you enable or disable mods from a menu before running Morrowind.
I have played most of the way through SOP and it's pretty good, the landscape is nice (but will be harder on your framerate than Morrowind) and there's some good humor in it, as well as being more puzzle oriented. I think I broke something however as I cannot seem to finish it.

If you can't install mods for Morrowind, you shouldn't even be playing PC Games. It really can't get easier then unzipping a mod into the appropriate file folders, and then clicking the box next to the mod's name in the start up screen.

I suggest playing a PS2, or maybe an X-box. That might be easier for you.

Umm..winrar and winace are just compression utilities (like winzip) not installers. Compressed files for quicker DL's is always welcome. Its not an uncommon way to distribute mods, cracks, fix's etc.

Easy to use...hardly complicated.

As far as the mod...anyone try it? Played thru original MW but after countless hours of running around it started feeling a bit bland. The game itself ran pretty good for me (none of the problems I read other people having), just felt like the gameplay was missing something

No, you don't need Ace or WinRAR just to install it. It's a regular .zip archive. It works fine with my normal unzipping software. Some sort of mod installer/uninstaller would be nice, but otherwise you just unzip it into the directory anyway so it's not a big deal. I think the only reason they mentioned needing the latest versions of those various uncompression programs is just in case someone has trouble unzipping it.... maybe they used a newer zip method or something.

But wow, that page really puts me off. Do I really need Ace, or WinRar or whatever just to install it? God, I went to the link on how to install the mod and it just doesn't seem worth it. Somebody needs to create a Morrowind mod installer and uninstaller, like the Thief community did with Darkloader (a totally excellent tool!). Barring that it's really not so hard to create an install exe with something like InstallShield. I use Inno Setup a lot:

Totally free, no programming required, and it lets you uninstall your programs too.

I'll keep a watch on this mod though and see if it might be worth installing some day.
