Download either the high or low preset, extract to the Morrowind folder.
High suits systems with a dedicated graphics card best, while low is best for integrated such as Intel HD series.
Then generate distant land with grass at 100% density and all plugins. Disable grass plugins in launcher before starting the game.
Go to the ingame tab and fill in these light settings: Quadratic - 2.619, linear - 0, constant - .382.
