It is recommended use Mod Organizer 2 to install mods. It creates a virtual Data Folder which makes it easy to re-arrange and install/uninstall mods.<BR>

Some of the mods need special installation instructions as a lot of Morrowind mods are not packed properly for use with MO2. <BR>

[http://wiki.step-project.com/BasicMW BasicMW] is a short and vanilla-esque guide that focuses on a simple and performance-friendly <BR>
+
setup with enhanced graphics. Consider starting with the BasicMW guide for a faster install.
+
 
+
=== 1.F Installing Mods ===
+
For most mods that are hosted on Nexus there will be a direct download link in the guide. To make use of this perform the following:
+
<BR>
+
1. Go into Mod Organizer, then to settings (the button with tools in it) and the Nexus tab. <BR>
+
2. If you have an account you can log-in there. Click "Associate with "Download with manager" links. <BR>
+
3. Drag & drop all servers except for CDN (free) and Europe#1 (premium) to Preferred Servers. <BR>
+
4. Click ok<BR>
+
 
+
If you download a mod with a direct link you simply have to go to the Downloads tab in MO and double click the mod you just downloaded. <BR>
+
Always choose install manual (if not it will be noted in the mods instructions). MO wants the contents of Data Files folder on top.<BR>
+
These are /meshes, /textures, /icons, etc. If it says "looks god" you can click ok and let it install. If it says "No game data on top",<BR>
+
you have to find the Data Files, right click it and click "Set data directory". Click ok and check the mod in the left pane.<BR>
+
You can uncheck unnecessary files and folders like screenshots, readmes, docs etc. But notice that I won't notify that if it's not necessary.<BR>
+
<BR>
+
The following pictures will explain the process:<BR>
+
 
+
[[File:install mods 1.JPG|800px]]<BR>[[File:install mods 2.JPG|800px]]<BR>[[File:install mods 3.JPG|800px]]<BR>
+
 
+
If you have to download a mod that is not on the nexus you have to perform another step. Download the mod and drop it manually to ...\Mod Organizer\downloads. <BR>
+
It should now appear in the Downloads tab in MO from where you can perform the installation as described above.<BR>
+
Alternatively you can click on the small Tool button with an arrow, click install mod and lead it to the archive.<BR>
+
There are some mods that are packed in a complicated way. If that is the case you will find detailed installation instructions.
+
 
+
== 2. Mods ==
+
The guide is meant to be installed in order from top to bottom. If you don't like the look of a mod there are suggestions for alternatives that are meant to be installed <u>instead</u> of the Main mod.<br />
+
If the instructions say to install something on top, it means after the main mod.<br />
+
Installation instructions won't be provided for alternatives. <u>Read the instructions carefully to avoid problems!</u>
+
 
+
=== 2.A Fixes & patches ===
+
Note on OpenMW compatibility: This requires selecting the non-bump mapped versions of mods.

=== 2.N Optional Quests ===
+
 
+
This section gives some recommendations for additional quest mods.
+
The expansions for the great houses have some compatibility issues so I advise to pick only the one for House Redoran <u>or</u> House Telvanni. <br> This may be extended but for now it contains only mods that extend existing quest lines or add new stuff in a lore friendly way.

+
|-

=== 2.O MWSE Mods Optional ===
+
 
+
This section is dedicated to a wave of new mods based on NullCascade's Morrowind Script Extender 2.1 Alpha (MWSE). <br>
+
MWSE 2.1 is still in alpha and gets very regular updated through nightly builds. Also it's incompatible with OpenMW. <br>
+
Make sure to update it regular through MWSE-Update.exe in the Morrowind Folder and also check the mods for updates!
+
 
+
1. Download the latest [https://nullcascade.com/mwse/mwse-dev.zip MWSE Nightly Build].<br>
+
2. Install the contents of the .zip to the Morrowind directory (not the Data Files folder and not with Mod Organizer!) and overwrite existing files.<br>
+
 
+
With the newest Version of Mod Organizer you can simply install MWSE Mods with it. Make sure to keep the MWSE folder checked when installing mods.<br>
