Greetings SureAI team community!

Hey I wanted to let you know about OpenMW, which is an open source reimplementation for Morrowind. It will also have a new open source alternative to the construction kit. This means it can use Morrowind data. I'm not allowed to have url's as my first post, but I will update this later with relevant links. Just do a youtube search for OpenMW 0.29.0 (the latest version so far). If you go to the MrOpenMW channel and look under videos you will see a playlist called "Feature Specific Videos" where they show that it's not limited to Morrowind graphics. This playlists includes tests with bump mapping, parallax maps, specular maps, etc.

The OpenMW community wants to create a small standalone game or example suite to show off the engine. These will not include Bethesda owned art assets. It would definitely be beneficial if SureAI chose to use OpenMW for their next project.

After Enderal's release your team could use OpenMW engine and thus be able to change any source code you needed included menus, game formulas, features, AI, etc. I have no idea about Enderal's release date, but let's say it takes a year or two to finish development. By 2015 or 2016 OpenMW will probably be in a complete state that you could use for a new game. A game that anyone could download without needing to already own a Bethesda game and which could run on even old computer systems. Anyways, good luck with Enderal. It looks amazing!

after updating the post at the German forums, a quick heads-up for you English-speaking folks.

Yesterday, the OpenMW team released version 0.39.0 of our open source reimplementation of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind! OpenMW provides a modern, flexible and freely accessible engine natively running on Windows, Linux and MacOS X. The slowly but surely approximating Version 1.0 will be a full-featured reimplementation of Bethesda's engine, minus bugs, plus some minor features (e.g. an improved alchemy window, or better looking water).

In the future we will de-hardcode our engine to allow modders to change whatever they want in order to create their own modifications - or even completely new games! Our home-brew editor, OpenMW-CS, is in active development too. It will provide all functionalities of the original Construction Set, and more, while being easy to use and highly customisable. Additionally, we will extend the capabilities of our engine to keep pace with modern games. We recently added support for normal, specular and parallax maps - and more shiny features are coming in the future.

If you always tinkered with the idea of playing Morrowind again - this is your chance. Our engine is basically feature-complete, only some minor features are missing. You should be able to play through every quest of the main game as well as both add-ons without problems. The main things to do before releasing version 1.0 are bug-fixing and work on our editor.

Please note that you will need a copy of Morrowind to play the game using our engine. We support every localized version of Morrowind. Visit our Wiki for installation instructions and further information.

I will add the release announcement to the follow-up post. Thanks for your time! :)

Best regards,
