Honk If You Love Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind

You can find an incredibly thorough walkthrough of how to enhance your Morrowind world here:
If you want to run Morrowind under Linux, btw, you need the latest release of Wine. You may also wish to consult the Unofficial Elder Scrolls wiki here. Personally, I had to install the FGLRX drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 2600 to get things working. So, if you despise closed-source drivers, you’re probably out of luck. Unless you take a look at OpenMW, perhaps, but I know nothing about that yet. 😐
The game can take a few moments to start, especially with many mods installed. Also, you cannot edit the controls — the game crashes. Other than these annoyances, the game works more or less perfectly for me.
EDIT 1/22/2010: After comparing performance of more-or-less identically modded Morrowind installations under Wine on Linux w/FGLRX drivers versus running on Windows XP, I’ve found that I get nearly double the framerate and MUCH, MUCH faster startup on Windows. Not surprising — I’m just glad this game works in Linux at all, and will patiently wait on the slow completion of OpenMW. 🙂
