Ever wanted to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with a friend? Those dreams are now a reality, my friend! TES3MP – that’s quite the mouthful – is a mod for one of the best games in the Elder Scrolls series. The mod is still in very early stages, so expect a lot of bugs and limitations, but it’s getting there!
Version 0.6.2 was released today, and it brings with it a couple of new features and fixes. The first new feature are NPC sounds and animations. Basically, your character can now emote using race-specific animations and sounds. Using the newly implemented /speech command, your character can speak NPC-specific lines and even perform NPC animations using the /anim command instead.
The next feature is that servers can now run console commands on clients. What this essentially means is that server scripts can do almost anything that the client plugin scripts do. As long as the server has access to it, the scripts are now expanded! This allows server admins to do things like preventing players from resting in specific spots, for example. This also retroactively fixes the attribute-boosting potion stacking exploit as well.
And now for the bug fixes. The first is that the game no longer pauses when its minimized. Before this allowed players to render themselves invincible and freeze NPC AI. Vendor inventory and trainers have also been fixed, and enchanted items retain their normal amount of charges. Quick Keys are now saved properly as well!
That’s about it. To update to this version, you’ll need to download the 0.6.2 files. Find your previous installation of TES3MP, move the “mp-stuff/data” folder from it to the new version and voila! You’re ready to go. You can grab 0.6.2 from the Steam Community page, as well as read the full patch notes.
