I hope one day MM will get something similar to OpenMW or Daggerfall Unity

The role-playing games (I-X) that started it all and the various spin-offs (including Dark Messiah).

Hello,

Check out those projects:
https://www.dfworkshop.net/
http://openmw.org/en/

Those projects are (from scratch) engine reimplementations for Daggerfall and Morrowind. Both projects are playable, allows modding etc. Those projects depends on original game data, so it requires less work (no need for remaking assets).

I hope some day someone will make something similar for MM6-8. This could allow many cool things like:
  • support for any resolution
  • support for new operating systems
  • texture replacements
  • models replacements
  • modding
  • etc

There is one project (which i know about) for MM8, but sadly looks like it's dead now:

Pretty sure there is few project like that. If you check this forum, there is pinned thread with "total remake" which basically is just that, think last commit was just a couple month ago so its not complitelly dead yet.
Of course MM community(specially modding) is barely a faction of what TES have, so its hard to expect project that is on same sclae as one for Daggerfall. If we see effort put into Skyrim mods, and even fraction of that would be put into MM games , we would be with at least several MM fan games by now, specially considering MM world size is fraction of what any TES game is.
