|Balmora Expansion (1.4) - File Description
| Description: |
What this plugin does, what it includes and its history: (The Long Version aka THE BOOK)
Over a year ago Gilgalas introduced a WIP mod on the forums called Balmora Trade City, an exciting concept that combined a number of popular mods effecting Balmora into a single compatible plugin with some new material. Like Silgrad Tower it had some open slots for interested modders should they want to join the project. It made it to early alpha stage but never got finished. Gilgalas is the inspiration for this work. I loved the idea but hated the implementation as it appeared as a random collection of mods that lacked cohesion, remember it was only an alpha and I'm sure it would have been awesome if it ever reached completion.
I took the alpha with Gilgalas's knowledge stripped it apart and began to regrow it, that was over 8 months ago. Balmora Expansion represents the end result. In addition to the new shops by CandianIce and Jeremy, and the new content I created, Balmora Expansion contains either the complete mods or parts of mods listed below.
This mod is really little more than a showcase for the awesome work done by the community as represented by the mods below. There were so many great mods to choose from I could not possibly include them all, I simply had to draw the line someplace. In some instances the mods had to be tweaked to make them fit into the storyline and feel of the city. An example of this was Faarp's Quiver's and Fletching Kit V2.5, his original NPC was standing on a street corner; in Balmora Expansion that NPC now shares a shop with her sister who specializes in selling bows. Together they operate an archer shop. In some instances only parts of mods were used such as GhanBuriGhan's The Regulars - Sitting NPCs where I only used some of his sitting people not all of them. Also I have included the original readmes for all mods used in this so you can see the full list of credits. Anyways on with the lists:
***Balmora Expansion includes the following new mods created specifically for it:
*Vonhelira's Metal Queen Boutique by CanadianIce, featuring all new fashions for both male and female players. Special thanks also to MP*Canus and Brady226 for the textures of some of the male versions of the robes in the boutique. For all those who pleading for a second store, your pleas have been answered.
*The Breton Knight by Jeremy featuring not only all new armor styles but also Jeremy's first store designed specifically for selling his awesome works.
Plus the new stuff I created. (You have to figure out those yourself, can't give away all the surprises).
***Balmora Expansion incorporates the following mods that should be unchecked in the MW data files list if you are currently using them:
Morrowind Abodes (Your Balmora Residence.esp only)
Dave's Furniture Store Plug-In v1.6
Quivers and Fletching Kit
Carry your Bedrolls
DEJ Pocket Watch
ThievesGarb (Black Clothing)
Dark Club Mod 1.1

LadyE's display cases, spider webs ad jewelers sign
Dongles Musical Instruments
Gorg's Flowing Capes

|.ace is just a "version" of .zip that covers more files (e.g. .ace, .rar). I earlier did not have the ability to open .ace files either. But then i did the below |
double-click the file that is .ace
after that, choose the " Use the Web service to find the appropriate program" option
then the internet should identify what ace. is for you and give you a link to another site
on that site, download Ace archiver, and then install it and you should be able to open .ace files successfully

|it is possible that the only reason the file is small is because it has been compressed (as mine was) |
of course, there is an equal chance that this is not the case

|This is a great file man, thanks for making it. The only bad thing is that my comp lags when I am in Balmora now, but it still rocks. It's one of the best mods I have, thanks for making it/editing it... |

|Hey y'all, |
Thank you so much, all of you, for putting together this incredible mod. It took hours to download it because I have a low-end connection (56k), but it was all worth it. I have downloded many mods for Morrowind, and some of them just didn't work. This is the biggest mod (or file of any kind) that I have downloaded, and from what I can see so far, it all works beautifully. Once I installed it and took a look around, I just had to stop playing long enough to thank all of you for making a great Morrowind experience even better for me! Again, thanks for all of the fun I'm about to have with this mod!!!

|I used WinRar to open this. Worked perfectly. A good alternative that you may already have installed. |

|I noticed that this mod lagged Balmora so much that I got rid of it. It was just too annoying. |
