Active Morroblivion Bugs and Fixes List 2020

Update: Morroblivion v065 is released.

Please download the latest version of Morroblivion for the latest bugfixes and updates.  New bug reports and issues should be reported on the Morroblivion v065 Bug Reports thread.



I will collect and maintain an updated list of bugs and fixes for 2019-Dec and beyond.  This first post will list the known bugs that are not yet fixed.  A second post will show a list of the bugs which have been fixed. Bugs and Fixes listed in this post assume player have installed Morroblivion v064 + Morroblivion Unofficial Patch 2017-Dec-18.

If you would like to help with the community effort to create a Unified Hotfix Addon which merges all hotfixes since the last Unofficial Patch, then please go to this page to read more about how to help.  You can post new bug reports or bugfix confirmation below.


Main Quest

- Dagoth Ur's Final voiced dialog lines when entering the heart chamber are not played.


Tribunal Expansion

- Unable to advance in Tribunal Quest due to missing dialog topics. Workaround: must advance at least to Antabolis Informant in Morrowind Mainquest.
- Disloyalty among the guards: can not complete quest after finding evidence that Ivulen Irano is a traitor. Can not confirm bug. Bug reporter probably confused correct note with Irano's copy of Common Tongue.
- Bamz-Amschend: fight between Dwemer automatons and fabricants (faction relations bug).
- Her Hand's armor: conflict between Greaves and Greaves and Boots. Can wear Her Hand's Helmet + Devil Cephalopod Helm.

- Text in books and scrolls are displayed with formatting tags visible.
- Hrothmund's Barrow: riddle is not voiced.
- The Skaal Test of Wisdom: quest breaks if choose to you feed Rigmor to wolves and then quickly kill 3 Caenlorn Wolves before they kill Rigmor. Tharsten is supposed to berate you and Rigmor is exiled anyway.
- Mead Hall: You can consume the Heart of the Udyrfrykte because it's not marked as quest item (Vanilla Morrowind bug).

- Raven Rock Tavern: stairs have invisible walls underneath.
- Raven Rock: smith: wears both ebony and adamantium helmets at same time.
- Frostmoth Smugglers: if smugglers are killed before starting quest, multiple dialog inconsistencies will occur, quest stages are advanced prematurely.


Side Quests

- Fargoth's Hiding Place: Fargoth may somtimes appear to stutter when approaching his hiding place and does not place items there. Workaround: follow-him around in first person or, use the Wait/Sleep key to keep waiting in in one hour increments until Fargoth leaves his hiding place.

Here is a list of bugs I've

Here is a list of bugs I've encountered while playing Morroblivion v.64. I am also using the latest version of the Morroblivion Unofficial Patch, the merged hotfix addon, the Morroblivion magic addon, and the Unofficial Morroblivion patch magic addon.

- The barrel in the intro with Fargoth's Ring of Healing respawns, ring included.

- The Sanguine Ring of Sublime Wisdom (held by Anel Rethalas) causes a crash, seemingly due to an incorrect biped flag. Changing the biped flag from right ring to left ring prevents the crash.

- Teris Reladran tells you he will pay you 100 gold during the quest A Man and His Guar, however he will actually pay you 200 gold. The quest log also reports 200 gold as the promised payment.

- If the player has already killed the smugglers in Gandrung Caverns before starting The Frostmoth Smugglers quest, multiple dialogue inconsistencies will occur, the fort will have already been attacked the moment the player steps outside, and Captain Carius will have already gone missnig despite the player just exiting the room he was in once the quest starts.

- If you have already killed Dovres Verethi before starting the quest The Verethi Gang, Eydis Fire-Eye will pay you twice upon turning in the quest.

- Carecalmo is hostile to the player by default, so the player can never deliver the Morag Tong's ultimatum during Ultimatum for Carecalmo (he did actually have a bit of dialogue in classic Morrowind before attacking). Killing Carecalmo will also not update the quest log during the same quest.

- The bandits in Odibaal, Dandynea Rothalen, Daynasa Tharen, Duldresi Senim, and Ulvon Uleni, fight each other.

- The bandits in Andasreth fight each other.

- Holmgeira, a friendly nord woman outside of Addadshashanammu is friendly with the player and hostile to the nearby daedra. She was also friendly in classic Morrowind, however I'm not sure if she's supposed to be hostile to the nearby daedra or not.

- Ash Ghouls can sometimes cast a spell with a broke/missing mesh. The one I encountered was in Sennananit.

- Ash Ghouls carry clubs, however they are unable to use them as they are technically creatures and (I believe) their skeleton doesn't support weapon animations.

- Crashes can occur near Pelagiad, Hla Oad, Caldera, Ebonheart, and other locations. The "wait 3 days for things to reset" method resolves the problem, however I'm unsure of the cause.

- The smugglers in Zanabi are friendly to the player, which seems to differ from their behavior in original Morrowind. Placing your cursor over one of the smugglers, Tilena Thalor, causes a CTD.

- Llaynusa Othran, Gurak Gro-Bagrat, and Velsa Salaron are immediately hostile to the player and their own guards upon entering Gro-Bagrat Plantation.

- Scribs and Kwama Workers become hostile to the player if they see you attacking Kwama Warriors or Larva, which are hostile by default.

- Approaching Feruren Oran when he is alive causes a crash, making completion of the quest Writ for Feruren Oran impossible. The crash does not occur if Feruren Oran is dead.

- The player is rewarded with gold for completing the quest The Shirt Off His Back, however the reward in classic Morrowind was The Belt of Iron Will. Unsure of whether this was intentional or not.

Aside from that, I also recorded the ids of misplaced objects from the Oblivion tree addon. The West Gash in particular has many misplaced trees and roots. Are fixes for that also being worked on here? You may also want to look at the Patch for Purists mod for classic Morrowind if for nothing else than typo fixes. It looks like Morroblivion missed a lot of things that patch fixed.

Sure thing! Let me know if

Sure thing! Let me know if you need any more details on the issues I reported. Here are a few more I found:

- The occupants of Shishara fight each other

- A single daedroth still uses original Morrowind assets, editor id 0DaedrothBaldas. The Unofficial Morroblivion patch swaps all other daedroths over to the Oblivion model.

- Three dunmer in an small ashlander camp, Antu Assarrimisun, Selk Muddumummu, and Zairan Enturnabaelul, are hostile to each other.

- Everything in Sudanit Mine, including the ebony, is unowned, however the npcs in the mine claim that the guards will arrest you if you are caught taking any ebony.

- Two ashlanders outside of Elanius Camp, Zainat Ahalkalun and Shara Atinsabia, will fight each other.

- The Ancient Nordic Pick Axe has the word pickaxe spelt as two separate words in its name.

- The Succor Of Indoril incorrectly capitalizes the of in its name.
