Patch for Purists
Step #1 in the Total Overhaul list
Patch for Purists strives to be an all-in-one patcher for everything in the The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition that is considerd a bug. I define a bug as: "an immersion breaking issue which was clearly not intended by the developers". This definition was the benchmark for creating this patch. Patch for Purists covers almost every aspect of the game. A complete overview of fixes can be found in the Patch Notes.
“What distinguishes the Patch for Purists from existing player made patches?,” you may ask. My purist approach kept me from introducing debatable and unnecessary changes: balance changes based on personal preferences, so-called improvements in gameplay, and adding of unnecessary stuff. These are changes which, according to me, do not belong in a bugfixing patch because they go beyond fixing unintentional immersion breaking issues. Unfortunately, these are the exact changes that plague most player made patches. These patches force purists to play an outdated version of the game and alter the experience of new players who are not aware of these unnecessary changes to the original game, as was intended by the developers.
It's worth noting that this includes functionality to limit discussion of the Solstheim rumor. So if you use this mod, others that do the same are not needed.
Non-English players, please also note: the "BookArt/MagicStoneMap4.dds" file this provides may overwrite non-english names with english names. If this is not desireaeble, omit that file.
