The ambitious Skywind mod which aims to recreate all of Morrowind using the Skyrim engine has received a new progress trailer. Development progress in the trailer showcases new environmental and architectural 3D assets.
The mod's developers make clear that the version number 0.9.6 doesn't mean they're close to a 1.0.0 release to the public. Goals have changed in the mod's development resulting in a lot more work that needs to be done before a public release. The full statement as follows:
Regarding the update version. 0.9.6 does no necessarily mean we are close to a 1.0.0 release. When the project first started, it was originally going to be a direct port, in which case version 9.0 was very close. However, as goals changed, we realized there was so much more to do than initially thought. 0.9.5 came out in October, and there is a lengthy gap between each major update. These versions are not an accurate representation of overall progress towards a release, but instead milestones to keep track of. When we have more information on a beta or a release, we will let you know. Sorry if this is misleading, it was not our intent.
