Nvidia’s new modding tools will add ray tracing to almost everything, including Morrowind

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of modders clapping in unison because their job just got easier. Nvidia has announced RTX Remix, a free modding platform that allows you to quickly create RTX mods for “classic games” like Portal and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. This allows for an easier way to capture and modify content that takes advantage of all the goodness of Nvidia RTX.

It allows importing game assets into the RTX Remix with the push of a button (in compatible games) and converts the assets into commonly used USD (Universal Scene Description). This allows those assets to be easily modified or replaced using applications such as Unreal Engine, Blender, or Nvidia’s own Omniverse applications. According to the blog post (opens in a new tab)Remix makes it “easy to remaster DirectX 8 and DirectX 9 compatible games with fixed-function graphics pipelines.”
