Nvidia’s new modding tools will add ray tracing to almost anything, even Morrowind

Hear that? That’s the sound of modders applauding in unison because their jobs just got a bit easier. Nvidia announced RTX Remix, a free modding platform that lets quickly create RTX mods for “classic games” such as Portal and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. This allows for a more straightforward way to capture and mod content that takes advantage of all the Nvidia RTX goodness.

It lets you import game assets into the RTX Remix at the touch of the button (in compatible games) and converts the assets into commonly used USD (Universal Scene Description). This lets those assets easily be modified or replaced using apps like Unreal Engine, Blender, Nvidia’s own Omniverse apps. According to the blog post (opens in new tab), Remix makes it “easy to remaster supported DirectX 8 and DirectX 9 games with fixed function graphics pipelines.”
