2 different ID's for "The Annotated Anuad"

The Literacy Campaign quest for requires you to give a copy of The Annotated Anuad to Vala Catraso in the school in the Ald'ruhn Mages Guild. The problem is that there are 2 identical versions of this book in Morrowind_ob.esm:

FormID | EditorID | Name

011800DB | 0bkUAnnotatedAnuad | The Annotated Anuad

011800DC | 0bkUChildrensAnuad | The Annotated Anuad

If you get the wrong one, you can't turn it in for the quest. I suspect the confusion arose because there actually is a Children's Anuad in Oblivion.

Game is Controlled by FormID

Game is Controlled by FormID and EditorID.

It is a Quest Item so how can you hand in the Incorrect Quest Item.

Oblivion Should not effect Morroblivion different FormID ,

Oblivion 00,Morroblivion 01.

You can't hand it in. From in

You can't hand it in. From in game there's no way to tell them apart. The 2 books are identical, so if you have the wrong one, there's no way to understand why the quest doesn't work unless you open TES4Edit and see the problem.

Well, this looks like a mess.

Well, this looks like a mess. I don't know where "0bkUChildrensAnuad" came from, wiki doesn't mention it and I don't have Morrowind installed to check if it existed there.

Easiest solution would be to just make the quest accept either book.

If I recall correctly, for

If I recall correctly, for that quest you're supposed to steal the book from the governor of caldera, which is probably why it has a separate id

There is actually no confusion with Oblivion going on here.  The two records are 100% accurate conversions of the Morrowind records.  The quest problem is just as qwertyasdfgh has suggested: The original Morrowind Quest had two separate quest-dialog branches to handle both books, but Morroblivion only reimplemented one of those branches.  I've added a simple boolean OR condition for the unaccounted record, but I'm not sure if it will work and haven't had time to test it.

However, it should be noted that both records have identical in-game book titles and text in Morrowind and Morroblivion.  Most likely, the Children's Anuad was supposed to be in Morrowind but the content was cut due to lack of time to create the text and artwork.  So we could consider restoring "cut content" by replacing the record contents of the Children's Anuad with what is in the Oblivion version.
