    I just recently finished replaying oblivion heavily modded up and it was goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood. Highly reccomended, but some mods like the 2 texture pack mods can take a while to download (3gb in size for the pair if i remember right...)

    and as for mod sites this has already been posted and has almost every oblivion mod listed http://tesnexus.com/

    I have some awesome texture packs as well. As simple as it is I think probably the single best mod is the one that drastically increases the level of detail on terrain when your in the "outside world".

    How do you DL mods off that site? I can't see any DL links.

    Its one of the best games ever made. I got bored of it after about 400 hours though.

    i used to just jump in and try mods and make new characters like trying different combinations

    i used to have a fire spell with a huge radius it was like 1 hit kill kinda backfired tho it killed everyone including random citizens


    my favourite mod is one where an argorian follows you around and you eventually help him do a quest you can give him armour and stuff to use basically becomes a partner in crime!

    also multiplayer oblivion mod is SICK!

    I know that Argonian mod, its called Ruined Tails tail, I have it. Its very cool indeed. Does anyone know how to reduce the MP cost of spells? There s a bunch of spells which are likely wicked cool but they take something like 100,000MP :twitch:

    :twitch: Now that might be interesting, all I can come up with is there are 2 mods for doing this. What are the differences, and is it more like LAN or online? And how do mods work with those that add new areas or change terrain?

    Anyone notice the real big downfall with Oblivion? Merging all the mods. Takes bloody ages.

    Amazing, I just saw this thread and this is just what I did a few weeks ago.
    I wanted to do a comparison of a game that I had on my QX9600 Vista rig with the same game on my newly build i7 OC to 3.8 GTX285 using WIn 7 rig so I chose Oblivion.
    With all settings maxed and a number of mods the performance on this test rig is amazing, and.... of course, I got hooked again.

    Ah so you havent tried the mod, which one have you heard is best? I'm really tempted to install Oblivion on mine/gf's comps again and test out the MP.

    Here's one link

    Download is here - Forums Seem to be here?

    and here is the other, but this one seems development has stopped, not sure which would be more buggy as the first is in Beta stages.

    The Other

    I'm gonna install Oblivion again and give the 1st a shot, see how buggy it is, if it's bad give the 2nd a shot, if thats bad, maybe cry and move on, I think Obliv would be far more fun as MP, solo just doesn't excite me a ton.

    That's because you don't yell at the NPCs while you are playing. Things like, "Get out of my way jerk!!", or "Hey baby, let's dance".

    Okay, I may be going insane. :D

    The big thing, as with Fallout is I can't stand Bethseda's choice of camera angles for conversations with NPC's. Dead on right in the face, yes they are detailed, but when I talk to someone I don't stand nose to nose with them.

    I really like how Bioware does it, I haven't playing MAss Effect, but in the KOTOR games, the angles are always a ways back, giving a full shot of the person you are talking to and your character, just a better feel. And sometimes the block/attack mechanics makes it feel like cheating. Also spell casting almost seems useless (but I could be wrong here as I didn't try it much).

    You don't like the closeness of dealing with a character on-screen in a computer game?
    Okay, I'm not going insane. You are. :laugh:

    Switch to 3rd person view. The reason they do that is to show off the graphics, which I must say is pretty impressive.

    The 3rd person in Oblivion is unbearable, can't stand the horrid animation for strafing slightly and walking forward, you just end up walking forward and hovering a bit sideways over the ground.

    But I still don't think that fixes it, as when you talk with any NPC they talk to you face to face. I'm just saying I don't like starting at a box with someones head in it, as their head almost takes up the whole screen. When I talk to someone in person I don't stay fixated on their head, I look around a bit and stand back (like I said not nose to nose :p)

    Anyways gameso n my comp with MP mod setup, and just finished installing on gf's comp, hopefully this will work. There is a public server up, but I'm going to try setting my own right now.

    I prefer 3rd over 1st person. You get to see way more eyecandy.
