    OMG you reminded me of Oblivion!!

    I'm still experimenting with The Sims 3, haven't yet finished the last 2 download packs of Fallout 3, am halfway through Assassins' Creed, just started Left 4 Dead, Cryostasis and Prototype....

    Dang they're all awesome games (Oblivion being one of the best) and I wish that a day had 48 hours so that I can game as much as I need to game....

    Yes, and when you do post which mods you are using since I've been thinking about playing Oblivion again. :D

    You'll love Oblivion it rocks :cool: I'll have to muster up the effort to put all the mods I use together and start playing. Just a mission for me... all the mods I use total up to something like 5GB.

    Yeah, I'm getting up there myself right now, got the FCOM pack and UL, and adding other things as I go, and following a decent addon ordering that is said to work, gonna try the big ones soon, then add little ones beyond that. So far addons folder sitting on my desktop is 5.24gb and theres quiet a few more addons I'm eyeing up. All these are in the goal of making an amazing MP server if I can get all those bugs worked out.

    Oblivion's a great game, try getting all the plugins/addons too. I've finished most of the quests now, right now I tried killing most of the people in the Imperial City, Anvil and all the inhabitants of Cloud Ruler Temple while I'm wearing the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal. :p


    I didn't save after that though, just wanted to see how fast I can go.

    Theres a lot of awesome mods on tesnexus, from what I've seen though they don't have quarls texture pack, borderless cryodill (essential as some mods build on the unused areas of the map beyond the invisible border) or the 4096*4096 LOD mod.

    Take a look there, thats where I? got Qarl's and the boarder mod, granted I guess you can just change a text file from a 0 to a 1 or 1 to a 0, can't remember which and it will drop the boarders.

    Just pickup that boarderless mod on the site I linked, it's one file you drop into the Data folder.

    I have been having problems getting Mods to run. Do you guys have a few must have Mods that are easy to install?
    I have really gotten back into Oblivion, I was using it as a test game but started playing it and am now up to Lvl 14 and closing gates. I have the Knoghts of the 9 expansion but I have not installed it yet.

    The single biggest essential mod for me is the LOD replacement. It pissed me off no end when I firsh played oblivion and had nasty low res splodgy distant textures.

    Yep I second that, game looks far better with the mod. I also agree with the Kurgan about third person view animations.

    Is that the Landscape_LOD_Texture_Replacement-2182 file of about 21 Mb size?
    If so I was unable to get it to work. Perhaps I did not install it correctly but my game would not start until I removed it.

    Its difficult finding some mods for oblivion now, try this link; http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2182 I don't think thats the 4096*4096 LOD replacement mod, but the 2048*2048 LOD replacement mod that was made for weaker cards. Still looks nice though, I used to use it.

    On the subject of terrain mods, what do people think is the best (as in most realistic and nice looking) grass mod? I was never able to really find a decent one.
