Hello and welcome to a small update!

I'm done with the realms of oblivion! However, there is some tweaking that still needs doing so you'll see screenshots of the oblivion plains in the next update. This update will focus on the caves. I gave them darker, more broody textures so they have the appearance of volcanic rock which seems most appropriate. Lit section glow in dark red and you might need a torch for the unlit sections. All in all I'm happy with how it turned out, but lets take a look at minor tweaks first:

Minor Tweaks

I have adjusted the leather shield to go better with the regular leather armor. The stark color difference was because there is another leather armor set in the files that seems to be unused in oblivion. (its active in some mods) The shield belongs to this set. The actual leather armor as seen on this screenshot was originally intended to be used as the thieves guild armor (at least so it seems). The new shield has higher resolution and detailed as well as darker leather.

Here you see the amelion-gloves with high-res chainmail aswell as a dirty Kvatch armor. Seeing how Kvatch was reduced to nothing but rubble, it felt appropriate to add some dirt and blood on the guard armor, seeing how they likely fought very hard before the players arrival at the scene.

I gave the palace guards armor a more metallic and less glittery appearance.

Mithril Armor

The Mithril armor needed only minor tweaks, in my opinion:

The new texture mostly differs in tone. Its less affected by the HDR rendering and goes better with the new chainmail, elven and glass sets. It also looks more like armor made of shiny metal rather than some kinda synthetic fiber. (the original always had that vibe for me).

Other tweaks include:

* High-res steel arrow quiver that fits better with most armor sets!

* No more neon-yellow Bruma guards

* Starting a mod to replace vanilla paintings with higher resolution, more alluring yet still lore friendlly paintings

And the Oblivion Caves:

Oblivion had a generic fantasy land and a uninteresting storyline about some big threat that everyone has to band together and blah blah. They basically got rid of the canon Cyrodiil jungle environment and Asian cultural influences for no reason (maybe marketing choice?), and gave us ridiculously repetitious dialogue and creepy staring eyes, auto-leveling of equipment & enemies to match the characters level (which can make the game really easy early on and really hard later on EVERYWHERE), and lots of hand holding that annoys many previous fans. Without much to show for it besides graphical improvement. Skyrim atleast feels fun with its archery, magic, large monster battles, dual wielding and smithing with lore consistent with what we previously knew about Skyrim.

Oblivion - Oblivion was a huge update in graphics over the morrowind game ... but what it lacked was the variety in models and textures that the mod community enjoys. Which made the game seem generic repeating the same characters, dialog, and ruins ... over and over again. And I think everyone agrees ... that the Oblivion Portal was overused too many times with the same generic buildings.

Magic is actually worse in Skyrim since spells were removed and especially magic making being removed. Also smithing is worse since you no longer have to repair armor and weapons after use and it's way too easy to level that skill up and make the best gear afterwards. Skyrim just doesn't have enough to make it better than Morrowind and even Oblivion. All it really has is better graphics despite the limited palatte of grey, white and brown, and Skyrim's story is even moreso generic and cliche than Oblivions story, so many medieval fantasy stories overused dragons as the main plot element and it's quite stale now. Skyrim has way more handholding than Oblivion had. The games basically went uphill until Morrowind and then downhill after.

Morrowind is still the best game toplay, and can easily compete with Oblivion and Skyrim with a Texture Replacer!

I can understand why the game gets a lower rating than Morrowind but I can't understand why Skyrim gets a higher rating than this, but then again Skyrim did attract more noobs of the series than Morrowind or Oblivion did so it's no wonder really.

You are exactly correct on that fact.

Elder Scrolls Online is actually worst... I'm so disappointed in the graphics, UI Hud, and gameplay mechanics!

The Elder scrolls is one of the best game series in the world! It is a great RPG, but it is a little simplified from Morrowind. The quests are simple, but great. The graphics is better than Morrowind and are easier to change in the TES Construction SET. The Story is Great, and it has a lot of side quests! I love the adventure trough Cyrodill and i recommend the game to everyone who love TES or RPG. If you think the game is boring, after played it a lot. Try some mods as: Nehrim: at faiths edge…

I can't stand this game. My favorite part of RPGs is talking and interacting with NPCs, but in Oblivion, the only options are "Rumors" or, the name of the city your in. The plot is dull, there are no interesting NPCs, and your character can't have a personality. I liked this game at first, but the longer I played, the more I disliked it.

A totally over-rated game, if you ask me.
