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:

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. I never did get around to finishing it.

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

may I suggest Morrowind? though the interaction with npcs is mostly text, they all seemed to have personalities. And IMO it was a superior game.

Maybe your idea of genre is getting in the way of you enjoying a great game? I agree as an RPG it is quite lacking in the traditional sense, but just as a game, i found it spectacular. I was completely surprised, having not played Morrowind prior (i have since played purchased and played Morrowind.) I can see many ways Oblivion would benefit from the implementation of features from Morrowind, but there is no good cause to criticize Oblivion.

Didn't it bother you that no one - not even your own character - had a personality? Every NPC was the same, and there were no dialogue options that let your own character have a personality. There was no motivation to finish it, because there was nobody you cared about, and you already know where the plot is going.

Which, in my opinion, made the game boring.

Quest mods can help fix this. Integration The Stranded Light in particular has 24+ hours of silent dialogue for the NPCs added in its 80+ quests. It also has race/sex/faction ranking/situation/skill/etc. checks that recognize your character's actions/skills/appearance either just to recognize it, or as a way of completing a quest. So that adds some personality and uniqueness to your own character as well.

It's kind of like real life. The core game is the day to day blandness of going to school/work, doing basic bodily functions, etc. and mods are what makes up the actual interesting components of life like: love, friendship, thought, morality, conflict, etc.

Hmm, thanks. I might try that mod out:)
I'm playing Nehrim right now, and so far I'm liking it a LOT more than oblivion(Great music).

Highest Rated (8 agree) 10/10

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…
