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:

Hi people :)

I recently got a new computer and lost all the mods for my save game and can't remember them.

I am looking for a house.

You use portals located near the doors of normal houses to get there, there is a huge room with maniquins for armour, and room with oversized display cases for weapons and armour.

Please PM me if you know of the house I am seeking....

I really need to find this.

Action most likely... What's funny is one of the main complaints about Oblivion is it's lack of RPG, and overabundance of "action".

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.
