    Oblivion Mods to Make Oblivion Look Better

    Post by Dark_wizzie on Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:15 pm

    I will be updating this list for a while, from time to time, and some more pictures. For now, it just includes mods on changing the way Oblivion looks..

    List in no particular order. Will make your game slower, but make it prettier.

    IWR Optimised (Adds smoke to chimneys, and lights from windows at night!) http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=6244

    Natural Enviroments (Changes some settings and adds some new stuff in nature. Does not have a big performance hit at all.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2536


    Ambient Dungeons (Some don't like it, I LOVE IT, and kindda low FPS penalty!) http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=18385

    Before
    After

    Sun Glare (Very minimal loss of FPS)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=16533


    Improved Fruits and Vegetables and Meats (Higher resolution for food.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=10487

    Before

    After


    Improved Signs (Higher resolution for signs)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=9498


    Diverse Grass (Higher resolution for grass)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=9279

    ENBseries Oblivion (This is a postprocessing technique to try to get more detail. Will slow down game severely!!!)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=26291






    Detailed Terrain (Changes how different floor textures are transitioned. Low fps hit.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=15245

    Quarl's Texture Pack III (Puts up higher resolution pictures for the game. Will slow down game quite a bit!!!)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=18498



    Bomret's Texture Packs (Like Quarl's, but way less computer intensive, but lesser detail)
    http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/View.php?view=OblivionMods.Detail&id=6165
    http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/View.php?view=OblivionMods.Detail&id=2701

    TESLODGEN (Changes blurriness of textures far away. Used for lod for mod content.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=15781

    Improved Amulets and Rings (Higher resolution pack)
    http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/View.php?view=OblivionMods.Detail&id=897
    http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/View.php?view=OblivionMods.Detail&id=881


    Intoxicant Improvement (Potions and drinks resolution pack)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5297

    Border Regions OMOD (Noticeable FPS hit.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=18497

    Immersive Interiors (To make the "outside" of an inside cell more realistic.) http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34199

    All Natural [Combination of 3 mods: Real Lights (replaces all fake lighting in the game with real ones), Natural Interiors (puts sound effects of outside weather inside), and Custom Weather System (Just a weather mod). This set will cause some FPS drop.
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=18305

    Improved Trees and Flora 1 & 2 (Increase texture size for flora)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=11891
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=8500

    Depth of Field (Blurs some background like the human eye perceives things. Try it out, some people don't like it.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=8771


    MTAEVWD (LITERALLY THE MOST COMPUTER INTENSIVE AND LAGGY MODS IN ALL OF OBLIVION MOD HISTORY. I DO NOT RECOMMEND RUNNING THIS WITHOUT 2011'S TOP COMPUTERS.) http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/View.php?view=OblivionMods.Detail&id=2420

    Bananasplit's Better Cities (Makes cities same cell as worldspace, plus alters cities to make them different. Hard to install.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=16513

    Open Cities Reborn (Makes cities same cell as worldspace. Might conflict with Banasplit's Better Cities, so pick one only.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=33003

    Open City Classic (Makes cities same cell as worldspace. Alternative to those that don't like the former. WILL conflict with Bananasplit's Better Cities for sure.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=16360

    Unique Landscapes (Changes many areas of Oblivion and adds higher quality areas of wilderness instead. Generally tries to make areas of distinction.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=19370

    MEAT (Upgrades weapon and armor textures.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=14660
    Before

    After


    Book Jackets (Various authors and such.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=16247
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5570

    Rusty Weapons/Armor (Retextures rusty armor/weapons so that actually LOOK rusty.)
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=7190


    Better Grass Texture Without Tilling
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2415


    Illumination Within Revived Optimised - Makes houses have smokes over their chimneys at night, make their windows shine bright from lights inside the house, etc. Small FPS hit.
    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=6244

    I edited Ambient Dungeon mod so it shows all over Oblivion, not just in dungeons!
