Essential Oblivion Mods

#1iangeofriesPosted 8/3/2013 6:52:46 AM
I'm installing the game fresh for the first time. I figured it'd be easier to just ask what's essential than try and wade through years of mods.

I know I need Oblivion Mod Manager. I figured the Unofficial Patch is necessary too.

Anything else? My BIGGEST concern is something to fix the leveling system. I do NOT want enemies scaling with me. Thanks!

-To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

You got all the DLC right?

For the leveled stuff you do have a few options

Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul

Marts Monster Mod (more monsters and such but has compatibility patches for the above)
http://oblivion.nexusmods.com/mods/17784/?

FCOM, which is the above 3, and Warcry(older overhaul) and a few others.

The installation instructions and such, use it if you dare.

Tamriel Immersion Experience(for stealth characters)
http://www.dreamingthepyramid.net/TNR-home.html

Frans is best for first timers who don't want the game too much harder or different and OOO is for those who want more challenges and content. Use MMM with either one you choose (but don't use Frans creature add-on with it). FCOM for those needing something completely different and T.I.E for thief/stealth characters who want a world revolving round their type.

Pick whichever of the 3 you think looks best. Then NEVER uninstall it.


Magic Overhauls
Supreme Magicka\Less Annoying Magic Experience (LAME)\Fearsome Magicka are all magic overhaul mods designed to make playing with a mage much easier and more fun. Fearsome Magicka adds an entire new system where as the other two just make the stock vanilla spells better, add new spells as well as making magic more dangerous. They can all be used together.

Just pick one(or all of those) if you think magic needs to be better.
