Elder Scrolls mods that improve dungeon design

#1imasexywomanPosted 4/27/2014 7:57:16 AM
I've actually never played an Elder Scrolls game because I keep hearing the dungeons are awful. Are there total conversion mods that are focused on great dungeons?

It is the end times for console gaming. All hail PC and 3DS.

Skyrim actually has pretty good dungeons. I would say they are a significant step above Morrowind and Oblivion.

I didn't mind the dungeons in any of the above, other than that Oblivion recycled a handful of dungeons which when combined with the scaled loot made the dungeons feel a lot more generic than in Morrowind. Also, Morrowind still had a bit of the classic Elder Scrolls quasi-horror vibe in dungeons which has not been present in Oblivion and Skyrim, which kept a bit of suspense in some dungeons.

Anyway. I'm pretty sure some of the content mods add custom dungeons, but I wouldn't be able to say which are an improvement.

You should try it first instead of blindly taking people word for it. Play vanilla first then mod what you don't like

While I may not agree with your opinion, I will defend to the death your right to have it.

Yeah, the only mods I'd install blind are the unofficial patch sets

I hate any and all Elder Scrolls but if that picture is in any way true, then the dungeons in Skyrim ARE terrible, and thats just a fact.

This. If anything is wrong with the dungeons, it's lack of variety with enemies at times(doesn't really bother me, though). Skyrims dungeon are actually hand-crafted and look really awesome.

Those dungeons don't represent all the other dungeons in their respective games.

And you can't judge them all based on something like that and seriously say it's a fact. That's just foolish.
