Oblivion News Digest 2
Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Christmas has come early this year for Oblivion, with plenty of great mods being released these last two weeks, ranging from houses to armor to new races. Not to mention a few Christmas-themed ones.

Mod of the Week
It was very hard to choose this week but at long last I decided on one, Woodland Village by Shezrie (It’s the last one on the page). This Wonderful little town is located on the road between the Imperial city and Skingrad, if you get lost don’t worry. There are signs along the road that will set you on the right path. The village contains 23 buildings including a bakery, an inn, and a buyable house. There are also several stores and houses for all the villagers. There are also two quests for you to do in addition to exploring the town and stocking your home with your loot.

Other Mods I Considered for Mod of the Week

Kendos Demon Consort by Kendo 2
mjy nebinay castle by mjy
Better Cities of BananaSplit by Bananasplit, Reckless, Wolfslady, and Several others

And this last one I just have to include due to the subtlety with which it was suggested to me in the previous discussion thread: Armamentarium for MOBS by herrjork

So see? Be creative about your suggestion and it might just end up in the news.

Oblivion Modding Digest 1
Wednesday, December 5, 2007

At long last the Oblivion modding news post has arrived. As both Kellen and Ascension64 have explained before (in the NWN and IE sections respectively) this is going to be a bi-weekly post occurring on every other Wednesday. It will cover major mod releases, noteworthy WiP mods, news, and anything else I think of that fits.

WiP mod of the week
This week the WiP mod of the week is FCOM.
This downright amazing mod created by dev_Akm combines 4 of the largest mods for Oblivion and allows them to work together: OOO, MMM, Oblivion Warcry, and Francesco’s Leveled Creatures. All these mods combined make Oblivion a massively different place, adding around 1,300 new weapons, 1,600 new shields and armor, over 1,300 new Creature variants, and over 2,300 new NPCs. It also removes almost all level scaling making for a very challenging experience. Also in preparation for the upcoming 1.0 release Vini has created an amazing trailer for FCOM. The link for this can be found in the FCOM thread linked above. The trailer is very large but well worth every MB.

Released mod of the week
And the winner is...Blue Destiny Armor for Exnems! Created by Lady Blue.
This is a great retexture of the Darkness illusion armor that is (you guessed it) blue. Many thanks to Lady Blue for this great armor. 

Okay since I can’t find any news today the news section will be replaced with a poll. The poll this week will be: “Do you use OOO in your game of Oblivion?”
Please leave your vote in the discussion thread!

Final thought for the day: Why is it that doctors call what they do “practice”?
