The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Modding Guide I recently had to reinstall Oblivion and mods so I decided to make this guide. This is my own Oblivion modding guide with my own preferences, take what you like from it. NOTE: Do not use cracked .exe or you won't be able to use the OBSE modding-tool. Buy the game or use gcw mini-image. NOTE2: Use non-localiced version of the game (US version) to ensure that mods work. NOTE3: Install Oblivion to the default directory. It will make your life easier. NOTE4: When you download a mod, read the README file and always install all required files. I. Before you begin 1. Learn modding basics: Oblivion Modding FAQ - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net Installing Oblivion mods - Planet Elder Scrolls 2. Configure and tweak Oblivion to get the best gameplay: See Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Tweak Guide 3. Register to Tesnexus and Planet Elder Scrolls: The Elder Scrolls Nexus Planet, The Elder Scrolls 4. Update Oblivion to latest version (v.1.2.0416): The Elder Scrolls 5. Install Unofficial Oblivion Patch: Unofficial Oblivion Patch at The Elder Scrolls Nexus - Oblivion mods and community 6. Install Oblivion Mod Manager: Oblivion mod manager at The Elder Scrolls Nexus - Oblivion mods and community 7. Install latest version of OBSE modding-tool: OBSE 8. Run Oblivion.exe before running Mod Manager (game loads .BSA files and creates Saves folder) 9. Check out this Load Order Guide II. Oblivion Mods Group I: How to make a "Beautiful Character" See this guide to understand the different methods of creating a character To make a pretty character you need: 1. Body mod 2. Hair mod 3. Voice mod 4. Face mod 5. Clothes/armors 1. Body mods: Most popular body mods are Exnems, HGEC and Robert's Female Body mod. Most armors are made for Exnems / HGEC (HGEC is updated version of Exnems), so I recommend to use either one. Exnems: Exnems Underwear Body Undies New Textures Exnems Nude High Rez Skin Textures for Exnems HGEC: HG EyeCandy Body High Rez Skin Textures for HGEC HGEC Body Seam Reducer You can use Luchaire's Neck Seam Concealer mod to hide neck seams. 2. Hair mods: These two are the best hairpacks, get both: Soya Hair Pack Rens Beauty Pack 3. Voice mods: Anime voices is the only one that I use Anime voices Custom Voice Tutorial 4. Face mods: This is my own personal Face mod list. You can customize your character's face using showracemenu cheat Required mods for elf faces: Rens Beauty Pack (adds Mystic Elf race) Beatiful People v.2.7 Elf faces: Sia Mystic Elf Raewyn Mystic Elf Eva Mystic Elf Tommy Mystic Elf Mystic High Elf-Remake Nec Elf Kaleah Aeryn Mystic Elf Siliana Lineage II Elf Elves of Lineage II + Patch 1.5 (Beautiful People will conflict with this mod) Promising looking, haven't tried (these may require other mods): Imperial Girl Tamara Dark Elf Eileen Telvanni Imperial Girl Aliyah (requires Natural Faces mod) Imperial Girl Albani Celii Violet Elf You can search Tesnexus for more (keywords "save", "elf" or "imperial girl"). It is also possible to import face of an NPC for the player character. See this guide. 5. Clothes / Armor / etc: My own personal armor mod list: HGEC/Exnem armors List of Armors Dark Illusion Armor Diano Armor Apachii Goddess Store Amazon Armor Blood Elves Armor Sorceress Armors Crimson Armor Deceiver Armor Blueness Lion Armor Goddess Armor Alexanders Wings ShadowSilk Outfit Dancer Clothes Sorceress Outfit Twilight Assassin Armor Rogue Outfit R18PN Armor and Dress SG Cloud and Nobydy Sexy Warrior outfit Gloria and Trish Armor Black Luster Weapons and Armor White Goddess Armor Wearable Undies Catsuit Black Assassin Armor Witch Queen Ritual Robe Drow Witch Robe Eshmes Female Clothing Lingerie Set Void Armor Dancer Clothes Recolor Mins Armor Warglaives and Silverlight Armor X-Blades Ayumi Set (armor and weapon) You can search Tesnexus for more outfits.
