Just Reinstalled oblivion..


Recommended Posts

I just reinstalled oblivion (actually I bought it on steam as I lost my hard copy) and I can remember all of the best overhauls like F:Com etc. but since I have a better computer than I did when I played oblivion last, I wanted to crank the eyecandy up. What are the best visual mods for Oblivion? I know about Qarls and ENBs, so what other things to increase the visual aesthetics?

Two recommendations for in my opinion essential mods to install:


'Detailed Terrain' for smoother transitions between exterior ground textures. Install with BAIN for easy removal in case you don't like the effect.


And a favourite of mine - the more sophisticated SpeedTree models from here. Makes all shrubs and trees have more branches and foliage.

I just didn't install the daphne shrubs because their models don't go well with the textures I'm using for them. The mod's readme isn't too clear about where to put the files: The folder 'Trees' from the archive must be placed into the 'Data' folder, NOT into 'Data\Meshes' as the most recent post in the mod's comment section erroneously states.


If you stumble upon any tree models in the game world you don't like (see my example with the daphne shrubs), simply delete their .spt file(s) from that folder. The game will then go back to using the vanilla tree model from the meshes BSA.
