Is Oblivion the best Elder Scrolls game made? Indeed. That is to say, most likely. I would rather not start a fan war.
In any case, could the game be better? Obviously!
Whenever I first attempted to play Oblivion with mods was back in 2008. What’s more, from that point forward, I haven’t had the option to play any of my #1 single-player games without mods once more.
Obscurity changed my view of mods and why they can be fabulous increases to a game. Also, in this post I’m quick to share my picks for the best Oblivion mods with all you TES fans!
Before I start, let me simply call attention to that there are numerous Oblivion mods that change specific specialized parts of the game. I’ve just added a small bunch of those, as I truly needed to zero in on different kinds of mods like interactivity changes, new options, stuff like that.
To get going the rundown, however, I’ve added three mods in my initial spots that are truly appraised extremely high by the local area.
I’m simply positioning them lower on my rundown to raise your consideration towards them first – they’ll truly assist you with making different mods on this rundown work much better.
40. Informal Oblivion Patch
See, we all affection Oblivion.
In any case, rejecting that the game was buggy as damnation would be like attempting to cover the sun with your thumb.
This mod was made by the local area to assist with fixing Oblivion in general. Any reasonable person would agree that the task was finished as appropriately as anyone might imagine, as this mod as of now “fixes north of 2,500 bugs and 70,000 item situation mistakes”, as its portrayal peruses.
That is a lotta stuff.
A high priority mod on the off chance that you intend to play the game during the 2020s and then some – regardless of whether you need to introduce some other mods on your game.
39. Blankness Mod Manager
As the name recommends, Oblivion Mod Manager permits you to appropriately sort mods and see them more obviously than you can with the first Oblivion launcher.
It truly has an effect when you have many mods introduced.
In the event that you’re anticipating downloading in excess of a small bunch of mods to change the state of your game, you’ll need to have Oblivion Mod Manager introduced first. It’s a hotshot saver.
38. Blankness Script Extender
This other high priority mod on my rundown is OBSE, a unique mod that guarantees the game stretches out its prearranging capacities to permit more complicated mods to work.
This is another that you’ll have to introduce assuming you anticipate getting a portion of the better mods recorded here.
Author’s note: Starting from the 37th spot and downwards, the mods that you’ll find will be all positioned unsurprisingly on my rundowns. I simply needed to acquaint you with these three mods first so you can download them before the rest!
37. Truly AEVWD
I believe it’s to the amazement of nobody that the far off sees in Oblivion were horrible.
It’s reasonable, however, as the game was delivered for PS3 and Xbox. Also, even PC abilities were somewhat terrible, harking back to the 2000s.
Anyway, this astonishing mod plans to totally rebuild the manner in which we see stuff somewhere far off while playing Oblivion.
It further develops surfaces as well as far off delivering, which makes those mountains a couple of kilometers away, as well as towns and urban communities, look far superior and significantly more “characterized”.
36. Dynamic Map
This is the best guide mod that you can download – undoubtedly.
It fundamentally changes the guide to show whichever new things you might have added to it.
Assuming you’ve introduced mods that add new towns to Oblivion, for instance, they will show on your guide in the event that you have this mod introduced. Flawless!
It additionally adds tone to the guide which matches the genuine territory of Oblivion.
Regardless of whether you haven’t introduced any mods that change the landscape or anything new, this one’s as yet phenomenal.
35. Blankness XP
Man, as somebody who never truly preferred how one steps up in Oblivion, this mod was an outright godsent some time ago.
I can’t completely accept that it’s been over a long time since I attempted it!
Fundamentally this mod has an impact on the manner in which the XP framework works in the game.
You will not just get XP for playing out specific activities, for what it’s worth in the vanilla game. Rather you’ll likewise get insight for investigating new regions or doing trifling things like taking care of off cadavers as a vampire.
It gets insane.
Assuming you’ve played exemplary RPGs before you’re most likely acquainted with this sort of step up framework.
Tamriel is a spot loaded with life, animals, enchantment, and magnificence.
Be that as it may, the submerged districts of Cyrodiil are basically as dead as a body.
This mod’s point is to add new things and animals to be tracked down under the waves. So you really have a reason to go there other than to track down the possible depressed chest.
You’ll likely need an elixir of water-breathing or two once you have this mod introduced. That is on the off chance that you’re not an Argonian, obviously!
33. CandidENB Reborn
In the event that you’re searching for an ENB to work on your game’s designs by tweaking post-handling impacts, this is the mod to download.
Kindly make certain to peruse the portrayal and introduce it appropriately – it’ll cause your game to feel like something removed from a film.
Shocking perspectives anticipate the people who utilize this RNB preset.
32. Frostmourne and Lich King Armor
Indeed, this mod doesn’t actually suit the legend of the game, yet screw it.
I totally LOVED playing with it once upon a time.
Truth be told, I recall that my old PC couldn’t actually deal with the surfaces of the Lich King shield and it made my game laggy as damnation.
In any case, as the Warcraft fanboy that I was quite a while back, this one was an unquestionable requirement.
As the name proposes, it adds Arthas’ Frostmourne and the Lich King Armor to the game.
31. Better Dungeons
Man, discuss difficult work put into a mod.
Better Dungeons changes each and every cavern in Oblivion into something that looks much better, while likewise adding a couple of additional moving perspectives and highlights to every prison.
A phenomenal mod by and large, in spite of the fact that you could need to introduce it assuming you’ve proactively completed the game once. Just to not lose the embodiment of the exemplary Oblivion caves.
30. Charming Potion Bottle
Assuming you’re irritated by seemingly insignificant details like the moon not having sufficient goal, the grass not being adequately tall, or all containers being essentially something very similar… then, at that point, you could have gentle OCD.
However, you’ll likewise need to look at this mod.
It changes each and every standard jug in the game for significantly more appealing adaptations of themselves.
The mod adds a stunning 108 jugs altogether, impacting the manner in which elixirs and drinks search to improve things.
29. Book Jackets
Another awesome mod that you’ll cherish assuming you like the keep going one on this rundown.
This changes the fronts of each book in the game to make them considerably more exceptional.
It could sound straightforward, yet it genuinely adds a ton of character to Oblivion.
28. Obscurity Grass Overhaul
I realize this probably won’t be the primary thing that you contemplate working on in Oblivion, yet hold on until you add this mod and perceive how nature looks subsequently.
It adds large number of new surfaces to cause the grass to feel significantly more invigorated and practical.
By a long shot one of my #1 mods – even with the amount of a little change it appears to make.
27. Gather Flora
Gather Flora is a mod centered around further developing plant conduct too making plants change their appearance after you’ve collected them.
It’s a horrible idea for plants to continue as before after you’ve taken blossoms, natural products, or anything from them, isn’t that so?
That’s what this mod will change. Also, it looks wonderful.
Introduce this with the Oblivion Grass Overhaul to fulfill your desires for practical nature in the game completely.
26. HUD Status Bar
This mod will totally change the manner in which your HUD looks by adding many new bars and elements to it, all of which you can change to suit your necessities.
You’ll get a vastly improved handle of your personality’s necessities and the general climate of the game in the event that you introduce this terrible kid.
Add new bars and eliminate others that you needn’t bother with. Hello, it’s your game, you do you.
25. Hints of Cyrodiil
I realize this isn’t one of those mods that you could think you want. In any case, kindly, allow it an opportunity.
The maker of this mod made a point to add huge number of sound outflow focuses to the game, as well as a sum of 250 new audio effects.
All to cause each climate in Oblivion to feel considerably more invigorated and vivid.
The point of this mod is to rejuvenate Oblivion using new audio cues.
I feel that any reasonable person would agree the maker worked really hard with it. You won’t ever accept a portion of the subtleties you can see.
COBL essentially fills in as an across the board that further develops Oblivion and how it manages mods.
It permits different mods of a similar sort (like hair mods or eye mods) to work impeccably with one another, liberated from any bugs.
However, that is not all.
COBL likewise adds numerous new things to the game, including the capacity to sort your speculative chemistry things a lot more straightforward. As well as new sorts of lagers, food varieties, compartments, and a lot more things.
It genuinely feels like a bundle of mods that works faultlessly. I truly suggest you look at it.
23. Vivid Interiors
Okay, I won’t let you know that this is my #1 mod on this rundown.
In any case, with regards to little augmentations that improve things significantly, this must be truly outstanding out there.
In the event that you play Oblivion, you know how the designs feel as though they were all different from the external world, mostly on the grounds that they are.
Whenever you go into a house, things outside sort of quit occurring. With this mod you’ll have the option to be settling down anyplace inside a house and look outside the windows. Also, you’re truly looking outside.!
You won’t see any NPCs strolling around or anything… yet hello, it’s actually causes the game to feel significantly more invigorated.
22. Oscuros Oblivion Overhaul
Can we just be look at things objectively for a moment, folks: Oblivion was never an over the top troublesome game.
It didn’t much make any difference in the event that you set the trouble to the most elevated, the game actually didn’t feel as trying as other RPGs.
This expects to change that totally, and it works effectively at it. Assuming that I might say so myself.
Gone are the times of beasts adjusting to your level or killing animals that you shouldn’t kill so from the get-go in the game.
In the event that you introduce this mod you must manage a considerably more testing Oblivion experience.
It’s an extraordinary mod to introduce in the event that you’ve finished the game a couple of times as of now and you have the skill to beat most animals in the game.
Put your battle abilities to test!
21. Further developed Trees and Flora
Okay truly, kindly go introduce this mod with the grass redesign that I referenced before.
You’ll get a totally new impression of Cyrodiil and its normal undertakings on the off chance that you get both of these mods in your game simultaneously.
Add an ENB or some other graphical upgrade to your rundown and you will be set for quite a while.
Truth be told, whenever you’ve introduced both of these mods in addition to the ENB I referenced, leave on an undertaking through the woods and heaps of the game.
Get another grip of how they feel and how invigorated the world looks. You will cherish it.
20. Capes and Cloaks
Is it safe to say that you are prepared to overlook Edna’s recommendation and wear capes?
At the end of the day, what could genuinely turn out badly assuming you decide to make it happen? Dislike you can get your cape captured on a plane turbine or anything, isn’t that so?
Presently, continue and download this mod. I realize you need to wear a cape in the game however much I did!
Furthermore, I can read your mind and the response is yes – your personality looks very boss with a cape around his neck.
19. Improved Camera
Assuming that you’re searching for submersion and the choice to play whole game in first individual, this is the mod you need to utilize.
It fundamentally powers the game to continuously be in first-individual, no matter what.
However, that is not all. EC really causes first individual to feel considerably more practical by allowing you to peer down and see your own body.
I generally asked why games don’t make this a default look when in first individual. Yet, hello – wonder no more drawn out, simply utilize this mod!
See, the default UI of the game is really somber.
I think we’ve known this since the game previously delivered, as it generally appeared to be one of the principal grievances that the local area had.
That is most likely why UI mods have forever been so well known, and this must be one of my top picks.
The “red” UI has forever been famous among Oblivion players. Furthermore, I recollect that this mod (or a comparative one, in any event) was around when I played, harking back to the 2000s.
As a matter of fact, this one is by all accounts such a better rendition of the one I utilized that it’s likely a totally new one.
Regardless, check it our assuming you believe your game UI should look much better and proposition more helpful choices in your menus.
17. Improved Water
With regards to mods that cause water to seem more appealing, this one takes the cake.
I’m not going to mislead anybody – there are many, numerous mods that intend to make the water reasonable.
Be that as it may, the vast majority of them crash and burn with a vengeance.
Why, you might inquire? Straightforward: they make the water too precious stone understood, which makes it fundamentally a transparent surface.
That is really ridiculous and truly assists the game with losing submersion.
Yet, the Enhanced Water mod transforms the water into a tone of blue that genuinely looks like genuine water, while it additionally further develops the manner in which water looks when it “moves”.
Assuming you’re looking for mods that upgrade the game’s illustrations, this one is an unquestionable requirement to add to your assortment.
16. Elven Map Redux
I’m adding one more guide mod to my rundown, however not on the grounds that I think this one is superior to the final remaining one… yet rather in light of the fact that I figure more individuals will actually want to get a decent use out of this mod.
Elven Map Redux is a shaded variant of the conventional Oblivion map.
It has a couple of charms that cause it to seem significantly more appealing than the first one, as well.
Give it a shot in the event that you feel like the other guide mod has such a large number of elements for your loving.
15. Normal Faces
Despite the fact that this mod improves no graphical parts of the game, it takes care of business fabulously well to tidy up the muddled face surfaces that Oblivion has forever been known for.
The game is old, yet even once upon a time when it was new, you could see that something was a gnawed off with the person faces in the game.
Regular Faces intends to address those issues with colors, and with specific surfaces feeling a yet as well “extended”. Likewise for certain pieces of the lips not coordinating as expected with the talking livelinesss.
It’s a decent mod, and not generally so basic as it would appear from the start.
14. Climate – All Natural
This shocking climate mod is a gathering of the best climate mods at any point delivered for Oblivion.
Furthermore, it makes the game look a lot more practical that you won’t actually trust that you’re not playing a revamp of TES IV.
As a matter of fact, this mod is another that you’ll need to introduce assuming you’re after a more photorealistic variant of Oblivion.
Consolidate it with the designs mods that I’ve referenced on this rundown, yet particularly with the fabulous ENB preset that I discussed.
13. CM Partners
Yahoo, cool associates in Oblivion!
Assuming there was one thing that was absent from TES IV and that TES V got very right, that must be the sidekick framework.
This mod permits you to have a legitimate friend framework in Oblivion, which incorporates very nearly 100 NPCs to browse and to have as buddies pursuing you around the grounds of Cyrodiil… or into the profundities of Oblivion.
CM Partners additionally permits you to make your own sidekicks as well, and have them be with you at whatever point you like.
That most likely improves it than the Skyrim buddy framework in general. Which is saying something.
I know that having many keys in your inventory is so difficult.
I sympathize with your aggravation, old buddy. Anyway there’s a viable arrangement that will eliminate that annoyingly terrible mess and transform it into a sensible arrangement of things that you can rapidly look at.
This Keychain mod has an entirely precise name, as it gives you a virtual keychain thing where your keys will be all moved to.
Open the keychain and select any key you really want. Gone are the times of seeing those damn keys get stirred up with other helpful things while looking at the “All” part.
11. Obscurity Reloaded
Searching for an across the board realistic mod that you will not need to introduce in parts?
Assuming this is the case, you’ll need to look at the Oblivion Reloaded mod.
It was made by the very individuals that brought us Skyrim Reloaded as well as New Vegas Reloaded, so they’re very great at making graphical upgrades for games.
In the event that you don’t really accept that me simply look at this one for yourself.
Obscurity Reloaded eliminates a large number of the graphical limits that come installed into the Oblivion center.
It essentially sets free the post-handling part of Oblivion and adds a lot of new changes to nature, environment, and animals. A high priority mod for the designs devotee.
10. Kvatch Rebuilt
I think that one of the fantasies that many of us had when we played Oblivion for the first time was to rebuild the once-mighty city of Kvatch.
This mod doesn’t instantly rebuild it… but it does give you the chance to embark on a quest, and at its end, you’ll be able to fully rebuilt the city. And even become its new count (or countess)!
It truly turns the dead city of Kvatch into one of the best places you can visit in the game.
A lot of work surely went to this mod, as I remember this was just beginning to be created when I played in the late 2000s. And as of this writing the mod was last updated in 2019!
9. Immersive Weapons
Immersive Weapons is not your average weapons mod.
It has managed to take one of the best spots on my list because it adds dozens, if not hundreds, of new weapons into the game.
All of the weapons are fully integrated into all systems of Oblivion, which means the ones you’ll find are leveled accordingly.
This means that the mod adds many new weapons but they don’t break the game at all. They fit perfectly into the world of Cyrodiil!
The most important thing about this mod is that it adds variety, which is something that an old game like Oblivion is always missing.
8. Unique Landscapes Compilation
Are you looking to overhaul the natural environments of your game?
Well I think there’s no better way than installing the Unique Landscapes Mod.
It basically compiles many of the landscapes that have been created by modders through the years and it turns everything into a single mod that makes your game feel as alive as can be.
New waterfalls, fantastic new locations to explore, and many new small additions that turn the lands of Cyrodiil into a region that feels much more in-touch with nature as a whole.
7. Coronerras Maximum Compatiblity
This mod is the one to end all other skeleton mods in the game.
Before we proceed, let me just point out that that “skeleton” refers to the structure of characters in the game. It’s not about actual skeletons at all; but rather the models that define the physics of each character.
This mod won’t do anything by itself. But you’ll notice the difference if you happen to install mods that ad races that have wings, or stuff like that.
It basically makes all parts of the body capable of interacting with others and moving. A fantastic mod altogether with lots of custom options.
6. Rens Beauty Pack
I wasn’t really keen to add beauty mods to the list, although technically this one adds a whole new race.
So it deserves a mention in my opinion.
The race comes with variants and it also adds a bunch of new hairstyles for male characters and female characters too.
I mean, this one isn’t anything out of the ordinary. But the level of detail that was put into creating it sets it apart from other beauty mods.
A cool one to add if you want more customization options.
5. Oblivion Graphics Extender
In terms of graphical enhancements, this one takes the biggest slice of the cake.
There are many mods that make the game’s graphics more beautiful, but I truly believe this one to be the best of the bunch.
Combine this amazing mod with the Landscapes mod that I just told you about, and throw in the flora and grass overhauls, and you’ll be set to embark on one of the most unique adventures of your virtual life.
The shaders do require you to have a solid computer though. So make your your graphics card is up to par.
4. Alternative Start
It’s not fair that you always get to be a criminal in Oblivion.
I mean, even if you decide to live the purest of lives after the tutorial of the game, you’ll always have your reputation tainted for having been the one who broke out of the Imperial Prison when the game started.
This mod allows you to select how you start in Oblivion, as your character arrives by ship instead of breaking out of jail.
You can choose your race, your favorite attributes, and you can even select the type of person that you are (which defines how much money you start with).
It’s even your choice to select your wealth, which allows you to tweak the difficulty even further. A really fun mod with lods of replay value.
3. Better Cities
This is one of the most popular mods ever created for Oblivion.
Honestly, it’s pretty easy to understand why after taking one glance at what this has to offer.
Basically this mod adds dozens of new buildings and activities to every single city in the game, making them feel much more alive.
Gone are the days of cities being boring as all hell and feeling dead as a rock.
A must-have mod regardless of how many times you’ve played the game, but especially if you’ve been playing it on and off since release.
2. Midas Magic Spells of Aurum
I’m adding this one to the list because it was the first mod that I ever tried out for Oblivion.
I remember it was extremely popular back in 2009, when it hadn’t even been updated to its latest version.
Boy, has it become better than I expected!
The mod adds almost 300 new spells to the game, all of which you can learn to turn yourself into one of the mightiest wizards to ever set foot on Cyrodiil. Mages rejoice!
1. Natural Environment
Natural Environments is the best natural mod for Oblivion.
It improves weather, nature, climate, and more by basically adding cyclical changes that feel extremely natural.
It’s a super complex mod that will make your game feel extremely realistic. A must-have in my opinion.
