Install maskars

Play the thieves guild and dark brotherhood questlines which are neat, then realize dishonored exists and uninstall oblivion

I always start oblivion with the best of intentions, play for a few hours then stop.

You can make all of the tweaks in the world to that game but Cyrodil is still going to be a boring place filled with boring people.

I've been watching DansGaming play through oblivion and he's using maskars.

It looked interesting enough until he ran into a situation where he legit could not damage vampire enemies fast enough to outrun their constant in-darkness health regen.

Then destroyed by nonstop Morag Tong attacks.

ASK ME ABOUT BEING UNABLE TO GO INTO SHOPS BECAUSE I FLY INTO FITS OF RAGE WHEN I SEE A PACKET OF FRUIT PASTILLES AND REMEMBER THAT ROWNTREES NEVER FINISHED THEIR SEARCH FOR THE ROWNTREE ADVERTISEMENT CAMPAIGN/HIGH FANTASY SERIES

you can tweak their regen or turn it off entirely. same with the morag tong attacks

every feature is implemented separately

I like Oblivion more than Morrowind still but that's probably because I played it first and also because becoming Hortator of every house is fairly boring.

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque, or credit card?

I often hear that and I'm always kind of confused by it because I like the Hortator quests.

What's wrong with me/you/them?

If I only had to become Hortator of one house or something for the quest progression it'd be fine, it just sort of slows the plot stuff completely to a halt for me. Most of it was just using my super jump spells to jump back and forth places for a few hours.

I actually agree with what they're saying there. I've found the new CK to be exceptionally crash-prone even compared to the old CK. Let them finish it up and then convert it.

You can also just kill Vivec, take the Wraithguard off his corpse and show it to the Yagrum Bagarn. If you also grab the documents proving what’s going on, he’ll help you attune to it so that you can grab Sunder and Keening and banish the heart.

Any reason why Maskar's overhaul messes up Oblivion XP? If I turn the mod off, Oblivion XP works again.

messes up how? maskar's does add its content into the oblivion xp framework - they interact much more than maskar's does with almost any other mod, from what i understand

maskar is extremely responsive though, if you post a detailed description of the issue on the MOO nexus page he will probably have it figured out pretty quickly

It took me a minute to realize I somehow disabled both Oblivion XP and Maskar. Everything is working fine since I fixed that.

How bad is the level scaling in Maskar's overhaul? I looked through the ini files, but I'm not sure what I should change to disable it without blowing up the mod. I changed the bosses so they don't scale as high, but that's about it.

you want the bosses to scale very high imo, they don't spawn 50 levels above you or anything but when you're high level the max scaling on bosses needs to be high so that you still run into challenging enemies while sweeping grunts aside easily. which is basically the whole purpose of the level scaling; it's pretty good with the OOO-intended settings in my experience.
