Oscuro's Overhaul tweaks almost every other aspect of the game as well.Magic is easier to cast, advanced creature AI ensures animals react to you realistically, and boss characters have been scattered throughout the world to provide extra challenge and some desirable loot drops.For PC users there are two distinct versions of this patch: one is specifically for users who have installed Shivering Isles and the other is for users who have not installed Shivering Isles (both versions are available for all localized versions of Oblivion/SI).
Here is just one of the handy load order listings I found.
If you get an error installing a patch at 8%, check for the following which might cause the patch to fail: Note about patch file size of 1.2.0416: The SI patch is smaller because the SI Install process updates Oblivion to 1.2.201, any patches after it would not need to be cumulative from Oblivion 1.0, just SI 1.2.201.
If you have SI installed, the SI 1.2.416 patch contains only the fixes since 1.2.201.
If you cannot install the 1.2.0416 patch after installing Shivering Isles, try uninstalling Oblivion, then follow the same procedure except apply the 1.2.0416 patch before installing Shivering Isles.
(as of v0017) Oblivion 1.0: the original DVD build of Oblivion.
This guide will help you install Oblivion, the official expansions and DLCs, the official and unofficial patches.
A series of smaller mods are also incorporated, adding AI tweaks, balance alterations and hundreds of new weapons and items to the game. Turn your enemies to gold, ride a magic carpet, summon a Balrog and blast your way through 7 new areas.
The mod adds hundreds of new magical abilities to Oblivion, along with new mounts, and even transformation powers.
PC users who installed the second beta patch (Version 1.2.0416) do not actually need to install the final patch, because other than the download file name it is identical to the beta patch.
This patch will prevent any further loss of items or other buggy behavior that may have been caused by the Shivering Isles Reference Bug.
The mod claims to retain the balance of Oblivion, and it does to a certain extent, but once you've gained the most powerful spells on offer, nothing will stand in your way.
