Thanks, MajorD. Bought Fallout last year but still have yet to play it. Played Oblivion a couple of years ago with all the mods and had a great time so will definitely check it out.

NP! Hopefully you'll like it, especially with some of the top Mods.

Oblivion is the next one I want to jump back into, but I'll probably start over, as it has been too long since I orginally played it; I was only a few hours into it anyway. What would be you top 5 you would recommend for Oblivion?

First I installed the unoffical Oblivion patch. I considered installing either Oscuro's Overhaul or Francesco's Leveled Creatures, but ultimately decided to go with the experience intended by the devs, gameplay wise. The plan was to do a second play through with one or both of those, but then I never got around to it. Now I kind of wish I'd installed them to start with.

To make it look nicer, I installed Qarl's texture pack, Unique Landscapes, and Natural Environments. I also installed the Darnified UI to make the UI work better on a big PC monitor. And I installed the Oblivion mod manager to control it all. I also added Midas' Magic Spells which adds a bunch of new magic.

I didn't run into any conflicts with this somewhat modest install, with the exception of one new dungeon I couldn't get through.

Here's a comprehensive forum post on Steam talking about different mods and how to best install them to avoid conflicts.

EDIT: Here's an even MORE comprehensive mod guide over at Wow. Makes me want to install even more stuff and run through it again. As if I have time for that...
