Some things can be fixed by mods - but Codex hive mind will still despise Oblivion because story, characters, choices & consequences and dialogues are on PG-13, morning cartoon level - both in original game and in most adventure / quest mods.I would strongly recommend certain Mods that include Maskars Overhaul, Ultimate levelling and Alchemy Advanced. These mods make exploring exciting and really rewarding
But Oblivion modded is a very worthwhile RPG and definitely shouldn't be a target of vitriol
At the same time it completely misses the point why some people still play it in 2022.
Maskar and Oscuro do not try to turn Oblivion into Obsidian / Troika game - but into modern version of Amulets and Armor or Arena - unlearning the lessons of modern, focused game design - and they succeed.
Have you, or anyone else, ever used Martigens Monster Mod in Oblivion? I wanted to use it but it seems very problematic and difficult to get working properly ?
