Zelieo's Mod Of The Week

Hey Guys, and welcome to my new section of the Forums. Here I will be showcasing the latest and greatest of the modding community.

This Week's Mod Is:
The Dark Forest by addiktive.

I am a bug fan of the whole UniqueLandscapes series, which is dedicated to making the areas of Oblivion look better! Just for a bit of a sneak peak...

http://www.tessource.net/files/images/U ... rest-1.jpg

The environments in this mod are astounding, and it's storyline blows me away.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Features:

-Forsaken Village:

This village looks quite cool. The buildings have been destroyed, choking vines now grow in and around the structures, and to top it all off, you get your own bed and chest in the village! I am unsure as to whether or not you can leave items in the chest, however.

-Blackened/Darkened Environment
-Retextured and Redone Enemies:

This specifically was quite the interesting feature. In the Dark Forest there are creaures called 'Sprites' which are ethereal, so you cannot kill them. They also run on a schedule. During the day they will run amuck the forest casting random buff & mischief spells on you, laughing all the while. During the night, however, they get evil. They change colors from Blue to Red and their behavior changes. They begin casting Drain Health, Drain Fatigue, and general damaging spells on you, and you can do nothing to them!

On top of that, there is also the Forest Spirit, which is basically the same as a sprite, except uses the spriggan ghost model, and will dissapear when you come close. I had some fun finding the Forest Sprit, watching it dissapear, then finding it again!


-Poisonous Water/Choking Vines:

Purple water flows through the forest, and when you step through it you will take damage. Also, there is a retextured and recolored Harrada plant that grows in the forest that will attack careless adventurers.


Pros:

-Unique Environments
-Cool Storyline
-Interesting Village

Cons:

-Like all of the Unique Landscapes mods, it is uncompatible with most village and terrain mods.

-Running with Natural Environments will create environments much too dark to see in without a 120 foot light spell.



Check back every week!

Current Savegame is fine. Be aware that any mods that add villages in the area of this mod (Around Harcane Grove) will end up having trees sticking out of them, or ontop of rivers.

Well seeing as zelieo has better things to do i take it that he is no longer going to do this... does anyone actually want this to carry on? If so post saying so. i will happily post a good mod up here once a week. But if no1 uses this then there is no point in me doing so...

WOa just found this one and it looks great. Havent tried it out but the description makes it sound incredible. Basic summery for those who simply cant be arsed to read the description on the link.

Makes shopkeepers have a limited gold that will change with each transaction meaning you can no longer sell all your gear to one person.

Merchants gold varies on your level and their mercentile skill

Changes prices of items to add a better "shopping" system, you can now go around to find the best price for an item.

Other features included...
