Tired of the default cursor? Now there is a variety of cursors you can use, including themed cursors.

This mod was packaged to encourage the use of BAIN, so use it!

WizBAIN-Ready Archive. Version 1.1 requires Wrye Bash 292+ for wizard script.
Manual-Unzip, and drop desired cursor folder contents into Oblivion\data folder.

Manual- Drop contents of the 00 Vanilla cursor folder into the Oblivion\data folder.

Any other mod that changes the cursor.dds textures.

You can find me on TESAlliance, TESNexus, or the official forums as 'Metallicow'

Metallicow - Mooo
Bethesda for vanilla Oblivion cursor.
Thanks to the other modders for some of the excellent mods which I made some themed cursors from:
- (liquidgraph) Lost Spires, (Various) The Oubliette, (themythofanst) Vvardenfell Imports, (Exelixis) Mastersword Resource, (Jojjo) Frostmourne Sword, (Tarnsman) Beer!, (Nicoroshi) Wyrmfang dagger, (Trollf) Junkyard

===Metallicow Cursor Mod Compression Standard===
The 100% Standard cursor is 64x64 pixels wide and resides in the folder: textures\menus\misc\cursor.dds.
The 80% one is the same as the Standard cursor and resides in the folder: textures\menus80\misc\cursor.dds.
The 50% one is 32x32 pixels wide and resides in the folder: textures\menus50\misc\cursor.dds.

DDS Convertor 2 Says (100% Vanilla cursor):
The Alpha Channel: Yes
Compression -
Mipmap #: 6

All cursors were saved at ARGB 32bpp | unsigned 7MIP maps with the Nvidia photoshop .dds plugin.
The Vanilla Cursor has been included if you wish to revert back to the original cursor.

Contact me and obtain my permission before re-packaging and/or modifying any part of this mod for release.
The 100% .png cursors can be used as an icon modder's resource if desired. All I ask in return is that
you give me (and others if using themed cursors) appropriate credit if you redistribute any part of this :)
