Requirements:

Oblivion 1.2.0416

=================
Description:
=================



Due to the BSA format and it's overlap with other mods (most notably COBL and Mart's Monster Mod) it's essential that all previous versions and resource files of OOO are completely removed prior to the install of version 1.35
Failure to do so will result in many missing files and erroneous installation.


=================
Details:
=================



Listed are the major alterations and additions that have been made since version 1.34 beta5.
We've included a couple of new surprises. Don't want to spoil anything, but you'll find them during the course of your adventures.

General changes and additions include:

•A completely new quest by Shadowborn. Without giving away too much, the quest is designed for mid-level characters. It involves the Knights of the Dragonborn and the various Goblin Tribes.
•A large selection of unique rewards for killing Gargoyles. Finally some well-deserved rewards can be gained if you are brave enough to defeat these powerful monsters. Huge thanks to bg2408 for this.
•Additional in-game hints, clues, and lore related to the some of the unique static items you can find. Thanks to Dazu in relation to SunChild.
•Massive corrections to the spelling and grammar in the books, notes, and other texts added by OOO. Huge thanks to Dazu for this.
•Support for Knights of the Nine. Adapted from FCOM_Knights, this optional plugin rebalances KotN with stronger enemies, OMOBS weapon stats, and resolves conflicts with the quest rewards.
•PyFFI mesh optimizations and BSA resources! Resources optimized and moved into a BSA file! This involves a huge amount of work and testing to get the BSA working properly, including fixes for texture paths, missing mipmaps, and various mesh properties. See separate change list below for details.
•Light of Dawn sword scripts now include better detection of player vampire status.
•Removed debug comments from LapDrunkScript.
•Additional improvements for Carla Du Vrey and Hindaril.
•Additional script fixes for AMIW.
•OMOBS fixes and tweaks by BFG99.

Changes related to the BSA conversion include:

• New BSA format which includes all Textures, Meshes and Sounds.
•Changed mesh and texture paths to avoid overlaps with Martigen's Monster Mod for some creatures used in both mods.
•Added mipmaps to all "worn" armor textures.
•Fixed bad texture path in the "unfinished steel" cuirass meshes.
•Renamed the "unfinished steel" armor meshes to "cuirass.nif".
•Includes PyFFI mesh optimizations by HawkerT. Optimizations include: architecture, clutter, dungeons, harvest, RD, Rocks, va, Weapons.
•Added mipmaps and removed unused alpha channels from defensive staffs; removed transparency settings from NIF properties on the staffs that don't use transparency.
•New ESM/ESP is included due to changes in "unfinished steel" armor mesh paths. Plus a cleanup of many armour models.
-Optional No deadric items esp. Self explanatory.
-A few little surprises in the form of new enemies.
-Minor fixes and alterations, many of which details I've forgotten

Thanks!

=================
Installation:
=================


===============

Manual Install
===============

1. Extract this archive to any folder and then copy the contents to Oblivion's Data folder.
2. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, and enable the Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul.esp file(s).

===============
OBMM Install
===============

Installing the Mod

1. Extract the archive to any other folder.
2. Copy the extracted archive to [Install Path]\Oblivion\OBMM\Mods\
3. Start Oblivion Mod Manager
4. Click the Create button
5. Click the Add Archive button, navigate to the archive and select it, then click the Yes button.
6. Click the Create OMOD button, wait until it finishes, then click the Ok button

Activating the Mod

1. Start Oblivion Mod Manager
2. Double-click the name of the mod in the right-hand side of the OBMM screen, once installed the mod icon will turn blue

===============
BAIN Install
===============

1. Copy the entire archive into your Oblivion Mods\Bash Installers folder.
2. In Wrye Bash Installers tab, highlight the new archive.
3. Check any sub-folders, ESP/ESM's as required.
4. Right click the archive name and Install.
5. In Wrye Bash Mods tab, check the ESP/ESM's and rebuild Bashed patch. (Also recommended to run BOSS first).

Harvest Flora version 3.01 is also included in the archive. BOSS is recommended at all times to sort your load order, but ensure the file loads after the OOO esp to avoid the known crash issue with the harrada plant.
Living Economy - Consider using Enhanced Economy instead as Living Economy has some issues, for example the 65 K bug which means that sometimes when a merchant has quite little money left when you sell something, the merchant suddenly receives around 65000 gold to barter for, instead of 0. Enhanced Economy is issue free, has many more features, is compatible with mod added items and completely customizable. Requires OBSE.
Level Rates Modified - Skill level rates are c. 3x slower in OOO than in the original game on default. but users might want to consider using Fundament instead http://oblivion.nexu....com/mods/41005

Updating your save to 1.35
It's advised to wait out your game respawn (default 3 game days) away from all creatures and npc's. One way is to use the console "coc testinghall" then return using "coc Weye"
