Kvatch Rebuilt: A Hope Renewed lets you rebuild Kvatch through a series of short quests. The city will not be magically rebuilt the moment you load the game, but will instead take several weeks of waiting and helping before it is fully rebuilt. Become the new count(ess) or help the rightful heir find his way back to Kvatch to rule its citizens. Get your own statue in the city, and fight in the arena to become the new champion!

Uncover the evil secrets of old Kvatch, and be the first in centuries to enter the ruins of the Ayleid City underneath. A dungeon filled with both enemies and puzzles, taking you through the entire Ayleid city, and beyond!

With almost full (English) voice over, this final content update breathes new life into the mod!

  • Rebuild Kvatch through a series of short quests.

Nexus Mod Manager
Use the "Download with Manager" button. The installer should take care of things from there. Then simply make sure NMM has the mod activated.

Wrye Bash BAIN
Drop the archive into your Oblivion ModsBash Installers folder, then installas usual. Make sure the mod is active in the Wrye Bash mods tab.

Extract the 'Kvatch Rebuilt.esp' and 'Kvatch Rebuilt.bsa' files from the archive into your Data folder. Activate the mod using whatever management tool suits you.

Due to the way Kvatch Rebuilt handles certain things, it is recommended you follow the uninstall path below, rather than just deactivating the plug-ins (Especially after the quest 'Blood on the Road').

In-game, go to an interior well away from Kvatch and any Kvatch Rebuilt locations. Open up the console (The key to the left of the '1' key) and enter the following:
SetStage KRUninstall 10

A message should appear, asking you to save and exit. Do so, then deactivate 'Kvatch Rebuilt.esp'. Restart Oblivion and load the save you made. You will be prompted about plug-ins having been removed. Ignore this warning. Kvatch Rebuilt has now been successfully uninstalled.

You can now safely delete 'Kvatch Rebuilt.esp' and 'Kvatch Rebuilt.bsa' from your data folder.

  • Other Kvatch Mods: Kvatch Rebuilt is incompatible with any mod that changes Kvatch unless compatibility is specifically noted.
  • Oblivion Character Overhaul: You will have to use a bashed patch (how to), or else the AI (and possibly dialogue) of the vanilla characters will not work properly.
  • OOO/Francesco/FCOM/Warcry/WAC/Creature Diversity: Fully compatible.
  • Weather - All Natural: Kvatch Rebuilt's weather system causes issues with the weather in All Natural. See "Patches" above.

The mod should kick in automatically once you have completed the 'The Battle for Castle Kvatch' quest, regardless if you have already done it long before, or are just starting out. You should notice the camp move into the city and after about a week a messenger should find you.

The WIP Pre-Invasion city remains until you have delivered the amulet to Jauffre.

  • From the distance Kvatch may well still look burnt, even when the rebuild is complete. This can be resolved by updating the LOD through TES4LodGen.
  • The ground is still burnt around the city. This is due to a limitation in the game engine. This can be resolved by using the "No More Burned  Ground" patch.
  • It is advisable to load Kvatch Rebuilt after OOO/FCOM and (Open-) Better Cities.
  • Savegames where an older version of Kvatch Rebuilt (prior to 3.0) is present, will not work with newer versions (3.0+).
  • To disable Quest Markers, type 'Set KRGlobal.QMarkOff' to 1 in the console.
