About this mod

Adds moths to the interiors of the Imperial Library and the temple grounds of the Cult of the Ancestor Moth.

Permissions and credits
Welcome to the twenty second installment of my Oblivion Immersion Series.  Given the great religious significance attributed to the ancestor moth and its related cult (you know the one, the one entrusted with the preservation and reading of the Elder Scrolls, those mystical quasi-divine artifacts that the series is named after), you'd think that the ritual presence of the moths themselves would be better played.  Yeah, the moths have a minor presence in the catacombs in the vanilla game, but I hardly noticed it when I played through that quest.  So this mod remedies that problem just a bit by adding more moths to the spaces dedicated to the Cult of the Ancestor Moth, including the Temple, the catacombs, and the Imperial Library.  The effect is entirely cosmetic, it has no impact on the quests themselves.  Hey, I never promised that all of my immersion mods would have practical uses. 

French translation available here:



Oblivion Version 1.2.0416

Installation Instructions

Copy contents into your Oblivion data folder

Uninstallation Instructions

Delete the added esp, meshes, and textures


Will be incompatible with any mod that edits the Imperial Library or any sites affiliated with the Cult of the Ancestor Moth.

Known Issues

Sometimes the moths will fly through objects.  This is a consequence of how the insect meshes behave in game, so there is nothing I can do about this.


Feel free to come to me with questions or issues and I will help as best as I can.  That said, please bear in mind that I am a novice modder and may not be able to offer much in the way of assistance.
