Permissions and credits
Welcome to the Archived version of AIP!

Go to Ayleid Ruins Overhaul, that mod is an updated and more appropriate update to ayleid ruins.

Oblivion has an amazing and luscious open world to explore, however the Ayleid Culture in Cyrodiil is underdeveloped in my opinion.
With some exploration into the ruins, and/or some research into Cyrodiil’s past you may be enthralled by the Ayleid culture. I had implemented into the game the ability to obtain some Ayleid Artifacts and powerful potions. Now some others have created Ayleid resources, but I am the first to attempt this style of overhaul to Cyrodiil’s Ayleid ruins. Some ruins had been greatly expanded to the point that they are compareable to morrowinds huge dungeons...some have been given puzzles to solve...

Installation & Uninstalling:
First and foremost get oblivion’s two main expansions Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine!
After the DLCs you must install the Better Dungeons mod.  
Then install the main file (of my mod that is 1.2 the esp is not needed)

Now install the newest update (at this point v 1.3)

Simply remove the .esp from your Oblivion Data folder but do not touch the other files I provided as they are used by a large number of mods.

I have done the testing I possibly can, (I also got the YouTube Channel Mythic Dwellers to do some testing and the artwork for the nexus) and everything is seemingly stable, however I am a fairly new mod developer and somethings will always slip through the cracks, so please report any problems you come across so i can fix them.

Please also comment your opinions on the balancing of the weapons and items, as somethings may need changing to better fit into the oblivion combat system.

I will continue to upload updates and new screenshots as i develop the mod. For now, please help me create the overhaul the Ayleids need!

Compatibility: Mostly compatible whit other mods,maybe placement incompatibilities, apart from changing the texutres of meteoric weapons
