Diverse Voices

Pitch-shifting Nirn & Oblivion, one Race at a time.

Overview
  • Goal: unique voices for all races!
  • Like many replacer mods, DV is only modified from Bethesda's files. If that isn't good enough for you, then we're on the same page. If it is, then enjoy.
  • Dark Elf males will have lower, slightly more gravelly voices than other Elven males.
  • High Elf & Wood Elf females will sound less like Dunmer females.
  • Orcs will have lower, more growly voices than Nords.
Caveat: This mod is provided as-is. It works for me, and that's all I had time for. I would love to be one of those guys who has the time to thoroughly support his releases, but I don't. If you have a problem, I'm sorry, but you're probably on your own. Bug reports are appreciated, but I can make no guarantee to fix them.

Installation
  • Download both "PART 1" and "PART 2". This is about 600MB.
  • For basic "vanilla" Oblivion, extract the contents of the "MAIN" archive(s) into your "Oblivion\Data" folder, making sure to activate "Diverse Voices.esp" in your plugin manager.
  • For Shivering Isles support, download the applicable "Support Pack". Inside, you should find the "SI Support" folder. Extract the contents of the "SI Support" folder into your "Oblivion\Data" folder, making sure to replace the vanilla "Diverse Voices.esp" with the new ESP from the Support Pack. DO NOT use both ESPs.
  • For Persuasion Overhaul support, download the applicable "Support Pack". Inside, you should find the "PO Support" folder. Extract the contents of the "PO Support" folder into your "Oblivion\Data" folder.
  • For other Official DLC support, download the applicable "Support Pack". Extract the contents of the Archive into your "Oblivion" folder.
  • For Thieves' Arsenal support, download the applicable "Support Pack". Extract the contents of the Archive into your "Oblivion" folder.
KNOWN ISSUES:
  1. The Support Pack for "Persuasion Overhaul" was created prior to obtaining permission, so is not 100% kosher. I've e-mailed the author of PO to obtain his blessing (never replied), but if he requests that I take down the link, I will probably do so.
  2. As of this edit, the unsplit main file is @ FileFront; TESNexus has a split version, due to size limits there. If you experience problems with the Split archives, see this post.
  3. In order to correctly diversify the voices, a mod must make changes to the Race entries in the CS. The ESP included is therefore not compatible with other mods that change the Race entries for Dark Elf, High Elf, Wood Elf, or Orc. However, Wrye Bash users can take advantage of that utility's great "Bashed Patch" tools to overcome this. Alternatively, you can open up your current Race mod and directly edit it yourself. IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS, first change your eyes+hair back to default & make a clean save without your Race mod. If you fail to take these precautions, you may really regret it. The process is well-summarized here (thanks Satu), so I'll save my space by just linking it.


A big thank-you to "Sandman53" from the Official ES Forums for doing the non-SI DLC & Thieves Arsenal Support Packs!
