I'm stickying this thread. Good idea, chu. :)

I would ask that everybody remember this is a thread for links to useful Oblivion sites. It is not for asking questions. Use regular threads, for that. All questions and answers will be mutilated, eviscerated, defenestrated, and then obliterated by yours truly. ;)
To the Righteous belong the fruits of violent victory. The rest of us will have to settle for warm friends, warm lovers, and a wink from a quietly supportive universe.

I recommend it and they have additional links available.

Fable mentioned this one on another thread and I think it looks good here. This link will take your alchemy worries away.

For people that don't have the 'good' graphics for the game, but know they have a semi decent one, this should help. It loweres the graphics step by step with you to make the game run faster.

Here is a link to IGN, all around information about gameplay. If you're stuck somewhere, this will probably help you out;

The site is not finished, as is understandable. :)

All the merchants in the game, good for when you are looking for highest gold:

Here's an excellent performance tuning guide by Atomizer, the guy who created the mod enabling below spec machines to run Oblivion. Highly recommended read: deals with improving visuals (substantial increases) and performance tweaks, with a mod section coming up soon.

Find it [url="http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/article.asp?SCID=27&CIID=36546&p=1"]here.[/url]

Update: He's now released part 3: [url="http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/article.asp?CIID=36919"]Modblivion[/url]. Worth a read to get started in the very fast moving mod scene :)

A very good site, that has so far enabled a lot of people with old cards to actually run the game (solves issues like everything being white):

http://www.oldblivion.com

And to make it easies the builds are in the downloads section, the .ini files are found [url="http://www.oldblivion.com/sm/index.php?board=4.0"]here[/url].

Considering some people have had difficulties installing the Horse Armor mod, and these appeared on the 32-bit system (not the 64-bit one where so far they cannot work), in form of either giving an error like there was an attempt to install them on the 64-bit system (even though it is a 32 one), or freezing the installation, I'll post a summery of what was found as solutions to these problems:

If indeed you have a 32 bit system try one of these to fix the issues:

1-In Windows XP if you don't want to (or know how to) boot into safe-mode but need to be Administrator to run a program, "Right-Click" on the .exe "Oblivion_Horse_Armor_Pack.exe" then select "Run as..."
2-Instead of selecting "Current user (COMPUTERNAME\UserName) choose "The following user:" and select "Administrator" from the drop-down list of users.
3-You will need to know the Administrator's password for the computer, however most computers purchased from a store will have a blank password (unless you changed it yourself)

OR:

1-Reboot in safe mode with networking.
2-Log in administrator account.
3-Install the package.

OR:

1-Hit Start, Run, type msconfig.
2-Select Boot.INI tab and select safeboot and check networking. Hit ok and reboot.
3-Login under Administrator account and hit ok. Then run the installer, finish install and go back into msconfig and unselect safeboot.
4-Reboot

Good link for mods

I've seen this site quoted frequently and I think it belongs here.

I don't know about these so called easter eggs but for quest help and general tips I would go to Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion(it's still a work in progress).

I just came across [url="http://cs.elderscrolls.com/constwiki/index.php/Oblivion_Mods_FAQ#Where_can_I_find_good_mods.3F"]this site[/url]..
It provides links to numerous mod lists as well as providing a lot of really useful information, such as installing mods or using OMOD.

A nice, comprehensive list of [url="http://knol.google.com/k/devnull-devakm/toql-the-oblivion-quest-list/2xu0v7u1nzut0/2#"]Quest Mod[/url] recommendations.

Body Mod Related

I just came across an up-to-date, comprehensive list for male armours (designed for Robert's Male Body Replacer). Given that male clothing and armour mods are far more scarce than the female equivalent, I decided to post it here:
[url="http://public.sheet.zoho.com/public/katiecubed/robert-s-male-body-mod-list"]Robert's Male Body List[/url]


And here is a list of mods that support [url="http://public.sheet.zoho.com/public/katiecubed/robert-s-female-body-mod-list?mode=print"]Robert's Female Body.[/url] [SIZE="1"](while this is probably the nicest and most realistically proportioned female body mod, it doesn't enjoy the same support as others, so I thought this page was worth listing)[/size]
Also worth listing: Roberts Female for Mods at The Elder Scrolls Nexus - Oblivion mods and community




Fantasy Figures, much like Robert's Female Body is a beautifully done female body mod with fairly realistic proportions. It too lacks support, unfortunately. After much scouring I have found the following links:

ES Search | Name: UFF

Zoho Sheet

Baratheon79's Elder Scrolls Mods - UFF Conversions

All That FF Goodness You've Been Craving #4 - Bethesda Game Studios Forums

TeamFF Unreleased Betas at The Elder Scrolls Nexus - Oblivion mods and community

I know someone already listed a single page from this site, and this thread is rather old; but as an avid Oblivion player I feel the need to point out that the [url="http://uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:Oblivion"]Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages[/url] (that link is specifically for Oblivion) contains everything you could possibly need to know about Oblivion. Quests, NPCs, Items, Easter Eggs, Spells, Character Creation, Skill Boosts, Modding, things for specifically console or specifically PC, Creatures, Maps, Trainers, etc etc. Quite literally, everything.
(It also contains all information for all previous TES games as well.)
