1. OBLIVIFALL INTRODUCTION
Oblivifall "Revenge of the Classic" is a project that aims to bring many features from The Elder Scrolls 2 : Daggerfall to Oblivion. For many old fans of Elder Scrolls, Daggerfall is still the best cRPG Bethesda has ever designed or even the best cRPG ever made. I will be releasing many separate mods that will add new features and options to Oblivion. To see what modules have been released or are in the works, refer to section 11.
Now let's see what this mod is about, shall we?
2. NEW CLASSES
New Classes changes the text that describes each of Oblivion's classes to match the ones found in the Daggerfall and Morrowind manual. I found Oblivion's descriptions to be bland and thought they lacked depth that could help roleplay the chosen class.
You will find Daggerfall's and Morrowind's descriptions to bring more detail about the role and occupations of the class you choose.
In addition to the classes' description, it also changes the races and skills descriptions. Again, the text is more about the background of your chosen race and how the skill is applied in situations than what in-game benefits it brings.
Classes Descriptions also adds two new classes that were found in Daggerfall: The Burglar and the Ranger.
From the game manual:
A good burglar can strip a palace to its foundations without waking a soul. Let the vulgar delinquents mug and kill for their gold - the burglar is agile, silent and curious as a cat. Sometimes it is the challenge of a supposedly insurmountable lock or a tireless guard that sets their blood to burn. More often, it is simple greed.
Even as civilization slowly wins its battle with the wilderness, the woodland warriors of Tamriel, the rangers, are unchallenged in their environment. Rangers are hardly savages. They are supremely adaptive fighting men and women, sometimes guardians of the forest, sometimes protectors of travelers.
For the rest of the new descriptions, refer to the other document that comes with the mod in the Docs folder.
You need the latest version of Oblivion.
4. INSTALLING/UNINSTALLING THE PLUG-IN
Simply extract the Data folder to your Oblivion/Data folder.
To uninstall, remove the "Oblivifall - New Classes.esp" and "Oblivifall â€“ New Classes Regular Fonts.esp" files.
5. PLAYING THE PLUG-IN
If you have a mod that installs smaller fonts, like DarN UI, activate "Oblivifall â€“ New Classes.esp".
If you donâ€™t, activate "Oblivifall â€“ New Classes Regular Fonts.esp". The regular fonts version does not include the skill descriptions and the racial descriptions are only from Daggerfall, not a mix of Daggerfall and Morrowind.
6. SAVE GAMES
You do not need to start a new game to see the changes.
7. CONFLICTS/KNOWN ERRORS
- No conflicts.
