Description

===========

Ever felt oblivion leveled lists to be well... to bland? Well this mod is an attempt to fix that! Made in collaboration with Vvardenfell Imports, this mod adds 50ish new sets of armor as well 150ish new weapons to the leveled lists. Currently compatible only in vanilla leveling, but do not despair OOO/FCOM users! Plugins to make this mod compatible with your set-up is on the way. I think this mod + OOO would make a great Morrowind type game. and since Morrowind is one of my all time fave games why would i pass this up?

Location

========

Many of these items will appear randomly on enemies, guards and other NPC's but there are a few static npc's carrying a few pieces of the new armor.

NPC's altered:

Vicente Valtierre - Vvardenfell Darkbrotherhood Armour

Gogron gro-Bolmog -Vvardenfell Heavy Darkbrotherhood Armour

Brother Martin - Talon of Akatosh sword

Mannimarco - Necrom Ordinator Armour plus necromancer staff

Lord Drad - Black Baron's Armour

Dion - Skindgrad Honour Armour

Caelia Draconis - Leyawiin Honour Armour

Bittneld the Curse Bringer - Chorrol Honour Armour

Ulrich Leland - Cheydinhal Honour Armour

Burd - Bruma Honour Armour

All the Blades - now carry unique Katanas, well higher ranking blades have akaviri daishos

Details

=======

This mod is described as an overhaul mod. It will take Oblivion's default leveled lists and add many new items into them so they don't feel so bland. Many static NPC's were also changed and have add new armor and/or weapons added to them. All vvardenfell imports armors and weapons have the same stats they do in that mod, only price tags have been changed to fit a game where a bandit could be walking around with them, so they aren't really expensive anymore but fit a vanilla feel. All items have icons and are in all the proper pieces so they fit the game properly. No magic variants yet, sorry will be awhile yet, probably will be released after version one is.

Right now I'm planning on making 3 plugins for 2 kinds of set-ups, the set-ups being vanilla and OOO. The plugins will be:

Armour - Vanilla/OOO, Weapons - Vanilla/OOO and Complete - Vanilla/OOO. New weapons include rapiers, broadswords, katanas, dai katanas, no dachis and scimitars in all the standard "materials" as well as a pile of weapons made in common materials but only for that material. Example you will only find new staves made in dwarven and daedric style. Various artifacts items have also been added such as Martin's new Talon of Akatosh. Countess Narina Carvain's Akavir collection also underwent a huge overhaul. You'll find many unique Akaviri items there you wont find anywhere else.

Still to be done:

Finish off adding armours to NPC's that ive missed or forgotten

Create OOO/FCOM patches

Create Patches for other conflicting mods

User Feedback

Ok, you've confused me.

There's 2 files here. An 815m bsa version, or a 4m standard zip. Do I need both?

The 4m version seems to have very few meshes/textures in it compared to the amount of content you say has been added.

Also, there's 5 esp's. Do I need them all or will the "complete" one be sufficient?

(You should do a RELZ thread here so I don't have to muck up your comments. Sorry)
