For this week’s mod update for The Elder Scrolls, I thought I’d point out some of the featured mods currently up on FileFront’s site dedicated to Oblivion, the Oblivion Files.
The current “file of the week” is Trollf’s Hunter’s Performance Review (v1.1). While mentioned as being “a bit pointless in nature,” I couldn’t disagree more. Essentially, it provides a “kill count” for creatures killed by you, your companions, and the creatures killed by other NPCs and creatures while you were in the cell. The only downside to the mod is that at the time, it does not account for creatures that were created by modders. Still, I think the concept’s great.
Moving on, two other new mods from Trollf, Forecaster’s Will and Actors in Madness, are the site’s “Featured Spell” and “Featured Animations” of the week. Forecaster’s Will is a spell that allows you to be the official weatherman of Oblivion, as you’re able to change the weather whenever and wherever you like. Al Roker AM CRY! As for Actors in Madness, this is a follow up mod to Actors in Charge, which allows your character to do animations normally reserved for NPCs. As you might be able to gather from the title of the new mod, Actors in Madness allows you to use newer animations from Shivering Isles. That said, it should be noted that you’ll need to have Shivering Isles to be able to use this mod.
Last but not least, the “Featured Landmass” this week is Kevin’s The Black Marsh: Snake Head Island. This new island, inhabited by the Argonians, is described as a place where “danger is afoot” and “the locals tend to keep to themselves, and they don’t like unwelcome quests.” DUN DUN DUN!!!! If you ask me, sounds like a creepy locale where Scooby Doo and Co. might show up.
As always, if you’ve got some interesting mods you’re working on, feel free to shoot us an email.
