As i find them i will be adding the various oblivion plugins/mods i see that seem interesting. Some basic ones are already coming out. Going to be quite interesting to see what the moding community does with this engine.

Better gold texture add-on.

The file uses 7z compression which if you can't unzip you can use this (http://www.zipgenius.it/eng/index.php)

Original linkage can be found here (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=289942)

This is a in development mod that adds special skills to each class to help define them more.

2. Mod Description
************************************************** ***************

To make each class more desireble, I have decided to give them each
a unique ability/power. I feel that choosing a class should award
the player with something unique to that class instead of the generic
master of all trades, chars we have.

Keep an eye on it here (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=289665)

Some more notable mods to add to the list. All taken from the official forums. Those marked (*) are the ones that I probably would use (if anyone cares...).

*UI Mod (unXBox the interface, display more items per page in the inventory):

UI Mods Version 1.2

*No more crown icons (spoiler free gameplay)

Several people have requested a UI mod to alter the appearance of the talk iconfor quest-related NPCs from the crown back to the standard talk icon.

*No Active Quest Markers, Bye bye spoiling compass and map.

This will remove the Active Quest Marker (the red one) from the compass and the maps. It will still show the User Created Marker if you have it on.

The dungeon and other location icons were removed from the compass also. So the compass just shows direction. These icons will still show up on the maps though.

*Alternate crosshairs (21 different ones):

Ok, I posted earlier about having figured out how to change the crosshair texture. A bit more fussing, and I have a set of 21 different alternate crosshairs available, including the classic 'red dot'. Includes instructions for using it with other mods that modify the same file.

*No More loading area text

This can hardly be called a mod, since it's just changing one game setting, but I got tired of seeing the Loading Area... dialogue popping up every 20 seconds. So I opened up the CS and went into settings.

*Arrow velocity:

<snip>
ncreases speed of arrow according to the level of bow/arrow quality. Iron level will still lazily fly at default level, whereas higher ammo types will scream for their target. This will increase relative power of an archer since it's easier to hit moving targets, and it will make combating well equipped archers more difficult. Next version will include bow quality to be a factor along with the arrows, although speed will remain the same (glassbow + glassarrow = this mod's glassarrow).

Water transparency:

Well One of my biggest complaints about the graphics was the water, it looked like crap & when underwater I couldn't see anything..... So I changed it a little, The water is much more transparent now & you can actually see some underwater.

Merchant buy stolen goods:

I have just finished a mod that allows to the player to sell any stolen goods to most merchants in Cyrodiil. BUT, I have also made crime punishment much tougher now to help balance out gameplay when using this mod. You had better think twice before killing an innocent bystander or stealing something.

Eccentric Spells:

Well basically this mod is just a taste of the things you can do with scripted spells. No readme included, there's not much to say at the moment. To install it put it in your Oblivion/Data folder and select it in the launcher in Data Files. I'd save before you install though, as you should with every mod, because it's really fun to mess around with the spells but at the moment I wouldn't use them on a main character unless you don't mind the fact that they're experimental.

The registration is really quick and doesnt even require you to activate. I just did it in like 1 minute.

There arent any lines for download. You just log in and click the download link and the tiny files are done downloading.

I highly recommend getting an account. Im going to go install all of these plugins now :D
