Did anyone buy Shivering Isles? Is it neat and interesting? Some cool missions(like the 'Enter the Painting'), new terrain, cool new spells or weapons? Looking for feedback on if its worth buying or not?

The Shivering Isles is great but no cool missions i can think of. new monsters , weapons , armors (2 types) & new terrain.

Do you know if Shivering Isles can be installed anytime or will it mess up or alter my current Oblivion game?

You can install SI anytime

To me, SI was WAY more fun than the main mission in Oblivion
SI made Oblivion to me

To me Oblivion was VERY dry w/o plenty of mods.
But SI was great with no mods.

Ahh Oblivion. I wish this game's main quest was longer, as I thought it was great. The longest I have ever spent on a single player game ever, by far.
