Have Dragon Will Travel

Gotta love the modding community.

There are like a billion mods for Oblivion. However, this one in particular I thought deserved attention. Actually, Bethesda thought it deserved attention as well. So impressed was Bethesda with this mod that they interviewed the author and posted those results via bethblog. Here is an excerpt of said interview:

Bethesda: “Let’s just cut to the chase – how did you make the Akatosh Mount mod?”

Saiden: “I always knew from the moment it was possible to export creatures running off custom skeletal rigs that I wanted to make a mountable flying dragon. As luck would have it, Oblivion already had the dragon model and I thought this would be simple considering I had already finished three other custom creatures sporting home made rigs and animations. The model and texture was done — all I would have to do is create a rig, save the skin, and animate everything up and *poof* I would be done.”

Of course, astute Penny Arcade readers already know the value of a quality Oblivion mount. So if you can appreciate a good (yet free) Oblivion mod or just simply have a dragon fetish, definitely check this mod out.

It has a text file with instruction inside the ZIP archive.

Basically, installation involves unziping the archive contents to the appropriate subdirectories in your Oblivion folder.

There are some 3rd party Oblivion mod managers out there that might make things a bit easier. I had no problem going about it the manual method.
