File Description

Oblivion has many elements for making a great RPG, like classes, skills, attributes, etc. However, character levelling has a few issues this mod tries to improve on. These are:

  • Efficient levelling encourages unnatural game play;
  • The ability to train all skills and attributes to 100 lowers the importance of classes;
  • Raising luck is boring;
  • Levelling calculations for the player character are not consistent with those of NPCs.

This mod changes how the player character levels, removing the need for efficient levelling and making character development more diverse. Either pick an experience based leveling system (like Oblivion XP), or a skill usage levelling system (like Realistic Levelling). The experience based levelling system allows the player character to level by gaining experience, which is done by performing actions like killing enemies, completing quests and discovering new locations. The skill usage levelling system allows the player character to level by using skills, much like vanilla, but includes an optional skill cap to encourage character diversity.

The character's attributes and derived attributes are automatically calculated based on his/her skills. As luck has no associated skills, it's calculated based on the character's fame, infamy and bounty. Characters with high infamy benefit from having a high bounty, while characters with high fame suffer a large penalty from having any bounty.

Additionally, powerscrolls have been added to increase attribute caps and profession books to change the player character's class. Please read the included pdf readme file for further details.

Compatibility and requirements

This mod requires OBSE (version 21 or higher) and MenuQue to function properly. MenuQue is not required for the skill usage leveling system, but without it certain features will be disabled. Currently DarNified UI, DarkUI'd DarN and NorthernUI are automatically supported. Any other UIs will use the new vanilla UI menus.

Do not use this mod with other character leveling and/or uncapper mods. It can however be used with existing savegames. Also, load order is not important.
