OBMS (I believe that's the one.) has 4 different magic mods you need before you can install it, Midas magic being one. I had it installed but haven't played through oblivion as a mage. Honestly most of the time magic is so horribly underpowered that I would never want to use it, ever. I reloaded my computer since then and don't have oblivion installed now, but when I do reinstall it sometime, i'd like to play through it as a mage. I played through vanilla as a warrior, i'm sure that'd be much different now too.
The alternative Oblivion Magic System? Yeah, I tried that. It definitely is a pretty good mod, at least I remember liking it. After my finals this week and when I get home, I'll be playing Oblivion. Lots. And I'm going to try that again.
But I have a question, what's the worst mod you ever installed?
Mine is realistic fatigue, sounded fine in the description, you need to manage your fatigue, as it goes down you tire, movements slow, and if it's low enough you can trip, add a little more realism to the game. Except the fatique bar never went down, so i'd just randomly trip if I was trying not to die, and wouldn't have any warning I would.
I remember seeing realistic fatigue and laughing on how absolutely tedious it would be.
Mine is cinematic camera mod, which basically took away first person view entirely and put in a pretty badass 3rd person view, but the reason why it wasn't an entirely basass mod is because it didn't replace the other third person view mod, and this could cause glitching if you're like me and switch from first person view to third often. I guess the camera was hard coded into the vanilla game and first person view wasn't, thus they could replace first person view. Its too bad, I would've used this mod otherwise.
and I do have a second worse one. The first time I went on the Nexus, in the showcased mods there was this vampireism mod, which turns out was a twilight based vampirism mod. I installed it, became a vampire, etc. There's only one thing it changed, any time the sun is out you got a status called "bright sun" which would put a 50000 gold bounty on your head so every guard in the entire city would want to kill you. And then when I tried to disable it, I couldn't or I would lose my save game. So I had to deal with it long enough to do the quest to cure my vampireism, only to find out that it didn't allow the cure to work. And then I used the developer console to get rid of it. NEVER FKING AGAIN.
That sucks, neevr installed it myself. I did install a vampirism mod, though, and hopefully it isn't the same one you speak of. That would be horrible.
Also because FEZ doesn't allow you to say the word [bleep], ingame we use [bleep], i've noticed many places I started using [bleep] instead, lol.
