Oblivion Gates by Mr C Racer

Wiki Link


 

This mod is really very simple. What it does is it adds Oblivion gate-ruins across Skyrim, which is something I've always found it extremely odd Bethesda didn't include themselves. It just adds that little bit of extra immersion. Looking over it in TES5Edit I see no conflicts with my SR install, so extremely doubtful there's any with a normal STEP install either.


Accepted for STEP v2.2.6

--Thanks to Vond and Eliian for testing and providing detail and getting the mod page up.

--We'll recommend the base install of this mod without add-on texture pack at this time

Yeah, I found that strange as well. According to lore:

 

Widespread devastation and casualties resulted across entire provinces. The daedra besieged Skyrim, and laid waste to the Old Holds.

I really like the idea of this out and about in the wilderness. I'm not so sure the people in the actual holds would want to keep it around. Probably try to tear and break it down if they could. Looking like the locations are very near the cities but not actually inside them? That is great if so.

If they were anything like the gates in Oblivion they should be scattered around and then right near a city gate. I imagine the ones near city gates would have been torn down for fear they would reopen. I do like the idea of this mod though.

This seems promising. Has anyone compared the default with the retex in game?

 

008 looks good, but the default textures may be just fine too.

The default textures that are on the nexus page look very out of place. My understanding is that they are rock...? Just looks bad compared to the surroundings.

Why are these still standing after 200 years if they are so dangerous?

 

I could see one or two in some forgotten out of the way place. But who leaves symbols of an alien invasion in their major cities - especially if the might be dangerous in the future.

They're ruined and closed and thus can't work again. Also, this mod doesn't add them to cities - Open Cities Skyrim does that. This mod only adds them in the wilderness. Monuments to remember painful events isn't exactly unheard of though. :)

I think relics are appropriate, but in most cases near cities, these would either be memorialized or they would be altogether removed. They should be ruins in various states of damage in the wilderness though.

 

Mod testers: Is this what is basically reflected by the mod?

OK here are screens of some of the gates. Just used the "cow tamriel xx,xx" to a few of them from the main menu to have a look. There's not that many of them added btw, 13 in vanilla locations and 2 in Dawnguard locations, which is a good number I think since it's means you're likely to stumble upon one (or some) of them, but you won't run into them a lot.

I feel they blend in quite perfectly. These are 6 differens gates obviously. :)

The closest one to a city is the swamp area south of Solitude (can be seen above). The screenshots show it pretty well =) Here are the locations anyway-

 

 

 

the Reach: on the mountain enclosing Ragnvald from the north, close to a chest with two dead bandits

Hjaalmarch: in the swamp in front of Solitude's docks

Hjaalmarch: north of Stonehills mine, along the road

Hjaalmarch: near the Lord Stone

Whiterun Hold: at the feet of the hill in the middle of the hold, west of Fort Greymoor

Falkreath Hold: on Lake Ilinalta, in the small island with a hunter's camp

The Pale: west of Stonehill Bluff

Winterhold: Wayward Pass, on top of the western cliffs

Eastmarch: east of Valtheim Towers, where the river turns to the south

the Rift: east of Shor's Stone, south-east of Shor's Watchtower

the Great Gate: on top of the mountain between Hjaalmarch and the Pale, behind Dagon's shrine

 

Dawnguard:

Forgotten Vale: on top of the mountain pass connecting the Shrine of Resolution with the entrance to the glacial crevice

Dayspring Canyon: on top of the glacier that encloses the laket

Thanks~!!!

 

Question- Would we recommend the ESP with or without Map Markers? I personally prefer it without. Then again I do not use Fast Travel much.

 

Also.......Mod Page =)

      SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.
      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).

      I recently installed the latest Wyre Bash update, 310 Beta 1. I installed it because whenever I would try to save my Bashed Patch esp for Fallout: New Vegas, I would get this particular error message, and the patch itself does not save.
      "< not supported between instances of 'nonetype' and 'int'".
      It would also not register the masters for the patch in the screen section  beside the load order. I have reinstalled Wyre Bash, I have also deleted the previous patch (Which also had the same error), and I don't know what else to do in this case. U have some coding knowledge, but I think it won't help here.
      What should I do? I have attached a screenshot below of the error messsage itself and how no masters show up in the section for them in the GUI.
