Oblivion Overhaul Mod
Just this week, we brought you news of a fantastic overhaul mod for Skyrim. It’s a simple collection of multiple mods that sparks new life into the game. Now, we also have a fantastic mod from “SilverScrublord” for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
The modder has overhauled virtually all of the game’s textures using AI Gigapixel. Basically, it’s an AI enhanced upscaling engine, so all the textures are still technically the original design. Only they’re much sharper, more detailed, and much higher resolution.
The original textures clocked in at 512 x 512, and they’ve been quadrupled in size to 2048 x 2048 and 4096 x 4096. The only exception being bumpmap and alpha maps which remained the same for technical reasons.
Is it worth it?
Absolutely! For such a simple mod that overwrites the textures, the visual impact is pretty huge. Plus, since it’s just a texture replacement, the performance hit is basically zero, especially since modern GPUs VRAM is barely taxed by the older game now.
