Updating oblivion lod files
Texture mods are finicky and might not work because of an improperly made, or nonexistent, Archive file.
Generally, this file comes with the mod, but if you already have the file in your Oblivion/Data/ game folder, you'll need to append new information to it.
However, after a few days something about the game's textures irked us.
The close up lush environments looked fantastic, but degraded down to a murky pile of green mush from afar.
We decided to include a few select tweaks; you can find a very comprehensive list of commands and settings at Tweak Guides.
Crack open that initialization file (found in your My Documents/My Games/Oblivion directory) and make a few edits based on the following settings.
Within days, if not hours, of release the modding community, alight with activity, released scores of add-ons.
Data files generally have an file extension; some come with associated texture files that you have to load into the Oblivion data directory.
Keep in mind that not all modifications play nicely with each other--some mods might replace already-modded files and inadvertently delete a previously installed mod.
Also, mod authors have limited resources for testing; don't be surprised if you come across the occasional graphical anomalies and even some instability.
Due to the variety of modification types, there isn't one specific installation method.
