The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has fostered an impressive modding community, and now, 13 years after its inception, the game has received one of its largest overhauls to date.
Modder SilverScrublord has created a mod that upscales textures via an AI solution while preserving the game’s original sense of design and personality. Running in at 4.5GB in size, the mod is no small feat.
By utilising the Gigapixel AI program, the modder was able to upscale almost every texture in the game to four times its original quality. Overall, SilverScrublord’s goal was to bring Oblivion up to modern standards without falling into the common pitfalls of other mods, which often “change Oblivion‘s atmosphere in strange ways.”
The mod is one that only Oblivion enthusiasts would likely appreciate, but for a title to act as a conduit for creativity for so long is nice to see. For those who want to dip back into the world of Cyrodiil, check out SilverScrublord’s mod on Nexusmods.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was recently named as one of OnlySP’s top 50 games. Check out the piece if you want to re-visit the game’s snowy footpaths.
