⠀ This collection provides a "vanilla plus" foundation for gamers to re-experience the joy of Oblivion once again. The mods were selected from PushTheWinButton's outstanding work in his Through The Valleys mod guide. This collection is intended to preserve the original aesthetic and play of Bethesda's award-winning game. You will be able to download this collection and immediately begin playing. Or, alternatively, you can use it as a foundation for further modding.

The collection upgrades visuals, textures, and models while maintaining modest PC requirements that will make it playable on a wide range of systems.

  • Requires the latest version of Oblivion Game of the Year edition.
  • I strongly recommend installing the game on a solid state drive (SDD) to significantly improve performance and reduce stuttering.
  • Run the game once to establish your INI files. Select Options, then choose the "Ultra High" preset. Finally, adjust the Resolution for your monitor.

  1. Go to the Profiles section in Vortex and select "Add Oblivion Profile," Add & save a name, then select Enable. This step is crucial to avoid problems with other collections or mods you've added.

  2. Select "Plugins" within Vortex and ensure all 10 DLC are enabled.

  3. Go to the Next site and click the Add to Vortex button. When prompted, select the new profile you created in Step 1. Let the installation complete.

  4. Run the 4GB RAM Patcher Tool in your dashboard. Select the "Oblivion.exe" file from the displayed window, then Open. Click Ok again to close the window it opens.

  5. Run the game through your Oblivion Script Extender icon in the dashboard.


For users with video cards & monitors that would run significantly over 60 FPS you must use your video card control panel to set a Maximum Frame Rate. Otherwise, you will experience issues where the game runs at very high speeds.

For NVIDIA, go to the Control Panel, select Manage 3D Settings, Program Settings, choose Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Oblivion.exe), and Add Selected Program. Then go to Max Frame Rate, change to On and set for 60, then click Apply. You may wish to experiment with values up to 100 FPS.


Game crashes at the Bethesda Logo - Oblivion may have incorrectly setup your oblivion.ini file. Go to \documents\my games\oblivion and delete the oblivion.ini file. Run the game normally, set your graphics per the Prerequisites section, and confirm you can reach the main menu. If successful, exit and go to the Mods section of Vortex. Double click the "Oblivion Rebirth" mod to open the settings panel and scroll down to the Ini Tweaks section. Unselect then Select each INI setting. Click Deploy when finished.

Couldn't Open Executable! error - When you run the 4Gb Patcher you receive an error. Vortex may have incorrectly installed the collection. Go to your Mods section and find the Oblivion Rebirth mod. Right-click and select Reinstall. Re-run the patcher tool.
