If you looked around the

If you looked around the forums abit you will find they did start Skyblivion, it is just they share most of the developers as with Skywind. And most people are working on Skywind since it is a bigger project.

 

Note: I do not work for either, I have just been on the site for a long time.

I've been following skywind

I've been following skywind since it began. I may have not been a member until yesterday but I know a thing or two. Expect to wait at least as long as skywind to expect a release. Almost no real scripting, texturing or audio work has gone into skyblivion yet.

Being that both are being

Being that both are being done completely on a volunteer basis, there's no way to get an accurate estimate of when they might be done.
However I think once Skywind is complete, or at least has a public build released, Skyblivion will be finished in a fraction of the time, as they'll be able to use Skywind's resources, and many of the veterans from Skywind will likely be working on Skyblivion.

Current estimates I think are either late this year, or sometime in 2016.  Don't hold your breath though.

Not accurate. Probably the only person who is working on Skywind who will help with Skyblivion is Zilav.

In general, almost none of the assets made for Skywind works for Oblivion.

They are completely different projects in the fact that Skywind is getting a complete overhaul of assets and world building, where as Skyblivion is a direct important.

Are the copyright problems

Are the copyright problems with assets not present for Skyblivion?  Also I was made to understand the creatures they had in common would be brought over from Skywind.

They use an installer to take

They use an installer to take the resources from your legal copy of Oblivion. Similar to Morroblivion, were you need Morrowind for it to work. It is a way around the legal issues.

I don't think it's that simple, remember that Morroblivion isn't allowed on the Bethesda forums, or the Nexus due to weird IP stuff with the assets.  That's one the biggest reasons Skywind is using entirely new assets, aside from just the dated graphics of Morrowind.

I believe Oblivion had less

I believe Oblivion had less third party assets, however third party programs were used to implement things such as tree and rock placement, as long as the models themselves aren't third party then asset overhauls won't be a requirement and could speed up release. However I do not know. Haven't looked at Skyblivion yet. In the meantime, the original is pretty good with some mods to update character models.

I say a project this good is

I say a project this good is worth the wait. I just downloaded the latest Morroblivion and have been playing it for about 3 hours. Job well done. I can see differences in the new version. So get yourself a copy of this and enjoy playing it. Skywind and Skyblivion will be done in their own time. It took Bethesda years to create the original games. As soon as they were done or probably before with Morrowind they were working on Oblivion. Same with Skyrim. The folks here at the TES Renewal Project are working very hard everyday on these and they are all volunteers. Cut them some slack, kick back and enjoy what they do have available at this point. Skywind and Skyblivion will be done when they are done.

Release date is unknown, Me

Release date is unknown, Me and Zilav are working on stuff as much as much time we can spare. Guys are also doing facegen, but I bet this will be done faster than our part of the project.

Well on the facebook page you

Well on the facebook page you can see they got a lot done as for land and ruins and stuff for the shivering isles (not sure if they will be doing anything for knights of the 9 and the other small dlc like Fighter's Stronghold Expansion, Spell Tome Treasures and Vile Lair).But I'm not modder but I'm sure the quests will take a lot of time to do.But this will all be worth the wait :).I just wish i could use some of the Oblivion mods in skybivion once it's done.I know i cant but still wish i could
