[RELz] Skyblivion Reborn Installation Instructions

Skyblivion v0.1 Released!

Video 1       Video 2       Video 3       Video 4

Reconversion project of Oblivion to Skyrim.

Installation instructions and links are not available, please wait for version 0.2

Type in game's console "cow tes4tamriel 5 10" to travel to Waterfront in Imperial City. "tmm 1" will show all map markers.

If you want to know more about conversion, read this thread.

If you wish to work with Skyblivion in Creation kit, you'll need a stripped Skyrim.esm master (because Skyblivion is bigger than Skyrim and CK can't load them both in memory at the same time). Use tesvsnip utility and remove CELL and WRLD groups from Skyrim.esm. Don't forget to restore the original one back when playing, or game will crash.

Welcome to Oblivion!

Looks great so far but there

Looks great so far but there is no way to make the lod work:/ even by unpacking the bsa (I think you've forgotten the "lodsettings" folder). Thank you so much for your work anyway, I'll start to work on grass when I can ; ).

edit: and if you use this mod delete the nirnroot or you won't play for long^^

Hi Zilav, awesome work Does

Hi Zilav,

awesome work ;) Does this have the quests and dialogues ? If not, since I read you don't have a lot of time at the moment, would you care to share the tes5edit scripts you used for dialogues and scripts in Skywind ?

thanks !

@anthelius Updated first post

@anthelius

Updated first post with a new link of updated archive, I forgot to include one file.

@digitalparanoid

Didn't I already post a link to scripts earlier in skywind thread? I don't remember.

Zilav:  Yeah, you did.... maybe?, but those were the skywind scripts.  Have you changed anything?

Anyway looks great!  I'm sure we'll get some people who will want to work on it.  Also, do you think you could share the scripts you used to add clothing and such?  Those could be useful for Skywind.

Skywind scripts should work

Skywind scripts should work the same. To convert Oblivion's dialogs:

1) make a copy of oblivion.esm

2) load it in tes4edit

3) remove everything except dialogs group, remove dialog topics with formid less than 800 (they are hardcoded values and won't work in skyrim, usually a GREETINGS topic, maybe something else)

4) add oblivion.esm as a master

5) apply Before DIAL script

6) save, copy to Skyrim, and open in tes5edit

7) set starting formid for dialog branches in After DIAL script, should be a free space in oblivion.esm range to not overlap with everything. I think something like $01400000, need to check in tes4edit.

8 ) Apply After DIAL script

9) Add skyblivion.esm as a master, apply "change load order of formid" script and set 01 to inject dialogs into Skyblivion.esm

10) Deep copy them to Skyblivion to merge

Just got an idea about

Just got an idea about objects LOD. Can someone who is familiar with CK set "IsFullLod" flag on IC, towns, ruins, bridges etc and make it an optional addon plugin. Yes it will probably stress engine, but way easier and faster than making lowpoly lod objects for everything and objects textures atlas.

We need it for screenshots and promo videos :)

We don't need to create

We don't need to create _far.nif, they are already in the skyblivion meshes ; ). We just need someone to generate it (and if you want even more lod meshes, you still have AEVWD on oblivion nexus).

Are you sure they were

Are you sure they were properly converted over? As far as I know there is an issue with lod meshes and "translation" in nifscope (saw a post in USKP official forum page some time ago).

You can always try to generate objects LOD yourself, I'll add it to package if you succeed :)

I don't know if they'll work, at least they look good in nifskope. I can try to generate it but I don't really know where to start (I've tried with the old master but it didn't work well, )

edit: and btw how did you generate tree lod? I'd like to redo it with more diversified GKB trees ; )

Of course, none of the trees

Of course, none of the trees we have can look as lush as the original trees. I hope there is a solution to have billboard trees in skyrim or it won't feel the same (or it will take a lot of polygons to have the same render with skyrim font trees).

Did you see what I said about

Did you see what I said about the Imperial city LOD?  If it's a simple process I could try and add it myself really quickly.  Is it easy to add a lod mesh?

Edit:  Oh, and I'm going to try everything out right now. :)

Edit:  Hey Zilav, I'm not sure if I just did something wrong on my end, but.... the books don't seem to have any text?  Other than that everything looks awesome so far.

assuming i deleted/ copied everything into the right folder (of which i´m pretty sure...) - what could be my mistake, because i got every time a ctd after the loading screen when trying to cow to cyrodiil (and tried about 25 times, also with all other mods deactivated)?

Text is there in master file, so some other issue (wrong mesh?).

i had indeed installed everything in the right place, but found what causes 100% ctd for me:

be deleting folders i traced it down to ".../meshes/tes4/dungeons/fortruins/exterior/castle"

this folder seems to contain something that brakes my game, without it everythings running as it should...

I think that to solve a problem with books you need to replace in all books "<FONT face=5>" to "<FONT face='$HandwrittenFont'>" and "<font face=1>" to "<font face='$SkyrimBooks'>". But I'm not sure. Also you maybe need to convert all books images from .dds to .png.

Yes, it works. Also you need to close these tags at the end of a book (</font>). There are some other fonts (2-4), but I'm not sure, where game uses them, and the main fonts are only 1 and 5. Also, there are some problems with formating (I assume its because of a lot of <br> tags).

Noticed a mesh glitches in

Noticed a mesh glitches in game with lod plugin from Sheo activated. Basically meshes overlap each other with a small shift when you are close to them. Unfortunately setting isFullLOD on cities was not a very good idea, or maybe it is because of bad mesh conversion, or just a buggy Skyrim's engine. Who knows...

honeslty i think oblivion's lighting was over the top. i like skyblivion right now... maybe with a very slight saturation boost but not a lot more. or even a small contrast boost, again very small.

Xbox 360

HHey I don't play games on pc but liked oblivion on Xbox 360. I was wondering if anyone is going to making skywind and skyblivion for Xbox 360 because that would be awesome and I won't end up playing these if they are on pc.

Nope. Pc only. It's made for pc. I'm not even sure the xbox has the specs to run it. Not to mention you would have to hack the console to install it.

Re-download the meshes but this time extract them in to: \Data\Meshes\tes4

Create it if it doesn't already exist

In you tes4 you should see:

clutter

I believe that most crashes are caused by broken nifs now. You'll just have to wait a bit until someone fixes them.

You did something wrong when installing.  It can be installed manually, that's how I did it.

mod for traveling back and forth between skyrim and cyrodill?

Hi, I Was wondering if someone could make a mod that would allow for fast travel between skyrim and cyrodill, like they did for skywind in the recent update. (skywind version 0.6) I'm certain that y'all are definitley planning on making one sooner or later anyways, seeing as how much of a pain it is to use the "cow tes4tamriel 5 10" console command every time I want to travel back and forth between the two... so I was wondering when do you guys think you will be able to get around to making one? (no pressure or offence intended, just wondering.) oh, and just to let you guys know, the pale pass mod for c201 does not work for this obviously, as it is for a completely different (and obsolete) mod. so no help there... btw just how hard would it be to create a mod such as this in creation kit, because if it's not all that hard and someone could tell me how, I could make it myself...

many thanks!

(oh and on a completely unrelated note, I have both skywind and skyblivion installed on the same copy of skyrim and they work well together so yeah they are completely compatible with each other as far as i can see, and both run full speed no lag or anything such as load time increase! at least for me... thought i'd let you guys know in case any of you were wondering and didn't know already.) thanks for the amazing work guys and keep it up!!!

If you get permission, you could change the pale pass mod so the "door" links to the one in the new Cyrodiil, you just have to make a target door in Cyrodiil and remove the original one from the mod.

That might be a bit of a problem.  But it's pretty easy to make a new mod based on the old one (this might also be better as changing the original one might cause issues in the future):

1  Download and install the original Skyblivion and the Pale Pass mod, and get the cell coordinates for the "door" in Cyrodiil and also the one in Skyrim.

2  Remove the original Skyblivion and install the Reborn version.  Then make a plugin with doors in the correct cells and link them.  Remember to add map markers on both sides so you can fast travel.  From there you can also add roads later on.
