Realistic Water for Oblivion

Recently went on an Oblivion spree, adding some new mods. In the Nexus' hot files slideshow on the main page, I noticed a mod by the name of Realistic Water. I've tried water "fixers" or replacers before, and always been underwhelmed. They either come out pretty crappy, or murder my FPS in a manner that would normally demand a trial be convened at the Hague.

I'm pleased - if surprised - to note that Realistic Water fits neither criteria. It does improve the looks; and did not make a noticeable hit to my framerate.

All in all, success.

If you're in the market for such a mod, I can recommend this one.


  1. Something to keep in mind for when I delve back into Oblivion. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hmm... no major FPS impact on your system should equal sweetness on my rig (no offense intended)... I might just have to check out this one. Thanks!

  3. No problem, s'what you pay me for.

    ...Wait, I don't get paid.

    Why did I sign up for this, again...?

    Hm. Oh well, I'm sure I had a good reason; I'll remember someday. Until then, back to modding!
