FAQ posted to TESSource

Looks like my FAQ will be getting even more readers.

TESSource, which hosts by far the largest database of Oblivion Mods, has opened a new Tutorials section, and I've posted a copy of my Oblivion Mods FAQ there.

Oblivion is the newest entry to my list of greats.

You see, all this fuss about preserving "true RPG" elements and such don't mean much to …

Elder Scrolls Forum pins FAQ

The good news just keeps rolling in!

The moderators on the official Elder Scrolls Forums have pinned the ESF version of my Oblivion Mods FAQ.

This should make it a LOT easier for new fans to get started with player-made mods for Oblivion and help to reduce the number of newbie questions posted in the official Oblivion Mods forum.


PlanetElderScrolls Adds Links to Oblivion Mods FAQ

Good news update!

APY, over at PlanetElderScrolls, has added a link from his Installing Oblivion Mods intro to my FAQ. I think this will introduce a whole new group of readers to the Oblivion Mods FAQ.

Thanks, APY!
