About This File

Name: Ruins of Malamath

Version: 2.0

Build Start Date: 11/18/2009

Beta Test Release Date: 11/20/2010

Final Version Release Date: 02/03/2011

Category: Dungeons

Author: DSoS

=================

Requirements:

=================

Oblivion 1.2.416

MMM, OOO, etc is recommended (But not required), vanilla is fine, but you may not run into alot of enemies.

=================

Description:

=================

Malamath was long lost, but recently discovered. The adventurers that discovered the Ayleid ruins were never seen again. Many say its pure evil inside that cold stone door. Could the be right? Have you got what it takes to adventure inside? Try your luck, and watch your step!!!

=================

Details:

=================

Location is South of Timber Scar Hollow

Level 15 or higher recommended.

Beware of your step!

=================

Installation

=================

1. Extract this archive to the Data folder. No overwriting should be needed!

2. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, and enable the .esp file(s).

3. Save

4. PLEASE WAIT FOR x-Amount of days (3-days if vanilla) for the place to re-spawn and new enemies to be loaded. If you do NOT you WILL (most likely) CTD upon entry.

=================

Un-Installation:

=================

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).

2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod. (Usually under the folder name of "DSoS")

=================

Upgrade:

=================

If you have had the previous version installed, you MUST UNINSTALL IT.

Delete the malamath.esp

Delete the following folders:

\meshes\Dsos\Malamath

\sound\fx\Dsos\Malamath

\textures\Dsos\malamath

\textures\menus\icons\Dsos\Malamath

I believe that is all of the folders that were included with the first version. Make sure to do a search for "*malamath" (without the quotes) (the star helps sometimes to find things especially with Windows 7)

After all files are gone, just place the new plugin file and the bsa into the data folder. Go in and check it, wait for 3-14 days for respawn and find the location and start exploring.

Save

PLEASE WAIT FOR x-Amount of days (3-days if vanilla) for the place to re-spawn and new enemies to be loaded. If you do NOT you WILL (most likely) CTD upon entry.

========================================================================================================================

I updated Malamath for the following reasons:

*Created a BSA for malamath. (Included with the 1.5.0b (this version your testing)

*Light sources and lights don't match up at some areas.

*Disabled some exterior items, until triggered by player in Dead Mans Caves.

*All custom items *should* have icons new, weapons, armor, clutter (plates, bowls, etc.)

I think that is all that I fixed that needed to be fixed.

oh btw, I would suggest being atleast level 15+.

I know that some areas will most likely cause lag, but it shouldn't lag for too long. I've had reports from the first release about little lag but wasn't a big issue.

------

Have at it and let me know what you find or don't find.

Thank you
