Default Oblivion Mods for a First-Timer

Iím finally going to be starting Oblivion for the first time in the next week or so. I assume the official and unofficial patches are recommended. My question is what mods might be useful. I went online, and there appears to be two main sites Ė texnexus and uesp; however, there are so many mods that it is frankly a bit overwhelming. So Iím looking to the good folks at SP for help.

Iím not so much interested in new content (since itís all new to me). Instead, Iím looking for mods that take care of things that players generally find irritating Ė kind of like BG2ís Ease Of Use / Tweakpack. Also, because I have a new computer, Iím sure I can run anything graphically that game has available, so if there is anything people can recommend in that regard, that would be great.

Of course, if there are any ďmust-haveĒ mods that donít fall into the above categories, let me know!

TIA

I'm about to do a run soon, as well. This, I'm told, is a pretty good place to start:

Thanks DR. That looks like a pretty good list. Francesco’s, Unique Landscapes, Qarl’s Texture Pack, Natural Environments and Darnified UI all look like they'd be good for what I'm looking for.

A bit late. The instant fast travel mod will make you happy. It will let you fast-travel from the places you cannot, like cave's or dungeons.

Full with loot, no need to walk trough the entire cave....
