Improved Facial Textures Redefined (2.1v) - File Description  

This increases the resolution of all facial textures through a complete facial texture overhaul. No longer will you notice discolored squares on people’s faces or jaggedy wrinkles. While this may change the way the faces look, rather than just making them look sharper, I believe it will look much more natural.

The screenshots do a moderate job of showing how much the facial textures are improved. I could not picture all of my textures, though. When you install this mod you can expect improved facial textures most of the time. It is recommended that you have are running DirectX 9.0 or greater. If you have a low version of DirectX, your video card will automatically reduce textures size, no matter what.

How to install

You can view the screenshots all you want to get a small idea about what IFT does, but to really appreciate it, you need to install it. And this part of the readme will help you with that.

First of all you need to locate your oblivion data directory. To do this, find your “program files” folder. Enter it and open “Bethesda softworks.” Then go to “oblivion.” After that open up the “data” folder. The path to this directory is something like this usually. "C:Program FilesBethesda SoftworksOblivionData"

When you look in the ZIP, you will notice a folder named, “textures.” Drag it into your Oblivion Data directory. IFT is now installed. If you already have a textures directory in your Oblivion data folder, then you need to drag the folder named “characters” from inside the textures folder included in the zip into the textures folder included on your hard drive in the obliviondata folder.

Mod conflicts and troubleshooting

This mod is compatible with any mods except those that replace facial textures, such as retextured orcs or dremora mods. I suggest you install IFT first, then extract those mods into your data folder replaceing files when neccisary.

Ah yes, I remember the old version of this mod. Well worth the download and install.
Makes you wonder why Bethesda didn't do their faces to this degree themselves

Ah, Bethesda was really lazy when they made Oblivion (and they truly show laziness with their "official plugins" like Knight of the Nine, most modders could do better, hell, I could do as good if I wanted to).Aaargh!!!

Oh and about the mod, great work. Two Thumbs Up!

To #4, I think the reason Bethesda didn't make the textures better is because this game got horrible FPS on ever ones computer at that time even if you had the top badass gaming computer its still didn't get the high of FPS. Anyways great textures ShadyTradesman!!!Hmmm Donut!RockTwo Thumbs Up!

Not sure about #6.. I custom built my computer only a couple months after oblivion was released, and I have no problems at all with FPS rate.. still downloading the updated textures but it's smooth as hell indoors/outdoors (even while downloading in the background). The graphics card is a little newer, but Athlon XP 64 300+, 1gig Geil DDR 400 (if i remember right), Radeon x850xt (256mb DDR), and western digital SATA hard drive. it's about due for an upgrade, want more ram, dual core processor, 512mb graphics card and a bigger hard drive but not only do I have no problems with this game, I have no problems with newer games. The newest games are getting jerky but what else can you expect from a 2-3 year old processor and 1.5-2 year old system?
