Better Horse's (1.00v) - File Description  

This mod should make all player-owned horses essential and swim. Tthats basically it. This is the first version though, so there are probably some bugs.

The horses already swim. Well, they do when you're riding them - although mine starts breathing like it's about to die when it gets out the water.

As for being essential - good idea. I'm sick of being attacked by something, unable to defend until I'm off the horse, by which time my horse is about dead.

While I'm thinking about it, is there a mod that lets you use a weapon and/or shield, or do magic, while on a horse? If so, could someone please point me to it...?

I agree with mikeyp, while on horseback one should be able to use weapons and magic. The main reason I don't use horses is because they're too much of a burden to protect(I can almost run as fast as most too). Also, since Oblivion has a pretty nice physics engine, I don't see why it's not possible to trample things. I know there are some good modders out there, I hope someone will give it a shot smile

This mod is pretty much useless if you have Shadowmere, although he starts walking away from you after he dies once... maybe someone could fix that?

As for the Oblivion physics engine, I think its almost laughable. There's no such thing as terminal velocity in the world of Cyridiil. Things just fall at that same slow constant speed. I've noticed this because I've sent MANY bodies flying with my enchanted Daedric LongDevil!

Yeah...the ragdoll physics are pretty slow, but appearantly you haven't used the FlyingDeaths mod wink

I'm not concerned about falling speed in particular, I could care less how slow the bodies fall. I would just like to have there be a reason to ride a horse into combat. Holding a torch is about the only thing you can do really, and I don't find that to be all that threatening to people on foot...

Horses have a big role in Fantasy/Medieval genre's, so they should at least be a little more worthwhile

Shadowmere is a she. Lucience says so.

Nice mod, essential status is good.
