While almost 90% of the pictures are great, they are usually portraits with a character posing alone with a background.
But this has action too, so 10/10.

Good job, Floydian. I don't wanna know why a plant is growing from the troll's back, do I? Nice job, anyway. You get another 10/10. Keep it up. Maybe alter the voting so I can vote 11'swink

I'm actually getting bored with these images. I think I prefer the horrible unfunny captioned pictures.

#5,

Yep, pictures at the lowest graphical settings and corny jokes are *so* much better than this. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)



As for the shot, it's pretty much flawless, as always. 10/10

This was rated a perfect for a little while, at least. I blame the always-rate-low-even-on-good-pictures People.

#6, I never said those pictures were BETTER.

I said I was BORED with these pictures and that I miss the crappy captioned ones. The guy has submitted the same kind of image over and over.

Lurn 2 comprehend statements.

Actually, he made a point.
He didn't offend anyone, he just told his opinion.
You can't force him to leave.

Opinions are welcome, trolling is not. So far his only other comment on another potd has been negative, if it's the case he is going trash potds other than his own then we have a problem.

Actually and I quote "The guy has submitted the same kind of image over and over"

Please point me to the same picture?

Floydian, I don't believe you know what 'trolling' is. I merely stated my opinion.

Just because you and all the other members don't agree with it doesn't automatically make it trolling.

And again I must correct a statement.

Me: "The guy has submitted the same kind of image over and over"

You: "Please point me to the same picture?"

I didn't say same picture. I said same KIND of picture. Yours and almost every other PotD for the last week have been the same overly dramatic, bloom ridden shots, and my opinion simply states: I am bored with them.

Don't get upset with me becuase I don't give all the same kind of shots perfect 10/10 scores.

Head over to jk3files. The "funny" pictures are practically all they have over there. But Oblivion is famous for it's graphics and scenery. So what are you likely to get if you go to an Oblivion site? GRAPHICS AND SCENERY.

And besides, if you want "funny" pictures, I have some key advice: MAKE YOUR OWN.

RogerSmith,

You do realize there are other sites with sections for screenshots, don't you? Go look at those site for the screenshots you want to see, don't b*tch ad moan at this one site because you're not getting the ones you would like to see.

Or, better yet, don't see what you like, learn to do it yourself. Then maybe you won't take well done screenshots for granted, because then, you'll know the work and thought that goes into them.

Oh saruman45, you must still be angry that my werewolf image didn't amuse you.

So logic is: This game is legendary for it's bloom graphics, speedtree scenery and ease of being modded, so lets just keep going with that. The game is not at all known for it's unpredictable game play that can sometimes result in zany and dare I say...HUMOROUS scenes?

WHAT'S THAT? TWO MINOTAURS SLEEPING IN A BED ILLEGALLY AT THE INN OF ILL OMEN? FFFFFFFF GET THAT BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE WITH THE QUAINT BABBLING BROOK AND THAT SKELETON WITH THE BOW AND ARROW. BE SURE TO CATCH THAT MYSTIC ELF USING REN'S BEAUTY PACK TOO.

Infallible says I.

So deathknowz, Elder Scrolls filefront is restricted to ONLY striking HDR scenery and nothing else? And if I want the occasional laugh I have to journey all the way over to JK3? I think you need to sit the next couple of plays out.

All I can do is shake my head. I come here trying to participate in PotD, and when I voice an opinion that isn't agreed upon all I hear is GB2 JK3 LOL.

Maybe I should just start 10 star rating every picture that some guy took from his modded Oblivion.

ES, I am disappoint..... I am disappoint.

You know, I'm always on here poking around for interesting things. Been around for a few months now. But I have to agree here with Roger Smith. (Cool name btw, Big O ftw) I'm pretty sick of seeing all the pics of the day being nothing but pretty, dramatic wallpaper screen shots. Sure, they're pretty, and well shot. Some good looking mods to be seen. But none of them worthy of PotD.

PotD should have to do with the game. Not modded photos of the game that should be on a wallpaper site. If you want to post pretty crap, Go to Deviantart or something. Start posting things about the game, seriously.

Never thought I'd see the day people start asking for crappy POTDs.


Rogersmith,

There are other sites, such as the nexus or planetelderscrolls, that have POTD sections. If you're too lazy to find or make the types of shots you like, that's your problem, no one else's. Don't whine about nonexistent problems.

Srankzero,

You've got no right to tell anyone what or where to post.

But I would like for you to elaborate on how, exactly, screenshots of modded Oblivion has nothing to do with the game, and how exactly plain old, predictable, Vanilla Oblivion is more interesting.

You misunderstood.

"But I would like for you to elaborate on how, exactly, screen shots of modded Oblivion has nothing to do with the game, and how exactly plain old, predictable, Vanilla Oblivion is more interesting."

Let me clarify for your disability; In no mention did I say vanilla Oblivion was more interesting. In no mention did I say that modded games were not worthy of PotD.

What I said was as follows; PRETTY PICTURES SHOULDN'T BE CONSIDERED POTD. Why? Because it has NOTHING to do with the game.

Take this picture for example; It's POSED. Posed pictures, mostly for games, are incapable of being interesting, unless you have some sense of over compensation. Now, a picture of werewolves walking around in the city not attacking people, just chillin'? That's interesting since that's uncommon and... just flat out shouldn't happen. It gives you something to think about. ZOMG WTF ARE THEY DOING THERE? ...and why aren't they ravaging the town?

You can't have the same thoughts with such pretty, posed pictures. You know how everything pretty much happened. He modded his game, he posed it, froze it, and pressed print screen. Huzzah. It's almost photoshop magic.

I remember when I played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl. And on it's file front was pic of the day. Every day, the picture would usually consist of a normal screen shot of an in game happening. Which this site completely lacks. Weather it be a pack of Snorks roaming around... by roaming I mean coming at your face. Or a Bloodsucker in the middle of the street grabbing someone and doing a WRYYYYYYYYYYYYY! (Which happens in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky) They were interesting. These are not interesting. Just pretty and boring.

Bethesda provided the Construction Kit. Bethesda encourages modding, and has an "Oblivion Mods" section no their site. Modding *is* part of the game. Unless, of course, you only have the game on a console - in which I call jealousy.

It's been what - 3 years since the game came out? What new & interesting shots could we see now from the vanilla game?

And I assume you also want shots with the hud on 'em, since you want stuff straight from the game.

"Boring" is your opinion. I find the vanilla game boring & these shots infinitely more interesting. Some folks like pretty, yknow.

But dk's completely right (and about more than this). If you don't like it, produce your own & submit it. Obviously the people who produce these sorts of screenshots enjoy doing it. But of course if it doesn't please you, they should stop. *eyeroll* And you'll see shots like this on PES & Nexus. If you want a POTD that's solely devoted to pics from the vanilla game with no mods & no photoshopping, go start your own site.

There. Problem solved, and you'd have something that catered exactly to your wishes, rather than something which showed all sorts of shots (excepting those that still have a HUD on 'em - which was actually due to popular request here).

Well, I'm sure now that my opinion has been labeled boring it means less than everyone else's pretty opinions.

So I leave my final opinion on this horribly ignorant discussion: These images are boring. Use some imagination and stop downloading pretty mod packs and stop trying to show off your 1337 modding skills. They aren't 1337. They aren't cool. They aren't pro.

#23 - er, what?

#21, in support of you, called these pics boring. In response I said 'boring' was a matter of opinion. I find vanilla boring, others find this boring.

Modding isn't cool? Since when? And as to quality - I have *definitely* used mods that were of a professional quality; I do in fact know that there are several modders who mod as a hobby and also work in the industry.

I simply don't understand your argument. At all. Unless you're on a console & can't use mods & therefore hate them, or have a very old compuer & can't use mods & therefore hate them. If your argument is that the game shouldn't ever be modded because then it goes against the intention of the devs - well, tell the devs that, since they're the ones releasing a CS & encouraging modding.

I sort of agree with #21, cause it's not an art site, there is a place like deviant for artists.
I mean, we're sticking pretty paintings around in the streets, right?
And we never will.
People like random bullsh*t.
People who disagree, lack the basic common sense.
Pimp!

I am not angry about the werewolves. I like werewolves. I even gave you constructive advice, and said you weren't forced to listen to my opinion. I just tried to explain that Oblivion is famous for it's graphics and scenery, so that is what you should learn to expect from Oblivion sites. I never insulted you. And is there anything wrong with mods? Oblivion was DESINGED for mods. Bethesda created a Construction Set forthe public to mod with. They even make some mods of there own. You ever here of DLC?

Those pointing to deviantart: that site does not acccept *screenshots* (which these are) as part of their normal galleries. These are not paintings, they're screenshots. They be manipulated post-shot in photoshop, but they're still showing game content.

I'll say it again: if you want completely unmodded screenshots, go start a site dedicated entirely to the vanilla game. I think demanding only unmodded screenshots on elderscrollsFILES (a site for downloading mod files) is a little . . . odd.

It should be pointed out that without user made mods this site would close or never even exist, note the 'Files' part in the site title, the same applies to Nexus & PES. If you are looking for totally vanilla shots then you are 3 years too late, and Roger Smith your screenshot featured Werewolves, I don't seem to recall seeing them in vanilla Oblivion?

You're all STILL talking about the mods. How ignorant do you have to be to understand what we're saying?

MODS. THEY DO NOT. MATTER. AT ALL.

SETUP, POSED, AND SLIGHTLY ARTISTIC PICTURES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GAME.

This is my last post. (comments deleted by moderator)

Good day.

Moderator: If you have a point to make then fine, but if you start hurling insults at users of this site then consider this a warning, you will be delt with.

If it has nothing to do with mods, you and your buddy sure tossed that word around and implied it a lot.

And if you don't want "artistic" pictures, then make your own crappy ones with corny captions and submit them, as you *seem* capable of doing so.

There is a solution to every "problem", and when you have the option of doing something to help "fix" it, but won't, don't b*tch about it. wink
