Oblivion Gone Wild

May 6, 2006

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (a game I'm playing right now) has had it's rating changed from "teen" to "mature." It turns out that Bethesda included the artwork for female breasts in the game's files, so all it takes is a little mod to remove the otherwise-mandatory bras. Details at cnet.

Oblivion is very popular, having sold over 1.7 million copies since launch. Most of those sales are for Xbox 360, though. The TES Construction Set, necessary for Oblivion modding, can only be used on the PC version.

It remains to be seen if Senator Clinton will get her panties in a bunch over this one.

Explains Raph Koster: "You pretty much have to include a nude or near-nude model in order to have a good clothing system, because anything drawn onto the base model will show through when you do certain clothing types. You could, of course,go to the extra lengths to have alternate underwear sets drawn onto alternate base models, so that there’s always a base model to choose from that works with a given piece of clothing, but what an asset nightmare."
