Description
During the time of the Oblivion Crisis, it was said that Skyrim was hit especially hard by the Daedric invasion. Yet, a mere 200 years later there isn't a single sign of this event ever having happened anywhere. Such a monumental event in history would surely have left its mark, especially in the cities. When Martin Septim made the ultimate sacrifice to seal the barriers to Oblivion forever, this did not remove the structural components that would be left behind by suddenly having the dimensional gateway closed down without warning. While logic may suggest that the citizens of Skyrim would have done all they could to be rid of these menaces, I don't believe this would have been a top priority. Some might even have left them standing as a reminder of what almost was.

This mod's purpose is simple and to the point. Each of the 5 major hold capitols has an Oblivion Gate either inside or near it. They are merely for decoration and will not be made functional in any way. They're simply there to add back the missing atmosphere that Bethesda left out. An homage to Oblivion (the game) if you will. It also serves as a token bit of my Open Cities mod that at least I can still enjoy even if Patch 1.9 has denied me my major work.

As a complement to this mod, get MCR's excellent "Oblivion Gates"[skyrim.nexusmods.com] which places several gates using the same resources all over Skyrim and parts of the Dawnguard DLC too.

The gates are in relatively out of the way spots in each city so there should be little chance for conflicts.

No navmeshes have been edited, and there are no issues with NPCs getting stuck on them.

I like the mod. I too was expecting some evidence of the Oblivion Crisis when I got the game so many years ago on the 360. I had heard through the citizens in Oblivion that Skyrim was being hit hard, yet no evidence was found in Skyrim when I played.

Arthmoor,do you think you could make a mod like this but that adds a different questline(like WyrmsTooth & Faalskar)that adds the gates functional after some time from some type of Daedra Lord,making you need to defeat him but to gain some items first(like Aria-Els Bow from dawnguard)and do some other things,and when you eliminate him,you gain some type of Tome that lets you go in and out of Oblivion(or whatever it is called)anytime you want...hopefully you understand this.

also the guy from the mythic dawn was a deserter of his ideals because he sought to oppose mehrunes when he told dovahkiin to kill the guy and the mythic dawn were supposed to be loyal to mehrunes dagon

The guy in the museum is wrong then. Play Oblivion. Listen to the various accounts of the Daedric invasion taking place in Morrowin, Skyrim, and Summerset. Read the two Keyes books which verify these accounts as actually having taken place.

Then realize who is RUNNING the museum. A Mythic Dawn fanboi. Quite possibly still a devotee. Take what he says with a grain of salt because his position is horribly biased at best.

The npc's in skyrim only helped organize the event as the guy with the muesum says the event happened only in cryodill

Except the NPCs in Oblivion (the game) will tell you otherwise. It was known to be at least a continent wide event on Tamriel, and very likely the rest of Nirn too. Which I bet the Akaviri didn't see coming.

If youo go by the story the mythic dawn were only after cryodill and was the only place hit by the oblivion gates
