What Is Project Desolo?

Open Me
For those of you who may not know, I started a project a while ago known as Project Paradise. Well due to a lot going on I obviously haven't been able to work on it at all. The announcement of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gave me the motivation to try to finish what I started. Due to Project Paradise being taken in a different direction by the community, I decided to rename, Project Desolo.

Project Desolo is a custom made settlement that will include anything and everything that anyone could want. For those of you who followed Project Paradise, my original project, it will be built directly off of that save. Unfortunately due to a computer crash, I have lost that construction set files of Project Paradise. So everything that has previously been completed cannot be edited, for the most part. Keep reading to find out what exactly is in Project Desolo.

From the beginning the only new items you have will be the following:

  • God Mode - UP on the D-Pad
  • Max Skills - LEFT on the D-Pad
  • Max Attributes - RIGHT on the D-Pad

“God Mode” has the following enchantments: 100% Reflect Damage, 100% Reflect Spell, 100% Resist Disease, 100% Resist Paralysis, and 100% Resist Poison.
“Max Skills” adds 100 points to each skill.
“Max Attributes” adds 1000000 points to each attribute except speed. 50 points is added to speed.

HOWEVER, once you reach the estate you will find many different weapons, armors, and clothing around. Here’s the entire list. NOTE: Most of the enchantments are POINTLESS. Unfortunately I could not remove the enchantments without destroying the weapon. So hex-edit the items to your liking!

After waking up in the jail cell, you find a crumbled note. You quickly stash it in your pocket when you hear voices coming.


Notes and FAQ’s

Open Me


1. Dremora Race Glitch
DO NOT, change try to change to a female dremora. It will cause the game to crash. Enough said.

2. Glitched Auroran Greaves
Unfortunately, there was no way around this. Every time this item is equipped, it gets stretched all over the place. However, here are some tips to make it manageable. Equip everything else you want then exit the inventory. Go back and then equip the greaves. Now while playing in 3rd-Person, the item should just have one strand stretched to the ground. I KNOW this is annoying but I did not want to leave this item out.

3. Problems With Going Through Doors
This seems to be rare but once in a while after using the portals, or just being in the settlement for sometime, the game will crash when trying to walk out the front door. My only advice for this is to save often when inside in case of a crash.

4. Extra Items in Chest
[i]In the Master Bedroom there is a chest filled with unenchanted versions of all of the modded items. If you put these on display outside of a container, save, then reload, they will disappear.


1. How Do I Install It?
Rehash and Resign then transfer to your Xbox. If you don’t know how to do this search around, there are plenty of tutorials.

2. Where is the settlement/estate?
Go to the Shack for Sale in the Imperial Waterfront District and look for a trap door. The rest is self-explanatory.

Download and Final Thoughts

Thanks for all the support everyone has given! And hopefully if Skyrim is built the same way, you can all expect another save similar to this. Now ENJOY!


Please provide a Virus Scan.

I dont fully trust the download.


This is not a virus. -.-
It is the best Oblivion save that you will play.
This guy is an awesome Oblivion modder.

But if you insist:

Here’s the virus scan. Just for a little piece of mind.

Haha Alright I have trust now.

Thank you for putting up the scans though.



I have to give you cred 1st i didn’t think binds in oblivion were possible 2nd I <3 oblivion and i can tell you do 3rd this save is over all amazing :smiley:
good luck getting it out there

Woot. Something that’ll keep me busy while I wait for Skyrim. Thanks!

How does this work? I didn’t think you could map mod for xbox? Someone Elaborate.

You make the mod on PC using the construction set. Then using a method you can make it into a save game file. You can’t add new textures etc, obviously.

Well yea but, what is this “method”

Basically the same as How To Mod Like The Metal Doc but replace the Fallout things with Oblivion.

OK I don’t follow that tutorial. Any other places where a better tutorial can be found?
