Improved Oasis II is now a component of Quest Pack and is no longer available as a standalone mod.
The original Improved Oasis (as found in the Tactics mod) was met with critical acclaim:
"I was no more compelled by the Oasis enemies' motivations to attack me now than I was before I installed the mod. It made me suspect that the mod author put only three minutes of work into it and never intended for it to become part of Tactics."
- Jason Compton
And now Improved Oasis is back, and better than ever...
It always seemed to me that the Oasis was a very limited area, designed only for combat. Jamis Tombelthen's dialog was insultingly small, and there was only one possible outcome: battle. This component expands Jamis Tombelthen's dialog in the Oasis area, to potentially allow for a peaceful solution rather than inevitable conflict. This component will work fine alongside the original Improved Oasis included in the Tactics mod. But you shouldn't have that installed. Really. Please?
PLEASE NOTE that Improved Oasis II does NOT require the original Improved Oasis (as found in the Tactics mod) to work.
As of version 5 of IO2, the combat enhancement of the Oasis makes a triumphant return. Influenced by those who were unhappy with the component included with the Tactics mod, the Oasis combat is now bigger and better
Note that this component is entirely optional, and anyone who is interested only in the dialog enhancement need not install the combat changes. It'll overwrite the Improved Oasis in Tactics, but who cares, eh?
This component was suggested/designed primarily by SixOfSpades.
Disclaimer: As lighthearted and pathetic as this thread is, the mod itself IS serious and sensibly-written, so any concerns about content not meshing well with the original game may be laid to rest.
