Ever feel stupid being the best thief, and going in the front door?
Ever been caught because the only way out was the front door where the owner was?
Fix it with this mod! Use a window to escape!
 What this mod does
This Mod makes every window in Anvil useable. (apart from about 10 because of problems with collision)
You can use the windows to enter houses exactly like a door.
It is illegal to use the windows, just as it is to go through the doors.
It also adds four havok Ladders into the town of Anvil. They are placed beside the Fighters Guild.
The ladders can be useful in getting up to the second floor windows.
To use the ladders, you use the Z key to drag the ladder like you would any other item. Position it how you like, but it can not go to a vertical angle, as you do not "climb" the ladder, you just run up. It can go almost vertical, but sometimes requires you to jump on then run up it.
The ladders are not a new mesh. It is an existing model, that Darknel applied Havok physics to.
This mod is basically for roleplaying and to add some realism. You no longer need to be a master theif, and enter through the front door, which seemed stupid to me.
Extract the contents of this folder into Oblivion/Data Directory.
Then enable the mod in list of mods (like normal)
Then go play, and have fun!
On some houses, the textures up high appear to overlap, this is not my mod, I think Bethesda didn't plan on us getting up that high. Also, collision up high on buildings is usually rubbish. That caused a few problems when placing my windows, but everything is fine now.
You could probably use the ladders to reach places you're not meant to, so be careful where you go, and dont complain to me that it spoils the game if you use them irresponsibly.;-)
 In Future Versions
For future releases, I will do it a city at a time. So, like this
- Esp one -- Anvil
- Esp two -- Chorrol
- Esp three -- Leyawain
I do not think I will do an Imperial City one, as it will conflict with other mods improving the city. If there is a big enough demand, I will do it.
I will also release a ladder Pack. It will include the ladders and scripts for them, and other people are allowed to use these in their own mods.
It does NOT conflict with ILLUMINATION WITHIN
It does NOT conflict with OPEN CITIES
All this mod does is use a collision box as a door, then i place them over windows, so there shouldnt be conflicts, but you never know.
Please tell me if there are any more
- Darknel-For applying Havok to Ladder, and making ladder twice as long
- Addiktive-For doing Ladder Icon
- Gontro-- Is doing Bravil

- People on CS forums, for helping me
- Anyone else who i forgot (sorry), reports bugs or anything to do with this mod
Use this mod however you want. You dont need to give credit to me (although it would be nice). I dont think Darknel minds people using the ladder model, but you better ask him and give him credit anyway :-)
