Oblivion: Most Interesting AI Experiences

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 
I decided that I would make a thread about interesting AI occurrences in Oblivion, since I've been supprised quite a few times by the NPCs in this game.

Here is one of mine:
I went to Olav's Tap & Tack in Bruma to buy some lockpicks, and when I entered, I saw a Nord with a big silver hammer, which didn;t seem too strange at first, then he walked over to a door and lockpicked it. After he had opened the door, he took the hammer off his back and started attacking someone in the room he had lockpicked, after he saw me, he turned around and started attacking me, so I ran outside and un-equiped my Dark Brotherhood armour thinking that he thought I was going to kill him maybe. So I walked back into the tavern, and he was attacking this Dunmer guy, but he could only knock him unconcious since he was a main NPC or something. He spotted my again (even though I didn't have my DB armour on) and he ran at mem again! So attacked him with my enchanted Dark Brotherhood dagger, and he ran out of the tavern since his health was so low, and I've never seen him since.

I'm not sure why all this happened (I know it wasn't part of a quest), but it was sure entertaining.

Another interesting NPC AI occurrence, was when I was riding my newly bought Black Horse from Cheydanal (how you spell it?), and I saw that there was a Minotaur about 50 feet away from me, but it haden't spotted it. Since I really didn't want to get off my horse and fight it, I decided to avoid it. A few seconds later, I see a bandit run over a hill, and start attacking the Minotaur. It was quite entertaining. I just stood back and watched as the bandit doged the Minotaur's attacks. I then see an Imperial guard on horseback come over the hill, and then dismount, and start running twards the Minotaur. The bandit and guard looked like they were having a hard time fighting the Minotaur. After about 10 seconds, I see ANOTHER imperial guard come over the hill, dismount, and start running twards the Minotaur! After the 3 NPC's had killed the thing, both the guards start attacking the bandit, after it starts attacking them. The bandit is killed, then one of the guards starts attacking the other (probabally because he missed during the fight). So the one guard prevails, and the other guard starts rolling down the hill, into the valley. I found that situation to be very entertaining aswell.

I love watching the AI get all stupid on each other, and a mod to make this more often would be quite entertaining.

lol nice story. I had one.. I was in the Tap and Tack and waited 24 hours. Well when I came back there was a gaurd, and 3 people blocked by me. I move this one guy gets in sneak mode, goes and steals something and walks out, everyone yells "Theif!". The gaurd then went out and chased the person. It was all.. Very odd. I didnt follow though, was doing a quest.

Ah yes, that happened to me once also.
I was in Olav's Tap'n Tack, and I witnessed a begger stealing food from the table to eat it (poor guy, must have been hungry). Every one yelled "Stop, thief!" also, a guard rushed in, and just looked at the guy, then left. The guard didn't seem to care much...

I've got another one. I was in Bravil looking for the Mages Guild there, and since I've got a high acrobatics skill, I thought it would be fun to jump accross buildings.
It was about 9ish at night, and I noticed a strange sort of tap/clink sound. I followed the direction of it, and I found a Breton and a Wood Elf standing outside of a locked house, both with potions in their hands. I just stood there and watched for 2 in-game hours, they just drank away. I talked to them and they didn't seem to say much. I finally got bored of watching them chug down potions, so I left.
I just found that situation to be very strange.
