Details
This mod is a direct result of following PC Gamer's article titled "Create Your Own Zombie Massacre in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion" from the February 2007 issue on pages 80-82.

The article was followed as closely as possible but there were some mistakes that I had to avoid such as hitting the "Recompile All" script button and several ID names being the same which must be unique.

This archive is distributed in what I call OMOD-Ready format.
It allows you to manually extract and install like most other mods but it also allows you to use Oblivion Mod Manager and import this archive with all the settings pre-configured for an OMOD file.

1. Copy archive to (install folder)\Oblivion\obmm\mods\

Upgrade
N/A

Incompatibility
Incompatible with all life in Cyrodiil.

Known Issues or Bugs
If you don't use the "No Respawns or Essential NPCs" mod, the zombie may get stuck in areas that have several "Essential NPCs" such as the Arena area where the Champion resides.

Saved Games
I thought it went without saying but someone asked...I would recommend not saving over your existing games with this mod enabled.

I don't plan to make modifications to this mod. I want it closely resemble what PC Gamer described.
