Here are some of the mods that I personally found to be essential (I would not go back to playing Oblivion without these).

All listed mods can be found on

the Elder Scrolls Nexus: The Elder Scrolls Nexus - Oblivion mods and community
the Engineering Guild: http://www.theengineeringguild.co.uk…-Scrolls-Forum
Planet Elder Scrolls: Planet Elder Scrolls - Maps, News, Oblivion, Cheats, Downloads
Bethsoft Official Mods Forum: Oblivion Mods - Bethesda Softworks Forums
