Skyrim on Steam, So Many Mods!!!

Postby bocag1393 » Sat Nov 23, 2013 7:42 pm

So I recently acquired a steam copy of the legendary edition of Skyrim (only had it for xbox360 before) and I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of mods for it. Does anyone have suggestions on some good ones?

Luckily those DLC are part of the legendary edition of the game :) . I was wondering what people thought of the user-made content available through the steam workshop.

I have heard that SkyRe is pretty cool. However it is easier to become over-encumbered.

Do a Google search of recommended mods. There are some great ones out there that will make it very pretty. Of course it's all limited by what your PC can handle.

I like the High Resolution mod. It doesn't affect all of the graphics, but it does make quite a few cities and areas, such as Solitude, look really good.

Does anyone have suggestions on some good ones?
That's not an easy question to answer as it really depends upon your tastes, and what your PC can handle. Currently, not counting SKSE, I run with about 30 different mods.

Let's see . . . in my own list there is a mod which adds a new follower (Vilja is great), allows for more than one follower, some mods which add new clothing, weapons, and armor sets, while others affect the climate and weather, and still others are purely graphical - modifying textures, character models, etc.

I'm not a huge fan of using the Steam Workshop for my mods because I've found that many of the mods posted there were not posted by the actual mod's author and therefore create a world of problems if you're not careful. Therefore I would point you to Skyrim Nexus. Here's their list of the most "endorsed" mods: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/se ... ge=1&pUp=1.

I also like their mod manager and would highly recommend it. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/modmanager/?

You should try out getting an "ENB" and higher resolution textures if your pc can handle it. You should also check out "SkyUI", it cleans up the interfaces quite well and looks great.
The nexus forum has tons of mods and a great way to install them very easily.

I just added a lot of swords from movies and games I've played and watched before, made the experience pretty fun

I feel that the over-saturation of mods has made Skyrim a flexible game. Players can change almost everything both mechanically and visually.

A really good mod on the workshop is "You Sha'n't be Beheaded! You Are All Pardoned Version". It removes all by chance decapitation which makes Skyrim a lot better xD. The only 2 decapitations it does not remove is the beheadings.

Here are some mods on the steam workshop that i would recommend,

A Quality World Map and Solstheim Map - With Roads
Towns and Villages Enhanced, It's multiple mods for each town/city
Horse Armors
Lovely hairstyles CE (for females only)
Relighting Skyrim
Eyes of Beauty

I especially love the map with roads one, just spent 10 minutes fiddling with the map
