What Skyrim mods should I get?

Recommended Posts

Ultimate Follower Overhaul


Official HD textures or 2K Textures

All of the USKPs


T3nd0s Skyrim Redone 

CBBE or UNP for better character models

XP32 skeleton (ensures compatibility with a lot of other mods)


Also, you may wish to look into ENBs, if you have the graphical horsepower to drive them.

I went for the aurora and twilight followers, the CBBE (NSFW when setting up, it can be made SFW), and the tame beasts mod... everything else seemed not worth the download time.
