Alright guys, I'm playing Skyrim again...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've decided I need to play Skyrim again, but would love recommendations of mods from you guys. A simple texture mod I could maybe get away with running on my Macbook... I do have windows installed so yea

 

Anyways, I want to do a realistic playthrough. So any realism mods are appreciated. Also, do people still use Nexus Mod Manager?

 

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Try "Dual Hand Combo Hotkeys". A convenient mod for switching between dual wielded profiles.

Nah not unless you are getting too hectic with it. Steam Workshop is easier and has most of the popular Nexus mods.

The first person body mod and open cities.

I think the first person body mod is called something like "The joy of perspective" or something. And open cities does what it says on the tin. The cities are a part of the world and there are no loading screens.

They make one heck of a difference

Though if you want the open cities you can't do as much with adding trees and other things to them.

Several mentioned here in a really quick and dirty best of the year blurb(at around 1:20), just after a surreal intro which showcases a mod that is 150% lore friendly and must for realistic playthroughs.

There is also a "pay taxes" one, but I'm not sure if you were just after a visual fidelity sort of realism, or the babies, taxes and prego mamas and bills is what you're after.

Requiem is an amazing "oldschool" overhaul for Skyrim. Nothing scales with your character level, so there just are places you cant go if you aren't good enough. Even if you are like level 50 you still need tactics for most of the harder enemies but all enemies have weaknesses. For example draugr are pretty much impossible to kill if you don't have any silver or fire weaponry.

 

It isn't for everyone though. It's what i would call a hardcore mod.

No idea why you would want to limit FPS, but here you go. You can choose any framerate to limit the game to http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/34/?

It runs at like 160fps+ constant even with mods, The game goes completely nuts, It glitches constantly and makes weird noises and i'll be running along and my guy will start swimming as if he is in water, Completely unplayable

HIGHLY recommend you start by watching this video series. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE7DlYarj-DdhDG41roBVJfNCqvO5MmKP This guy explains everything you need to know about modding skyrim from the very beginning and goes over every step in detail. I followed his procedures to add a truck-load of mods to my skyrim to get it just the way I wanted it and everything thus far has worked quite smoothly. He goes over how to install and setup for the mods and then install some of the more basic mods. All you have to do is take it from there and add as many mods as you want. 

 

Cheers and enjoy! :D

 

Modding skyrim WILL consume your life for a while, so be fore-warned! lol. Depending on the mods you add, it can look and feel like a completely new game/world while staying true to the lore.

These screen shots are from my modded skyrim. They're low res, my apologies (photobucket down-sized them), but should still give you an idea of how good it can look. :)

 

 

Very nice! This is what I can do on my sad integrated graphics

Hey that's not bad for integrated graphics. And nice mods, by the way... ;)

 

Here are some screens I took with better resolution: (Will delete the crappy screens from my last post)

Some of the best mods (IMO) are the high-res (2K) textures, lighting, depth of field and custom character mods. The lighting mods make the biggest difference, IMO. I'm using sharpshooters ENB and all I can say is wow! I had already installed a large number of visual mods, yet it still didn't look quite right. Sharpshooters ENB made all the difference. Made everything come alive and look so much more real.
