It can be, but a lot of us have been modding Bethesda games in one way or another since Morrowind and FO3 days, so we are pretty knowledgeable and experienced. This thread was started near Skyrim's release, and as the mods grew in number and quality, so did the screenshots which naturally led to endless questions because there are 500+ pages in the thread now. lol
Needless to say, this is how the guide came about. If you're a steam workshop user, I've posted a link maybe 6-10 posts back that include my mod list for the workshop. All compatible and immersion friendly. Happy modding. Your game will never be the same again.
