Tobes Highres Textures
"This is a small re-texturing project mainly for minor and common textures of clutter and furniture. While everyone else seem to focus on enhancing the big and obvious things (And females)(And deleting their clothes), I thought I would do my part and get working with the little things instead. These textures are just as horribly down-scaled, and I'm gettin tired of facepalming everytime I see it inside houses and caves." Mod an quote by Mr Bravo aka Tobe

Realistic Wolves
"The 2048x2048 was upscaled using the original wolf textures. I added details and markings at 2048x2048 and then downscaled to make the 1024x1024 texture. It is not truly high definition since I did not redraw the entire wolf skin, but the changes I made were done first on the larger texture. Knowing this, it is your choice in deciding which one you want to use." Mod and quote by Bellyache

Kohdi Retextures Part 3 - Akaviri Katana by Kohdi
"My definite favorite set of gear in Skyrim is that of the Blades, for three reasons. It reminds me of Oblivion, it makes the exact changes to the Oblivion gear that I would have done (if I could model), and it just looks plain cool. This stuff is the real deal, made by the first-era Akaviri dragonslayers themselves. As I've said before, I believe the armor texture is about as good as it gets, but the texture of the katana, well, not so much. In theory the design is good, but even just looking at it in first person view makes me subconsciously reach for my glasses. It's blurry, shiny in the wrong places, and doesn't have much interesting detail. Hopefully with this mod I changed that."

This mod adds the possibility of encountering Bandits, Vampires, Thalmor, Necromancer, Atronach, Werewolf, Mammuth, Dragonpriest, Dremora, Boss and Giant Monsters and other, with a small chance of them meet together or 2 factions in one time: this creating faction battles and make the game more difficult.

LOTR - Narsil and Anduril by Isilmeriel
This is my first mod for Skyrim, containing Narsil and Anduril. They can currently be purchased at Eorlund (the skyforge smith in Whiterun). I left more than one of each in case you wish to mount some on your wall or dual wield...

LOTR - Glamdring by Isilmeriel
This addon introduces the sword Glamdring from Lord of the Rings, wielded by Gandalf. A weathered version of the sword can either be crafted under the steel section or purchased from Eorlund at the skyforge in Whiterun. The sword can be improved at the grinding wheel or visually upgraded (with minor stat increase, but discards any previous improvements) at the forge. I recommend the regular version but it can be further upgraded to a chrome/polished version at the forge if you like shinier weapons.

High Quality LODs by Ethatron
This is a replacer for all of the LOD files (excl. the 3D-Map). If you want the complete set you have to install the "High Quality 3D Map" as well. Texture resolution has been doubled and mesh resolution increased 2-20 fold, this depends on the surface curvature. Just drop the files into your data folder.

Hvergelmirs Armor Retexture - HAR by Hvergelmir
Hvergelmir's Armor Retexture is a frequently updated retexture project that aims to eventually have every piece of armor in the game updated with an up scaled (x2) hand painted texture that stay true to the lore and style of vanilla Skyrim. Each texture will have increased detail and with new high detailed normal maps (and environment maps) each armor piece will look really sharp and crisp.


Last list update 1/25/12

Mods have slowed down quite a bit. Just keep checking back on your favorite ones for updates and for list updates

First time making a list. I know there are alot of grammatical errors, bare with me. Also I will be updating the list with more mods I come across. Please post some more mods that you are using and such so we can keep the list going. Incase some of you rather not dig through the nexus you can come here =) . Ill most likely be uploading some screen shots but right now Im gonna go play some skyrim.

all files go into steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data/
Most mods are textures so its steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data/ textures/ but i've noticed most mods already have the textures folder so it's just drag and drop.

what folder do i drop in the skyrim data... data>>textures>>landscape (which then has a roads folder in it with all the other textures)... i'm worried im gonna drop the wrong folder or sub folder in and its not gonna work lol

Does the large address aware application have to be running whilst you play the game? Or can you close it after you click save?

Close it after you click and save. After every official patch launch it again, click, save, close and done.

That you did, and yes it should look like that. so you probably dragged the data folder into the data folder.
