The Overclock.net Guide To Modifying TESV: Skyrim - Page 7

post #61 of 901
I can't get any of the merchant purse size increase mods to work. Both "Richer Merchants- With Perks Support" and "Fast Respawns And Richer Merchants" will kill my saves. On both, uninstalling and mucking around in F:\Users\Trevor.pro-PC\AppData\Local\Skyrim\plugins.txt fixes it again. Tried saving in town before applying, saving out of town before applying, neither seems to work. Any idea which mod would be causing an issue?

Oh, also Lifeshield, Ultimate Lush Overhaul made my trees into a light purple blob... Not sure what the deal was, and not too worried about it but I thought you should know.

For the ULO mod, make sure the version of the mod matches the version of Skyrim Floral Overhaul. I had that issue as well.

The merchant purse mods? Yeah, I didn't apply them at the same time. I haven't tried disabling mods till merchant mods worked, as nothing really caught my eye as a culprit, I'd like to narrow down the list instead of just bumbling around for hours.

I will start my first game soon and am unsure of which visual mods listed in the OP slow down one's system the most.I have a Radeon 6970 and 2500K CPU (8 GB RAM) and will play at 1080P resolution. The most important thing to me is frame rate, but I do want to spice up the visuals a bit where possible. I played through Kingdom of Amalur with some nice visual mods and it always ran at around 60fps.

Which Skyrim environment and character mods will give the most impact visually while only modestly slowing down my rig? Display setting advice would help as well (i.e. toning down shadows, etc.). Thanks!

As long as you don't run a performance hungry ENB you should be fine running pretty much all mods after optimisation. With a performance hungry ENB you can expect around 45fps. Rough estimate from running an AMD 965 BE @ 4ghz, 8gb RAM, and a 7950. Your CPU will benefit you if overclocked some (can't see sigrig as I'm on mobile).

Cool. I'm running:

Sapphire ATI HD 6970 @900/1400
Intel i5-2500K CPU @4.4 GHz

Which ENB looks the best for the smallest performance hit? I should be good to go after that.

Alternatively, what do you think of using RCRN and a few enhancers instead of an ENB? Will that save resources?

Hmm, seems I can't install any mods now, I tried installing The Paarthurnax Dilemma (should be obvious why to those who the explanation wouldn't be a spoiler to) and get the same errors. BTW, that mod should be on your list IMHO. Main quest is dumb out of the box.

Unless you need 60FPS all the time, I'd suggest just going buck wild. With all of the more intensive mods in the list and a hungry ENB I get 25FPS minimum. I like having above 40ish FPS in my shooters, but somewhat lower FPS in this game doesn't bug me. My CPU is less powerful and at stock, so you should run the exact same mod setup quite a bit faster anyways.

I'm new to installing mods and would love to learn. I just installed Skyrim and the Official HD texture DLC. Should I have installed Skyrim in Common or Programs Files? Without an Install Manager where do I install mods to manually? Do I install mods to BOSS?

We really need a visual step by step guide to show us, this looks confusing! redface.gif

You may wish to check here:

You should find a load of information on managing your modded game using the Nexus Mod Manager and manually placing your files.

I run a smaller SSD drive and have Steam - Skyrim installed on a larger 4GB RAID array. I also re-direct my user profile ergo my save games files to that location as well. I could manually manage all of my mod files and at times need to do just that to troubleshoot issues but I'd rather just use the Mod Manager and BOSS to maintain them.
