Best Skyrim Mods

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

I just purchased Skyrim: LE on Steam and I'm wanting to know some good mods for it.

I have a GTX 680 4GB

Currently have:

Textures
2K-4K Texture Mod
Flora Overhaul
Enhanced Night
Enhanced Lights

Mods/Plugins
Falskaar


I dont care if it's mod or textures, just give me some good ones.

Also please link or tell me if it's on Steam or Nexus.

Keep an eye on Skywind.

For other mods, this is a good place to start
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/top//?

It's been awhile since I played, but the best mods were on the nexus, not on steam.

I had at least 100 mods, but uninstalled Skyrim awhile back. Let me do some digging and get back to ya.

Go for all of these:

Though RCRN might conflict with your Enhanced Night and Light mod. And I never tried The Dance of Death.

OK, I'm having a hard time finding my old mods folder. As far as I know, there aren't any epic modpacks/miraculous overhauls like FCOM+Morroblivion in TES IV (which you should try, if you haven't already).

I can remember a few gameplay, vanilla friendly mods...

All the "immersive" mods (armor, creatures, etc.)
At least one more mod that added more creatures.
Midas magic.
SkyUI
Enhanced followers
Some enhanced weather mod
Frostfall (love that one)
Some war/siege mod.
Enhanced AI
Glowing Ore Veins
Better World Map
Some dragon combat mod (I recommend you install one of these later on, as they aren't that easy in vanilla when you first start off)
I had tytanis at one point, don't know what ever happened to that modpack though.
Sounds of Skyrim/enhanced thunder

I never liked any the ENB Shader mods, but besides that, grab as many texture/weather/aurora/animation/model mods as you can. They don't ruin the original experience of the game, they just enhance it.

Spending some time looking through the Nexus and Steam is one of the best ways to find mods.

P.S. Skyrim Online was merged/in heavy development last time I played, though I don't know how far they've come along.

Just use all these: http://www.gnd-tech.com/content/857-Essential-Skyrim-Mods


They're all compatible with each other and stable.

RCRN will likely override your night sky mod, but it's better anyway.

Dance of Death is good and can be used a long with all the mods in the guide.

Hmmm, well let's see.

The unofficial patches fix a lot of bugs.
Buildable chests
SkyUI
Sounds of Skyrim series
The Places of Skyrim mods
Unique Uniques
Immersive Armors pack (adds various well done lore friendly armors)
Unlimited Bookshelves
Chesko's Wearable lanterns
Chesko's lore based loading screens
Lanterns of Skyrim (all in one)
Prometheus' Beast Skeletons
Paarthurnax fix (not sure if you know the ending already, but if you don't, just trust me.. it's nice to have this choice)
Any mod that adds arrow smithing (smithing extended or arrowsmith)
Dance Of Death killmove mod
Light Armor Hoods pack
Dragonbone weapons complete
Psychosteve's Dragonpriest masks
aMidianborn's Book Of Silence adds a lot of quality retextures of the vanilla armors
One of my favorites, the real Fus Ro Dah (adds the fus ro dah from the Skyrim trailer. There's two versions, one is with the chant and the other without).

I could go on for a while listing mods tongue.gif There's a lot of really good ones out there. Just browse through the Steam Workshop's best rated of all time as well as the top files at the Skyrim Nexus and pick out what fits you. I personally won't use a mod unless it's lore friendly. Be sure to check if there's compatibility issues with certain mods (any mod that uses the same area or that edit similar things are usually incompatible, most new weapons and armors don't have many compatibility issues).

I think there's issues with having too many mods due to the memory limits of Skyrim, just so you know. Although, I have around 130 different mods and I haven't run into any problems.
