Heavily modded skyrim with GTX 980Ti

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have 6GB VRAM and I want skyrim to look as well as possible. To do this I followed guide from here - http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/30936/. I installed all of these mods with nexus mod manager, configured all of them by default, and added a couple of other mods - enchanced cities, open cities etc.

The problem is that distant objects are ugly, lighting is strange - effects change with mouse movement drastically, from black screen to very bright light for example, and the general effect...Well, let me post some screens:








How do I improve it?

All mods I have installed with nexus mod manager:

Imo the lighting issue is some badly calibrated HDR effect
Maybe edit your post by removing the 'unassagined+date', try to separate texture packs from other mods and put all that in a spoiler tag

Hmm, the mods are working, I can see some difference - I am using nexus mod manager and running the game from it (the game is installed with steam). I will reinstall the game, and install all mods all over again with mod oranizer this time.

BTW. Is there some ultimate list of mods to download for 3440x1440 in the exact order, with explanation what to override, or something like that?

Firstly, i don't think open cities skyrim and enhanced cities will work unless someone made a patch. I know there's a patch for JKs cities though.

Secondly, NMM sucks imho compared to MO.

Thirdly, This.

No thats the point of Mod organizer. all you have to do is move things around in the left pain to change what gets overwritten by what. Here's a video series by Gopher, who goes in depth, you should watch so you understand it and how it works a little better. All I recommend is using most of the S.T.E.P core ini tweaks and mods in which skse and enb (even if the graphical improvements are turned off) are used. It give you a good base to make it your game thereafter.

1 Cool mod though I am really liking on my latest playthrough is enhanced landscapes and DynDOLOD

I am in the process of installing all of those mods again, almost finished all from the STEP list, but I still have those half trees in the distance - how do I correct this?

Also, what do I install after STEP mods? (http://wiki.step-project.com/STEP:2.2.9.1)

ELFX and then realvision?



Well, I wanted to see how it looks after ini tweaks and conflicting graphics modes, and it just looks ugly - I havent installed bethesda high res textures yet, I will later, but still...

Try not to overlap stuff like elfx and realvision. You get weird lighting conditions that messes stuff up.

Assuming yoiu're installing everything correctly

1) Download and use dyndolod, it'll fix your ugly lods and add some severely needed detail in the distance without needing to use ugrids higher than 5.
2) Lighting is strange because you're overlapping lighting mods wiht an ENB. Unless the ENB was specifically designed for it, don't use Climates of Tamriel+friends with an ENB. If you do use CoT+friends try using serenity ENB instead.
3) Browse the top files on nexus, find more mods, that's a pretty small list and 1/2 of those texture packs have different styles. When it comes to Skyrim and textures overhauls you want to use as few as possible, use all inclusive ones like skyrim 2k and amidianborn book of silence.
4) Where's your skyrim flora overhaul mod/skeleton/fnis/animation, etc, etc mods?

Just remember this one rule: when picking mods: ask if you already havea mod that does this, if you do DON'T use that mod unless you replace the previous mod. That is the #1 issue that botches skyrim installs.
