Agreed...but if you can handle unzipping a few files then I find you have better control over content if you install the mods manually. NMM is a great tool, don't get me wrong (and it is by far the easiest method)... installing manually just gives you more options in terms of mix and matching texture packs. I install everything manually and keep a backup of my DATA folder in case I mess something up.
Another thing that is helpful if you decide to go the manual route is a .dds plugin for Photoshop/Gimp... this will allow you to open up texture files and view them prior to installation; which is great when modders fail to provide pictures for every texture in the pack.

It's the ease of activating/deactivating with a simple double click that makes me download everything through the NMM. Built in download manager, lets you know when there are updates to mods you have installed. I dunno, seems the easiest to me.

Ya, like I said, NMM is by far the easiest and most convenient installation method; however, it doesn't give you much control at all over what is installed and what is not, and it overwrites textures depending on mod load order. Once I have a texture installed I have no need to uninstall it because I know I like it... and add-on mods can be disabled with a simple unclick of the .esp file. The only real advantage NMM has for me is the notification of updates... and that takes the fun out of browsing Nexus every day thumb.gif

As a side note, I now have over 4.2GB of mods installed for this beast of a game! biggrin.gif

The tracking section on SN shows updates for you. As soon as a mod on your tracking list updates, it rises to the top of the list. You may already know this.

My texture folder sits at 6.76GB right now.

Try the following:

 

help wonderous "0"

 

If it brings up a list of item IDs for Wonderous Armour write them all down and then type in the following

 

player.additem ITEMID "1"

 

Replace ITEMID with the code for the item, "1" is the amount of items you want (so put a 2 there if you want two instead).

That doesn't bring up anything.

I found it in the console type: help wondrous 0 and it will display the ID

CODE:
xx001000
xx001001
xx001002

unfortunately, you need to know advanced chinese algebra to find the value of x...

or, you can do what I do, and guess until your professor feels bad for you and passes you on the curve!

here are my values: (probably won't work for you)
18001000 >top
18001001 >boots
18001002 >gloves

@karaigamer Actually, the xx in front should be the number that the mod is in order in your plugins. In other words, if you're using NMM, when you look at the "Plugins" tab, if you find the TrissStandalone.esp and on the right side, there's a column labeled "Load Order". The 2 digit value there corresponds to the xx in the ID. That's also why all the ID's that came with the base game started with 00, as the load order value for Skyrim.esm is 00.

 

 

So take the load order and then add the ITEM ID after it and that should be the item ID for it.

Some Skyrim results (Both Systems are same everything else. I just switched motherboards and CPU cooler. Same Windows install. And yeah, these are not the latest Beta drivers from Nvidia, which are Optimized for Skyrim. These are the beta - 285.79 drivers (I think these too are optimized for Skyrim). This was just to compare the two CPU frequencies.):

 

Q9650@3.6GHz, Gigabyte GA-P35 DS3R, 6GB Crucial Ballistix PC 6400@800 5-5-5-15, GTX 260@702/2430

Q9650@4.2GHz, ASUS P5Q-E, 6GB Crucial Ballistix PC 6400@1168 6-5-6-15, GTX 260@702/2430

BTW: Using Skyboost to improve FPS in both tests

 

This is my secondary rig. Not the one I usually play on. This was just to show how my Q9650 scaled Skyrim when it was brought 600MHz up from 3.6GHz to 4.2GHz.

Right. CPU scaling. My cpu usage never exceeds 40% @ 3.7GHz. Explain that.
