[Official] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Information and Discussion Thread - Page 847

post #8461 of 12888
Starting to play Skyrim again, and you KNOW I gotta mod the living hell out of it again, haha.

Did anyone ever start implementing ENB with Pluto's Realistic Lighting? RL is amazing, and so is ENB, but whenever I stopped playing, I don't think anyone got them working together. If they can, can anyone provide me the "best" (I know that term is loose) ENB. I really don't feel like bothering looking through the entire Nexus to find one. The only one I remember is Superb's.

Check out this thread, it has some ENB developers and they pretty much have the best advice on all ENB/visual modding.

I just got Skryrim, and started to look at all the mods that are out there and it is just overwhelming.

Does anyone what is the top 10 must have mods? Specifically to improve graphics? I am using the official hi rez textures but I know there are others.

To start, one of the most important mods you should get is an ENB or FXAA config. There are probably a hundred, if not more, configs out there that are constantly updated and added. Finding an config that suits your tastes will take some time, or if you have the patience, make your own! Head over to this thread and look at the various pictures members have posted of different configs, people are generally pretty helpful at recommending ENB configs too. Skyrim "Awesome Pictures" thread. Also, this guide is a little out-of-date, but it should help get you started in the right direction.

For the following mods I highly recommend downloading the Nexus Mod Manager to help manage all of your mods easily. It is fairly straight-forward. All you have to do is choose "Download with manager" when on a mod page on the Nexus and the manager will automatically download it for you, then you simply click on it in the manager and it will install.

Next, you should download the Texture Pack Combiner. Basically this mod combines 3 of more popular HD Texture pack overhauls on the Nexus and uses the textures from each mod that produces to what the author describes as the "best quality possible". You'll have to download each of the 3 texture packs before running the combiner, there are instructions on the page. I highly recommend this mod.

The next 8 mods here are what are in my opinion ESSENTIALS for the graphics in Skyrim. Anything else not listed can probably be found in the STEP guide. Basically it's an extensive list of most of the popular mods for Skyrim. It is a good reference for finding mods, but it isn't necessarily an exhaustive list.

Skyrim Flora Overhaul. Install after Texture Pack Combiner.
WATER
Xenius Character Enhancement (XCE)
Lush Grass
Lush Trees
Open Cities Skyrim. I haven't done much testing with this since the Navmesh bug was fixed, but I've heard that it works pretty well. Note that this will tax your system some.
Bellyaches Animal and Creature Texture Pack
Project Reality - Climates of Tamriel. Note that in order for this mod to work well with ENB, I recommend getting one of the ENB's that the author recommends if you like the pictures on the mod page. This mod has lots of potential I believe.

By no means is this an exhaustive list of the mods I use. In fact I have nearly 250 mods wink.gif The most important thing to remember when modding is to only install small amounts of mods at a time. It will not only help determine the cause of Skyrim crashes faster, but it also will give you an idea if you like a new mod you installed or not. Modding is a very time consuming project if you want to make it that way. Just make sure you have fun doing it. Good luck!

Thanks I am going to go through it this weekend. I am trying not to install too many, just the ones that are really necessary, I just want to make sure I don't fall into trap of I spend more time modding then playing =)

No. In fact, if you go as a werewolf, you get unique dialogue from one of the Dark Brotherhood people.

I don't think so. Pretty sure most or all of the side factions can be completed fully without interfering with the others. Not counting the Civil War of course, you have to take a side there. thumb.gif

Out of curiosity, does anyone here run 60fps solid without ANY dips whatsoever? I'm at 60 most of the times with dips to 59/58. If I limit it to 40fps the same thing happens. With Vsync on and not being able to maintain 60fps it can be stutter-ish.
