I have had some really great luck with STEP (Skyrim Total Enhancement Project). You can find it on Skyrimnexus.com (cannot provide link, work blocks nexus). Also the Your best Skyrim "Awesome pictures"? has a lot of great pics of mods and ENB configs. If you are using your Maximus sig rig, you will dominate most of the texture mods. biggrin.gif

Well that's great news. I'm not quite new to the modding scene(Fallout NV) but should I be using NexusMods or The Steam Workshop? Thanks the link.

Nexus is my go to, but there are a few that I like in the Steam Workshop. I usually check both periodically. All the STEP mods are on Nexus unless otherwise stated, like the Skyrim Script Extender.

Mod site, with adult and non adult content without the Nanny Police state of Nexus. Be warned there's some hilarious stuff there too. biggrin.gif

Can you guys recommend mods I should use right off the bat? Like ones that actually improve the vanilla game?

I'll have to check that out when I get home. Work blocks pretty much all sites related to "games"

Are you looking for graphic/texture mods or gameplay?

For textures you could try "2k Textures" or "Enhanced Skyrim" I think it is called. For gameplay, if you are using keyboard/mouse, get SkyUI and you need the Skyrim Script Extender for best use.

There's a lot. Just start with the top files at nexus. That said I really disliked Climates of Tamriel, it made everything pitch dark all the time.

Oh get UFO - Ultimate Follower Overhaul. And then add all the hotties, Cerwiden the healer, Selene from Underworld, the hotties from Girls of Skyrim lol, Akasha of Queen of the Damned. Hmm, I like followers hehe. Don't get too many though they'll kill everything and leave you little to level your main skills on.
