I really wanna get my $60 worth out of it.

I play all classes, but find the basic warrior to be the easiest. If you want a challenge, maybe try a mage, and ONLY use magic. I have a magic only character that only uses magic, or staffs and such that he has gotten along the journey. It can be quite the challenge sometimes.

There are also so many different ways to go in the beginning. Try writing a backstory for your character and then playing out quests that are relevant to that. Don't do the main questline at all, instead make your way to Whiterun, have the carriage guy take you to a totally new place, and start there.

So many things to do to make this game different and enjoyable, so I hope you get your money's worth soon. biggrin.gif

I tried that. I made a young Dark Elf woman who was sold into slavery (prostitution) at a young-ish age (for an elf). She clawed her way out of Whiterun (Grey Quarter) and never looked back... namely due to the large bounty and pile of slain guards.... hmm... in retrospect, I should choose my backstories a bit better confused.gif

Paladin would be Shield and Sword with Restoration and Alteration, usually more towards Alteration because it benefits them in combat more.

Ok so I have to say been playing skyrim with ENB and about 30 other mods and it looks amazing!!!!! So awe inspiring specially with the new music. biggrin.gif

One question anyone know of a trick to get GPU monitoring software to work with ENB? Not having a custom fan profile while playing is killing my card.

Looks like Green Grass for ENB to me coupled with Dense Grass then pushed back as far as Skyrimprefs.ini will allow it (2500 if I remember correctly). Looks like he's just picking his locations well so you don't see the cutoff.

Try using the Injector instead of the Wrapper.

It's bloomface, just a picture that pokes fun at the excessive bloom found in Oblivion (and many other games.) I thought I'd post it because someone was talking about the beauty of Oblivion.

But if you knew better, you'd know it's not smile.gif It's a completely different type of grass than what you see in most places, and it completely covers the ground everywhere. Even with that dense grass mod, you still see patches of ground with no grass.

1.1.6 Which grass mod are you using?
Is just a custom grass mod im doing and is a WIP mod so there's no download link and i don't know when will be available.
Please don't ask when i will finish it.

1.1.20 How did you make the grass?

Doesn't look any different to Green Grass for ENB to me. Just looks like the non vibrant version but pushed all the way back on viewing distance, perhaps using the CK to make all grass use this grass type instead of mixing them up.. At first glance I thought it did look different, with it being a little more upright in some shots, but then I noticed that there are clumps that go over like vibrant grass mod too, but well hidden by clever camera work and lighting. It just looks like the non vibrant version which isn't so green as the version I'm using below. They both come up to around the same height too.
 

 

Regardless of whether I am right or wrong, or how Unreal may or may not achieve it, with the dense grass mod with vibrant grass you can get areas which are fully covered with grass easily. Play around with the camera a little and the lighting and you can achieve the same results as Unreal pretty much if you hit the right spot.

 

As for FPS, yeah it will murder it. Grass density is increased 100% and it brings my game to a crawl with ENB enabled, lol.
