    You definitely should! It's still my favorite out of the three, the land is much more alien than either the incredibly generic Oblivion or even Skyrim which causes it to have a very unique atmoshpere. Also Morrowinds landscape in itself is very varied going from deserts to wintery forests(Game of the Year Edition with the 2 exp packs).

    So, I have a question, which I hope someone here can help me with.
    I'm planning on buying the new xpac when it gets out for the PC, but I'm at a total loss which mods to get.
    I've been checking this thread and nexus, but I'm having a hard time choosing the most awesome mods.
    Is there some sort of a list or guide or something on this topic, both gameplay and graphic wise?

    Or, what are in your opinion musthave mods?

    I would recommend Companion Valfar. http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/25360/

    Also, Don't mass download them without reading the install instructions for each mod first, some require you to edit .INI files.

    Some mods will attempt to overwrite each other, use common sense to what you allow them to overwrite.

    XCE is an improvement of the vanilla models while Better females are completely new models and used in the screens he was referring to.
    That's why

    That's interesting collection. Probably everything you would ever need in Skyrim. But I just can't install that many mods into Skyrim or else it will break down completely. Currently I'm playing a thief character with only bare minimum necessary mods installed (Unofficial patch and SkyUI, and few others). At least the game almost never crashes now. I wonder if it's meant to be so that with a lot of mods installed the game just happens to crash more often (all the time).

    And why doesn't Skyrim show any error messages while it crashes, would be so useful to know which mod (probably) caused the crash. Maybe on the next single player TES then..

    That would be a pretty difficult thing to implement.

    Actually.... you can create crash logs with a bit of editing in the skyrim.ini file.

    1: Open Skyrim.ini with notepad.
    2: Edit or add the following lines in Skyrim.ini to the specified values.

    [Papyrus]
    fPostLoadUpdateTimeMS=500.0
    bEnableLogging=1
    bEnableTrace=1
    bLoadDebugInformation=1

    3: Close Skyrim.ini and save the changes(It will prompt you to save on exit).
    4: Start TES:Skyrim and reproduce the error.
    5: Go to the same folder you previously found Skyrim.ini in, you will notice that 3-4 logs will have appeared or a folder named " Crashlogs, logs, Papyrus), Can't really remember... Open the log that's called Papyrus.0.log (With notepad) At the bottom of that log file you'll see the last process before the crash occurred.

    So, I just pretty much downloaded every mod from S.T.E.P, along with some skyrim GEMS mods, such as skyre, some economy mods, got a very big monster mod.
    Are there any mods that people think are musthave that I do'nt have yet? Btw, not much into anything follower related.

    Can't wait to get some suggestions!

    So we wind using not one but THREE elder scrolls for the vampires! WOW! Three fucking elder scrolls! This is going to be epic! What do they do? Well, one of them is a cheat since it's the same one we get in the main storyline (which I find fucking hillarious that the orc in the mage's guild will sell back to you for ANY amount of gold... really kills the mystique of the elder scrolls), one of the others is a friggin map, and the other one is the prophecy for the vampires.

    Wow. Did we really need elder scrolls for that? It's a little demeaning considering how in Skyrim's main storyline an elder scroll is used to first send Alduin, THE DRAGON THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BRING ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD, forward in time and then it's used again to look back through the rift caused by the first usage to when Alduin was sent through time. And in Oblivion an elder scroll was used to alter history and break a curse made by a dearic lord.

    But if we ignore that then we have the result of having an god's bow (and not just any god) that uses just a little bit of Serana's blood to blot out the sun for a day. Really? Why did Serana want to kill her father again? Why did ANYONE think ANY of this was a big deal AT ALL? We have a sect of vampires that is one of the oldest IN THE WORLD that got into a fued over this thing, one of them fleeing to alternate plane of existence where she could be snuffed out by eldritch abominations beyond her understanding without any warning. And then there's the snow elf vampire who played a hand in furthering the extinction of his race and waited around for thousands of years for the right kind of vampire to come along to fuel the bow with the power of her blood.

    To blot out the sun for one day.

    With all this build up I was expecting the sun to be obscured permanently or something.


    But despite this the DLC was a blast. It's just the ending is really, REALLY weak.
    I know this is going to sound really silly, but I thought the entire vampire thingy was weak from the moment I heard about the DLC. There is so much else in Skyrim and they had to focus on vampires, something which feels so out of place in a viking-inspired enviroment. Then again, Skyrim is my first Elder Scrolls game so I'm not sure how much relevance vampires have in the Elder Scrolls lore to begin with. The storyline felt kind of weak all in all, haven't played the vampire side yet, but the Dawnguard side was pretty dull, though I absolutely adored the crossbow.

    It was worth purchasing the expansion, but I feel that it could've been much more, even with the vampire theme.

    Also, does anyone know if there's any way to change your race and not break the game? I got so attached to my archer, but I want him to be a Nord now, and he's a Redguard at the moment.

    Vampires are sort of a big deal in the elder scrolls universe, Tomatkchup

    Just a warning though that doing this will lower all of your skills to base value for the new race. You'll keep all your perks though.

    Has anybody given Skyrim Unleashed a try? I suggest giving it a look over on the nexus. It goes hand-in-hand with the DUEL combat mod.

    I'm looking for some tips and strategies around the lower levels. I'm finding it a little difficult to get moving.

    Exactly, thus why I asked for something not gamebreaking.

    You keep your level and your perks. you can just also use the console to get your skill levels back to where they were.
