    I think the only "effeminate vampires" I seen now was from Twilight... cupcakes, salads, shining under the sun light... imo they are fairys.

    Anyone have an idea for a mod that can fix this and is compatible with SkyRE?
    you using skyrim uncapper? it's compatible, suggested by the author of skyre and highly configurable

    just get one of the other enhance weapon spells and use it over it. i never use those so not sure if it's a bug, intended, or what. you can open up skyre in the CK and see if a flag is missing or if the duration is something really high

    Another problem. I'm doing the civil war questline now, and after turning in the first step of liberating the rift(where you blackmail the steward), Legate Rikke gives me gold but doesn't give me the next quest, to capture Fort Greenwall. I don't want to have to skip this questline, but messing around with the console has yielded me no other options. Google told me you have to go ask Tullius how the war is going but that didn't do anything, neither did using the cooking spit in the camp and knocking out Rikke, then talking to her again. I've never encountered this problem before on any other character. Any ideas?

    Could it be a level issue? You might need to advance your character level to continue the plot (just a guess )

    I encountered the same problem on both the factions, Stormcloaks and the Empire. It's a bug which can happen occasionally when doing the quests and is really annoying. Thing that worked for me is fast-travel then wait for 24h, or reloading the save. Might take a few times, could also be bugged out because there's a dragon bugging nearby.

    Questlines have a required level to be started, not to progress(I think). And I'm currently lv 40 on this character. Thanks for trying, though.

    Didn't try waiting 24h but since I knocked her out and she still didn't have the option, that shouldn't fix it. But this dragon bugging is probably the reason. I say this because as I was getting close to the camp, The dragon fight music started playing. Though I was fighting bears. When the last bear died there was still one more enemy dot, but it vanished and then the music stopped. Guess that's our dragon. But what's the bug and how to fix it?
    I can still simply reload the save from before I started the blackmail quest.

    That list of mods to make it look better is nice, and considering most are texture/mesh improvements I could merge the whole thing into a single .esp + files.

    My problem is that the only real difference is made by the ENBseries filter, and that always - without fail - caused such a large performance drop that it simply wasn't feasible to continue running it. I've tried running it with SSAO disabled, and it reduces performance hit at the expense of... well... shiny graphics, but the loading times are still for some unexplainable reason through the roof (though still much lower than with full on SSAO). It's absolutely amazing for screenshots that make your jaw drop, it really is astounding what some texture-work and some filters can do to an otherwise unremarkable engine, but for playing the game it's useless... at least for anything other than an obscenely overpowered PC.

    Ah well, I only wanted to use it to make the ground look better, but I'll settle for the other ones in that list. It's actually quite nice to not have 240p(-seeming) textures on giant terrain objects like mountains and glaciers.

    setstage CWMission07 200
    (completes the turn in part of the quest from the steward blackmail chain, the one you turn in before you get the fort greenwall starter quest)

    if it's already done, just use
    setstage CWFortSiegeFort 10
    (starts the fort greenwall quests, this is what legate rikke is supposed to give you)

    your load order is fucked up then. when it does that, it's conflicting. i have 81 addons right now and any CTD means something is wrong.
    i'm not going to explain how to deal with it because people have been writing how-tos for this since oblivion came out. use BOSS (better oblivion sorting software, yes, it's for skyrim) to automatically sort your shit and it will also tell you if you got conflicting addons, will tell you to remove this, delete that esp, etc

    if that isn't the problem, you have something left over from another mod that shouldn't be there, clean out your DATA folder

    if that isn't it, you are missing something a mod needs, may just need to be checked/ticked in the mod manager

    i'd use nexus mod manager, i'd only download shit from skyrim nexus (steam is fine, but a LOT of steam addons are fakes and copies, aren't supported because of that, or modified by people who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground)

    with the right tools (boss, nmm, proper install/uninstall procedurs) you won't have problems

    i dont know what asis is. I have a lot of addons from steam though mixed with nexus mods, maybe i will just uninstall all the steam mods and uninstall the game and try again with just nexus mods. Im sad -- i had so many mods for followers and game enhancements now i have to find them all =P

    you can't just disable UFO and it's working fine, updated yesterday and i've been using it the whole time. you need the dawnguard patch with it too

    make sure skyrim is using the 1.8 patch (newest one), updates via steam automatically when steam is online

    here is what i'd do, i'd start a 100% fresh clean game. i'm 99.9% sure you have a dirty save that's causing issues that you may not even be noticing, but you got a lot of old outdated mods, mods that change the same shit, etc. if you can possibly do without a current save, i'd just start fresh and save myself a headache

    just delete all your mods and never use the workshop again. it will just be easier and more convenient to go to the skyrim nexus for all your mods and if it isn't there, 10 replacements are. it's just managed better, regulated better and more active and the mod manager makes most installs fool proof

    delete everything from your skyrim game folder (where data, tesv.exe, etc is) except the DATA folder, ARCHIVE.EXE, CREATIONKIT.EXE (if you have it, if not, don't worry about it), if you are using ENB keep the d3d9.dll and any of the ENBbloom, effects, etc files, skyrimlauncher. exe and tesv.exe. delete the rest of it, it's important you'll get it back in a minute automatically.

    go into that data folder folder you kept and delete everything except the skyrim - whatever .bsa (sounds, shaders, textures, etc) and the update.esm/bsa and dawnguard.esm/bsa. delete the other shit, you just want the official skyrim/update/dawnguard bsa and esm

    now, your folder should be clean as fuck. all those other folders inside data and inside skyrim EXCEPT FOR DATA should be gone.

    open steam, go to all games, right click skyrim, properties, local files, verify integrity of game cache and it will check what files you need that are missing, automatically download and install them and you're back to square one.

    then, go to the skyrim nexus, get the mod manager (nexus mod manager or NMM, free, download and install) and find what you want to install

    read the page and the comments. if people say it's dead, don't fuck with it. if it hasn't been updated since august, it's probably dead unless it's an armor file or something, they require fewer updates. just make sure what you're getting is worth getting

    read the descriptions, read what it is and isn't compatible with (if they have it)

    i WOULD NOT use alternate start, it causes a default script to forever look for the trigger that you skip when you use this mod and it does cause issues in the background. i only got papyrus lag spikes from hell (a stutter here and there) and while that's normal, this was a bad one and it would CTD occasionally as well. just start the old fashioned way and save yourself the trouble. i recently quit using it too.

    use the "top files" and also sort through mods by category and sort each category by ENDORSEMENTS to find the good shit. when shit is down around 100 or fewer endorsements, it's something VERY specific that you can do without unless you're looking for it in the first place, or it's just not a popular mod (usually don't find much at that point worth having unless it's a day old)

    make sure each mod you download isn't fucking with another mod you have/want and that it has everything it needs to work

    you'll probably need SKSE (google and download from their page and install instructions are in the readme), MIGHT need scriptdragon (i don't) and you should start off fresh in teh right direction.

    it shouldn't take but 10 mins to download all the files you deleted, most of them were text files and aren't that big. you kept the big shit

    now, when you get a mod that uses a script, that script doesn't disappear and stop running usually unless you stop the quest associated with it (quest as in how it talks to the game, how you put it into the game when you make the mod, not a normal quest IN the game, if it's relevant the mod will tell you how to stop it)

    here is my mod list, it's a lot of shit and it all plays well together and it's a great start at the very least.

    Ulfric is awesome. You're mucking about. And the Empire's racist and fascist too. The Stormcloaks aren't the latter, though. They're just a nationalistic monarchy. The Empire wants to replace every other culture with their own.
