    Okay I'm a dumbass, but what exactly does SKSE do? Been debating if I want to test drive it for a bit but truthfully most of my mods are aesthetic so I'm not sure I need a script editor.

    It does nothing, if you're not using mods that need it.

    All SKSE does is allow the game to accept more complicated scripts than the unmodified game would allow.

    So yeah, on its own it does nothing to the game. You need mods that actually use it.

    ASIS + Deadly Dragons + Dragon Combat Overhaul + Skyrim Immersive Creatures without applying the .ini file fix = 4 dragons spawning at the same time at Arcwind point at the same time as about 40 draugrs out which 5 were titled "Immortal King Draugr Death Overlord".

    /proceeds to crap pants. I've never had a more epic fight in any game ever. Freaking stupid tough when 4 dragons all fly around in a 200 degree arc to turn around to land on you at once and toss your around like a ragdoll...happened to save my life from fus roh dah'ing draugr death overlords.

    P.S. I hate the dragons that shoot lighting. Shizz is impossible to dodge.

    Also, I keep getting random freeze ups when the game is loading after I've died. It doesn't quite crash to desktop and it isn't even a real "freeze" per se. The loading screen and music just keeps going as per norm but doesn't ever actually load the game up.

    They do it to be seen cool and special.. it's kinda like those people who get Japanese or Chinese letters tattooed on them even though they aren't from Asia.

    I haven't played Skyrim for a while and probably won't pick it up again before all DLCs are out but when I'll start another play through, I really don't want to be a nord again. It's just hard to pick anything else. I don't want to play as a beast or orc. Loved imperials in Oblivion but in Skyrim their racials are completely useless, even with SkyRe, I guess bretons are ok'ish, maybe high elves too. But I guess I have to pick between a breton and a dark elf.

    Anyone tried that Tropical Mod?

    It looks amazing, but I hate seeing my GPU at 90-99% load, is there anyway to reduce this without putting the graphic settings on low? I normally get 60 FPS as well (on Ultra with other mods installed, like sexy whiterun and other graphical updates), but with this mod it can go as low as 15-20 and feel very choppy.

    You can reduce the Ugrid load and render distance with a few ini tweaks, that'll give you anything from 10-30 fps depending on how much you turn it down. Be warned though, tweaking the Ugrids WILL corrupt your save file and any change to the Ugrid after that point will make your save unplayable until certain measures are taken.

    -Ugrid tweak-
    1: Locate and open "Skyrim.ini".
    2: Paste the following text/code under [General] and sLanguage.
    Code:
    Ugrids=5 
    uExterior=36
    3: Save the change and set Skyrim.ini to read-only in properties.

    -Object render distance tweak-
    1: Locate and open" SkyrimPrefs.ini"
    2: Change the following values to something lower/what works for you.
    Code:
    fGrassStartFadeDistance=7000.0000
    fGrassMaxStartFadeDistance=7000.0000
    3: Save the change and start skyrim.


    Sometimes it's wise to sacrifice some heavy visual elements, such as shadow quality. Also, DoF is a killer so you might wanna rid that if your ENB has a DoF effect.


    -How to fix uGrid corruption-
    What you'll need to do if your save becomes corrupted is to set the uGrid and uExterior back to the value you first tweaked to, start the game and load your save. While in-game, tab out and change the uGrid/uExterior values in skyrim.ini to what you desire, save the ini and then save your game. Restart Skyrim and it's fixed.

    im playing as a high elf now. its really annoying since i cant join arcano or the thalmor. so im playing it as i do what i want, with a huge preference to the high elf agenda, but if my interests go against it, i go with my interests.

    but the game does kinda force u to be a nord. i mean u get to be a dragon powered viking in viking world?

    im thinking if i make a 3rd, it will be agorian, orc, kitty, or redguard. who ever i pick will be an assassin type since i did nord warrior and now working on elf mage

    Tried it. Birds flying into the ground and huge patches of things that just seemed...off outside Whiterun got me to change back. Its a mod worth trying but not keeping imho.

    Giant toes.

    Hanging Moss + Bear Claws + Giant's Toe
    Blue Butterfly Wing + Blue Mountain Flower + Giant's Toe

    Or boar tusks if you have Dragonborn.

    Alchemy was always the first skill I got to 100, the fastest way was always just not using fast travel, picking up all the plants on my way and just spamming random potions. This also made me really rich, especially when coupled with 50 speech and the perk so I could sell the potions to any vendor.

    Yes it does. It just doesn't feel right otherwise. But then again Ive always joined stormcloaks and never used magic much. A dark elf character would fit almost as well now that the Dragonborn DLC is out though. Playing as a rival or trying to prove you're better than the nords or outdo them. For the nords, a dark elf dragonborn must also feel like a slap in the face as they always see them as inferior and take bride in Tiber Septim being a nord and a dragonborn.

    I had problems leveling alchemy too for a long time. Then I read about a good way to level it just nicely. First of all remember those extremely high level combinations that were said above. The more potion price is the more alchemy xp you get from making it. So if you don't have materials to make the super expensive stuff just make invisibility, slow, paralyze and damage magic regeneration. You can practically spam those very often. Their cost is also so high that you can sell some of them and buy all the materials from alchemist. Then just craft whatever you want.

    Of course you need to get the perks that increase potion quality as soon as possible. Quality is higher = Price is higher = Higher xp gained.

    Also regen health, magicka and stamina potions are very expensive.

    One thing I honestly and truly hope that the next Elder Scrolls game has is NO LOADING SCREENS. Just continuous play with no interruptions and walking between world spaces without pause. I want to be able to open the door to my house and step inside and then step right back out. Why? Because I can. And then houses could have functional windows. Windows you can see outside through. You know, because that's what they're for!

    Also the ability to go anywhere, do anything, kill anyone, and have realistic consequences and reactions form the world and its people. Of course.
