    So much more fun than facing a weak dragon that I can absolute obliterate just by spamming fireball at it until my mana runs out.

    Extremely unlikely IMO. I know Beth has hinted at it, but I just don't see it happening.

    But honestly playing TES on an console is like trying to play something like TWEWY on a smartphone. It works, but its much better on the platform it was originally intended for.

    Didn't they do a mods cd for Fallout 3? I think I recall them doing one.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    A shame. I was hoping for maybe one or two more DLCs.

    But I am kinda glad, I can take it easy with my billions of mods. For some reason Dragonborn and getting SKSE to work was a nightmare for me.
    WIP.

    Please help beginner Skyrim questions

    Hello, I will finally be grabbing skyrim soon and had some basic questions. Any help would be much appreciated.

    1. I will be getting skyrim for the pc, i want to have the best experience possible, should i attempt to read some pc settings tweaks like .ini tweaks to improve the gameplay?

    2. Wondering about patches for the pc version, should i play the game out of the box or patch it? will it affect story/ experience? If so which patch, the latest im assuming? and lastly do I have to install all the patches in order or will the latest patch will have all the content of previous patches?

    3. mods, play the game as intended? or grab mods? I Dont want to make the game easy mode or infinite ammo or anything like that.

    4. any other tips to maximize my enjoyment as a beginner would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your time.

    There are more mods that make the game harder, than there are mods which make it easier
    Just browse through skyrimnexus and decide for yourself which you want.

    Knock yourself out
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    1- Only after you install mods. See answer 3.

    2- Yes, get the latest patch. It's mostly new features and bugfixes. Latest patch is 1.9.

    3- Create your character and play through the main story with no mods. Take your time with another questline if you want, but concentrate on the main quest. After you're done, go through lists like Skyrim G.E.M.S. and install whatever pleases you. Start another character and hound the Nexus for more mods.

    And trust me, Vanilla Skyrim is the easy mode. Most mods make it harder.

    4- Don't be afraid of starting over with a new character. Every time you do, you can do different quests in a different way.

    You can of course do what is said above, but for example, I have played about ~800hours and all mods I have are what I would call quality of life mods. So basically I have played all that time nearly entirely vanilla skyrim. I have just made different characters with different skill combinations and different weapons and done different things. I think I still could find places I had never seen up to about 500-600hours played.

    What I'm trying to say, get yourself good experience of unmodded game. The main questline can be done in some hours and, imo, you don't get to see the game as it is in that time. So I'd say do the main questline and some of the random quests you might have encountered. When you feel you have seen enough, then get mods. I sure didnt feel like I had seen enough the first time I completed the main quest line.

    'Elder Kings ' Elder Scrolls mod for crusader kings 2




    http://www.moddb.com/mods/elder-kings

    This mod takes elder scrolls world into crusader kings 2 gameplay. It greatly expands your choices in the game. Has many different races, tons of new traits, attributes, magicians, a huge map. Look into it.

    ---------- Post added 2013-04-26 at 09:58 AM ----------

    Why did you put my post here? This mod has nothing to do with the game skyrim. It is a completely different game.

    Recently got back into Skyrim on my PC after being prompted by some friends. Spent a few nights on NexusMods searching and installing mods to make the game and my characters look as beautiful as possible. It really is like playing a whole new game.

    Pics of my recent character, a strictly Ranged Sneak Archer.

    What bow mod is that Bukka?! Oh holy god I just realized what your name's supposed to be...

    Also could someone find the old nightingale armor retexture? It was the greatest retexturing I've seen in this game and never managed to find it again.

    That's the vanilla bow mod, I recolored the runes red to fit my own tastes.

    And the name, yes, it flies under people's radar most of the time, until the realize the truth, then they wish they hadn't :P 15 years I've used this nick on countless boards, only about a dozen caught on...

    Lol yea I love names like that. Subtle but dirty humor is best humor.

    Also the vanilla form of that bow goes gloriously with the nightingale prime hd retexture. Finally managed to find it after months of searching: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/28899/

    Thanks for the bow link. BTW are you using an ENB for that screenshot or is it just texture packs with RLO? Actually just list your entire armor set cause it's all super sexy lol.

    Going to be starting a new playthrough soon. I'm going to be playing either a Redguard or a Khajiit mage. What do you guys think?

    Edit: Also, should I use light armor as in cloth/robes or something like http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/35094//? perhaps? Might try using Frostall as well and some other immersion addons to add to the experience.

    I wouldnt go for a redguard mage unless you are pure destruction (mostly to go with their lore)

    A Khajiit, what ever you please they can do anything.

    That's what I was thinking. I really love Khajiit. They don't get much attention on the Nexus sadly though
