    But it depends on a lot of factors but generally it's those mods that cause problems and when they do it's often because of incompatibility.
    the only thing that conflicts its the interiors .esp

    try installing them in this order, with NMM:

    • Project Reality - Climates Of Tamriel V3.1 - This setup you can if you prefer get a night version i use default due to the ENB im using, but nights4 looks great without ENB
    • Realistic Sun for Climates of Tamriel and Vanilla by prod80 (optional, but recommended)
    • Climates Of Tamriel - Weather Patch - Fog Rain Overcast by prod80 (optional, but recommended)
    • Climates of Tamriel - Weather Patch - Snow by Saerileth
    • Realistic Lighting Overhaul 4.0.7C by The Realistic Lighting Team - select custom on first window then This Setup DONT download Realistic Lighting Weathers RC3 version this is really not compatible with COT as it changes the weather files



    Then run BOSS, if you have it, to update the masterlist

    Wish I could try it but already have ELFX+ real clouds+ a custom ENB mix, took me 2 days to set it up. I would literally commit suicide if I had to redo anything from what it currently is, lol. But might be useful for other people with similar problems so thanks.

    yeah, getting stuff to work with ENB can be a PITA sometimes.

    i never manage to get the above with Kountervibe ENB, it made the game way to bright even changing the settings, had to try realvision and im really happy

    I want to play Skyrim and could use some advice on making a death knight class to play. Not so much WoW based but more like D&D or Everquest type.

    just assign it to a spell ring and then assign it to a hotkey in your favourites.

    but as you mentioned this is technically a cheating mod as you can basically automate all spells and even make combos, if you play as Mage caster build this is destroy your fun imho, but its somewhat fun for melee chars as long as you dont automate everything.
    gamespots top five skyrim mods of the week did a video on it and at the end they binded most if not all the games spells at once and it looked pretty nuts

    I never play with pure ENB's I always mix the parts I like from different ENB's and tweak the stuff that I'm not satisfied with. Using Somber ENB, Realvision, Project ENB and a custom Bloom and sunglare. Working on mountain and rock textures at the moment since my bloom makes them WAY to bright and defined during the day, but just right during dusk,dawn and night. So hard to make it look "perfect" all the time and not just during a specific time of day.

    But I'm getting there. xD

    Finally done with Skyrim + Dawnguard/Dragonborn DLC after 505 hours of gameplay (yeah its pretty long, I took my time alright).
    Have to say pretty awesome game, beautiful graphics, well thought out storyline & several quests/npcs really do stir your emotions.

    But why does the game have to have so much hair pulling bugs?
    If it wasn't for console commands I would have to save at almost every step or worst restart my game but even so some bugs still went through, I didn't get my Oblivion Walker achievement even after obtaining 15 Daedric artifacts

    Was that with or without some of the patches you can add to the game?


    Also, has anyone tried a playthrough on Legendary difficulty? Seemed like any enemy that dealt any sort of elemental/poison damage would drop you in a heartbeat if they got close enough. Resistance potions seemed to have a negligible effect =/ Granted, I am also playing a dual wielding, sneaky type character which is hard enough early on. It's also entirely possible that I am terrible at this game since I haven't played it in what seems like forever.

    As a rule, I don't play Bethesda games on hard, they don't balance too well.

    New to Skyrim Mods, need advice/help

    I played Skyrim for a while when it was released but haven't really touched it since and I experienced very little of the story. With TESO on the horizon and recently watching the new Hobbit movie, I have a new kindled desire to pick up this game once more and actually beat it before April.

    I've never used mods before, and I only have the original Skyrim (not the dragonborn or dawnguard or any other expansion they have).

    I get a cluster fuck of results when I search for good mods on google and I feel a bit overwhelmed. Could any of you recommend 10-15 basic mods that you feel are must-haves? Things I'm looking for is realism/graphics, a better user interface, more unique items/people/places/quests, a broader range of game-play music (I still like the celtic/norsk style of music that fits the theme of the game), optimizations that help smooth out animations, voice acting, and enable the game to run with a little less glitches. I literally have no starting point or experience so any tips would be awesome, thanks!

    Any tips on how to actually install them would be sweet also, although I can probably youtube that stuff when the time comes.

    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/30450 - Realistic Lightning Overhaul ( if you set the lightning to be almost pitch black inside caves/buildings and at night torches and the likes actually gains a real use.)

    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/8655 - Static mesh improvement
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/60 - Enhanced Blood Textures
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/607 - Real HD textures if you have the PC to support the vram increase.
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/836 - Realistic smoke and embers mod
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/17802 - Climate Overhaul
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/30936 - RealVision ENB ( what enb to use is a bit more personal but i think this one goes well with the other mods )
    www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3863 - SkyUI, overhauls the UI system to fit keyboard play better.

    There's also a few gameplay changing mods i can recommend but dunno if your interested in that but i would start with these. Most of them can be installed with the mod manager with the exception of the ENB package.

    Awesome links! Many thanks Zealo. I use a i5-3750k at stock speeds, and a 670 factory overclocked with 8gb of 1600mhz ram. I'm going to assume thats plenty for these mods @1080p

    First thing you want to do is get Dawnguard AT LEAST if you can get both so you can get all the mods Sky RE requires Dragonborn for all the recent updates/changes

    - - - Updated - - -

    Forgot to mention this also if you have the HD texture packs installed from Bethesda get rid of them they cause lagg that shouldnt be there lagg as in fps drops that are random as hell

    - Realistic Lighting Overhaul or Enhanced Lights and FX. My personal favorite is Enhanced Lights and FX
    - I recommend Realistic Water Two
    - Static Mesh Improvement mod is amazing
    - Enhanced Blood textures or Crimson tide, i prefer enhanced blood
    - Skyrim 2k is very good overall, but it doesn't cover all
    - Realistic Smoke and Embers is quite alright
    - I don't recommend using Climates of Tamriel
    - Realvision enb is very overrated, there are much better enb's out there. Kinematic enb, Kountervibe enb, Project enb, Saraan Suum ENB to mention a few. Kinematic enb is my personal favorite, it's just a step over all other enb's when it comes to effects and realism.
    - SkyUI is awesome, but you'll need SKSE as well.

    ALso, all unofficial patches are must-haves

    The first time I ever played through it was on master and I didn't realize until the end of the game. I thought it was rather easy. It's been bloody fun.

    So I have gotten re-addicted to Skyrim over the past month and have been delving down the twisting nethers of modding (something I had not looked into until recently), and that's turned Skyrim into a completely new game.

    Anyways, I'm running into the same issue now that I did 2 years ago when last I played it...and that is the infamous "Power Creep". This happened about the same level as before, and its usually by this point that my Sneak is maxed, I have 2 devastating offense trees (3 in my current case), and have Enchanting/Smithing at 100. What are some ways that the community has dealt with becoming "too badass"? I love the hell out of the game, but when I can charge through a cave hacking away with a sword and never have to worry about chugging potions...the excitement lessens.
