    No I haven't But I do understand that this discussion became more about me "hating" on said mod than the original question, "why in Skyrim?" (ie why in a single player game) and I guess it actually is the correct answer to say "why not". Because mankind has made pretty much anything, that could be considered a why, into a why not. Peanut-butter floor, it's been done. Giant Turd-like slide, yup, exists and paid for. Lawsuits over hot coffee, has been done.

    I just have this weird wish to see someone explain to me why they want it. In complete honesty.

    I personally think that it makes people feel as if they really accomplished something and someone or something gave them a pat on the back and said "Well done boy, well done" in a childlike tone of voice that resembles speaking to small children and pets (in some cases). Which is exactly why I do, actually, detest achievements. Especially the collect 10.000 this, collect 50 that, explore 18 caves, rescue 7 princesses ones. And yet again, I ask myself, but why, why for the love of god, in a single player game. Not a single other person will give a flying fuck!?

    I'm sorry, I'm rambling now. My inner sense of disgust (plz don't take offence) speaks up in cases like this. Once more, the answer, probably, indeed. WHY THE F NOT?

    It's fun. Achieve That doesn't let you share or track other's achievements or anything. It's for your own personal benefit and enjoyment. Not to mention Achieve That adds more than just achievements. You are rewarded for completing achievements with minor boosts to your character. If anything this mod gives you incentive to explore the 'vanilla' aspects of the game. The author also tried to make it "lore friendly" and not just random things to chase down. Completing 100 quests, for example, gives you the "Famous Hero" achievement. Your reputation has increased, so shops charge you less for their goods.

    Let's agree to disagree about the mod in question and drop the discussion about it. Everyone has their own preferences, leave it at that.

    Well that certainly looks impressive.

    If it's half as good as Nehrim it will definitely be worth playing.

    I think the only mod that's managed to make a land look truly different from Skyrim was Moonpath to Elsweyr but that was dark and confined or insanely bright it just felt...off. This place looks incredible though. The magic forest and the screenie before look nearly like Oblivion Cyrodiil with better graphics.

    I think I'll go download and try Nehrim in the meantime. Never heard of these guys before.

    I was so super excited about Dragonborn when it first got announced, but now I can't get excited at all. I'm not sure why, probably either burned out or I can't think of any decent character concepts I'd roll with for the DLC.

    Burnout, I think. I'm in the same spot. The thought of playing Dragonborn doesn't excite me, because...well, I haven't even beaten the main story yet, or Dawnguard. I spend too much time modding and just doing open world stuff.

    LoL. Same here. I've had the game for over a year. Been isimply modding and exploring. I've not yet visited High Hrothgar or climbed the steps cause I want it to be perfect. I've been spending so much of my time doing the side quests. I even have Heartfire and Dawnguard. Have made no progress on either and have also not yet touched the Civil War quests.

    Same Decided I won't make a new character any more . Every time I follow the same path anyway.

    Instead of going for classes, I just accept I'm the "adventurer" and everything is fine:P I also slowed leveling down to a crawl. Set max level to 100 (with SkyRe). So far I'm only level 44 after like 200+ hours with only alchemy capped. I haven't even started the Dawnguard quests yet, done maybe half the daedric ones and Thieves guild:P So still a lot to do. Then again I spend most of the time decorating my Lakeview manor and a little dump in Riften that came with Nernie's thief mod.

    I'm STILL homeless after like 50 hours of playtime because I haven't finished the main quest. NO HOME TIL DOVANDOR.

    i've actually decided to go with a breton mage for dragonborn. been busting my ass the last couple days to max out all the schools of magic, because i don't think i should have been pronounced arch-mage while still a noob caster >.<

    and there are a lot of yummy looking spells to be learned on solsthiem.

    P.S restoration fucking sucks T_T

    Apocalypse spell pack + SkyRe makes restoration really yummy Maybe a bit OP too but then again destruction, alteration and illusion are as well.

    Someone recommend an ENB that uses a brighter color pellet but isn't all that hard on performance that isn't the Sharpshooter ENB.
