    Reinstalling Skyrim - which mods are worth a look?

    I'm currently in the process of reinstalling Skyrim. I've only played it once just after its release and it has undergone quite a number of improvements since then.

    Above all however, the mod community has really thrived.

    So in preparation for my second play-through, I was wondering what Mods might be worth checking out.

    Note: I'm not really looking for fundamental game-changers but rather Mods that improve Quality of Life, Visuals are maybe some of the more clunky mechanics.

    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.
