Mods are 65% of the reason I play Elder Scrolls games. I always liked how they can make Skyrim, Cyrodiil and Morrowind the greatest places on Earth, erhm - Nirn. Some mods go great with others while others fit like they were made for each other.
I wanted to ask you, which mod combination is your favorite?
Here's mine. I like a lot of quest mods and overhauls, but my best is follower mods. Vilja in Skyrim, INIGO and Arissa the Wandering Rogue. And they go great with a quest mod called Rigmor of Bruma.
Been using Ordinator and SkyUI for my last couple builds and playthroughs. Been enjoying the game immensely :D
Never tried Ordinator before, but I have played a couple of times using most of Ordinator's author mods (Wildcat, aurora, imperious races of skyrim and thunderchild) and I loved the experience. Definitely will play again using them with the perk overhaul. Must be a quite incredible combination.
Our mod list on PS$ is a little limited...but I've enjoyed combining a few select immersive atmosphere mods. Project Hippie (more trees and alchemic plants everywhere), Laterns of Skyrim (lit lanterns on paths), Supreme Storms / Supreme & Volumetric Fog have helped make the game feel more alive.
Just to pitch in, there are some mods which demands absolute necessity.
They change much game mechanics and ensure skyrim remains alive and interesting.
For a rough collection and start guide in this area, i suggest you google "Sands of Time" Skyrim.
There is a good number of gameplay and difficulty mods.
Beautification mods, there are hundreds of them. Pick and choose wisely though, your machines needs enough VRAM to handle em textures.
A solid place to start is with S.T.E.P skyrim (Seriously, google it. It's a damm useful place to start), which offers a balance between beauty and function.
You're welcome :)
