The northern regions of Skyrim are filled with vast ice formations. Real Glaciers makes them an unmissable attraction, recolouring them from a frosted window effect to a much more realistic ice finish, complete with crack lines and a glassy reflective surface.
Personally, I prefer using the Nexus Mod Manager, as it is easier to install/uninstall mods whenever you wish. I then use that alongside BOSS for correcting your load order.
If you’d rather live a more humble existence out in the beauty of Skyrim’s forests, this Tree House mod is tailor made for you. It’s not made up of cells, meaning you don’t need to load to get inside, so you can still admire those beautiful, serene vistas from the windows. And thanks to its height, it’s a great vantage platform for hunters, too.
The true Dragonborn does not fast-travel between locations, but walks to their destination on foot. When night falls, they set up camp using this fantastic camping kit mod. Craft a tent at a tanning rack and then set it up out on the road. It provides shelter from the elements and enemies, and even has a ‘DarkFire’ which gives off heat but not light to prevent bandits seeking you out in the dark.
Skyrim is a very solid PC game, but there are telltale signs that the game wasn’t solely designed to be played on a computer. The user interface is the leading clue wholly built to be navigated with a controller. SkyUI completely rebuilds the HUD and interface of Skyrim, making it much more friendly for keyboard and mouse users.
A massive mod comprised of numerous Workshop files, Static Mesh Improvement works absolute wonders in removing all those horrible niggles from the objects of the world. Edges have their angles worked away so stones are finally smooth and bowls made round. Textures now run smoothly and those unsightly seams when two textures meet are eradicated. The extra polygons will impact performance slightly, but this really should be at the top of your priorities when it comes to making Skyrim beautiful.
Lanterns of Skyrim adds a variety of new lamps to the world in a selection of logical places. The new light sources certainly help navigation in the dark, but it’s the feeling of life that they add that’s the true value. Skyrim feels lived in, populated, and functioning, all thanks to a few extra candles.
Has someone been bleeding around here, or did they just drop a jar of jam? That’s frequently the question posed by Skyrim’s forensic investigators when visiting crime scenes because the default blood textures appear more like globs of strawberry puree than human juice. Enhanced blood does away with splats and replaces them with high-resolution spatter patterns with just the right viscosity.
Thanks, I just might. That is if I ever find the time to play this game again. Or I might just wait until Skywind is out. Hmmm decisions, decisions.
I've tried one heckalot of follower mods, and ditched them all for various reasons conversely, I won't play Skyrim without Inigo.
