Top 10 Skyrim Mods
Here are my personal top 10 favorite skryim mods.
1. Skysight Simply Bigger trees
My all time favorite mod. Even if you just play “Vanilla Skyrim” This is most simple mod that will make the biggest Change to your game. Making the small trees into fantastic Large forests. You go from traveling through sparse green area’s to traversing 100 year old forests. It brings back that sense of wonder and exploration while making the Skyrim world feel like the ancient place it should have been.
3. FrostFall / Campire
Frostfall uses a sophisticated system to track your location, weather, time of day, worn clothing, and more, to determine your current condition, in a seamless and immersive way. Combined with Campfire, it also features a large variety of craftable camping equipment, including craftable torches.
SKYUI (Skyrim User interface) is the most popular skyrim mod on the nexus for a good reason. It completely revitalizes skyrims interface. making it pc mouse friendlier. It also works great for controller users too adding a new favorites menu allowing you to group equipment and hot key a whole armor set and weapons to a single key. It also has Convenient inventory management with a feature-rich panel that supports full-text search, sorting and extended data columns.
5. Immersive Weapons
If you’re seeking to enhance your Skyrim with a greater selection of weapons without breaking from natural feel of the game, this mod is for you. It adds many new custom weapons that have been seamlessly integrated into the world. Most are lore friendly and with some weapons included from older games like Morrowind.
7. IHUD (Immersive Hud)
Immersive Hud is another must have mod. Its truly amazing the different experience you have when playing a game with its hud removed. You begin to focus on the in game elements such as road signs and shop names rather than relying on a compass on the heads up display. IHUD takes this further by displaying the hud when you need it ie. combat and removing it when you don’t (exploring etc).
It’s also completely customisable through the in game mod menu.
8. Enhanced Camera
Skyrim Enhanced Camera is a mod that really should have existed in the original game. It allows you to look down and see your own body. It also allows for a number of actions to be done in first person. Activity such as crafting, smiting and even horse riding can now be done in first person view.
9. Alternative Start
If you’ve replayed skyrim the number of times i have. You’ll know how tedious the opening scene is to play through. This mod not only allows you to skip the opening scene but also start in a number of locations with a number of different professions and classes. Want to play as a shipwrecked Pirate? DONE! or maybe a wealthy housescarl DONE! it truly is a must have mod.
10. Elianora House Mods
Some of the most fun things to do in Skyrim is to drag all those treasures and loot back to your home. Elianora is the queen of skyrim realestate and player homes. She creates wonderful homes for every type of player. From underwater Argonian dens to tall witches towers. Everyone of her creations is a labor of love and detail. her concepts of house “clutter” are truly works of art.
