My Skyrim Mods List Banner

Intro

A long time ago I did a list of mods that I use while playing Skyrim as a sort of recomendation of good mods. However that list quickly became outdated so when I pulled it down with the intention of making a new, up-to-date and improved version. Due to a suggestion of Ravanel I decided to post it in parts instead of just releasing one gigantic list at once. This will break the work in smaller chunks (making it  easier for me) and allow me to gather some feedback about how to make the list as we go. Eventually I will copy the info in all the posts and make a page out of it that will be linked in the upper menu.

Now here is how it works: I will try be providing the mod name, a link to where you can download it on the Nexus and Steam Workshop (whenever possible) or some other site. So you can pick your own poison of where to download it. Screenshots whenever possible too and obviously a description of the mod. All the screenshots will be taken by me. So if they suck that is purely my fault. I suggest to look at the ones provided at the author page as they are usually ten times better at least. :p

Also, keep in mind this is not meant to be a "The Best Mods of Skyrim" list as much as a completely biased, personal list of mods I'd recommend to anyone who wants to make Skyrim more interesting. Another thing to keep in mind is that I am not a strict lore purist. I will use any mod that I feel fits enough with Skyrim or just amuses me. That means that a mod that adds Lord of the Rings weapons would work for me as they fit well enough. One that adds stuff from Legend of Zelda, not so much. So if that bothers you feel free to ignore my choices.

The Utilities

To begin with we'll won't be dealing exactly with mods but with some 3rd party software that makes playing a modded Skyrim easier. Next time it will be some real mods though!

Fus Mod Dah!

Since other people in the blogosphere have been playing Skyrim recently it seemed like it was a good idea of make a page with the mods I use. This way if anyone asks for which mod are good or what mods I use I can just point to it. It should be a lot more practical for both sides. Right now it is pretty raw, pretty much a draft still. I intent to improve on it in time by adding some screenshots/thumbnails/something-like-that and a better table of contents to make navigation easier. Eventually I intent to add pages for other games mods too like Oblivion and Morrowind. The first because I have yet to finish the main storyline on it and the second because Rebecca of a.Girl.IRL has been really tempting me to play it again. I will get to those as soon as I go back to playing them. Whenever that may be. *clears throat* Anyway, for now here is my Skyrim list of mods!

In related news I've been playing Dawnguard lately and dabbling in the Creation Kit. So if it seems like I dropped of the internet, has been slower than usual or oblivious to any big news that is why. I am pretty much done with Dawnguard now on the vampire hunter side of things but still need to remake my vampire character to try the vampire side of the story. The vampire however will have to wait until I make her a secret lair with all the amenities I want. And that depends if I can submit the Creation Kit to my will. So far it is winning!

In unrelated news, it seems like I missed the one year anniversary of this blog! It has been created on July 25 of last year. Where did time go?!?

Unfortunately it also means I didn't prepare anything special to celebrate it. Perhaps next year.

Aaand that should be all for now. Back to the Creation Kit for me!
