Start new game...? Also there's no reason why you couldn't do the switch. You can be master of all in this game.

If some of your warriors skills are close to 100 keep using them until they reach it. After that you'll be able to make them legendary which resets that skill set back to 15 and gives back you all of its perks to be reused for whatever skill set you desire.

Stealth and Archery is very satisfying in the game, feels good to enchant a bow with more than 400 chargers of 1 fire damage buff (to light enemies on fire) from afar.

Also If you are planning to start the game from, I recommend you try a mod which overhuals the entire perk/skill trees so that they are just not 'Damage' and 'More Damage'.

If you want to be a different character with a certain combat strategy its best to start over from scratch. The game levels with you and what most ppl are missing is the fact that if you begin archery / sneaking at higher levels (if you have a lvl 50 warrior for example) your arrows or sneaking blows won't be very effective against enemies and you'll fall back on your main combat strategy anyway.

The game needs DOF, because the visuals suck and the blur hide the ugly pixels. (especially when you are out in the open and you can see the landscape afar shaved bare..)

Have you tried SkyRealism ENB? It stays very close to vanilla in terms of vibrancy, saturation and contrast (actually it has several presets one of which is identical to vanilla) but adds many effects like SSAO, god rays, etc.

I've tried many mods and ended up sticking with SkyRealism ENB. It's excellent and runs great.

Unfortunately I can't actually use it because I play on a 5:4 monitor in "letterbox" mode (16:9) and the SkyRealism code gets confused about what my aspect ratio actually is (other ENBs, that use the regular code base by Boris, don't have this issue).

I know how to edit ENB, and every trick about lighting tweaks in general.

I was simply asking is there any ENB based mod that looks normal.

Based on screens this one looks the best. Author has a taste, and I'm not surprised when i saw other mods he has.

Still vibrant preset is too vibrant and many screens are destroyed with this horrible dof.

Problem with every Skyrim lighting mod is that when they change intensity and color of light - textures will look too vibrant or too bright. You also must tweak texture color. But that's too much job and will turn your mod into the texture/lighting mod.

If anyone is looking for a good ENB you should try Somber ENB. At the moment it's my favorite one.

I thought i would start another char for lol's because i was a bit bored with my current one.
Realised its better to have a predetermined idea of what you want your toon to be....a jack of all trades toon is really boring as you dont have focus.
I went a Nord and basically want to play him like a Bear Shaman in AoC....2hB weapon and healing abilities.....if only he could summon a Bear to fight along side

Turns out he is my only char now as i never created a seperate save for my old Dark Elf and all my saves got overwritten haha.

So bought Dragon born Expansion and got a whole lot of mods and stuff and am really enjoying this playthrough.

Some highlights so far....

1) Beating on a wizard, have him fall to his knees and beg for mercy then mid sentance Lydias arrow wizzes from stage left and takes him out....i actually loled for a while irl (wife thought i was crazy)

2) On top of a tower fighting a bandit....he starts saying "you will never take me!!'....mid sentence i fatality him and knock him off the tower....more out loud laughing from me...more "not amused" looks form the missus.

So yeah...really liking it this time round...plus since i upgraded the PC i can now enjoy all the texture mods etc that i stuggled with before.

Nothing beats FUSRODAHing someone from a high point and watch him fall. Draugr Deathlords have the best gliding abilities btw xD

And those 'not amused looks' could a warning from your missus - you're simply not allowed to have more fun than her, you better make up for it

Most (or rather) all the ENB presets which looks good at first instance by adding a larger amount of visual impact, starts to fatigue the eyes when you are playing the game.

The best ENB presets are the ones which doesn't add loads of fancy stuff, because while playing a game your concentration to lock onto something in motion is what matters the most and the later just adds distraction (very bright and sparkly effects).

Rest of the fancy stuff is good for taking screen shots, because you can't portray a lot of information in a still screen(shot) when compared against the game when in motion. <- In this area, I applaud all the ENB presets which adds a lot of perceivable effects onscreen and you can show a lot of visuals in a single image.

Note: I come to prefer SkyRealism (Vibrant) ENB too, the game is pleasant enough to play and enjoy. *except when its bright afternoon in snowy regions, where I turn off the ENB with Shift+F12*

Does anyone know a good delevelling mod to make the world static, rather than levelling everything with the player?

I use Skyrim Redone, its adds a sort of Enemy Scaling modification to the game. (And I am not sure if this is what you need, but with the other modifications done by the mod..gameplay is more balanced on my system now)

Quote from Skyrim Redone Guide (changes done by Skyrim Redone modification); Link -> http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/33995/?

Quote:
7 MODULE: SKYRE-ENEMY SCALING
Enemies doní scale well above level 50, and generally suffer from a lack of perks and spells.
Since Skyrim Redone promotes high level gameplay, adjustments were made.

7.1 humanoid enemies

Enemy leveling
* Enemies of vanilla level x now vary between 2/3x and 4/3x, for example: Level 10 (vanilla)
--> Level 5 - Level 15 (modded)
* High level enemies and boss level enemies scale up to level 100
* Enemies at vanilla level 1 scale between 1 and 3.
* Thieves and random assassins have a new max level of 100, and level at the same speed as the player.

Enemy stats
* In vanilla Skyrim, some enemies gain huge, free boosts to health, magicka and stamina.
* In Skyrim Redone, they start at 100, just like you, and gain more with every level - just like you.
* This makes gameplay fair and opens up new tactics - you can avoid spells and make mages run out of magicka, for example.
* This feature is somewhat experimental; it does not cover Forsworn yet, but if it is well adopted, it will at some point.

Spells and perks
* Enemies carry more perks and spells, including the new stuff from Skyrim Redone. The distribution is not as thorough as ASIS does it, though, so you might take a peek at 12.

Quote:
9 MODULE: SKYRE-ENCOUNTER ZONES

In vanilla Skyrim, most zones adjust to your level completely. This makes it easy to beat any dungeon, whenever you may reach it.

This little plug-in assigns minimum levels to many zones, quite a few being rather high, That means you will come in situations where enemies might just be too strong to beat for the moment... but it also means that you might just get a sweet piece of loot when beating a high-level dungeon early.

If you donít use this module, youíre a wussy.
Also, forget it - Iíll not do an exact list of zone levels. Thereís hundreds, and this guide is already getting long. You wouldnít read it anyway lol.
If you prefer to randomize your experience, use the WTF tool instead (12).

Can anyone please tell me what you do when you need to update mods? (in my case i noticed my unoficial patches are way older than they should)

Im using nexus. Do i need to disable mod, then delete, then download same mod but newest version and then install it with nexus?

Or just download/install newest mod and overwrite everything? It sounds sketchy.

Deactivate current installed version.

It's pretty simple to update using Nexus Mod Manager; at least I've never had any problems with it and I used it exclusively for my last 2 or 3 Skyrim playthroughs.
