No mods needed, archer's have been overpowered since day 1
I meant more cosmetical mods, some cool looking bows So far i only installed LOTR weapon mod.
Better looking yet similar/lore compatible should be the immersive armor/weapons from this dude http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/3656551/?tb=mods&pUp=1
No time? It takes as long as dragging and dropping a few files does.
Personally, I won't play skyrim without an ENB, not to mention the fixes or things like enboost/3.1GB bypass/sheson's code that can be associated with it.
To each their own of course, but the difference is stark.
I agree. Can't play the game without ENB
And in related news....
Hey folks! Here's the latest video in my ENB effect demo series, for your consideration.
This video demonstrates how the individual effects of ENB contribute to overall image quality. First a comparison is shown between vanilla Skyrim & full ENB, then individual effects are shown being added in sequence.

I kno what you mean, but you got to find the one you like. I tried it the other evening, had to cahnge some values etc etc, loaded game and it crashed. I want to come home after work, fire up the game and play for an hour or so without over thinking it too much.
Saying that i might give it another go this weekend.
I havent actually played DLCs yet. When do they become available? do i need to be certain level?
I'm not sure at what level the DLC's become available. I think Hearthfires is available right away, but you must become a Thane of a hold and have enough cash to buy land etc. I think Dawnguard kicks off around level 10, and Dragonborn is better played as a 20+ level character.
As for game stability, there are 2 things that will essentially eliminate crashes:
- SKSE.ini memory patch.
There is phenomenal guide on how to set these up (along with some other good tips) at this page: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/50244/?
Also, changing values of ENBseries cannot have any impact on your savegame files, i.e. it does not modify savegame data in any way.
In any case, I can appreciate the desire to just boot up and play without hassles ... I'm just a sucker for cutting edge graphics and eye candy
At least he didn't take an arrow to the knee..
Hi folks! I just finished publishing my latest ENB effect demo video, for your consideration. This time taking a look at the sun rays effect. You
can find the other videos in the series in THIS THREAD.
This video demonstrates the crepuscular rays, or sun rays, effect of ENB series for Skyrim. Sun rays are shafts of light perceived to issue from
the position of the sun. These rays are tinted orange by the atmosphere they traverse, and are most easily visible at dawn and dusk hours. For
details, see the Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crepuscular_rays

Way too late, people have been using other means of getting larger mods for years now.
meh, Workshop is crap anyway. Understanable that it is better for the avg dumb joe tho. One click install/dl.
Not to mention exclusivity to a storefront. (Imagine W3 having steam exclusive mods for example, pathetic)
Maybe that's what they are preparing, interesting thought. They are managing the DLC's for the games similar, that would only make sense.
If Beth still cares about Skyrim they could Patch it and fix the Lip Sync issue that noone has been able to fix yet.
Uh... I don't like where this is going... I don't mind supporting modders with donations, but this... expect to see people posting **** and charging money for it. Before it was about passion and improving the game, but now it might be about making a buck.
EDIT: I have over 200 mods install for Skyrim. If I had to pay for each one of those, $1 to $2 each, then I would have spent between $200 to $400... on mods! If this becomes the norm and the nexus website loses mod authors because they want to monetize on their mods, then modding is dead.
Like having to pay for the Air you've been breathing for free your entire life
I think this idea will increase PC Piracy even more.
Oh don't worry, not all mods will cost money. I bet a lot of the modders that have amde them because of exactly the reason of improving the game have no interest in feeding Valve with their work's payment, if only by a bit.
If Skyrim still goes down the hill with this kind of mod politics, it's not to be held up by us. Also, that game is 4 years old... time to do a new one anyway. If it won't have free mods, I would not by any possible successor.
This might kill the Modding Community when it comes to small Mods, that DO make a difference in many cases no matter how small they are. Everyone wants to get paid now for their Mods, and if they can't they wont bother Modding anymore.
**** microtransactions ... whether they be sold by the publisher or another gamer. A "tip jar" for UGC is one thing (they've always had paypal links on their sites anyway) but a compulsory price tag on a mod? Lol no. **** off. I'm not made of money. The only mods I would consider paying for are those which took a life of their own like Black Mesa or Killing floor.
