hi guys, sorry for ask this, im sure im not the first person that did this before, and im sure i will not be the last one either, so i want to ask and make this usefull for all:

 

can some1 tell me a list of mods that will work great to improve my skyrim experience?

when i installs mods, in some point something go wrong.. and have to unistall them all, or some other times have to reistall the skyrim full.. and start again whit the mods..

 

im really new in this mods experience.. i always just play the games in the way they apear.. a patch maybe, nothing more, so im a lots blind in this thing...

 

now im using CBBE things.. coz they work more estable for me at last, but i see unp.. chdbwherever and a lots more.. and im afraid of try them.. coz now i have like 60+ thing working on my NMM plugin list.. was a hard try and fail way to find them (most of my friend say that my new game is NMM... not skyrim.. skyrim is just the excuse to spend months on NMM)

 

so whit this question.. i come whit a sugestion:

 

can u guys make a list, and i mean u guys coz u are the ones that have the experience to say it, of mods to use whit the diferents body things and improvement? i mean.. a CBBE list.. a UNP one.. a ADEC one.. and any other u have.. whit the mods u sugest and the order of plugins loads... for graphics improvements.. bodies, clothes, races, wherever u want.. or the list of things u already use and is estable.. 

 

thank u so much for the time of read this, and sorry if my english is not so good.

(i play skyrim on my notebook: 1,8 quad core A8, 1 g video dual graphics, 8 g ram.. just in case u need some technical especs for the list)

STEP, the Skyrim Total Enhancement Project, has a list of 100 or more mods that have been tested together and known to work.  You can read about it here, and see the lists of their recommended mods:

 

http://wiki.step-pro....com/STEP:2.2.7

 

STEP doesn't deal with body mods, though.  There are a number of threads on this forum discussing them.  I learned something from this one, for example:

From what I understand you are having trouble with mod comaptibility. Step is a good start, also other than NMM id suggest you download Boss and Wyre Bash they can usually point out incompatible mods and other problems. There is also a modding tutorial made my Gopher on the front page, id recommend it. Also a quick googling and reading the mods description usually reveals if it will run into problems with other mods. Also when installing a new mod in NMM it will tell you if you are about to overwrite another mod, same goes for textures etc. hope this helps :)

lol.. ok thanks, but no one get the spirit of what i want: when u see youtube videos or pics from the game. its look so perfect and beautyfull.. and when i, or any other new person, try to do it, no matter how many care  we put to read the details of the mods.. we cant make it look like the videos or pics.. the shadows problems.. the texture problems.. the memory problems... coz the game is, as programmer, just horrible.. so many bugs.. no clean memory work.. ect etc..

 

thats why im asking: what did u guys use.. wich mods.. and wich load order u have.. so the ppl that is new.. can start whit doing the same as u.. and then when they learn more.. try his own experiences...

From my experience, usually the people with the really tight looking games have pretty high end gaming rigs. Mines not so high end. I run on an old AMD phenom 9750 quad core. I have 6 gigs of DDR2 ram, an older M2N SLI motherboard, a cheesy diablotex 750 watt Power supply, a soundblaster 7.1 basic sound card and the newest and best piece of equipment in my case? My Nvidia GTX 560ti. My monitor is a Samsung HDTV with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

I use about 68 mods (most of which are standalone additional armor or weapon mods) and most of them have been found to be mostly stable through a LOT of trial and error. Some mods I love but can't use because they cause terrible video lag and others simply CTD at startup for me (ENB causes me to CTD at startup even after following to the last tiny letter the mods installation and ini settings instructions, as an example).

Basically, because computer systems are so wide and varied, no single list of mods that works for one person, is going to work for every machine, and in fact what works for me, might crash your game at startup and vice-versa.

What I have taken to doing is keeping a list of mods that works for me in a notebook by my desk. That way if I try out a mod and it borks my game or simply doesn't work at all I can make a note about it and not use it again. It's a tad tedious, but really.... that is the only way to go about it. you have to find which mods work for YOUR machine and stick with them.

yea right, is a personal experience...  but, if u post ur list of mods AND the especs of ur pc... any other person whit a same hardware will know they can try ur list... and coz i know is a personal thing, i write some especs of my note too:

 

""(i play skyrim on my notebook: 1,8 quad core A8, 1 g video dual graphics, 8 g ram.. just in case u need some technical especs for the list)""

 

i do not know why u focus on the cons... and no in the good points of this...

I doubt anyone is using the same specs as I am, im not using any HDD in my comp only SSDs but I have a not so awesome 580 GTX 1gig. As for looking awesome you can achieve that too but the framerate might not be so good.
and since you asked im using : Skyirm HD Lite texture mods, on top of that I have a buttload of smaller ones that improve specific areas like Project Parralax, Real Ice, WATER, Climates of Tamriel, SFO summer edition, grass on steroids, immersive roads, as well as a bunch of weapon and armor retexture mods. And some minor improvements such as aof farmhouses. On top of that comes Seasons of Skyrim ENB Full Graphics mode. All textures have been resized and compressed with texture optimizer but since im not wathing a billion inch HDTV I cant tell the difference and my game runs smoothly, and it looks light years better than vanilla. Ill edit the post with the full list and some pics so you see how my game looks, when I get home.
