The Ultimate Realistic and Immersive Skyrim Experience

 

A catalog of over 100 mods that you should install if you want your Skyrim game to be the most real life-like

 

I made a save file with the most realistic mods I found, so I wanted to share them with you now :D

This list concentrates the majority in gameplay, so it does not include city enhancements for example since they are not neccesary for a realistic experience.

I'll first list the ones that you must have installed in order to make the game the most realistic possible, and then a list of optional mods that you can include just if you want since with the main list it already has too much mods.

 

This list is intended for players who are already familiar with the vanilla game and want something new.

 

Mods that should be included:

  • A Quality World Map

It grants the visibility of the roads that you are going through. You'll never get lost!

http://www.nexusmods...rim/mods/4929/?

 

  • Animallica

Provides new animal species, just like the real world.

http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/57413/?

 

  • Animated Clutter

Things that did not move before now do.

http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/48287/?

 

  • Animations

Your character will perform new animations when interacting with objects, as well as with Animated Clutter.

  • Audio Overhaul for Skyrim 2

Makes sounds more realistic and better in overall.

http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/43773/?

 

  • Auto Unequip Ammo

Because it is annoying that when you change from bow to any other weapon your quiver stays there.

http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/10753/?

 

  • Bandolier - Bags and Pouches

In a so realistic word you should be able to carry more things in containers hanging in your body, right?

  • Battle Fatigue and Injuries

Because you are supposed to get tired and hurt in a real way.
