Hello there, 


I'm experiencing a number of game glitches, nothing game-breaking, but extremely annoying and odd. I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct section of the forums to post this in, but I hope it is. Rather than trying to explain the various game glitches, I just took screenshots of each one and was hoping that someone could help me out. Now, the only glitch of these that I've had in the past (before I did a clean uninstall/reinstall of the game) is the shadowing stripping. The first glitch, shown in the screenshot below, is certain NPCS are partially bald, a patch of hair is missing, and all the mods that I currently have installed, I've had installed before, but never had this problem up until recently. 




Now this one shows the shadow stripping, but it might be worth pointing out that I only seem to get this shadow striping on snow and very rarely on anything else.





This one has to do with textures. I use the texture pack combiner and have all the necessary mods installed with it except for SRO because that is no longer available. For the most part, it works great, but there are a couple areas, really just areas that involve stone work such as the tower in Helgen where there is a noticeable difference with the texture quality that just seems off and hurts the immersion. I have looked into possibly installing Vandr Presents - HD Imperial Tower since the towers seem to be the main source of this problem, but I'm not sure if that would help or not.




Here is another one that shows the same problem. 




And one more. The majority of each step seems to be of decent quality, but on each step there are these patches or very poor quality textures, and I would like, if possible, to get rid of those.





Finally, and this is the strangest one of all, there is this odd glitch inside buildings. It seems to be a lighting glitch, but there is also a strange black mist around objects. If I stand still, everything is fine, but when I turn it does this really odd glitch, and it is the most irritating one of all because I just can't be inside buildings anymore without getting a headache. I should point out that I do have Project ENB, Climates of Tamriel, and Realistic Lightening installed. However, these are supposed to work well together, and I've had all these three installed successfully before without this problem. I've tried deactivating the mod that removes shadows inside buildings, but keeps the lighting intact (Colorful Lights, No Shadows) as well as more dynamic shadows with striping fixed, but deactivating those didn't fix it. I tried restoring my skyrimpref.ini to a time when this issue wasn't there and that didn't work. I can't think of anything else that could be causing it. The only other mod I have that effects lighting is wearable lanterns, but I can't see how that could be effecting the interior lights like this. I've also searched for this problem online, but I can't find anyone else who has and, of course, not any solutions. To better show you what I'm talking about, I uploaded a short video of the glitch to Youtbue. Here the link:



If anyone has any suggestions to any of these problems I would really appreciate it. Maybe I should mention as well that even with these glitches my Skyrim game is running smooth, my FPS is steady, and it's even fairly smooth with the ENB active, so the problems must be mod or ini tweak related. Alright, I thank anyone who takes the time to read this in advance, and hopefully I can get some answers soon. Also, if you do need my mod order list I will be happy to put that on here as well. Thank you again.
