    I think the denizens of these forums like collecting things. Now, I can't offer anything on a par with The Wall from New Vegas, but I am working on adding a bunch of unique/rare collectible cloaks to Cloaks of Skyrim. Hand-placed, static loot, with a bit of flavour text. Rewarding exploration and whatnot! Hoping people will enjoy either stumbling across them whilst on their travels or actively going out to collect 'em.

    Eventually aiming to add quite a lot, but 5 uniques are done so far and will be included when I next update the mod. I just wish the bit where I can write descriptions was longer, to add more flavour text or back-story for each cloak!

    Linky link please?

    Linky link!

    The uniques aren't in just yet. But am trying to get little updates done on a regular basis, so a few of them should appear soon!

    PS - They aren't going to be absolute works of art or anything, as I'm still strictly amateur!

    I downloaded some mods today and started up a new character. Right now I've only got WATER and SkyUI going, any other suggestions for good mods? I don't necessarily want things that change the base game experience, unless they're really awesome. I might do that Cloaks mod, not sure.

    I forgot the question part of my last post where I was going to ask a question.

    How bad is my character going to be by not using enchanted weapons. Armor that is found and already enchanted is good to go, but anything that requires me to use a soul gem will not be used.

    You should be fine. You might want to invest in smithing to make up for it, though.

    So I've got a question about the quest "Blood on the Ice" in Windhelm,
    Spoiler:

    That quest bothered me something awful.
    Spoiler:

    I know, right? There's one of these "solve a murder" quests in every single Elder Scrolls game, at least as far as I can remember, and I always enjoy them because they're the sort of quests that encourage you to read/listen to the other characters in the game and think about what they say. I have no idea how I broke this one, but I'm aggravated as hell.

    Ugh, I just found out that 'Blood on the Ice' was borked in my new game as well. At least I found a work around, but it wasn't the same.

    I decided to go with the Realistic Colors and Real Nights mod, mainly because I don't want to increase my graphics requirements TOO much. I only have a Radeon HD 6700 series, so it's not top of the line and I don't want to stress it out too badly.

    I decided to make a new character since I haven't played in a long while and haven't even finished the game. I played a pure warrior the last time, but now I'm thinking assassin. That's hard to do with so many great skills to choose from, though. I want bows. I want sneak. I want daggers. I want light armor. I like smithing! I want magic. I might just end up using that dragon souls to perks mod so I can have a bit of everything.

    Anyway, screenshot!

    Well, fake as it appears to be, I'd be terribly interested in a Skyrim mod that was insanely creepy for the sake of being insanely creepy. Has anybody taken on this charge?

    So, the ENB "Zoner" pack is quite nice. Despite myself, I even liked having the tiny bit of film grain there too (black bars, though? fuck no, I'm already playing at 1080p). I do wish it didn't turn on during loading screens, , but hey, that's nothing really.

    The principal advantage is the near-nonexistent FPS cost. Any other ENB packs people recommend for someone who's running the HD textures and doesn't want any further slowdown?

    Most of the ENB mods have the same performance, particularly if you disable SSAO. I've been taking and updating comparison shots of most of the popular ENB mods (I disabled SSAO in all of them) if you want to window shop:

    I haven't tried Zoners yet, though. I could take some comparison shots of it if you'd like.

    I played a lot of Skyrim on the PS3, but now that I have a decent PC I'm just waiting for a steam sale to get the game and install some of these mods.

    Did I understand right and they added some kind of interface to just install mods easily? Like Civ 5 for example?

    Steam Workshop. You can access it from your library. It doesn't have everything, though, and it's not great for mods with lots of customization. There's also the Skyrim Nexus mod manager. It downloads mods with the click of a button from the site and installs them for you.

    I've kept the OP updated with a decent list of mods, too, if you need a good starting point.

    This has happened a lot recently.

    But back on topic, yeah, it's definitely ENB. Skyrim had problems prior to this, but never this. I'm using 1.08 (just the most recent one, I thought), and only using the Zoner pack.

    I might try switching to 1.03. I'm using the Injector version right now, just because that seemed to be the one that everyone uses. The last time I used ENBseries was way back in Resident Evil 4 PC, when there was only one version of the program.

    Actually, Override's on the right track. I'd seriously suggest checking each category--or the ones that interest you--and looking through the top endorsed stuff for a few pages.

    Obviously you'll see a lot of stuff that doesn't interest you--and I'm not even referencing the hilarious stuff--but it's still way more stuff than'll be on the Steam Workshop (with far ore options). Try it!

    Also, it's double hilarious that the profile name above me is "Dongs Galore." For a second, I thought I was at Nexus...

    Though not the insanely gratuitous Gears of War-levels of violence, mind you.

    I think that'll still be there.

    EDIT: @Dashui, switching to the dll from 1.02 did in fact stop the crashes. Do you know if I will be missing anything from the later versions if I use the same pack ("Zoner") and going back to Wrapper, rather than Injector? 1.08 seemed to make mention of adding to HDR also.

    I think 108 is an experimental version, which is why you don't see it used much with other ENB mods. It has performance improvements, but not support for various adjustments and settings anymore.
