The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a role-playing video game being developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls action role-playing video game series, following The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It was released on November 11, 2011 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Skyrim's main story revolves around the player character's efforts to defeat a dragon god who is prophesied to destroy the world. Set two hundred years after Oblivion, the game takes place in the land of Skyrim in the midst of a civil war after the assassination of the king. The open world gameplay of the Elder Scrolls series is continued in Skyrim, as the player character can explore the land at will and ignore or postpone the main quest indefinitely.


Information & Tips

General performance tips: In the game's launcher, disable traditional anti-aliasing and enable FXAA instead. And under its View Distance tab, check the Object Detail Fade box.

Double Skyrim's maximum grass distance with (possibly) little to no performance loss! Open "My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini" and change the "fGrassStartFadeDistance=" value from 7000 (its max in the launcher/in-game display options) to 14000. You won't see any difference between 14000 and higher values, but 7000 to 14000 is a fantastic improvement.

Increase Skyrim's grass density! Open "My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini" and add "iMinGrassSize=20" under the [GRASS] heading.

How to use Bethesda's HD texture pack with all your current texture mods! Disable "HighResTexturePack01.esp" and "HighResTexturePack02.esp" in Skyrim's launcher. Next, open "steamapps\common\Skyrim\Skyrim_default.ini" and "My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Skyrim.ini" and change the following entry to look like this:

Mods & Downloads

[SKYRIM]

If there's a mod not in this list that you feel should be, send me a PM and I'll check it out.

Most of the descriptions below have been taken from their pages.

Every Skyrim in-game book, available in Kindle and e-pub format.

Nexus Mod Manager - Highly recommended. The Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) is a free and open source piece of software that allows you to download, install, update and manage your mods through an easy to use interface. It integrates with the Nexus sites to provide you with a fast, efficient and much less hassle free modding experience.

Skyrim Script Extender - Required for many advanced mods

BOSS - BOSS is designed to assist mod users in avoiding serious conflicts, by setting the correct load order for the plugins they have installed.

Wrye Bash - This is an advanced tool that allows you to merge mods and leveled lists together.

Skyrim GEMS - Skyrim GEMS is a 1-page, quick-reference catalog of lore-friendly gameplay enhancement mods for Skyrim with a focus on mods that create a more realistic, immersive and challenging experience.


INTERFACE

SkyUI - SkyUI is mod that aims to improve Skyrim's User Interface by making it easier to use with mouse and keyboard (it can also be used with a gamepad), less wasteful of available screen space and nicer to look at.

Immersive HUD - The aim of iHUD is to provide the immersive feel you get from having no HUD, whilst keeping the usefulness of having one. It takes the permanently visible HUD elements such as compass and crosshair, and hides them when not needed. It's also configurable, allowing you to disable or enable various features, set HUD elements to toggle or reactive, and more.

A Quality World Map - With Roads - This mod replaces the map with high resolution textures that also includes optional roads.


GAMEPLAY

Skyrim Redone - SkyRe is a full Skyrim overhaul, centered around its gameplay, from the perk system to enemy AI. Note: You will want to download a skill level cap remover for use with SkyRe. Check its mod page for more information.

ACE - ACE is a collection of mods which can be run independently of each other. ACE aspires to brings more depth and balance Skyrim while maintaining its original feel. (Dashui: ACE may be more balanced than SkyRe, and is more compatible with other mods. It doesn't alter the magic trees, however, so you may wish to download the recommended Empowered Magic mod.)

Skyrim Perk Enhancements and Rebalanced Gameplay - (Dashui: SPERG is similar to ACE - more modular and lightweight than SkyRe - with a few additional features.)

Note: Use only SkyRe, ACE or SPERG.

Alternative Start - Live Another Life - Live Another Life provides an alternative means to start the game for those who do not wish to go through the lengthy intro sequence at Helgen. You will be given the opportunity to choose your race and then choose a new life for your character to lead.

ASIS - This mod increases the difficulty of combat by giving the AI access to more potions, perks and spells, improving their general intelligence, and includes options to increase and randomize their spawns. Note: This is not compatible with Skyrim Redone. It is, however, recommended for use with ACE.

The Dance of Death - The Dance of Death is a new kill moves mod built from the ground up... it adds around 25 new/reassigned killmoves against NPC's not already included in the 1.5 patch to virtually all of the combat styles and situations. It also allows you to customize various kill move settings, such as perspective, decapitation chance and more.

Dual Wield Parrying - This allows the player to block while dual wielding. It's a fantastic mod for spellswords.

Sneak Tools - This mod aims to improve stealth gameplay by adding new tools and options for the player, such as different types of arrows inspired by the Thief series.

Ultimate Follower Overhaul - UFO gives you greater control over your followers. Dawnguard Compatibility Note: A compatibility patch was released under the optional files section, but there are still reports of issues.

Deadly Dragons - This mod overhauls dragons making them a much tougher challenge, as well as introducing more than a dozen new types of dragons to fight.

Magic Duel - It lets you get into Dragonball Z energy beam fights with other mages. 'Nuff said.

Dragon Soul Relinquishment - This mod allows you to spend dragon souls to improve some of your character abilities.

Note: Use only one of the following magic overhaul mods. These are not compatible with Skyrim Redone.

Better Magic - The Better Magic series is a group of magic changes that was built simplistically in order to make it compatible with as many mods as possible.

Empowered Magic - This mod changes some mechanics related to general spell casting, as well as perks and spells in all schools of magic, making them scale with level and also more balanced. The goal is to give the player more options and variation to choose from, encouraging the use of all available spells instead of just sticking to the obvious best choices.

Note: Use only one of the following combat overhaul mods.

Duel - Combat Realism - Duel Combat Realism is a mod that improves the combat system of Skyrim, making them more realistic.

Deadly Combat - The mod makes the combat in Skyrim faster-paced, more responsive and realistic and more rewarding to skilled players.

Chopping Block / Wood Fires FIX - This mod fixes the missing textures on skyrim HD pack Chopping Blocks and replaces the ugly textures of Wood Fires.

Revamped Exterior Fog - This mod makes distance fog 50% thinner, making for a better view and more subtle blending with the skyline, and pushes the fog start distance further away.

Project ENB - An ENB intended for use with Climates of Tamriel.

The Wilds ENB - The latest version is not for use with Climates of Tamriel, but its previous versions are. (Dashui: This has great interiors, especially with ELFX, though its exteriors are a tad bright.)

Note: ENBseries mods include a feature called SSAO, or Ambient Occlusion, which is a system intensive shadow rendering technique. For the best performance, you should disable it.

    I hope the MMO is actually good, because I'd love to explore the entirety of Tamriel in a single game. Even in the limited capacity of an MMO, it still sounds like an exciting experience.

    From the plot synopsis video that was posted it kinda sounds like it is going to take place in just Cyrodil, with the three factions invading and trying to take over. I hope I'm wrong but it wouldn't surprise me.

    haha, just had the best thing happen. Gunmar sent me to kill a vampire masquerading as a bard just outside of Winterhold. He's walking around outside and I talk to him outside the inn, try to persuade him to come with me, no dice. I hear a dragon cry, the guards and the vampire draw their swords, the dragon lands on the roof of the inn and immediately breathes directly on the vampire, killing it, and then flies off. Quest complete!

    also, Soul Tear is just such a ridiculously great shout. So overpowered.

    it's sixteen miles to the promised land.

    Went to update the Unofficial Hearthfire Patch and noticed this in the changelog:
    MannequinActivatorSCRIPT.psc has been overhauled in order to finally fix the duplication glitches AND the tendency for mannequins to eat armor that's given to them.

    It was getting pretty annoying, what with the armory I built and all. Now whenever the Enhanced Lights and FX guy gets around to fixing the horrendous lighting in the Hearthfire houses, everything will be swell.

    Some of their fixes have been incorporated into actual patches, which is why you really need to update it regularly (thankfully, it's not hard, and not advertised as needing a clean save).

    They DO take some liberties, so be prepared for some controversial changes (like adding subtitles to dragons, etc.).

    Is that what made the first dragon you fight actually speak? It was kind of annoying.

    Wait, really? The subtitles for dragons are added by the Unofficial Patches? That's interesting. I was sure it was in the base game, for some reason.

    I'm also confused about why that's controversial. Multiple in-game sources talk about how for dragons, there's no difference between combat and a verbal debate since they produce magical effects through their speech. They use the same shouts that you as the player do; why shouldn't they have subtitles?

    Unless those subtitles read "Hi d00d", or "Hey what's up I just ate a mammoth lol". That would be more immersion-breaking.

    I've fought 3 dragons in my current game (first scripted one and 2 random ones), and only the first one spoke. It sounded pretty crappy, though (it was too loud, poor quality (sound and acting), and obviously pitch-shifted to make it sound deeper). I didn't catch most of what he said, but when I landed the killing blow he said, "Dovahkiin, nooooo!" which just felt weird and out of place.

    In the intro the dragon there has subtitles for when he does his attacks, and it's fine.

    That first dragon you kill (for the story) always said that for me, it was just never voiced. Subtitles were always there.

    Man. Thank god I installed that immersive weapons thing. Ever since I found a quarterstaff my hammer-focused lady feels actually useful.

    Subtitles wouldn't bother me, but if something I download adds voices to the dragons I will quit the game, delete the mod with extreme prejudice, and reload the previous save to pretend that it never happened.

    The first dragon you fight has subtitles, and in all versions of the game except the English version it is voiced. The Unofficial Patch adds an English voice but the voice acting is shitty.

    I didn't find a lot of things that struck me as entirely out of line with the general "feel" of the game, myself. Some of them are probably not lore-strict, butas long as it looks like it fits in a TES game I'm game.

    Dragon-talk is a bit inconsistent. Dragons being bilingual or something is a factor, but sometimes there are subtitles and sometimes there aren't.

    Unrelated to the patches: it drives me insane how whenever the dragons talk to the player, every once in a while they insert a word in the dragon language, and then immediately say the English translation of that word right after. Bilingual people don't talk like that (I know because I am one). No one talks like that.

    Yeah, it was weird fighting it at first and seeing a subtitle for "Yol" pop up with no one speaking around me. It was the dragon using the word of power for fire when it was breathing.

    Hey! I know exactly what you're talking about. I'm pretty sure it's the mod: "Fuz Ru Doh". A mod that adds subtitles to non-voiced dialog, dozens of other major mods now require it (Several of the "basic needs" packs make use of it) or ask for it. It makes that first dragon say things in a...as you said, a pitch shifted, auto-tuned, poorly shouted at the mic...way. I swore it even used lines riped from the LOTR movie or something. It was terrible.

    If you don't have that mod, than it must be something else we both have installed. Because I know exactly what you're talking about. I swore it was Fuz Ru Doh though...

  • Toxic PickleToxic Pickle Registered User regular
    I noticed that scripted dragon talking too in my latest play through the game, and was pretty confused by it. I had thought perhaps it was the 'Interesting NPC' mod I installed, but I'm pretty sure that mod just adds new NPCs to the game, rather than modifying existing ones.

    Whatever it is, the voice acting is complete shit and it annoys me greatly that someone thought that was good enough to add into a mod that isn't specifically meant for that purpose. Fortunately, it seems it's only that one dragon which is voice acted, so at least I don't have to hear it again.

    If you don't have that mod, than it must be something else we both have installed. Because I know exactly what you're talking about. I swore it was Fuz Ru Doh though...

    I don't have Fuz Ru Doh, unless another mod included it. My thought was also Interesting NPCs, but I also have the unofficial patches.

    I do not have Interesting NPCs...I'm at a loss.

    Wish my stupid henchmen would stop killing guards when I pay my fines. Also wish Calm worked on stupid henchmen. Also wish stupid henchmen weren't immune to dialogue while killing guards.

    Argh. SkyRe, why you so good, but you're broken in like the one key place where I need you to function (summoning my undead minions to me)? What's the point of gearing these guys up if they're just going to disappear at random, never to be seen or heard from again?

    My henchman got into a fight with my horse last night. I was not pleased.

    This is what a Batman-villain must feel like.

    Yay, rings again! Whoa, Bone Hawk Ring looks like some kind of knuckling-device?

    Ahh the undead henchmen, one of the things I really did like about SkyRe. Not so much the disappearing part, though it was funny that sometimes, long after I thought one was gone, it would come toddling up out of nowhere and rejoin me.
