New Elder Scrolls thread! Where we talk about Bethesda's open world high fantasy series and the oodles and oodles of mods that have expanded said games into basically eternal adventures.
Mostly, Skyrim, because that's the game that's the newest, other than ESO, Legends, and Blades. Just got an HD upgrade! Still has many great mods coming out for it!
There are a lot of games, I'm not going to list them all tbh. Uhh, go play Morrowind.

I already know about the main essential mods for Morrowind for a first timer, especially the graphics overhaul. Though I wouldn't mind hearing about other favorite mods, since I may start up my own game to play in conjunction with my friend.
The Master Index adds a long quest that will open up a new transportation system that can help getting around the island easier.
LeFemm Armor and Adamantium Armor basically fix the problem with medium armor.
I'm more looking for something that will let me efficiently organise and manage my mods without going crazy.
*edit* I guess Nexus Mod Manager it is. /shrug
Anyways, glad to have a thread again.
More on-topic, I'm surprised that there still isn't a script extender available for Skyrim SE. I know they said it'd be a few months, but honestly I thought they were exaggerating. Guess not...
Still, I've noticed the mod scene for SE on the Nexus is more active than Fallout 4's. Granted, most of that is transfers from old Skyrim, but it's pretty noticeable.
Weird bug: I married Aela the Huntress and at some point she apparently got kidnapped by bandits. I got a quest to go save her, which seemed dumb, because she's Aela the Huntress. I was getting my inventory organized and prepping to go out, when suddenly the quest completed. I still had the quest to get additional work from the Companion leaders, so I toggled it on just to see where she was. Followed the waypoint and found her walking back home. Guess she fought her way out. However, ever since then, she's been super buggy. Walking backwards, doing this little back and forth sidestep in an endless loop, which I've dubbed the Truffle Shuffle. She's completely useless as a follower now as well, doesn't fight anything.
Not sure what happened there. I wonder if it was the marriage. Is there a way to divorce?
But while I wait another week, I thought I might download some must have mods. One I always hear about is a body mod that most of the clothes mods are compatible with. What's the name of it? And what's some other must have mods I really need.
Sophia companion, and obviously a mod to give all the women 4 foot long horse cocks. because elder scrolls, of course.
I already had the horse cock mod. First thing I downloaded. Nothing says perfect fantasy women like 4 foot long horse cocks.
I..I was just making up a horrible idea as a joke.
I had no idea it was a real thing.
an internet search just proved me wrong
That is probably on the tame side of horrifying things that exist.
Tentative date for the first beta is mid-March.
Why do all devs sound the same.
All right, people. It is not a gerbil. It is not a hamster. It is not a guinea pig. It is a death rabbit. Death. Rabbit. Say it with me, now.
Essentially; I can't remember how you play this game without a mod that lets your beard and hair grow over time and don't have the know how to make one myself.
I wouldn't get concerned over it until Script Extender gets released. I bet a lot of people are waiting for that, regardless if they use it, since its the backbone of modding.
and without growable beards what's the poiiiiiiiinnnnnnnt
Be honest with us, Tube.
its not growable beards you want, is it?
Its growable downunder beards, isn't it?
Edit: Nevermind. Seems that NMM and FNIS aren't friendly, so I did a manual install of FNIS and now they are working.
Those screenshots don't look any different from the default UI, aside from a horrible font.
Don't recall which version number it was, but one of the older SkyUI versions works in the remaster without the Extender.
Wh-what? You're saying it doesn't look different from this?
That looks different from the QD inventory page pictures.
the images on the QD Inventory page look exactly like the default item UI, with an uglier font.
I guess I don't know what you mean. The pic I showed was the default inventory screen for Skyrim. You are possibly talking about something else.
Either way, I don't disagree that QD Inventory looks ugly, but it's an actual PC interface which is not something I can say about Skyrim's default, which was clearly designed (poorly) for consoles.
Is that in the remastered version? cause my inventory does not look like that, and I have no UI mod.
I mean, I don't think it's the giant dumpster fire that most people try to make it out to be, but it is very clunky. Separating everything into different menu categories that you have to cycle through instead of a convenient list of everything is the main irritant for me.
I always end up a sneaky archer though.
I almost always invest in archery as well, as the magic I use tends to be alteration and illusion. Sometimes conjuration. It's a bit of a rut.
Clearly the answer is to duct tape a torch to your 2-hander.
