Someone in video game thread asked about Skyrim mods so I'll post a few of my faves
Armours and clothing>Anything by OperatorCactus / skyrimfuckery
Downloads in the sidebar, pics in the bloghttps://skyrimfuckery.tumblr.com/>Book of UUNP with non-skimpy patch
Original mod is full of coomerism, but it also has quite a few nice more covered ones for females (the mod is not fitted for vanilla body, you need UNP body to use it, or CBBE/other and a patch)https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/7505https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/23719>Sleek Wolf Armour
Makes the wolf armour the companions wear a bit sleeker & removes boob plates from females https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/44812>aMidianBorn Book of Silence
Textures, there might be better more modern ones but I love the black elven armour, won't play without it https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/35382
Hair>Vanilla hair remake
Makes the vanilla hair meshes more detailed and modern, also an option for physics https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/63979>Salt and Wind retextures for vanilla hair
Smoother textures for vanilla hair, without being too shiny https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/45147>Natural Hair colorshttps://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/46299

I hope all of you have given Morrowind and its expansions a try
>doing some sidequest in the caves under the city
>at some point have to kill a lich who's creating a plague
>I'm lvl 80+, got glass armor and enchantments up the ass, my spear of bitter mercy does so much damage I instakill ash vampires with a single stealth attack
>got so much health and healing jewelry I no longer use health potions
>"This is going to be easy"
>finally I get to the lich, Gedna Relvel
>rush to her and hit her straight in the face
>it does 1 pixel of damage
>she fireballs me, lose 3/4 of my health
>I retreat, she's faster than me and blows me up
>turns out in the base game her stats are gimped because lol bethesda code, but the unofficial patch I used fixes it and gives her 800 times more health and stats
Ended up killing her by gobbling down 30 health potions and jumping around to dodge her fireballs, took about 15 minutes but it was the best fight I've had in all of TES

Damn, I admit I just TGM'd my way through Morrowinds main quest and some of the side quests just to experince the story, but I obviously missed a fuckton by basically skipping combat. Maybe I'll need to give it another try.

Blocks your path
I'm fine with the original models because the weird way they look contributes to the foreign atmosphere of the game, but the original textures are so low res that you can count the pixels on them, and get really ugly when you wield a weapon. That's why I have 0 qualms about high res texture mods>>225226

Continuing my mods rec spamming again
I would first download a huge texture overhaul (like Pfushers, Noble or Skyland, comparison in vidrel by some nice lady), then start pathing in models and textures you like better, there are a lot of creators texturing every single minuscule thing in game with the power of pure autism, bless them. Some creators;>ElSopahttps://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/users/6960827?tab=user+files>winedave

Also, mods the edit only textures can be used without problems between different Skyrims (LE & SE), so be sure to check the other games Nexus pages too, you might find some gems.

There's so goddamn many good mesh/texture mods made in the almost 11 years this game has been out it would be impossible to list them all. If it exists, there is a retexture for it.
Bloodmoon was the worst one. Barely adds anything in terms of plot unlike Tribunal, the new map is just a murder island where you can't walk 5 meters without being rushed by 10 wolves, 3 smurfs on boars and spriggans which you have to each murder thrice to make them extra obnoxious. Werewolf powers you get are useless, and getting lycanthropy is useless because you can get a ring that gives exactly the same effects without downsides
Saddest thing is that Bloodmoon was the point where Bethesda completely departed from the Morrowind atmosphere and started doing regular fantasy games with nothing mystic or strange in it. There was a single creature that wasn't original in Vvardenfell, the rat. From Bloodmoon on you now get wolves, bears, boars, caves full of zombies/draugrs, and plots where no one is creepily seductive and nobody betrays you

The tone change from Morrowind to Oblivion is INSANE. The drug fuelled lore and plot, unique world. Then Oblivion comes with moonfaces and generic fantasy forests and HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE HIGH ELVES npc conversations.
I'm so angry they chose Hammerfell (and High Rock? I can't remember) for the next game. God what I would give for Valenwood, Elsweyr or Black Marsh.
My fav part in Morrowind was all the mysteries, conspiracies and secrets in it that you had to uncover>the meaning behind the 36 sermons of vivec>the disappearance of the dwarves>how did nerevar die?>the 26 threads of the webspinner>the 32 museum artifacts>the 10 propylon indices>the two creature merchants>the twin lanterns>the few daedra shrines that actually allow you to communicate with the daedra>a random person may not know much about a subject, but if you find an expert NPC you'll unlock many more conversation subjects>finding out which quests are more profitable by betraying the quest giver>finding out the best way to use transports, mark, recall, divine intervention and almsivi intervention to reach any town in 1 minute>the camonna tong's links to the fighter's guild and house hlaalu>the three vampire clans you can actually join
If you had 2005 internet it could take a thousand hours and multiple playthroughs to uncover all of this. Meanwhile Oblivion has birthsign stones and a phantom mudcrab, and everything else will be indicated to you by markers and helpful NPCs

You could play as gay/bisexual characters in New Vegas (but Bethesda didn't write it) and there's gay marriage in Skyrim, but they don't seem willing to go further. Bethesda knows they don't have to be original to make big bucks, and they'd much rather let the tranny modders make dickgirls than risk losing a big part of their fanbase

based modanons, thanks a lot for posting your faves! Makes me want to start up a freshly modded skyrim again.
What are your opinions regarding the pros and cons of LE and SE nowadays? I remember discourse about different performance results with enb for example>>225520
I have a similar problem lol, while I have a 970 that still holds up I definitely have to update my rig one day because as >>225693
said, default skirym looks like shit and needs to be intensively modded to become beautiful. I want to run all the 4/8k textures and good meshes with nice enb fx without having a significant framerate loss.>>225758
cute and handsome if modded hehe
one of the best npc mods up until today for real.
If anyone wants, I can post a doc with links and a list of faves since I have spent a lot of time with this as well.
Seconding the other nonnie
, please post your faves! I'm the nonna with the 1060 but i love to see what you nonnas fav mods are, i discover so much. It's fun.

>>225790>What are your opinions regarding the pros and cons of LE and SE nowadays?
Imo SE runs better, I have not looked back since I switched. SE runs 64 bit and also has .esl mod files which do not count toward the 255 .esp limit, so you can have more mods.
Oh no, I forgot I had started the "M'rissi Tail of Troubles" mod like a hundred hours ago. I finally realized I have to save her from a prison, there was a time limit I was not aware of, and when I got there she was turned into stone/dead ahhh.
It's a bit badly voice acted silly mod of a catgirl all furry scrotes want to fuck but I still feel sad boo hoo. I appreaciate you can actually get bad endings though!

Do you read the in-game books? What are those you like? I've read all of them at work, my personal favorites are the ones with Decumus Scotti: A Dance in Fire and The Argonian Account
Just to tempt you some more, I recently got a 3080 and can run the heaviest ENBs at solid 60fps (…on a 1080dp monitor but I'm not a monitor slob, I'm just tired of worrying about ENB performance).>>225157
Confession: I'm trying to make my own OC husbando in this game, I even picked out a voice actor and am trying to find as many clips of his voice so I can put it through that AI voice mod to make him say whatever I want to.
Is that the Berenzia one that got censored past Morrowind because of barbed khajit penis

Not me using the console command every 10min to edit the hairstyle of my character, choosing between one of the 876 hairstyles the mod i've installed offers.
This mod is a blessing and a curse, i can't focus on playing i have to see how she looks in game with every hairstyle, ugh, so dumb.

I love bosmers as a race they can go from goofballs (like Fargoth and adoring fan) to cannibalistic feral beast creatures, but I hate that their concept was "women are all gorgeous waifus and men are ugly fucks", I'm glad that it's one of those Michael Kirkbride's ideas they never used I saw a version of this concept art with notes before, but now I can't find it, but oh well. This is literally imaginary world let women be feral
File: 1662583483138.png (883.61 KB, 600x1000, Barenziah_TR.png)
Very demented theory but I think Barenziah was inspired by Theodora I (T1) and Theodora the Armenian (T2), two byzantine empresses
>before becoming queen/empress Barenziah and T1 had a disreputable profession (thief/prostitute)
>they got married to an emperor (Justinian)/emperor's best general (Symmachus) who started life as a peasant
"Symmachus" ends like "Belisarius", who was emperor Justinian's best general and as famous as the emperor. IRL T1 and Belisarius didn't date, the writer just merged Belisarius and Justinian to make a better story
>their husbands had to face an important riot, had the possibility to flee, but ultimately decided to stay for the good of the country
The difference being Symmachus died in the riot, Justinian didn't
>they both had a slanderous biography made by a scribe who worked for them (The secret history/The real Barenziah), balanced by an official proper biography
>the names of the scribes sound the same (Procopius/Plitinius)
>just like T2, her husband died early and she ruled alone waiting for her child (Michael III/Helseth) to be of age, said child proving to be quite the plotter and fond of using assassins to murder those who wouldn't let him rule as he pleased (Theoktistos/the Nerevarine)
>just like T2, she named her daughter after her husband's mother
The pieces fit…
This is the same series that has lizard people with titties, soooo
(I do love Bosmer and Argonians though)
I'm just a sperg and I hate when I have to face scrotery even in my dumb fantasy world. Can't even watch lore video without some soyboy being a sexist pig (yes I talk about camelworks)>>237000

I admire your dedication, please let us know how it goes
Probably true and if so, that's awesome >>237065
true, it's such an uninspired look. I guess since the Forsworn seem like a lazy allegory for native americans, they have to wear skimpy clothes like how the most basic of southern and tropical native americans look in art, or in pornos. Imagine they actually dressed like wendigos with proper large skulls on their head instead. All of them.
super late since i’ve not as terminally online anymore, but ata >>225790
and I wanted to mention that I just finished modding a new SE session after days of work! I’ll hope I can post my faves soon, I just want to make sure to not recommend shit mods since I’m trying out a lot of new stuff. Anyway I was looking for that one blog (eskyrim) where shitloads of armor and clothing mods were compiled just to see that the guy who ran it made it locked behind a paywall. I was searching for alternatives and found the modbooru, which is nice but 90% coomer stuff and I’m pretty sure it’s missing some really good ones. does anyone know of other good armor mod blogs? I’m pretty out of touch>>231263>>242181
I used to play it a lot for a while. I got so much stuff that was hard to grind for but somehow I stopped playing idk. It’s true it’s a super generic mmo but I liked the huge amount of lore and stupid side quests as well as the fact that you can go nuts with styling and roleplaying ( if you ignore the main questline. ) I do not like that everyone is the literal chosen one, wish you could be just some generic peasant or something but well. almost everyone runs around there looking like some overstyled donutsteel character lol while I love to make themed characters who fit neat into the world. I also loved how the ingame economy had a weird life of its own. I actually considered playing it again this winter! It’s also a very pretty game if you use LUT and reshade smaa because the default antialiasing is abysmal, or at least it used to be. >>242500

no idea on most of this but I would suggest tumblr, you can edit your posts and choose layout I think its better than twitter for this. I am getting into 3D and would love to make custom armors anyone got some good tutorials on how to implement them into the game? It must be relatively easy seeing the many armor ports.
Not sure if this suffice but here, i used to use this tutorial back in the days but it's been around for years so I'm not sure if it still holds up? Yeah, porting is pretty easy if you know your blender basic though! Just extract the armor model and fit it into Skyrim with blender, best of luck to you nona!http://wiki.tesnexus.com/index.php/Creating_an_armour_for_Skyrim._Part_1
In another topic, would you nonas indulge in my autism and share your favorite armor mod for Skyrim?
That pic is diabolical, my thoughts exactly on these updates. I recently watched a documentary made by the former team that worked on Skyrim, I thought it was insightful because even though it's such a buggy game they really seemed to pour their love into it and I'm convinced whoever is told to update the game now are just a skeleton crew to keep reminding us Skyim exists and they don't care about it at all. The consequence being that they introduce even more bugs because they didn't create it (see: one of the updates corrupted two textures somehow that makes you crash upon viewing them, meaning potentially any file in the game is botched and we just haven't discovered it yet).
About the armor, I don't know anything about making 3D assets but the part where you set up the objects for them in the CK is relatively easy. You can just copy and paste an existing armor to be your template and reroute the meshes to be your custom ones. It can also be done in xEdit if you don't want to touch the CK.

I adore Halloween, so about a year ago, I made a special Halloween-themed character. I customized the fuck out of her, she's a witch in the "Wizard of Oz" sense. I'd downloaded some Halloween decor mods, a custom spell that lets you throw exploding, laughing pumpkins, a shack out in the swamps that sells Halloween goodies and armor, and my vampire boyfriendo follower. Our gimmick was we could only roam around during nighttime. I forgot to play her this year, but there's still time left before the year is out. Picrel is boyfriendo in the swamp shack.

Aww, thank you. Honestly, the best way to come up with good roleplaying is download a silly mod and see where it takes you. Picrel is one of my other characters. I downloaded a flower crown mod and everything just spiraled out of control.

I got my sister hooked on Skyrim for the first time ever this month and it's so cute to see her get obsessed with it.
Oh man I remember having sexual fantasies about Martin Septim because of his voice. Sean Bean has one of the sexiest voices ever.
I used to love Oblivion but after playing so much Skyrim I have trouble going back to it. Mostly because it's harder, and because of the ugly people like you said. It definitely has more of an 'rpg' feel if that makes sense, and Skyrim is more of an action game. I really want to play and beat it again someday though.
i would kill to play oblivion on switch. or any fallout game, but itll never happen. i cant imagine tes6 will come to whatever current Nintendo console either, they just didnt want to be left out as the only platform you couldnt
play skyrim on. i cant believe the switch eventually got the anniversary update either, they didnt have to do that
