Mod Tips for New PC player
Hi Folks,

I just purchased Skyrim Legendary edition, I played many hours on PS3, With this being my first PC turn I would like to put some good immersion mods in to make the game harder.

Here is a list of what mods I've found online and like the look of, if you folks could tell me not to get any of these or if you have any further ones I should add.

Skyrim Redone
Frost Fall
Wet And Cold
Realistic Needs and Diseases
Immersive HUD
Sounds of Skyrim
Skyrim HeartRate
Skyrim HD 2k
Lush Trees & Grass
Climates of Tamriel
Immersive Armours & Weapons
Enhaced Blood Textures.

Well if you have a lot of experience with the game then I can definitely recommend:
Skyrim Redone (with SkyRE REPROCCER) or Requiem as an overall overhaul of the gameplay.

Requiem is more role-play overhaul while SkyRE builds from what Skyrim already is.

UFO / EFF / AFT as a follower framework overhaul.
Falskaar and Wyrmstooth are two of the biggest mods content-wise. (On level with official DLC.)
Interesting NPCs and Inconsequential NPCs make the game more lively as they add plenty more NPCs around the world.

The UNOFFICIAL PATCH by Arthmoor, Kivan, Quarn to fix the many bugs Bethesda didnt have time to tackle otherwise we might still be waiting for SKYRIM :D

Best ones for me are the grass mods, look for dense vegetation too.

SKSE since you want Enhanced Blood, Immerse Hud

That's basically my core mod selection, though I use alternatives for some of those mods like INeed instead of RND. However, you should definetly dig for SkyRe additions like ReProccer and "SkyRe Compatibility and ReProccer Patches". Unfortunately that leads to even more mods like crafting overhaul redone etc. but I didn't regret setting them all up at all.
Third Era Attributes and Sands of Time.

Might be nicw to know your rig's specs so people have an idea if the mods will kill your fps. Some of the mods suggested are fairly demanding on your CPU/GPU.

Deadly Dragons is a cool mod for harder dragons with new skills and abilities. Also can set it up to have dragons attack you every so often.

I would also hightly recomend a mod called Better Vampires if you decide to become a vampire.

I use several of those mods in your list. Some additional ones I like:
Duel: Combat Realism
The Hunting Game (Steam Workshop)
Better Dynamic Snow (Steam Workshop)
(...and many more...)
Also, get LOOT.
ENBS, Get a good enb and ur skyrim will lokke just fkin awesome.

Edit: if ur pc cant run an enb try "icantbeliaveitsnotanenb"it makes the game looks better whit no performance cost.

Several suggestions have already brought up what I would have, but I do have a recommendation for an overhaul of sorts. S.P.E.R.G. (Skyrim Perk Enhancements and Rebalanced Gameplay) is a lightweight overhaul that adds some nice changes to the perk trees without having too many compatibility issues. For example, say you wanted to add a mod that changed a few things for one perk tree? You can go into S.P.E.R.G. and turn off its changes to said perk tree, and simply use that new mod's changes.

I used Skyrim Redone before, and it's fun, but even with the Reproccer to patch things up, compatibility can be a big issue. S.P.E.R.G. might be a good place to start as it will change us Skyrim a bit (since you already have experience with it) but let you try out other mods without stressing too much about whether it will work with SkyRe or not.

Here's S.P.E.R.G., if you're interested:

Also, as others have said, your rig specs would help immensely. :3
