This is Skyrim! Or is it?
I was watching Skyrim vids on youtube and I was wondering, do I have the right game?

All those colors, my Skyrim is grey and snow with the occasional splash of brown and green. Not to mention the people, they had weapons and apparel I don't remember seeing even on Nexus. The whole thing was so sharp and crisp, but also at the same time seemed more fake.

I suppose you need a gaming computer with beaucoup ram and game cards that most of us never heard of. Still, I love my Skyrim just the same.

Do you guys have these mods that seem to change the whole game? Just was wondering if you like to make Skyrim as pretty as those vids, or just enough to please yourself? How do you mod your game?

I use about 200 mods to enhance my gaming experience. I also make my own follower mods. I like to take screenshots, but I haven't done any videos yet. It is possible to mod a bit with a low end computer but to do it right you need a video card with lots of memory and a large hard drive. There are also mods to add new quests and even new lands, such as Falskaar and Wyrmstooth. If you've got the coin, it's well worth it.

There are several tutorials on YouTube which can help you learn how to mod your game. Do a search for 'modding skyrim' and you'll probably find them. It takes much patience and a bit of study to do it. There is lots of trial and error. It took me about a year to finally get mine where I want it. I had to un-install and re-install the game a few times also due to screw ups. It depends upon how well you understand computers. I would not undertake it lightly. But for me--I love it.

Mostly ENB's. There are a lot of different kinds, some look dark, others really colorful. They're easy to download, but can make your game a whole lot slower.

Again, post the video.

Yeah, I searched that on youtube, and the first video that came up did not look like you'd described.

Post a video.

Hey, I saw a video and all the people had, like necks that were, like 4 ft long... what do you think?

I think you should post the damn video.

The main thing which affects colorization, beyond texture replacers, is ENBs and they can make a world's difference between how the game looks and seems. However they are kinda resource hogs. However if you want "light" way to make your Skyrim feel completely different try using Tropical Skyrim -- A Climate Overhaul[] mod. It makes Skyrim seem almost like Elsweyr, or at least how it has been depicted.

I am not a computer guy, can't post vids, but here are a couple of titles;

Swingin' the Hamma'-ultra modded Skyrim-ep 14
Everything is awesome in this vid.

Skyrim-become a bard; the rains of Castamar from the game of thrones
The outfits, the people and the dagger look so cool.

My laptop is just a dv6-7027 with win 7 and a Radeon graphics (card I guess), handles my 20 or so mods quite well.
