RLO - Weathers
SweetFX
Dynavision
Skyrim HD 2K Lite

edit: also present in these screenshots:
Lush grass and trees
Detailed Cities
Detailed Towns
Realistic Water Two
EWI's .ini tweaks

looks fairly decent, screenshots look blurry but are sharp ingame, probably need to disable DynaVision before taking screenshots

That does look nice. What hardware are you running this one and what FPS are you getting? Or, hows the general performance loss?
Zefram Cochrane Aug 19 @ 6:50am 
The hardware is an HD 7950. Its mostly lowish performance loss, framerate is 60 fps in most areas, if I'm moving and hit an area with lots of detail (certain mod houses mostly) there is a a drop of 10-15 fps but otherwise its steady. The biggest fps loss is due to HD textures, RLO and SweetFX are minimal I believe.

I use Somber 3 by Maeldun0 which in my opinion is the best looking ENB I have ever came across, and I have tried just about every ENB on Nexus.

Various texture Mods definately aMidianBorn for armor textures though, various interations of K ENBs if you own a supercomputer, currently running Seasons of Skyrim ENB though, great colors and besides K ENBs would consider it the best imo.

Those are nice; very surreally-fantasy looking.

I have so many mods installed, I couldn't begin to tell you all them right off the top of my head. I might be able to pull a list later, but I do remember the following:

ClimatesOfTamriel
Supreme Storms
W.A.T.E.R.
Immersive Saturation Boost
Skyrim HD 2k (think that's the name of it)
Unique Grasses
Static Mesh Improvement Mods
Trees (of some kind)

Here's my Screenshots page:

I particularly like these, as they best show the impact of what some of these mods can do:

What other mods do you use with that Church??? Like W.A.T.E.R. or Pure Waters. Lush Grass Skyrim 2k those kinds of mods.
Zefram Cochrane Aug 19 @ 4:25pm 
I use Realistic Water 2 myself, after trying umpteen different water mods I found that the best for me. Bobbing boats, say no more.

WOWWWWW. I want to know what other mods are used with this and what is the performance hit with ur gpu?
Kaasahthur Aug 19 @ 4:37pm 
As of now I just use aMidianBorn, W.A.T.E.R., Climates of Tamriel, Enhanced Lights and FX, and Undeath(a mod altering undead creatures looks). So, I'm just looking for more mods worth checking out that I can run easily.
i5-4670k and GeForce GTX 760 2GB

Real Vision ENB with C option for Fantasy ambience and most of the recommened mods, besides a few excpetions that kill performance and/or have better alternatives.

http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/30936/?

At the very least everybody should be running Skyrim with COT/RLO/NLA/PureWeather and the ELFX suite.

Even if you don't use ENB, those improve the looks and feeling of the game by ten fold.
Kaasahthur Aug 19 @ 5:12pm 
By NLA you mean Natural Lighting and Atmospherics Okami??? And which mods do you omit from the Real Vision set-up. Or do you have a lower performance PC and that is why you do.

Indeed, Natural Lighting and Atmospherics. Since every one of those mods works on the same area, they are mutually exclusive, try and see which one you like the most, together with ELFX.

COT+ELFX
or
NLA+ELFX
etc

As for real vision, for example instead of the Bethesda Hi-Res DLC Optimized I use Skyrim HD full, instead of Realistic Water Two I use just Pure Waters and nothing more. It's more of a matter that you try each one and find a balance between looks and performance, or install them all, depends on your rig. Using both texture mods for example brings stuttering in my PC.

BTW the performance options of RV are not that demanding so you can also attempt to at least install all the recommended mods in the suggested order and then use one of the performance options, see how it goes.

What I can strongly suggest though is that you use the older 254 revision of RV, or any other ENB preset you prefer, the latest ENB releases are not well optimized.

Looking forward to see your screenshots!
drewdrewdrew Aug 19 @ 5:35pm 
^ May I ask your rig and fps with that setup Okami? I used RealVision Option C performance with 0 texture mods except Realistic Water Two and I'm playing with 35-40 fps. 7870 xt, 8gb ram, i5 3570k.

CoT annoys me with its bright neon grass, even with the patch.
