Looking for some really good mods.
Hey I love Skyrim and did like everything possible on the PS3 so I decided to get a computer so I could mod it. I was wondering if anyone knew of some really good mods for it, not just graphic enhancing mods. BTW I already have to best mod, Thomas destroyer of Worlds, where all the dragons are thomas the train lol.

Ahh.. i don't know a lot about 'silly' mods like that. >.< Wish i could help!

Well any mod that really adds to the gameplay, kind of like skywind, or some follower mods that have a a couple hours of quests are kind of what I'm looking for.

SkyUI And Sharpshooters ENB or Any other one
I know it sounds crazy but ENB's really add to the games feel

Thanks and I've heard that I should get the SkyUI and are ENB's like the mod that lets you actually burn spiderwebs?

i don't run a lot of mods that add additional quests or anything, but... for followers, have you tried "Interesting NPCs"? It adds lots of new follower NPCs, but then also just some new NPCs to talk to, and to breathe life into various areas of Skyrim that were empty. Some come with a few quests and all are voice acted and i think the voice acting ranges from good to excellent. Some (possibly all, but i haven't tried them all so i am not positive) of the followers the mod adds are even Quest Aware, so they will make comments appropriate to the place you are in, or the quest you are on.

mmm!! "Immersive Creatures" will add additional types of enemies to the game (although none as funny as the train-dragons).

GEMs is a great resource for finding amazing mods.

My top 5 or so recommendations off the top of my head for just general stuff:
Coin Replacer Redux < my favorite mod for skyrim, removes septims from dungeons and adds in lore friendly coins for the ancient nords and the dwemer to collect
Individualised Shout Cooldowns
Moonlight Tales - werebeast encounters, playable werebear, set your werewolf skin, turn and manage your followers as werebeasts
Burn Shock Freeze Effects - spells and weapon enchants show visibly on the corpses
Artifact Overhaul - makes them a lot more unique and useful, daedric items and other uniques
BONUS : SEM Skyrim Encumbrance Mod (if it bugged you like it did me that you could carry everything until you just stopped moving)

For some of my other top mods
Konahriks Accoutrements - Quests and outfits for the dragon priests
Alternate Death Senarios - if youd like a lore friendly way to fail XD
Deadly Dragons - makes dragons more unique and challenging
Random Alternate start - so you dont have to redo helgen if you dont want
Ezes World Map - allows you to fly around the map at any angle and get very close to it

I also recommend these world enhancing mods just to make skyrim a bit more vibrant:
Skyrim Floral Overhaul
Enhanced Lights and FX
Expanded towns and cities
Climates of Tamerial (and weather patch)
ImpREAL unique falkreath

Also make sure you have SKSE, SkyUI for the mod configuration menu (if you dont want the other stuff you can also install SkyUI-Away) and Id recommend grabbing either Wrye Bash or Mod Organiser to help with load order.

Hope that helps,

Thank you for including so much information about these mods, a lot of them seem like ones I will have to check out, especially the dragon priest one. Ah the wonders of modding games

If you like the dragon priest mod, check out the other mods in his set which add some difficulty and unique abilities to the final mask, but also the dragon priests themselves which makes them a much more challenging fight and actually fits really well along side the normal version of Deadly Dragons.
If youd like some more mods of a specific purpose, armor, weapons, magic, quests etc i have a tonne more i could recommend for each, I was just trying to keep the above list short.
Skyrim GEMS really is a great resource though

Also forgot to mention that make sure you get the Unoffical Patches as well.

I made this for peoples starting to mod their games. Some of these mods were already mentioned. List has quite full list of known bug fixes and links to mods adjusting the game to sensible direction.

There should be no compatibility issues between them, if you decide the include each and every one of them.

Small list of little big mods for Skyrim

Now you've embraced Skyrim on PC you'll definitely want to get Falskaar, Wrymstooth and Helgen Reborn mods. Adds an excellent amount of content to the game.

Check my profile description if you wish. I listed all the mods that I have installed atm. Trying to make the game as pretty as possible without an ENB. Also look for Gopher on Youtube and check out his Skyrim Mod Sanctuary videos.
