Modding the bajeesus out of Skyrim
Hello all,

Just bought Skyrim Legendary Edition. I've played it before, and to death. I want a totally revamped, new experience.


1: Is there anything I need to watch out for, such as game breaking mod conflicts? If so, what mods are notoriously incompatible with many other mods? What should I look out for when selecting mods in relation to conflicts?

2: What mods would you suggest to revamp skyrim, and make it unrecognisable? Texture packs, best ENB's, extra weapons, or any must have mods.

1: Most mod authors will state potential imcompatibilities on their mods, so you should be safe from anything breaking too badly if you read those thoroughly. Using LOOT is also necessary for keeping your mods' load order correct.

2: Here's a list of what I consider to be essential for overhauling the game. It's not as expansive as you might want, but it might be a good starting point. I haven't included any graphical or equipment mods here, as those are quite subjective.

  • The unofficial patches
  • SkyUI
  • Skyrim Redone
  • Interesting NPCs
  • Deadly Dragons
  • Fantasy Soundtrack Project
  • Audio Overhaul for Skyrim 2
  • Extensible Follower Framework
  • Alternate Start - Live Another Life
  • Forgotten Magic Redone

    If you're into survivalism, then Frostfall, iNeed and Wet and Cold are great for that.

Awesome, thank you both for your help.

Can't believe I also forgot to check the pinned topics. Apologies.

We all have our moments. Must have mods are LOOT and the Unofficial Patches. Have fun ;)

This is all subjective but I recomment a lighting overhaul like ELFX or Real Lights OVerhaul (RLO). Beyond that: Frostfall, Hunterborn, Forgotten Magic, Dragon Combat Overhaul, Interesting NPCs, SkyUI, Immersive Armors, Inconsequental NPCs, RaceMenu, ACE, unofficial patches.
