Recommended Mods for...

I was wondering if anyone had a list or some suggestions of recommended mods for players on iGPU? I have Intel HD 4600 with a i5-4670k, if that matters. I know it plays on low now and I'm fine with that for now (getting GPU later), but I was wondering if there were any mods out there I could use to help improve the game without destroying FPS too much.

So, if you have any suggestions, please leave them! :D

climates of tamriel, immersive weapons, immersive armors, enhanced lights and fx, skyui. all are great mods and none should give a huge fps impact.

An addendum to the question here. I can't seem to find the awesome followers tweak. Is it not a steam workshop item?

@Sheep from Hell

Alright, downloading them right now. Got any others?


Not sure what tweak that is....

do you mean AMAZING follower tweaks? dont know if its in the workshop, but surely on nexus. i prefer ultimate follower overhaul

sure tons of it :D in this list are the most important
but many have an fps impact, so beware.
after upgrading your gpu must have mods are:
static mesh improvements
monster mod (when you got the dlcs skyrim immersive creatures)
skyrim flora overhaul
deadly combat
deadly dragons
skyrim hd 2k textures
ultimate follower overhaul
pure water or w.a.t.e.r (matter of taste watch for comparison videos)
skytest realistic animals and predators
realistic needs and diseases
immersive hud
xenius character enhancement
improved npc clothing
better dynamic snow
and a good enb (matter of taste watch for comparison videos)

there are much more but with all of these skyrim is much better then the vanilla version and they are compatible (i use them all myself). important, read install instructions, watch for compability patches

Hi, I made this collection to answer just such a question.
there's 109 mods in there that all work together without clashing!
If your going for graphics i recomend the official high rez DLC!

Oh..yeah...that. Explains why I couldn't find it. ~hides face in shame~

So what about ultimate follower do you prefer? I have just heard the other mentioned a lot(even tho I clearly didn't remember the name) And I was looking for something that fixes the follower AI enough so I'm not beathing the crap out of Lydia or the dog to get them out of my way and stop them from shoving me off

I can only find the French version of AFT, I finally found the English version by going to a link from my browser that was mentioned in the info for the French one. Is it because older mods simply don't show up in Steam searches? I can't seem to find UFO either, tho lots of mods mention it. I suppose I could look at nexus, but my problem with that is they all seem to require skse..and I have an older computer that groans every time I start skyrim with the 10 mods I have as is. I'd rather not install 50 other addons if I can avoid it.

Edit: Sorry thread author, I don't mean to hijack your thread, but I figured it was as good a place to ask as any other, rather than start another thread that's likely repeated 50 other places

Thanks to all that posted!

@sheep from hell

Thanks for the link and the list! And don't worry, I've installed mods before so I'm always extra careful.

Because I think Steam deletes old threads I'm going to just screenshot the posts or see if I can download the page for later use.

*and I have all the DLC; got the Legendary Edition. :)


It is fine! :)

Helmetless warrior. It's always nice to see your character's face when you play in third person

immortal dragonborn is a pretty cool mod, adds fun to the game
sheep from hell Feb 22, 2014 @ 7:03pm 
aft and ufo at nexus need no skse. aft is the bigger mod with more possibilities, ufo is slimer. i dont want followers to be as mighty as my hero, so for me ufo with easy options to equip and lvl followers is ok for me
