Game looks like crap after installing mods.
So I went through a list of mods to install to make skyrim look awesome. so I went through and downloaded and installed them in order through the nexus mod manager.. I opened up the game and... It looks like ♥♥♥♥. A few cool lighting effects with fire but other than that it look REALLY terrible.. I was wondering if there's anything I can do... The grass and trees look particularly awful. So, If anybody knows what might be going on or, if i were to start fresh, what mods I should use..
Thanks in advance!

First of all, install and run boss to sort your load order, as load order is extremly important to Skyrim, BOSS will also detect conflicts

Yes, blimey. Anyway. Did you install them all at once, or did you check after every few new mods? It's worth doing that (obviously a bit late now, but next time...) because otherwise you have no way of knowing which mod(s) are causing the problems, also the more you add in all at once, the more likely you'll accidentally introduce two or more conflicting mods. My advice would probably be to deactivate all but a few on the NMM, load up a save from before you added anything, and then go in and see how it looks.

Hey, everyone. Thanks for the replies and, yes I did go to bed after posting this and I forgot to check my pc when I woke up, so really sorry about that. I'm actually kind of a steam discussion novice so I'm not sure if this is how you're supposed to post screen shots but heres a link to a scrrenshot http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=257238261 again, I am REALLY sorry for replying so late! I'll be sure to take more screenshots as this one doesnt really show all of the lameness.. thanks again!

I did check now and again but nearly as frequently as I should have. And I deactivated all the mods that I could from the launcher and it somehow made the game look worse..

WHAT THE ♥♥♥♥ HAVE YOU DONE!?! Dude, did you touch your .ini files or something? KILL IT, KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Alright, now that's out of the way... What are your computer's specifications? I can give you a small list of mods that make a huge, huge difference visually.

Look like one of those mods that adds tons of extra grass 'n' stuff, Skyrim Flora Overhaul? Something like that.

I hated it myself, used Lush Grass and Trees instead. Don't slaveishly follow what other people tell you to do, mods are Recommended only unless they're official patches. Choose what you like, and test each one thoroughly. I have maybe half the mods on the sticky list posted here (I'm not interested in the rest) and quite a few that aren't. Make your own judgment call.

Also ENB's.. they make a huge hit on performance unless you have a high end card. You do know that, right? I don't use them myslef, I get everything I need from RLO or ELFX.

I7 processor, 16 gigs of ram, nvidia geforce gtx 780 ti, 931 gig harddrive and I'm using a 1980x1080 monitor. Did I forget anything? Also thanks!

yeah, I'm using overhaul. I used lush tree and grass at one point and things looked pretty much the same. yeah, I'm new to modding so that's why I blindly followed the list.

How far are you into your game? If you're new to Skyrim maybe start again after deleting all the mod crap you have.

If you're already into it... well lets just say that keeping permanent saves is a very good idea.
