Hi. Just bought the game and i want to upgrade it.
Since it will be my first playtrough, I'm only interested in graphics mods.

This is my personal mod list, with most of the mods removed. What remains are the graphics mods, with other game fixing/convenience related mods. And a couple of the more professional quest mods. Uses BOSS to optimise the load order.

A matter of time
A quality world map
Audio Overhaul for Skyrim
Auto unequip Ammo
Better Dialogue Controls
Double Cursor Fix
Dust Effects
Enhanced Wetness and Puddles
Falskaar - Quest
Helgen Reborn - Quest
Immersive Armors
Lush Trees and Grass
Moss Rocks
Natural Grass and Texture floor
Project Reality - Climates of Tamriel
Realistic Lighting Overhaul
Realistic Smoke and Embers
Realistic Sun for Climates of Tamriel
Skyrim Flora Overhaul
SkyUI
Undeath - Quest
Unofficial Skyrim Patches + DLC Patches
Vivid Landscapes - Cliffs and creeks
Vivid Landscapes - Rocking stones and mountains parallax
Warmer Magic lights
Wet and Cold

ENB series: TrueVision performance
SKSE

I obtain them all from Skyrim Nexus. Though I struggle to download anything from it at the moment. Either it is having problems or my computer doesn't like loading it's pages. lol

Anyway, there's my more important mods to give you some ideas but you can add a lot more to it if you have the time. Just always use BOSS or similar to make sure you're mods do not conflict and explode your game into a million tiny pieces of molten Throat of the World, or a CTD. Usually a CTD. :/

A couple body mods to make the people less ugly with or without underwear.

You can then get mods for clothes and armour to match their body shape

Jaysus swords for much less ugly weapons.

I don't use any texture graphical mods because my PC is not up to it, but The various unofficial patches are a good thing

And you need BOSS to sort everything in order.

Best advice I can give you is take your time and install them correctly. Use Tes5Edit and BOSS. Overhaul mods and Silly Level of Detail along with changes to lighting and SIMM are all must haves! Here is my list and I don't even have all the eye candy turned on...also AOS maudio mod is a MUST.

The only visual mod besides hi res textures that really wowed me was the purewaters water mod. There is competition now, but rest assured this is one spot where mods have completely pwned the original devs regardless of what you chose.

No, read "You do not have to purchase a package to complete registration." just continue to next step to register.
