IMPORTANT FOR MODDERS: Incase you didn't know
Theres actually a limit to how much you can mod your game. Its a 3.1 GB limit, if you exceed that limit, your game might start crashing. So if you have alot of mods like me, thats probably why you randomly crash.

I doubt this is true considering ive over 20Gb of mods installed - 287 and counting

Not 1 single issue

I think its more on your pc specs because i went past 3.1 LONG LONG ago

Does it not depend on how MUCH ram YOUR pc has? and if your using 32bit or 64bit?

Ive 8GB of ram and 64bit windows7 and i went past the 3.1gb mark a long time ago. I have tons of mods which take up HUGE amounts of ram and GB such as all of JackGa's stuff and also loads of high res outfits and textures and other files and not had 1 single issue yet

The only times i do CTD is the odd time i wear an outfit and it glitches. I think this has happened twice and i just removed the outfits and dont touch them. Only other crash i get is when i load up my save and it stays on the loading screen - this happens to people who DONT use mods as well

So i think this might just be scare mongering

It might depend on WHAT mods were used and if there clashing

Well, it might be. I mean I do have ALOT of mods, the only time I crash is seemingly when I enter 2 specific areas in the world (which i dont know the cause of) but still, I figured itd be safe to spread the word.
Cat Daddy 26 Jul, 2013 às 16:51 
I dont think it needs to be spread. I just get the impression its 1 guy scare mongering people or trying to get attention. I just get the feeling its BS because the games been out for 2 years and theres LOADS of mods out for it. Im sure during these 2 years there would have been 1 of us who would have found this piece of information out long ago by using to many mods

I just get the feeling all this is gona go is make certain people tell others what they should do were as before hand no one gave a crap and just modded like hell

If anything the whole crash issue depends on your pc and its specs. if your running a low end pc then expect crashes and lag because its ment to be a high end run game

Skyrim definately has a RAM limit. At it's core, Skyrim is a 32-bit game with a 2GB RAM limit. It was extended to 4GB using large address aware. Exceeding that limit will indeed lead to instability and crashing. However, having plenty of VRAM helps cope.

I had a lot of mods too before I removed them all, because my game was crashing, but I'm fairly sure it was only because some of the mods were not compatible.

I don't think gopher needs to employ attention seeking tactics. Before you comment further on the "problem" you may want to spend a few minutes watching the video.

Gopher isn't exactly someone who "seeks attention". He's pretty big int he modding community.

No, no, no. If more than 3.1 GB is loaded into your memory it crashes the game. Even though you have 8GB RAM, the game never uses that amount. The game engine tells your computer how much to load into memory. the only way to exceed that is texture replacers galore at insanely high resolutions. Remember that the graphics card has VRAM.
Cat Daddy 26 Jul, 2013 às 17:01 
thats great

All im saying is i doubt its to do with the ram because i went past 3.1 ages ago
Its more to do with the specs of the pc and WHICH mods your using which would be the more obvious choice

Try running Performance Monitor. I'd bet you aren't using as much as you think.

OT: It's good for people to be aware there may be a limit.

Yes, Kabacus agreed

I highly doubt you actually managed surpass 3.1gb of ram. Just because task manager says you are using 4GB or so of ram, doesn't mean Skyrim is. You have to take into account background processes and memory reserved for windows.
