This mod expands upon Skyrim's late-game gameplay. Many enemies in the game do not have levels higher than 25-30, which means that the game's difficulty can drop after level 35 - right when the player is getting strongest! This mod adds a large quantity of enemies to Skyrim's autoleveling system for level 25+.

With these higher level enemies available in most regions, the game will continue to be a challenge in the later levels without needing to increase the game's difficulty setting.

Love it. I get one shotted by demigod so many times but at least now there's a challenge. I use it with the uncap mod for player skills/level.

With full daedric armor and a daedric greatsword, improved and enchanted to do 300+ dmg at a low level like 30 makes the game incredibly stale and unchallenging, unless I want to up the ante to master or legendary, which doesn't add genuine challenge, but rather getting 1-2 hit by mobs that should be easy and doing practically no damage. This is definitely a better alternative than purposely not upgrading my gear!

I'm assuming this would help your character level up in combat ??? (any feedback for my dumb question would def make me want this mod =) I'm at level 55 now with smithing legendary and my light armor,one handed and archery stats are insane! that there isn't much challenge in battles (except mages) and its bothering me cauuse I rarelly level up in any type of combat anymore??

This mod has made Skyrim way more exciting because I have also noticed that I could 1-hit killing most mobs before but now it takes a while and I like it this way more! Nicely done!

I just downloaded this, haven't tried it yet. I'm not too familiar with modding anything, but I thought I would try to make a suggestion (seeing as the max level isn't 81 or whatever it was because of legendary skills now). increasing the level of monsters will be nice and keep the game interesting. By the look of it, when I hit level 70 I will have the same problem, killing most enemies in 1-3 hits.

My suggestion: Is it possible to add more animals to attack you at one time? Like, wolves only attack me in pairs. Adding like 1-4 wolves ontop of giving wolves a buff would make them a little bit more menacing.

One time I fast traveled and I had the following attack me:
1 Dragon
2 Spriggens
2 Sabercats
2 Bears
3 Vampires
3 Bandits

Any adventurer can take those out normally one at a time. Very rarely do you get jumped by so much. This can be overwhelming (if it is possible to increase rate of enemy spawn, it should also be said that they target you as a priority)

How do you tell if this is working. You got any console commands that can help with this?

this is one of the best mods i 've seen because after i got to level 35 in Skyrim i one hit everyone and the game started to become boring

I'm not sure, but I think this mod might have a strange conflict with "realistic combat" mod. This mod seems to spawn a lot of new critters everywhere and the realistic combat mod makes it to where critters who aggro on you don't stop agroing on you. So, anyway, I'm getting mobs spawning on me inside the Winterhold library. You know, the average polar bear invasion of the mage college. Super fun. Also, mobs from accoss the map will agro on me, stealth or no stealth, LOS or no LOS.

You should grab SkyTweak which allows you customize all difficulties as you see fit... that and hundreds of other useful tweaks!
