I have about 100 Skyrim mods running on my computer and have spent allot of time trying to discover the ideal collection of mods that all work together without bugs or crashes of any kind. This work is constantly updated as I discover outdated mods or mods that fail to initiate as per the mod description. Remember to keep an eye on these collections as changes are often made in favour of stability of the entire collection.
To get my full gaming experience don’t use the “Subscribe All” button, but rather “subscribe” to each in the order provided, making sure to move some mods according to the “Special Notes” in each collection. Make sure you have a fully updated copy of Skyrim as of the 1.5 update (release to Steam in March 2012) or later. If you have any mods not from this collection then you will have to check for incompatibilities yourself. However, the point of this collection is that I’ve already done the work for you. Lastly, please take the time and effort to compliment the authors of these excellent works.

If anyone wishes to take this and add on to it they can, but there are already other mods that fix many more locations. I recommend Realistic Lighting Overhaul if you want a really good lighting experience. You can get that mod at Skyrim Nexu...
This mod is intended to fix the various data issues with weapons and armor in Skyrim (plus other minor fixes with creatures and such). The mod will almost certainly get smaller as Bethesda releases additional patches in the future.
