There's some mods in the collection that can help, yes. You may need other ones though, not sure.
Brainstorm104 Sep 5, 2015 @ 1:43pm 
does this collection really make your game look like the picture at the top or do you need an enb for that?
TheHyde  [author] Jun 23, 2012 @ 11:57am 
Thanks JBSchroeds, I know that some people had some questions about it and I really appreciate the heads-up. :)
JBSchroeds Jun 17, 2012 @ 3:45pm 
Hi, I just saw that you had included my Complete Mundane Overhaul mod in your collection. A few things people need to be wary of:
1) I strongly recommend reading the description on the mod if you are interested in using it. It has the potential to significantly change your game experience and you really need to know what you are getting into.
2) It has an item breakdown feature that has the same functionality as Realistic Ingot Recovery. I would recommend running only one or the other, and never both.
3) The scope of the mod is...large. I'll be doing a big update to it in a few days that is going to push the number of changes from ~2,700 to well over 3,000 entries. Anybody running the mod really needs to put it first in their load order. The scope alone means it will have conflicts with a lot of different mods. By placing it first in the load order other mods will be able to make their changes and should still work properly.
TheHyde  [author] Jun 14, 2012 @ 4:35pm 
I think one thing I am going to do is cut back a bit on the number of mods I have in this collection, because 100+ seems like a bit much lol
TheHyde  [author] Jun 14, 2012 @ 4:20pm 
K, thanks for the info Wolfe, i'll get to it. :)
Wolfe Jun 14, 2012 @ 8:55am 
NPC use ammo conflicts with JBS

Complex needs does not like enhanced gameplay.

Detailed outskirts/cities conflicts with the lighting mods that add torches etc. to cities, so they never get added.


Smash locks etc. doesn't seem to like dynamic merchants on one single entry.

Distant detail and treeplanting don't like eachother on two similair entries

Laterns of skyrim + Reduced greeting distance (popular mod) for some reason conflict on greeting distance.


And many, many more incompatibitlies

Check it out yourself with the TESMM and do the compatibility check, this is taking too long.



I also can't even start my game with these mods on, so I ain't checking what will semi-work.
Wolfe Jun 14, 2012 @ 8:55am 
Enhanced gameplay hates alot of entries in JBS, Smithing + Realism, some of the WATER mod... better hunting, a little.

Darker caves/worlds/whatever hates other shader mods like RCM and better weather that makes additions to shaders like Realistic lightning etc.


Craftable gold coins is bonked by the crafting mods including JBS


Better water goes vs WATER mod

Better hunting hates enhanced and JBS


Mastercraft (not from this compilation) not compatible with JBS


DUEL doesn't play nice with Crimson tide because of some fighting skills and perks.

Wolfe Jun 14, 2012 @ 8:55am 
Marriage patch needs to be loaded (in it's own order) after the overhaul patch because they overwrite the same entity.

Overhaul patch hates most mods, including enhanced gameplay & Smithing realism and it's own internal overhaul additions (Weight overhaul patch vs jbs_combined, all belonging to the JBS overhaul patch itself!), smithing extended, craftable scrolls etc.


Extended crafting/Realism crafting/Mastercrafting/JBS Overhaul/Enhanced Gameplay/Ingot Recipe recovery(Whatever) all conflict with eachother on several entries so which one is more important should be decided by the user itself.

DFG's sound mod conflicts with anything that changes the weapons that added these sounds, so the sounds will never end in the game and any changes other mods make regarding damage and stuff won't work if the DFG mod is prefered.

Handyman does not like bashing locks OR marriage mod, for some reason.


Wolfe Jun 14, 2012 @ 8:54am 
I also loaded some mods from the Krazy Kombat collection because they seemed awesome.

Kerplunk is already put in the WATER plugins.

Critical hit + No Sneak sounds change the same entries, so one takes out the sneak critical hit sounds and the critical hit sound adds it to sneaking.

Textures/RCRN etc. all edit the shaders and such so one should probably pick what's the best for them, and which textures they like better because one texture pack will overwrite the other.
