A Better Look
The best set of mods to make your game look and feel the best it can be. These are cosmetic mods that fixes small bugs and make the game look and feel much beter.

There are still a lot of great mods on that cant be found on the workshop.

To give an idea of other good mods to get there are:
Natural Eyes
A Quality Wold Map
Immersive Armors

I hope everyone likes this collection, these are only cosmetic and not game changing.

"Better Females by Bella" - CORE FILES
Created by ZeroFrag
I liked this mod a lot but was annoyed when I could only find a customized version on the workshop. This one is the default version of the mod including Bella's textures and makeup unlike the custom version that is located elsewhere on the workshop.

"Better Females by Bella" - Less Makeup
Created by ZeroFrag
This is an add on for the "Better Females by Bella" Core pack. It removes the makeup and leaves it more like the vanilla Skyrim version.

BellaGail describes this version as follows...
"Less Makeup version removes most make up from face for less of a "g...

Argonian Raptor Feet
Created by artifex
I felt something was missing from Argonians-- for a race of primeval lizard people, they seem awfully human-shaped. So, I made new Argonian-specific models for all of the boots and shoes in the game with a look inspired by the always popular velociraptor....

Faster Vanilla Horses
Created by Jov
Like many, I found Skyrim's horses to be unrealistically and unreasonably slow. Travel by horse was hardly faster than by foot, making it unrewarding.

Horse speed and gallop-time has been given a significant -yet balanced- boost, for a more realistic (a...

I like this collection but for my Lightning Mod to work with Climates of Tamriel installed you also need to include my small patch mod for Lightning support within COT.

That link will bring you to where you can download the Nexus Mod Manager (NMM), with that you can download mods from the Nexus. Once you have downloaded a Mod you need to open the NMM and turn the mod on. Once that is done all you need to do is start Skyrim and play.
Some Mods need alittle extra to get them goes, just read the discription and see if its something you want to deal with.
Most Mod will work on their own, so it's realy painless to use.

Better females by Bella should give you the face and eyes, the hair mod i'm using right now is Apachii's Skyhair found here . With all the changes I to the game I need to go through these mods again and give it a good update.
