Description
The obvious mods anyone would want. This improves the games immersive values. You will need Dawnguard, HearthFires, Dragonborn, and the DLC high textures pack.

You need ApachiiSkyhair full (latest) and ApachiiSkyhairfemale 1.2

You'll also need Breezehome-hf-CTD-fix.

Highly Recommend getting Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE), and Sky+ UI in order to better utilize the mods.


Settings required within player files:

Within SkyrimPrefs.ini

fShadowBiasScale=0.25 ( higher the value, the less refractional issue of the shadow glitch )
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1
iShadowMapResolutionSecondary=2048 ( or 4096 )
iShadowMapResolutionPrimary=2048 ( or 4096 )

If you are 100% certain you have 4 cores on your cpu then go to skyrim.ini

under [General]
add: iNumHWThreads=4


This should be everything. :)
