Skyrim + is the mod package for your game!

Designed to with the aim of improving Skyrim's graphics, tweaking the gameplay and adding new content. All whilst maintaining a balance with the original game content and without ruining the spirit of the game. This collection is perfect for everyone. Whether you are looking to extend the game, or if you just want a solid set of mods to start with this is the pack for you!

This is an ongoing list of ONLY polished and bug free mods that make many improvements such as:
- Adding many many new craftable balanced weapons and armour
- Adding variations of weapons and armour that NPC's use
- Adds more high level NPC's for when the player goes above level 35
- Revamping the balance of the magic system
- Changes the focus on dragons by:
- Slightly increasing the rate at which they appear (not to much!)
- Allowing them to drop enchanted items
- Allowing you to spend dragon souls for perks (using a well balanced trade in system)
- Increases the rewards for bounties, you WILL find yourself searching for bounties as they are now worth doing at any level!
- Tweaks the graphics and weather
- Adds map markers for the houses you own
- Tweaks the landscape
- Upgrades the sounds in game, and when they can be heard
- Plus other changes!

Overall this mod greatly increases the amount there is to do in game, It also massively increases the length of time you can play as each character. The dragon changes are especially fun as they truly make it worth going dragon hunting whenever you can and the end game NPC's mean there is still something to do and challenge you when you reach the high levels! In fact a lot of the changes are based around improving skyrim's random encounters and NPC/Quest generation systems to provide lots more great gaming moments. I cannot stress enough how much these mods add to the whole game experience!

All the mods that are listed are compatible with each other, they all compliment each other and, most importantly, they all are in a polished working state!

I recommend that you use all these mods together, however the choice is up to you. You can include which ever mods you want!

I also want to give a shout out to the amazing modders who made each of these mods. You have each done an amazing job! Keep up the good work!

These mods work really really well on a difficulty that challenges you, maybe take a look at upping your difficulty!

Faster Vanilla Horses
Created by Jov

paid mods wouldnot be the end of steam or the modding community. and not all mods are payworthy to be honest-. some of them are defenitiv payworthy and the authors put alot effort and free time in it and it is their work and they should get a loian for it if they decide to. in this spirit i say honestly and from the bottom of my heart. and as gamer from the start.
