[UPDATE] Nord's Sexy Skyrim 2.0 (Extreme Graphics and Subtle Gameplay Enhancements)
Nord's Sexy Skyrim is a collection of graphics and gameplay enhancing mods that subtly change the game experience, but not to the extent of ruining the feel of the game. The graphics of course are maximized.

<<<<< READ >>>>>

Here is another list of mods available on the Skyrim Nexus that are not on Steam:

Project Reality (Best mod out there yet) -
> Climates Of Tamriel - Weather/lighting -
>> The version to download is the Nexus Mod Manager Climates Of Tamriel_Full Version

Elaborate Textiles NPC Clothing Retexture -
Finer Dust -
Immersive Armors -
No More Blocky Faces -
Proper Length Arrows -
Spells Will Give Off Light -
Unique Booze Bottles HD (for the Nord inside you) -

CInematic Lighting ENB Mod (instructions below) -

It is HIGHLY recommended that you get the Cinematic Lighting ENB mod by HeliosDoubleSix on the Nexus website to make Skyrim the sexiest.

Please DO NOT install the Cinematic LIghting ENB mod with the Nexus Mod Manager. Install it manually by dragging and dropping the downloaded file into the Skyrim directory in the Skyrim folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim)

Next, set the bFloatPointRenderTarget in skyrim.ini to: bFloatPointRenderTarget=1

And finally, change these values to your preference (1 or 0):

Note for Ambient Occlusion and perhaps other things to look right you need to set
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1 (mentioned above, it's important)
iMultiSample=1 (MSAA may duff up SSAO)
bFXAAEnabled=1 (If you want to get rid of jaggies)
sD3DDevice="ENB" (which should exist and already be set after using the Skyrim launcher once)
And while you are at it these are worth adding:


Update Log:
3/18/12 - Removed "Lush Grass" modification. Conflicts with "More Grass" in terms of game performance.
3/18/12 - Added "That's Ice." Makes the ice sexier.
3/18/12 - Removed "Complete Skyforge" modification. The Skyforge is already fixed with the "Detailed Cities" mod.
3/26/12 - Added Static Mesh Improvement Mod, Lush Trees, Lush Grass. Both Lush mods no longer cause a big hit to game performance, but the SMIM has a huge impact. Expect a 15-25% decrease in performace. Again, only add SMIM if your computer can handle it.
7/14/12 - Collection has been revised
