Lore-Friendly Visual and Overall Game Enhancement Collection

Description
Here is a collection of mods that add visual enhancements as well as many lore-friendly weapons and locations to the world of Skyrim. I have hand-picked and selected these amongst the greatest mods available on the Steam Workshop. All of these mods are compatible with one another, and there are many which need Dawngaurd, Dragonborn and Hearthfire DLC's. There are unofficial fixes and mesh improvements. My goal was to add to the game, but not take away the original feel of it. And for those of you asking, I purposely left out "Towns and Villages Enhanced: Riften" because Riften is supposed to be a rather droll, dark and poor area, and I thought it made it look too nice.

I use all of these mods. They work perfectly fine for me. Are you having any problems? Have you tried starting a new game? WIth this many mods, it's a good idea to start a clean slate.

Anyone have any problems with their game crashing after adding these mods?
ohheyimluke  [author] Oct 6, 2013 @ 8:35am 
I made an edit to this collection today. I removed two outdated mods, and replaced them with the correct, up to-date ones. If you have Dawngaurd and Dragonborn DLC, you'll want to make the switch.

Mods Removed:
Heavy Armory - New Weapons
Heavy Armory - Dawnguard (Outdated)

Replaced with:
Heavy Armory - New Weapons: Dragonborn Edition
Heavy Armory - New Weaons: Dawnguard Addon
