Description
A collection of many mods that I use to make Skyrim more interesting and better looking.

All mods here are Vanilla Skyrim, if you have DLC make sure you download the additional packs of some mods such as Archery Improved to make sure the DLC is modded as well.

Some mods require the SKSE (Skyrim Script Extender), so make sure to download it from the link below, install, and run through the skse_loader.exe file. You can also add this executable in steam or just run it from a desktop shortcut. If you don't, some mods will not function properly.
http://skse.silverlock.org/


There are some mods not available in the workshop, so you can get those at the Skyrim Nexus and install them manually.
