xXxDOYLExXx's Collection For Hardcore Graphics and Gameplay
Close to a Hundred Mods Working together in 6 Steps!
This will change your Skyrim experience forever! As the title states, the aim is to bring a hardcore graphics and hardcore features into the game. There will be tons more battles, better graphics, and tons of new features to immerse yourself into the game. It requires little effort to get these 100 or so mods going together as long as you read everything.

I'm using a single a high end video card ( Nvidia 680), something like a Nvidia 570 "might", I stress might, be okay this collection, this is not meant for a sub-par computer. However, you can gain some FPS via not implementing the ini tweaks, and removing any vegetation or high rez type mods.


I WILL NOT guarantee this collection will work with other mods, other ini tweaks, or if you fail to READ! Report if you find anything conflicting and I'll update the list. It will not handle loading all of these into an already saved game.


Download this ENB, Follow instructions, I download option A along with most optionals. Do as follows and install the ini files (set them as read only) etc.

I used Optional "Normal" Depth of Field Pack.

If you have any questions about this, ask in the comments. I recomend testing this out before continuing with the mods.
2.) Subscribe to my collection, THEN go to step 3
3.) Mods to Add That's Not on Steam, REQUIRED DOWNLOAD THESE!!!

The mods labed with *NMM should be downloaded using Nexus Mod Manager
Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE)
Basically install, and run this exe instead of your old one. A helpful hint is to link the exe to your
non-steam game files for easy launching. Keep in mind you need to use your old exe to download steam collection files.

SkyRealism - Capacity

SkyRealism - Encumbrance
Frostfall - Hypothermia Camping Survival

Home Construction and Decoration

Cloaks of Skyrim

Climates Of Tamriel
Follow instructions, I downloaded most of the packs. DOWNLOAD the winter edition! ADDS SO MUCH!

Magic Duel - Reborn

True Yield
-This mod is completly optional for you. I like it personally. Follow directions on link if you want to add.

Realistic Lighting Overhaul

Deadly Mutilation
(Core and CBBE PACK)

Torch Arrows

Brighter Campfires

Populated - Download all three of his mods.
-NOTE Download the redux version for the Forts and Towers, or it will crash!

Brighter Torches

No Limit for lifting Objects and Bodies

Glowing Ore Veins 300

Interesting NPCs
*And the update after activating the first one first, overwrite files if asked, and select no to upgrade, do normal install.

WARZONES - Civil Unrest
-Summon the god, and set spawn rates to low. Otherwise it will crash.

Winter Is Coming - Cloaks
If asked for a compatability patch, select Main


*Do not download ASH VERSION!


Skyrim Bigger Trees

Bury The Dead

I reccomend this Lydia mod [optional]

Convenient Horses
-Don't enable dynamic speed on mod menu

-Use options on menu in-game for frostfall etc.

HD Enhanced Terrain

Brighter Torches with Bigger Radius

Sounds of Skyrim [Download all three + the compatability patch for Realistic Lighting & Climates]
4.) Open the Skyrim launcher and let the subscribed mods download
5.) Use BOSS to sort order your mods. LOAD ORDER IS EVERYTHING.

Run this AFTER you let the subscribed mods download.
Essentially just extract it anywhere and run the GUI. Click run and it will sort your mods automatically for you. THEN go to your data file list when you launch and click ENABLE to the mods it disabled, because it disables unrecognized mods!

6.) Follow the pointers and tips below:

Most mods can be turned on and configured in the menu when you press escape. There should be a new label called mod configuration.

For the hunger mods like IMCN I recommend using the "Basic" hunger system, advance is just tedious. The items will be labeled in your inventory as IMCN items. Configure it when you start the game by clicking the items in your inventory. You have to select these objects in your inventory before you see the effects of being hungry etc. Again in order to activate this mod you have to configure it via the IMCN items in your food inventory.

!!!!!!!!!!VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!
-Use your extra bags and horse saddle for items, this is help solve the more realistic emcumberance with these mods!

-Frostfall Adds craftable camping gear, you go to Powers/Survival, then use the POWER to bring up the crafting menu.

-You can craft a weather sense ring from Frostfall to ping the weather to you once in a while.

-Long story short if you don't want to tediously read each mod, look at your inventory when you start look at the active effects and powers. Just tinker and look at what the effects do.

-Activate most of the mods via the main menu, it now had a mod configuration menu button as I said before..


If you need me to expand on any directions for the sake of helping you, go ahead and ask. I do not mind helping out!

-It's required to have all expansions, otherwise it will CTD.
Will update if I find any.

Rovert66  [author] Nov 22, 2012 @ 10:20am 
Good to hear Brockasaurus. This collection's compatability is meant to be played with the expansions, I believe that is the one and only mod that requires Dawnguard. If you do not have Dawnguard, that would probably be the reasoning. If you click that mod, the mod creator has a vanilla version of it. I will put it in my description wtih the link to it for others to be aware of this, thanks!
Brockasaurus Nov 22, 2012 @ 8:59am 
Went through every mod one at a time and I found the culprit. Auto Equip Ammo was crashing me out for some reason. Removed it from my game and now everything runs fine.
Brockasaurus Nov 22, 2012 @ 6:33am 
Still having same issue. HAve been using Boss from begining as you suggested. Ive been using this collection in all its forms since for many months now. I havent ever had a problem until now. Game runs fine after installing all non steam mods. It's not unil worskshop mods are added am I having the problem. Reason I asked for load order is due to the fact that I've had problems hwith Boss in the past but before when I ordered mods myself everything would work fine which is whats leading me to believe It's a an issue with boss thatsd causing me a load order problem.
Rovert66  [author] Nov 21, 2012 @ 7:36pm 
@Brockasaurus: There is really no need to have a load order list, simply run BOSS as described in the directions. It does it all for you automatically. Doesn't get easier than that! Simply follow the link provided, extract it to a folder anywhere (I just made a folder called "BOSS" in the skyrim folder" and run the GUI. It will automatically arrange it all for you, and you just need to re-enable the mods on your data list when you launch the game for the first time after that, as it will uncheck some of them. Let me know if this helps.
Brockasaurus Nov 21, 2012 @ 5:51am
