The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Not enough ratings
Making Skyrim feel 100x better!
Make Skyrim a greater experience by fixing it up and improving everything that didn't even need to be improved!

Might as well fight flies

Ever notice derpy bandits with bows like to fire them in your face but when you loot them they have The Axe of Mega-Doom™ and you wonder “Why didn’t they use this?”
Well now these walking scarecrows get a brain and put thought into their hack-n-slash methods! Plus there are extra types of weapons for you and them to use and loot!


Tired of the fact that all there is to being Dragonborn is you’re able to shout at people?
Well now you can use those harvested Dragon souls you sucked up to buy perks or even hoard them to increase your Health, Stamina, Magic and increase Defence!

Realism… HARDCORE!!!

Ever wonder if there is a use for food and mead (That’s old timey beer) besides healing 3 HP
Well you can give them a purpose with hunger and thirst! You can even have a use for beds with sleeping!
(Don’t worry; you can turn it off if it’s too hard to maintain human necessities)

Identity Theivery

Find it weird that you can walk into town dressed in concealing clothes and when you break a law, they know it was you? (Even though there is NO way they can tell your identity)
Well now you can hide your identity with that armor (Example: Nightingale Armor) and since the Dark Brotherhood is a bunch of killers, guards will know what you’re up to if you walk around willy-nilly in your murderous attire!

Murder is FUN (Not literally)

Even wonder how guards know you killed someone without the use of forensics and can track you down better than Batman?
Well now there’s an investigation so you can dump that body in the river and nobody will be the wiser of your dirty deeds!

The small things matter

Have a nit-picky appetite for beautiful environment but don’t want to ruin your graphics card? Think Thieving is boring and repetitive with Breaking and Entering just to steal sweet rolls? Wanna find the loot Mercer Frey stole? Thieves guild a little to empty? Don’t know if you read that book? What to harvest loot for metals? Brynjolf asked you to join the Theives Guild because you walked up to him? Villiagers just walk up to dragons and fist its face just to get slaughtered? Don’t want to kill Paarthurnax? Better perks? Raptor feet? Werewolves? Kitty Cat feet? Too cold and can see your breath?
Well there are mods to fix the small things of Skyrim to make it a better experience!

Now hopefully you can have a better experience playing in the land of Skyrim and feel more immersed along with having FUN!

Plaese like and favorite to show this collection made your experience in Skyrim better and comment if you have suggestions to make the experience even better :)

Argonian Raptor Feet

I felt something was missing from Argonians-- for a race of primeval lizard people, they seem awfully human-shaped. So, I made new Argonian-specific models for all of the boots and shoes in the game with a look inspired by the always popular velociraptor....
