    Skyrim was a quite pretty game when it initially launched. Before the devs even launched any mod tools, people have come out with some pretty amazing Visual Tweaks. Let's see what some of you guys pulled off

    I know this isn't a Graphics Mod, but it's awesome. It's a mod that changes the noise your character makes when he casts Level 3 Force Shout. :wink:

      http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/content/modmanager/ Lets you install most mods without messing with loose files, and I believe also lets you disable or uninstall them if you find them to not work for you.

      Right now the only mods I'm using are visual tweaks to enhance character appearance, and a few .ini edits to fix shadow issues. I haven't had much time to see what's new in the CK yet, so I haven't made my own mods like I did with FO:NV.

      This is the only mod I've downloaded so far, it supposedly makes the game look better with AA turned on, and I've also noticed an increase in FPS. Not bad.

      Once I get my new laptop, I will go nuts with all the ultra graphics mods. How well will a GTX 580M (2GB GDDR5) and an i7 2760QM 2.4Ghz cope?

      Speaking of performance increases...

      For those of you who use NVIDIA cards, try updating your drivers. The latest one gives quite a significant boost to performance with Skyrim.


      With a GTX 580, you should have no issues on Ultra, especially with the latest driver for it.

      Same. I'm a total noob and have no idea how to mod any of the Elder Scrolls. If someone wants to post a noob tutorial of how to install mods maybe with some example ones, that would be awesome!!

      It mostly depends on the type of mod used.

      Loose files mods like most visual enhancements are done through replacing textures or increasing the resolution of them. Those types will get installed into their respective folders, while uninstalling them involves deleting those files from the folders. Other mods will be "Bethesda Plugin Data Files" or .esp for short. These tend to be mostly just in-game changes that don't require the need for additional files. Installing them is as simple as dropping the .esp into the Data folder, and enabling the mod through the game launcher. Sometimes you will find ones that do require loose files, due to the mod adding in new items or places that require additional textures or models. If you're really unsure about installing the mods yourself, you can use the Nexus Mod Manager or Steam Workshop. Both of those will install the files to the appropriate locations and allow you to update or remove them as needed.

      Implementing mods any game made by Bethesda is a simple click away. As a matter of fact, their games are extremely mod friendly. 95% of all mods will go into the Data folder, of which will never replace any files to screw up your game, how to uninstall them is also easy, you can either deactivate the mod or delete the mod completely.

      There is a tool that works best with mods and that's called "Nexus Mod Manager". Every game Bethesda published from Oblivion on are compatible with this program. If you guys need I can make a tutorial

      My game already looks pimp. I spent all that money to have this computer just to play this game like cake. Are the Mods crazy difference visually? I already think it's almost *too* detailed.

      Check out the screenshots for this ENB mod and tell me if you think the game is detailed enough already.
