    I've never modded. How should I go about it? I mostly want to get ones that make it prettier.

    head to skyrim nexus, look at the mod you want, instructions follow instructions on a per mod basis :toast:


    Most of them you simply move folders to the appropriate location.

    Others require more work but that's what the instructions are for.

    i recommend downloading the nexus mod manager, and using that. most mods have a "download with manager" option, and it's imo a much easier way of handling all those files.

    Yeah though Kurgan shied me away from that, at least at that point a couple few weeks ago, for a good, specific reason(s) which I can't quite remember now. Maybe he can fill us in again...

    Here it is:

    I also found another tip -- if you can't clean your house in Windhelm from the blood and body-parts go in the console and type df492.disable

    I just got another bug. I just did the companions quest and returned back to whiterun. When I left whiterun I saw a dragon and went after it. I went to draw my weapons and couldn't. I couldn't do anything i.e no menu, wait, attack or jump. I decided to load a previous save and seen I'm now a skeever. I'm afraid to leave whiterun now just to be turned back again.

    Anyone see if theres a fix to this or a way around it? I've been googling my butt off trying to figure it out.

    Have you tried this perhaps?
    It works for me, should do the trick for 59xx series too, you could force a profile with RadeonPro too

    Also this works too, taken from the 4GB Patch readme.
    Going to put it on a spoiler since it is long :)

    I've read on the web that Skyrim is very CPU-Bound and that the main thing that is stressing the CPU is shadows...

    Is this correct?

    Also, should I decide to turn off the shadows (or reduce shadow quality). Do you guys think it will relieve the CPU enough to allow for a higher FPS ???

    Yes, shadows are rendered by the CPU at this stage and thus removing them you'd see an FPS increase, anyway your CPU is up to the task.
    I suppose you are having troubles in cities, right?

    Well...

    - All my settings are maxed
    - Most of my .ini files are tweaked for MAX image quality
    - I'm HEAVILY modded

    And since I've installed the "lush trees" and "lush grass" and "skyrim Flora Overhaul" mods, I've seen a little FPS decrease...

    Enough for me to consider turning off shadows. With the Rig I have, I expect to play everything maxed @ a solid 60 FPS, but this game is poorly optimized...

    so I'm thinking "heck... if I turn off shadows and reduce the amount of stress on the CPU to achieve a solid 60 FPS (everywhere) with all the beautiful texture mods I have, why not?..."

    Have you touched the uGrids setting? And if so which value have you given it?
    uGrids has a huge impact on FPS, especially if you increase it over 7.

    And yes, turning off shadows would increase performance but at which visual cost? I know that shadows are pixelated but I wouldn't play without them, it's a personal matter, anyway :)

    It wasn't loading all my texture packs. I started double checking and a lot of them weren't being loaded, so I stopped using it. It is in beta and maybe that is fixed now though.
