    I'm not too worried about retextures for the new content. Those can usually be thrown in at anytime since it's simply a retexture. I'm mostly thinking about other types of mods that alter the game. Since the best way to install those is for a fresh save.

    Also I picked it up from GMG, might as well for that price.

    Hmm I still need to give all these mods a try. Think I have tried a total of maybe 1 mod. Not even sure if I installed it right.

    Well, you go on another island east of Skyrim mainland.

    The whole atmosphere reeks of Morrowind nostalgia.

    I can't reveal anything more without spoiling it (or without Bethesda paying me promotion;) LOL :D ) but it's really great so far.

    Been getting sporadic CTD with Dragonborn.
    Sometimes it will run for 15 minutes sometimes it will run for hours.
    Not sure if it is a 13.2 beta 3 driver issue or the game.

    This DLC is in my opinion is with the money.

    One creature in Dragonborn reminds me of Return of the Jedi.

    Unless you already have it, Should get NMM (Nexus Mod Manager) It'll save you lots of headaches if you've been installing manually. Especially when you get a crap ton of mods running (I have a modest 83) and something conflicts its much easier to hit "deactivate" than it is to go looking for individual files

    Do the current textures mods work with Dragonborn or do they mess it up by replacing the new art with the Skyrim HD textures?

    Do we need Dragonborn specific HD textures packs now?

    Apparently there has been an official 1.5Gb HD texture pack update very recently.

    I'm just getting that update.

    Are you sure it's the HD texture pack?

    And... shouldn't Steam have asked whether to download it or not rather than make it an automatic download? It's not everyone who wants HD textures.. especially those whose graphics isn't adequate..

    It's the latest update for Skyrim I know of.
    Possibly auto-updated for people who have downloaded the HD texture pack before.

    I don't think I have ever had steam ask me for an update. It just downloads stuff automatically. There might be an option to turn this off though..

    There is in properties. But sometimes it seems to get overridden.

    Yeah, I have skyrim set to not update automatically, since some things like skse they have to make a new version for each major update. And then I see it downloading an update a week later and its set back to auto. It seems to ignore me...

    Its crashing more often then I'd like it too. Seeing as this is a fresh install I can't figure out if its the DLC or ENB.

    I'm getting sporadic crashes in Solstheim.
    Some times crashes within 15 minutes sometimes never.

    Forgot to mention, I have not run ENB through this whole character play through.
    Not even using high res texture DLC.

    Only mods I have are:-
    UNP body replacer
    UNP vanilla armor replacers
    HD textures for bodies and faces
    Female Mannequins

    Does anybody plan to play the Elder Scrolls Online? I heard that it might be a good game to play because of several special features, which can be seen here, especially for the Mega server system thing. It provides the biggest server ever that be able to support thousands player to play together at once without having a problem with lagging.

    I believe that ESO is going to be huge!.

    Maybe it's not the DLC but those mods that make problems..

    Hell no, unless it's just like skyrim with friends which i believe it's not so.
