    base textures or Skyrim HD the big change is what ENB can do paired with some changes to the specular maps. But its probably skyrim HD not sure havent fired up skyrim in a while and have no mods installed right now.

    part of signing up to the nexus also allows you comment on mods if your having problems with it and endorse them if you like them endorsed mods go on a top mod chart from most to least endorsed

    I never understood the obsession with visual mods for games. Skyrim already looks incredible. If you are standing around admiring the landscape wishing that you saw a few less jaggies in the rock textures then you are not playing the game right.

    It's not just about visual, it's an immersion thing, when I stare at something that has a low resolution texture my eyes begin to bleed and cannot unsee the uglyness in it.

    Also those memory tweaks\files help when loading mods that increase cell\npcs\scripts count so it's actually a gameplay enhancement too, not only visual.

    Also everyone lives a game experience in a different way: If it's not how you think it is supposed to be it doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong, it's just different :)

    trust me, add a 4K texture pack and its a whole new game. i havent gone overboard with the graphics mods (just that one), but its like going from low to high all over again.

    It's just people making the game the way they enjoy it. I know when I get into modding I get deep into it and probably go overboard. But just being able to make a game the way I want it to be is very exciting to me. You don't need to stare directly at textures to notice it, sometimes things will catch your eye and make you think, and not having that they is something extremely easy to fix since texture mods are the absolute easiest type of mod to install, why not if you got the computer for it?

    I'd say add gameplay enhancement mods and its a whole new game.

    One fundamental mod is the bandit overhaul and mobs AI enhancement, makes combat much harder and much funnier, imo.

    it's the same game, just with 4k textures.

    i get the immersion aspect of visual mods, but i don't get the obsession.

    Eh, it's kinda like people's obsession with different flavors of Linux, and making the load just the way you like it. Obsession.
