    Skyrim was the main reason I opted for a 4Gb 670 over the 2GB one.

    Before my reinstall I used to run it at Ugrid 11, but for some weird reason I started having very frequent crashes (like every 2 minutes or so) only in Solstheim (and not in mainland Skyrim). Now I started again from Ugrids 7 planning to move up very slowly.


    I'll have a look at that.
    Wow what mods do you have to get such high Vram? All the texture ones I had (before starting over) never got me above 4GB for sure (I never measured it actually but my fps were always in the 50-60 range..

    I noticed that with my giant texture pack uninstalled ugrids=11 is actually manageable.

    After I install that pack then the highest value I can load is 9.

    Basically every single Nexus 4K texture you can get your hands on :)

    I get 60 steady FPS with 8X AA.

    What do you use to limit your fps to 60 and vsync? Obviously I'm getting enormous texture flickering and objects are vibrating insanely, because the game is vsyncing at 120fps. Everybody use MSI AB? Didnt really want to use that.

    Which skin do you use? On mine it's on the bottom part of the application, under FRAME RATE TARGET, you enable it and then you can select the FPS limit

    Yes, in my opinion.

    I've finished the Dragonborn MQ, but there's a whole island to explore and many side-quests. Consider it like Skyrim's equivalent of Oblivion's Shivering Isles EP...

    Dragon Born is definitely worth it. I had a lot of fun with it.

    Yeah, $10 isn't the best deal ever but I'm sort of itching to play Skyrim anyway so I went for it.

    Crap. I missed skyrim DLC 50% again. Now it's only at 30%. I'm gonna wait the rest of sale and see if it drops again. I've been waiting for it forever!

    its interesting but not as great as other mods that are being worked on have been worked on. Essentially the kids effort is commendable but he needs to keep improving on it and adding more content before people hale it as super amazing awesomeness.

    got dragonborn 50% sale last summer sale, tho ive only visited it (soltsheim). Getting back in playing again, updated my mods and added new mods.

    Also, ive noticed that some of the enemies i encounter has no animation, their model just moves around with a default pose, what could be causing it?

    Could be caused by a custom skeleton or animation.

    Is the game completely vanilla or you've modded it?

    I've been so busy for the last couple weeks, it's rediculous. I haven't had 15 minutes on my computer to play anything. Finally got all the DLC in the summer sales, kept missing it every time it was on sale. Deleted my data folder and re downloaded. It was around 20gb without DLC and I didn't even remember what alot of it was. clean slate
