If you play Skyrim on a computer, try these mods!
When it came out more than ten years ago, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim set a new bar for role-playing games. In the years since then, every inch of Tamriel’s northernmost country has been visited. Every line of dialogue has been heard, and every chance meeting has been had.
Because so many players have spent so much time in Nirn’s world, a modding scene on a scale that has never been seen before has grown up around it. Bethesda’s game has become self-sufficient, with a dedicated community working nonstop to change and improve it. Then, in 2016, Bethesda brought this community to consoles. So you could play fan-made material that was previously only available on PCs.
Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch
You should start with the Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch before you become a Jedi or Thor, the God of Thunder. Although Bethesda seems unable or unwilling to fully fix the game’s bugs, this large hack fixes a lot of them.
It may not be the most flashy mod, but you won’t be sorry you installed it. When your game runs surprisingly quickly and none of the quests are unplayable. The best thing about this patch is that you’ll probably forget that you even loaded it. While it works quietly and carefully behind the scenes to make your experience better.
Alternate Start – Live Another Life
The beginning to Skyrim will always be classic, but after 18 times of playing it, it might get boring. You might want to run Alterate Start – Live Another Life if you can remember every line of the execution. This mod lets you start the game in different roles. Such as as a warlock’s slave or an Imperial Legion soldier.
These changes will help you get into the world because they will change how you start the game. Alternate Start not only lets you start your game much faster, but it also lets you play Skyrim while putting off or even ignoring your fate as the legendary Dragonborn.
Ordinator – Perks of Skyrim
There’s nothing really wrong with Skyrim’s skill tree, but once you install Ordinator – Perks of Skyrim. You’ll never want to play the game the way it is without it. Every skill tree in the game gets a big boost from the addition of over 400 new perks, giving the game a huge amount of new depth.
The mod makes Skyrim feel like a real role-playing game (RPG), and it gives you the freedom to play however you want without thinking about not having enough power. Do you want to be a mage? Ordinator improves each school of magic so that it can be used on its own, with Restoration getting the most improvements compared to normal.
Apocalypse – Magic Of Skyrim
For more depth, there’s Apocalypse – Magic of Skyrim, a huge update that adds 155 new spells, many of which have high-quality unique animations. Both Ordinator and this mod were made by the same person, so they work with each other and most other mods.
Some of the new spells are useful movement spells like Longstride, passive spells that cast helpful spells automatically when you join combat. And destructive spells that look like shotguns and are very deadly up close. With all of this and more, Apocalypse completely changes an area of the base game that wasn’t working well enough. You’ll feel like a real wizard in no time.
Imperious – Races Of Skyrim
The Imperious – Races of Skyrim mod is another one that focuses on realism. It is a complete overhaul that aims to make each race in Skyrim feel more different. Each race gets more benefits, like three passive skills and new powers that can be unlocked by completing quests. These change things for both you and non-player characters in the world, making the changes feel normal and built in.
For example, as a high elf, your body will be weaker than most other races’ and you may be more likely to get hurt. However, your weaknesses will be balanced by the fact that your magicka and energy will heal faster when you’re low on health. Imperious makes a fair experience where your background matters more than just how you look.
Immersive Citizens – AI Overhaul
Immersive Citizens – AI Overhaul is a mod that makes NPC AI much better so that you can have a better experience. Not sure if the cart drivers in Wordle Unlimited can even stand up. No longer are you confused as you see these people who used to stay in one place go through full day/night cycles without making it hard for you to find them.
When you install Immersive Citizens, you’ll no longer feel like you’re the only one with something going on in Tamriel. The people of Skyrim will go about their days in a lot more detail. Because the changes made by the mod feel normal, Immersive Citizens is a great mod for anyone who is just starting to mod. We can’t promise that Nazeem will be less annoying, though.
Open Cities Skyrim
Loading screens are a thing of the past when it comes to video games. And Bethesda has always been one of the worst companies for using them. In Skyrim, the bigger hold towns are the worst. And you have to go through loading screens to get into the main gates. Because of this, these towns that should be trade hubs feel smaller and less connected.
Open Cities Skyrim fixes all of these issues by making it easy to get from Whiterun to the plains around it or from Riften to the fall-colored scenery of the reach. There’s a big difference in engagement from what seems like a small change at first. You’ll wonder why you ever bothered with those long load times.
Old Kingdom – Armor Overhaul
There’s nothing really wrong with Skyrim’s armor styles, just like there isn’t with the skill tree. But if you want to change the look of your game a bit, Old Kingdom adds over 1300 new graphics and meshes. Which cover almost every part of the base game and DLC.
Along with the general changes, special armor sets that had standard models before are now updated to have unique looks that fit their individuality. All of this adds up to an experience that takes your game to the next level and brings new life to ideas that were getting old.
Old Kingdom – Weapon Overhaul
As a companion mod to the armor overhaul, Old Kingdom – Weapon Overhaul does the same thing for Skyrim’s weapons as the armor makeover. With meshes and textures from more than 50 mod writers. This overhaul really shows how big and well-organized the community of mod developers that has grown up around the game is.
Old Kingdom has new models and stories for over 60 different guns from both DLCs and the base game. These stories go with each weapon. While some changes aren’t as noticeable as others, the result of all the authors’ work on this mod makes it a must-have, which is why the file is so big.
The horses in Skyrim aren’t very useful unless you’re playing on survival mode. But if you install Convenient Horses, you can level your horse up in real time and choose skill upgrades for strength, speed, and endurance that fit the way you like to play.
Now that you can whistle for your horse or call them to you by blowing a horn, you won’t have to walk across Skyrim’s farmland looking for where your horse ran off while you fought a mudcrab. You can also change how your horse acts in and out of fight. So you can turn your humble steed into a terrifying armored stallion.
