WELCOME TO THE SKYRIM MODS AND TWEAKS THREAD - NEW 2020

VERY IMPORTANT

Add [Launcher] bEnableFileSelection=1 to the
My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini file before Data Files in Skyrim Launcher for ESP Mods

FOR FURTHER TWEAKS SUCH AS FOV BY NEIL79:

CONSOLE COMMAND TWEAKS

( (To open the console press the button to the left of number 1 on your keyboard, press it again to close) ) - Tilde Key

"player.forceav carryweight xxxx" example = player.forceav carryweight 5000. I can confirm this one works, I also tried two other codes for this previously which were "player.setav carryweight x" and "player.modav carryweight", they both worked in-game but once you quit out and logged back in they no longer worked, so "player.forceav carryweight xxxx" is the only code that actually works and sticks.

"FOV 95" Use the console command and type "FOV 95" for a fov of 95, or any number you wish. Make sure to save afterwards so it sets it every time!

GUIDE USED AS A BASE LINE FROM : (HERE)

WHEN A MOD IS INSTALLED ALWAYS START THE GAME UP - NEW GAME - TEST !


1) Download and install mod manager Mod Organizer 2. Do not install mods manually. The guide contains notices regarding some exceptional cases when you'll need to install some mod/part of mod manually, but for the 99.9% of cases - always use mod manager.

2) Download and install SKSE. If you allready have it - great. If no - install it. It's obligatory.SKSE is [essential]. Stability mods are also working through it, as well as vastly majority of amazing gameplay mods. Consider it a basic invisible evolution element of Skyrim.
Download the SE version as marked here. Download the archive somewhere, unpack it. From the folder, get the .dll, .exe files and \Data folder, and place them to your Skyrim SE folder, as showed here. MO users should archive the \Data folder and install it as any other mod trough MO (you can do the same in NMM as well if you wanna). From now on, launch your game only via SKSE (skse64_loader.exe), not the game regular launcher.

3) Download and install SkyUI.As mod itself, SkyUI is basically a "PCfication" of ugly vanilla Skyrim interface. On practice, it's also required by most of well-known mods in addition to SKSE. Also install this fix for it.
Optionally (but very recommended as it's just looks so much more alive and beautiful) install animated icons mod for it. Also optionally, install this "wider" addon for MCM look. Also install iHUD.

4) Install SSE Engine Fixes.Note #1: mods has TWO parts - first main file, the "Part 1" you can install with mod manager. Second, "Part 2", you should download manually, unpack and place all 3 .dll files to your Skyrim root folder (same as in previous step for DDL Plugin Loader).

MUST INSTALL : : : : : This mod for Skyrim Special Edition can unlock your in-game refresh rate from 60Hz to 300Hz

7) You can download this refresh rate unlocker mod for Skyrim Special Edition from here. All you have to do in order to install it is drop it into the SSE install folder.

8-9) Last but not least, the modder also suggest using the HavokFix SKSE plugin. This plugin is said to be an easy all-in-one performance-optimized solution. (LOCATED HERE) ( Might not be needed anymore )

10) Install Alternate Start - Live Another Life Why you need this? These mods provide wide amount of alternative starts the game for those who do not wish to go through the lengthy intro sequence at Helgen. The thing is that vanilla start (scene in Helgen) is VERY heavy-scripted. And when you will install let's say, 200+mods and start a new game, your Skyrim will be very heavy overloaded. And there's very high chance that your came will crash (because the Papyrus, Skyrim's script engine, was [not] updated in SE and it's same clunky and limited), even if the game itself is absolutely stable. And now these mods save the day! You can just skip this heavy-scripted scene and start anywhere you like. Besides, it has a really wide amount of alternative start, great for roleplay.

Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch This mod should be already considered as part of vanilla game. It fixes litereally thousands glitches and bugs in Skyrim.

RaceMenu Character creation menu how it should have been originally and great amount of customization options.

Hook Share SSE + Scaleform Translation Plus Plus These mods are needed for a few mods below to work properly.

Stay At The System Page This mod brings back the behavior of original Skyrim's Journal Menu. Whenever you press the Escape key, mod will open the System page instead of Quest page. Muh convenient!

Whose Quest Is It Anyway Swaps the "Quest items cannot be removed..." message for a more descriptive message informing you which quest the item belongs to.

Yes Im Sure Disables annoying message prompts asking you if you're sure you'd like to craft/improve/exit menus.

Better Dialogue Controls + Better MessageBox Controls Ever pick the wrong item in a dialogue with a NPC or struggled with not cozy controls in messagebox popups? No more!

1st Person Candlelight Fix Have you ever been annoyed that the candlelight spell is much brighter in 3rd person view than 1st person view? This mod aims to reduce that difference and make them more equal. Note: don't let any other mod overwrite it, in case of what.

Better Jumping SE Allows to jump while sprinting.

Glow Be Gone SSE Dynamically removes annoying edge glow from shader effects via an SKSE plugin. Similar to "No More Ugly Effects" for Skyrim LE.

Player Eyes Blink Fix Enables blinking eyes for the player.

Blacksmith Forge Water Fix Skyrim SE forge water still looks terrible. Fortunately, this solves the problem. Get the USSEP version.

Enchantment Reload Fix SE Fixes the bug that causes weapon enchantments to drain more charges, and increase drastically in price, after the game is reloaded.

Atlas Map Markers - Updated with MCM Essential mod that drastically increases amount of map markers. Remember how you was able to fast travel only to Whiterun itself or Dragonsreach? Now you can fast travel to Arcadia's Cauldron, Jorrvaskr etc. More then 700 new map markers! Please also make sure to endorse the originallmod

Weapons Armor Clothing and Clutter Fixes + Armor and Clothing Extension These two mod fix hundreds of bugs and inconsistencies for Skyrim's weapons, armors, clothing, jewelry, and clutter items and add more diversity and lore-friendly clothing options and gives NPCs more appropriate attire.

Flora Respawn Fix + Better Harvesting These two mods are fixing plenty of respawning flora/fauna and gives more realistic harvesting for flora and ingredients and death items on animals/creatures.
Note: for Better Harvesting, make sure to install "Better Harvesting - Flora Respawn Fix version" version of the mod.

Heartfires Houses Building Fix Restores proper models of some building parts and furniture in crafting menu.

Auto Hide Ammo Automatically hides your current ammo when there isn't a bow/crossbow equipped.

More Informative Console This mod edits the UI to show a great deal of additional information on npcs, items, and other objects when the console is opened, similar to the way MFG console worked for Skyrim LE. It may help you in various cases of game testing and possible issues solving. Make sure to get the proper version of main file, currently the "More Informative Console for SKSE 2.16" one.

Fuz Ro D-oh - Silent Voice An SKSE plugin that adds support for unvoiced in-game dialogs. Isn't doing anything by itself, by it's needed for many mods for mod-added dialogues to work properly.

Even if you select the highest settings, all of these will remain on 0 and disabled:

bTreesReceiveShadows=0
bDrawLandShadows=0
bTransparencyMultisampling=0

Enable them at your own risk, severe FPS reduction warning :D

Thanks for the info. Switched vsync off and changed the FOV to 75.

Question, what does changing the Mouse Acceleration to 0 actually do?

Acceleration is something that a lot of gamers aren't even aware of and they need to be because it can result in inconsistent behaviour with their mouse. Put simply, acceleration increases the speed of your mouse cursor based on the speed you move your mouse. This might sound like a good idea but it causes problems - if you move your mouse from point A to point B then you'd expect your cursor to do the same thing each time you move the mouse between those two points; with acceleration enabled it won't because you'll vary the speed that you move the mouse between those two points and end up with inconsistent aiming.

Turns it off :cool:

My game isn't here yet and I'm off to work soon but anyway...if you change the FOV setting in-game, does it remember next time you load or do you need to apply it again?

Getting sick of having to edit files to change the FoV in games, sigh.

When you say you have to type in the command every time, is it the same as Oblivion that if you switch to 3rd person and back to 1st it would default back the fov and have retype it again?.

Don't know, Didn't try that... All i know is that you need to enter the fov line every single time until someone else finds a way to make it work on every load up
