Someone in video game thread asked about Skyrim mods so I'll post a few of my faves

Armours and clothing
>Anything by OperatorCactus / skyrimfuckery
Downloads in the sidebar, pics in the blog
>Book of UUNP with non-skimpy patch
Original mod is full of coomerism, but it also has quite a few nice more covered ones for females (the mod is not fitted for vanilla body, you need UNP body to use it, or CBBE/other and a patch)
>Sleek Wolf Armour
Makes the wolf armour the companions wear a bit sleeker & removes boob plates from females https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/44812
>aMidianBorn Book of Silence
Textures, there might be better more modern ones but I love the black elven armour, won't play without it https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/35382

>Vanilla hair remake
Makes the vanilla hair meshes more detailed and modern, also an option for physics https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/63979
>Salt and Wind retextures for vanilla hair
Smoother textures for vanilla hair, without being too shiny https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/45147
>Natural Hair colors

>playing Tribunal
>doing some sidequest in the caves under the city
>at some point have to kill a lich who's creating a plague
>I'm lvl 80+, got glass armor and enchantments up the ass, my spear of bitter mercy does so much damage I instakill ash vampires with a single stealth attack
>got so much health and healing jewelry I no longer use health potions
>"This is going to be easy"
>finally I get to the lich, Gedna Relvel
>rush to her and hit her straight in the face
>it does 1 pixel of damage
>she fireballs me, lose 3/4 of my health
>I retreat, she's faster than me and blows me up
>turns out in the base game her stats are gimped because lol bethesda code, but the unofficial patch I used fixes it and gives her 800 times more health and stats
Ended up killing her by gobbling down 30 health potions and jumping around to dodge her fireballs, took about 15 minutes but it was the best fight I've had in all of TES

No. 225246

I'm fine with the original models because the weird way they look contributes to the foreign atmosphere of the game, but the original textures are so low res that you can count the pixels on them, and get really ugly when you wield a weapon. That's why I have 0 qualms about high res texture mods

Continuing my mods rec spamming again

I would first download a huge texture overhaul (like Pfushers, Noble or Skyland, comparison in vidrel by some nice lady), then start pathing in models and textures you like better, there are a lot of creators texturing every single minuscule thing in game with the power of pure autism, bless them. Some creators;
I LOVE his landscapes & shore textures, so pretty https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/users/52194591?tab=user+files

Also, mods the edit only textures can be used without problems between different Skyrims (LE & SE), so be sure to check the other games Nexus pages too, you might find some gems.

There's so goddamn many good mesh/texture mods made in the almost 11 years this game has been out it would be impossible to list them all. If it exists, there is a retexture for it.

No. 225436

Bloodmoon was the worst one. Barely adds anything in terms of plot unlike Tribunal, the new map is just a murder island where you can't walk 5 meters without being rushed by 10 wolves, 3 smurfs on boars and spriggans which you have to each murder thrice to make them extra obnoxious. Werewolf powers you get are useless, and getting lycanthropy is useless because you can get a ring that gives exactly the same effects without downsides
Saddest thing is that Bloodmoon was the point where Bethesda completely departed from the Morrowind atmosphere and started doing regular fantasy games with nothing mystic or strange in it. There was a single creature that wasn't original in Vvardenfell, the rat. From Bloodmoon on you now get wolves, bears, boars, caves full of zombies/draugrs, and plots where no one is creepily seductive and nobody betrays you

The tone change from Morrowind to Oblivion is INSANE. The drug fuelled lore and plot, unique world. Then Oblivion comes with moonfaces and generic fantasy forests and HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE HIGH ELVES npc conversations.

I'm so angry they chose Hammerfell (and High Rock? I can't remember) for the next game. God what I would give for Valenwood, Elsweyr or Black Marsh.

My fav part in Morrowind was all the mysteries, conspiracies and secrets in it that you had to uncover
>the meaning behind the 36 sermons of vivec
>the disappearance of the dwarves
>how did nerevar die?
>the 26 threads of the webspinner
>the 32 museum artifacts
>the 10 propylon indices
>the two creature merchants
>the twin lanterns
>the few daedra shrines that actually allow you to communicate with the daedra
>a random person may not know much about a subject, but if you find an expert NPC you'll unlock many more conversation subjects
>finding out which quests are more profitable by betraying the quest giver
>finding out the best way to use transports, mark, recall, divine intervention and almsivi intervention to reach any town in 1 minute
>the camonna tong's links to the fighter's guild and house hlaalu
>the three vampire clans you can actually join
If you had 2005 internet it could take a thousand hours and multiple playthroughs to uncover all of this. Meanwhile Oblivion has birthsign stones and a phantom mudcrab, and everything else will be indicated to you by markers and helpful NPCs

And the most important secret:
You can kill Vivec before you get wraithguard and still finish the main quest by having the last dwarf jury-rig an unfinished wraithguard, which makes you lose 200 hp permanently

I've tried modding the game before and there's so many beautiful mods i always go overboard and realize my GPU can't handle it. Doesn't help that Skyrim is so ugly even for its time to be honest.

It's time for a 30 series… But then i need to also upgrade my processor, at least. Shit, i was the dumb one who asked for mods but i can't even use most of them, kek. Thank you so much for sharing your favorites though, i love you so much!

You could play as gay/bisexual characters in New Vegas (but Bethesda didn't write it) and there's gay marriage in Skyrim, but they don't seem willing to go further.

Imo SE runs better, I have not looked back since I switched. SE runs 64 bit and also has .esl mod files which do not count toward the 255 .esp limit, so you can have more mods.

Oh no, I forgot I had started the "M'rissi Tail of Troubles" mod like a hundred hours ago. I finally realized I have to save her from a prison, there was a time limit I was not aware of, and when I got there she was turned into stone/dead ahhh.

Very demented theory but I think Barenziah was inspired by Theodora I (T1) and Theodora the Armenian (T2), two byzantine empresses
>before becoming queen/empress Barenziah and T1 had a disreputable profession (thief/prostitute)
>they got married to an emperor (Justinian)/emperor's best general (Symmachus) who started life as a peasant
"Symmachus" ends like "Belisarius", who was emperor Justinian's best general and as famous as the emperor. IRL T1 and Belisarius didn't date, the writer just merged Belisarius and Justinian to make a better story
>their husbands had to face an important riot, had the possibility to flee, but ultimately decided to stay for the good of the country
The difference being Symmachus died in the riot, Justinian didn't
>they both had a slanderous biography made by a scribe who worked for them (The secret history/The real Barenziah), balanced by an official proper biography
>the names of the scribes sound the same (Procopius/Plitinius)
>just like T2, her husband died early and she ruled alone waiting for her child (Michael III/Helseth) to be of age, said child proving to be quite the plotter and fond of using assassins to murder those who wouldn't let him rule as he pleased (Theoktistos/the Nerevarine)

super late since i’ve not as terminally online anymore, but ata >>225790 and I wanted to mention that I just finished modding a new SE session after days of work! I’ll hope I can post my faves soon, I just want to make sure to not recommend shit mods since I’m trying out a lot of new stuff. Anyway I was looking for that one blog (eskyrim) where shitloads of armor and clothing mods were compiled just to see that the guy who ran it made it locked behind a paywall. I was searching for alternatives and found the modbooru, which is nice but 90% coomer stuff and I’m pretty sure it’s missing some really good ones. does anyone know of other good armor mod blogs? I’m pretty out of touch
I used to play it a lot for a while. I got so much stuff that was hard to grind for but somehow I stopped playing idk. It’s true it’s a super generic mmo but I liked the huge amount of lore and stupid side quests as well as the fact that you can go nuts with styling and roleplaying ( if you ignore the main questline. ) I do not like that everyone is the literal chosen one, wish you could be just some generic peasant or something but well. almost everyone runs around there looking like some overstyled donutsteel character lol while I love to make themed characters who fit neat into the world. I also loved how the ingame economy had a weird life of its own. I actually considered playing it again this winter! It’s also a very pretty game if you use LUT and reshade smaa because the default antialiasing is abysmal, or at least it used to be.

I caved and got it a few months ago, it’s actually been super fun. I enjoy all the new CC content like fishing and the cool houses. Apparently there are issues running mods with it, but I’ve only encountered a few minor problems that I was able to work around. Worth the buy if it’s on sale.

no idea on most of this but I would suggest tumblr, you can edit your posts and choose layout I think its better than twitter for this. I am getting into 3D and would love to make custom armors anyone got some good tutorials on how to implement them into the game? It must be relatively easy seeing the many armor ports.

No. 253041

Not sure if this suffice but here, i used to use this tutorial back in the days but it's been around for years so I'm not sure if it still holds up? Yeah, porting is pretty easy if you know your blender basic though! Just extract the armor model and fit it into Skyrim with blender, best of luck to you nona!


In another topic, would you nonas indulge in my autism and share your favorite armor mod for Skyrim?

No. 254129

That pic is diabolical, my thoughts exactly on these updates. I recently watched a documentary made by the former team that worked on Skyrim, I thought it was insightful because even though it's such a buggy game they really seemed to pour their love into it and I'm convinced whoever is told to update the game now are just a skeleton crew to keep reminding us Skyim exists and they don't care about it at all. The consequence being that they introduce even more bugs because they didn't create it (see: one of the updates corrupted two textures somehow that makes you crash upon viewing them, meaning potentially any file in the game is botched and we just haven't discovered it yet).

About the armor, I don't know anything about making 3D assets but the part where you set up the objects for them in the CK is relatively easy. You can just copy and paste an existing armor to be your template and reroute the meshes to be your custom ones. It can also be done in xEdit if you don't want to touch the CK.

I adore Halloween, so about a year ago, I made a special Halloween-themed character. I customized the fuck out of her, she's a witch in the "Wizard of Oz" sense. I'd downloaded some Halloween decor mods, a custom spell that lets you throw exploding, laughing pumpkins, a shack out in the swamps that sells Halloween goodies and armor, and my vampire boyfriendo follower. Our gimmick was we could only roam around during nighttime. I forgot to play her this year, but there's still time left before the year is out. Picrel is boyfriendo in the swamp shack.

I agree with everyone that RPGs are becoming less difficult and complex to appeal to the mainstream but holy shit. I fucking suck at oblivion.
I always knew I was a mediocre gamer but I don't mind because I'm pretty casual. Only skyrim has made me to want to play other es games, mainly morrowind and oblivion, but with how ass I am at oblivion I dont think its possible. I've been playing for hours spread out over several days and it feels like I'm crawling. I'm still at level two. I tried to go into that vampire cave for azura and kept getting slaughtered by the entryway vampire. And the damn oblivion gates are to oblivion as the dragons are to skyrim. Every time I turn a corner a fucking new one pops up.
And as superficial as it sounds I'm really turned off on playing because of how ugly everyone is. The humans look decent but the fucking dark elves are a damn disgrace. Its whiny as fuck but I wished the elves (especially dunmer) looked as how they look in skyrim. The elves look like humans cosplaying elves.
I'm still going to try to play it, the storyline is far better than skyrim imo. And as pathetic as it sounds I like Martin septim because I find his voice attractive. Makes me sad hes going to die.

Oh man I remember having sexual fantasies about Martin Septim because of his voice. Sean Bean has one of the sexiest voices ever.

I used to love Oblivion but after playing so much Skyrim I have trouble going back to it. Mostly because it's harder, and because of the ugly people like you said. It definitely has more of an 'rpg' feel if that makes sense, and Skyrim is more of an action game. I really want to play and beat it again someday though.

So I played The Blades for the first time, after meaning to play it forever. I only played for about an hour, I think it's cool that this game is free but I'm probably not going to continue playing it. It feels like a weird unfinished proto version of Skyrim. Also I don't like that you can't jump or swing your sword without a target. I'm impressed that this game is on Android though.

Also I really wish Oblivion and Morrowind were on Switch.

anon from the dumbass shit thread whose wedding anniversary corresponds with the date skyrim begins, someone cool asked some follow-up questions so i was gonna answer over here:

>what kind of build do you play

right now im flipping back and forth between a warhammer-wielding orc named bat, and a book-obsessed breton mage named faustine babin


my orc is married to marcurio because that is the gayest mage i have ever seen. idk who my female character will marry, i wish nazir was an option, his voice is so nice

>one last thing, my fiance and i are planning our wedding in the summer-fall and now i realized i can have a skyrim day too…i won't steal your vibe though lol

i mean if you want to have that little nerdy element w/o having a whole themed wedding choosing a date with a hidden significance is a great choice i think. my husband actually introduced me to skyrim so i love that our anniversary lines up like it does, but at the time we only chose the 17th cause we got married in 2017

How are you on level 2 closing Oblivion gates and doing Azura's quest? I don't think Oblivion is hard, I just think you need to prioritize easier quests first, and grind a little. What's your build? You might need to learn some spells, even if just for the benefits, like chameleon and detect spells, or even a simple summoning spell for when you close Oblivion gates (I speedrun them and rarely attack anything unless I want to). Also jump everywhere you go so you level up your acrobatics and can run and jump very far. I know it's a three month old post but I hope you read this. You probably are already good at the game kek

Not sure which thread to use.

I recently started playing Morrowind. I have about 10 hours on record. It's ridiculously hard lol but I'm getting better at it.

I also started replaying Skyrim. I've spent 6000+ hours playing this game already (yes, I know) but most of that was probably in the first 5-6 years the game was released. I recently started playing it on my switch which I kind of hate because of the small screen but the only other way I can play is on my laptop which will only last playing Skryim for about an hour.

I honestly hate how much fun I'm having. I feel like the most basic bitch ever to still have fun playing vanilla skyrim after 6000+ hours of gameplay. That being said for years I tried to play it and and I'd immediately get bored so I don't why the spark was just relit for me recently. I can tell they've added/changed a lot of things over the years, like making the game somewhat harder. I'm definitely leveling up a lot slower than I did the first time I played this game.

Also on all my previous playthroughs I'd play a mage type character and use all my perks for magic skills. I've been trying to rely more on weapons and potions instead of just magic even though it's tempting to just use spells for everything.

Morrowind is amazing. Have you got horribly lost yet while trying to look for a family tomb for a quest? Or had a vast line of cliff racers attacking you one by one? That's all the bad stuff I can think of. I love Morrowind, I semi-recently started it and have around 75 hours in it. I'm not finished it, but I'm close. What house are you going to join?

No. 296407

I have no idea what house I'm gonna join yet, honestly I've just been trying to level up so I don't die instantly every time I get into a fight. I keep getting stuck on these little side quests like the one where the lady wants you to find the dark elf who robbed her because she has the hots for him, or the one with the naked nord who claimed the mage lady robbed him. currently I'm lost looking for some lady's husband who got attacked by nix hounds. at one point I wandered into a cave where there were vampires and I had to reload from an earlier save when I realized there was no way I was getting out alive. and I've been randomly attacked by cliff racers more than once lol

No. 296410

Have you been jumping everywhere you go? That will help you increase acrobatics. Yeah the side quests are interesting sometimes, I do like the one with the lady and the robber. Why are you stuck on them though?

No. 296411

I have been doing that, the only thing is it drains my stamina/fatigue which is bad if I run into an enemy, so I jump everywhere then 'wait' for an hour to regenerate it. I'm stuck on the nix hound one because I can't find her husband anywhere

still binge playing skyrim, I decided to put it on expert mode (was previously playing it on adept). it's a little bit harder, I've been having to rely on potions a lot more. I had to use a paralysis potion (which I try not to do because it feels like cheating) just to take out a bandit leader. I'm on level 43 and just did blackreach, I usually exploit the wooden plate glitch at the tower of mzark so that I don't have to do blackreach (it gets tedious on every playthrough) but I was like nah I should do it.

I'm getting the itch to play Skyrim again and resurrect my gigastacy Nord dragonborn. I love roleplaying and adding bits to her lore.

No. 307488

If you liked those games a lot for the combat you won't find it in Skyrim because the combat is much cruder and simpler. You can use a wabbajack mod list to skip the endless searching and downloading mods part (something that describes itself as vanilla plus might be the more well-rounded way to start out) if you still want to play to see what the immersion and roleplaying parts are like. I think the best anyone can do with the combat part by adding mods is using magic mods that expand what's possible with magic through all the level tiers

No. 307579

I'm aware it's not really combat but more roleplay based and since I like that kind of aesthetic, I was curious about it. I heard you need alot of mods to better your game experience, is that true?

No. 307644

I'd say yes since even if someone skips over any visual and weather enhancement mods, there's several bug fix and quality of life mods that make the game better to play. And there's several dialogue/follower/quest mods that add a touch of polish or expand variety to what's already there.
iirc if you go the wabbajack route to more quickly mod the game, a modpack like nordic souls is one example of vanilla plus style that's more strict about trying to stay true to the base of the game with added variety and enhancements. Lostlegacy is a mod list example of allowing power levels and scaling to get wackier and is aimed to be more exaggerated high fantasy. It also includes legacy of the dragonborn for people who want an expansion and display for the collecting artifacts part of the game. Someone can also look at these lists and pick out only the essentials of what they personally want for a lighter mod list and download the mods themselves from nexus

No. 308418

Actually im not good at the game yet because my sister fucking FRIED our xbox 360. Now I have to start from point zero. But only when I find a way to play the damn game again. Yeah, I'll have to play around with what quests to do. I tried to do a stupid ghost quest but unlike skyrim where you can just hack at everything ghosts aren't susceptible to physical damage, so I only had a shitty fireball spell to fight them with. Honestly though that makes so much damn sense why did they make you able to physically hit spiritual beings in skyrim that's so stupid. I remember sniping the wisps with arrows.

I hate what scrotes do to serana. She’s my favorite Skyrim character, but her male fans are so damn creepy. Half the time, they’re not even attracted to Skyrim Serana, but the modded out version of her with a smooth face, fat tits, and some fuckass overrendered hairstyle, I’m sick of it, this is not my Serana!!! They don’t even like Serana as a character, they just like her clothes and the fact she’s one of the few followers with a personality. The fact she’s one of the only followers that you can’t marry, and who actively rejects the player, but when moids install the “marry serana” or any other sex mod, it feels so disrespectful, considering what she went through to become a daughter of coldharbour. Fuck moids, the only appropriate spouse for serana would be a woman with low libido, so they don’t make her uncomfortable with advancements

Skyrim nexus mods and their comments blackpilled me on men and their true nature when I was a teen kek. They don't even enjoy video games they just play them to either be upset (in the case of LoL and DarkSouls) or horny. The funny part is they can't even make characters look good without making them look like uncanny troon fantasy avatars, like shit youd see in Second Life.

This makes me hate him even more. I already didn’t like him because he had an affair and forced her to abort their baby, but she was SIXTEEN!!!! Dunmer age way differently too, so in her race, her sexual maturity was probably the equivalent of a human 12 year old, it was written that she was the youngest dunmer to get pregnant. I’m on the Thalmors side now, I’d also outlaw the worship of a rapist.

I'm assuming you mean totally new unique followers that have a decent amount of dialogue? The main ones I've used so far are Kaidan 2 paired with a face replacement (but I don't remember which one I picked)

>Xelzaz is a Custom Fully Voiced Argonian Lawman of House Telvanni with ~7250 lines. He is on his way to Rivenspire in High Rock, having traveled all the way from Port Telvannis in Morrowind. Xelzaz has just arrived in Skyrim and is looking for a traveling companion. In return he will keep you company, cook you warm meals and brew powerful potions.
and a bit of Nebarra (sarcastic high elf) because he has dialogue with Xelzaz
