Dr. Emmett Brown: There's that word again. "Heavy." Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?

100+ mods ~80 enabled and on a laptop..... yeah my laptop impresses me but not as much as how easily Skyrim can run while looking utterly gorgeous.

Also play with a 360 controller :)



Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

There's some nice mods out there, but after doing most of the things, after it got repetitive i stopped.  Looking forward to ESO though.

Good idea ComputerEd,


(Light Mod)


I mostly only modded to fix some of the things about Skyrim that annoyed the crap out of me.  

-I added more gold to merchants.

-Added better paths to the map. 

-Added that merchants guild building so I don't waste so much time searching/purchasing/selling items (this has unfortunately cheapened the game substantially.

Above that I added some texture mods (why not)


Probably a few other but I don't recall.



I haven't played in a few months,, I got bored (I put in 67 hours total which is 2nd place for the most I've played any game,, only bfbc2 beats it at 82 hours) I got my monies worth. ( I wonder how many hours I've spent on this computer......)


I have been thinking about getting the dragonborn dlc but I can imagine it's just more of the same...

I primarely use mods that fix things. Like better followers and such. And then of course various texture mods. Though my graphics card has some memory issues, if I opt for ultra high settings.
