I'm looking to spice up my game a bit but skyrimnexus always has the same few top files and most of the new files are pretty terrible, but I'm trying to sort through them anyway.
This is the only one I've found so far that's relatively unknown, but still pretty cool: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=6495 - it's not received much attention but I think it has pretty neat retextures, especially the ebony-styled ones.
While I'm looking, has anyone found some other cool mods that have gone mostly under the radar? Preferably ones that stand on their own without conflicts. Also one that fixes up rubies and garnets being mixed up in the inventory.
