the only "realism" mods completely break the immersion and add tedious nitpicking details that arent realistic at all

I agree. I feel a game like this needs more of that survival feel, like eating, staying warm, etc. But once you do that, suddenly you end up focusing more on that than on playing and enjoying the game.

If you're talking graphically, I've yet to find anything. The ENB mods all make my game look hazey, too bright, too vibrant. They just don't work well for the gameplay experience.

Punctuation goes a long way for comprehension.

I was wondering about both. I did not even think about the sleeping and eating being tedious. I will have to check into some of those ENB ones, any inparticular I should look into?

I installed mods to eat, drink, sleep, stay warm, hunt, etc. and it was cool for a bit but yea after awhile they just become annoying and I turned them off.

I do like Requiem. Makes the game harder.

But I did remove a few of the mods functionalities :

They removed fast travel. Some people prefer it off for "immersion" purposes. But after a while you realize that 90% of the game without fast travel is running the same f***ing roads 90% of the time.

Author has a personal vendetta against heavy armor. Slower, takes a TON of stamina, barely more armor rating, makes casting magic impossible until you raised requires far more points to be viable vs light armor.

I mean in vanilla, heavy already very little going for it vs light already.

Toned down magic dps a little for npc's. Anything who used magic basically one shotted you. I'm all for making magic not useless but it was a little extreme.
