Should one play vanilla first and then add on mods later on? Thoughts?
If you believe in Jesus Christ and are 100% proud of it put this as your signature.

Personally, I find vanilla Skyrim boring. At the very least I'd look into the immersive armors and weapons mods. Plus some graphical mods.

I'd say play vanilla until you get bored or frustrated with it, then mod to taste.

Start with vanilla. Its a great game in its own right. And once you do start modding you'll appreciate the experience a lot more

You mean he shouldn't download the Thomas the Train mod for the first playthrough?

The only mod essential to the game is the Macho Man Randy Savage one.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

You can't really "finish" the game so...

After you reach the first large city and do some questing around it, you should look into interface mods. Anything that fixes that godawful menu system Skyrim uses.

Start with vanilla and add mods that you think would enhance the experience as you go along. No need to force yourself to do a full playthrough with no mods the first time.

However, be careful when adding/removing mods. Some can leave a bunch of crap behind and mess with the saves. Skyrim's engine and the save mechanics are already pretty bad.

You could install some HD textures right away. Other than that, Skyrim is a decent game on its own, although installing a UI mod will definitely help.
