Why mods make PC superior.

By the time it's playable at a decent FPS with all the mods maybe they'll have given it some decent gameplay

I think your argument loses it's validity when you mention the fps, what use are those graphics when they make the game unplayable? Consoles could also surely render extremely impressive graphics, with a low and unplayable fps could they not? You say it puts Crysis 3 to shame, but Crysis 3 can run at 60 Fps, it's not limited to running in single digit framerates.


You'd win the argument.But then again,the guy who took these screenies PC specs are unknown to us.Still,a single GPU won't be able to handle this.But,I guess anyone who has SLI Titans or SLI 780 are open to try a heavily modded Skyrim like this.

Mods make PC superior by a lot... unfortunately next to no devs cares, and the reason mods are awesome is certainly not just because of "graphic mods". Which I tend to avoid almost universally because they butcher the artistic nature of the game (but Elder Scrolls always looked artistically terrible so thats another thing).

It'll be playable eventually. Hopefully

Honestly I've made Morrowind run at single digit FPS with modern hardware. There is a certain point where the engine just can't handle it.

console peasants trying to troll?

there's plenty of awesome mods that improve everything from combat to stealth to harvesting plants, and hardly any of them hit your framerate. Sure, the graphical mods hit hard, but Skyrim is heavily cpu bound, and any modern gpu/cpu combo can handle it. Like I said, I have a 4770K and gtx 780, and was getting 70+ fps.

For example, DUEL cranks up the AI, and makes combat require tactics and teamwork. Immersive NPCs and Patrols brings the world to life, by making each npc unique and adding interesting interactions. Sounds of Skyrim makes dungeons more intense with various creepy and environmental sound effects.

There's tons of things that make the gameplay/graphics awesome in Skyrim, and it's your own fault for not using them.

Can you tell me how to make my game look like that? I found modding Skyrim is a pain in the ass. I tried to figure it out but after many hours of frustration and trying to seek help it was no good.


Pretty much an ENB with w/e other mods you want.


ENB?


Just use this guide: http://www.asot.es/2001/09/skyrim-mods.html


I must be blind but where in his site is there a guide? Its just him talking about his modded game and how makes tweaks to certain things and what not.

Ummm, it list every single mod he has with a link to where to get it and also in section 1.1.5 Which mods do you recommend?
Start with these guides :
S.T.E.P
G.E.M.S

Don't think you need much more than that.
