Tell Us Your Favorite Skyrim Mods!

Top 5 Skyrim Mods will be back next week, so in the meantime let's share our favorite mods that haven't been featured on the show.

'

In case you weren't involved in the whole argument over the true meaning of the word "biweekly" (final verdict: it means whatever you want!), you should know that the Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week is now airing every other week. So, what that means for you is that we'll be around next week with a full rundown of the latest and greatest Skyrim mods to make your game better, prettier, and/or just plain more ridiculous.

But until then, I wanted to use this week as an opportunity to let you all share any mod suggestions that we haven't yet featured on the show. So here's what you should do:

Tell us your suggestions in the comments! And don't forget the Steam/Nexus links!

Not sure which mods we've already featured on the show? Never seen the show at all? Just want to see the mod that lets you ride around on bears? Here! Please enjoy this handy list of previous episodes:

May 5 / April 14 / April 7 / March 31 / March 24 / March 17 / March 10 / March 3 / February 25

anyone know of any assassins creed brotherhood style mods for skyrim where you enter windhelm kill one of the racist nords and the female extra characters run away screaming "I'm to beautiful to die." followed by a man "saying shiiiiit wrong way shiiiiiit." i need these elements of dialogue to make my skyrim hours fly by. maybe some hay to jump into would be nice then assassinate a vampire.

i absolutely love the midas magic mod. i think it's a must for any mage character. adds a lot of new spells and a few tweaks to the vanilla magic of the game which makes playing as a mage more fun. i really like the 'utility' spells, to lock your foes down or throw them around. in short, it makes magic combat more tactical

SkyUI- Fixes part of the UI. Nothing can completely fix that atrocity.

 

Real Compass Mod- Gets rid of the handholding, and makes you actually feel like you are actually exploring

 

Levitation- Makes mountain climbing possible

 

Frostfall- Adds survival elements. Reminds you that Skyrim IS cold

 

Kill-able children- sweet sweet revenge systematically killing what ruined the mass effect series

Bathing Beauties Luxury Suite - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=11427

adds a pretty sweet player home just outside of Whiterun.  There is a non-nude version...

 

Rayek's End - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=16028

Fairly certain this one will be showing up soon anyway.  a small player home hidden near a waterfall between Riverwood and Whiterun.  Small, but amazing. 

 

Better Females by Bella - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=2812

a must have for the game.  makes the women not all look like they are old and wrinkled. 

 

Apachii SkyHair - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=10168

Best hair in the game, by far. 

 

Eagle Eye Perk 3x Zoom - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9169

The zoom in for the eagle eye perk in archery is 3 x as much.  Great for those long arrow shots to the knee. 

 

Black Tower and Black Sacrament Armor pack - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=5696

This armor is amazing.  I love using the cowel with various other armors as well.

 

KenMOD - Lockpick Pro - Cheat - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=219

For those of us that are annoyed with locked chests.  it got to the point that I was getting really mad with breaking lock pick after lock pick for 5 gold and iron boots. 

 

More Craftables - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=799

Lets you craft just about every non enchanted item in the game.

 

HiRes Legible Road Signs - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=436

not really a must, but kinda nice when you are trying to run around.

 

That should just about cover it for now...I have about 100 mods active in my game...everything from player homes to armor sets.  just about all of the armor sets by Hentai are amazing.

For me, 5 mods I must have to continue playing Skyrim are:

-Deadly Dragons :http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=3829

Harder, more enjoyable, more realistic dragon battles. With this mod, I know that I am the only one in my game who can triumph over a dragon, not some bandits or mammoths.

-SkyTEST - Realistic Animals and Predators http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=10175

Add tons of things to Skyrim's wildlife. It make me feel the animals are really alive.

-Oriental beauty Women and Man mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=6953

Very good body mod. I have a super model under my command, which is veeery fun

-Uncle Sheogorath really helpful hints and tips http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=12234#

I'm tired of reading those boring things in the loading screen so this is my solution.

-The REAL Fus Ro Dah http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=2973

The shout I used most of the time, so the sound effect this mod give make the game feel more, well, heroic

Can't find the favorite one. Instead I will mention the opposite, which is the game itself.

There is a lots of great mod out there! Most of the mod i installed serve no other purpose other than upgrade the game original graphic. First of all, i want to introduced ENB mod from sharpshooters, it make the game look incredibly stunning in term of color and lighting. No mater indoor and outdoor, you will find yourself spending more time just to wandering around. However, the night become darken to a level where you can barely see something is a drawback.

The original game's water look a bit weird and less attractive for me, so i decided to change it how it look. This mod really make the game's water shine like a star! You will find yourself staring at the water for a couple of minutes automatically to admire it beauty of nature. It even add some wet effect to your character and rock.

WATER - Water And Terrain Enhancement Redux

The original female NPC look ugly and awful? Believe me, you are not alone. This mod completely transform any female within the game into some gorgeous angels which only appear in your dream. It also affect the female character that player build. Combine another mod call ApachiiSkyHair completely extend the way female look in the game.

Pretty Face Pack

ApachiiSkyHair

This new mod actually impress me, i have to say. It add a large number of interesting, smart, balance and fun spell to the game. You will wish you have this mod active earlier.

Is there any mod that fixes the polygon'ish mountains? When you get close to some rocks, they have super sharp edges, which ruins the realism.

 @banditjingx I while back I read on this site that a person could not play this game any further then the opening because of that reason. You ain't alone lol.

 @burial6gown I'am sure you are a console player where you cant even install the mod. There is no need to be jealous, kid. Buy yourself a PC version of Skyrim and an advance PC would fix this. But i guess you cant even afford it since you parent would not agree about that? ^ ^

ummm...if you don't like this game, then why are you commenting on the post?  if you don't like it, ignore it.

 @hector530 depends on the armor...he does have some that are crap...some of his earlier stuff.  a lot of his newer stuff though is great.  course, I usually have to wait for someone to convert it to CBBE as I don't use the UNP body.  Neo's stuff is pretty cool too.

by the way...now I'm being a smartazz...just in case you were wondering :-)

 @burial6gown not being a smartazz at all...just using common sense.  I get that this is the internet, land of letting your opinion known, but really?  I guess I don't understand why you would click on an article, read said article, and then comment on said article for a game you care nothing about.  unless you are really that bored...which I suppose is a possiblity.  Duely noted.  LET IT BE KNOWN, FROM THIS DAY FORTH, THAT BURIAL6GOWN HATES THIS GAME.  I shall post this everywhere so that the world knows that you don't like Skyrim.  then you don't have to :-)
