Lions, Portals and Bears, Oh My!

Testing out the tools of Aperture Science, play with the science of apertures, and wage a land war across all of Skyrim. Also, chickens. The explosive kind.

Portal Gun in Skyrim Alpha v1 by zOmbi880
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=15673
Notes: Weapon found on the ground in Windhelm. Basically a fancy teleportation spell, or like the beginning of Portal when you only have blue. 

Mike's Mystical Mounts

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=12700
Notes: Talk to Mike the Argonian in front of Whiterun stables. 

Prides of Skyrim by Frank the Fish
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=16012
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=12647
Notes: Adds packs of roaming lions to landscape. Really difficult: lions are level 50, and lionesses are level 40. Also includes a bunch of lairs and dens. 

DYNAVISION - Dynamic Depth of Field by Gopher and MyGoodEye
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=12525
Notes: Simulates depth of field effects of a 35mm camera lens. Older version gave you a spell to summon gopher, newest version uses special stone outside Riverwood to summon gopher. Talk to dude to adjust settings. Unlike other mods like this, very minimal frame rate impact. 

WARZONES - Civil Unrest by MyGoodEye
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9494
Notes: Recommended by GameSpot user darkmoney52. Basically turns Skyrim into all-out civil war, adding 62 battle zones throughout entire world. Also adds "new scenery and boss-like characters." Battles are dynamic based on factions you've sided with, etc.

Camping with the Exploding Handyman

Here we turn into a dragon, explore a stately manor, dual wield some blacksmith hammers, and do a bit of camping.

The mod for becoming a Dragon should be top choice. I mean becoming a dragon would be awesome for the console versions.
