@KirbyTheVampire im guessing your gonna play it pc? Personally i do my modding manual. Its basically copying the file to the skyrim directory and activating it via the launcher, but there are mod managers that you can download. But the easiest is if you bought it thru steam, you can use the steam workshop wich basically is just choosing the mod then it will automatically install

@KirbyTheVampire I don't think you can find anything easier than Steam to manage mods. Mods on Steam are quite limited compared to manually manage them as far as I know but for example I won't be able to mod it myself without Steam so if you want something easy use Steam.
However imo it's not worth it, every now and then you find something good but there are so many worthless mods, and so many mods that maybe are not worthless but they're not what you are looking for, that you completely lose the focus on the game. It is like when you waste time on internet searching for something and after a while even yourself can't remember what you were looking for.
I played one very good expansion mod, aside from that I never found anything else satisfying or even just barely interesting.

@Haru17 characters in Oblivion simply looked bad, it was not that they looked more cartoonish, they just looked like crap. Of course they look even worse now that we are used to much better looking things, but they were ugly even back then.
But the voice acting imo was great, I think it was far better than it is in Skyrim.

The college of Winterhold questline and the Dawnguard questline are the things I hate the most about Skyrim.

@LuckyLand modding manually is actually very easy, you just copy and paste the mod file to the data folder. Or you can downlad a mod manager to install it like steam workshop

@LuckyLand so true, mods pretty much ruin the game and you completely lose focus. They really are best for when you have completed it. Even if you get one scenery mod, you start thinking, oh wud the it be great to have bird and insect sounds in the jungle so u get another, then it takes you forever to smith and you get a mod which gets you awesome weapons that ruin the game as it's too easy! Mods for me were a huge distraction from what skyrim really is.

Just a heads up; Steam Workshop isn't used for the Special Edition on Steam. It and Fallout 4 use Bethesda's own mod service (which requires a separate account).

So I finally broke down and got Skyrim Switch AND Skyrim VR......and can't decide which to play. I'm going to be playing a LOT of Skyrim, I think.....makes up for not playing it due to bugs on the X360.

@Haru17 the close zoom in and the hideously ugly faces were just biproducts of really bad design, honestly. It was kind of new to have characters talking right to you, and they did it in a creepy close-talker sort of way.... And their deformed faces was just the bad engine and their excessive overuse of "bloom" and what was called "HDR" at the time before "HDR" was "HDR", none of which is actually HDR in photography terms....

What was campy about 2000's voice acting though? Seems no different to me than any of the modern stuff. Same 2 voices for every character of the same race aside.

I still like exploring Oblivion's world best of all, though.

So I’m in Solstheim. Is this an expansion? Getting all kinds of Morrowind memories here.

@Spanjard

Yep. You're doing Dragonborn. And yeah, it probably has a lot of nostalgia for anyone who played Morrowind.

@DarthNocturnal Thought so. Any advice on doing this sooner or later? It does feel kinda weird leaving Skyrim already... but... it’s also interesting.

@Spanjard

I don't believe there's any downside to doing it earlier (you unlock it fairly early into the main questline). And it has some really nice rewards and abilities.

@Spanjard Did you just happen upon the boat that takes you there, or did you get the quest before that? If you just got on the boat and didn't have a quest telling you to go there, you won't actually have unlocked the Dragonborn questline.

@KirbyTheVampire Thankfully I did!

I might just have to visit this place later. Three men approached me and seemed to bow before me... oh boy was I wrong. Lol

I'm level 45 and I have a fully enchanted legendary Daedric armor set, damage is maximally reduced (80%) and it looks awesome. Something that bothers me though is the quality naming. It goes Fine > Superior > Exquisite > Flawless > Epic > Legendary. The definition of flawless is perfect so why can I still improve it beyond that? And why is it called superior if it's far from superior? I could think of many names that work better.

@Sir_Anthony Superior is superior to fine. Epic is flawless but in an epic way. Legendary is epically flawless and people have heard of it far and wide. ¯(ツ)

@NEStalgia Haha allright I can live with that

I just realised how gothic I actually am. I have a vampire, werewolf and a ghost woman following me around. How spooky is that?

How can you get more than one npc in your party?

Sir_Anthony

There are certain quests where you temporarily get a follower. Once I noticed they followed me everywhere I simply didn't finish the quest. Doesn't work with every quest follower though, they also don't work like regular followers because they won't trade with you, also they can stand in the way when you're in tight places >_>, but they provide really useful in combat. The vampire lady is from the Dawnguard quest (which I do want to finish at one point) and the ghost is from ''Lost to the Ages''.
