Complete Skyrim Graphics & Content Overhaul

By Published March 23, 2012 at 5:29 pm

No matter how much hype surrounds a game at initial launch and no matter who the maker is, even great games inevitably become stale and tiresome. Luckily, series that are backed by huge modding communities -- like the Elder Scrolls games or the Baldur's Gate community -- possess the astounding ability to imbue a fading game with invigorating content, potentially bringing a dying breed back to life.


This total Skyrim Overhaul includes the best Skyrim graphics mods, content mods, and mechanics changes to date. We'll briefly cover some of the worst Skyrim crashes and how to fix them, as well.


As with Oblivion and Morrowind before it, Skyrim's community sprung to life at the drop of the official modding kit, and although our previous graphics mod article was entirely comprised of core hacks, the ones below have had time to mature and grow on the fully-functional toolkit. Total conversion mods haven't yet begun to flourish, but we can combine multiple mods to achieve something close.

Let's dive into the graphics, content, and mechanical/functional mods that you should consider!

Note: Due to page load times and high server demand, we've split this article into three clean, easy sections: Graphics, Content, and Mechanics Fixes.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
