Skyrim Mods

Skryim was the first game I ever modded. And until I modded the game, I never played past level 10! Depending on the save – I am playing with up to all of these modes.

I use the Nexus Mod Manager for my skyrim mods since my favorite mod is no longer supported or on the Steam Workshop. It’s not a bad program and with my current (tiny) level of mods I’ve not run any many problem. If you’re just starting with modding skyrim, I can probably help, but keep in mind my info is rather basic and I won’t be able to get you beyond where I’ve gotten myself.
