Friends, we need to talk. There’s been a lot going on lately, and while I’d normally cover that in a Life, the Universe and Everything update, I’m about to embark on a whole new adventure and go through some major life changes, so I thought it deserved its own post.
Note: This post is updated for Skyrim Special Edition! If you are looking for the mods I use with vanilla Skyrim, you can find them at the very bottom of the post!
One of the first questions I get asked whenever people stop by my Skyrim streams is, “What Skyrim mods do you use?” As Skyrim is one of my favourite games (The Elder Scrolls fangirl for life!) and modding is one of my favourite parts of these games, I figured I’d share some of my must-have mods for Skyrim Special Edition now that it’s been released.
Most of these mods have been installed using the Nexus Mod Manager, and are pretty simple to get set-up! There are also some mods available through the Mods section of the game, and I will note these where I have installed them in that way. If you see [IN-GAME] this means I installed it through the in-game Mods menu. Sometimes these are also available on the Nexus, so if you’d prefer to install that way just look them up! But I can’t guarantee they’re there, or that they work with other mods when installed this way as I have only tested those ones through in-game installation.
As many of you know, I’ve been streaming on Twitch.tv for a while now. I opened my account in 2013, but I only started seriously streaming last year (as proven by the fact that I streamed maybe twice in 2013, and only a handful of times in 2014). Most importantly, about a year ago I started streaming on a schedule, and I’ve been experimenting up until quite recently when I settled into my groove.
So I wanted to give a little update on how streaming was going! If this isn’t something that interests you, please feel free to skip over! ☺️
