Hi everyone,

I will play Skyrim some more because I want to pretend it is game of thrones.  What are some good graphical/gameplay mods that you have used to enhance your experience?

Thanks,

What kind of game do you want?  There are so many mods depending on how you want to play.

I am assuming you have all DLC.  Here are the utilities you should use to ensure mod compatibility:

Nexus Mod Manager: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/modmanager/?
SKSE: http://skse.silverlock.org/
LOOT: https://loot.github.io/

With that out of the way, I'll post what I think is absolutely essential and would recommend for anyone on a first playthrough.

SkyUI: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3863/?
Warburgs 3D Paper World Map: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/25501/?
Immersive HUD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3222/?
Less Intrusive HUD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35154/?
Better Dialogue Controls: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/27371/?
Better MessageBox Controls: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/28170/?#
Unofficial Skyrim Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/19/?
Unofficial Dawnguard Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23491/?
Unofficial Hearthfire Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/25127/?
Unofficial Dragonborn Patch: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/31083/?

What I recommend for graphics:

Skyrim HD: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/607/?
Bellyaches HD Dragon Replacer Pack: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/29631/?
Book Covers Skyrim: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35399/?
Skyrim Flora Overhaul: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/141/?
Xenius Character Enhancement: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/2356/?
Enhanced Lights and FX: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/27043/?
Pure Weather: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/52423/?
Pure Waters: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/1111/?
Enhanced Blood Textures: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/60/?
Static Mesh Improvement Mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/8655/?
Footprints: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/22745/?
Quality Snow HD 4K: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/49011/?
Better Dynamic Snow: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=13611&searchtext=

I don't recommend any major gameplay changes if this is your first time.  You can also find a lot more quality mods at Skyrim GEMS.

After installing whichever you want, run LOOT and it will organize the load order to avoid any conflicts.  There are probably some mods I have personally used that I am forgetting.  You can ask me for my thoughts on certain mods because I have used a ton.  Good luck!

If we were on reddit, I would give you gold.  Sir, you deserve all the upvotes.  *Tips Helmet*

He forgot CBBE. And yes, you can call it a graphics mod.

Body mods are usually ridiculous because they just put bigger boobs on every woman in the game

No, it's not bad. And it's not the case of CBBE anyway. It comes with more than one body style and even the thiccest one is still realistic. No bizarre giant boobs and poo poo, just good looking nudes.
