Skyrim Graphics Tweaks?


6 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi Fellow Neowinians,

I have played Skyrim in the past - all 'high' because well...i like pretty. I recently saw a post on 9gag of skyrim screen shots that looked incredible! I mean...amazing. I was called something along the lines of 'skyrim with 100 mods' - if you google it, i think it comes up.

I have tried in the past, "high res patch" and all that jaz... its good, but its not especially remarkable. Anyone know of mods, tweaks, etc, that you can throw together to get some yummy pretties out of skyrim? (I mean MORE pretty than it already is...)

Thanks for any advice =)

SweetFX looks good, similar to lighting effect Oblivion had.

Wow guys, thanks! I'll check them out tomorrow =)

ASOT, STEP, and SweetFX look amazing!

I think i'll try and keep testing with additional mods until it gets to a point its nice, but still playable =P If he gets 5-30 FPS with a GTX670..i'm going to struggle with my poor little 6850 =P

Thanks again for the tips!

If you want the ultimate in graphical enhancements:

Texture Pack Combiner

Sharpshooters Extreme Graphics Vision ENB:

There are extra high res bodies and faces too.

And finally, there are ini tweaks, for instance changing ugrids from 5 to 7 or 9. And shadow enhancements because let's face it, the default skyrim shadows are horrible.

A word of warning though, you'll need a beast of a system to run it all on 1080p and higher. I'm talking a core i5 3750k oc'd to 4+ghz, 8gb 1600mhz+ dual channel ram, 3/4 GB VRAM discrete gpu, and an ssd ideally. You can go ahead and disable AA as well once you have all the textures installed and running, you don't need it with all hi res textures, it just makes things blurry.
