    what mods would you count as 'essential mods' for this? i dont really want anything like the survival ones where you are effected by cold/hunger/thirst/ect... but i would like fun stuff and anything that makes combat better

    • I have been lying down and thinking for the last while why it's different.

      My answer is mentalities.

      On a console; when you are playing a game that cannot be modded. Because it is on a console, because you have that limitation, you are not thinking about what mods could improve the game for you. It's not the sort of thought that occurs while playing on console because it's not an option.

      For how a human mind works, having the option there, the option existing in the first place, it opens our minds to considering the possibilities and the potentials of what we could do with that option.

      Having the ability to close or minimise the game and right away, on the same platform, open up a web browser to search for a mod, an improvement, a fix and whatever else, it can make a big difference to our thinking patterns while we are playing. Being able to add that mod right then and there, and go straight back into the game, is really important.

      That's how this works, the way I see it. And different minds work different ways, I know. I just think the majority of people would not think about things if they were not even options for them.

      That's fine if you are a person who thinks of things that way, and if you actually are, why are you asking on here for suggestions? If you had already played through and thought about what you would improve, you would not feel like asking others what the essential mods are, because you would have thought of that and done a search for yourself. You would know what would be essential for you.

      Don't get me wrong, asking for suggestions for mods is fine, but the keyword is "essential" mods. As I said, you would know what those were if you were thinking about it while playing on another console.

      Sorry, for another long post and for my amateur psychology. I am trying to explain it as best I can.

    • Also, the feel of the game is different on PC and some gameplay factors don't work as well. One of them is for example the UI.

      Skyrim's vanilla UI does not translate well to PCs, since it has been designed for consoles in mind. As far as mods go for the UI, there's some really popular ones and there are other options to those. But again, as I said, it's about what is right for you. There are some people who don't mind the vanilla UI even on PC. Many of them play with a controller rather than a keyboard and mouse. So, just keep things like that in mind. How you play is important.

      It's also important to know how well your PC handles without mods. Skyrim is not well optimised. Like at all. So, find out yolur PC's limits before adding mods in there, since your system may barely be able to handle Skyrim on its own. Your system might not even 'like' mods. Which is sort of convoluted to explain, but there are configurations that have a simple "nope" response to any user edits.

      Look, I am sorry for all this convoluting of the issue and of what you're asking. But to me, modding is not just something you or anyone jumps right into.

    I don't watch UFC and I'm in a silly mood due to sleep deprivation, but Ronda Rousey seems like Braith all grown up.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate made me love large monster combat, especially how you can mount them. If Dragons were to return in the next Elder Scrolls some how, adding a mounting animation where you can still deal damage would be cool to have.
