Mods Keep Skyrim Looking Shit Hot In 2016

iriarsham posted these screenshots over the weekend, to remind us all that despite its advancing years and creaking engine, Skyrim — with help from fans — continues to look absolutely stunning.

A massive part of that has to do with the mods he's got running, of course (including a trio of ENB effects), but then would people bother — or would the results be as impressive — if the landscapes and character designs they were working on weren't already fantastic?

Also, note the improvements to stuff like lighting and textures over the past four years...

    These screenshots are all well and good but can we get some important ones of Horse Rectums?

    and they would for fallout 4 too IF THEY WOULD RELEASE THE TOOLS ALREADY.
    bunch of dicks they are :(

      If they released the tools how would they manage to ship any DLC??? Modders would get there first.

    Biggest thing that put me off Skyrim graphics wise was the rocks, the landscape and larger hill rocks are VERY angular and no matter what texture you put on them they still look like a terrible polygon to me (esp at a distance).

    Wish someone would redo the mesh for all the hill/landscape rocks in the game so their not terrible polygons triangles and squares. (and also remove the fog/whitewash on them at a distance, makes them look very unnatural as the darkness etc disappears from them).

      You're welcome :)

    My Skyrim looks nothing like this. How about a 2016 modding guide for Skyrim, kotaku? That'd be really nice!

      Nexus Mods has a great up to date guide on it, however it is really a matter of hit and miss with what works and what doesn't, load orders, patches, extra software, etc. Once you start you can't stop that's true, but you will hit brick walls more times than things actually working even with the guides. It comes down to you basically installing or creating mods, and then hoping it works most of the time haha. If it works? YAY me! If it doesn't? Uninstall, find cause and start again.

      But yeah, a nice 2016 guide on how to get you started with Skyrim mods would
      definitely be awesome :)
