My Favorite List of Skyrim Mods

Like every other Skyrim fan out there I too have a list of mods I can’t start a playthrough without.
Majority are from Skyrim Nexus Mods while some are from the Steam workshop.

Disclaimer: These mods for Skyrim are offered as is by the Nexus modding community. I do not take any responsibility for any harm caused by the installation/use of the following mods. If you don’t know what you’re doing please consider reading skyrimmods reddit beginner’s guide and nexusmods faqs.


Use Vortex for installing mods.

List of Skyrim Mods

Some mods require Dragonborn, Hearthfire or Dawnguard DLCs to be installed.

If any of the required DLC is missing then Vortex will complain about it during deployment. A temporary fix is to delete or rename the conflicting files. If the game starts crashing then disable those entirely.

Skyrim’s official High Resolution Texture Pack (Free DLC) is recommended but not necessary.

Make sure to read the description for each mods in case manual edits are required for installation.
