ALRIGHTY HERE’S EM PARTYATSANGUINES’ SKYRIM MOD RECS
not really in any order but here we go. note that i play special edition so most links will be for SE. however, if it’s a SE mod, it almost certainly has an oldrim version. less likely the other way around. also all the mods im personally reccing are SE mods since i. cant. play. oldrim.
please click the links for descriptions of the mods for better descriptions since im probably not the best at describing them
hnnhgnhgnhnghg i cannot sing praises of this mod enough, and i havent even finished it! (why didnt i get this SOONER!!!!!) you get to be a treasure hunter and find all kinds of sick weapons, armor, books, and other rare items and display them all in a museum, get quests to find specific items, start an explorer’s guild, and go on excavations! the quests are really great and i just asajdfkjgdfgj love it. it’s a huuuuuge mod (or at least takes a long to “complete”), so dont plan on finishing it in a few hours.
entire new map, beautiful land, great voice acting, decent quests, compelling main story, what more could you ask for? probably a day or two of playtime? maybe 3? i can’t remember.
Travel back in time to figure out why this city’s inhabitants mysteriously disappeared in this murder mystery with multiple endings! it won some pretty impressive awards too!
tw for rape but for spoilers sake, i won’t go into details. if that’s something of a concern and you don’t mind being spoiled, i can explain in a dm
kinda self explanitory. not really a main quest with this mod iirc but there’s a lot of quests involved and it’s a great mod.
also rec-ed by @garbageboy-stink-man
hey. wanna rebuild helgen with a great quest line and really great characters? then DO IT. GET THIS MOD. i honestly refuse to play without this mod.
uhhh cw for rape and slavery? it’s a bit lighter than the forgotten city warning but i can give details if anyone wants them. it’s more mentions than actual depictions.
wanna get the gray cowl of nocturnal and become the gray fox? of course you do. but you’re gonna have to work for it. kind of a long in terms of the individual dungeons/caves/lands you have to explore and puzzles to solve, less so in terms of talking to people and actually, receiving quests, but i still really recommend it
Not quest mods but:
holy shit if you are not playing with this mod GET IT NOW. wanna rp as like, literally anyone other than a prisoner to be executed at helgen? a member of the forsworn, the thalmor, a refugee, a vampire’s thrall, a regular town resident, researcher in blackreach, and plenty of others? THEN GET THIS MOD. it only affects how and where you start the game, and with what items, so it’s a pretty minor that doesn’t really do a lot, but it also does SO MUCH. no voice acting, so captions are a must, but you can just follow the quest markers and get by just fine.
Brings a lot of cut material back into the game. Quests, dialogue, NPCs, minor settlements, items, and more! Highly recommend
100% not a joke, the ONLY follower mod I have since like every other follower mod is so obviously made by a Straight Man™ who just wants to have a hot lady follow him around and make vague sexual comments all the time and be madly in love with him, or it’s some gross lame dude follower. He has a personal quest, as well as developing friendship the longer you travel with him where you can learn more about him. SO MUCH DIALOGUE, SO MANY PLACES AND ACTIONS THAT HE REACTS TO HOLY SHIT. when he blames repeating stuff on his skooma days, im just like “buddy you have like 70 times the dialogue of a normal follower, youre fine”

quest markers for those little fuckers so you dont have to blindly wander around hoping to find them
I NEED TO ADOPT ALL THE CHILDREN (well up to six)
wanna get hunted down by seven deadly assassins for reasons unknown, all with their own unique fighting styles in some pretty difficult boss fights? no? why not? (honestly im not good at fights but i found them to not be like, impossible difficult, just that it gives you the feel of being hunted down, and that you should be prepared for a tough fight at any moment)
not a great mod in terms of the fact it isn’t. voice acted. but it does allow for you to continue interacting with the blades without killing good old paarthy
eheheheheheheheheh just kinda silly but a good laff
kind of a minor thing, and it’s only really added items rather than like an entire quest, but there is an interesting subplot going on and eh i like it
i have heard pretty good things about vigilant but i also heard it’s spooky and uhhh i dont do spooky. tw for jumpscares, monsters sneaking up on you, and screaming
“One of my favorite quest-mod is Vigilant, a mod where you become a vigilant of Stendarr. Of course, since nothing ever goes well for the Dragonborn, Molag Bal take interest in you and… well I am not going to spoil it any more than that :) Just know that there is multiple endings and a lot of epic (and difficult) bosses ! The mod is originally in Japanese, but there is a really cool translation available, completed with amazing voice actors ! It is on the Nexus if you want to take a look at it” - @justsomeonesearchingwhotheyare
saw it on a top 5 youtube video, as well as on the nexus a while back. also spooky
feel free to add your own praises/critiques of the mods listed, or rec your faves in the replies or comments! im always looking for new mods myself and im sure plenty of other people would enjoy hearing about cool mods!
WIP armor mod, inspired by that mediocre Van Helsing movie but everyone says “pirate outfit!” so, er, also a pirate outfit.
It’s around 95% done, but constant clipping issues on the gloves/fingers/wrist-sleeve have been making me insane so I had to put it down for a while.
Breath of the Wild Grass Texture
A grass texture for low-end to mid end PCs, they need love as well.
SCREENSHOTS BY @brandiibuck
So I have been using Mihail Monsters and Animals: House Cats mod for the longest time. I simply could not imagine Skyrim being a land without tiny four legged cats that meow and go about their business.
The mod always was running smoothly and was compatible with about everything but it forever bugged me that there was no further way to interact with them kitties.
Now I installed a new mod called A Cats Life and you not only can purchase your own purrfect kitty you can also befriend the strays you meet around the cities and pet and feed them treats.
It’s absolutely useless for the game in itself but absolutely essential for my mental health.
Skyrim Quest Mods
Eventually, you run out of things to do in Skyrim. If you want to do more things, check out some of these! This showcase was a collaborative effort with my good friend @partyatsanguines, so don’t forget to follow her too! (You probably already are, though.)
Highly endorsed by Em, Legacy of the Dragonborn is a DLC-sized mod with a lot to offer!
“You join up with curator Auryen Morellus as his partner at the Dragonborn Museum. It adds displays for just about every unique item in the game, adds on a lot more, has multiple questlines regarding the expansion of the museum, creation of and recruitment for an explorer’s guild, quests for exploring ruins with your guildmates and saving Tamriel, and a fairly long quest where you seek out relics of previous Dragonborns in an attempt to reforge the Amulet of Kings. Also Auryen is cute.” -Em
Legacy also patches and connects to many other mods, including Moonpath to Elsweyr.
Helgen serves as Skyrim’s Kvatch - a destroyed town that never gets rebuilt to serve as a reminder of the atrocity that begins the game. If you’ve ever wanted to restore Helgen and even improve it, this is the mod for it!
With over 20 voice actors and a bunch of content, you can rebuild Helgen, stop a slavery ring, fight in a secret arena, and much more!
Ever wished you could go past Skyrim (and Solstheim) and go back to Cyrodiil? With this massive DLC-sized mod, you can! Beyond Skyrim - Bruma allows you to explore County Bruma, including the lovingly rebuilt city with 70 unique NPCs, many quests, Cyrodiilic weapons and armor, etc.
Side note, you WILL need SKSE and the memory patch, otherwise you’ll experience crashes.
Falskaar adds much to the game - a whole new land with over 20 hours of content! Falskaar is a Nord-inhabited land, alone for almost 600 years before you arrive and mark the beginning of a prophesy.
The mod itself is DLC-sized, with 26 quests, new armor, clothing and weapons, new spells and a shout, and is fully voiced!
“In a way, I know you better than anyone else, Dragonborn.”
A mysterious criminal has been spotted in Skyrim, but more may be at stake than it seems. Moon and Star requires only the base game, and provides a healthy expansion to the game - a branching main quest with 4 side quests, 9 fully voiced NPCs, and aftermath events following the main questline!
[NOTE: For those of you with canon characters from previous games, this one may not be friendly to your story!]

If there are further any questions, don’t hesitate to shoot them in my direction. I will gladly answer what I can.
Finally done with the chocolate mod!
I added in around 30+ varities of creams, chews, cordials, and truffles.
They’re two use, so when you bite into one you get a half a chocolate back and you can see the gooey insides, because if you’re going to make a gourmet chocolate mod, you might as well be weird about it.
new and good skyrim mods on the nexus:
- mod that makes khajiit tails fluffier
- mod that livens up riften’s leaf piles
- mod that adds a vast array of winter outfits to the game
- mod that lets you claim conquered bandit strongholds for your faction
- mod that adds an andrewsarchus to skyrim
you don’t want an andrewsarchus in skyrim? wrong. you just don’t know you want an andrewsarchus in skyrim
(note: haven’t tested these yet so your mileage may vary)
I was testing out the Companion NPC mod, and here are my fave screenshots! It’s currently in alpha build so there will be a few bugs, but I’m really excited to see how it gets developed!

I am a glutton for punishment, and making another kitchen is testament to that. However, I really love the simple Scandinavian design and had to have it in my game. With a simple pull-drawer design, it will be very versatile without being overtly modern. I have also made a set-only sink for this kitchen since I wanted to do an under-counter mounted farmhouse sink. I love my other countertop designs, but wanted something more inbuilt here, and love the outcome.
I have finally updated my older animal mods! I don’t know if tumblr still hates external links in posts, so I won’t include them here. Thank you for your patience as I know these took a long time! Please don’t hesitate to report any issues to me on their mod pages.
The first - “Realistic Wildflower Grass” is a grass pack for the new More Grass framework, which allows for a variety of different grass sprites to be spawned at a time. So naturally, I got to work on trying to recreate the chaos and liveliness of a flowering meadow as best as I could.
The pack adds several dozen new grasses over the course of the year, all roughly based on real wildflowers and with the intent of recreating the textures and hues of a wildflower meadow during their respective season.
The second mod - “Seasonal Wildflowers” - is a big one for me. With Seasonal Wildflowers, I’ve added 15 craftable wildflowers into the game, all based very carefully on various real species of wildflower. The wildflowers, when placed, change with the season, budding in the spring, blooming in the summer, reaching their apex with slightly changing leaves in the autumn, and finally becoming snow-tufted spent husks in winter.
The two packs in conjunction, I hope, will add a bit of seasonal immersion to your farm, something that is really precious to me.
