1.1.1 Where can i download this mod?
This isn't a mod, im just mixing some mods for the screenshots.
1.1.2 What mods did you use?
1.1.3 Where did you get the mods?
1.1.4 What are your PC specs?
2500K @ 4Ghz + GTX670 @ 1200/7000
1.1.5 Which mods do you recommend?
Start with these guides
And check 2.1
1.1.6 Which grass mod are you using?
Is just a custom grass mod im doing and is a WIP mod so there's no download link and i don't know when will be available.
Please don't ask when i will finish it.
1.1.7 Which ENB series preset do you use?
A custom one based on Opethfeldt's ENB, check 2.2
1.1.8 Where can i download your ini?
1.1.9 What's the framerate with all this mods?
With the heaviest grass with AO and at DEEPEST forests i get from 5 to 30fps (more grass on screen = less fps), without it or at other locations at least 40-60fps (outdoors).
1.1.10 How many mods do you have installed?
I have more than 1000 mods but i only use about 100.
1.1.11 Which mods did you use in X screenshot?
I don't know, i can't remember all the mods i used/mixed for each screenshot.
1.1.12 When will the ENB preset be available?
I don't know, im only doing it for myself so i'm in no hurry. Please don't ask when i will finish it.
You can try Opethfeldt's ENB (v6.3) or wait for the newest version, check 2.2
1.1.13 Why the screenshots have better quality than the videos?
Because im not using the same mods/config for screenshots and videos.
1.1.14 Wow, 100 mods at once?
Why not if im using 30 mods for textures, 10 for face/body/hair/eyes/etc, 30 for clothers/armors and the rest are add-ons mods?
1.1.15 Do you like all of the screenshots you done?
No really, but i share almost all i take except test-screenshots i use for comparing mods/settings.
1.1.16 How is you computer?
Check it here: LINK
Recent images: LINK
1.1.17 I can't get the same aspect as your screenshots/videos, why?
Because you need ALL the mods i used for each screenshot/video scene and of course, the SAME ENB preset.
1.1.18 ENB Status?
I started tweaking it for 0.130, first screenshot: LINK
I'm also trying to tweak the weathers for this ENB.
1.1.19 Will you upload the game with the mods or just all the mods you have?
No! Just read 1.1.5 and make you own mix of mods.
1.1.20 How did you make the grass?
I increased the density through CK (Creation Kit, the game's editor) and im filling all the holes without grass through the editor too. I'm also using a custom texture and mesh, but i will change them for the final version.
1.1.21 You're getting low fps with that grass, do you need more VRAM?
NO! But i would like to try the grass with a 670 SLi ...
*The screenshots shows Skyrim without ANY mods, just Ultra without antialiasing.
1.1.22 Did you upload your modded game somewhere? I saw some Skyrim torrent downloads using your screenshots o linking this blog like here: LINK
No, that's a FAKE ! I didn't upload anything and with that kind of modded Skyrim you won't get the same as my screenshots, nonsense.
1.1.23 I have a question or advice, how can i contact you?
Just let a comment at the end of this post or send me a private message here : LINK
1.1.24 Why did you added the ads?
Because they will help me to buy another GTX670 for showcasing the grass mod for the new Youtube Channel.
Since Kotaku made this news on November i have had lots of visits (more than a million !) so i was trying some ads programs (i wanted to check how much they pay) but finally im using Google's Adsense so in a few weeks i'll remove all the others ads (pop-ups and linkbucks).
Adsense pays for visits and clicks on the ads (although they pay MUCH BETTER with the clicks) so with hundred of visits everyday maybe someday i could afford the second graphic card for Skyrim.
2.1 MODSI have more than 1000 mods and i use/mix around 100 for the screenshots/videos so this is a small example of which mods i tested and i recommend.
But keep in mind this:
-I not only using this mods.
-This isn't a complete list.
-Don't install all the mods, just try them and make your own mix.
-I won't reupload the mods if they're deleted from Nexus.
-Don't install lots of mods at the same time, install only a few (or only one) and test them.
-I'm updating this mod list.
-Read their description and screenshots.

2.2 ENB SERIES
For some screenshots I was also using gp65cj04's bokeh DOF, a custom DOF settings i done for portraits and the new bloom by Boris Vorontsov.
Opethfeldt's preset comes with FXAA Injector but for some screenshot im using a customized Sweet FX instead for Luma Sharpen, SMAA, Bloom, Tonemap, Vibrance and DPX.
Sweet FX: LINK
And there's no download link for that ENB, is still WIP and im not going to upload a beta for testing. Around 95% of my preset comes from Opethfeldt's last version, try it:
Opethfeldt ENB preset: LINK
I usually use the ENB Series GUI for a on-the-fly tweaking, so this means i change the settings almost for each screenshot.
I test every newest ENB Series dll and i don't have any "official dll" for my final preset.
UPDATE: For the last screenshots (example) im using DH ENB from Naver Cafe (LINK) but i'm tweaking it for the screenshots with the ENB's GUI.
I also enable grass/trees shadows and everyone should enable this.
I use 1920x1080 or 2560x1440 with ENB Series EdgeAA + SMAA, and of course, SSAO from ENB.
As always, these settings changes between each screenshot.
Im using a 2500K @ 4Ghz + GTX670 @ 1200mhz, enough for the unmodded game but i can get unplayable framerates with the grass mod.
