  • Nicholas Williams

    None of these mods enhance combat, only hp damage ratios in difficulty, and add other annoyances... The dodge mod was the only real combat mod. The rest is glorified shit. It's like they spent a couple hours making the mod then they upload with the title "Dynamic combat" LMAO hahaha

  • Liam Eady

    superb selection of mods. Many I didn't have before that I must make room for now.


    Nice and Knowledgeable video but the frame rate! I could count every frame!

  • David Snow find the best mods, lady. The Bethesda gamers community appreciates you

  • Koubitz

    This video took far too long. Thanks for your patience as always my lovely Kouties!

  • Acalson

    I hate the freaking hack and slash combat. I would rather something like for honor in a game like skyrim or even something simple like just a block/ parry system.

  • Dino Palladino

    Koubitz, what is your thoughts of Skyrim Unleveled? I like its major changes and adds depth to combat. Add Combat Evolved and Vigor, and you can get a good game.

  • MTRredux

    "80 year old granny fighting a dragon is not realistic" What you think Nords are a bunch of milk drinkers!

    If skytweak ever comes out on SE it would eliminate the need for the melee combat range adjustment and enemy arrow dodge mods.Those are both settings in skytweak.

  • Dvo rak

    i hope AI will be smarter with trapsand i'd like it if AI were more brave when it comes to climbing stuff and jumping

  • MicKy

    I downloaded these mods after watching your videos, good shit, the only one I didn't like was the Mortal Enemies, the reason why is simple, Magic.. My favourite type of play is a Spellsword and I noticed that when you cast a Fireball, for exemple, until you release it your character turns like a slob.. Sure, I understand, and liked, the mechanic when it worked with melee weapons but with Magic?! Seens a bit weird.. Almost like my Fireball weights a ton..

  • Jamez0117

    When vampires attack is made by the same author as Run for your lives and is another must have.

  • Nipple Collector

    5:26 ;( poor guy just wanted a friend

  • SVM

    So, I have over 30+ mods installed right now. There all under 200 MB do u think it will interfere with gameplay? Or possibly cause lag?

  • Adam Davies
