Haven't played the game yet, but wanting to know what steam workshop items will make the game better on the first playthrough?
Just got Skyrim on Steam, what add ons should I get?
Quality Map with Roads. (Also available on Steam Workshop).
Unofficial Patch. (Also available on Steam Workshop).
Amazing Follower Tweaks (Also available on Steam Workshop).
The Secret Room of Breezehome (Also available on Steam Workshop).
Glowing Ore Veins (Unavailable on Steam Workshop)
@beanman25: I'd suggest Sounds of Skyrim. They add some amazing soundwork outside with birds and such during day, and owls and other night creatures during dark. A second pack also adds sounds to dungeons, which really amps up the creepyness (these are also on the steam workshop).
Play the game for a while find out what bothers you, and then go and get mods that can fix that.
this. see what the game offers first
And then I down loaded Camping, Basic Needs (hunger, thirst, sleep etc.) and Hypothermia. Turned it into the game I was hoping it would be out of the box. But I'm weird like that.
The fur cloaks and Better Horses or whatever it's called are really good too. Allows you to store items on your mount (like aforementioned camping equipment and rations).
Don't listen to some of the people saying to play it as it was in Vanilla. Save yourself some headaches, and more importantly the experience of shittiness, and download SKSE, SkyUI, Quality World Map, and Categorized Favourites Menu. After that everything else is up to personal taste, but those four mods are an absolute must. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
After that though there's plenty out there. ENB's, flora overhauls, water overhauls, follower overhauls, and on and on. But get SkyUI though. The interface was not designed for a mouse and keyboard.
