So I'm new to PC gaming


Guest

Recommended Posts

I bought SKYRIM L.E for $16 as a pc disc bc I prefer physical over a steam digital copy download. Lovers lab & nexus should work fine for me right? Also like I said I'm new to pc gaming if I buy a control that looks just like a 360 control but compatible for pc would I be able to play Skyrim like I use to on my xbox360? - thanks

You certainly can. The trick to getting mods to work properly with your game is to make sure all the parts match. You can go online and download the latest official patch for the game to get up-to-date, then just be sure to have installed all the proper requirements for each individual mod- look for the proper heading and it'll have any prerequisites listed that you'll need to install for anything you might want to mod.

 

If you're completely fresh to the whole idea of modding, there are plenty of helpful tutorials on each section you'd want to try out. (ex http://www.loverslab.com/topic/25219-getting-started-with-sexlab-how-to-install-sexlab-and-its-requirements/ ) LL has a great community here. Just need to poke around a bit to get a feel for it, then dive in!

 

Good luck, and enjoy the mods. :)

Another thing you really want to do as well is keep up-to-date on the Unofficial patches for Skyrim and the DLC. Once you start adding mods you'll regret not playing Skyrim on PC sooner.  Just look around Nexus at some of the higher endorsed mods, Skyrim can look practically as good as a 2014 game. People act like consoles are so much better. I'd like to see a PS4 or XBOXone trying to run Skyrim with all the HD textures and improvement mods as well as an ENB at 60FPS when even an average gaming rig (which is about 8 generations ahead of consoles minimum) will drop under 50FPS even with the most minimal ENB. ENB is a mod that tweaks the lighting in Skyrim to make it look breathtaking.

Yes as long as it is a legit copy it will work. Whether you buy it on steam or in on disc, you have to install steam so it is a moot point.

 

Controllers work for Skyrim, though a few mods like defeat are not designed to work with a controller. But the mod author plans to eventually get around to making it work that way.

 

I would strongly urge you to go watch Gophers great video series on Beginners Guide to modding Skyrim. If you watch it and follow along in the video series which is about 10 parts long. By the end you will have a good grasp of how to mod skyrim. You can find the video's on youtube under Gophergaming then just look for his Beginners guide to modding Skyrim series.

Do you not still have to validate via steam with a disc?

 

Usually if i've brought a game on disc (rare these days) i still end up using steam for the multiplayer/validation section

 

If you do have to validate then i doubt it will be any different to doing it if you'd downloaded.

You do, my friend bought a disc copy and had to install steam to validate and update skyrim.

Everything should work fine. I would highly recommend starting with Mod Organizer (it isn't as hard to learn as people claim it is, assuming you have some brains), and also go to GEMS and Nexus and find highly recommended mods. Base mods that you almost need to have are SKSE, all the unofficial patches, and Skyrim HD 2K textures, as well as xp32 maximum skeleton and Fores New Idles. I might have forgotten some stuff but these mods are required for many many mods out there (prerequisites).

 

Good luck.
