Immersion is one of those little things that makes the world feel like it's not just an empty husk.  I mean, it's still pretty empty but this guide will alleviate the boredom... or pain. These mods can range from big content packs, to smaller tweaks. Please note that most mods with the word "Immersive" in the title are most likely created by a dumbass who's just trying to advertise his mod to other dumbasses.
In this section, we will discuss:
-Alternate Starts
-Audio and Music
-Immersive Overhauls
-Backpacks and Gear
-Roleplaying Elements
-Nature and Weather
-Miscellaneous Immersion mods

Alternate Starts

Dont you hate it when you want to make a new character but you have to go all the way through Vault 111? Well with this mod, you can totally forget about Shawn and go out into the Wasteland with no care but your own sense of adventure!

Start Me Up - Alternate Start and Dialogue Overhaul

Provides Alternate start, Quick start, Normal start options. When you use one of the alternate start paths, there are over 800 dialogue edits, with voice and lip sync, so your character is no longer the mother/father of Shaun (or even a Vault Dweller, if you want). Great for role players.

Atmosphere and Magic

You might not think that audio plays a big role in immersion, but it actually does. Walking through a forest with the sounds of nature and light hearted fantasy music in the wind makes you feel right at home in a game like this. Also because listening to the song, Under an Ancient Sun, can get tiresome and repetitive for some people. A good change of music can make a big difference in how you want your game to feel like!


To make a mod good, sometimes you have to rework a certain aspect of the game. Adding new features while still keeping the game stable and fit with the rest of the original work. Here are a few overhaul mods that add brand new features to the game that will change your experience of Skyrim as you know it now.
However, only use these mods on light loads as they are script heavy and impact your game.

Backpacks and Gear

Any immersion nut knows that to make an immersive character, you have to wear a bunch of random shit on yourself! Backpacks, capes, potions, books, hoods, torches, etc. are all viable options to make your character look like a person who actually lives in the frigid lands of Skyrim. However, this list is mostly just backpacks because I fucking love backpacks.

Roleplaying Elements

Do you want to RP in a single player game? Well my friend that sounds kind of dumb, but we can at least help you out with some very unique mods.

Nature and Weather

It's the small things that you admire in a vast game like this. Usually when you want to get immersed into something, you take it slowly and observe all the hidden elements it has to offer. Mods are no different.


Mods that don't fit into any of these previous sections. I honestly don't know where to put them, but here they are!


Q: Why isn't this or that mod in the guide?
A: This guide was made specifically so that all or atleast most of the contents on this page will work together without any compatiblity issues unless notified on the mod page.



Q: Will you be adding more to these guides?
A: Of course!  We'll try to keep all the guides up to date and will notify everyone if something has changed or has been added on. We also accept submissions if the mod is good enough!
