2 hardcore 4 me.

Replaces all of the vanilla and DLC music tracks with some brand new ones, mostly from Vindsvept.

Skeletons of Daggerfall
Brings back the crazy sounding screams skeletons made from Daggerfall and adds them back into Skyrim.
Morrowindic Sneak Attack
Changes the sneak attack and critical hit sounds from Skyrim and replaces them with their Morrowind counterparts.
Immersive Sounds - Compendium
Immersive Sounds - Compendium is an all-in-one package of all my previously released modules in the series. Together they drastically alter the sound and atmosphere of Skyrim. It is the culmination of almost a year of work since June 2013. It's more than a mere sound replacer. It is just as much of a sound expansion, altering and adding to the systems behind Skyrim's sound playback to create a richer and more varied experience. A mod that's not required but is eager to be tried!
Ultra Realistic Crossbow Shoot Sound
Replaces the "THUNDER" like crossbow sounds and replaces them with some pretty realistic sounding crossbow noises. This ONLY replaces the crossbow shooting sounds and not the reloading and impact noises.
Real Arrow SFX
A highly exaggerated but great sounding archery sound replacer. It comes with Pull, Fire, and Impact sounds. DO NOT add the impact sounds, they are really bad.
If you hated the zombie moaning, worry no more! This mod tells zombies to keep their mouths shut.
The most popular and most commonly used music overhaul. This mod allows you to add your own music to the game. It also comes with extra features so that you can truely customize where a song can be played. You want jazz to play in dungeons only? Sure! Heavy metal at early mornings? You can do that too!
Better Horse Pain Sounds
I don't know about you, but the horse noises in Skyrim are ear shattering. Even the simplest of pain noise sounds like the horse is getting castrated. This mod just says "goodbye castration noises, hello normal horse sounds".
Better Animal Footsteps
It basically replaces the old footstep sounds with new one's that sound more genuine to the specific animal. Horkers will sound like floppy wet masses of fat while Mammoths will sound more like earth shacking monsters.
Sounds of Skyrim
Originally a horribly bloat-inducing mod, Sounds of Skyrim was fixed up a little while back. It adds ambient noises to dungeons, wilderness, and towns, making things feel more lively It is still marked possibly unstable, due to the scripts being possibly intensive for low-end computers. Possibly...
Bards Sing Rarely
Makes bards sing less frequently.
True 3D Sound for Headphones
Don't know why I hadn't added it before, I use this. A .dll that adds true 3D directional sound to the game. Makes a hell of a difference when using headphones.
A simple, intuitive camping mod for Skyrim. Build a campfire and pitch a tent, using only existing items with no spells/powers added.
SunHelm Survival and needs
SunHelm is an all in one survival and needs mod. It includes many features such as Hunger, Thirst, Fatigue, and even hypothermia mechanics all while attempting to stay as streamlined as possible.
Frostfall - Hypothermia Camping Survival
The ultimate survival overhaul mod. This mod adds new weather mechanics that make you feel like your actually in a frigid landscape. You can't go around wearing skimpy armors in the middle of a snowstorm anymore and expect to live. Now you have to wear weather appropriate gear and make a campsite to sleep or wait for time to pass by.
Campfire - Complete Camping System
Campfire is the most feature-rich stand-alone camping mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It was created from Frostfall 2.6's unique, immersive camping system. Now, you can enjoy an unparalleled camping experience in conjunction with some of your other favorite survival and immersion mods.
Basic needs are a common target for mods, since food and drink in the vanilla game are utterly useless, and sleeping is only marginally beneficial for skill increase bonuses. This mod gives these game mechanics a bit more weight, but without introducing a survival mini-game where one needs to keep large stores of food and drink in one's inventory, or stay near an inn to sleep every handful of hours.
Run For Your Lives
I'd run straight to my house if I saw dragons attacking my town. Hell, that would be anyone's reaction! This mod makes NPCs go inside buildings during random attack events, allowing them to not be killed by random assholes.
Simple Leather Backpack

Winter is Coming
Just like cloaks of Skyrim, this mod adds cloaks to NPCs, leveled lists, and to the crafting menu. However, these cloaks are fur and more oriented to the cold. It also comes with hoods that match the fur cloaks and is compatible with Frostfall to keep you warmer.
Adds a craftable telescope that you can equip. Unlike the equipable map, this one actually works! You can zoom in and out and look at in all directions! It just works!
Adds Rambo style bandanas to the game. You can craft them at tanning racks and they come in dozens of colors!
Just like the Bandanas, you can craft these at tanning racks and they come in dozens of colors! They also come in three different styles; a full blindfold, and a half blindfold for each eye.

Wintersun - Faiths of Skyrim
Wintersun adds religion and worship. Pray, worship at shrines and follow the tenets of your deity to strengthen your bond with the deity and eventually reward you with divine strength. In addition to the divines and daedric princes, the mod adds many other deities from Elder Scrolls lore with their own shrines.

An alternative to Living Takes time. Make game time pass when performing actions like crafting, reading, eating, building campfires, Hearthfire home construction. etc.. Time Flies is a modified version of Living Takes TIme with Hearthfire, Campfire (Frostfall), iNeed and Honed Metal support, also a "framework" to help you adding support for other mods.

Simply Knock is the first feature-complete mod that allows you to knock on locked doors of houses in Skyrim. If anyone is home, they will answer the door!

Become a Bard
Become a Bard lets you play all of the instrumental and voiced songs included with the game or choose from dozens of new songs. It also adds new radiant quests to expand the options for a bard in Skyrim.
A total hunting overhaul! This a very customizable mod that changes how hunting works and actually makes it worth your time. You can skin animals like in Far Cry 3 and you can even track your hunting stats like how much of a certain animal you killed or how many you've skinned. Honest work for honest gold.
Adds carriages that ride around Skyrim. You can ride on them as well as watch NPCs ride them.
One With Nature - Dynamic Animals and Creatures
One With Nature is a mod designed to give the player control over how certain animals and creatures react to their character without altering their original AI or faction relationships. When you open the MCM, you will find a list of dropdown menus for a variety of NPC groups. Each menu offers five reaction settings: Vanilla, Allied, Friendly, Cowardly, and Defensive. Depending on your play style, you can apply different reaction settings to different NPC groups.
Improved Camera (BETA)
REJOICE, our time is upon us! For a while now there was a unofficial backport of Enhanced Camera for SE floating the pages on Reddit, but it was very buggy and updates were scarce, however a kind soul has taken upon him to update the mod and make it work as good as, if not better, than Enhanced Camera for LE. While the mod is still in BETA it works very well and the author says it'll be ready for mass release in about a month (written July 31st 2019)
Immersive First Person View
*comes bundled with .NET Script Framework, which is a really nice crash log report* A SECOND option on the "look down to see tits" category, IFPV works kind of wonky at the moment, but its being maintained by the same person that is updating Improved Camera, so updates might be quite frequent apparently. Between this and Improved Camera is just personal taste at the moment, try both and decide. Not at the same time obviously. You're not dumb are you? Are you?
Joy of Perspective
(don't use this, there're better alternatives available now, see Improved Camera and IFPV) So... uh... the author of Enhanced Camera said he won't release it for SE... He'll work on making JoP work... cuz it may work with Xbox too... BRUH, JUST RELEASE ENHANCED CAMERA.
Player Size Adjuster
This mod allows you to change your height and camera height in MCM. So now you can switch from first to third person without any weird screen height differences anymore! You can also edit how much you grow when you transform into a vampire or werewolf AND how fast you move at your current size.
No more Radial Blur
No Blur. Removes that awful blur and eye adaption effect that every Triple-A dev somehow thinks is good.
Khajiit Speak - Complete Dialogue Overhaul
Recommended for any Khajiit players. This mod changes all the player dialogue options into khajiit speak. So instead of saying "I hate Nazeem", your character will say "This one dislikes the one called Nazeem".

My Home is Your Home
Hate having to find your friends back where they originally were? How about you tell them that they now live where you tell them to.
This mod brings life into your family as they actually do shit instead of sticking around the house like bums. Why remind ourselves of our Dad's feelings about us? Adds a spell that allows you to tell your kids to shut the hell up.

Point The Way
Signs now show you where each hold is and what nearing towns are around the area.
Ducks and Swans for Skyrim
Adds ducks and swans to lakes and ponds. They swim around and act like waterfowl, what do you expect?
More Village Animals
You're on a farm, right? And you see 2 cows and 1 chicken. How the hell is that farm still running? This mod throws that question away and adds a decent amount of farm animals around Skyrim.
Wonders of Weather
A new modpack which combines Splash of Rain, Rainbows, and Shooting Stars mods! Splash of rain adds more ambient rain noises and rain splashses, Rainbows adds rainbow,s and Shooting Stars add to the sky at night time. All of these mods are purely aesthetic and are here for your viewing and hearing pleasure!
Makes storms MUCH MUCH MUCH better. Instead of a light shower, you get heavy rainfall with tons of new thunder sound effects.
Smoking Torches and Candles
Smoke comes out of torches now. You'd think this would be in the vanilla game and not a mod...

Skaal Kid Aeta Coat
Amongst the Skaal is a single token child, a girl named Aeta. You may have noticed her by the fact that she is conspicuously gabred in generic kid clothes while everyone else has skaal parkas. Not only is this kinda jarring, it is also a bit immersion-breaking because it's FREAKIN' COLD in the Skaal Village and the generic girl outfit is not very warm-looking.

PC Head Tracking and Voice Type

Unique Region Names

Even Better Quest Objectives

This mod adds opening/closing and idle animations to several objects that should have had them in the first place like bags and secret hatches.
