What the hell? Tell me shithesda didn't fuck up so badly that simply using two mods will cause my FPS to jump that much.

Pic is what my game looks like. No loss of quality while using the optimizer mods.

Also, will my 7970 crap out on me if it's running that fast?

Install TK Hitstop. I helps a bit with this if your pc doesnt have script lag.

Skyrim does not have very well polished combat, because it's not focused just on combat as much as many other games. However, compared in Skyrim you actually can make the combat really realistic, instead of being just another OP demi-god who kills everything.

It totally depends on your settings. You can increase enemy sight for example, and make sneaking harder. You also can decrease the strength of arrows, etc.

And if you really wanted to play an OP character, you would go full wizard anyway. In late game a true wizard can kill entire armies with one spell cast.

OP here

I also took out that clock mod, so that might push people to disbelieve that's mine.

The truth is, that screen shot is from an ENB config that I'm still looking for. That screenshot is from a few days ago. I've since re-done my skyrim.

That looks absolute dogshit for an ENB. the only thing ENB about it is that it has a noise filter. With a 7970 you can get something better. Just type enb into the nexus and you'll find dozens that are better.
>>266212105
So in other words, you can't be bothered to mod. Great. Don't play it then.

I dont see how this can be fun, since there is nothing challenging about it. However, sounds like you are just a powergamer and not a real role player. The funny thing is, that you complain about things, which you actually seem to like in the end. You basically want games to be shitty and unrealistic, and then complain about them being unbalanced and unrelistic in the end.

But it is when compared to better TES games. That is, Morrowind.
Every other fucking question Skyrim has you trod through a ruin with monsters in it, the least they could've done is made that fun. Morrowind has shit combat but at least many of the quests involve politics and characters in some way, instead of just sending you to collect x in cave y.

Complete bullshit. There are enough of quests just about talking to NPCs or whatever. Of course, the majority will be about dungeon raids in the end, but you have still all kinds of quests. You can work for the thieves guild and collect money from people in town by bullying them, or you can try to solve a case of a father who burned his own daughter, by searching and talking to his daughter in ghost form, or you also can just carry some stuff for some random dude up on High Hrothgar, so that the old guys up there have something to eat.

The thing is, a ton of other companies could probably do it far better than Bethesda, it just that they have no competition.
Some of the design choices and bug issues in the Elder Scrolls series are so baffling you'd think it was done by an amateur studio, Bethesda just gets off easy because nobody else is even trying to do the same things as them.

It seems to be dependent on your rig and ENB settings. My ENB preset comes with ENBoost, since it's just 5-10 lines of config, and I still dip below 25fps on a semi-regular basis. This is with about 80 other mods, including HD textures for just about everything though.

Negro, I said "every other quest", which literally means that one in two is a dungeon crawl. That's obviously not what I meant, the ratio is way more biased towards dungeon crawling than actual interesting things, but you can hardly complain I was being unfair with that statement.
I'm literally playing the game right now. Most quests are absolute shit, and seem to assume that you can have fun fighting monsters in this game. You can't.

>When you look at how horrible Morrowind combat looks like, it is no wonder that tried to get away from it as far as possible.
The combat is Morrowind is pretty much the same as the one in Skyrim. The only tactic is walking up to an enemy, walking backwards so they hit the air, hitting them in the face and repeating. The only difference is that you can miss in Morrowind, so fights against higher level opponents are more often than not impossible. I don't give a shit about what it looks like, the mechanics are the fucking same.

If you find dungeon crawling uninteresting, then why do you even play RPGs?! Dungeon crawling is the most classic form of RPG quests, and lso still the most fun. There is nothing better than exploring dungeons.

>The combat is Morrowind is pretty much the same as the one in Skyrim
It's not the same at all. The animations in Morrowind look just horrible by todays standarts.

>The only tactic is walking up to an enemy, walking backwards so they hit the air, hitting them in the face and repeating
In Skyrim you can have all kinds of combat tactics, especially if you know how to mod the game. You can sneak kill enemies, you can shoot them a bow from a far, or of course just go full melee. And when I go melee, walking backwards doesnt bring much.Much more important is to be able to block, bash and attack in the right moments.

>I don't give a shit about what it looks like
Well, many people do. Otherwise mods like removing the dice roll miss combat for Morrowind wouldnt be so successful.

That's only true when the dungeon you're crawling is interesting, or the combat system is good. I think dungeons in Pathfinder are fun simply because the combat system allows for some creativity. I don't expect computer games to be that open ended, but they have to be at least more interesting than Skyrim's combat for them to stand on their own.

There's not that much pointing and clicking, the puzzles are better than Bioshock's "wait a minute that card" but nothing exceptional.
There is also only one enemy in the entire game, and he's confined to one area, so really it's mostly a walking simulator with a nice story.

Actually, the difference between 40 and 60 isn't that bad on my end, now 30 to 60 THAT is a leap. I try my hardest to optimize though, inside buildings I get 60, outside it depends, in Riverwood for example I get 45, outside Whiterun on the "Tundra", I saw that in quotations because well, you can kinda tell it isn't a Tundra anymore, I get 55-60.

No, but chosing the right preparation and picking the right fights, picking right the right magic spell, picking the right weapon, etc, is tactics. Not to mention how tactics you can have when you mod the game and play with a party.

Devs have a limited amount of time. Corners will have to be cut somewhere.

The optimizer textures was released almost a year after the game was released, and the ENBoost was released two years after release. And they were both updated very recently.

Look, I don't hate Skyrim. I just see all these flaws that stop it from being a good game. I have absolutely no idea how you and the other casuals don't see how shitty the actual gameplay is. There's no character progression, the combat is shit, no preperation is necessary on any difficulty, the world would be terribly empty if I weren't a lorefag, and so on and so on.
I have no idea how anybody that isn't a lorefag could every stand playing this game.

Of course there is. What do you think are the perks for? Why is one able to leve up and gain MP/HP/Stamina? Why are you able to learn new spells? Why are you able to even get more gold and buy a house or have a wife? This is all character progression. You have zero idea what you are talking about.

>no preperation is necessary on any difficulty
I never played on vanilla difficulties, so I cant really judge about this, but I doubt this still very much. I think Legendary difficult is pretty hard actually. Its just shitty because its just artificial difficulty.

None of this changes the way you play, unlike Morrowind and decent rpgs. Getting stronger doesn't make you stronger because your enemies level with you. You always walk the same speed, jump the same height. You can always teleport from place to place, you can always become master of every guild without having to grow as a character, none of it actually reflects your growth. It's all just numbers that give the impression of change, but because you then measure them up against equally high numbers, the sum always remains the same.
The only reason you and other casuals haven't realized this is because you lack any critical thinking ability.

>I think Legendary difficult is pretty hard actually. Its just shitty because its just artificial difficulty.
It is shitty, but it's also not very hard. All you do is weave back and forth, it's just that if you fuck up once, you're dead. Slow-mo spell makes everything easy, regardless. Requiem makes things slightly more interesting, as combat is over faster, but it's still just walking backwards to dodge an attack and walking forwards to hit the enemy. It doesn't feel good and isn't interesting.
>>
>>266217704
>unique places
Which all look like shit. Plus dungeons are copypasta as fuck anyway.

>more quests
With the radiant quest system, Skyrim basically has an infinite amount of quests and over a hundret scripted quests. If you want even more, then just install mods.

The main reasons for playing an RPG for me are character progression and exploring an interesting world. Morrowind has both of these and Skyrim has neither.

>picking the right fights
how do you pick fights in a linear dungeon

>picking the right spell
you generally only have a couple of options unless you've raised all your magic skills equally, at which point they'll all be massively underlevelled and useless due to skyrim's awful level scaling

>right weapon
lmfao, like that matters, just pick one with high damage output that swings at the speed you like
>>
>>266214430
I've got a 760 and it runs at 60fps all on high
>>
>>266218104
>None of this changes the way you play
Of course it does. To be able to play as a mage, you need to invest into magic perks obviously. To be able to play properly as an archer, you need to invest into archery perks. To be able to play a tank, you need good armor, and good weaponry, which you need gold for.

>your enemies level with you
Many people prefer enemy scaling, because it makes the game more balanced, while still being able to level up MP/HP/Stamina, however if you dont like this, then just mod it away. Its not that hard.

>You always walk the same speed
Still better than walking like a snail in Morrowind. Thank god you are able to literally learn how to walk there lol

>You can always teleport from place to place
if you dont like fast travel, then just dont use it, or mod it away. However, many people like fast travel, thats why its in the game. Since you can mod the game, "hardcore" player just can use mods against it.

>you and other casuals
You dont even know how I play the game, you retard. It seems unthinkable for you that one is able to mod Skyrim. Only shows that you are the actual casual here.

Here's what it is
>Go to [random location] and kill [random enemy] and bring back his [random item]

>>
>>266218724
>how do you pick fights in a linear dungeon
You dont always just fight in dungeons. Did you even play the game? However, not every dungeon is linear anyway. Only bandit mines are understandibly very linear. If you want bgger dungeons then go into Dwemer dungeons.

But whatever. I am pretty tired to respond to you butthurt Skyrim haters. It makes no sense.
>>
>>266219426
Its still a quest. If you like it or not is not important. I am always happy to get a new quest to raid some dungeons.
>>
>>266219671

No, its a task, an errand, not a quest.
>>
>>266219504
If the game presents an enemy, you fight it unless you have sneak leveled absurdly high, which for the first half of the game you won't, and for the second half of the game if you do, everything else will be stronger and your arsenal weaker as a result of skyrim's awful scaling

90% of the dungeons you come across are linear. 100% of the dungeons you come across in the first half of the game are linear. the dungeons that aren't linear are "nonlinear" in the same sense that "the walking dead" is nonlinear. maybe one or two actual branches, some shit that looks like branches, and it all comes back to the exact same point a few minutes later anyway (and you miss a bunch of shit if you don't check out both branches in the end anyway). so it's just more tedious, really.

the one exception was that giant dwemer ruin that the plot forces you to explore; it's obvious they took a lot of time on that one as it's considerably more open and well-designed. but that's the only dungeon in the entire game i remember that you could actually feasibly "pick your fights" in any significant manner (aside from just sneaking past everything).
>>
>>266219134
>It seems unthinkable for you that one is able to mod Skyrim
I've trued Requiem, combat is harder but still the same shit. I've tried Duel, same shit. I'm currently using SPERG, haven't run into any truly interesting perks yet. I'm using TK Hitstop, it doesn't add as much as people say it does. I installed Morrowloot and Unique Uniques in hope of actually being able to find interesting stuff, haven't found anything so far but I'll be patient with that one. I've got TK Combat and Dodge, but just walking out of an attack is faster than dodging it.
Please tell me what mods do actually make it interesting.

>Of course it does. To be able to play as a mage, you need to invest into magic perks obviously
Quite the contrary. In order to invest into magic perks, you need to play as a mage. Your mage playstyle doesn't really change when you do get these perks.

>Many people prefer enemy scaling
Many people watch NASCAR

>because it makes the game more balanced
It doesn't

>while still being able to level up MP/HP/Stamina
It's a placebo

>however if you dont like this, then just mod it away. Its not that hard
See above, I haven't found any mods that fix Skyrim being a boring piece of shit.
>>
>>266219671
But why would you bother? The reward is almost nothing and it doesn't lead anywhere, like at least in Morrowind when they gave you shitty fetch quests you knew it was only because you're a low-ranking scrub and better quests are down the line.

you don't usually know right away whether you like or dislike a game. sometimes stuff that's fun for a few hours gets old really quick. additionally, you might find one or two parts of the game fun but not the thing the game focuses on, so you play to experience those parts despite not liking it.

Yes, whether Skyrim is a good game or not is an opinion. Its quests heavily depending on combat, and the combat being, aside from the fact that you can't miss, essentially the same as Morrowind's, are not opinions. Those are facts that you somehow can't seem to accept.

He's right, though. Out of all the 7th gen Bethesda RPG, Skyrim is probably the most "console-ized" with its simple UI, lack of satisfying game play, and simpler NPC interactions. And yet the game still plays like shit on consoles.

The vanilla PC release has weapon/item hotkeys so you don'the need to spend so much time in the menus, it runs generally better, has customizable graphics and a fuck load of great mods that add depth. And it's cheaper, too (steam sale 5 bucks).

Consoles are the non-ideal way to play them. I mean PC Sky rim even has controller support

deal with it hardcore call of duty faggot

that is called an opinion. i can understand something being more frustrating/annoying but that's still an opinion, and i'm sure it can be turned around to something positive. "badly designed" is also an opinion. some people think it has a good design and can explain the change is for the better. it has everything to do with opinions.

I like Darksiders 2 better than 1 over all but Darksiders 1 ending was much better, while's 2 was open ended.

Darksiders1 ending was like. I fucked you all up, ruined your plans, survived, best the best you could throw at me and there's 3 more of me just as powerful. They are coming, and when they arrive, we will rain a shit storm on you the likes of which have never been seen on earth, heaven or hell.

I still get chills, mang.

Uh, I'm not OP but I have it off and Vsync on. No issues. "Stealth AI for followers" is fucking up Inigo occasionally but oh well.

You did something wrong and need to use mod organizer and tes5edit to see the reason you're crashing.

Skyrim is actually really well optimized. I could run it in my old piece of shit computer which couldn't even run some 2D games.

>Implying DX9 is not enough

People are this retarded, DX11 just added tessellation (that 1% of the games use) and DX12 will just add some frontend for using the GPU as a GPGPU a la Mantle that nobody is going to use anyways.
>>
>>266225221
It's better optimised than Oblivion, at least. Wouldn't call it well optimised though, those 2D games tend to just use ridiculously high textures for their graphics, or are on some trash engine I'm looking at you Risk of Rain

>>266225041
My problem specifically is my water replacer mod and floral overhaul mod conflicted. Any water enhancement mod caused CTDs for me actually and yes I've tried several other floral and landscape texture mods but they never play well together.
>>
>>266225723
I have one called pure water. The other water mods always fucked my game.
>>
>>266225291
DX11 optimizes shader code so you can have effects without raping your frame rate. Most new games with DX11 have and will continue to use tesselation.

>>266225221
It is not but it's better than other bethesda games.

>>266216593
Bullshit bro. I played a mage and was planning to do it highly tactical.

I prepared by picking the right spells, laying traps, having all my shit charged up before going into battle, having a route of escape, using familiars, traps and normal magic in combination with modded longer spells and i still got the shit kicked out of me because i was low level.

Skyrim caps the framerate at 60 for consistent physics, not because it can't render above 60 times a second...
