Skyrim has been out for over seven years, but the game has managed to withstand the test of time, thanks largely to a dedicated modding community. Ultimate Skyrim is a long-term project that has used dozens of mods to create a total conversion of the game, reconstructing almost every element of the experience. Version 4.0 is now available and includes a utility that sorts and installs all mods for you.
Ultimate Skyrim focuses on RPG, and it changes the version of Skyrim (and keep in mind, it's Skyrim Classic, not the 2016 special edition) to become a much more game-oriented game. survival. The mods that it includes add mechanisms of temperature and hunger, they revise the combat system and generally make the game much more unforgiving. It revolves around the huge reconstruction of the Requiem role-playing game, which in itself makes Skyrim a much more dangerous place.
A very interesting feature of this version is that it uses a program called Automaton, which automates the creation and installation of modification modules. Using Automaton, you can download a file that recreates the exact installation settings of a modpack, avoiding the conflicts that sometimes occur when using multiple mods from multiple creators.
This is a good thing because Ultimate Skyrim uses a lot of mods. There is still a bit of a process to keep things running, but the official Ultimate Skyrim site has a step-by-step guide on how to get started with the installation process.
