Hello everyone! Welcome back to the "Best mods for…" weekly discussion!

If you don't know what the "Best mods for…" topics are you can find the original threads here. Last weeks discussion can be found here.

These discussions are intended to be ongoing for the full week, so make sure to contribute your own opinions and experiences at any time!

As always, the rules:

1) Be respectful – A lot of different mods get posted, as well as a lot of different opinions on said mods. Try to be respectful during the discussion.

2) Debate conflicts maturely – Nobody likes a Nazeem. If you're respectful to others, people will be respectful back. If you're disrespectful to others, people find interesting ways to kill you and post about it on r/skyrim.

3) Please keep the discussion relevant – Feel free to post mods that aren't directly related, but please try to keep all mods semi-related to the week's topic.

4) Please provide a link to the mod you're discussing – Even if you're discussing a popular mod, a link to the mod page is a massive help. People are more interested in the mod you're talking about and are more likely to look at it if there's a link.

Topic – Important/influential mods

We all know there's been some groundbreaking stuff built for Skyrim, from the practically-essential Unofficial Patch Project to literally building an entire new game inside the engine with Enderal. Usually these best mods for focus a little more, but with it being Skyrim's birthday I thought we could branch out and give some praise to the heavy hitters regardless of category!

Here's my list:

T3nd0's Skyrim Redone – I think this deserves a mention as the first massively popular total game/combat overhaul. You may not have even heard of it but mods like Ordinator, Requiem, and others all owe some tiny homage to this firstcomer.

Skyrim Together – hot drama aside, hats off to these guys for actually making a functional online multiplayer. Considering Bethesda barely did better with FO76, I think we have to respect the work and technical talent that went into this!

XP32 Maximum Skeleton – long since overshadowed by its big brother XPMSE, this skeleton mod is what originally made possible all the fancy animations and of course SoS by increasing the number of skeleton nodes (bend points) available to modders. The vast majority of animation work for both combat and… other purposes… is built on this foundation.

What's your pick?
