WOW ... More then 300 endorsements I'm glad to see now ... many many many thanks to you!!!

Every feedback to my tweaked INIs are welcome to make them better in future!!!

I'm searching for a modder who can make my heroine SALINA as a standalone follower now!!! If you want to see how she looks, you can find her under the screenshots scection here!!!

SKYRIM BASIC INSTALLATION description includes some recommandations of some Mods from the SkyrimTuner's ENB Presets sites. I thank him very much for his great inspiration and his contents of his sites, I have learned many stuff in modding Skyrim, too!!!

New screenshots will be coming soon as possible, if I have the time for it!!!

Every update will be released soon as possible!!!



Update: Now I have found many issues ... I hope all ... in my modded game and actually I am working hard on a better install- and load-order to be able to go ahead here next time!!!

Status: My not less modded game needs changes to solve many issues, which have made it unplayable in the last time!!! Every fix and mod have to be checked, if it is outdated or obsolete now!!! This isn' t very easy to reproduce all!!! For this reason it will be needed more time for new versions to be able to release them here - I am so sorry about that and hope it will be finished soon as possible!!!

Latest versions of my little work:

TESV INIs HQ Settings Private Pure Version 1.0.9

Based on the versions before and slight updated how I did it also in the previous version!!!
Note: Please read the included README file!!!

Just a little tip:
The weather tweak can be activated in the Skyrim.ini optional, if you erase the ";" in front of the 3 lines under the latest section [Weather]!!!
For better understanding:
- Open Skyrim.ini with notepad
- Search section [Weather]
- Erase the following:
;[Weather]                ---> Erase the ";"
;fSunBaseSize=850    ---> Erase the ";"
;fSunGlareSize=0      ---> Erase the ";"
- Save it - exit - that's all!!!



Note: Please read the included "Changelog" file!!!

To fix the ropes flickering if using ENB I can recommend better ropes for skyrim by xrayy to install and load (using Mod Manager) after Tobes Highres Textures by Mr Bravo aka Tobe listed in the guide!!!


Previous versions:
TESV INIs HQ Settings Private Pure Version 1.0.8
based on the version 1.0.6 how I did it also in the previous version!!!

About TESV INIs HQ Settings Private Pure Version 1.0.6:

A very special thanks to Imrazon who has tested these INIs!!!

Global Information:

My INIs are also configurated to some - but not all - recommended Mods you can find on the also great PureVision ENB and RealVision ENB by SkyrimTuner pages. He has described a really perfect  good Basic Installation which I use!!! If you want more to know about it - no problem - then ask me about it!!!

ENB preset I had used before my actually now:
True Vision ENB (Natural-Version)
by Bronze316 complete except the More Dynamic Shadows ... Mod, which caused lightning problems in my modded game.
Also I have customized the ENB preset without DOF, cause I use the DYNAVISION plus Patch and some Skyrim and ENB INIs configurtions for better smooth gaming!!!
 ... There are many more!!! If you want more to know - no problem - ask me about it, too!!!

ENB preset I am using now:
Read on top under NEW(S), please!!!

You ever have to follow the descriptions of every of your favorite ENB Preset carefully how to tune the INIs correctly, if you want to get best results!!!

Additional Informations:

I. HQ = High Quality:

Can be different full "Ultra Settings" or a mix between "High and Ultra Settings"!!!

II.  These contents are included in my tweaked INIs:

- Most settings recommended by the S.T.E.P. Project Wiki

III. What is a Basic Installation description? Some Mods listed to start a stable running modded Skyrim with all contents linked!!!


If you have problems with 2K and higher Textures or Blood Mods then try this:

Open SkyrimPrefs.ini, search the following section and delete them!!!


More about it here:

Additional Notes:
Please use only my release, if you have a powerful graphic card, CPU 4 Cores or higher and 4GB or more RAM!!!

1. Please make a backup from your own before and change both of my released INIs to your
    language, to your graphic card and monitor resolution in the SkyrimPrefs.ini!!!

2. Unpack and replace with your INIs you can find in ... Documents\My Games\Skyrim
    for ModOrganizer\profiles\the profile you want to use

3. That's all - have fun!!!

Some help for beginners (by Imrazon):
To adapt my Inis to your system and game:
Open my skyrimprefs.ini with an editor, preferably with  Notepad++
search the line sD3DDevice= and type in your graphic card behind = . If you do not know, what to write in here, open your back
uped skyrimprefs.ini. There you find under the same line the correct
identification of your graphic card.
Just copy all what is behind = and paste it also behind = in my skyrimprefs.ini. Don´t forget the quotation marks!
If you use a different ENB preset you may also adapt the line fGamma=1.4000. Other ENB presets require a differnet value here. I.G. RealVison ENB by SkyrimTuner requires the value 1.2400, Rudy ENB requires the value 1.0000.
To get the correct value I recommend to read the description of the ENB
preset you use. In case you can´t find any Information about that don´t
shy to ask the publisher of this ENB preset in the comments.
My Inis are setted for use with mouse and keyboard. If you use a game pad, I recommend to open the menu after starting the game and
change the settings there. That´s the easiest way. I recommend to
deactivate gamepad rumble.

A global Note to all my INIs:
I can't garant that the settings runs on every machine. That's your choice to test it or leave it, please!!!
