About this image

Of course, after getting my LE edition of Skyrim looking and feeling as beautiful as possible, the SKSE64 alpha edition is released out of the blue. Don't get me wrong, I am PUMPED, and very thankful to the team- but this leaves me with a bit of an issue. Do I:

1: Continue playing Skyrim LE. Skyrim SE will probably eventually have RaceMenu and stuff, but if that's another year from now, it doesn't really effect my decision right now.

2: "Return" to Skyrim SE. I still have all my old saves and poke around in it from time to time, so it's not like I have to reinstall. Since returning to LE, however, I can't help but notice this weird blurry haze in the SE that refuses to go away. I think it was Beth's way of "remastering" the meshes- blur them until you can't see anything. :P I've also never been satisfied with Madeleine's face, and, for me, dress up and character creation is half the fun in Bethesda games. Still, I miss not crashing every hour or so. And when it's not so damn foggy outside, some things do look better.

3. Abandon Skyrim for now and go play something else. Probably Oblivion. I think I've been trying to decide between LE and SE for a good week, and it's killing my soul.

    I'd say jump into Oblivion for a while until Skyui, racemenu and others come out. I don't think it'll be too long until we see them pop up on the SSE nexus, especially if other people who know how to port mods that require SKSE are able to get permission to do so if the author has no interest in porting them.
    Right now I've taken a break from Skyrim to try and make my way through Morrowind for once, so once mods that require SKSE come out I won't have blasted through all of Skyrim and I can pick up where I left off with some of the best mods made for Skyrim.

    I hope I could help in any small way possible. I wish you luck in deciding what course to take and hope you have a magical fantastical jaunt through Skyrim or Cyrodiil.

      Thanks! That's a good idea. I actually haven't completely played Morrowind either! Maybe I'll jump into that too. I think I'm going to wait a month on Skyrim and see how things are going. I would say I haven't covered a good 30% of the map despite 450 hours in original Skyrim and 150 in SE (I move slowly and replay sections a lot if I use too many potions, choose a wrong dialogue, etc.), and I still haven't played Dragonborn, so I want to make sure I get the best experience possible. Lately, I've been going back and forth between LE and SE, playing around with their mod lists, and taking comparison shots rather than, you know, having fun.

      Thanks for the well wishes! Have fun in Morrowind!
