Monster Mod is a creation of Dogtown1, reloaded on the Nexus and edited/maintained by Ironman5000

Here is an excellent overview by Brodual



This mod adds hundreds of new creatures to skyrim along with many new weapons that can be found in the hands of a few creatures, fully integrated into the levelled lists meaning they will spawn throughout the entire game.
This mod was created to build a lot more diversity and to bring a greater challenge the game, and will continue to do so even for player at the highest levels as. The creatures are leveled to the player, so be patient, some of the big bad guys you will not see till later levels
The weapons are not added to vendor lists or crafting lists to make the mod more compatible with other weapon mods, although they can be tempered at a grinding wheel and enchanted.

Despite these cuts there is still a huge amount of monsters to encounter, and most of these guys were only added in later versions of momod.

If you decide to go for a immersive experience then choose the Immersive Monster Mod file, which removes creatures that use assets that you might recognise from other games and the few dinosaurs.

Removed for Immersion
Giant Boar
Death Golem
Alpha Drake
Rot Fiend
The werewolf from Witcher 2

Place the esm and bsa files into your data folder. Everything will begin to appear from a new game, if you are currently in the middle of a game wait indoors for 4 days for spawns to reset.

The same rule applies with updates, when I release a new version install then wait 4 in-game days for the new stuff to appear. THIS WILL NOT AFFECT SAVE GAMES IN ANY WAY SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT CLEAN SAVES.

This mod contains NO scripts, package edits, animations, cell edits of any kind, or dialog changes to reduce the chance of any conflicts with other mods
The mod only edits vanilla creature leveled lists, and lots of them, so when installing this mod, a clean save or start a new game will have the best results
If you use any mod that adds creatures the same way, a bashed patch will allow them function together (see Wrye Bash).

I also highly recommend checking out GrandBulwark's optimization guide - Skyrim Project Stability if you want to ensure you have your system prepared for using large mods like Momod.
