    I also wish to know if this works with controllers and Skyrim special edition? I have never used mods and have not played skyrim since ps3 days so hopefully its not too overwhelming

      No SE as of yet last time I checked.

      Modding is really overwhelming specially when you first get into it. I haven't followed this mod pack yet so I can't tell you if it's hard or not but I did start with oblivion as my first introduction to modding Bethesda games and I installed a mod pack known as "fcom" which is considered pretty difficult to install, I had to take two tries but it worked pretty good by my second try.

      If you're following a guide and the guide is detailed then chances are you'll be ok. it'll just be confusing at first. take your time and be patient and you'll be alright hopefully. Modded Bethesda is soooo much better than vanilla.

      This is not going to be ported to SE in the foreseeable future as, apart from anything else, there are a lot of mods that haven't been converted yet. As far as being new to modding goes, while a curated mod list is certainly the way to go, I'd suggest that one based on Requiem, like Ultimate Skyrim, might not be the best place to start. It gives a very challenging early-game experience, that can take some getting used to if you have only ever played vanilla before. I'd suggest you consider something like S.T.E.P. as a starting-point to modding and perhaps come back to Ultimate Skyrim when 4.0 is out (early next year I believe is the latest estimate for public release - by which time you might be ready for Requiem). Incidentally, if you prefer SE, S.T.E.P. does have a guide for that as well.

    First off, I quickly went through the mod list to check if it had loot and degradation because I can't live without that mod. it fixes the economy in a way that no other mod does. glad to see it there.
    Anyway, I like to play with a controller, is this set up made with controllers in mind or is there going to be a bunch of new keys I won't be able to use if I'm on a controller?

    Also, any plans to moving on to se?

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    I did everything I could correctly but as soon as I run SKSE it flickers like it tried to start skyrim and then crashed instantly..... Any ideas?

    This might be a stupid question or can I download multiple mods at a time and activate them in order? Or do I have to download them each separately?

      Yes, you can download multiple mods at once. Nexus caps download speeds, so depending on your connection you should be able to download several at once all at the maximum speed. As long as you install and activate in the order indicated in the guide, the order in which mods are downloaded doesn't matter.

    Quick question: I'm getting back into modding (again..) and usually I start of with the STEP guide as a base to build on. Can I still follow step first, then add this guide on top of it? Or will there be a lot of conflicts with different ini settings, patches etc?

      STEP and US should not be installed in all their entirety together. Both guides have their own thing going on in regards to what it to be accomplished through the guides.

      STEP is a base guide that centers a lot around playability and stability. (Not saying that US doesn't do these things, but it does it in a different way.) The basic version is certainly playable on its own, but it also allows a bit of wiggle room to add on to the mod list. The extended version adds quite a bit more, and though it does have a little bit of wiggle room to add mods as well, it is a more completed list in regards to adding and fixing content. STEP is a guide that anyone can use really. It doesn't deter much from the vanilla experience. It is meant to enhance it.

      US is a guide that centers around the Requiem mod. While not every mod exclusively revolves around Requiem, the vast majority does. It is intended to add on and enhance the Requiem experience. There is some wiggle room to add new things, but you really can't go too crazy as you could go too far from the intended experience. US is intended for those who seek to play something that is more challenging. It deters a lot from the vanilla experience, which is why Requiem is an overhaul mod.

      You will have to pick which one you want first. Make sure you read all information available about each guide and then make your decision about which direction you want to go. Like I said, you are free to add mods to both guides, but you have to be careful. You need to understand what you are adding to each guide and decide what direction you want to take each guide if you intend to use them only as a base. You will also need to understand how to check for and fix conflicts between mods yourself. I would say both communities are helpful in helping you figure things out, but there is also a lot of resources already available to help you get started.

      Ladie's answer is far more comprehensive if you want to get tricky with your install.

      My short answer: don't use STEP at all with US. Follow the US guide only.

      Yeah reading it all back now, I think I got too wordy with my answer. Lol! I tried to explain different options, but I don't think it came out quite right. That is what I get for trying to do anything while sick.

      OP if you need me to clarify anything, just let me know. But in general, as I tried to explain but failed miserably and as BB said in one simple statement, they shouldn't be installed together. : )

    I don't know what is meant when given mod instruction to tick " data, set data directory". I can't find anything like that. Please help if it is an important step.

      You are intended to right click the shown folder, and set that folder as the data directory Kathey.

      This happens with mods whose folder structures do not match the typical structure required by mod managers, and the instructions are there to show you which folder you should mark as the "data" folder so the mod manager understands what to do with the mod.

    I was considering using ASIS as well, however, I am not sure about the balance and the correct ini files to run it properly with Requiem and the mods used in this format. Have you considered using it? How would you configure the Asis Ini to cast spells and use potions?

    sorry wasn't sure where to report problems.
    Got everything download and installed it played smoothly for about an hour and then got an infinite loading screen and now it is just luck whether it loads or not.

    Windows 8.1
    i7-4810MQ
    GeForce 870 GTX
    8GB DDR3-1600 RAM

    Wasn't sure if there is any help possible since I can't get it to create any crash logs but I guess it is only going unresponsive and not actually crashing really but thought I'd see if I could maybe get a suggestion.
    I'll probably try a fresh install without all the optionals for now though.

    Edit: I fixed the problem whatever it was. (also just got the default skyrim start as random and it is impossible unless you cheat a bit since in the equipment you are in at the start gets you killed before the head man even gets a shot at you)

      Glad to see you got it to work.

      I have also found the default start to be pretty difficult. It isn't impossible though. That is Requiem for you though I have found the spider part to be the most difficult though. If I ever tried to do the default start, I would just sprint out of the cave when I got to the spider part.
