Some useful Skyrim mods include SkyUI mod, build your own home, the ENB series, interesting NPCs and the ultimate follower overhaul, according to PC magazine. SkyUI changes the user interface for Skyrim to help make menu navigation easier to use with a keyboard and mouse while also providing more information about items with simple icons.
The ENB series of mods enhance the graphics of Skyrim like improving post processing and lighting effects. The build your own home mod allows players to create and customize their own houses from shacks to fortresses. Other mods like the ultimate follower overhaul modifies the companion system so players can have companions level up with them and have up to 15 followers, notes PC magazine. The interesting NPCs mods add more depth to NPCs in Skyrim with more dialogue and quests.
