My mind on my modding & modding on my mind (pun intended)

Hello everyone!

My writing hiatus (caused by writing other stuff) is complete and I am now ready to continue my work on VEC/Coverage projects.

As you may have guessed from the title of this magnificent post, yours truly will now talk mods. The creation kit will be out January, but there are still over a thousand mods ready for use, but as for now, I've decided to list the three that I use myself

Deadly Spell Impacts by Isoku

If you are anything like me, then you were probably bummed that spells didn't have a greater effect on the environment. After I stroll into Riverwood and then violently get cast into a battle with a fire- or frost-spewing dragon, then I wanna see some battle impact, beyond the weary bones of a huge, dead reptilian monster.

Only frost-breathing dragons allowed me this pleasure, but alas, it was only to a minimal extent, that would do Chuck Norris shame! And Kirby.

Therefore I am glad that I found Deadly Spell Impacts! Isoku is now one of my favorite people! He takes the weak impact textures from before and dumps them right down the thrash, replacing them with greater and clearer impacts, that will make your magic duel look like a fricken holocaust!

I strongly advice you to try it out. I've been using it for a while now and I still enjoy taking a break to wander around and enjoy the wonderful art left behind by myself in a particular maleficent moment!

Glowing Ore Veins 3000 by Baratan

There isn't much to say to this one.
At first I didn't want it, because I wanted mineral veins to be "not-super-easy-to-spot." Unfortunately I ended up in a position where I couldn't fricken spot them at all, in spit of my eye for detail. Therefore, I download this bad boy!

What it does, is that it makes the ore veins glow with a brighter color, making them easier to spot on the go.

The Ultimate Mod by Tytanis

That name sounds a bit extreme, doesn't it? I mean, it would have to include... Like... Everything!
Well, that it does! Or, at least almost!

The Ultimate Mod is far from done, 'cause Tytanis literally want it to contain all of the awesome stuff and even though it is only at its most basic stage ATM, it adds an incredible amount of content.

New mounts, items, crafting options, perk effects, spells, element-enchanted arrows, weapons, armor, polearm-wielding - YOU NAME IT!

One of my favorite features is that you can make high-level armor, like daedric, look like low-level armor by infusing Fx steel or Iron in the creation process.

This is by far my favorite mod and it'll continue to grow beyond our wildest beliefs, I'm sure!

I definitely recommend - nay - order that you download and apply this mod immediately! Or adorable polar-bear cubs will be hurt! Just kidding^^   .... (Or am I?)
