Our Skyrim Remaster based with minor modifications on the popular RealVision ENB mod collection of SkyrimTuner. We show how this works and what it looks like in the end.


For our Do-It-Yourself Remaster we need a clean vanilla Skyrim, so a Skyrim without mods. Our instructions assumes that Steam version of the Legendary Edition ahead, so consider all DLCs - but we also show how to do it without Legendary Edition.

The Mod Collection can be used on older or weaker systems but, as for many Mods Lite and performance versions are available that require less power. Minimum requirement is a GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870th

We recommend the mod files manually download and in a shared folder save. The downloads are always under "download on the side of the respective Mod (Manual)" or "find files".

The installation of the mods always follows the same principle: Having downloaded the mod, we open it in NMM as we click in the left navigation bar, click the green plus sign. We navigate to the folder where we have stored our mods and load the mod by clicking on "Open". It takes a moment depending on the size of the mod, until it appears in the list in NMM.

Now we have to activate the mod. We select the mod in the list, and then click on the green tick. After a short loading time a message is that the mod has been successfully activated. In the list next to the Mod name a green check appears now. So we now install one after all the mods from the list.

During the installation, several messages appear. If NMM ask whether all files to be overwritten, we always confirm with "Yes, all" / "Yes to all" exceptions we have explicitly included in the list! Also appear during installation to some mods selection dialogs, which are dealt with in the list.
