Hey Rottendub, thank you for composing this. I am having a great time playing. I have two problems though.
1. The main quest does not load. I am not interested in one bit playing the main quest, ever other quest loads fine, but I heard this is a problem with other people as well. I downloaded 4.4. I also followed your directions and installed on a SSD, but redirected the file paths to my steam folder, which mod organizer loaded them fine.
2. Low FPS in towns. I am averaging around 30 fps in heavily loaded towns and cities. Is this normal? I get pretty much 60 fps everywhere else. I also unloaded alot of the 2k/4k texture optional mods that were unnecessary. My specs are as followed:
GTX 1070 8gb
240GB SSD <-game installed here
The game runs mostly great. I am having a lot of fun with this mod. Also, is it normal for 3-4 dragons to attack at once? Once I'm powerful enough, I can take them on easily, but is that a challenge with the mods associated with this pack? The only time I have FPS dips are when there are 20+ NPCs on the screen, but then again, I had this problem on vanilla version.
And do you think when the time comes in a year or so from now, these mods will be ported over to Special Edition? I haven't tried special edition yet but I hear it runs better on 64 bit systems and higher end. I feel like Skyrim's engine is very limited when it comes to performance. Is this something I'm going to have to deal with? I went to config and made grass density lower and what not, it has helped graciously.
Again, thank you Rotten, I never had this much fun playing Skyrim before! I am playing Skyrim with my own preferences and actually roleplaying the game instead of just playing an action adventure game!
