First of all what is this?Well it's kind of difficult to explain but I'll try.
This is plethora of mods,fixes,tweaks for Skyrim
I've been working on this for about 1 year and invested a few thousand hours into.
There has been a lot of reading,trial and error and A LOT of modding tools used(about 20)
The reason for doing this is while i found Skyrim to be beautiful i also find it lacking in some places.
◘Is it a mod pack? -Yes and no!
◘ Does it contain custom fixes ? -Yes lots!
◘ Does it contain .ini tweaks ? -Yes plenty!
◘ Does it come with optimization? - Yes plenty! (60 FPS on a medium build pc)
◘ Does it contain texture replacements ? Yes about 200 hand picked mods are used
◘ Does it contain merged mods? - Yes A LOT of them!
◘ Does it contain better AI,Variation,New Landmasses,New quests,New Npc,More content? - Yes about 3x then vanilla skyrim!
(Except for quests which are added in high amounts but not as much as all the side quests that skyrim vanilla has)
◘ Does it have more weapons,armors,jewelry ? - Yes about 3-5x more then vanilla
◘Can this be considered an overhaul? - Yes...and then some
-In this part i'll be covering all features of 2.0.6.

-This will be aimed at adult audiences and i recommend that you are 21 or more to play this!

There are a lot more features that escape me right now but I'll let you guys find them!
Ok so the modded game will have 10 or more new landmasses that expand on Skyrim default map and take you to new locations,
but where?Some are not obvious and need some searching,and for your leisure i will list everything here with explanations,
Screenshots,all the goodies this thread will be updated often with new details etc!
-To start Falskaar, go to Riften and speak with Jalamar. He will either be outside around the market, inside the northern gate, or inside the Bee and Barb. You can also just go straight into Echo Deep Mine, a new dungeon just northeast of Riften.
The mod does not have a level requirement. It scaled in a similar manner to Skyrim, ideally providing a balanced experience for players regardless of their level. However, like Skyrim, if you're level 80 you may find bandits to be rather trivial. Mods that alter scaling and banditry/enemies in Skyrim will not affect Falskaar bandits as they are a unique setup.
-The quest begins for players at level 10 and above after you have been summoned by the Greybeards. Theodyn Bienne, a courier for the East Empire Company, will track you down wherever you are in Skyrim (or elsewhere) starting from the Bannered Mare in Whiterun and will deliver to you an important message. The task seems simple enough; slay a dragon that's stirring up trouble. But things are never that simple...
•Lost Colony of Akavir
-STARTS: At docks of Solitude, a trapdoor on one of the boats.
•Shadows of Dragonstar
-Start in the basement, at Vlindrel Hall in Markarth, the player home
Stop an evil Shadow Mage from destroying the world.
Run from Elephants.
This mod is basically a homemade expansion for the North Hammerfell region. The entire story should take about 8 hours to complete. This is a new land and will not affect Skyrim’s worldspace. This mod is loosely based on the old shadowkey travels game. This mod’s worldspace is roughly 1/3 that of Skyrim.
Fight Forest Trolls, Manticores, Elephants, Redguard Bandits, Ghosts, Shadow Mages and more.
Discover two towns, a large city, several dungeons, the shadow realm, and more.
Ride Elephants, Giant Skeevers, Spiders, and Horses.
Only for experienced characters. This mod will get difficult.
-Head towards Markarth, a man will be waiting next to the carriage, talk to him to go to the new location.
There is no voice acting, so enable subtitles please.
•Lurking In The Shadows
-To start the quest simply wait for the courier to give you the letter from Jarl.
Read the letter and you are ready to begin!
