Hello! Long time no see, Steppers :)

 

Just wanted to say I have tried Skyrim VR tonight and it's absolutely mindblowing. I think it's more mindblowing that Elite Dangerous - the game I have abandoned Skyrim for.

 

I will be modding SVR, so you'll probably going to see more of me on these forums again :)

 

Any other SVR users?

I do play Skyrim but I haven't tried it on VR. 

We are glad to have you back.

If you get a chance - check it out. I have currently about 160 audio-visual mods installed and the experience is just jawdropping. Been standing around in Riverwood for 20 minutes yesterday just looking around, observing the life in the village. I can't applaud it enough!

 

Gameplay mods next... Then some VR specific mods and a full playthrough :)

Right, the initial mod build for VR is done. I used mainly Tech's Guide (Thanks dude! Stellar work with the guide!) with a couple of extra mods of my choice. There is only 1 VR specific mod (see below), but I will be testing more when I am some time into the playthrough, just to get a feel for the VR gameplay. 

 

The testing was promising, I didn't notice any issues. Going to start an actual playthrough now and see what happens :D

OMG! This is absolutely mindblowing! I went to Bleak Falls Barrow yesterday and got scared to death in the darkness (no torch!) by the Skeevers on those round stairs that take you to the lower level, shortly before the big spider fight :D

 

They are MASSIVE in VR and very scary. I had to save just before the spider fight, as it was 5 AM, but OMG I am very scared to get back in, as I can only imagine what that fight will be like :D

 

Stellar job Bethesda, really really good!

After a long absence from Skyrim Modding (Ever since Neovalen stop with SRLE) I am back after seeing Gophers video for Skyrim VR. I am using the Oculus Rift, but so far am just trying to set it up.  I hope to join you again shortly.  Probably forgot a lot about modding, so I am sure there will be some growing pains.

I take it you don't suffer from motion sickness. That's the one of the big setbacks I think for me, all the reports of users becoming nauseous when using these sorts of systems.

I showcased VR to a lot of friends and it really differs from person to person and from game to game. Also, you develop immunity after a while. 

 

I can now spend hours in VR without any problems, unless the game is badly optimised. My wife however, who is HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) can only do about 30-40 mins at most and she needs a break.

SkyrimVR rocks. I quit playing Skyrim months ago in anticipation of VR. The Samsung Odyssey and 173 mods transports me to Tamriel. I used the SEPTIM load order as a base and added many of my favorites as well. The fact that we now have SKSEVR says a lot about future development on the mod front. We definitely need SkyUI

Well There should be some kind of master list of all mods that are essentials for skyrim vr.

I am using those:

https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/16692

https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/16678

The rest from VR category didn't seem appealing or must-have.
