My first run through I overwrote every file when installing a mod. However the graphics don't look at all realistic. Did I do something wrong???

That information is too vague. My game looks great! You'll have to provide some screenshots, as Torminater pointed out. Use FRAPS to do this.

Here are a few screenshots. I'll take more tomorrow, if needed.

Have you done everything as it is said in the guide? What ini-tweaks have you made, what nvidia inspector settings do you use, what exactly is your problem with the depicted sceneries? I'm not sure whether your install is correct, but correct me if I'm wrong: Skyrim is no way realistic. If you want realism, go take a look outside. Can't get more realistic than that. Games are made, so as many people as possible can enjoy them, which requires them to be manageable by systems across platforms which are affordable by a big proportion of the population (at least in western hemisphere). Therefore it will most likely be impossible to create games that are close to realistic. If you didn't know: All the textures from Skyrim are painted on computer, they are not photos. Although Skyrim doesn't have a very distinct unrealistic art style like e.g. dishonored, and aims at being somewhat photorealistic, it will never be possible to tweak all the textures in game so you won't notice any texture seams or unrealistic transitions between rocks and sand/snow/green spots.

I have to be honest the screen shots you have look like bad shots compared to the ones that you have found that others have posted. In a way when your taking a shot its like photography, the scene that you have presented doesn't look as good as the ones the last post. There is very little contrast of colors in your images perhaps try and taking some shots with the sky involved and some trees and you will probably see the real beauty of the image

I don't know who told you that, but those screens show a wild selection of mods and ENB configs that have nothing to do with STEP. That can be achieved, but I couldn't possibly guess at the exact setup. You'd need to ask whoever provided those images to share their exact config. But your original complaint was that things don't look "realistic", and those screenies certainly don't provide that - the second lady looks like a Thunderbird! You should also bear in mind that many people use crazy setups and tricks for taking artistic screenshots, that wouldn't work well in-game.

The creator of those images already stated that he will not release any sort of guide or a list of the mods he used. He did state that the game was still playable with his setup.

I just looked at his page.  He lists most of his setup, which includes loads of stuff outside STEP, and he says which ENB he is using.  For some reason he won't reveal his secret personal presets.  So, I don't really see how we can help you.  I'd recommend you play around with the ENB setups on the Nexus until you find something very close.

I love it when we run across these images from new comers. I know where these came from and the author clearly states that the game is not playable in some of those shots and that you WILL NOT be able to get the same results as him; at least not until he decides to release a guide. As far as STEP and GEMS, he only recommends them. He in no way says that you'll get the same results using STEP.

Now if you want to be put on the right path, he includes a small list of mods on his page (linked aboved), but again, states that you will not get the same results. For example, the grass he's using is a custom grass he made himself and hasn't released. He's on a highly overclocked system with maxed out Ultra settings and is only getting between 5-30 FPS at times (5-20 FPS is not playable; 20-30 might be playable depending on the VRAM). He is also using a customized ENB setting but say you can use Opethfeld6 ENB. Here's just a few of the author's quotes:

1.1.6 Which grass mod are you using?
Is just a custom grass mod im doing and is a WIP mod so there's no download link and i don't know when will be available. Please don't ask when i will finish it.

1.1.9 What's the framerate with all this mods?
With the heaviest grass with AO and at DEEPEST forests i get from 5 to 30fps (more grass on screen = less fps), without it or at other locations at least 40-60fps (outdoors).

1.1.12 When will the ENB preset be available?
I don't know, im only doing it for myself so i'm in no hurry. Please don't ask when i will finish it.

 *Be aware that with only these mods you won't get the same aspect as my screenshots !

Im using a 2500K @ 4Ghz + GTX670 @ 1200mhz, enough for the unmodded game but i can get unplayable framerates with the grass mod.


So, you see...unless you figure out how he did it yourself, there's no way to match his screenshots and some of the things he uses aren't even available to you. What you're seeing in the STEP install is as good as it's going to get using only STEP.

Where did you read that? :><:

As i said:

1.1.17 I can't get the same aspect as your screenshots/videos, why?
Because you need ALL the mods i used for each screenshot/video scene and of course, the SAME ENB preset.


I recommend STEP because has lots of recommended mods for beginners, that's all.
I didn't say i only used the mods from that guide, i wrote a small list with more mods but as i also said, i have around 1000 mods and i change/mix the mods for almost each screenshot so you can't get the same aspect as ALL my screenshot with only ONE MIX OF MODS.

So read STEP, try some mods from my list and make your own mix.


PD: i've just registered because i saw many visits from this thread to my blog :P

Welcome Unreal. Some of those screenshots are certainly interesting. If you get your mods/presets to a state you're happy with and release them, do let us know.

Hey Unreal! Nice to see you! We get this issue pop up from time to time, but this is the first one that has said "STEP can do this". :teehee:
