Does not follow exactly STEP's phylosophy, since it changes gameplay, but seems balanced
(IMO :P ) .


It changes many little things that weren't addressed by other mods (standing stones, racial abilities ..) in addition to tree perks and more. I haven't played much the game 'cause i startedd modding, so i cannot fully test, but from what i tried it does what it says .

So, what do you think?

PS: i hope this is the right section and sorry if i made grammar mistakes, i'm not a native speaker.

This actually looks really nice, although I have a feeling it would be incompatible with Ars Metallica.

I think it does follow the STEP philosophy, because -as what i can read- it tries to balance gameplay not just add new stuff. The problem is: 1) does it really archive balance? 2) does it have bugs, and how many? if answer to q1 is YES, and answer to q2 is No or "acceptable", then it is a worth addition for STEP. Lets figure out!

Wow very ambitious project, the philosophy seems pretty respectable and the modular design is mandatory for our purposes, worth a look.

I started a new game with this mod and skyTest together and it is amazing. My mod setup was basically Step 2.1.1 + updates and this was the highest priority. You don't even need Deadly dragons as they are a pain in the butt. So far I've just played necromancy, with a side of light armor and light weapons. Each tree has what feels like its own spec. For example with light weaponry, you have the option to dual wield, 1hand wield (with a spell or torch offhand) or use a sword and shield. The conjuration tree lets you focus on summons, lets you collect and create skeletons, or raise the dead. I've had no CTD's so far. I'll update if that changes. Also for some reason I get mammoths that soar into the sky and meteor into the ground, killing themselves. It happens pretty frequently. After a few more days I'll check out the vampirism tree and mesh that with other things. Maybe I'll try to do a full review. I want to be more active in helping with STEP.

Make sure to check out his page frequently, because he's planning to release an update shortly

Maybe I'll try to do a full review. I want to be more active in helping with STEP.

That would be awesome! :woot:

Wow very ambitious project, the philosophy seems pretty respectable and the modular design is mandatory for our purposes, worth a look.

What do you mean by modular? Because i think it's the main problem right now. It's one big gameplay mod. Wich is both the strength and the weakeness of the mod since, as the aothor wrote

"By modding everything, I make sure stuff plays well together, and has a lot less bugs than one might expect. And needless to say, a single mod won't cause compatibility conflicts, while a lot of small mods do."

The downside is obiviously that you get everithing or nothing. He made indipendent mods for the standing stone and the racil abilities, wich is a start. :) .
Overall, still think it's worth it :thumbsup:

Wow, just went through the list of changes this mod makes, and while impressive, I cringe at the thought of conflicts that this mod might create. It should work perfectly with a STEP setup, but for those of use who like a few additional content mods, this one is going to be tricky. This one will need to be tested super thoroughly, and I dont envy anybody who wants to review this mod in detail. And without a detailed review, especially in regards to compatibility, I wont be touching it :P

I've been running it for a couple days now. Havent had any issues at all. I did disable Ars Metallica, on the off chance that the added smithing recipes might mess things up. Also burnified effects. Other than that, running the full STEP setup, and a few extra mods to boot. Absolutely no problems. And I love this redesign for sure.

This is really tempting. Too bad I heard about this after I finished setting up my loadorder for the playthru, but think I might actually change to this instead... Lots of mods I currently use will be unnecessar/uncompatible though it seems such as the ACE mods (awesome perk changes), Duel - Combat Realism, Enhanced High Level Gameplay, Deadly Dragons, Minor Magic Overhaul etc etc. Might be worth it though, and re-installing everything if I prefer the old setup isn't exactly hard. :)

I think it's worth mentioning that SkyRe has improved quite a bit (v0.99.12.1) and it's now modular:

SkyRe_Main: Changes to perks, spells, leveled lists, the Wot3E-weapons, adjusted/added smithing recipes, adjusted vanilla weapons and armor, bugfixes, adjusted shouts (for speechcraft), timed blocking, game settings related to sneak and cell/vendor respawn. No Vampirism/Fingersmith trees.
SkyRe_Races: Racial abilities and race related loading screens

SkyRe_Combat: Stamina dependent slowdown/damage/blocking efficiency, huge damage boost for both enemy and player, armor-dependent sneak and pickpocket modifications, debuff and stagger upon unblocked hits, stamina consumption upon blocking 

SkyRe_Enemies: Changes to enemy AI, enemy scaling, general minimum levels for most encounter zones, additional perks for enemies

SkyRe_StandingStones: Standing Stones, and related loading screens

SkyRe_Lighting: Lighting tweaks

SkyRe_Vampirism: Vampirism and Fingersmith tree, UI tweak to remove skill bar when lockpicking.

And a compatibility list is available on the page.

Also, a bit of self-advertising: i created a pdf documentation for SkyRe, available in the download section of SkyRe itself.

If you have any suggestion, please let me now.

Excuse my necromancy, but I figured I may as well considering the other thread... SkyRe has come a long way in the last 5 months. Very well balanced. And very brutal when combined with ASIS. :D If we were to include it in STEP however, it should be noted that it's now incompatible with Arthmoor's Ars Metallica, unless someone makes a compatibility patch. In specific, you can't make lockpicks from Ars Metallica due to Lockpicking and Pickpocket being merged into one (Fingersmith). Making lockpicks in Ars Metallica requires a perk point in the Novice (for iron (5 picks)) and Apprentice (for steel (10 picks)) perks for the Lockpicking tree. As well, it covers areas that Ars Metallica covered andthensome. So, IMO, we'd pretty much just have to replace Ars Metallica in lieu of SkyRe.

Merging Lockpicking and Pickpocketing seems like a weird thing to do if you ask me... I'm not a fun of overhauls. It's hard to keep track of the changes, and they defy the purpose behind STEP, which is to pick the best lore-friendly, polished and stable mods out there and merge them into a single entity. Including SkyRe in STEP would make the whole project dependent on that one mod, killing STEP team's work in the process. Whilst Skyrim Redone uses some nice ideas and modules, it is hardly a definite winner between all the overhauls and conflicts with too many mods to be a viable tool for us.

Agreed. There are several other incompatibilities. We'd have to devote a whole section of the wiki detailing which compatibility patches people would need for what. And yeah, merging Lockpicking and Pickpocketing is a little weird in the sense that they're ES staples. Why they did it and what they did with it definitely makes the change worthwhile, IMO. Lockpicking in Skyrim is so boring. With the merge, it kinda piggybacks off of Pickpocketing's perks a little, on top of the extra changes made. That said, we would pretty much have to suggest mods around SkyRe and that's just not a worthwhile endeavor, considering how much SkyRe changes/modifies.

Actually, Pickpocketing isn't really a "staple" skill. Unless I'm mistaken it's only been in two games (the other being Daggerfall). Pickpocketing is usually handled by the Sneak skill. I would like to know more about this Wayfarer skill, though. Although, to be fair, I'd like to know more about the whole mod. I've looked at it a few times, but I'm just not sure if it's what I'm looking for. If not included in STEP, I'd still like to see some articles/reviews on it.
