First mods for SKSE64 are now live. But according to the mod users there are still some flaws. So better wait until a proper beta version is released.

I have started a new playthrough, this time as a Relic Hunter.
You start as the guild master of an archeology society.
For this to work you need 3 mods;

Legacy of the Dragonborn

Live Another Life

The relic hunter option is added to LAL, scroll all the way down.
You start in a camp near an Archeological dig site.

The upcoming survival mode of Skyrim SE, has a lot in common with mods like iNeed and Frostfall. Probably better integrated within the game and with perks only devs can give.
To get an idea of what you will get yourself into with the survival expansion, you can try these;

I currently only use Campfire, that is part of Frostfall, but without the added needs.

So, there are already options to make your Skyrim life a lot harder. And for free.
Is a paid survival mode something you would consider?
I will most likely grab it, especially as it also ads new gameplay and fixes.

With SKSE64 and SkyUI released for SSE, more of the good stuff gets converted to the SE now.

I will uninstall Oldrim soon.

I saw another mod that might be interesting. It will make Dragon fights more realistic and scary. Not just the difficulty, but the way they attack with tail, wings and bites.
I will give this a shot and see what it is like.

I think i got the survival mode for free. The Creation Club is a paid mod service. Opinions about it vary. Most common heard is why after 9 years. But than again the game is new for the consoles and that is their biggest market.

Paying 400 credits for a weapon mod makes me laugh. I have so many weapons for free already and most are very cool.
And that makes me wonder how their policy will be towards other mods, hosted by Bethesda. Will free mods be removed in favor of paid ones?

Right now i enjoy my Skyrim life as an explorer. You even get your own Museum in Solitude where you can place all collectables and even get use for some pointless rabble. It also has a safehouse and replicator station. Being guild master of the Archeological society has its perks and is a cool alternate start.
I will completely ignore any civil war or other related mod wars in this playthrough. But i will hone my skills on bandits and draugr. :mrgreen:

The mod community starts to strike back at Bethesda.

I´m currently having a blast being an archeologist. But that Museum has so many features and collectibles, it is almost overwhelming. I do not think i will ever be able to collect them all. But it is also a great way to search for items you may never heard off.

I found a backup link for those, interesting in Wyrmstooth. It can be ported to SE.
Nexus seems to have a tendency to upset certain modders. And make money over the heads of everybody. One reason why i am still reluctant to get their premium version.

There is a new mod that looks really promising as well. A few new quests and locations. And all independent from vanilla Skyrim.
It includes options to put the thieves guild into jail, battle the Thalmor and a few other perks. :lol:
