I just recently heard of a good one for PC: If you have a good microphone and you get this mod, you can actually say the words of a shout and it'll work. No accessing a menu or anything! I'm not sure of the specifics and I haven't personally seen it, but once I have time I'm boud to get it.

How about the rest of you?

That sounds really cool!  I don't use mods a lot myself other than for some light atmospheric things - denser trees, heavier rain and thunder, bird flocks, that sort of thing.  I've tried installing an ENB but can't get it to work for the life of me.

I'm not entirely sure what it stands for, but it's a post-processing graphics mod, which means it does stuff to the frame after it renders like increase saturation, increase contrast, etc.  If you Google "Skyrim ENB" you'll get a ton of results.

I used once and use now quite many mods and also like trying and testing new. Most of my mods connected with gameplay and addition of some new stuff (armor, weapons, locations, quests). Among my favourites are these: Ultimate Followers Overhaul and Convenient Horses. The first adds new options and eases interaction with followers, the second does the same quoad horses. Also Deadly Dragons is good - it adds new dragon species and new loot from them. Another gameplay mod is The Dance of Death - it adds a menu to tune killmoves, camera position in the time of killmove, ect. If to speak about armor, I prefer Immersive Armors compilation by hothtrooper44 as maybe the most authentic and at the same time various and nice-looking. But of course there are lots of other great mods, so to find anything most appropriate for each gamer is a piece of cake

How about a mod that replaces all of the English dialogue with Dovahzul and vice versa, made by the folks here at Thuum.org?

 

Nah, that's crazy.

Dialogue, yes!  It might be cool to mod item and spell names into Dovahzul though.  I imagine you might be able to learn the names of things pretty quickly then.

Assuming that we actually do that kind of thing, we need to actually have words for everything in Skyrim first, sans some proper nouns. e.g. Hjaalmarch, Ralof, etc.

And making everything written in the Dragon alphabet could be difficult. Not to mention how weird shouts would sound in English. (Force, Balance PUSH!)

For ease of use I would say to keep it written in the Roman alphabet.  I think we have words for almost every basic item found in the game (sword, dagger, bow, etc.).  With the Shouts you can still say "Unrelenting Force", "Fire Breath", or as close a translation as you can get.  "Sindugahvon Fus", "Yolsu'um", etc.

In which case, we could add a book that acts as a guide to the alphabet, seeing as TESV already has a font for it as shown in Dragon Language: Myth No More.

In other words, we could theoretically already do this?

I think you misunderstand me on this point, friend. I was suggesting that we dub over the entirety of the dialogue from the game, including the Dragonborn's. Therefore, I was thinking we would have to dub the Shouts in English (or French or Russian or what-have-you, though I only speak English well enough to actually be of any help there) since we would be reversing all the speech elsewhere. Or Elsweyr, if you prefer.

A book could be handy.  It depends if you think teaching words or teaching the alphabet is more important.  Writing everything in the Dragon alphabet would teach both the words and the alphabet but might turn people away who will find that too difficult.  The best option might be to have a setting where you can switch the font, but I'm not a modder so I'm not sure if that could be done.

I think we understand each other with the dialogue part.  My reaction is to suggest a mod where only the menu items are in Dovahzul, because the task of rerecording every single piece of dialogue would be quite overwhelming!

i personaly believe that mods are for people who cant play the game for what it is and think they can make it better but usually make it worse

I strongly dislike most mods, but there are plenty of great ones: SkyUI for one, ENB mods for another (as long as you don't turn the saturation up to 11 :P).  It seems a bit unfair to say people shouldn't use mods if you don't like them, though.

My favorite mod changes "Gold" into "Septim". Nothing more, nothing less.
