There are so many Skyrim VR mods that it can be difficult to choose the best ones to install. We have compiled a selection of the best Skyrim VR mods that you should consider prioritising to get up and running as quickly as possible.
I have personally tested and used these mods myself, so can vouch that they work. Your mileage may vary depending on your personal set-up, but I have had a flawless experience and these mods they have significantly enhanced the immersion for me.
To install these mods you will need a mod manager. I personally use Vortex as my chosen mod manager but have also heard good things about Mod Organizer 2 – it is up to you which one you decide to use to install these Skyrim VR mods.
If there are any mods that you think should be added to this list, please leave a comment below. Thanks!
First things first…
Supersampling in Skyrim VR
Okay, so this isn’t what some people would consider modding, but playing with the supersampling settings will make your eyes very happy – before you’ve even installed any big Skyrim VR mods.
To start, go into the game’s settings and make the following changes:
- Disable Dynamic Resolution
- Disable Foliage Shadows
- Disable Comfort Mode
- Supersampling slider – slide it all the way to the left
- Untick Disable LOD options
- Set Tree LOD slider to maximum
- Distance Sliders:
- Item: 25%
- Actor 25%
- Objects 35%
- Grass 100%
Depending on your preference, you could also activate Realistic Archery, Physical Sneak and Realistic Swimming – these will all help with the immersion.
Next, you’ll need to set supersampling via the Oculus Tray Tool or Steam (VIVE and Windows Mixed Reality users).
For those using the Steam settings, go to Steam VR settings, click the Developers tab and click Manual Override. Choose whichever level you’d like – I’ve had a great experience at 200% but you could look to lower this if your performance suffers.
Enable Skyrim VR Mods
Before we start installing mods, we need to make a tweak to a .ini file. Go to where your game is installed (usually your Documents/MyGames/SkyrimVR file) and open “SkyrimPrefs.ini”.
Add the following lines to the .ini file:
Save and close.
Now we’re ready to begin installing Skyrim VR mods! Let’s get started with all of our recommended mods…
