It's kind of fun.

You can always get married, buy more houses, build your Steddings, etc.

It may be time to add some new content. Try the Lost City mod. It's not completely Elder Scrolls, but it is absolutely worth playing. I've had great success using Vortex, which will download, install, and order your mods for you. My Fallout 4 game currently has 67 active mods and everything works just fine.

I think you're right about it being time to add a mod! I did go see the bards and got a quest which put me up to Level 34. It helped that I had to kill two elder dragons on the way!

Does adding a mod make me start over?

So there's a point after the Alduin quest where you're forced to make an either/or decision. I don't want to give too much away if you haven't already come across it yet, but it involves another dragon. My personal feeling about the "quest" is that Bethesda made a mistake by not allowing a third alternative. To remedy that, there is a mod available called "The Paarthurnax Dilemma". So when you hit that particular conflict and like others, aren't happy with the options given, just look up a mod by that name on the Skyrim Nexus. smile

Drac, the experts here can tell you more (much more!), but I found this online about Skyrim mods:

Quote
mods are effective in game the moment you add them, regardless of using an old save or a new game. But, SOME mods (by the nature of what they are) can or should be used from the start of a new game, which are usually ones that modify how levels and/or skills are gained.

The description of the mod in question will tell you if you need to start over.

The Lost City does not require it. I'm not sure about Helgen Reborn, another one I have installed.

Anyway it should be clear from the mod author's notes.

The Paarthurrnax Dilemma is a great mod.

Well, heading into The Forgotten City mod!

EDIT: Well, that was disappointing. Maybe an hour or two of play with no opportunity to level up. More of a mystery. This one got awards, so donated to the developer. It was even advertised as about 8 hours of gameplay.

Well, I've done all the radiant quests, gotten a bunch more words of power, done a bunch more jobs for the Companions. Since that Forgotten City mod was such a bust, do any of you have any other recommendation? I'm a level 37 now.

I don't have any words of wisdom about Skyrim (haven't played it), but I am really surprised that the Forgotten City mod was such a bust. It has overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam and people are saying it takes about 10 hours or less, so your experience seems strange to me.

Maybe I should give it another go. I did everything that was available and went into every location available. Talked to people ad nauseum to solve the mystery. Solved the mystery and boom! Got sent back into normal Skyrim. What I didn't care for was there was no opportunity to level up - just solving a mystery by talking to people.

Well, it is good to hear of your experience. If it was that short, though, you would think people might be complaining about it, so I was curious.

Who knows, maybe something went amiss! I thought getting sent back to Skyrim was pretty abrupt. I'll give it another go.

EDIT: Hmmm... well that's interesting. The mod will no longer load. There certainly must be something amiss. I'm going to try downloading it again. Thanks, Marian!

Well, I've had to throw in the towel with Skyrim. While I was playing that mod - which I tried 3 times and it never got any better - a lovely white "LEVEL UP" appeared on the screen which I could not get rid of. So I tried to ignore and played until I was able to level up to 38, but it still didn't go away. I guess it's fairly common. I MIGHT try some of the fixes I found, first by getting rid of that mod. But I think I'll just play something else for awhile.

Sorry you were having issues with Skyrim and modding Drac. I haven't played either of new editions that have come out, I'm still on the first GOY edition. There are some idiosycrocies to Skyrim after it's been modded. Unfortunately, I've sort of turned into a Skyrim dinasaur when it comes to modding the game since the new versions came out. Also, apologies for originally directing you to Gopher's YouTube channel, I didn't realize he stopped posting on Skyrim mods almost 10 years ago. Time flies...

I'm also playing with an older version of Skyrim -- I suppose mainly because once I've installed it, it stays on my computer. I can't say I've ever had any weird issues with it, myself.

It's too bad you didn't really enjoy it, Draclvr. Skyrim, like Fallout 3 and 4, are the games I play when my brain doesn't want to do any work, so they're like going home, for me.

That reminds me...I have ESO on my computer and I haven't even THOUGHT about it for a year. Last thing I remember was buying a house somewhere. Might be time to get back in there once I'm done with Mass Effect. Legenday.

There are several solutions to this mod's quest, but only one correct one. I failed a few times before I got it correct. Also, there was combat in this mod and a really creepy area with spirits. I wonder if you got one of the endings, but not the "right" one?

I've gotten two ending, neither one of them very satisfying - just got thrown back to the present. In my first play, I got a short bit of combat when some thieves tried to infiltrate, but I didn't get it the 2nd time. The first time I got the opportunity to open the "gate" in the underwater house and swim to the back and engage with a few bad guys and get a treasure. In my 3rd play, I am just SO sick of going from one place to another and talking to people and getting absolutely nowhere. I've even looked at a couple of walkthroughs. I'm just finding it eminently boring.
