So, I finally gave in and bought Skyrim VR and I'm impressed how well it's done.
Originally I played as rogue/archer type, this time I decided to go full melee and got disappointed.  😕
Shield and sword are so bad that it's almost unplayable for me. Well, that leaves me only one choice, become a mage... or just go back to my old trusty bow and arrow...

Yeah I feel the same way about the combat. But I love playing an archer/mage

@RedRizla, as asked elsewhere, here is my modlist. Be aware that a good portion of the mods have options inside their installers which you need to be aware of when installing. Always try to read the description area of the mods 'Nexus' page for important info, plus read the 'Posts' area also for important info from users + creators. Modding can take a while but is well worth it. As in everything, the amount of time put into modding/testing will reward you with the same back in quality gameplay + visuals. Patience is always a factor. If you are only looking for modding visuals then you'll need to check each one at the Nexus website as you preview them. Many, many of these mods are new locations, dungeons, etc... so you many not be interested in them as of yet, but they are extremely fun if you do.

Make sure your system can handle the amount of mods listed if you choose to do so. If not, you may experience different levels of lag, low fps, freezes, etc... One more thing, for visuals, make sure you have enough video card ram if running 4k or 2k textures.

Oh yes, one last thing...make sure to download and use OpenComposite when running SkyrimVR. It will provide at least 20% better performance than SteamVR when running SkyrimVR modded. Grab the launcher though as you can then switch between running OpenComposite or SteamVR as needed.

selfishly bumping as its easier to find when I am adding spyders mods 🙂

Has anybody had this? I see it in the game under my feet ever since I completed the Dawnstar nightmares quest with Erandur (I think it is). Haven't seen it before and now it wont go away. It seems to randomly grow and shrink as I walk along. Doesn't interfere with gameplay but it's a little distracting. It looks a little like a sideways helmet made of ice. I call it the Phantom Ice Helmet. Haven't installed any new mods lately. In fact, I had to disable the Dawnstar Overhaul mod which makes Dawnstar more like a proper city because Erandur couldn't figure out how to get out of the modded town so he could lead me to Nightcaller Temple!


I thought this issue might be VR specific, so that's the reason I am asking here. Another issue I had been having all along is what I call the Phantom Skybeams. It's beams of light that project skyward from areas you've been to on the landscape and can be seen from miles around. You can actually walk up to them, and they are very blinding. It turns out that issue IS VR specific. I found out on the Reddit forums that it is actually the map markers that appear on the landscape, but happens only in the VR version.



Level 5
I haven't seen either of those issues but its been a while as I had to rebuild my PC. Do you have any mods that update the maps?
