You just stack every conceivable smithing buff basically; potions, rings, armour, everything.
Doesn't work - however I am using a UI mod, so that's probably why...

Shameless self-promotion. My first real skyrim mod
Zohar's Class Mod. 14 unique, balanced starting classes for Skyrim: http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5909
Try it out and let me know what you think! If you like it be sure to endorse on Nexus.
ENB series tweaks make all the difference!
I need to get some mods running now..
Any tips on which ones I should go for? Ideally one's to make this game a little better on the graphics.
Im thinking the same. The game runs perfectly for me at the moment, no ctds. But I would love to see some improved graphics, maybe skys?
To be honest I love the graphics in the game.
Some textures should be better, higher res of course, but when I look up to the skies during night, watching those auroras, two moons... I love it
However, heard there are so many cool mods, I could try some.

Oh and not a graphics mod but the mod I made http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5909
I did the main storyline and the civil war quests then never got back into it sadly.
Smithing 33, I've been making Elven stuff. Need to find some Quicksilver ore veins and complete the set!
I am getting a glitch in the game with distant terrain, I have uploaded a video of the problem:
In this video the settings are the highest they can be but it also happens at lower res.
I have no mods running, does anyone have an idea why this happens?
What am i looking at here? if you mean the slight popin i think there are some settings in skyrimprefs.ini in you're user folder you can increase to decrease the effect.
Ah here we go:
The variables above in SkyrimPrefs.ini control the level of detail of distant terrain, and correspond in part to the Distant Object Detail in-game setting. The maximum values possible in-game are shown above, however you can raise them even further if you wish. As the three fBlock variables are raised, this will provide subtle improvements in the details on very distant terrain, such as mountain tops.
Have alook at the rest of his guide if you want to tweak the graphics more
Well I have found a fix of sorts.
It is a problem with the game called 'z fighting' with lod textures.
Having tried some different tweaks in the ini and settings, quite happy with the results.
I've dropped the AA to 2x and AF is 16x in the NV inspector.
I've increased the shadow resolution and sharpness in the ini (which looks fantastic compared to the old setting)
I've dropped 'distant object detail' to medium but upped the uGridtoload from 5 to 7 which has helped with pop up.
I've taken a hit to frames but still not dropping below 35 and averaging around 50.
Thanks for the advice.
note, ambient occlusion at quality or high quality (in nvidia inspector) looks fantastic but with my GPU set up I can't run it @ 2560 (or even 1920!)
SLI 580s might be able to handle it and is worth it for sure.
Anyone know where I can get more powerful spells? I so far have Fire and lightning on 70pts of damage each, with Frost on 50. Are there anymore powerful ones, or is that about it?
I'm finding, that as the NPCs level up, my magic is becoming less and less useful. I've starting using staffs and weapons now, to compensate.
I strongly suggest this mod: http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2934
That makes destruction magic scale -much- better as you level and doesn't overpower you.
As for getting new spells, most are found from the same merchants you're used too. The court mages in Solitude and Whiterun are always a good bet. The mages in the College in Winterhold will sell you spells too.
Here's the thing though. The higher tier spells don't show up in their inventory until you level up, and the really good ones come so late in the game that, had you not gotten a balancing mod for destro magic, the spells you get stuck with become super obsolete.
I've started playing again now. I am a level 42 redguard and have destruction at 67 but it's rubbish. I've levelled one-handed and sneak, and with the perks, armour and weapons you can pretty much one shot anything.
Level 20 Nord at 75 in smithing already, but I have a crashing issue constantly. Is it something the patches fix, or is it more like an nVidia driver problem?
Thanks for the Link
The balancing issue appears to have happened to me, unfortunately. I'm level 100 on Destruction, and I'm now finding that even some bandits take at least three-four hits of double Fire/Lightning to kill.
I've managed to compensate up until now with enchanting items, to increase my Magika, but it's becoming more and more difficult to bump people off.
I'll see if the mod helps.
Might not to be too far off really. If your talking about bandit marauders etc, rather than just normal bandits.
I've got 100 one handed, and 80-90 heavy armour, and 80 odd block, and it takes me about 2-3 hits with sword or axe to kill bandit marauders, I can one hit normal bandits though.
