Not that i am looking to do so at the moment, but i am curious. So those who use SkyRe...does any one know which of these mods are either incompatible with SkyRe or are not needed because SkyRe has its own version of it so to speak?

I guess it is a huge question, but i am very curious as to which mods in the list of mods i use right now can be used with SkyRe. ( If any one knows the mods i have installed right now that is. )
Yeah there will always be people who are so * begin sarcasm * brilliant * end sarcasm * that they do not see how stupid they actually are.

The only mods im certain are inclued in skyre are weapons of the third era and sneak tools, im not sure what else as there doesnt seem to be anu sort of list that tells you what is included. There are however various compatability patches for some mode like v2 of immersive armours and morrowloot etc.
Skyre does though have its own leveling system for the ai and for encounters which might conflict with your deleveled skyrim mod.

I think Gork712 is right and your leveling mod would probably conflict although if you load it after the SkyRe modules it will possibly be OK. I use a magic mod even though SkyRe has it's own new spells and overhauls the magic system. BOSS sets the load order which would also probably let you know about the leveling mod.

SkyRe uses Elys Community Uncapper so you can potentially level to 300 if you wanted to and I find I am leveling slower anyway. You don't have to use the compatibility patches for armours and weapons though, other than Weapons of the 3rd Era which is in the main file I think, unless you want them nerfed. Except for Jaysus Swords I don't use them myself .

This is my current mod list which is a lot smaller than yours Fessels. :) A couple of new mods are at the bottom and not BOSSed but they work.

SkyRe can be very restricting and if I started a new character I would leave out the Standing Stones module because except for the ones near Riverwood they have too many drawbacks compared to benefits. I used to go get the Lover's Stone but now it's changed to something I don't like, but can't remember what at the moment. I don't use the Vampirism module either because I have no use for it. Other than that I like SkyRe a lot.

One problem I'm having is finding vendors with enough money to buy high level gear, but I think that's a vanilla problem so I have a ton of stuff stashed in chests I'll never use and I've stopped picking up most things these days. I suppose if I invested in the Speechcraft tree they would have more money, but I'm not wasting perks on that and I have all the houses and plenty of gold and nothing to buy with it.

You might notice that every now and then your armour will level up by itself which is a feature not a bug. It's for realism because the more you run a round wearing it the more you get used to it...like wearing in a new pair of shoes. :)

It contains Sneak Tools? That one causes problems for me in Helgen Caves when using Alternate Start - Live Another Life from Arthmoor. I wanted to try Sneak Tools out but Alternate Start - Live Another Life is more important to me then Sneak tools. So i hope Sneak tools is optional or at least that i can deactivate it in game or in a INI should i decide to go with SkyRe when starting a new character?

So SkyRe has its own unleveled encounters, good.

Thank you for the Standing Stones and Vampirism module tips. ( I currently have no interest in playing a Vampire character at the moment. )

As for not finding a Vendor with enough money...yeah the vanila vendors do not have a lot of gold, so quit a while back i started using Summon Shadow Merchant which solved that problem for me. :)

The part about the armour does indeed sound more realistic to me. Thank you both you and Gork172 for the advice so far. :-)
Yeah there will always be people who are so * begin sarcasm * brilliant * end sarcasm * that they do not see how stupid they actually are.

About the sneak tools...I'm not sure what that's about, but I'm pretty sure SkyRe just has it's own sneaking system rather than another mod added to it. I've never noticed any real difference from vanilla except for the perk changes and I use sneak a fair bit. In fact sneak isn't even mentioned in the FAQ.

What has been added related to sneak are exploding arrows and stuff like that aid sneak characters, but not actual changes to the mechanics, as far as I can see anyway.

EDIT: The FAQ says Live Another Life is compatible without the vampire module so you should be fine. It's at the bottom of the list.

On the mod page under Discussions choose FAQ and then the last page and it tells you what everything does and what's compatible etc in a condensed form instead of reading the miles and miles of text in the description which I just skimmed over myself. Conveniently, I've copied it here for you...lol

SkyRe FAQ
_________
=========

Q: What exactly does each module contain?

A:

SkyRe_Main: Changes to perks, spells, leveled lists, the Wot3E-weapons, adjusted/added smithing recipes, adjusted vanilla weapons and armor, bugfixes, adjusted shouts (for speechcraft), timed blocking, game settings related to sneak and cell/vendor respawn. No Vampirism/Fingersmith trees.

SkyRe_Races: Racial abilities and race related loading screens

SkyRe_Combat: Stamina dependent slowdown/damage/blocking efficiency, huge damage boost for both enemy and player, armor-dependent sneak and pickpocket modifications, debuff and stagger upon unblocked hits, stamina consumption upon blocking

SkyRe_EnemyAI: Changes to enemy combat AI

SkyRe_EnemyScaling: Enemy level scaling, additional perks and spells for enemies, new enemy variants

SkyRe_EncounterZones: Minimum enemy levels for most areas

SkyRe_StandingStones: Standing Stones, and related loading screens

SkyRe_Lighting: Lighting tweaks


=========

Q: Oh noes! My game crashes!

A: Deactivate all compatibility patches you don't have the original mod for.

=========

Q: Do I need the SkyRe_Main.esp for the rest to work?

A: No. The modules are independent.

=========


Q: I think I've found a bug! How do I report it in a most helpful way?

A: Tell me which modules you are running, which other mods you are running that might conflict, and try to give a detailed report. "Bandits are buggy" is not helpful, "Bandits are not aggressive enough and aren't lootable, tested at Embershard Mine" is helpful. Use the bug report thread to help keeping clutter away from the comment topic.

=========

Q: Can you make your mod less modular?

A: Nope. SkyRe used to be one big mod, but the esp became too big, which caused severe issues (CTDs and save file corruption).

=========

Q: Can you make your mod more modular?

A: Nope. This is the limit. If I go any further, the overall quality will suffer. I might change that later though, once SkyRe is close to finished.

=========

Q: I heard I can switch a few parts of the mod off. How do I do that?

A:

You need to use the console to adjust certain global variables. The command is

set x to y

where x is the variable, and y is the value. For y, "1" means ON, everything else means OFF.

Here comes a list of variables:

SkyRe_Combat:

xxxCMStaminaAttackBlock - Stamina influence on attack damage and block efficiency

xxxCMStaminaLoss - Stamina loss while attacking

xxxCMStaminaSpeed - Stamina influence on attack and movement speed, and initial 15% slower attack speed

xxxCMArmor - Armor penalties for sneaking, heavy armor slowdown

=========

Q: What do the compatibility patches do?

A: They adjust tempering requirements and add meltdown recipes, and somethimes also adjust values.

=========

Q: I have a bow added by [insert any mod without compatibility patch]. Is it a shortbow or longbow in SkyRe?

A: All bows default to shortbows.

=========

Q: Can you make a compatibility patch for [any skimpy armor]?

A: No. I only make those patches for stuff I can see myself using.

=========

Q: Can you make a compatibility patch for [any well done, lore friendly armor or weapon mod]?

A: Sure. I usually do these between major updates, so it might take a while.

=========

Q: Will my gaming experience suffer or my game break from using anything without compatibility patch?

A: Nothing will break, just don't use stuff with uber values, and don't temper stuff without the necessary perk.

=========

Q: I have a decent suggestion for a new feature. Shall I PM you?

A: I answer all PMs, but I prefer suggestions to be in the respective thread (SkyRe Brainstorming), so that people can discuss them in public.

=========

Q: I like SkyRe, and I'm good with 3d art/2d art/animations. Would you like help?

A: Sure! PM me asap.

=========

Q: Is SkyRe_Races the same as RaRe?

A: Yes.

=========

Q: Is SkyRe_StandingStones the same as StaRe?

A: Yes.

=========

Q: What is a clean save?

A:

1. Uninstall any mods.
2. Load savegame.
3. Save. Yay, cleaned!
4. Quit game.
5. Reinstall mods.
6. Load savegame.
7. Use console to add anything lost while cleaning.
8. Yay, done!

=========

Q: Oh wow, you seem to know a lot! I want to do something similar to [cool stuff from SkyRe]. Can you help me?

A: Sure. PM me for modding questions. As long as you bring the basics, I gladly share what I know.

=========


Q: Is picking locks supposed to level Fingersmith?

A: It's not. Blame Bethesda.

=========

Q: What about Dawnguard?

A: Once it's out, I'll integrate it with my changes, and expand upon it.

=========


Q: Could you give me a list of mods that SkyRe is compatible with?

A: This is based 99% on user reports.

=========

Q: Oh noes! My game crashes!

A: Deactivate all compatibility patches you don't have the original mod for.

=========

Q: Do I need the SkyRe_Main.esp for the rest to work?

A: No. The modules are independent.

=========


Q: I think I've found a bug! How do I report it in a most helpful way?

A: Tell me which modules you are running, which other mods you are running that might conflict, and try to give a detailed report. "Bandits are buggy" is not helpful, "Bandits are not aggressive enough and aren't lootable, tested at Embershard Mine" is helpful. Use the bug report thread to help keeping clutter away from the comment topic.

=========

Q: Can you make your mod less modular?

A: Nope. SkyRe used to be one big mod, but the esp became too big, which caused severe issues (CTDs and save file corruption).

=========

Q: Can you make your mod more modular?

A: Nope. This is the limit. If I go any further, the overall quality will suffer. I might change that later though, once SkyRe is close to finished.

=========

Q: I heard I can switch a few parts of the mod off. How do I do that?

A:

You need to use the console to adjust certain global variables. The command is

set x to y

where x is the variable, and y is the value. For y, "1" means ON, everything else means OFF.

Here comes a list of variables:

SkyRe_Combat:

xxxCMStaminaAttackBlock - Stamina influence on attack damage and block efficiency

xxxCMStaminaLoss - Stamina loss while attacking

xxxCMStaminaSpeed - Stamina influence on attack and movement speed, and initial 15% slower attack speed

xxxCMArmor - Armor penalties for sneaking, heavy armor slowdown

=========

Q: What do the compatibility patches do?

A: They adjust tempering requirements and add meltdown recipes, and somethimes also adjust values.

=========

Q: I have a bow added by [insert any mod without compatibility patch]. Is it a shortbow or longbow in SkyRe?

A: All bows default to shortbows.

=========

Q: Can you make a compatibility patch for [any skimpy armor]?

A: No. I only make those patches for stuff I can see myself using.

=========

Q: Can you make a compatibility patch for [any well done, lore friendly armor or weapon mod]?

A: Sure. I usually do these between major updates, so it might take a while.

=========

Q: Will my gaming experience suffer or my game break from using anything without compatibility patch?

A: Nothing will break, just don't use stuff with uber values, and don't temper stuff without the necessary perk.

=========

Q: I have a decent suggestion for a new feature. Shall I PM you?

A: I answer all PMs, but I prefer suggestions to be in the respective thread (SkyRe Brainstorming), so that people can discuss them in public.

=========

Q: I like SkyRe, and I'm good with 3d art/2d art/animations. Would you like help?

A: Sure! PM me asap.

=========

Q: Is SkyRe_Races the same as RaRe?

A: Yes.

=========

Q: Is SkyRe_StandingStones the same as StaRe?

A: Yes.

=========

Q: What is a clean save?

A:

1. Uninstall any mods.
2. Load savegame.
3. Save. Yay, cleaned!
4. Quit game.
5. Reinstall mods.
6. Load savegame.
7. Use console to add anything lost while cleaning.
8. Yay, done!

=========

Q: Oh wow, you seem to know a lot! I want to do something similar to [cool stuff from SkyRe]. Can you help me?

A: Sure. PM me for modding questions. As long as you bring the basics, I gladly share what I know.

=========


Q: Is picking locks supposed to level Fingersmith?

A: It's not. Blame Bethesda.

=========

Q: What about Dawnguard?

A: Once it's out, I'll integrate it with my changes, and expand upon it.

=========

Yes, well now that I've had some sleep and read that FAQ again :roll: there are changes to sneak, but not things that would interfere with Live Another Life. I sneak around in heavy armour without too much trouble even though it says changes have been made to how armour affects it. My skill is pretty high though and I really only sneak in dungeons to get in a first shot with my bow before all hell breaks loose. Now that I think about it it's probably how I got caught out with the Thalmor Emabassy and Thieves Guild missions, but since you can do them as a sneaky character or not, it doesn't really matter much.
Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it sayingEnd Of The World Switch PLEASE DO NOT TOUCHthe paint wouldn't even have time to dry. Terry Pratchett
