    Just showing Skyrim VR some deserved love

    Hi, been hooked on playing Skyrim VR for some time now and decided to try to share a bit of that experience with anyone who's curious about what it's like playing Skyrim in VR, and I figured, what better way of doing so than posting a video on youtube
    Yapp very original idea I know./s Sigh!

    I play elderscrolls games like I would a Thief game as far as possible and in VR I've been having such a blast

    So here is a video of stealth gameplay in VR, in Skyrim VR to be precise, and if you're not interested in watching the beginning of the BleakFallsBarrow mission and how it leads up to you ending up breaking into BleakFalls Temple but only wants to get to the action asap, the action would start at somewhere about 21 minutes into the video.

    There is however no run & gun hack&slash in this playthrough, so the action is mostly just me (barely) outsmarting the bad guys using some thief's tools of the trade. Which in Bethesda games translates into mods.
    Yeah stealth is not something Bethesda does as well as LGS did, sorry Emil P, but with the active modding community fixing everything to everyone's liking the solution is usually just a download away in most cases.

    Skyrim is at it's best when it allowes itself to be treated like a sneak'em up/thinking man's game. Unfortunately there are plenty of encounters in the game where brute force still is the way to go, like all the dragon encounters.

    Well enough chatter, here's the video

    Yes, Skyrim in VR is great, there are so few open world VR opportunities, and Skyrim does it well (I play a little Fallout 4 in VR too).

    I'd be curious to know what stealthy mods you're using for the game though. I know years ago there was a mod that gave you water and moss arrows that was pretty decent.

    Hi Brethren,

    I will shed some light on what I think of as my "stealthy" mods and just share some info on how I play using them

    yes about mods, as you know most of the Skyrim Special Edition mods work well in VR, but I use a mixture of Skyrim mods and Skyrim Special Edition mods to get my stealth character up to speed. Here they are :

    To lessen the risk of accidentaly stealing I use Sure of stealing https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/93682
    To make the most of merchants I use the mod Remove 48 hour Merchant Restock delay https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/49533

    I limit my fast travelling to only places carriages takes me so in order to fast travel to little places outside of the main carriage stops, I use the mod Wait Carriage In Inns https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/83044
    And to have noicemaker arrows and immolation arrows and blinding arrows I use Shenk Thievery Overhaul https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...tion/mods/7426
    to make valuable loot shine and easier to spot, I use Loot Vision - subtle glow https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...tion/mods/6986
    For a thief armour that look the part, I use the vanilla Skyrim mod True Thief Armor https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/38409
    This has meshes that need to be translated from vanilla Skyrim to the Special Edition, I used the Cathedral Assets Optimiser tool to import the Thief Armour mesh into Skyrim special edition version https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/23316
    For water arrows I used a vanilla Skyrim mod called Water Arrows https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/12555
    Mind you that in order to use a vanilla Skyrim .ESP plugin file in Skyrim Special Edition you have to open the plugin in the special edition Construction Kit (you can find the CK on Steam) and just make some harmless change and just save the plugin and you're good to go, the ESP file will work in Skyrim SE.
    To turn valuable items and other loot into gold without selling them to a merchant I use the vanilla Skyrim mod Gold Conversion Mod, which has a chest that you put stuff into and after a few seconds the chest is filled with gold instead. Very handy if you don't want to carry lot of loot around like a donkey https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/57777/
    I also use Thief Fonts replacement for everything Skyrim SE just to add atmosphere https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/41806
    To have more options in nonlethal takedowns I use the Suffocation Spell mod because it adds a nonlethal spell called ChokeOut which does what the title suggests. I play a thief not a magician so I use a tool called sseedit
    https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/164 to turn useful spells into scrolls which a Thief then might use without having magical powers. The thing with SSEEDIT and Skyrim VR is that you have to change the name of the EXE file from SSEDIT (SSEEdit.exe) into TES5VREdit.exe in order for it to work on the VR version of the game. Further more to change spells into scrolls you need to use the mod Scrollscribe se https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/32439 which contains the scripts that SSEEDIT needs in order to turn all the spelltomes in your enabled mods into scrolls that you can create ingame.
    One mod contains a spell that I don't turn into scrolls however and that is Throw Stone -- Simple Distraction Tool https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/53844 It doesn't require macica to cast and it looks the part. In addition I also use Throw Stone -- Simple Distraction Tool (Enhanced) https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/63448

    I also use Maleficus' Blackjack https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...ion/mods/54546
    The Abduction mod https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...tion/mods/9863 is also quite handy when used in conjunction with My Home Is Your Home https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...tion/mods/7096 where you can abduct and relocate npc's if you want to steal their home

    When I start the game (Skyrim VR) I put everything I need to start as a master thief into barrels that I place around the torture chamber in Helgen so that I can pick up my gear before the tutorial quest is finished. I need my arrows, I need my bow and I need my special sword that I made in the CreationKit which has special damage to undead, I need my Thef armor, and the Blackjack and some lockpicks.
    I also need to start the game with all the pickpocketing skills and perks maxed out, same with sneaking and archery and lockpicking. This is simply because I roleplay a master thief, not a novice thief that starts as an helpless amateur and grows into a master thief Well in order to do this I use a .txt file which I invoke through the console when starting the tutorial quest. One just writes the codes to the stuff one wants in a .txt file, give a easy name like 1 or something. and then use the console ingame () and write bat 1 and then all your wishes comes through

    my humble list of desirable things I put in the text file is as follows :

    player.additem 000E3C16 1

    now as the list sure gives lots of magic related perks and sets lots of magic related skills to max, which seems odd given that the list is for a non magic using master thief, I must admit that, well I do that in case I later want to change into a magician y'know so I have that option available to me, but by setting my magicka to -100 my character is at present unable to use magicka, so my thief character remains a non magic wielding person despite it all.

    Wow that took some time to write, hope it helped in some way

    If you also want a txt file to help you out when overencumbered by too much loot, create a .txt file and perhaps name it 2
    then when needed, just call on it ingame through the console writing bat 2 then press enter. The code you need in your 2.txt file would be : player.setav carryweight 9999
    The boost in carrying capasity would need to be re established on your next playthrough thow, as it doesn't carry over with your savegameinfo. If you want to boost your carrying weight capasity permanently I believe a mod like Leveler's Tower is the way to go, https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspec...tion/mods/2692

    I should also mention that the txt files you want to call on through the console ingame, has to be placed in the same folder as SkyrimVR.exe
