Skyrim is getting remastered for current-generation consoles and PCs, with the game receiving a significant graphical overhaul and the support for PC mods in the Xbox.

Or if you are so hell bent on modding, do yourself a favor and build a PC. Someone politely asked for help modding Skyrim on his/her xbox and got downvoted to the plains of oblivion for it so here is my follow up post for introduction to modding. I have the entire process memorised by now since I used to do it so often and here is my tutorial. NOTE: This requires a modded console which would get you banned from xbox live (which can be bypassed but I don't know how) so if you play online, you may stop reading right now or get more info on xbox live stealth servers using JTAG commands. REQUIREMENTS: • JTAG/RGH modded console • (which is awesome for a load of other things too) You can get modded consoles on ebay,pay to get your consoles modded or mod it yourself (would not recommend).
In case you decide on the latter, is the most recently updated guide I could find. INTRODUCTION: You can download pre-converted mods but I convert PC mods to xbox compatible mods myself. If you want to do it too google it yourself.
The guide involves putting the data on your USB. You can also burn a new Skyrim disc with the mod preloaded using ImgBurn which is super hard (don't even try). Colt Trooper 22 Serial Numbers. I recommend using an external USB. Many Skyrim mods can only run by ripping the entire Skyrim game on a disc along with the data and will work as an addon DLC disc, this method is used to pirate games and is useless unless you have the necessary hardware on your PC so only use mods which are reported to work as DLC.
Modding high definition texture packs are out of the window since the Xbox360 hardware is incapable of running anything HD without lag. Also forget about armor packs if they contain meshes that come in dual 'sizes' i.e contain two files namely armor_0.nif and armor_1.nif or something. I recommend using since it runs as DLC and has 105 mods prepacked so you don't have to mod over and over.
Individual mods need to be converted first, fairly easy if they are run as DLC, if not you are better off without those mods. MODDING • Install Freestyle Dash • Confirm the mod is JTAG compatible when you download. I do not know the process for GOD or NXE so don't even ask. • The JTAG mods have several files that need to be copied over to the Skyrim directory in your xbox HDD. • Copy the DLC data to your USB inside a Games like USB0/Games/Skyrim/. • Next is the load order. Using the Freestyle Dash File manager utility to copy the DLC into /Hdd1/Content/007E6/00000002 in your xbox HDD.
• The load order is from bottom to top so copy your most important mod last and least important first. • Reboot • Go to the addon menu in Skyrim and initialise the mod which will show up as DLC. This had worked for me most of the times and like me only trial and error will help you. Many of you won't go through this tedious process anyway and you don't have if you just get a PC but if you do then refer to for further reading and you WILL need further reading.
I did not get round to doing this after official DLC like dawnguard etc were released so proceed at your own risk. Now I moved on to the full fledged PC Master Race long ago so don't bother asking me for further help when you try this. In fact don't try at all unless you are seriously determined to mod your console and have nothing to lose. I never modded my game intensely except some extra quests until the official DLC to pass the time, then I discarded the mods. I don't care if you even bothered to read this but when someone asks for modding help, don't just downvote just because you 'think' xbox cannot be modded, the console community is already fickle here, dont drive them away - former skyrim/halo modder for the xbox here, can confirm, mods possible. JTAG modding is totally legal in USA unless you use it to run pirated games.
EDIT: formatting and typos. Writing games require dual layer verbatims and a high efficiency equipment that goes by the name of a LiteOn iHas. All this costs huge $$$, I was lucky enough to get one from a friend who bought two as a part of a discount. This equipment already pushes the meagre 7.92 Gb capacity of the discs beyond its limits (that's how they fit 8.4 gb xbox games on those discs you generally buy retail). Add mods into the equation and you have >10 Gb data on a single disc which even if possible via huge dual layering is highly unstable. If you someone has so much money to throw around, they could just buy a PC already or upgrade their rig.
