Nearly done!

After clicking subscribe on that lot, fire up skyrim and let the launcher download the workshop mods. When its finished EXIT from the launcher and start up the BOSS program that we installed hours ago

BOSS will order the mods into the correct start order so that the game launches properly and theres no conflicts (I hope)

Launch skyrim again after BOSS has done its thing and then click on DATA FILES

Find cloaks.esp on the list, make sure thats ticked and make sure that Cloaks - No Imperial.esp and Cloaks - Player Only.esp are unticked. Then tick anything else that is not ticked.

hit okay, then LAUNCH GAME.

Most of the mods are for female player characters, so probably best to start one a female character or drag Lydia everywhere ;)

Once in game press ` (key above TAB) and type in

fov 85

then hit enter and press ` again to exit the console. This will set the fov to 85 and make it look better :D

RichardWhitely:
So here is a massively cut down Skyrim Mod install - this one will give you purdy graphics, but not much else

If you haven't already downloaded the Skyrim HD DLC pack from bethesda - then do so! It's under DLC section in steam.

Next get these mods and download and install it using Nexus Mod manager:

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/8655 <-- Static Mesh improvement mod, this will improve the default textures and meshes, generally making things look nicer.

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/7192 <-- NO MORE SPIDERS

Not Essential

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/18916 <-- Lanterns of Skyrim - All in one - Sticks lanterns around Towns, villages and main roads. Just to help you find where they are at night.

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/120 <-- Beautiful Skyrim - HD Clutter and Furniture, better furniture textures.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=75827207&searchtext=towns+and+villages

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=78084859&searchtext=towns+and+villages

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=68336872&searchtext=towns+and+villages

(Do not need Nexus mod manager to install steam workshop mods)

Performance and Quality ENB: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/14646 <-- not as huge amount of a performance hit and should work with the majority of PC's. Plus unlike most other ENB mods, you will be able to see stuff at night!

Unzip/unrar the above mod and place it in your main Skyrim Directory. Also unzip and place optional remove black bars file in the main skyrim directory if you dont want the letterbox effect.

To make that ENB work grab this file: http://www.enbdev.com/mod_tesskyrim_v0102.htm - extract the d3d9.dll and place it in the main skyrim directory along with the ENB files.

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/15917 <-- Get rid of ugly npc's (different mod than the one linked above, this is an all-in-one mod too)

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/10168 <-- Required hair mod for the mod above

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/6709 <-- Female body mod - Screenshots are NSFW!

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/3563 <-- Female Face mod

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/498 <-- High Quality Eyes

Run BOSS as detailed in the post above to sort out the mods into the correct load order and then play game :)

http://www.geforce.co.uk/optimise/guides/five-fast-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-tweaks-guaranteed-to-make-your-game-look-even-better/ <-- optimise skyrim for nvidia gpu's

http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guides/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-tweak-guide?sf2686171=1/#1 <-- More detailed guide

AMD users can use the same guide, as all the main stuff is named the same in the ATi/AMD control panel.

Want to have more than just your equipped weapon showing on your character?

To do this go into the skyrim.ini file (found in My Docs/My Games/Skyrim)

and add

bDisableGearedUp=0

to the General section at the top of the ini file - below the other stuff in that section obviously! And now when you favorite a weapon (such as a bow), it will appear on your character! :D
