Step 16 – Checkpoint 3


Launch Skyrim Performance Monitor now. Then launch the game.
Follow the instructions below.

  • You know the drill. Start a new game by opening the console and typing coc riverwood.
  • Unlike before, you are now very likely to encounter occasional frame drops (depending on your hardware). With tree and grass overhauls, overgrown regions might be especially taxing.
  • There are no specific things to check out at this point other than general performance and whether or not you like the aesthetics.
  • Some locations you might want to visit:
    • the Guardian Stones at Lake Ilinalta
    • the path from Helgen going north to Riverwood
    • Falkreath forest
    • Whiterun, right inside the city gates or looking down from the steps leading to Dragonsreach
