The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, mod recommendations

Recommended Posts

I actually tried playing this game back when it was first published but the combat mechanics turned me off.

I'm biting the bullet and planning a complete series playthrough, so save integrity is something I would not want to jeopardize.

I'm looking for some recommendations on unofficial bug fixes and possibly some quality-of-life and/or UI mods that would help enhance the experience. Nothing cheaty. I would be fine with a vanilla experience.

I don't recall if Gopher used any. I think he went completely vanilla, correct me if I'm wrong.

On the third or fourth play through I used a half dozen mods that made the simple stuff easier, like Auto Apply Oils. A couple were mods I wrote. I don't recommend mods in Witcher unless you have played the game several times first. I never added any mods to the Enhanced Edition.

In Witcher 1, all I used was the clues fix. 

In Witcher Enhanced Edition I played 2 complete games in 71 hours. That is a short game. I rarely mod short games.

After doing some research. I ended up with a pretty similar list.

Currently wading through a list on reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/witcher/comments/6y3a2w/the_witcher_1_indepth_modding_guide_updated/
It seems to be going in the direction I was wanting to, which is Vanilla-ish HD and QOL/bug-fixes.

This game needs a mod manager. I'll post some screenshots if I'm happy with the results and I live to see the inside of this game. :lol:

Played through the prologue. Not gonna lie, I don't love the combat. :rolleyes: Still, it's not as bad as I remember it to be. I appreciate the story more this time around.

I'm pleased with the choice of mods. The game looks great. The frame rate does suffer at times when the action gets busy, but for the most part it's stable. The game crashed on exit once, before any mods were installed. No crashes since modding it (must be the LAA 4GB thing).

Again, a thank you to everyone that pinched in with their suggestions.

Final list (in order of installation):

I mostly followed this list and guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/witcher/comments/6y3a2w/the_witcher_1_indepth_modding_guide_updated/

As promised some screenshots from inside the game:
