yep, take notes was the mod in question.
I used Live Another Life, Frostfall, Campfire and either iNeed or Realistic Needs and Diseases, can't remember which. also had all the usual visual stuff like Pure Waters etc. I think I used Perkus Maximus for perk overhaul.
the High King mod was an updated version of the old mod, it's unofficial I think.
thanks for complimenting my khajiit, it was definitely an interesting angle. I also had her write in more human-like ways since it's obviously a process to try and write in a khajiit manner. my excuse was that her parents taught her how to speak around humans so she could try and overcome the barriers that there are for khajiit later in life or something.
the DLC is cool. on a wood elf stealth archer character that I put 40 hours into, I did the house next to the lake in Falkreath from Hearthstone. I messed around with Dawnguard a bit but the first mission I went to in a cave I couldn't even see anything because of my darkness mods even when holding a torch or a lantern mod, lmao. So I gave up on that. As for Dragonborn I've not messed with it at all.
