Playing Skyrim Special Edition in 2023

I received Skyrim as a gift shortly after its launch in late 2011 (wow, has it already been almost 12 years?) and got about 10 hours in to the game before I got sidetracked. I tried to return to the game later, but installing mods proved more troublesome than anticipated.

After passing on so many sales in recent years, I finally caved and bought Skyrim Special Edition earlier today.

It's been long enough since my first time playing Skyrim that I decided to start a new save file.

But before I get started, are there any mods that Skyrim aficionados consider "must-haves" for a first playthrough?
