Default Where To Begin?!

Hey subbies, I just recently been able to make more time to play SH3, 4, & 5. All through Steam. Its been about 2 1/2ish years since I've been able to sit down and play and wow!!!....so much has been developed by the modding community that I have no clue what to use, or can't use...what to install first or which mods I absolutely should use and which can wait til later.
As I said SH3 is a steam version as are the later 2...but starting with SH3 for now. I have yet to download it but its sitting in my library ready to install. Can anyone give me some advice and guidance as to which mods I should have and in what order I need to install and if any utility mods should be installed before I install SH3.
Also, I will be making separate directory files for different "expansion" mods such as LSH3, GWX....etc.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I have been through the forums for the last 3 days and no doubt there is a plethora of information and I have downloaded some of beginners must reads and such but I am still a little lost lol.

Jeffrey,

I highly recommend you read this guide: SH3 Guide 2014+

Best way to get started, read it all, plan your install(s) carefully and test the super/mega mods (GWX, NYGM, WAC, LSH2015) and then the small/individual mods.

Good hunting!

Thank you all for the help, and hopefully, I make it through today cause I am about to start loading all this on the comp. and the woman in the kitchen aren't going to be as enthused about this great game as I am lol....but I figure they tell me to stay out of the kitchen, I might as well do something productive, right? Any case, happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

P.S. Hey Berbster, there were no links below your signature....the only link was about donating. But I think I found everything I need....however, i would like to defer to your experience and ask that you send it again please and thank you.
