!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING WIN10PRO KB3176938 breaking MO2's  usvfs_proxy.exe in some way !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also KB3176935 Reported by {crime_syndicate} after Anniversary update (thanks for the info)




Do a system restore prior to KB3176938
then run the new FO4edit (I use it via TES5Edit.exe -fo4 -edit -l:fr -cp:utf-8)
then installed the KB3176938 with all the other updates for win 10 Pro


Note: BodySlide x64 failed to start for me I had to add the 32bit version run it 1st then the 64x version worked


If it fails after reinstalling KB3189031 you will have to disable it with hide or show update https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930?utm_source=twitter

Nice work. I've changed the title of this thread as well as all the references in your wiki to "ModOrginizer" to "ModOrganizer". Just me being pedantic.

If you have updated to 1.7.9 F4SE and you remove mods or update to the new weather system in the Guide you need to start the vanilla launcher through MO2 to make a save because F4SE bombs the game on missing mods splash screen. Once you have logged into the game make a New save this save will work with F4SE


Have Fun!!!


7/08/2016 Fixed in F4SE ver 0.2.2

I've got a problem. Finished installing everything, ran the game, seems to work, except the inventory sorting rollup and icons don't display anymore. Nor does a custom HUD work, all I get is the default.


Custom HUD is in E:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4\ModOrganizer2\mods\DEF_UI\interface\DEF_CONF, so it's the right place.

DEFUI is before Val's Item Sorting, checked with FO4Edit, tags all still there. Ini's are correct.


This is driving me up the wall and across the ceiling. 



PS. Atomic Radio and Tales from the Commonwealth throw a whole bunch of errors in FO4Edit.

I have no real idea other than you are using MO2 in portable mode and installed it in your FO4 directory and did not follow the guide. I have too many issues with using FO4 in portable mode and it's why I made the wiki.


NOTE: Unsure why people run MO2 in portable mode if you have MO 1.3.11 installed for Skyrim etc Mo2 will not affect it. (Unless you do something crazy)


[spoiler=Converting to My wiki is easy.]

  • Save your load order and mod order 1st
  • move your Mo2 folder to E:\ModOrganizer2
  • make a Folder E:\ModOrganizer2Data
  • make a Folder E:\ModOrganizer2Data\Tools
  • Add the E:\ModOrganizer2 folder to Windows Defender Exclusions
  • Make ModOrganizer.exe run as an Administrator
  • Start MO2 and click the little blue mo2 icon in the top left
  • choose fallout 4 not portable
  • now you will have no mods displayed like the books says DONT PANIC!
  • Close ModOrganizer
  • Move the Contents of the Mod Organizer folder from C:\Users\{User}\AppData\ModOrganizer to E:\ModOrganizer2Data
  • Delete the ModOrganizer folder
  • Open an administrative command prompt, then create a symbolic link with the following command "mklink /J C:\Users\{User}\AppData\Local\ModOrganizer E:\ModOrganizer2Data"
  • Start MO2 Go into MO2 Settings and in the NEXUS tab enter your login Information.
  • Exit MO2
  • Now navigate to E:\ModOrganizer2 folder
  • Move the folders named download, mods, webcache, overwrite and profiles into E:\ModOrganizer2Data\Fallout 4
  • That should be it (any guide specific paths are E: for you now)




I know it looks like a lot but something simple looks complicated when typed out.


Moral of the story follow instructions if using a guide. No I cant help you with a portable install (I cant get it to work properly I have tried)


PS: You better have a clean FO4 installation and not be a NMM user with randumb stuff all over the place because that won't work either.......


PPS: All the extra info is not directed at you ceilingrat it's to all you other people that decided to skip steps and are looking for solutions and if you did not follow the installation in the guide then the above is how you get back on track.

Thanks for the very quick reply. I'll try that. I'm also obviously blind, as I didn't see the portable thing.

      This is a beta of [FNV|FO3|FO4|FO4VR|TES5|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERAL|ENDERALSE]LODGen/Edit with terrain LOD meshes and textures generation.
      This is for experienced mod authors and users that know how to use xEdit, xLODGen or DynDOLOD already.
      Installation and Setup
      xLODGen beta 94 - based on 4.1.4b
      Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any Steam, game or mod manager folders or special Windows folders like Program Files.
      Rename xLODGen.exe to [game mode]LODGen.exe (TES5LODGen.exe for example) or start with command line parameter -fnv, -fo3, -fo4, -fo4vr, -tes5, tes5vr, -sse, -enderal, -enderalse
      Use -o:"c:\OutputPath\" command line parameter to change where files are generated to, default is the game folder. Then install output as a mod.
      Do not generate into any game, any mod manager folders or special Windows folder like Program Files x86.
      Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 - Required by LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe and Texconv.exe/Texconvx64.exe. Get matching platform x86/x64 depending on which xLODGen.exe (x86) or xLODGenx64.exe (x64) is used.
      RTFM and Share Results
      See the included Skyrim-Occlusion-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions or give feedback in the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread.
      See the included Terrain-LOD-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the settings for terrain LOD generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions about terrain LOD in this thread for a more in-depth explanation if required and share feedback (with screenshots) about results or problems.
      These tools generate LOD meshes and textures "exactly" like CK, but not like the meshes and textures which are shipping with the games (they are often manually edited).
      However, these tools provide more options and higher resolutions (use the x64 version if there are memory errors because you believe you require 4k or higher) and can be updated to add more useful features and options.
      I did some testing in the different games, but finding the best combinations of options and settings requires lots of testing and are a matter of personal opinion and which game is used, the load order, mods, even different worldspaces probably.
      That means, I am only able to give generic guidelines and hints to send you off to find and test for yourself and share your results. My main interested is that generations works correctly and without problems for now.
      Check out the thread xLODGen Terrain Settings Compare. Also refer to any modding guide which has a list of relevant mods close to your load order.
      The object and tree LOD generation is the same as the current versions of xEdit / xLODGen. Refer to their respective descriptions and explanations.
      Obviously, users of Skryim/Enderal/Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/EnderalSE continue to use the easier and more comprehensive DynDOLOD for drastically improved object and tree LOD generation and only use xLODGen for terrain LOD (and maybe Occlusion) generation.
      First Time
      Here are suggestion to start without going crazy and that should be quick enough to generate:
      Set quality of meshes for LOD4 to 5 and then +5 for each next level. Or just set levels 8/16/32 to 10.
      Check protect cell borders (yes it fixes the ugly terrain drops at outer cell borders that still exist in Fallout 4).
      Use the max vertices setting only if you want to hard limit max file size.
      In Skyrim Special Edition or Skyrim VR, if you notice terrain briefly flickering when new areas are loading in, set [Display] bEnableLandFade=0 in Skyrim.INI
      Set Optimize Unseen to off for LOD4 for first generation. Start experimenting with a value of 550 with a quality setting of 10 or lower for LOD32 (used for map) and compare coastlines and file size to other settings.
      To quickly generate terrain LOD meshes just for the map, check only terrain LOD Meshes, check the Specific Chunk checkbox and set drop down to 32. Leave SW fields empty for complete map or set SW cell coordinates to same values as a *.btr filename to test a specific area with lots of water, river etc.
      Set texture sizes to 512 for a start. Larger sizes and large world spaces will take a considerable time (like 15 to 30 minutes or more easily). Each higher resolution means quadruple the work.
      Use DXT1 for diffuse and 565 (DXT1 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition and VRAM is not of concern use BC7. Uncheck mipmaps, raise steepness and Bake normal maps.
      For now, leave the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma at 0 and 1.0 respectively. It seems that only Skyrim CK and Skyrim SE CK are manipulating the intensity of the textures to adjust for the noise.dds and the god awful "improved" snow shader of Skyrim SE (just turn that thing off, really). If textures seem too dark in the game, brighten the noise.dds instead or vice versa. That way you can get perfectly matching LOD textures that look just like the textures in the loaded cells. For Skyrim a good average color of the noise texture seems to be around #C0. See below for a couple noise texture downloads.
      If you want to test larger texture sizes, use the chunk option to limit the number of textures that need to be generated. For example, check [x] Specific chunk, leave the drop down empty and set WS to the lower left cell coordinate of an 32x32 area, like 0, 0. It will then generate all textures up to 31,31. Not all worldspaces have their origin at 0,0 so you will have to check already generated meshes/texture filenames for their lower left coordinates.
      Questions and Feedback
      Obliviously anything related to terrain LOD should be posted in this thread.
      Posts related to Occlusion should be made here.
      Recommended Optionals
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega)
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega) - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots)
      SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm (Mega) - Entire map from -96,-96 to 95,96 with northern ocean extension. Useful for mod authors.
      Put in game data folder obviously. Adds back terrain for Skyrim (Tamriel worldspace) at the outer edges so there is no missing terrain meshes/textures when generating terrain LOD for Skyrim.
      Load as early with lowest priority as possible, so that any other plugins overwriting or adding land records or cells with the same coordinates take precedence.
      Only required to be loaded when generating terrain LOD. No harm done when loaded in-game but typically the player can not get close to these areas. There are no effects outside the far away added cells.
      Single color flat noise, Adjusted vanilla noise, HD Terrain Noise Texture SE
      Examples for Skyrim. Install to game folder like any other texture mod. The noise texture is applied in-game on top of terrain LOD textures, so no effect for LOD generation.
      Only the red channel is used in case the textures is not a grey channel format. MipMaps are ignored. The textures is tiled 3x3 per LOD quad, e.g. for LOD level 4, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 4 cells, for LOD level 8, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 8 cells and so on.
      For testing terrain LOD distances. Plain color terrain LOD textures for Tamriel with coordinates for every LOD quad. Green for LOD 4, yellow for LOD8, blue for LOD 16 and red for LOD 32.
