Hello,

 

I just want to draw your attention to an inconsistency in the STEP guide regarding AF setting.

1.E.1.2. Nvidia Users

Force Anisotropic filtering:

  1. Set Anisotropic filtering mode to [user-defined / Off]
  2. Set Anisotropic filtering setting to [16x]

 

 

But then if you click on Detailed Information --> Nvidia Inspector Guide: Editing Skyrim Settings

 

it will list:

 

Notice:Users not using ENBoost should set Anisotropic filtering setting as indicated below. ENBoost users should ensure the Anisotropic filtering setting is off and set ForceAnisotropicFiltering is set to true in the enblocal.ini file.

 

Anisotropic filtering mode This should be set to User-defined / Off. Anisotropic filtering setting Recommended value is 16x; however, a very slight performance gain can be achieved with a lower setting. It is not recommended to drop below 8x. Setting this to a high value like 16x as recommended, may cause texture shimmering in mid to long range texture LODs. If this happens, adjusting the LOD bias value can help to remedy the issue. To learn how to do this, visit the Advanced Settings section below.

 

 

I'm guessing the AF setting should be set according to the Notice on the NVIDIA Inspector guide page? Could I please have some clarification? Thanks.

It really didn't matter which you use (driver or enb). The only difference is the enb AF skips some textures Boris claims shouldn't have AF processed on them, whereas driver AF will process all textures. I used to be able to tell a very, slightly better quality when using drivers. The difference is so small that most users would never perceive it unless they're using super high resolution textures.

Ok thanks! So I shouldn't have both ENBoost and the driver AF enabled, just one or the other?

 

Looking forward to Step 3.0!

Correct. Just one of the other.

 

Thanks, it's getting there...  ^_^

Is this Guide valid for Special Edition as well? Is it outdated?

It's a bit outdated on the wiki. I have a more updated copy that I'll get out soon.

I pushed out the updates to the Guide. As was planned for its v3.0 update, it's no longer Skyrim focused and is a more generic, informational Guide.

Can someone check and confirm that the second link to the tool i added is correct and it is the same program and STEP does not specifically need the older version?

If github is fine, we may want to delete the guru3d link?!

      Hello,
       
      I am having an issue where I cannot force HBAO+ via Nvidia inspector or control panel with a 1080 Ti.  I was able to do so without any issues with my 780 Ti a while ago.  I've tried a variety of AO compatability flags and various combinations of settings to no avail; there is simply no effect in game.  I did get it working in Fallout 3 so the issue is specific to Skyrim.  I'd appreciate any advice.  Thanks.

      Hey all, I'm very familiar with the STEP guides for Skyrim (including SRLE and SRLE Extended), and looking to jump into FO4.  I found a handful of FO4 guides, looking for your experienced opinions on the best/most stable/current FO4 mod pack/guide.  
       
      Here are the guides I found so far...

      I posted a couple of weeks ago about a STEP SE guide addon. It has developed into a proper STEP build, which is why I decided to start a new topic. This is a guide based on STEP SE and you use it instead of STEP SE. It is in a finished state and I am currently game testing.  I will add the guide to the STEP wiki soon, which is as easy as cut and paste some text. It is currently on Github only.

      On the todo-list:
       
      Revisit the animations section of the guide and check out Project New Reign - Nemesis PCEA as well as other animation mods.  
      ___________________________________
       
       
      Introduction: Welcome to Dread's Skyrim Build
      Link: https://dreadflopp.github.io/dreadsskyrimbuild/
       
      This guide is a STEP build based on the STEP: Core build. The STEP team has built a base with mods that enhances and fixes Skyrim without breaking the vanilla look and feel. This guides further enhances Skyrim, adds to it and alters elements of it in several ways.
       
      The mods featured in this build are chosen to be immersive and realistic. Realistic in a fantasy setting means believable. The mods should feel like they expand or enhances vanilla Skyrim, like they could have been there from the beginning.
       
      What to expect
      Support for the Survival mode from Bethesda Creation Club. HD textures for landscapes, structures and buildings that keeps the vanilla look and feel. HD textures for clutter, armors, weapons other items. Bigger trees for a truly immersive forest. Enhanced visuals with Cathedral Weather, Relighting Skyrim and Luminosity Lighting Overhaul. New unique armors are added to the game. New weapons types with custom animations. More adventures with new quests and new lands to visit. Overhauled cities, towns and villages. Expanded character creation with the CBBE female body with realistic presets. Overhauled character leveling and skill system: Overhauled skill trees with new perks. Overhauled magic with new spells. A new class system. New experience system that encourages exploration. Slower leveling to allow you to experience the dlc-sized added content before maxing out your character. New, tougher bandits and dragons. New NPC's and followers. This build is made to be easy to install
      No LOOT rules, every conflict is resolved with the patches. Run LOOT and you are done. No bashed patch. All level list conflicts are resolved by the patches. No merging of plugins. Every patch is esl-flagged to make sure the plugin limit count is not reached. Advanced FOMOD installer for the patches. No need to choose which patches to use, the installer does the work for you. Almost all mods are optional
       
      All mods in this build are optional, except for:
      Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch. Cloaks of Skyrim and Winter is Coming. Use them both or not at all.
