Iron Helm During Chargen

Question

After a fresh install of STEP (probably my tenth or so time over the years between STEP and SRLE), I started the game to make sure it was working and ran into a bug where the PC wears an iron helm during chargen.

 

Ran it a few more times to make sure it was a consistent bug, googled around a bit and did some researching in TES5Edit on my own and have narrowed it down to one of the quests added by Stealth Skills Rebalance. I narrowed it down by deleting the quest via TES5Edit, and the issue disappeared. Restored from backup and it reappeared.

 

The specific quest is triggered during the first main quest unbound, so perhaps that is the cause? Perhaps someone with more experience than me with quest modding (I have none) can help patch it so that it no longer is reliant on that trigger and replace it with another?

Hmm... I remember there being a weird glitch with an iron helm before. I do not have a working install (hardware issues) right now so can not check. If someone else is having the issue we might need to include instructions on patching on the page once we narrow down the conflicting mods.

 

To be sure you're not using any non-STEP mods correct? Nothing like Alternate Start: Live another Life etc.?

I actually remember this happening now too. I'll see if there is a way to patch it when I can. To get around it, players can simply choose the sex they want the PC to be, play through Helgen, and after exiting the cave use racemenu to change their appearance to how they wish. Same result, just a delayed character setup.

No other mods installed. Just STEP Extended 2.10.0 in its entirety, did downsize some textures via DDSOpt but only on things like SRO with 4k textures, which are killer on HDD loading times.

 

For a fix, I just used a bat file to remove the iron helm, but the rest of the iron armor should be removed as well, PC has the whole set but the prison garbs are equipped in place of the boots, cuirass, etc.

 

Mods are sorted via LOOT with all the rules set, cleaned where supposed to with TES5Edit, masters resorted except for the one mod in the guide that said not to resort masters, I think Hearthfire Expanded?

 

Its not a huge issue, my only concern is did any other important scripts not fire that were supposed to? I have made it to Riverwood with only one issue, Hadvar didn't follow me through the prison dungeon once, he did meet me outside the cave though. He did follow me other times, I tested like 3 or 4 times.

I had the exact same issue. Double-checked my install to make sure everything was kosher...seemed fine. Had the issue appear again.

 

Restarted a third time, didn't look around on the carriage ride and got lucky, no iron helm at character creation.

 

That was the save I kept and played from there.

I can't see anything in xEdit or the scripts that would directly correlate to this issue. At this point I would have to dig into the CK, but when it gets to that point, it's best to just post a bug report to the author.
