To clean or not to clean.... (TES vs FO)

Question

Good evening all,

 

It has been awhile since I wrote a post on the forums and I hope everyone has a had good year thus far. My question is coming from wanting to follow the modding video guide on FO3 from Michael at Gamer Poets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7KCEMddYKs&t=. He recently discovered that cleaning the DLC from FO3 was not a good idea according to a few sources. Michael has since put the video series to a short halt. So here I am today wanting to do a STEP install of Oldrim. In sections 2.B/2.D should I still follow the guide as is and clean the update and DLC or will it do more harm than good as it could in FO3 and FNV? Thank you.

I may be branded as bit heretical for this but... I don't really think it is as necessary as it has been made to be.

 

Yes there are a few cases where "wild edits" may have been left behind, in which case they should pose no problem if removed, but there may just as well be the same number of seemingly pointless records left behinf that also pose no threat if left alone!

 

So, it comes back to the user. If the guide/video/friend's advice is to do "such and such" I don't think you will ruin your system if follow that advice.

 

There is one special case I know of where cleaning is actually not a good idea because the mods NEED to have those vanilla records in tact: Tales of Two Wastelands. There it is specifically instructed to NOT clean your DLC otherwise their plugins may not work.

Tale of Two Wastelands is an amalgam of FO3 and FNV data into the Fallout New Vegas engine. I only mentioned it as @D1Z4STR mentioned he was following a FO3 guide.

      I am pretty frustrated with SSEEdit lately.  There is no 64 bit version with the latest download and I cannot get my older version (4.0.3h) to work anymore.  It keeps telling me there was an error and that editing is disabled.  I can't run scripts or anything.  (There IS NO ERROR in the log).  Was something changed?  Every time I try running 4.0.4 I get an out of memory error.  Whats more I can no longer post on Discord to get help.  I have to sign up?
       
      EDIT: More Info: Version 4.0.3h used to work fine without using the 64 bit version until a couple of weeks ago.  The 64 bit version seems to be working ok so I guess I will use that until I get an answer.

      Short version: I have a complete list of cells copied to an .esp, and I don't want to have to go through and flag each one as Deleted individually. Is there a way to do this to all the cells in the .esp?
      Long version: I'm using a replacer for a dead shrub. The replacer makes it a much prettier 3D green shrub, but Bethesda placed the dead shrub in all kinds of caves and mines, so I want to remove it from those cells. Ain't nothing green supposed to be growing in there. So I found the shrub in xEdit, copied every reference over into an .esp and removed the ones that could realistically be home to lush green flora. I'm now left with looooong list of cells each with only a few Placed Objects of these shrubs, but going through them all and changing flags individually is gonna be a nightmare. So I'd much rather see if there is a way for me to do this across every cell I've copied?

      I was trying to create a patch but SSEEdit wouldn't let me.  The plugins were inaccessible. The plugins were grayed out with a line through them.  What's going on?
