My old save broke. What mods should I remove when I start a new game?



I think it's time to admit I've ruined my current play through. It's time to start over. But I have to assume that most of my issues are mod related, so it doesn't make sense to start a new game if those issues will just come back.


The biggest issue I was having seems to be script related. But I'm not exactly sure which as the problem seems to pop up in unrelated areas (I couldn't catch a carriage to Solitude, and then I couldn't place Meridia's Beacon on her altar without massive delays). So I figured I'd post my load order here and see if anything sticks out. Someone on the Nexus pointed out some of my weather related mods may conflict and I've disabled a few, but I figured I'd ask around and see if anyone knows of any issues with anything.


Mods struck out and coloured red have been disabled since I copied the load order. Orange ones are the other mods pointed out that I'm unsure of. Someone said on the Nexus forums that they could cause issues with CoT, but on their mod pages some are saying they work fine.

Thanks. It was a toss up between this and the other. I made the wrong call. Sorry about that.


I think the biggest problem is disabling some mods. Start a game with mods you will not disable. You can add mods freely, but disable them seems to be very harmful sometimes. Clean the mods with dirty edits.


I am about to start a new game. What I was wondering is if anyone noticed anything that could be causing problems in my last save so as to not experience them again in my new game.
