Errors with mod instructions for HD Stone Quarry and Clay Deposit (by skyrimaguas)

Recommended Posts

I've run into a situation that doesn't seem to have clear instructions.

 

mod: HD Stone Quarry and Clay Deposit (by skyrimaguas) + Stone Quarry for Vanilla Rock Texture optional file

 

The instructions by the author on the nexus for this mod simply state to extract the main file into the data folder and then the same with the optional file, overwriting when prompted. When using MO2 for situations like this do I use the manual or quick install? Manual install doesn't appear by default so the mod is packaged in a way MO2 at least 'thinks' it recognizes. If I do quick install do I give the second one the same name so that it prompts for a merge or replace? Or do I keep separate names and let the nature of MO2 do the overwrite 'in effect' rather than in actual?

 

I also noticed that on the 'detailed instructions' page the file paths don't match the mod. The mod separates the textures\_byoh and meshes\_byoh folders but on the wiki page they are listed as meshes_byoh without the '\'.

 

The last part might be answered by the answer from the above two points but the detailed instructions don't specify which mode to hide the files in so I assume they 'are' supposed to be merged in some way but I'm unclear as to how. Would it work if I just quick install both mods, the optional file later in the mod order, and hide the listed files in both mods? Trying to check my understanding on mod architecture in general here.

 

I have read the Mod Organizer page, including the installing section, but it doesn't remove the ambiguity here. Intuition tells me I can do this with either install method as long as I'm paying attention but I want to see what I can learn here.

 

Thank you for your time!

I would install the main file normally and then install the optional file with the same name as the main file and select merge.

 

I'm a bit confused on the instructions to hide the files myself. I initially thought @TechAngel85 had a typo and meant meshes\_byoh and textures\_byoh, but this hides the entirely of the optional file.

I've updated the instructions. All those files are also included in the Main File. The next Guide release will have Majestic Mountains so the stone textures will no longer be needed.

Still missing the '\' after the first folder. I see the change in the first paragraph so I don't think it's my browser...

      Starting a list for all the mods in the current STEP guide, which are in need to be updated (or already are) to work with the current game version 1.6.640. I'm listing only relevant mods in each category (please correct me if i missed anything).

      Hi!
      I'm have made 3D LODs and I want to create a "performance version" of the 3D LODs. I noticed that the Step Modifications team has created plenty of 3D LODs for various tree mods with this option. I'm unsure where to start in this process of optimizing the tree models. So far, as you can imagine, the decimate modifier in blender seems to be greatly lowering poly count but at the cost of a deteriorated model. I have seen the term "flat trunk models", but am also unsure of how to do this or what it means. Does this refer to the trunk after running it through hybrid.bat? Any advice on where to start or what tools to use? Also, should I only concern myself with optimizing the trunks or would it be wise to include optimized crowns?
      Thank you in advance for any help!!

      I've trying to make trees, so I used speedtrees to create first tree. I've exported tree model to .obj format and textures in png. After it i converted png to dds. In blender I checked tree, connected alfa channel and it looks like good.
       
      Then I've exported from blender .obj and opened in NifScope, so all was ok, but then I started to put textures I fond problem
       
      Here you can see black color around leafs, so how can I fix it and remove this black color? Maybe something wrong with textures ?
