I've started using the STEP guide https://wiki.step-pr...com/STEP:0.2.0b and i'm stuck when installing AMidianBorn Book of Silence (SE)18px-Wikilink.png


I've tried following the instruction from the below page 


I've installed these mods one by one and they show up as different mods, the page says "STEP Recommends: Merging all files into single mod named aMidianBorn Book of Silence"

I don't know how to do that, when installing i had no request to merge mods..

I'm using MO2

When you install a mod, you should see a textbox at the top showing the name of the mod being installed. You can click in this textbox to change the name so all of them have the same name (e.g. aMidianBorn Book of Silence) and Mod Organizer will ask if you want to merge the installed files into the same mod.


If you've already installed the files as separate mods, I wouldn't worry about it. STEP recommends merging into one mod to make the left pane a little cleaner, but it does no harm at all if you install them as separate mods.

Thank you :)

Would it be better to merge them in case i go over 255 mods in future? (i usually break skyrim way before that but i keep dreaming..)

The number of mods installed in the left pane has no bearing on the number of plugins (*.esm and *.esp) you can have installed in the right pane. You can technically have as many mods installed as you want, but Bethesda games are generally limited to 254 or 255 plugins total. Note that Skyrim Special Edition also supports ESL plugins that all load into the same slot so you can theoretically have as many ESL plugins as you want.

      Not too long ago I modded my game after following the current STEP guide for SSE. After that, over time I added a few more mods not included in the guide and one of the ENB presets suggested in the guide for Cathedral Weathers, namely A Cathedralist's ENB. I downloaded and installed the high-quality main file from here: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/25296?tab=files . I have been playing the game during weeks without game-breaking issues and the ENB has been working fine.
      Very recently, however, I have noticed that the brightness output level in-game has suddenly shrunk. I have started to see things darker while I am playing. I play in exclusive fullscreen mode. However, any changes in the in-game brightness slider do nothing while I am playing. But if I quit to the main menu, there the previously adjusted brightness level is apparent. In other words, any changes made to the in-game brightness only reflect themselves while in the main menu, not while I am playing. Is that normal? Does it happen because I have installed ENB 0.462 and the aforementioned preset? Of course, I can always adjust the brightness levels in the in-game ENB menus. But it puzzles me that any changes made to the vanilla brightness slider only are apparent once I quit to the main menu of the game.
      Thank you for reading me.

      I'm following the STEP guide for SSE.  I've gotten to the H segment of the Models & Textures section.  A couple of these have not had an ESP file.
      Do I need to have it ticked in the left window of MO2?  I'm up to 85 mods enabled now, just following the guide, and I'm concerned that I'll reach the 255 limit before I'm done.
      I've used the search function in the forums, but there are hundreds of results for "no esp".
      Thanks in advance.
