System Setup Guide

Recommended Posts

I am excited to see the progress that has been made since my last visit to STEP. Thanks for all the great work!

I noticed a couple of typos on this page (stepmodifications.org/wiki/Guide:System_Setup_Guide):

1) There are two places where reference is made to "Modding Folder". I believe these should read "Modding" folder (since the folder is recommended to be called "Modding").

2) The suggested folder for xLOD outputs is currently "xLODGen_Oputput".  This should probably be "xLODGen_Output" (without the "p")

In the section titled "The "Modding" folder structure should now reflect:" the second line refers to the folder "..\Games\Modding\GameName".  I am not sure what step in the instructions produces that folder. Did I do something wrong? Or will that folder be created in a later step?

Also, it might be helpful to mention the subfolder "..\Games\Modding\Tools\xLODGen\xLODGen_Oputput" (with the correction I mentioned earlier).

I corrected these typos in the System Setup guide.

I left this one alone, but I think you can ignore the ..\Games\Modding\GameName folder listed here. I suspect this was left over from before Mod Organizer supported global instances. If you choose "Create a global instance" as recommended by the guide, this one installed copy of Mod Organizer can be used to manage all supported games.

Exactly. This had been fixed I thought but must have missed this one instance. It had been inconsistently recommended in many areas so all should now be consistent.

Just keep in mind when making changes to this Guide is that it's used for all games, not just Skyrim, so try to keep things generic.

Typo in Guide:Mod Organizer/Hide Assets:

3. To hide a file or folder, right-click on if and select [Hide].

      Hello,

      I've followed the instructions for the SSE Anniversary Edition carefully (https://stepmodifications.org/wiki/SkyrimSE:2.0.0), the version I have. After installing the mods from Step 4 - 02 (Extenders), I tested the build by launching with SKSE, and it immediately crashed. I tried a couple more times before going back over the instructions, starting with the system setup guide. I haven't been able to find any step that I missed, and whatever I've been able to check in my build looks correct. 

      Prior to adding any of the Step 4 - 02 Extenders, the game launched as normal from Steam. I launched in order to restore the Creation Club DLC, as per the "Restore Original Masters" section in Step 3.

      I went ahead and disabled every mod in the left pane, including the Cleaned Vanilla Masters, so that only the vanilla plugins were enabled. I then tried launching through Mod Organizer 2 using the Skyrim SSE launcher (not SKSE). It still CTD'd immediately. Launching the game through Steam still works fine.

      I've attached my latest crash log. I'm afraid I don't know how to read these, but after several failed attempts to launch the game I see there's an identical line at the top of every crash log:
       

      I went ahead and searched the forum for "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" and found several threads that mention it, but none of them have run into the problem at after Step 4 - 02. 

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Hello. I am following the S.T.E.P. guide, and noticed at the Flickering Meshes Fix mod that there are options for Parallax support. It appear that the S.T.E.P. guide does not have you installing any Parallax textures. If I want to install those at some point in the future is that okay to do? Will it disrupt the guide? Or perhaps I can come back at a later time (after installing, say, 2020 Parallax mod, and then enable the Parallax options inside this mod. Thanks~

      Hi, I am doing the latest Step Guide with little alterations like having Mysticis over Odin, Adamant as perk overhaul or adding followers. I didnt saw anything that odin is especially needed but in LOOT theres warning in Step Patch - Conflict Resolution.esp --- This plugin requires "Odin - Skyrim Magic Overhaul.esp" to be installed, but it is missing --- Apart from that theres no other warnings/errors in LOOT. Do i need Odin with this get-up or can something be done (its not that i dont like changes but i simply like vanilla feel better bcs i dont play often and i do prefere it that way)

      Heres Load order from LOOT if needed:
