S.T.E.P Guide - When to enable mods & Manual Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Dear STEP-Team,

Currently, I am trying to set up S.T.E.P., but I have some questions:
  1. Sometimes there is an extra step, stating that a mod should be enabled in MO2 (ex.: Step 2 - MO2 Config - Tool Setup 3.). However, for most of the mods, that step is not mentioned (ex. Step 4 - Extenders - SKSE64). Does this mean that I always have to enable mods unless stated otherwise?
  2. The Dawnguard manual cleaning procedure: What does "Dawnguard.esm header" mean (7. and 9.) - the "Record Header"-panel or the "[02] Dawnguard.esm"-panel (which deletes the whole Dawnguard CWGuard Template)?
Thank you very much 1f60a.png I Iove your project, keep it up!

Oh and by the way, could you maybe add xEdit to the tool setup table? I totally missed adding the SSEEditQuickAutoClean.exe, because I thought that I already added xEdit in the instructions above. I only realized that there should be two seperate executables for xEdit , when I saw the timestamps of the esm files in the data folder.

This is a special step for SSE Terrain - Tamriel because the guide instructs you to create an empty mod and copy the downloaded ESM into this folder. This special step is required because Mod Organizer does not automatically activate empty mods. All mods that are installed by clicking Install Mod or double clicking in the download folder are automatically activated.


Hopefully this screenshot comes through and clarifies where to click in SSEEdit.

Ok, so maybe it's a dumb question, but: Does that mean, I should always activate mods that are not automatically activated (like SKSE64)?


Thank you very much! Your screenshot helped indeed.

      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).

      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 ?
