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.

      I followed the STEP guide for SSE to the letter and booted up the game prior to the Mod Configuration Menu Settings settings near the end of the guide.
      The game loads, but pressing Esc or Tab crashes it immediately. 
      I installed SkyUI (which I figured was the problem), sorted with LOOT, and now I have no issues.

      Just a heads-up, the SSE 1.0.0 guide does not list SkyUI as a mod to download.  It contains patches related to SkyUI, but not the mod itself.
      Great guide, guys!  It was easy to follow and I have zero complaints so far!

      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.
