Alternate Language Mods

Recommended Posts

Dear STEP-Team,


I am trying to set up STEP in german, but I want to maintain a clean installation:

  1. Many translated mods need the original mod and state that you have to overwrite the original to replace the english esp file. Would it also work to install the translates version as an independent mod in MO2 and just place it below the original?
  2. I realized that some mods earlier in the installation order have a standalone german translation. I deactivated the original, installed the translation and moved it right below the original. Is it ok to leave the original disabled or should I deinstall it?

Thanks for your time =)

And an unrelated Question:

Often STEP recommends a 2K resolution, but the mods are available as
Main: 4k compressed diffuse maps and 2k compressed normal maps


Optional: 2k compressed diffuse and 1k compressed normal maps


What does that mean and what should I pick in that situation?

1. Yes, that would work.

2. Yes, that is fine. Unactivated mods do nothing.


Texture size is up for you to choose and depends on your system. I still play at 1080p, so I only have 4K textures installed for large objects. It doesn't matter which you choose, in regards to the Guide. The result will be the same. The only difference you'll see is VRAM load and potentially performance drops, if you over do it for your system.

      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.
