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.

      Embers XD by mindflux
      Wiki Link
      Install Lite version with the Lite beta update file. I also used the "High Quality" option for Embers XD rather than "Optimized"
      Use EmbersHD.esp plugin from main file (chose for compatibility in chaning from Enbers HD ... not sure if prudent) Set Embers XD.esp plugin from Lite beta update file as optional plugin in MO (It looks like Embers XD.esp (v2.2.3) = EmbersHD.esp (v2.2.1)) Install all add-ons (need screens for magic effect) Do not install any patches Place after Embers HD in load order (disable Embers HD and Inferno to match the Embers XD screens) NOTE: Embers XD is ENB compatible but performs nicely without ENB.
      Campfires: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      Sconces: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      Torches: Ultimate HD Torch (Step) > Inferno + Embers HD > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      NOTE: Torch flames for Ultimate HD Torch and Inferno + Embers HD lick very fast. Embers XD flames lick more slowly and behave more realistically.
      Forge: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      NOTE: FPS gain with Embers XD ... need someone to confirm.

      No Grass in Objects by meh321
      Wiki Link
      Accepted for next SE guide version (> 1.0.0)
      Prevents grass clipping through most objects.
      Mod performs a raycast in-game from each position where grass is located and if it detects a collision with another object then it doesn't place grass at that point.
      Needs .Net framework but that's already a requirement for MO2.
      OCD sufferers rejoice!

      Skyrim Remastered - Glaciers and Ice by gravos8890

      I believe this mod could be a better alternative to Just Ice in the STEP Guide since it provides textures to glaciers/ice on both DLC's for a more consistent look overall and LOD files are also avaible.
      I haven't had the time to test it but I think the mod is worth a look.
      Screens comparing Step (Just Ice, Cathedral Landscapes, SRO, others):
      Step > This mod
