Discord for STEP

Recommended Posts

I looked around the forums and found nothing (many skyrim modding guides seem to have discords), so does STEP intends to create one in the future?

We already have one. It's just not a public one, atm. We do plan on opening it up to the public, possibly with the launch of our forum update.

Waiting on Mediawiki 1.35 ... sometime in August. Then it will be a lot of work on the backend getting that working. Probably September-ish for forum update IF they actually release MW 1.35 in August.

 

Even then, Discord is largely redundant with forums, and the info on past resolutions is harder to find than on the forums, IMO.

Discord servers are much easier to search than the forums.

 

Main thing I dislike about them is that users cannot find the solution to their problems on Google.

I guess it's subjective then. Another problem is that we don't own or ultimately control Discord info. I like the idea of STEP Discord channels for general discussion and hangouts, but for solutions and informative posts, it's not as reliable IMO. Googling is one issue, but so is linking to a specific post from anywhere else. Anyone can see such a post if it's on the forums. With Discord, I think you would need to join the channel and all that. Then there is the problem of longevity and reliability of the info ... call me skeptical, I guess.

 

It seems redundant to use both Discord and the forums. Just that much more work to support yet another venue.

I agree that forums do have certain advantages, but discord is also an easy place to share screenshots maybe it would be a good ideia for STEP to have a section for users to share and discuss screenshots.

Yeah, the public discord will only be used for general chat and possible quick general support. All of STEP support will still be handled on the forums. Our discord will more or less just be a hangout. However, staff will likely used it for our purposes more than the hangout. It's very handy to coordinate releases, dev work, etc. when there is more than one person doing things at once.

Agreed. Discord is the better option for gen discussion and real-time events.

TechAngel85 Thank you for continuing the STEP program. I've done multiple installs and variations over the past few years. Always works well once you FOLLOW the directions and your learning curve gets better. Between the Mod Creators and programs like STEP a crap game can become something amazingly fun and pure eye candy.

      Hello,
      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.

      Hello,
      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.
