And we have a new and HOT version on Nexus. :)

Version 2.4.9
* An Embers XD style makeover to hanging oil trap.
* Fixed glitches with forges when using Mathy's 3D Blacksmith.
* Lakeside Manor fireplace no longer emits smoke.
* Flames on NPCs are no longer buggy when Fire Magick Add-On is not installed.
(Fire Magick Add-On now requires a small ESL plugin.)
* Added a patch for Mathy's Skyrim 3D Cooking.

I compared Ember HD and Ember XD and it's Ember HD that go for my game.

Ember HD was worked on for years while Ember XD is recent and has a lot of placement issues in the game.

 

Any way it's difficult to find an Ember Mod that fit perfectly to vanilla game style (without looking out of place).

I think XD has rounded the corner and is superior now, especially since it is ENB compatible out of the box. It works nicely for Step using the install instructions we recommend via the wiki link in the OP

I used HD for a while even after STEP went over to XD just bc it was in my opinion to "over the top" and unpolished. But during the last months i think, just like @z929669 , it has been improved and is now superior. In the FOMOD there is a page where you can "tone it down" a bit, i check all those boxes. I am still not that happy with the torches though, they are tricky to get right.

I tick the middle three boxes on that FOMOD page, but I have ticked them all before. I suspect that ticking them all might be best, but I haven't gotten around to comparing the results for all fires for each of those settings.

I'm officially getting frustrated with this mod updating so frequently on Nexus. Another update this morning followed by yet another 'beta' update this afternoon, which means that this update will likely be posted later today or tomorrow.

With sooooo many tweaks needed, it's really obvious that the MA is not testing anything comprehensively before releasing. If relying on community feedback, it would be great to accumulate a list of fixes and constrain the updates to once a month or something. I think this mod has been updated nearly 50 times in the past 6 months. Geez.

That said, at least it's being maintained!

You do realize that you don't always have to be on the latest version....

The fact is that the more updates a mod receives, the more traction and popularity a mod gains. I have definitely noticed an uptick any time I have released an update. Part of this is it draws users back to the mod page, and they remember to endorse the mod. It also encourages users to comment or add bug reports. Also, the mod briefly gains front page status on the Updated tab on the Nexus. Just remember that such frequent updates are a blessing, as it means the author really enjoys their work.

Yep, I get it. This is why I finished my last post with a positive note about it being maintained. I tend to update every time just to keep abreast of changes. Still frustrating, but I do get it.

I don't update every time. If the changelog doesn't indication anything of importance, I'll skip it sometimes and wait for the next one. I do that for almost all mods.

I do it mostly to look for changes in the installation (FOMOD, file names, or otherwise) in order to keep our instructions up to date.

      If you use xEdit to flag every plugin in your load order as an ESM, you gain the following benefits:
      1) "Fixes" the _Overwritten_ large reference bug since ESM's can overwrite large references.
      2) "Fixes" the esp temporary reference bug*
      * All temporary references in esp are treated as persistent references which are kept in memory forever (loaded before you get to the main menu) and there's a relatively low max of 10^20 in memory (CTD when exceeded)
      Downside(s):
      Seriously I can't think of any.
       
      What am I missing here?  Of course it would be ideal to have the game or MO2/Vortex/Whatever automatically promote esp's to esm when loading the game, but that functionality doesn't exist.

      Immersive Equipment Displays by slavicpotato1
      Wiki Link
      Display unequipped gear and custom items on the player or NPCs. Works with any item with no additional meshes required. Does not use body slots. SKSE64 plugin. Custom in-game user interface for configuring everything in real-time while you're playing. Includes a flexible positioning system for both equipped and unequipped gear.
      I find this mod extrememly immersive. Pulling weapons and items out of thin air always seemed awkward. Seeing the dragonborn actually carying around their equipment and arsenal adds visual flavor and realism.
      Optionally can be combined with Simple Dual Sheath for dual wield builds.
