Various core immersion mods missing

Recommended Posts

Now Snow Under the Roof - although primarily a texture fix, i consider it the immersion sphere due to image fixes (unless there are other texture fix mods in the guide im unaware of, and its well patched for various mods)

JKs overahuals - pretty much standard issue for overall better quality scenery and locations compared to the not at all adequate vanilla towns and cities (and yes i realise there is issues with certain AI mods, but those that care about immersion have created patches)

iNeed, Frostfall, and Campfire - the latter 2 can sort of be considered to be included (barely) by Survival Mode, but iNeed and CACO are almost mandatory for immersion...

Wondering why these are missing, amongst others....?

EDIT: btw, these are legit queries as to their un-inclusion, and not some random criticism, despite how i naturally formulate my wordings...

We use CACO. JK's is a deviation from vanilla, and doesn't meet our mandate for modding the game. Our other mods take care of the issues you  mention with respect to the rest of these mods. Install Step SSE and you will see.

No Snow Under The Roof - the one i would be most ok with in the post. (dont have the know how if it is worth it)

JKs - I think it diviates to much, i relly dont like it, would never ever install it. Needs a lot of patches as i understand.

The survival trio - There is "Surbvivval mode". If adding survival themed mods it is very important that it is easy to turn them off, i would, i dont play Skyrim as a survival game. I dont play Elder Scroll games for these kind of features.

Just my opinion.

No Snow Under the Roof is mostly unnecessary with Better Dynamic Snow 3.x. They both fix or enhance vanilla snow on/under roofs, and they do it differently. It's a (subjective) matter of choosing one or the other. STEP uses BDS so NSUtR is out.

Yeah thanks guys - I guess NSUTR just became a mainstay for my mods over the years of modding LE and SE in the beginning, as did iNeed, Frostfall, and Campfire for the sheer Immersive aspect of it for a game set in a 'Nordic Viking Barbarian' environ where the cold matters. Its also why mods like Immersive Armours became a must because they cleanup the 'skin' shown on various gear that just simply would not be the case - the realism aspect is what Im after, even if that deviates from 'vanilla' any some ways, but clearly - and understandably - thats a strict mandate for the STEP and I can respect that.

To be honest, its why im (finally) following the 1.5.97 STEP version for a complete setup to have some key features we all know should have been in the game to begin with, and as im nearly done i should be back into the Holds once again soon...

Oh and Gopher man, Gopher.....been catching up on Leonards exploits which got me going again eh...

I used to use Immersive Armors just like so many others a few years ago... but it is not that good after all, i think.

When it comes to realism i often deviate a bit from STEP using/testing "Comprehensive Sleeves Pack", "Modesty Mod", "Practical Female Armors", "Sleeved Guards and Stormcloaks", "Sleeved Imperials" and "Warmth - Light Armor Replacer" and some other mods.

I like a more "realistic" range of armors and chlothes.

Ha-ha me too :) I'd recommend listening to his behind-the-scenes Confessions of a Let's Player (YouTube), they're pretty funny too and interesting. I've also been watching his let's play of Mass Effect - Legendary Edition (YouTube), I'd recommend it too if you enjoyed that game. It's not as entertaining as Skyrim and Leonard however IMHO, due to the linear and railroaded nature of Mass Effect (and the lack of mods).

Actually, i think these are the armour mods i was thinking of, not Immersive Armours, which i think i also considered way to far off cannon (as opposed to vanilla) in the end and also causing to many other issues...

      Following a clean re-install of Skyrim AE, I've been reinstalling the Step Guide and had intended to include everything. Because of this I have installed the ENB options in all the steps prior to Post Processing. Now I'm not so sure I want to install/run an ENB with this build. Is it safe to jump to Step 05 or do I need to remove and reinstall the mods with the Post Processing (blue) flag? I am getting between 91-115 FPS in Riften with my new 144 Hz monitor.

      Hi! I have been trying to mod my Skyrim game for a couple of days now and I have been meticulosly following the STEP Skyrim Special Editio Guidelines and I have finally arrived to step 6.24.2. I already finished sorting the plugins with LOOT and already finished the standar cleaning procedures. Now I have to proceed with the performance benchmark which requires to launch the game for the first time after downloading and installing all the mods. Now here is the problem: When launching Skyrim, it will open, it shows the logo and a little loading animation on the bottom right, and it closes itself after a couple of seconds -No error pop ups or anything. I am pretty new when it comes to modding and I have no idea of what could be causing this problem, and I would love to fix this instead of uninstalling everything and retrying in a couple of months.
      Thank a lot beforehand!

      Discussion topic:
      I'm Walkin' Here by Fudgyduff
      Wiki Link
      SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.
      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).
