v2.0.0 - Feedback & Bug Reports

Recommended Posts

Congratulations on the release of 2.0.0! 

I love what the beta guide already did to my game,
will at some point try to lift my beta adaptation to this one
and will definitively use it for my second playthrough.

A question regarding the included grass cache in the STEP CR 2.0.0 patch and the Grass Cache Fixes:
On the nexus page of the Grass Cache Fixes it is stated "Step 4: Ensure that you have a gid file and a cgid file for everything.",
but the CR patch only includes cgid files, is this intentional?

The GID files are in the BSA.

Ignore the steps in that description as we have done it for you. The gid files have been placed inside a BSA.

Thank you for all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into releasing this Guide.  I had been following it in it's unreleased state and will now go through what I have installed to update it.

I have a suggestion regarding the current System Requirements table:  links to the PassMark Software CPU , Hard Drive, Ram and System Benchmark s would (I think) help impress upon people the importance of ensuring that their system is capable of effectively supporting a STEP2 build.  If you agree, I am volunteering to undertake the change.

A second suggestion is that you consider adding Sync Plugins with Mod Order - Mod Organizer 2 Plugin to the MO2 configuration/setup instructions for the Guide.  I've been using this for a while and it done an excellent job of putting the plugins in mod list order.  Sometimes LOOT will make changes to it's handiwork; sometimes it doesn't.  Loot and this mod make it easy to have plugins in the required order.

There are links to the mentioned benchmarks already. They are in blue. 

Sorting via that plugin would break our guide, because our conflict resolution requires the mod order be how it is placed in the guides. That plugin would only be useful as a general guide on mod placement.

Well, I finally got around to installing the Conflict Resolution Patch, but it is giving me Missing Master errors on the creations that I don't have installed. Is there an easy way to fix this or should I just go without the resolution patch and make a Bashed patch?

The guide is for Skyrim Anniversary Edition, which requires you to have all the creation content and latest patch for the game.

Ah, I missed them.  Understood about the sorting.  Thanks.

Great work! Thank you so much.

But I'm stuck in section 8 with simple children. You advise to open FacegenForKids.esp with xedit because of on old reference which should be cleaned. But xedit does not allow to open the esp because of this. The esp is crossed out. What do I miss? How can I open the esp for cleaning?

This file requires the DLC and Simple Children's plugin to be present before you can edit it in xEdit.

In the instructions regarding the installation of DynDOLOD, I'm instructed to navigate to C:/Modding/Tools/DynDOLOD/Edit Scripts/DynDOLOD  and edit the TexGen.ini file there. That INI file doesn't exist.

Has anyone else had this issue? Am I missing something?

Make sure you've download v3, down in the Misc Files.

It's also "TexGen_SSE.INI".

*facepalm* My bad - I just didn't read lol. I'd downloaded the wrong file. Thanks so much for the quick reply!

If you know what you're doing, not too hard. Install the SE versions of mods rather than AE versions. Then remove or change the masters in the Patches. We're not supporting that though.

We understand a lot of users have not purchased AE yet. We're also aware that the only difference between SE and AE is the Creation Club content. All users received the update to Special Edition (currently v1.6.353, I think) so that shouldn't be a barrier to anyone except to those who are artificially preventing their games from updating. Since Bethesda has labeled Anniversary Edition an official DLC and Step stopped supported piecemeal DLCs many years ago, we decided to change gears after AE's announcement to support it for v2 of the Guide.

I'm a bit confused, can you clarify please?

The 2.0 of current Skyrim:SE(AE/1.6+) guide based around assumption that "all DLCs are obtained" which means "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition" DLC bought and installed and all of the Creation Club mods which come with it are obtained via download in-game? Or is it still possible to mod the game with this guide without Anniversary Edition DLC? And if so is it just the matter of creating dummy ESPs in Wyre Bash after installing of Conflict Resolution patch or it's much bigger problem and most of the mods in the guide assume Anniversary Edition is bought and installed?

Because I'm currently have a Skyrim SE 1.6.353 game version from steam installed but not the DLC. Do I need to buy "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition" to use this guide or can I still make it work without it? Is it still possible to use 1.0 guide for Skyrim SE 1.5.x or most of the mods listed there is updated to the current version of the Skyrim + AE DLC including CR patch?

Sorry if it was explained before here, at guide page or CR nexus page. Just trying to understand the new guide and what can I do in my situation.

It's explained at the top of the guide. We don't support anything but what it says; although, it's certainly possible to run with 1.6.xxx. We just don't offer guidance on that. The CC DLC costs $20 I think.

      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!

      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).
