Beginner help for installing STEP SSE

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Some years ago I enjoyed LE edition of this guide thoroughly! I haven't played the game or played with mods since then, so I remember very little. With that little preface lets get to it:

According to the tools setup, I should place the tools in the modlist before the vanilla game files. However I don't see any vanilla game files. I remember them being there for LE, but for SSE I have only DLC's and something called "Creation Club". I have a screenshot attached to clarify. I'm at the tool setup part of the guide, and I'm about to get them setup with MO. I would think that the vanilla game files mean the DLC files, but my experience with this guide is, it's very precise in its language, and since it doesn't say DLC game files, I'm getting an itchy feeling. I hope someone can help!

Your guess is correct. Here 'vanilla game files' is meant to refer to any module (DLC, CC) shipped with the game, as opposed to mods installed by you.

It doesn't really matter where you put the 'xEdit Output' mod in the list, as it's used to temporarily hold files created by xEdit, that you should move to a permanent and specific location afterwards. This mod should be empty (ignoring the Backups folder) in normal operation, i.e. when playing the game.

It's suggested to put it at the top of the list (below the 'vanilla game files') so it's easy to locate and doesn't need to be moved as the list grows. But you can also move it at the end if you prefer. I prefer to keep all the temporary/work-in-progress stuff at the end of the list, next to MO2's overwrite folder.

Same. I place xEdit Output early in my LO and temporary stuff late.

      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!

      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).
