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!

~Sincerely

Halde

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.

      It would seem that we have this mod accepted in our guide in lieu of Dark Brotherhood Tenets Restored, a Skyrim texture mod which works on SSE. It would seem that user LtdJorge effected this change on September 17, 2020 without anyone catching it. See the wiki page, which @z929669 added the note that the mod name changed, but it actually is a totally different mod by a different author. I do not see any discussion of this change, and given that these mods appear to be much different, I have marked this mod for testing and redirected the wiki to the original mod.

      Seems like a no brainer to me.

      Looks promising.
