Dreadflopps Modular patches

Recommended Posts

Update 6 dec 2015:

The original pack has since long been split into several other packs. For information on how to combine the packs into one big overhaul, follow this link:


 

This thread is used to discuss the combination of my packs and some other packs.

 

 

Me and Nicopad have been working on a new gameplay overhaul pack. This is mostly made for ourselves but since sharing is caring we thought we'd present it here and see if anyone is interested in this and if we should make it into a proper Pack.

 

We would like to have some input, ideas and critisism to what mods we have chosen and to the Skyrim Community Uncapper .ini file. Thanks!

Interesting, definitely will need to merge some plugins - is there some useful literature for doing that, I have the scripts installed but despite following instruction the scripts don't seem to run. Great idea though. Getting all of these to work together is good but doesn't leave a great deal of room, otherwise very similar to something I've been trying to get to work together (not to the extent you have done though - I do like ERSO and Krytpyr's mods).

 

Anyway I am a fan of the plan.

I can do nothing but approve of this pack, I already use most of the mods in there (using High Level Enemies + Deadly Dragons instead of Erkeil's mods, and ACE instead of SPERG)

 

A little note concerning Morrowloot: The Moon and Star quest adds 2 items that are also in Morrowloot, so you might want to remove them from the mod in your patch :P

 

And a small mod suggestion: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/32562 (The standalone improved classes, powerful shouts and open encounter zones plugins of this overhaul are nice)

Looking forward to it and it looks like you were going to a home improvement site when you posted the link and it got added to the beginning of the link.

Here's the correct link.

Thanks!

Sorry, no idea why they won't run.
The tutorial on Merge Plugins description page works fine for me https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/37981/?
Try to merge patches, it usually works. Use efault settings but untick renumber formIDs. The nexus page also lists succesful and unsuccesful  merges. I have merged all regs patches except one (REGS Patch - CRF.esp) (edit: my error. All REGS patches are mergeable). All erso mods except one. ELE (made an "unofficial" USKP patch and merged everything) and our patches and I am up to 240 plugins.

 

@CJ2311
Thanks. Will check and remove thoose from morrowloot. YASH looks interesting. How does the open encounter zones work in game? They don't ruin stuff with enemies enering the wrong zones? Seems like this is hinted in the description?
A question, since you use mostly ACE skills, how many perks/level have you set in the uncapper, if you use it?

 

@phazer11
Thanks, link fixed

Solved the mod merging problem cleverly I had not updated to the latest version of TES5Edit. Have merged ELE and RS successfully but not ELFX, for some reason ELFX DG doesn't copy over fully. None of that is relevant to you of course but it does now mean that this pack can be tried properly.

 

Any reason why you insist on Extended rather than CORE?

Haha I'm not insisting on Extended, it's just what happen to have installed :)

Making some small changes:

Change BUM rule for morrowloot.esp to BEFORE complete crafting overhaul remade.esp (check so the name is correct)

 

Also, later today, Archery, Speech and Melee from ACE will be added. Working on archery patch atm. This will overwrite stuff from CCO and WAF but I don't want to touch that, better Kryptopyr does it is she wants. Which would be great :) This means arrow and bow crafting will be handled by ACE archery, if I read TES5Edit correctly. But you will have long and short bows :) 

 

Two questions:

Is the Packs wiki open for anyone to make a pack or do you need permission?

Any good magic perks mod?

I actually use the SPERG uncapper file, set to 1 perk per level (relying on dragon soul relinquishment for extra perks)YASH-OpenEncounterZones just makes it so that if you go through a door with enemies chasing you (in certain dungeons), these enemies won't stay behind and forget about you the moment you cross that magic line. Kinda like what enemies do in New Vegas.

ACE Archery is annoying to patch tbh, maybe simpler if you use the vanilla archery tree.And yes, you do need permissions to post a pack on the wiki, sending a PM to Z would be the easiest way to get one p: Edited by CJ2311

I made a patch which removed high level arrows from the leveled list and forwarded changes from explosive bolts visualized, but it'll have to be tested, which i don't have time to (Nicopad does all the testing, I'm doing this to have all set for when I eventually get time to play the game...). And I don't like the inconsistency with some crafting/tempering recipes being handled by ACE and the rest by CCO so I guess I'll hold on to that patch awhile. I'll pm Z :)

TEst test test .... all the work for me ;)

If it wasn't clear we tried to make a pack build around morrowloot (for the item distribution and rarity)

Erso unleveld world

And tried to make all the rest very modular so that anyone could find his kind of play in it.

Working not to bad for know :)

Checked out YASH,

  • improved classes - think we should use it. Buffs all clases, makes the game harder. One conflict with Stealth skills rebalanced thats sorted by loading it before SSR
  • powerful shouts - Good alternative if you don't want an "overhaul", just buffs vanilla shouts
  • open encounter zones - cool idea, unfortunately it has a conflict with every encounter zone (almost). If I had a time I could patch it (or rather just add a data flag every encounter zone in ERSO's mod), but its to much work

Got permission from Z to post in the pack wiki, hopefully I will have time to do it tonight​

Ah, forgot that ERSO changed the encounter zones as well. Nevermind then :P

I thought you guys were working on Requiem with SR:LE, why the switch? Im curious because I just (hopefully) got everything to work, and it would be good to know if there was some sort of big problem with Requiem.

Requiem was good and consistent, I just wanted to pick different mods that I like instead of taking it all from requiem (which IS really good). I also wanted weapons and armors stats to stay true to vanilla and CCF/WAF stats, and that enemies stay truer to vanilla. Requiem changed everything. Also, with using deleveled encounter zones, there is much better compatibility with mods like immersive creature etc. Not really a big problem with requiem though since there are a lot of patches but with a setup like this it is much less patching to do if you want to make a mod compatible.

I had almost no technical issues with SR:LE/Requiem.

Thanks  ::): Perfectly answered my question. Im happy its a matter of gameplay and not technical issues. In any case, while im too invested in my requiem build to try this out, this one looks mighty impressive!

      Introducing:
      The Return Of The White Wolf: Witcher 3 Modding Guide
      by rootsrat
      Wiki Link



      RETURN OF THE WHITE WOLF
      THE MODDING GUIDE
       This guide's main aim is to make the game a better experience, improving all of the game aspects to make it more challenging and realistic, better scaled and prettier to play, while remaining friendly to The Witcher universe lore, including the previous games and the books. This part is very important to me, so you can rest assured that if you follow this guide, you'll get The Witcher experience as close to the books as possible and the one that will be realistic and serious. Please be aware of your hardware limitations. If you are struggling to get the game running on Ultra/Uber details, you'll probably want to skip the configuration file modifications. The guide will be updated with new mods and better tools as they are released, so expect a lot of changes until all the basic tools are released and modding scene for Witcher 3 matures. The game itself is also being updated and the developers are working on the bugs, with the updates being released every so often, so please also bear in mind that the guide is written for the specific version of the game and may not work with the future versions of The Witcher 3. I will make clear indication which game version is the guide for. Another thing to note is that I am using GOG Galaxy version of The Witcher 3, not the Steam version, so adjust all the file paths accordingly if you use Steam instead of GOG Galaxy. The guide is using step-by-method to instruct users how to install the mods. It's listed from top down and it is advised to install the mods in that order to make sure that all directions are followed correctly and no steps are missed.

      I installed Dreadflopp's Dovahkiin Reborn pack, already have Survival by Smile, and intend to install the other compatible packs. In post installation instructions he says to set Global Priority for several .esp in LOOT, all of which are very large numbers, for example: RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp to 90100. Problem is LOOT only allows integers from -127 to 127... and I certainly cant find a way to change this. Not sure why the guide says this, and I'm not sure how to make this work. For now I've set them to numbers like 120, 121, etc. but I don't know if this will achieve the same result, especially because there may be other plugins that need to go in between? Can someone explain this to me?
