Do I include "Bethesda Hi-Res DLC Optimized" with STEP:Core?


I am not utilizing the full official HRDLC because I only have 1 GB VRAM, so I am using these mods as recommended (mentioned in STEP's "Skyrim Installation Guide"):

"Hybrid (1024 + 2048) + Vanilla NormalMaps: Select "Core files" (selected by default), "Hi-Res Secondary stuff", and "Hybrid + Vanilla NM files". Also install the "Compatible Version" optional."

However, I didn't see whether I leave these mods as separate from STEP:Core or include them in it. Do I activate them before starting my STEP:Core installations of mods?  Any kind of clarification would help and would be much appreciated!

If you want to strictly follow STEP Core, then they should be installed with the rest as that mod is marked as a Core mod.


Keep in mind that textures are probably the component of STEP that you have the most control over without breaking your setup, though.

      Following the STEP Core program most users will end up with some Optimized versions of the HDdlc and Vanilla textures.
      Based on what I know of LOOSE vs BSA, BSA would be better right? I could be TOTALLY wrong on this.
      Should I repack my HDdlc loose files into a BSA and have MO manage it?
      Would this hurt the game or help it?
      Or would this make absolutely no difference at all?

      When running the .bat file, all vanilla textures are separated into Vanilla Normal Maps, Vanilla Optimized, Vanilla Ordinary Textures, or Vanilla Uncompressed Textures... except for the book textures in the DLCs and the one broken file from Dawnguard. Shouldn't the book textures go into the Vanilla Optimized folder?
