Going through STEP guide, but I don't have DLC. What should I do about the patches and etc?

Question

Hello! I was told to try STEP out, having finally gotten into Skyrim, and just from the looks of things, it looks great! However, I never bought the Skyrim DLC's, and it appears that STEP uses them a lot. I've just finished the Conflicting Graphics portion, and I'm moving onto Landscape, and the whole time, I've just been choosing the options that don't deal with DLC. I noticed that there are patches at the end which require all three DLC. Should I be worried continuing into this?

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi!

 

If I can make a suggestion, go ahead and get the DLC. I know, that's probably not the answer you were hoping for, but almost all of the up-to-date mods with the best support (not STEP specific, but Nexus specific) take Dawnguard and Dragonborn for granted. Hearthfire and the High-Res DLC not as much, but the High-Res is free, so that mostly leaves Hearthfire. I actually can't think of anything that isn't Hearthfire-specific that relies on Hearthfire besides housing mods, but still, it's probably better to play it safe.

 

If you skip the DLCs, especially the first two, you're going to have to rely on older mods, older versions of current mods, older patches, and miss out on a lot of the nifty current stuff.

Thanks! And yeah, I know I should get it. I just don't have the money at the moment to drop on $45 worth of DLC, I'm probably going to end up waiting for a sale. I know I'll have to wait on older mods, but that isn't a problem for me, but I do want to eventually. I honestly don't really want much out of Skyrim right now, other than making it look better, which this is helping with, and a stupid Dragon Ball Z mod.
