Question about .esp

Recommended Posts


I downloaded the mod Elemental Staff-15152 and in the .7z I find: Texture Folder, Meshes folder and elemental stave.esp.

What is the purpose of the .esp? (I think it's a plugins to craft those stave.)


If I only want to replace the original staves witht he new texture and meshes, does I need to instal the esp?

I think the answer is no ;) but it's only to be sure because i am a new Skyrim modder.

The ESP is needed; it's what switches the texture based on the staff's type. The "staff" object normally only has one texture, no matter what effect it may have, so there has to be a script of some kind to differentiate between the enchantments and apply the correct skin.
