Optimized Vanilla Textures - HD

Question

Hi there,

 

I've just started to modify Skyrim with the Skyrim Revisited guide but I'm having a couple of problems with the Optimized Vanilla Textures.

 

The page on Nexus mods have been modified two times in the last five days, I do not know how to successfully add it into mod manager.

 

The HD textures file was downloaded manually two days ago and added to my profile in Mod organizer. (I'm not using the DDSOpt method)

 

At that time I installed those files: Optimized Vanilla Textures SD, Optimized Dawnguard HD, Optimized Hearthfires HD, Optimized Dragonborn HD.

 

Tonight I saw the link on Nexusmods had changed and there is only one option. My plan was to replace the files in Mod organizer with the new ones.

 

There is now two file to download for the High definition:

 

- High Definition Base Game Textures for Everyone (Part 1-2)

- High Definition DLC for ModOrganizer Users (Part 2-2 - Extract Me)

 

What is the right way to install it now?

1) Go to https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0TtWtkCraS7UTlibjItU2xXbE0&usp=sharing#list

2) Download High Definition Base Game Textures for Everyone (Part 1_2).7z and High Definition DLC for ModOrganizer Users (Part 2_2 - Extract Me).7z.

3) Disable BSA Extraction In MO Options - Plugins Tab.

3) Install High Definition Base Game Textures for Everyone (Part 1_2).7z as normal from MO.

4) Extract the three 7z files from High Definition DLC for ModOrganizer Users (Part 2_2 - Extract Me).7z to a temporary directory.

5) Install Dawnguard.7z, Hearthfires.7z, and Dragonborn.7z as normal from MO.

6) Re-enable BSA Extraction In MO Options - Plugins tab.

Hello,

 

Many thanks for your answers! If it were up to me, I would not go to work and I would correct mods immediately :)

 

Some additional questions to install Optimized Vanilla textures.

 

1- The file "High Definition Base Game Textures for Everyone (Part 1-2)" contains three folders : 00 Textures, 01 Installation Files for Non-MO Users, fomod and a wizard.txt document. Do I simply add or drag the textures folder into mod manager? I tried it yesterday and it told me invalid game data :(

 

2- With the new High Resolution DLC file, do I only need to replace my old files Dawnguard HD, Hearthfire HD and Dragonborn HD which are already in my Mod organizer with the new ones? (Using the Replace option?)

 

A little bit off topic, for the prerequisites of DDSOpt do I change only the section configuration and ini or I continue the install with the 'launching an optimizing patch" section?

 

What is the valid location where the recognized images files are located?

 

After fixing this, everything should be good with the mods!

Wish you a great day :)

1) Use the install mod button in Mod Organizer and point it at the 7z. Do not install it manually. It will come up with the FOMOD installer.

2) Yes

Dear Neovalen, thank you for your guide, that has been a stable guide for me for the last two years. It invaluable and all the work you do is beyond measure. Started a new profile and using the above mentioned HD optimized textures. Following your guide on your Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition page, you still have UHRP(unofficial high resolution patch) installed. According to Tony971 on his page if you use the high def version, this patch is no longer needed, as he has intergrated them into his optimized HD textures. Therefore is it still required in your guide. Thank you again for all your work, and a little insight regarding this appreciated.

 

yours sincerely Berndaroy......SORRY NEOVALEN found your answer on one of your other replies!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Neovalen,

 

I am a first time Skyrim Revisited intaller, thank you so much, your guide is amazing and I am so happy that you keep it updated!  I just wanted to let you know your guide does not include steps 3) and 6), and I had to find this thread to be sure --maybe you would like to know this

I just wanted to second what ZannaLion said.

 

I remembered repeatedly seeing on Arthmoor's mod pages the warning, "DO NOT EXTRACT YOUR BSA FILES!" so when MO asked me about extracting them, I was really hesitant and ended up picking not to, even though the guide had already had me enable that. I decided to check here on the forums to see if it's really necessary to extract the BSA files/why I need to, and I found the above instructions in this thread, which differ from the current guide instructions.

 

So I'm just wondering which is right, and if these are the right instructions, then as ZannaLion said, maybe it should be changed in the guide to prevent other new users from making the mistake of extracting these BSA files. 

 

Also if anyone could explain the reason behind extracting BSA files to me, or direct me to where I can learn more about it, I would really appreciate it :) I'm mostly content to just trust and follow a guide that has led lots of other people to a successfully modded game, but when instructions are contrary to what another hugely respected modder has said with no explanation (that I saw), I'm a little hesitant. Sorry if it's a dumb question! I've been modding skyrim for quite a while now (with varying degrees of success), but it seems there is always more to learn!
