STEP 2.2 Announcement

From Step Mods | Change The Game
Introducing STEP v2.2

STEP is evolving rapidly, and the upcoming release offers up many new features and resources. It is easier to install, and comes complete with tools and instructions that will greatly simplify maintenance by even novice modders. STEP v2.2.0 has been carefully, and faithfully, constructed to provide Skyrim modders with what we think is among the best looking, most stable, and lore friendly mod installation guide for Skyrim.

  1. General Community Updates
    • TheCompiler has given the broader STEP Team the privilege of assisting him in developing the Guide.
    • The core STEP Team consists of: Farlo, frihyland, stoppingby4now, and z929669 with TheCompiler at the helm as founder.
    • Moving forward, the STEP Team will not only administer the STEP Community site, but also help develop, test, and maintain the mod list and PDF.
    • The STEP Websites will be the main resource for all things STEP, housing the Wiki, Forums, and all development efforts.
    • The STEP Nexus site will continue to be the distribution outlet for official releases, and the primary gateway to official resources.
      • Look for an update of the Nexus site soon!
    • An additional project has been started named STEP Thunderbolt aimed at providing an easier method of getting, organizing, customizing, and installing all the various mods of STEP.
    • The mod list is undergoing closer scrutiny, and many new (and old) STEP mod candidates need to be tested for compatibility with 1.7 and Dawnguard. Expect a completely overhauled mod list in the coming weeks.
    • A new feedback system allows for greater coordination with the community, selection of quality mods, and easier updates between releases.
