SETUP[edit]

Start Fresh[edit]


The SkyRem Guide requires a freshly installed, never modified Skyrim Special Edition (Anniversary Edition) Version 1.6.353.

Always start with a clean setup when starting or restarting any guide. Sometimes this is the only way to ensure there are no remnants from a previous modding experience gone awry, or left overs that will result in issues later. Unintended changes can happen to the base game files, no matter what is done to keep them untouched. If ever in doubt, start from scratch by removing, re-downloading, and re-installing. While this is a hassle, the last action prior to Step 1 below is to create a Backup in anticipation of needing to start over.

Make sure Steam is not in the Program Files directory. If it is, install it elsewhere. The ideal scenario is on a separate drive from the OS, preferably on a SSD drive. Having Steam installed in the Program Files can lead to issues during the modding process.

With a clean setup, create the INI files, turn off the Steam Overlay, and disable Automatic Updates in Steam as follows:

1. Launch Skyrim through Steam to complete setup of INI files, then exit the Skyrim Launcher (but keep Steam open).
2. Click [Steam] and [Settings] in the tool bar.
3. Click the [In-Game] tab and untick the [Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game], and click [OK].
4. Click [Library], right-click [Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition], and select [Properties].
5. Click the [Updates] tab, and under Automatic Updates, change the drop-down to [Only update this game when I launch it].

The Creation Kit (CK) will be needed to properly port mods. The CK can also be used to modify plugins and create new mods, though we will not be using these functions (out of scope of this guide). To get the CK:

1. Download and install Skyrim Special Edition: Creation Kit from Steam.
2. [Launch] the Creation Kit through Steam. When asked to if you want to unpack Scripts.zip, select [YES]. This may take a few minutes.
3. Once the scripts are unpacked and the CK completes loading, [Exit] the CK.
4. Navigate to the Skyrim Folder (where CreationKit.exe is now located), and create a new text file naming it CreationKitCustom.ini.
5. Copy and paste the lines in the following box into this file, save, and exit.
[General]
bAllowMultipleMasterFiles=1
bAllowMultipleMasterLoads=1

[MESSAGES]
bBlockMessageBoxes=1

Until the Creation Kit Fixes mod is updated to the newest CK release, download and replace the CreationKit.exe with this one: Creation Kit EXE

Before beginning installation of the tools and mods, setup a folder structure to keep things organized. Currently, there should be a Steam folder that contains Steam and Skyrim SE. In the same folder in which Steam is located, create three more folders:

1. Navigate to the folder in which the Steam folder is located.
2. Create three new folders and name them Tools, Mod Organizer, and Backup.

The end result should look something like this:

This PC > Game (E:)
  Backup
  Mod Organizer
  Steam
  Tools

[Display]
iTintTextureResolution=2048

[General]
ClearInvalidRegistrations=1

Cleaning The Masters[edit]


Many of the core files contain ITMs (Identical To Master) and UDRs (Undelete and Disable Record). These may be harmless, but some (depending on your setup) can cause CTDs if not handled properly. In order to address this, cleaning plugins with these dirty edits is necessary. To begin, make a copy of all of the ESM and ESL files in the Skyrim Data folder and place them in a safe place (leave them in the folder, just make a copy). The files in the original location will then be cleaned, packaged into a mod, and then replaced with the originals in order to keep the Skyrim (and Skyrim Data) folder as vanilla as possible.

1. Copy and paste all ESL and ESM files (except the Skyrim.esm file) in the Skyrim Data folder to a temporary location. DO NOT include Skyrim.esm. There should be 78.
2. In MO2, use the Executables drop-box to select [SSEEdit QuickAutoClean] and and click [Run].
3. Select ONLY the Update.ESM and click [Run].
4. Once the Quick Clean mode finished message appears, exit.
5. Restart [SSEEdit QuickAutoClean] and repeat for each of the plugins listed below. There are 44 plugins of the 78 that need to be cleaned - this will take some time.
       - Update.esp
       - Dawnguard.esm
       - Hearthfire.esm
       - Dragonborn.esm
       - ccasvsse001-almsivi.esm

       - cceejsse005-cave.esm
       - cckrtsse001-altar.esl
       - cccbhsse001-gaunt.esl

The Dawnguard plugin also requires some manual cleaning.

1. Launch [SSEEdit] (not the QuickAutoClean) and load only Dawnguard.ESM.
2. Navigate in the left pane to: [Cell] >> [Block 5] >> [Sub-Block 3] >> [00016BCF].
3. Remove the [XEZN] record under the by clicking on it under the [02] Dawnguard.esm header in the right pane and selecting [Remove].
4. Navigate in the left pane to: [Cell] >> [Block 2] >> [Sub-Block 1].
5. Right click [0001FA4C] in the left pane and [Remove] the entire record.
6. Navigate in the left pane to: [Cell] >> [Block 8] >> [Sub-Block 1].
7. Right click [Sub-Block 1] in the left pane and [Remove] the entire sub-block.
8. Exit SSEEdit, saving Dawnguard.ESM.

Create a Cleaned Masters mod and move the Vanilla files back to the Data folder.

1. Navigate to the Skyrim Data folder with the files that were just cleaned. Select all the plugins except Skyrim.esm and create an archive.
2. In MO2, click [Install a new mod from an archive] icon (second icon), and open the archive that was just created. Name the mod Cleaned Masters.
3. Move the backup files back to the Skyrim Data folder, letting them overwrite the cleaned files, and delete the archive in this folder.

Make A Backup[edit]


To prevent having to restart from scratch [again], this is a good time to create a complete backup of everything up to this point. If something goes wrong, this will be the restore point. Backup the entire /Steam/SteamApps/Common/Skyrim Special Edition/ folder, and place the archive in the Backup folder, naming it Skyrim Vanilla Backup. Do the same with the Mod Organizer folder and the Tools folder, resulting in 3 backup files in the Backup folder.
