Quick Guide if your loot is not working but want to check through your mods[edit]

Manual ordering - not using LOOT[edit]

Make sure sort by priority is on look in the Left pane, the little lightning bolt with + or - - has something overwritten + overwrites everything above it

If you select one of these mods and scroll through your modlist you will see other mods in highlight in green, they are being overwritten in some way by this mod. Any highlighted in red are overwriting the mod you selected.(Group/Drag these one together in the order of overwrite you prefer.)

Group all your mods[edit]

Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch Armor and Weapons Keyword Community Resource
{Settler mods}
Settlement Keywords Expanded

then all your Textures or Meshes

then all your Weather mods

then Player mods - like cbbe, body textures clothing

then ui and gameplay

when you see a -lightning double click go to conflicts tab, if the mod you have selected is being overwritten by what you want then all good otherwise drag it below the offending mod. Try to keep all the mods that overwrite each other together. It will keep you sane.

Caliente's Beautiful Bodies Enhancer -CBBE-
Caliente's Beautiful Bodies Enhancer -outfits-
Additional Body Textures - Ghouls and Old people
Vault Booty 1.0.4eaw Experimental Atomic Wedgie

so in that example the Vault Booty overwrites the CBBE vault Suit Ghouls and Old people look like they are supposed to and CBBE gets it updated clothing pack.

To keep things ordered (visually) I create empty mods (that are not enabled) and I name them appropriately, then move the mods under them.

In the left pane click create backup
Keywords, homemaker, robot defense, snap and build basically things in italics move them to the top then Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch
then your other esp files

Only thing else you can check for is in the data tab, things in highlighted red. They they are esp's being overwritten by some mod. If you hover the mouse over them it will tell you which mod is doing it and you can verify in the left pane if that is the correct overwrite, If not you have to move the mods in the Left pane to change the overwrite order.

Now that the basics are setup.....

Using FO4Edit to find issues[edit]

Fire it up and make sure all the esp's you are running are selected. If it bombs out read the right pane for the error and move the mods accordingly usually something like Exception: "Whatever.esp" requires master "Whatever.esm" to be loaded before it

Once you get the order right then all the mods should appear.

You can right click on them then apply filter (default settings) then you will SEE the exact overwrites.

e.g. I use Bobble Girl, Functional displays and Valdacil's Item Sorting

Functional displays >overwrites > BobbleGirl.esp > Valdacil's Item Sorting reverts the Model So to get Bobble girl to work I drilled down BobbleGirl and did the appropriate edits to an over write mod.
