Post-Release Changes (Implemented since the 2.2.9.2 release)

Mods

C - Extenders
  • Stable uGridsToLoad REMOVED (Dec 16th, 2015) - This mod has a memory leak which has never been fixed by the author. This was recently brought to our attention on the forums and we have promptly dropped this from the Guide. STEP does not recommend changing uGrids! We only recommend our INI tweaks and DynDOLOD to increase distant detail in the game.
I - Clothing & Equipment
  • Closer Quivers and Longer Arrows REMOVED (Dec 3) - This mod has been removed since it is not needed. The fix this mod provides is for "screen archers" who are using the console to pause the game and move the camera around. This is not normal gameplay and is not a fix which is needed within STEP. The quivers in this mod are narrowed and elongated due to the longer arrows; causing texture stretching. This mod have been fully replaced by Better Shaped Weapons. Please see the updated instructions on the mod page to update your installation.
