2017 12 19: Work Resumed

Work on this mod pack has resumed. I've chosen to remove mods rather than continue attempting to merge them. So far I've had hardly any bugs, and the bugs I've reported previously are gone. Go figure.

Pre-Installation Setup

Please use standard operating procedures when modding. If your Skyrim STEP install works, then you have a good base to work from.


2.D Fixes

Essential mods that fix bugs and tweak deficient aspects of Skyrim.

Mod Name Notes
Crash fixesLink to the mod's Wiki page. Suggested by the Requiem Blog, fixes various bugs
People are StrangersLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Removes the players physic ability to know who people are before talking to them. Gives you a reason to talk to every person you meet. The effects are permanent upon game load.

Pick which ever optional file you want, if any.

Address UnknownLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Removes the players physic ability to know who's building it is. The effect is permanent, no names are shown on doors. You may need to read the sign hanging above it, or if locked, try knocking on the door (using the Simply Knock mod).

SafeAutoSaveLink to the mod's Wiki page. Exactly as it sounds.
Honed Metal -NPC Crafting and Enchanting servicesLink to the mod's Wiki page. Gives you both smithing AND enchanting options, allowing you to make custom requests from black smiths and enchanters. Allows you to role play without any crafting skills.

Install the 1.09 Hotfix

Dangerous Spell Comments RemovedLink to the mod's Wiki page. Exactly as it sounds.
Chasing the Dragon - Toxicity and AddictionLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Helps "limit" potion spam, for which I am fully guilty of myself

Be warned, high value potions will increase your toxicity by max 15%. These settings are configurable. Once you get to 100% toxicity, you loose all regen, though you can keep drinking potions. For each potion you drink, you risk becoming addicted.

Addiction has several stages.

  • Stage 1, gain 5% poison resistance. So long as you consume potions regularly, you are ok.
  • Stage 2-4, bad stuff happens. Either sleep it off, or visit a shrine. Just don't try to drink another potion to remove the depuffs…
Potions Animated (Flee while you drink)Link to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Helps (further) limit potion spam. When you drink a potion, you have to actually drink it. Allows you to move while drinking, but you can't chug 5 potions with an enemy about to hack you down and expect to get away with it.

Note: Requires FNIS in order to work

Join Dawnguard As a Vampire FixedLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Temporarily disabled to save esp.

Technically no required. If you want to roleplay a "good"/"reformed" vampire, then this allows you to.

FalskaarLink to the mod's Wiki page. New DLC addon with a new land and quests
WyrmstoothLink to the mod's Wiki page. If you happen to have a download of this mod kicking around, then it goes here. In general, when patching Falskaar, you get an option for Wyrmstooth too.
Wyrmstooth - Tweaks and EnhancementsLink to the mod's Wiki page. If you used Wyrmstooth.

Install options I used the Typo Fix and Notice Board options.

Enhanced Lighting for ENB-LITELink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Reinstall====
  • First Screen
    • Legendary (NOT Legendary + Falskaar + Wyrmstooth)
  • Optionals
    • Falskaar Patch (or Combined if you have Wyrmstooth)
  • Install
NARCLink to the mod's Wiki page. Optional Files (Not the Main Files)
  • Deadly Dragons
  • Falskaar
  • Requiem

Will patch this later.

Weapons and Armor FixesLink to the mod's Wiki page. =====Reinstall====

Follow Step installation, but also install Immersive Weapons patch

Redundant esp's to disable (due to KFR - Kyropty's Fixes Remade)

  • Weapons & Armor_TrueOrcish&DaedricWeapons.esp
  • Weapons & Armor_TrueWeaponLvlLists.esp
Better StealingLink to the mod's Wiki page. Only high value items are "tracked". Cheap stuff is generic enough that there is no way to prove you stole it from some particular person, and will not be flagged (random cups off a table for instance, as long as you were not seen, won't get a stolen flag).
Crime Bounty DecayLink to the mod's Wiki page. Bounty decreases over time while you are somewhere else. Defaults mean a pickpocketing attempt takes 4 days to be forgotten, and a murder takes 30 days. Decay rate is configurable in the MCM menu.
Dragon Soul RelinquishmentLink to the mod's Wiki page. When you reach the Grey Beards, there is an alter where you can cash in dragon souls for a wide range of buffs. These include skill points, HP, attack buffs, etc. This gives you a great place to spend extra dragon souls when you don't have any shouts to unlock anymore.
Boethiah for Good GuysLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Temp disabled to save esp.

From the Mod Page:

  • This mod allows you to complete Boethiah's quest without betraying a friend. When you're told to bring a friend to the altar, simply activate the altar yourself. Boethiah will recognized (and disdain) your noble heart, but will go ahead and provide a victim for you. The rest of the quest proceeds as normal.
Namira for Good GuysLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Temp disabled to save esp.

From the Mod Page:

  • This mod allows you to complete Namira's quest "The Taste of Death" without sacrificing a priest to Cannibals. When you're given the option to intimidate, bribe, or persuade Brother Verulus (the priest), you are now able to warn him. This starts of a quest to make a look-alike that is no more than a magical scarecrow! After creating the scarecrow, complete the quest like normal. Afterwards, return to the priest to trade in the Ring of Namira for a new, unique spell reward.
Innocence Lost AlternativeLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Temp disabled to save esp.

From the Mod Page:

  • Are you playing as a good hero in Skyrim and want to destroy the Dark Brotherhood, but you refuse to kill Grelod for Aventus, no matter how nasty she is? Well this mod allows you to report it to the guards for them to arrest her! However, she refuses to be taken in, and attacks the guard, forcing the guard to retaliate and kill her.
Blood on the Ice ReduxLink to the mod's Wiki page. From the Mod Page:
  • You are a true hero, the Dragonborn of legends. So when you first arrive to Windhelm and find out that a serial killer is on the loose... you just don't care. But... but that makes no sense!
  • Well, not any more. This mod allows the player to start the investigation BEFORE the Butcher strikes again.
  • Be aware though, If you don't act quickly the Butcher will kill again.
iWASM - Immersive Wait And Sleep MenuLink to the mod's Wiki page. Just looks nicer

Take Notes - Journal of the DragonbornLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Primarily a role playing mod. Journal your adventures, spice them up a little, and that becomes the story that you just played through.

It also helps to track what you are doing, and what your character build is. That way, if you come back to the character after 3-4 weeks, and have no idea what you are doing, this helps get you back into your character again.

Mfg ConsoleLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Helps with debugging. Hit the ~ key, and hit TAB. If this is any extra info, it pops up. If for example a door is floating in the air, you can find out what the mod is responsible. Or if you click on your horse, you can find out how much HP it has left after you accidentally hit it with a fireball.

A Matter of Time - A HUD clock widgetLink to the mod's Wiki page. ====Optional====

Gives you a handy customizable clock.

TelescopeLink to the mod's Wiki page. From the Mod Page:
  • Add's non combat/non Bow 'FOV' options for the Player in the guise of Lore Friendly craftable Telescopes with working zoom.

  • Keep in mind that with Deep Immersion, you will need to use Campfire - Complete Camping System to set up your own camp (adding fire pit, tent, etc yourself).

I picked the Deep Immersion options, planning to use Campfire to set up my camp. Same for the DLC optional file. Merge.

Abbreviation:

  • WeaponsArmorFixes_ImmersiveWeapons_Patch.esp
  • BetterQuestObjectives-CRFPatch.esp
  • BetterQuestObjectives-AlternateStartPatch.esp
  • Requiem - Explosive Bolts Visualized.esp

LOOT

LOOT has been taught how to handle Requiem, mostly. Can use it now.

  • Live Another life (and all related patches) needs to be just before Skyrim Unlocked
  • Skyrim Unlocked (and all related patches) needs to be at the very end

Next, go to UnmeiX's mods (RSE, KFR, and COR) and use the esp ordering he specifies (as a rough guide).

Finally, load up TES5Edit. It will probably throw an error saying a dependency is missing for an esp. This esp will probably be a patch (such as for Live Another Life). Fix your load order until patches are located behind the mods they patch and TES5Edit loads without problem. No mods are currently defined in this section within the Wiki.


2.N Patches

From Here on, just let the ESPs drop in as they are added/created.


For the first time setup, skip DynDOLOD and Real Shelter. do the rest, and make sure the game loads. Then go back, delete the Reqtificator patch and install them.

Stage 1:

  • Run SynDOLOD TexGen following STEP Instructions.

To run DynDOLOD with Open Cities, we need some custom steps. Stage2 part A

    • Generate DynDOLOD (UNchecked)
  • Select your quality option, click OK.
    • After DynDOLOD has finished, CLICK Exit, (NOT Save & Exit)
  • Navigate to: DynDOLOD folder --> Edit Scripts --> DynDOLOD
    • Make a copy of DynDOLOD_TES5.ini, append .backup to it
  • Open DynDOLOD_TES5.ini
    • Control - F --> warnmodfilename --> enter
      • Delete "open Cities Skyrim, " from the WarnModFileName=
    • find "skyrim tamriel"
      • Delete Everything under the [Skyrim Tamriel] section, leaving the heading intact.
  • Save the ini File.
  • Restore your Mod list (to before disabling Open Cities) using the "Restore backup" button
  • Restore your Plugins (to before disabling Open Cities) using the "Restore Backup" Button

    • Generate tree LOD (UNchecked)
    • Create texture atlas (UNchecked)
    • Generate DynDOLOD (CHECKED)

Continue installation as normal per STEP instructions.

ReqtificatorLink to the mod's Wiki page. Installation Instructions HERE

check the following settings BEFORE patching each time Reqtificator is run.

  • Other Settings Open
  • Merge Leveled Characters: (Checked)
  • Merge Leveled Items: (checked)
  • Add all Mods as Masters: (checked)
Real Shelter - Full ReleaseLink to the mod's Wiki page. The "Real" last mod, even though other mods keep saying they are the last.


Modify the version check to fix the wrong TES5Edit Error:

  • Right click mod --> Open in explorer --> R.S.Patcher
  • Open Note Pad. Use the ope dialogue box in note pad to open "RSPatcher.tes5pas"
    • If you click on the file instead of using Notepad open dialogue box, you can't edit the text
  • Cntl+f --> 3.1
  • Change to 3.2

Save. (I also changed the RSPatcher.pas file in the same way)


now build the patch as per the instructions on the Real Shealter mod page.


Notes from previous installs (and other user's comments)

  • Rain shading is not "perfect". it has a slight delay (250ms) that is noticeable, especially on a horse while at full speed.
  • Some users have reported the rain shading is radically different, and going into and out of rain changes how the weather looks considerably. I have not had a problem with this, please provide some screen shots if you do have this problem. The mod author's page has a few notes on how to potentially trouble shoot this.

Final house Keeping

Dropbox Files

REV 2.0 Alpha

Included are my ini files. Please look them over and compare them to your own. These settings will depend on how you installed Vividian ENB (so use the one generated by the Vividian install, don't just use the dropbox file).


A few tings I changed (I think) off the top of my head:

Enblocal.ini

[ENGINE]
ForceAnisotropicFiltering=true
MaxAnisotropy=8
ForceLodBias=false
LodBias=-0.33 // Lower Values for more detailed Textures at distance, -0,33 selected for Vividian Setup
EnableVSync=true
//false
AddDisplaySuperSamplingResolutions=false
VSyncSkipNumFrames=0


[LIMITER]
WaitBusyRenderer=false
EnableFPSLimit=false
FPSLimit=60.0

[ADAPTIVEQUALITY]
Enable=true
//false
Quality=0
DesiredFPS=60.0
//20


Skyrimprefs.ini


Post-Installation Configuration

Guess this is where any additional information goes. I will list bugs I have come across here.

Current Bugs

  • (2017 07 08) In doors, during the day, windows give a bit too much light into the interior. Need to find a way to balance this out.
