Introduction and Summary

Welcome to Lexy's: Legacy of The Dragonborn Special Edition: the Special Edition version of my popular co-authored SRLE Extended Legacy of The Dragonborn. It is designed to be a full guide, taking you from a completely vanilla Skyrim SE experience to a fully modified game in all facets.

This guide is currently a Beta version, best suited for Testers and Experienced Modders.

A little chat:

NOTE: This guide WILL take time to install and will require quite a bit of space. This guide also involves some more advanced modding concepts. I definitely suggest reading the full guide first and acquainting yourself with some of the tools you'll be using. Remember the final destination is to PLAY the game and enjoy it. Expect to take several sessions to get it all done from start to finish.

Please do not hesitate to come back to the forum topic - or the STEP forums in general - and ask questions and make suggestions. If there's ANYTHING you're not 100% sure of, please come in and ask us. I (Nozzer66), (Darth_mathias), (DarkladyLexy) and several other people with some experience will help to the best of our abilities.

The Guide has been bench-marked and is currently using approximately Max 4.7GB on Darth's and Lexy's system during the Cart Ride to Helgen.

With that said: It's time to get into the wonderful world of Skyrim Modding. We hope you'll find it pleasant.

    - This mod is optional. This is an addition considered useful to the setup, but might be more of a personal preference.
  • HQ
    - This mod is intended for users looking for a High-Quality visual experience who have a system able to display it properly. This doesn't necessarily mean it should be avoided at all cost by low-end system users, but simply that the performance hit might not be worth the visuals improvements on weaker machines.
  • Patch Central

Prerequisites

Info-Logo.png      Notice:DON'T SKIP THIS PART

Before we start modding Skyrim SE we need to perform few steps to the game and set up some tools to work with during this adventure. You can find all the information on how to do this on this page -> Prerequisites Page. Do not skip this step.

Mod Installation Advice

Best advice when installing Lexy's: Legacy of The Dragonborn Special Edition is to test after each section, if you CTD or ILS after a section then you know something needs adjusting.

When installing mods it recommended to do the following:

Main Files + Updates + Hotfixes Install as one mod. (e.g Merge together in Mod Organizer 2)
Optional Files - Install as separate mod in MO2.
Miscellaneous files - Install as separate mod in MO2.
Patches - Install as separate mod in MO2.

A Note On Extracting BSA's

This guide currently recommends Only extracting BSA's If they are distributed with a dummy plugin, or are part of a merge to reduce plugin count.

To extract a BSA Archive we will be utilizing Mod Organizer 2 inbuilt BSA Extractor Plugin.

When extracting a BSA perform the following:

  1. Click the Spanner and screwdriver icon in the top left hand corner of Mod Organizer.
  2. Click the Plugins tab.
  3. Locate BSA Extractor (should be the top one).
  4. In the right side panel double click Enabled and set to TRUE.
  5. Install the mod during installation the mods BSA should be automatically extracted.
  6. Once installation is complete reset BSA Extractor back to FALSE.

A Note about Converting Old Plugins

Throughout the guide, there are a few plugins which are still using the old Form format from classic Skyrim. These plugins must be properly converted in the CK for Skyrim SE. Even though some of these mods are SE mods, this can sometimes result from creating plugins in xEdit and never running them through the CK. We will handle these issues now so that our patching, at the end of the guide, comes out clean.

Mods are tagged throughout the guide which require conversion. The instructions for converting these plugins are found below. Users can refer back to them as needed when running across the tag, or return here before starting the patching. There will be a warning to remind users to complete this step. The tag looks like so:

Converted

Resaving a plugin in the CK

Converting plugins is the simple part of the process. The basis of how this is down is below. I will provide more specifics for plugins where necessary.

  1. Ensure the Overwrite folder is empty.
  2. Run the CK from the executable drop-down menu.
  3. Select the File menu and choose [Data...].
  4. Find the plugin* to be converted, and select [Set as Active File]. *(A quick way to do this is to type the first letter of the ESP's name until it appears in the window.)
  5. Note the Parent Masters listed and ensure they are checked (double-click the plugin listing to check it).
  6. Click [OK] and allow the CK to load.
  7. Once complete, save the plug (icon on toolbar or File > Save).
  8. Close the CK and allow it to sit for a moment.
  9. More often than not, the CK will hang when closing. Click the close button a few times and Windows will allow you to force close it.
  10. The newly saved plugin will be automatically save over the older non-converted version.

When Converting mods through the Creation Kit some will have masters that are esps but the Creation Kit requires these to be esms or flagged as esms. This can be achieved through a process called 'esmifiying' and is done using Wrye Bash:

  1. Open Wrye Bash
  2. Right click on the esp you wish to esmify.
  3. From the menu you should notice esmify self left click on it
  4. Exit Wrye Bash
  5. Close and Reopen Mod Organizer 2 to refresh it.
  6. Now you can open and save the esp you wish to convert in the Creation Kit.

Once the esp is converted you will need to re-espifiy the master through Wrye Bash:

  1. Open Wrye Bash
  2. Right click on the esp you esmifyed above.
  3. From the menu you should notice espifiy self left click on it.
  4. Exit Wrye Bash.
  5. Close and Reopen Mod Organizer 2 to refresh it.

Verifying the plugin with xEdit

The more terrifying part of converting plugins for most users will be giving it a checkup using SSEEdit (xEdit). This process is only daunting for users who are newbies to xEdit, itself. Once users learn xEdit a bit they start to realize it's a fairly easy to use program, which just so happens to grant the user a lot of power.

  1. Run SSEEdit from the executable drop-down menu.
  2. Right-click in the plugin pane and choose [Select None].
  3. Double-click on the new plug saved from the steps above and allow xEdit to load until the log says, "Background Loader: finished".
  4. Right-click on the last plugin in the left pane (it should be the new plugin), and select [Check for Errors].
  5. The check should come back clean reading, "All done!". If there are errors, the user will have to take steps to correct them before continuing to the next step.
  6. Right-click on the plugin again and choose, [Sort Masters].
  7. The last step is to clean the plugin as we did for the DLCs above.
  8. Close xEdit and be sure the plugin is checked in the saving prompt.

SSE Nif Optimizer

Throughout the guide, there are a few mods that will be downloaded from classic Skyrim containing meshes using the older format. These meshes must be properly converted using SSE Nif Optimizer for Skyrim Special Edition:

I suggest you consult this Video by Dirty Weasel Media on how best to use SSE Nif Optimizer.

No longer will the poor courier simply be dragged from his mystery cell and dropped in front of the player to make his deliveries. Thus is born the Provincial Courier Service.

[Bring Out Your Dead]

CORE
Bring Out Your Dead - v4.0.3 - by Arthmoor

Files to download :

  • MAIN FILES - Bring Out Your Dead

Special Installation: Do not install the following file(s) and/or folder(s):

  • Bring Out Your Dead - Legendary Edition.txt

Mod Notes: This mod is a simple yet immersive mod which expands on the number of graves given to the unique NPCs in areas of the game that don't currently have them. Solitude, Windhelm, Whiterun, Riften, and Markarth all have a Hall of the Dead that contains coffins and urns for various unique NPCs who live there. Their items are transferred to their assigned coffin when they die. The smaller cities of Falkreath, Morthal, Dawnstar, and Winterhold do not have these facilities, and neither do the other smaller villages and towns. NPCs living on farms outside the major hold capitols don't get buried in their Hall of the Dead either. This mod aims to correct this and provide for more uniform handling of everyone's dead. Falkreath and Morthal both have graveyards already and have been expanded slightly to hold more. Dawnstar, Winterhold, and the smaller villages all have space set aside for new graveyards. NPCs living on farms immediately outside the 5 major hold capitols will be given appropriate burial space in the Hall of the Dead for their city if they don't already have it.

Mod Notes: This mods main objective is to greatly improve the Artificial Intelligence (AI) of friendly NPCs (citizens) in order to make them act and react like true humans in relation to an aggressor, thereby increasing in-game immersion. Concretely, this plugin deeply overhauls the AI used by NPCs citizens when they are in a “standard state” and in a “combat state”. The “alert state” is left untouched.
