Initial-Release Changes (Implemented with the 0.3.0b release)

Mods

C - Extenders
D - Fixes
E - Interface
F - Conflicting Graphics
This mod has been removed from STEP after some personal discussion with Starac (the author). Starac's work is now being using in a Skyrim total conversion project called Enderal. Starac does not support the use of the torrents which have been available for his SRO textures. For STEP to come into line with Starac's choices and wishes, we have dropped his work from STEP since we too have been pointing users to a torrent. Skyrim Realistic Overhaul will be replaced by a few mods, the main one for landscapes being Skyrim HD. The other textures SRO was providing will be compared and evaluated over time and will be replaced with each new STEP release.

16 Sep
  • Dual Sheath Redux
    • Updated installation instructions for v1.7 release.
    • It is no longer necessary to add the -NOBOSS argument. Please remember to run FNIS after updating.
16 Oct
23 Nov
  • ENBoost
    • Updated instructions to delete iPresentInterval from Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini. It should remain set to its default, iPresentInterval=1.
      • Previously, STEP erroneously recommended to set iPresentInterval=0 in SkyrimPrefs.ini.
    • Updated instructions to set [MEMORY] parameters manually. Using AutodetectVideoMemorySize=true is unreliable for some users which causes more problems than ENBoost solves. Setting these parameters manually is the only solution.
4 Dec
  • ENBoost
    • Updated instructions to ADD iPresentInterval=1 toSkyrim.ini under [Display] section and DELETE that line from SkyrimPrefs.ini.
11 Dec
14 Dec
  • Updated Dawnguard, Hearthfire, & Dragonborn notes to reflect updated TESEdit cleaning instructions with regard to official content (Update.esm and the DLC plugins). The instructions assumed that MO manages these 'mods', but new version of MO does not manage them, so they never get saved to MO:Overwrite. Instead, they overwrite the vanilla versions, as is the default behavior when TESEdit is launched outside of MO.
18 Jan
22 Jan
  • Updated AMD driver Settings section of the guide to point to the AMD CCC Guide itself to reduce redundancy, since that guide is already very compact.
24 Jan
  • Converted INI Tweaks chapters to transclude relevant entries within Skyrim INIs Guide.
14 Feb
18 Mar
20 Mar
  • Skyrim Performance Monitor
    • Updated instructions as they indicated erroneously to launch SPM through MO, when it is actually SPM that should launch MO.
19 May
  • SkyUI
    • Removed detailed instructions, since updates to Mod Organizer's external fomod installer have rendered them obsolete.
17 June
  • LOOT
    • Updated with the fact that LOOT is auto-detected by Mod Organizer
    • Moved info about using LOOT with multiple games into the proper format.
    • Added link to the LOOT Meta Rule Instructions
    • Added notice about --single-process argument fix for users who may experience a blank window at startup.
19 June
  • TES5Edit
    • Changed download link to Github location for the latest release.
    • Moved links to the manuals and instructions to the Links.
    • Added instruction to extract the archive to desired location.
  • ENBoost
    • Fixed download link.
    • Added notice on how to find Total Available Graphics Memory.
20 June

  • (23 Nov) Updated AMD and Nvidia driver settings to reflect proper vsync settings.
  • (14 Dec) Updated TESEdit cleaning instructions with regard to official content (Update.esm and the DLC plugins). The instructions assumed that MO manages these 'mods', but new version of MO does not manage them, so they never get saved to MO:Overwrite. Instead, they overwrite the vanilla versions, as is the default behavior when TESEdit is launched outside of MO.
