Requirements For STEP Patches

Each patch has different requirements and it should be decided now which patch to choose before going through all of STEP. This will also inform users of any additional patching that are necessary to download, since those instructions may not be in the STEP Guide.

If not installing all of STEP Core or Extended mods listed below then it is recommended to keep the this page open or bookmarked to see what mods will require patches to be downloaded and installed.

STEP Core Patch

  • NOTE: For all of the following requirements disregard any mod that does not have a plugin (.esp or .esm file). These are mostly texture replacer mods.

For users that plan to install all of STEP Core only, just follow the STEP Guide instructions and do not download any additional patches for conflicting STEP Core mods. The STEP Core Patch will cover all conflicts.

If installing part of STEP Core then the following mods are required to use the STEP Core Patch:
