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. If you are looking for an easier beginners guide to learn the basics of Mod Organizer 2 check out the TUCOGUIDE by ponurymazepa.

Special Thanks to PheonixSunstar001 for creating an awesome video series showing the installation of this guide you can check it out Here

A Little Chat

NOTE: This guide WILL take time to install and will require quite a bit of space (currently Approx. 100GB not including Skyrim itself). 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.

This is not your father's Skyrim kids. Be warned. It is admittedly more difficult, especially up to around level 30, levels off, then gets a little more difficult again 50+. Unless you are an extremely experienced solo player, followers will be required and some experienced solo players have adopted a follower or two after playing this mod list. You will want a few followers anyway to carry all that LotD Museum stuff around.

You must pay attention and follow the instructions to the letter. 2% of errors are a rare mistake made by Lexy (quickly corrected). The other 98% of the issues are user error. It is almost imperative that you have at least have some knowledge of MO2, LOOT, FNIS, CK conversion, xEdit, zMerge, Wrye Bash, Mator Smash, zEdit, xLodGen, and DynDOLOD prior to starting the guide. You can use the mod list as a base and remove or add to it. However, it is strongly advised that you install the entire guide and playtest and ensure stability before adding or removing anything.

This guide is meticulously maintained and frequently updated. It is very stable and is more similar to Requiem in scope since the recent OMEGA and Experience mod inclusions. If you finish the guide and the game doesn't work, you did something wrong.

You can follow the guide from its location here on the STEP or the new SE Nexus version which runs a couple of days behind. There is a Discord Community that has an unwritten rule of tolerance towards those new to modding (within reason) but self-help is preferred and acknowledged. The Discord is friendly, helpful, and has a knowledgeable staff. Link: Discord

As it is frequently updated, you will, at some point, have to stop modding it and just play or you will be caught up in a never-ending loop of restarting new characters.

It is demanding on hardware. You can use it though if you know your computer system, are smart about what texture resolutions you use, how many of them you use, and scale back some of the settings of or not use xLodGen, DynDOLOD, and/or ENB at all.

The Guide has been benchmarked 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.

Prerequisites - This is where we install Skyrim and a few required TOOLS

Warning-Logo.png Warning: DON'T SKIP THIS PART WE NEED TO SETUP THE GAME AND SOME TOOLS BEFORE WE CAN START THIS ADVENTURE

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

The best advice when installing Lexy's: Legacy of The Dragonborn Special Edition is to just build the guide and don't run LOOT until you reach the Finishing Line this will save confusion over sorted errors that will be fixed by the end.

When installing mods it recommended to do the following:

Main Files - Install as one mod. If a mod page has more then one main file install each Main File as a separate mod.
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.


Note for special instructions sections regarding deleting or not installing specific textures, meshes or other files.

When you see anything that instructs to remove file/s from a mod with a * at the end, example: \helgen reborn.esp\*.tga this means ALL files in this folder with that extension/format should be deleted or not installed if the instructions tell you to do so.

A Note On Extracting BSA Files

This guide currently recommends only extracting BSA files if they are distributed with a dummy plugin, or are part of a merge.

To extract a BSA we will be utilizing Mod Organizer 2's inbuilt BSA Extractor plugin:

  1. Click the spanner and screwdriver icon in the top-left corner of Mod Organizer.
  2. Click the 'Plugins' tab.
  3. Locate BSA Extractor.
  4. In the right side panel double click Enabled and set to True.
  5. Install the mod as normal. During installation you will be prompted to extract the BSA, click Yes.
  6. Once installation is complete reset BSA Extractor back to False.

A Note On Converting Old Plugins

Throughout the guide, there are a few plugins using the old form 43. These plugins must be converted in the Creation Kit (CK) to work in this guide.

Mods that require converting will show this tag:
Convert

Note: Some of these plugins are SSE mods (the author has not run them through the new CK).


When Converting mods through the Creation Kit some will have masters that are esps but the CK requires these to be esms or flagged as esms. This can be achieved through a process called 'esmifiying' and is done using Wrye Bash. Therefore:
Scenario A - Plugin doesn't have any masters that need 'esmifying'
Scenario B - Plugin does have masters that need 'esmifying'

Step 1 - Scenario A: (Use this method if you have SSE Creation Kit Fixes installed)

  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 saved over the older non-converted version.

Step 1 - Scenario B: (Use this method if you DON'T have SSE Creation Kit Fixes installed)

  1. Open Wrye Bash.
  2. Right click on the esp you wish to esmify.
  3. From the menu click esmify self.
  4. Exit Wrye Bash.
  5. Close and Reopen Mod Organizer 2 to refresh it.
  6. Now follow instructions for Scenario A.
  7. Once the esp is converted you will need to 'espifiy' the master through Wrye Bash.
  8. Open Wrye Bash.
  9. Right click on the esp you esmifyed above.
  10. From the menu you should notice espifiy self left click on it.
  11. Exit Wrye Bash.
  12. Close and Reopen Mod Organizer 2 to refresh it.


Step 2: Verifying the plugin with xEdit

  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.

Cathedral Assets Optimizer

Throughout the guide, there are a few mods that will be downloaded for classic Skyrim containing meshes using an older format. These mod must be processed using Cathedral Assets Optimizer to work with Skyrim Special Edition.

Mods that require converting will show this tag:
CAO
General Use
Launch the tool outside of your mod manager (make sure your Mod Manager is closed).
Click Open Directory and navigate to the folder requiring conversion or optimization then select the following Options:

Even if it would be a meaningless encounter, one should still expect a living breathing NPC that takes part in the world to have some place to work at and call home. 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.

Legacy of the Dragonborn SSE - v4.1.6 - by icecreamassassin

Files to download :

  • MAIN FILES - Legacy of the Dragonborn SSE
  • UPDATE FILES - Legacy of the Dragonborn Update

Mod Notes: The Legacy of the Dragonborn is steeped in prophecy, myth, legend, and history itself. Explore forgotten lore and uncover the lost relics of the 7 Dragonborn of the bygone eras of Tamriel. From those merely mentioned in the title to those who wielded the power of the voice, many legendary and influential people held the title of “Dragonborn” and they all link to the lost covenant of Akatosh.

“Legacy of the Dragonborn” is a MASSIVE addition which will change the way you play Skyrim forever. Meet the curator Auryen Morellus at the museum in Solitude and he will help guide you in your quest to gather the many relics of Tamriel's history as well as provide a fully equipped player home and many many more quests as well. As you display relics you will unlock more history and lore as you encounter new challenges, meet new NPCs and embark to establish your own guild, "The Explorer's Society".

Aim to explore and discover lost places, artefacts, and history, build the guild house from the ground up as the guild master, then recruit new members, each with their own unique backstories and special guild functions. Explore ruins and excavate relic fragments to re-assemble into artefacts to display in the museum. Set up a guild store with the quartermaster and much more.

  • Problem: Wrye Bash sometime spews out an error on Unique Border Gates All - Point The Way - Patch when creating the Bash Patch.
  • Solution: Load and resave UniqueBorderGates-All-PointTheWay.esp in the Creation Kit this should stop it.

Mod Notes: Unique Border Gates redesigns the border crossings of Cyrodill, Hammerfell and Morrowind by adding new, unique and immersive gates. No two are alike and I believe the design reflects the area well.
