SkyRem Guide Custom Settings

  • By: DrPharmDawg
  • Version: 5.4.0
  • UPDATE

MAIN FILE: SkyRem Custom Settings

Note: If you experience ILSs, you can try turning on the MemoryManager option in the SKSE/Plugins/EngineFixes.ini file included (part of SSE Engine Fixes).
Note: However, some have reported turning the MemoryManager option on results in random CTDs. I personally have it on and experience neither issue.

STEP 2 CHECK

  • REMINDER: Double check that all tagged mods have been appropriately extracted (
    BSA
    ), optimized (
    CAO
    ), ESLified (
    ESL
    ), compacted and ESLified (
    COMPACT
    ), ported (
    PORT
    ), and/or cleaned (
    CLEAN
    ).
VERIFY: Ensure your counts are as follows (if following the guide 100%).
- Mods: 66
- Plugins: 26 (ESMs = 7, ESPs = 7, ESMs + ESPs = 14, ESLs = 12)
LOOT: Run LOOT to sort your plugins.
TEST:
- Check your base user interfaces (journal, inventory, skills, etc.) all appear as intended.
- Load the user preset in the A Matter of Time MCM to ensure your HUD displays as intended.

- Now - go on a scenic tour of Skyrim, primarily checking out the major cities and maybe some ruins, etc.
- Run around and stop every now and then to look around to make sure things look OK.
