QUASIPC - Qwinn's Unified Automated Self Installing Patch Compendium

  • By: Qwinn
  • Version: 2.5.0
  • MERGE

MISC FILE: QUASIPC - Unified Patch Compendium v2_5_0

Install: Allow the FOMOD to make the selections; simply continue through the [Next] and [Install] buttons.

Merged Final

  • TOOL
Merge: Merge tagged files with zEdit. Move the Merged mod to the bottom of this Step, activate it, and disable the plugins via MO2's Merge Plugins Hide function. 


Part C: Dynamic Patches

LOOT

  • TOOL

Run LOOT one final time before creating the patches below. This time will require a few additional steps to ensure mods are where they need to be to work properly (and be patched easier). Launch LOOT in MO2 and adjust the Metadata as follows:

1. Find SkyRem - Grace.esp in the right pane and click the [...] to the right and select [Edit Metadata].
2. In the window that appears, click [Load After] and under Filename enter Alternate Start - Live Another Life.esp. Click [Save] (disk icon) to the right.

Adjusting Metadata with LOOT in this way can help keep mods in the right place any time you use LOOT. Using Load After is good especially to ensure a specific mod loads after another specific mod, while using the mod groups (such as High Priority Overrides) is good for keeping mods in a more generalized location of your Load Order.

Once you are done making adjustments to Metadata, [Sort] as normal, [Apply], and [Exit] LOOT.

Warning-Logo.png Warning: Do not use LOOT past this point. If you do, ensure that the following mods are at the bottom of your load (right pane) in the order provided.
