i play with ineed, Frostfall, Hunterborn + Hunting in Skyrim, Imperious, Apocalypse.. its all in the Override section and i had no issues with them so far

@jaeos i usually have my PCs custom built, but when my previous one died, i had to get a quick replacement (placeholder until i can get a new one) so i got a 2nd-hand meanwhile.. and while it does work "fine" for my job (low poly 3D design/animation) its not quite for this level of gaming. in this current list, it gets major FPS drop in Whiterun. its only temporary while i shop around and get my new beast made :P

Using a work computer for games?? SACRILEGE!!!! Probably why i have every computer i've built still in the house... And a few leftover parts.. No honey that one video card was 1200, but it was on sale buy one get one free..🤣 i went with an AMD chip this round. Intel (yes by all benchmarks does better at gaming) was 5x higher for just a sliver better performance.

Yep.

 

Best are the permissions he gave. I can use any of his textures to create my own pack as long as i name him. So Whiterun and Windhelm will get a smaller pack (aka only the stuff i like) in the future. I havn't seen any rough wood on furniture and coaches for some time so that already seems to be fixed (and i don't have to manually check hundreds of files).

 

For Luxor (aka 'Skyrim HD') i got to create a batch to delete redundant files. That should save quite some space on the drive.

Do you have 'Dibella's Sisterhood' installed? One of the travelling sisters uses that area.

I do have Dibella's Sisterhood, however there is also a sister at the Dibella shrine on the way to Markarth, and I had no problem saving next to her and others out in the wilderness.  The only trouble I had next to her was that there was also a random Lv 50 Daedra Lord wielding Masamune and out for my blood.  Fortunately on one of the retries of killing him, Neisa trapped him in a corner and F***ed him up.  And he showed up immediately after a dragon attack.  It's hard being beautiful, everyone wants that booty...

I was having some script lag in blackreach and did some googling and found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/skyrimmods/comments/22rbk5/whats_the_best_papyrus_tweaks_to_use/cgq4qk0/ 

 

While it was 6 years ago and therefore definitely for LE, it worked for me.

 

I left fPostLoadUpdateTimeMS=2000.0 (instead of the reccomended 500), because I think that is the new standard for SE.

Thanks for your work that makes skyrim excellent, nothing like what I've played so far. But I have the usual black face of vampires. I went to Sybille Stentor to check why even in the past I had this bug, I thought it was some mod that I haven't installed now. I have the patches you recommended (one for the black face) but .... any suggestions?

She should look more like this:

  Reveal hidden contents

Since I am a very beginner I just clicked on "sort" and Loot did the rest. Now it's trouble. However, I will manually order the upload again as your guide says.
I had this and obviously this remained after loot

That is what happens when you use Loot...

 

Post #3 rule #1

I used it now by accident, damn me. Could you kindly post the upload order so that you set it manually since many mods have no plugins and others have different plugin names? Or send me to hell :)
I renew the compliments for your guide

get Dibella Defender, it can be tweaked so you can have your armor on and get the armor of dibella. or you can buff tthe armor of dibella and the weapons and run around with dibellian bow, arrows, daggers, sword and shield. It's tattoos put on your skin so you will need Slave Tats as well.

If you have better vampires plus pandorable plus Milfs and Gilfs (it's called something different in the guide but thats what it installs as) you must make sure BOTH the esp/esm for better vampire is below pandorable, if not.. well.. you get the black face. Funny thing is, in mine stentor has black face none of the others do. i have not gone file digging to find the reference in whatever other mod and delete her reference from the mod i want. It's just lack of that thing most people have.. PATIENCE> yeah, that stuff. Mine ran out in about 1995.. Have not found a viable source for it yet 🤣.

You have 2 ways of doing it. one. disable all and sort them manually. then activate them when you get them into the right order. 2. (i'm assuming you downloaded the files in order except possibly the lovers lab mods. but (as long as you didn't delete them for space) uninstall ALL the mods. on the downloads tab on the right. sort by filetime. (if you downloaded multiple mods at the same time the smaller ones will finish first, so be careful doing it this way) and reinstall them all, then they are sorted by when you downloaded them. If you have not run xedit and cleaned your bethesda provided DLC here is a .7zip of it It's all of the DLC and update in one file

DLC-Cleaned.7z

look on the left and right see how they almost exactly match,, so your filetime and mod list are really close to the same

@PariahOh Sybille has blackface for me too, but it's only her. She's literally the only person in Skyrim that has it. Other vampires are fine. It's weird, but since I'm only in that room like twice per playthrough I can't be arsed to figure out what's going on.

 

Doom Eternal has basically taken over my life, but I'm eager to check out the newest updates when I can. As always, thanks much @Aylis

Better Vampires and Pandorables are fighting each other. I'm not usally one to care about her since like you i see her 3-4 times an entire game. But since @PariahOh had the problem and asked, i went and found the right load order for them.

For some reason she is listed as a dawnguard npc, not a base game npc vampire. i dunno why but here is the way to sort them to look like aylis screenshot

ps ignore the jordis replacer you see at the bottm.. it's not on the list. neither is deadlier serana

EDIT: and apparently neither is better vampires on the new list...

This has caused some problems to me in the past too.

 

First steps for troubleshooting:

Step 1: Rerun FNIS (fixes a lot of the problems you usually have)

Step 2: Deactivate DynDOLOD (makes sure it is not the landscape/trees)

 

If that doesn't help it's digging though the files...

Found out the problem... turns out I had the SKYRIM version of FNIS installed, not the SE version. Oops...

Thanks for the tips and files. I didn't answer before because I'm working on everything, I installed everything from 0 again because I had CTD at the loading screen after installing #Final files and patches. Now I'm in the LL phase. Tried the game and it works quite well except for 20 fps (too bad for i7-7700HQ, 16GB Ram and GeForce 1050Ti?).
I continue the work and pray.

 

PS: if I want to install: AddItemMenu e Multiple Followers Framework..... where is better in load order?

 

And why not: Naked Dungeons SE 2.0.1 and Deviously Cursed Loot SE BETA 2 8.4

I am using Nether's Follower Framework, as it is currently maintained and has a rich feature set, and so far has been working quite well compatibility wise. https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/18076

 

I ended up putting it in Final above the DynDOLOD entries, but below the WBODY files in the original list. The author of NFF suggested the end of the load order (he recommended LOOT too, but that part I will always ignore) but i always end with DynDOLOD, so I put it above that and so far no complaints.

Something else that might be of interest.

I'll wait with this one 'til it is out of Beta.

Nah, those work fine together.

 

It is. Check 'Override'.

 

Btw. do you mind if i add the file for the cleaned DLC to the 'files section'?

Ouch. 

 

Some OA link to older versions without mentioning it. I fell for that often enough.

A 1050TI is on the lower end of the spectrum. If you want higher FPS thats the place where i'd start improving the system. With the exception of the mountains and textures for skin/pelt, use 2k as much as possible.

 

Don't know those two, propably 'Override'.

 

Both not my cup of tea. If 'Dibella Sisterhood' wouldn't require it (for whatever reason) i'd gladly remove 'Devious Devices' from the list.
