Skyrim SE for Beginners - V 3.1.8 (3BBB / HDT-SMP / HPH)

Recommended Posts

Uploaded an update for SSEB - Predone bodyslides for 'Wrong Body'Done

 

The morphs of some armors still don't work (i'd really need a bodyslide preset for that). But the new set is so close to 'Wrong Body' that we get away without having one.

 

I tried for two days to follow this guide to make them better, but i'm stuck at #7 and, no matter what i tried, the body clipped through. So i kept the original files.

Spoiler
  1. Install BodySlide and Outfit Studio.
  2. Copy your favorite body mesh to "Data\CalienteTools\BodySlide", this ones: femalebody_0.nif and femalebody_1.nif.
  3. Copy the desired armor meshes too, for example: CuirassReinforced_0.nif and CuirassReinforced_1.nif.
  4. Run OutfitStudio, File -> New Project.
  5. From File -> Browse, select femalebody_0.nif -> Next.
  6. In Outfit/Mesh select From File -> Browse -> Select CuirassReinforced_0.nif  -> Finish.
  7. Now you can edit the armor mesh at will.
  8. When you are done -> File -> Export -> To NIF and select CuirassReinforced_0.nif.
  9. Copy the edited CuirassReinforced_0.nif to its original folder.
  10. Then do the same with CuirassReinforced_1.nif, this time with femalebody_1.nif as base.
  11. Done!

 

 

Going through all the bodyslides becomes a chore...

The mod 'Hjertesten Hall - Player Home and Settlement (WIP)' looks nice.

 

But i'll wait a bit for it to mature before i take a closer look. For some of you it already could be interesting...

It seems like I'm getting dark face bug on some npcs for the high poly head mod. Is there a fix to it? Or any tutorial on how I can make all npc use high poly head?

Check the entry in 'Troubleshooting'.

 

If you follow the guide almost all NPC should already use HPH. The ones i left out wouldn't improve that much by adding another mod.

Some nord npcs mainly males(Didn't find any females having this issue) are getting Black face textures, so I used Face discoloration fix but it replaces the face with vanilla ones and they don't suit with the Tempered Skins for Males. Using Interesting NPCs 3DNPC SE mod outside of the this guide but I think Natural Skin Tones might be causing this issue. I sorted out my LO on the left panel from bottom-top approach as per the right panel but still the problem is there.

I have the same issue (only nord males) and i don't use Natural Skin Tones, i'm still searching what might cause this.

 

Edit - Fixed : i use High Poly NPC Overhaul - Skyrim Special Edition 2.04 and it had to come later in load order

DO NOT USE multiple mods modifying same npcs, doesn't matter if they modify different part of those npcs.

One method you can try is to get the id of those black face npc (open console and click on that npc) and search that id in xEdit and see what mod modify that npc and tinker with load order.

Or download high poly patch for that mod.

 

Found this skse mod Alternate Conversation Camera. I think this complement improved camera well, make conversion a bit more cinematic. To make it work with improved camera, change the ini setting in Improved Camera like so

Quote

Switched the setting from "bSwitchPOVMatchCameraRotX=1" to "bSwitchPOVMatchCameraRotX=0" (in improved camera .ini ) which solved the problem of camera skipping to sky/ground.

 

Also I skim through the comment of that mod and someone said that the expression function from "PC Head Tracking and Voice Type" does not work with this mod. Can someone confirm this? I'm don't know how to test this function.

because PC Head Tracking and Voice Type Patch is found under Optional Files for MFGfix. 

Thanks, I would not have known otherwise.

Updated my entertainment center setup. Still getting ~50 FPS (capped at 60) on the overworld in 4K or 1080p. Switch to Doom Eternal? 120 FPS in 4K.

 

This ****ing game, man. It's like it's ten years old or something.



Out of curiosity, how do manage to put it on 4k? I mean, i know how in any normal game, but how do you do it with SKSE? since its a virtual installation and all of that

just for curiosity's sake, has anyone tried modding the Game Pass version of SE on PC? Is it basically the xbox version on PC or the same as Steam?

AFAIK these games go into protected folders, that complicates things. And there is no SKSE support for it

"SKSE cannot support any potential Windows Store release of Skyrim. Windows Store applications are locked down similarly to consoles and do not allow the APIs necessary for script extenders to work." (statement available in the official skse website).

 

It's simply not worth it. A Steam install will be better and probably already acquired if the user has a PC and interest in playing Skyrim.

I'm failing to see the link between being a virtual installation, SKSE and the resolution. You set the resolution in the config files of the game (or force it through the GPU control panel), then you launch the game as usual through MO2 and if it was properly configured it will display the selected resolution.

Although they are not really my cup of tea, i'll be adding 'Tattoos and Warpaints' as they might be useful for some builds.

Note that in Overlay pack 3 there's a tattoo that *can* cause a CTD, which after a lot of troubleshooting I narrowed it down to that mod. Thankfully there's a patch in the downloads for that. It's just hard to figure out when it happens while scrolling rapidly through your overlays and you just finished downloading and installing 500 mods.

i have a question with EmberXD, i have installed the mod according to the guide, do we need to select any options preceding the compatability patches for e.g. the one below (fire magicks,torches,forges etc, do we leave it blank?) sorry to bother ><'

Not sure if this is the place to ask, but I'm having trouble with cum effects showing up. I have it turned on in SexLab and its time to show cranked up to max and I never see any. I even installed SLACS the other day to see if that would make a difference and even tried forcing it on characters and nothing shows. NPCs sometimes make comments because the cum seems to be applied but not visible. Does SexLab cum take up a certain armor slot or overlay or something? What could possibly interfere with it?

@Just Don't

Thanks. That is a very interesting piece of information about the 'Windows Store' (and another reason to avoid it).

 

 

@dumbcow

Thanks. Added a comment for that.

 

 

@ralchemilla

How about you decide that for yourself? Only you know how powerful your system is.

 

 

@Sasquatcher

You've seen the entry in 'Troubleshooting', right?

 

It also shows up on armors and uses no slot as it is an overlay (aka applied like a tattoo or warpaint).

Oh, I see, this has never happened to me before in all the times I've set up SexLab, I'll have to try that, thanks.

I found that one irritating. Especially when the camera randomly changed the orientation when the conversation was finished.

You haven't changed the setting in improved camera. You must make the below change to solve orientation problem.

Quote

Switched the setting from "bSwitchPOVMatchCameraRotX=1" to "bSwitchPOVMatchCameraRotX=0" (in improved camera .ini ) which solved the problem of camera skipping to sky/ground.

 

I notice there is a patch for JK drunken huntsman and Immersive wench, you may want to rerun jk collection patch.

Interesting little gem for those who like to run with multiple armor sets but doesn't want to have to carry it all at the same time: Player Equipment Manager

 

Also a side note, the following mods can have their IDs compacted and flagged esl, and still work without a hitch: J's Armored Circlets, J's Barenziah SE, and Left Hand Rings.

@Jessica_Degurechaff

Yep, hadn't updated the entry yet. Fixed

I also found a bark texture that looks similar to the one found in my area, so it looks more 'natural' to me.

I'll add the two additional ones so you can decide which one you prefer.

 

 

The next thing is the mod Pine Branches Redone. I finally found better branches that actually work.
