CTD when using the bed in Alternate Start

Recommended Posts



I got the game working with some basic mods, added some more mods and that worked well too. Played a bit of the main story and got to level 3.  Then I added a few more, and something seems to have broken. The issues I'm having currently:


-CTD when trying to use the bed in Alternate Start. Tried several different starts, none work. 

-CTD when loading a previous (modded) save.


What I *can* do is do the cell part of the Alternate Start. I've tried disabling all mods except Alternate Start, but get the same issue. At first, the only (well, still a pretty major) issue was going outdoors. I could load up saves that were inside, such as inside Proudspire Manor, but when attempting to enter Solitude, I got a CTD. Currently however, nothing works except starting in the cell. I have no warnings or errors in LOOT, or in MO2. Since I got the CTD I've also done cleaning with SSEEdit Quick Auto Clean, but that has made no difference.


This is my load order from LOOT:

I'd be very grateful for any help that can solve this! At this point, I don't even mind about losing my saves, as long as I can start a new game and it works smoothly. Thanks!


Edit: The first thing I tried was to remove the mods I installed prior to the issue starting, but that made no difference.

Ok, you may have need for remake your loadorder.

Pro tip.

Take this mod and put it under the wheel on your car. And dont look back.

 20 14     AP Skyrim SE.esp

Replace it whit Sexlab, works way better in all matters. You already have it installed.

But you MUST start one new game.


You also need to download LOOT and let it sort your loadorder.

What modding tool do you use?

So you think the issue is with the loadorder? I have and use LOOT, which is where I got the order in the OP from. I've also tried manually putting Alternate Start last (LOOT places it where it is right now) as Google suggested that might be causing issues. My modding tool is MO2.


Also, not sure if just a coincidence but I removed  20 14  AP Skyrim SE.esp and now the game CTDs on startup. ?

Did you remove the esp or the whole mod?


Tell me when did this mod become one master?

6  6     3DNPC.esp

I may have missed something but it should not be there at all. LOOT should not place it there at all.

You seems to use MO2 did you sort your left side to?


Several of your mods do use DLL files, have you maken sure that they are the latest Steam version of SkyrimSE?


When you use the statue in alternate start cellar you activate one trigger in the game, there is one old issue and some mods dont respond well to it.


One more thing, have you started Skyrim unmodded from inside Steam 1 time?
