Change master from .esp to .esl


Recommended Posts

Hello,
i have changed a weapon mod from an esp to an esl with the creation kit. That wasn't hard either.

For this mod there is an addon, which fetches the main mod as master file. How can I change that not the esp but the esl is used as master?

ok here is a question for you. which is the file order you want?

1

Master.esp (esl)

Slave.esp

or

2

Master.esl (esl)

Slave.esp

or

3

Master.esp (esl)

Slave.esl

or

4

Master.esl (esl)

Slave.esl

 

because some are recommended, while other are discouraged (they still work)

or did I get your idea wrong

1st master (esl)
2nd slave (esl)
I think it's for the best.

ok so the easiest way to do this.

get a copy of FO4Edit

open both files using it (after making sure that they are in the order that you want them in)

 

in the master file

the way I do this is to right click on a ID and "Copy As Override into..." and select the slave file (or make a new one)

and it will ask you to confirmed it, click yes

finally on both files, go to the file header

in Record Flags, select ESL on both files (that will marked them as ESL regardless of filetype)

and then save it

and it should work

 

 

 

where it gets dicey, is when you want to have an ESL as a Master and an ESP as a slave because by it nature, an ESL will use the FE offset in Fallout 4 and ESP cannot.

so in the game engine, the slave ID is before the master ID

(well that is my understanding of it, I might be wrong)
