Gamebreaking bug in my .esp


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


I've searched the internet far and wide and I'm at my wit's end. Maybe one of you has an idea of how I can rescue my mod.


I've created a total conversion mod consisting of the (landscape).esm and an .esp file in which I placed all the objects, altered the terrain and added textures. I don't have any quests, scripts, or NPCs in my mod. For a while, everything went smoothly, and I tested the mod by riding around on my horse.


Then I dismounted, went for a swim, and when I wanted to get on horseback again, nothing happened. The animation was broken. And after that, not a single object in that esp file responded to E anymore. No crafting, no tanning, no smithing, no nothing. The character just stands there for five seconds before being able to move again. She doesn't freeze, she just stands there using the default idle. So E doesn't trigger anything but its menu sound anymore. I can still run around but everything else is broken.


It's not in the savegame cause I exited without saving. It's in this .esp cause the bug transfers to Skyrim when I have the esp activated, and when I deactivate it, everything's fine. It's not the keybind cause when I exchange E for U, nothing happens either.


I checked the Creation Kit for missing animations but they're all there (but i don't know if it's normal that no animation folder is shown and all the animations can only be seen in the actor preview?).


I can't start from scratch cause I've already put quite an amount of work into that esp and don't want to lose it.


I don't know whether it's a broken script or animation trigger or whatever. Whenever I had this bug in the game, running FNIS repaired it but with this esp, it doesn't. :(


Help please. :(

Not the game. It's a bug in the esp file, not in a save. I tested the mod for a while, everything was fine, and then from one moment to the next, I had the bug. I quit without saving but ever since that moment, activating the plugin breaks the animation for the entire game no matter which savegame I open or which world.esm I use. When I deactivate the esp file, everything's okay again.


I ran FNIS a million times but it didn't help.
