Gnafron Posted October 22, 2017 Share Posted October 22, 2017 Now that we have so many tools to help stabilize this programming mess that is Skyrim, I'd like to share my experience.I have recently started a new playthrough with a mod list of about 140 mods (from tiny to fairly large) and about 100 plugins, throwing in it some utterly lore unfriendly ones just for the lulz.I had been accustomed to a rather stable Skyrim, thanks to the various patches and fixes some very talented and dedicated modders have produced through the years.But this time, I felt I was back in 2012 stability wise. It was a CTDs feast. And as everyone knows it, Skyrim does not crash before you are level 30, just to make sure you wasted enough time on a character...Long story short : it was the meshes. "Crash fixes" warned me and recorded everything in its log.TERA armors, TERA weapons and BLESS armors meshes (among others) were filled with critical errors which, according to NifScan, cause unexplainable (at first) and completly random CTDs.So, to people who cannot fathom why Skyrim insists on crashing at random while they have followed every sensible modding rule, I'd say this : check your meshes with NifScan. And then fix them with NifSkope. Yes, it may be tedious at times, especially when you stumble on a "nest".Also don't hesitate to signal such faulty meshes to modders.People always make a fuss about dirty edits in an .esp but this... this happens to be even more detrimental to Skyrim stability.Heal your meshes !
