So the special edition of skyrim just came out last week and I noticed I got the upgrade for free!

 

I am very happy about this! Now I want to mod the game, but would the normal step guide be good for the SE? Should there be a new guide made just for the special edition?

 

I'm hoping I can mod the game enough to use a VR headset and live in Skyrim. lol

Normal guide is pretty much useless for SE.

Links are for old mods that need to be resaved in new CK, all BSA need to be repacked else they produce crashes, lots of mods are not needed anymore or haven't been ported or may be never will be ported.

 

Either way do the old way (trial and error) or play vanilla until all the little problems have been ironed out.

What, plaGGy said. Also, there will be a supplemental Guide as soon as enough of the mods are ported over. We're maintaining a list and will convert it to a Guide of sorts when the time is right.

Am i correct in my guess that the big bottleneck on the special edition is getting a updated version of skse?  Seemed a lot of mods required it.

That and just waiting for the authors to port mods overs. We'd also like to have a look at the upcoming mod manager that Tannin and team are working on.

Browsing the Nexus, I'm seeing a lot of mods that I'm familiar with from my previous attempts at modding Skyrim with STEP, though I'd be interested in seeing a list of which mods have been updated for Special Edition.  Ideally, something as simple as Name of Mod and then Yes/No, or a note as to whether the mod author is working on updating the mod.

 

Don't need a full blown guide yet, just something to see how far along mods are coming.  I was about to do so, but if there is a rough list, that'd save some time.

Thanks for the list.  You can add Nordic Snow to the List.  It was previously named HQ Snow.

 

Nordic Snow: http://www.nexusmods...tion/mods/670/?

 

Where would the most convenient place be to report mods in the STEP that have been updated for Special Edition?

Thanks. I didn't catch that one. I'm going through the new mods every couple days and adding any that I see to the list. Feel free to use this thread for reporting ported mods.

2K. Clutter and Miscellaneous

Book Covers Skyrim: http://www.nexusmods...tion/mods/901/?

Rustic (Animated) Potions and Poisons http://www.nexusmods...ion/mods/2276/?

 

 

On mods that haven't been ported over, but there are alternatives:

 

CC's HQ Septims (New Style 2) could potentially replace Septim HD if it doesn't get brought over to SE.

Acquisitive Soul Gems Multithreaded seems to do the same thing as Smart Souls.  Traps souls in the same quality of Soul Gems

 

CC's HQ Septims: http://www.nexusmods...ion/mods/2228/?

Acquisitive Soul Gems Multithreaded: http://www.nexusmods...ion/mods/1469/?

 

 

I was also curious, I saw "Bellyaches HD Dragon Replacer Pack (SE)" on your list, but couldn't seem to find it on the STEP 2.2.9.2.  Was it going to be added, or somehow dropped from 2.2.9.2, or am I (and Chrome's search) missing it?

Thanks.

 

Bellyeaches was one of the mods that was absorbed into the STEP Compilation.

Ah, that makes some sense, and more mods for the list.
 
Mods from the STEP Compilation that have been brought over:
 
Bowlegged jump animation fix: http://www.nexusmods...ion/mods/2215/?
No Spinning Death Animation: http://www.nexusmods...ion/mods/1432/?
 
 
Although the STEP uses Visible Windows, which looks slightly better than vanilla, Rustic Windows could be an alternative.  As described on the mod page, the type of glass used makes sense from the perspective of the northern climate, by allowing light in, and providing insulation from the cold.

Feel free to comment on Rustic Windows in the discussion thread if you want it included in a future version of the guide.

Tannin is working with the Nexus team now, correct? So we can expect a mod manager that takes the best from both NMM and Mod Organizer? That sounds promising.  ::):

This mod seems great for immersion, it makes Skyrim NPCs more lively and reduce the long pauses in dialogues
