Hi, I'm following the Step guide for Skyrim.  Version 2.2.9.2.

I've done this before without a hitch.  I've run into a problem, though.

I'm to the part where I install Enhanced Lighting for ENB-LITE and when I follow the instructions to set the loot priority for 970000 it just plain won't let me.  The highest priority value I can assign in LOOT is 127.  I know I've been able to do this before in previous runs of STEP Skyrim and I am at a loss.  Any help would be appreciated.

Here are the instructions for the specific step I'm trying to follow, any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Must be due to changes in new LOOT

This should be updated, I got stuck for a few hours trying to find this in the changelogs of LOOT.

Yeah, it looks as if the latest version of LOOT split priority (0-near infinity) into priority (0-127) and global priority (0-127).

For what it's worth you can download LOOT v0.9.2 here. Not sure if it's entirely the best idea to use an old version, but it does allow near infinite priority values.

I'm having the same problem.  For example,

Meta Rule Instructions
RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp

Main:

  • Priority Value: 960000

I can't do this in LOOT, however.  I guess I'll just put 127 for now...

The game can only have 255  ( thats 0 - 254, zero counts as the first slot ) mod slots

( Main game esm, dlc esms, and current save file take up a slot each so deduct them from 255 total ).

 

LOOT range if its Minus 127 thru zero to Plus 127 = 255 global priority positions

 

So it amply covers hexadecimal 00 - FE positions in the load order ( FF always being reserved by the game for the save slot )

Its the same Load Order rules for Skyrim SE, Skyrim, Fallout 4, FNV, FO3, Oblivion and Morrowind

 

I think STEP guide was right in the past, but its changed since in one of the many ( very many ) betas prior to the latest release of LOOT .. Surprised it did not get seen before now.

Just chopping the zeros off ie 960000 to 96 should get you fairly close.

I had these values set with the previous version of LOOT and after updating to the latest, these values have been automatically changed to 127. This is the value I have been changing the STEP guide to use.

I missed this mod's page and have now changed it.

Bash patch has intrinsic Priority value of 80. I think we need to take this into account.

Sorry I have taken so long to properly check into this. I've tested and have updated the rules to their proper values.

 

The Global Priorities should be set as follows:

  • RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp = 30
  • ELE_Legendary_Lite.esp = 40
  • STEP Patches = 50 (default)
  • Bashed Patch = 80 (default)
  • Dual Sheath Redux Patch.esp = 95 (default)
  • DynDOLOD.esp = 115 (default)

Using these priorities will place the mods where they were placed when the STEP Patches were created. Leaving a gap between the values allows for users to place mods between these plugin, if needed. For example, setting plugin XYZ.esp to a Global Priority of 35 will place it between Relighting Skyrim and ELE (possibly useful for other lighting or weather mods, but keep in mind the STEP Patches carry forward records from both these mods).
