As I understand, mods in http://wiki.step-pro...om/STEP: are separated in categories but there is no proper mod order (left MO tab) / loadorder (Right MO tab) attached.

Can someone share it?

The mod order (left MO tab) is top-to-bottom, exactly in the order that they are listed on the page, per this note on the guide:

  • Mods should be installed in the order that they are listed to ensure that mods further down the list overwrite those occurring before them. This is necessary to ensure the desired in-game effect. Mods are otherwise listed in alphabetical order within each section, and any deviations from this are purposeful to achieve the desired outcome.

The plugin load order (right MO tab) is handled for you by running LOOT, per this note on the guide:


At any time during the mod installation process LOOT should be used to sort plugin load order before stopping to benchmark and test Skyrim. This is necessary to ensure proper plugin priority order (load order), which can have a dramatic impact on the game (or at worst cause a CTD).


When running LOOT, make sure that you have the applicable user metadata rules set up.

Well unfortunately this doesn't work as expected.

Mod Organizer suggests to move some mods in the left pane.

And if not, the game crashes on 'new game'. If so, then in crashes a bit later.

I have LOOT metadata, I created Bash Patch, Dual Sheath Redux Patch, FNIS patch.


Anyway, this is going to another thread.

If you are following the STEP guide then you can disregard that message as the install order is the priority order that is needed for the guide. In fact if you followed the MO install guide it has you turn that off in step 5. 



Go to the Plugins tab and click Basic diagnosis plugin on the left and double-click true next to check_modorder and change it to false.
