I'm getting no traction from my reddit post so I'll try here. No better man for it as they say!

 

Any whos I'm testing out too new merges, one for fast travels mods and the other with Cloaks of Skyrim & Winter is Coming together. Everything looks good except for some of the FormId has changed. Is this a major problem? Check out the images in the post above where you can see where the form IDs have changed.

 

If I control click on them however they point to the same problem location so...I dunno, is it ok?

FormIDs changing is a normal part of merging.  There are no problems here.

 

FormIDs have to change when merging because you can't have two records with the same local formID in a plugin file.

Yeah, I'm not sure what I'm stressing about here. Guess I figured I could merge plugins like the main .esp & it's patches together and name it the merge the same name as the main .esp.

That way if another mod could use it as a master. Also I wouldn't need to redo any CRing etc

Silly stuff and not important at all
