Not sure I would merge an ESM with the merge script. Maybe leave that and just merge the other stuff.
Also, you want to take a look at AWOP Revisions.
...is that bad? I am kind of hesitant to change mods around during a playthrough, although I totally will for the cause. I understand what you are saying, but for the sake of load order and compatibility we would want to merge as many of the .esp's into one mod as we can, correct? Something along the lines of:
the esm by itself
AWOPDeadMoney.esp, AWOPLowLootMWeaponsArmor.esp, AWOPLowLootSkillBooks.esp
AWOP - Balance and Cleanup and Weapon Rebalance
Not sure if I should merge the main file (Balance and Cleanup AND Weapon Rebalance.esm) with these patches -PNRebalanced Health.esp and Dead Money Redone.esp
AWOP Revs 4 - Scaled Goodsprings Fight, AWOP Revs 7 - Vision Enhancements, AWOP Revs 8 - Quest Fixes (Must be loaded after Balance and Cleanup)
I understand this is taking up precious load order space, but the amount of content this mod adds is so worth it. The 'M' style weapons, however, may need to be disabled altogether (my opinion, as they are kind of far from the S.T.E.P. Mandate)to keep from obtaining powerful weapons very early.
SRB, do you have any thoughts on install order? Should this pack be installed after the quest mods toward the beginning of the guide?
