As of STEP 2.2.8, we are only actively supporting Skyrim Legendayr Ed. (all DLCs) - We continue to 'passively' support other DLC/non-DLC configurations as an artifact of having done so previously. However, moving forward, all new content will assume Legendary Ed. We will gradually phase out information pertaining to limited DLC components.
STEP 2.10.0 marks another step towards official STEP Pack support. However there is still much work to be done for STEP to be ready to make this transition. Because of this and there being no time frame for Pack development, we have decided to do incremental releases. v188.8.131.52 was the first. v184.108.40.206 was the second. These releases will mainly be mod releases, meaning that we'll mainly be testing and reviewing mods.
With this release, we have also reviewed our version scheme. You will notice this change now in that the next release will be version 2.10.0. For more information on this visit the wiki page here.
Since this is a community driven project and site, we would like to encourage users to tag mods they'd like to see in STEP. To do this, please add a 'testing' tag to the desired mods. This will allow us to filter the mods and review them. Mods that we think fit into the STEP project will be officially marked for testing and mods that do not will simply have the 'testing' tag removed.
Dev Guide v2.10.0
Changelog (subject to developmental updates)
Mods currently in Testing
For replacers, the test case should be a high-quality screenshot compare. We don't need a lot, just two or three sets of compares on the thread marked [ TESTING ].
The idea is that testing --and logging of that activity on the threads-- will be touch & go for a lot of mods, and it should be pretty clear by anyone stumbling upon any mod thread what the end result is.
Let us know if you want to be a Mod Tester! We're always looking for official testers!
