It looks like a couple changes from the RDO - Cutting Room Floor Patch.esp weren't incorporated through to the STEP extended patched. Here are FormIDs as reported by xEdit are:
- LillithMaidenLoomRef [ACHR:0010E2B6] (places LillithMaidenLoom "Lillith Maiden-Loom" [NPC_:00013BC0] in GRUP Cell Temporary Children of WhiterunStables "Whiterun Stables" [CELL:000165A0])
- [INFO:0002129C] ('Mind you don't cross Tassius. He's in charge around here.' in GRUP Topic Children of [DIAL:0002124F])
- [INFO:0002ABA7] ('Old lady Maiden-Loom owns the stables. But my father and me, we run things.' in GRUP Topic Children of [DIAL:0002707A])
- [INFO:02015C80] ('Look at you, wandering around causing trouble. Precious.' in GRUP Topic Children of [DIAL:02004DAA])
There are several other entries that are included the STEP Extended. Could the patcher have accidentally used RDO - USLEEP.esp instead (the RDO nexus says RDO - Cutting Room Floor Patch.esp is a joint compatibility patch for use with BOTH CRF & USLEEP)? The 3rd & 4th entries above don't seem necessary (although the 4th one says in NAM3 - Edits says "Edited ON PURPOSE!"), but the 1st & 2nd seem important for stability.
I went ahead and incorporated my changes to my own compatibility patch. Let me know if I should reverse this...
