Dread, been running around in game just checking things out, fast traveling, making sure everything works OK, and so far so good. Checked your changelog and noticed several changes and additions that have been made for the better, and some of my suggestions made it into your guide, and thanks for that.
One of the things that puzzled me at first was the change to fortify smithing potions. I read the description of the mod Crafting Skills Revamped : https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/25418 and that mod is the one that changes it. Upon reading into the mod further, I like everything about it except THAT one change, but the other changes outweigh my dislike of it. One thing I did notice was in the compatibility section. The mod author states that it is incompatible with Enchantment Reload Fix, which is part of your guide under the fixes section. Don't know if you were aware of that or if one of your patches addresses the issue. Didn't dig into it any further than that, but just thought I would bring it to your attention if you overlooked that.
Overall a great guide, thanks for the work that you put into it. I have been poking around in xedit looking at what would need to be patched for some NPC appearance overhauls, and trying to keep the work involved to a minimum. I keep going back to Diversity due to the vanilla hair option available. Adding a couple of individual NPC overhauls on top of it, I really like these three :
Pandorable's Valerica : https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/35799
Pandorable's Serana : https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/24931
Poisoned Aela Sylvan Makeover (Mod Page NSFW) : https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/35262
The Aela makeover is based off of UUNP, not a CBBE option available infortunately. I've been digging around and think I have found a way to get the old UUNP from Skyrim LE, which I used for a long time, to work in CBBE bodyslide.
There are UUNP vanilla clothing and armor bodyslides already ported by Shiva182 : https://www.nexusmod...tion/mods/10980
I'm not asking for a change to another body type for the guide, this is just letting you know what I am looking at implementing into my version of your guide. If I get all of it working with relevant patches, I will let you know, as some people prefer a UNP body for females over CBBE.
Again, thanks for all the work you have done on the guide and continuing to support it.
