Since the release of STEP v2.2.9 there has been an ongoing issue with naked NPCs in various parts of Skyrim. Until today the issue was under investigation. It has now been resolved. If you are having this issue, please continue reading to resolve it.
There are naked NPCs in the game. Although this makes for a quite hilarious encounter with couriers running up to the PC stating they have something for "your eyes only", this issue needed resolving. After a lot of head scratching and troubleshooting it was discovered the naked NPCs were caused by the addition of aMidianBorn Content Addon in STEP v2.2.9. More specifically, Content Addon has not been given the needed bash tags for it to function properly in certain mod setups such as STEP. This caused issues with the leveled lists.
The issue is resolved by adding the Delev and Relev tags to aMidianBorn_ContentAddon.esp before rebuilding your Bashed Patch. The instructions for doing this have been add on the Bashed Patch mod page. This will resolve the naked NPCs for any new game that is started. However the issue will remain present on any saves without the proper bash tags being added to Content Addon.
To fix the naked NPCs on current saves do the following:
- Find the NPC.
- Open the console ( ~ key )
- Click on the NPC to display its Base ID
- Type in resetinventory <Base ID> .....(For example: resetinventory 0008774F)
- Hit Enter and the command will run. You will probably see the NPC turn partially invisible.
- Close the console and the NPC should be fixed.
This will have to be done for any naked NPCs or NPCs missing items (like boots) that are encountered. This method isn't ideal; however, it does prevent users from having to restart their games in order to fix the issue.
Some users have also reported LOOT not properly applying some bash tags. It is recommended, if other issues are present, to check this to make sure the bash tags have been properly applied before building the Bashed Patch.
