Hello everyone,

 

I've had a few suggestions to switch over from Dance of Death to VioLens within my Lets Play Video series. I use the entire 2.2.9 STEP mod list as well as real vision, climates of tamriel, skyre, and a few other mods.

 

My concern : As far as I know Dance of Death which I have installed works just fine. With my massive mod list I have no crashes.... ever. Would switching over to VioLens potentially begin instability?

I'm not sure as I've never uninstalled DoD but VioLens is superior by far.

I switched from DoD (long time user big fan) to VioLens a month or so ago. VioLens seems trouble free and offers a deeper MCM suite.

Feedback that the viewer who suggested it also said he had 100 mods installed and switched over without issues. I think I have something like 275( of which I've combined some) and close to 200 esp's . I'm really interested in trying it. Perhaps a few days on different save are in order. Thank you guys for the quick response.

Assuming you are a Mod Organizer user, just use the profile manager menu to copy your existing profile & swap DoD for VioLens on the copied profile. Don't save over any of your old save files and you can always revert at any time, safe & simple.

I appreciate that my friend. I use M.O., I've created a couple videos on it = )

 

I was thinking along those lines for testing it. Was hoping not to have to do too many hours of testing as my free time to do so is limited. Perhaps a few hours here and there over the next few weeks and see where it goes. Do you know if VioLens allows for more, different, kill moves in game?  Say, my character doesn't chop an enemies head off or stick the sword through their ear everytime? Tired and wording it wrong I think. More variety than DoD I guess I'm trying to say?  I've read the mod page but I much rather hear from someone using it.

It feels like DoD to me, with a deeper/better MCM. I believe it has all the moves DoD had (a few that clipped egregiously or otherwise looked awful might have been cut), same provision to allow decaps to be perk limited. I loved DoD, but I'm glad I switched up to VioLens both for features and continued support.

If you copy your current profile you can just continue playing (instead of rigorous testing) after the DoD/VioLens swap, I did and eventually deleted the original profile I favor of the copy once I knew VioLens was safe.

One of my subscribers suggested VioLens, and so far I've been pleased. The mod author of DoD, DaedalusAI, even suggests using VioLens on the description page for his mod on the Nexus.

Do you happen to have a compiled list of successful esp merges? I'm near 260 and having a tough time compromising on mod selections.

Not esps. I meant I had 275 mods (some textures and stuff without esps) that i've combined into single mods. esp's I still only have like 200. Haven't needed to combine those yet.

Oh. That's understandable.
