Hello,

currently I'm starting my second play trough of Skyrim. I played it once about 3 or 4 years ago, but I think it's time to play again. Right now I'm in the middle of my STEP setup. Its very hard work and I'm shocked about how many bugs, errors and inconsistencies you guys have fixed throughout the years. I think it might feel like a whole new game. Just bought a new graphics cards because of this (old card only has 1GB Video RAM).

 

But now to my questions. I'm from Germany, and I have installed the game in German. This made me think of two questions:

  • Do I get any unforeseen problems because of this? Anything I might have overlooked? I ask because I've just seen the following: 
    https://wiki.step-pr...#2.E._Interface
    https://wiki.step-pr...ont_Replacement -> "DO NOT USE this mod if Skyrim language is not set to English!"
  • Second question: If I should decide to play in englisch, (which would be no problem for me) what would be the best way to switch? I tried to stick exactly to the guide. And If I understand it right, everything I've done has only happend inside MO and the Steam-Skyrim folder is (nearly) untouched. Could I just switch the game language in Steam and nothing will happen? I mostly think about the cleand ESM files, as I don't know if they inherit any language references. 

I hope I could explain what I wanted to know. If anything is explained inaccurate please give me a hint I will try again. Thank you very much!

The Main Font Replacer mod does not support character sets other than English so you should skip this one. This is the only mod in the guide with this restriction.

 

If you switch languages, you do not need to do anything with the plugins you've already cleaned. Skyrim.esm, Update.esm, Dawnguard.esm, Hearthfire.esm, and Dragonborn.esm contain localized string references. All the culture-specific strings are stored externally so the ESMs stay the same regardless of language.

Thanks for clarifying this. I will try to stick with German.

 

But I noticed one thing. The "Guard Dialogue Overhaul" Mod (https://wiki.step-pr...alogue_Overhaul) offers the possibility to choose the fitting language file. I guess that this is for a reason, and the english version wouldn't be right for me. You should mention this in the install notes, so that the STEP User has to consider this.

By now I finished my STEP installation and started playing for about 3 hours. I'm mostly happy with the overall look and feel of the game after this enormous guide. But I'm unhappy with the language experience. 

I have now a mixture of german and english which is confusing und annoying. For the quests and dialogue it's somewhat ok, as I can mostly think of what the people mean. But particularly the item menu is frustrating, as the item names are also partly in english, which makes sorting nearly impossible. 

Any hint on which mod(s) did this to the quest journal and item names? Some of the mods had a german version, but maybe I missed one. 

If nobody can't help me, I might be forced to switch to english.

Complete Crafting Overhaul
Lore Based Loading Screens

Translated versions of other mods may be available as well, but I think Complete Crafting Overhaul is the primary one you want.
