I just finished the entire STEP Extended lineup installation, and I realized that I chose the Performance version of the STEP Optimized Vanilla textures, when I wanted the standard version. I know Mod Organizer keeps files in separate folders instead of constantly overwriting, but I didn't know how much overwriting actually got done. Can I download and install the right version without undoing all of the subsequent texture modification? Do I have to start all over?

No, just download/install then situate the standard version in your left pane in MO, then untick performance version (or remove/ininstall it to save space). That is the beauty of MO. Tick/untick mod in left pane to install/uninstall, and situate priority to control what overwrites.

Okay, awesome. And one more thing about situating priorities: I've been periodically running LOOT and letting it sort the plugin priority. That said, the left pane of MO has the priority rankings, too - and they're just sorted by time of install, which means they're in the order listed on the STEP guide. Do I need to be manually adjusting priority apart from order of install?

 

Also, LOOT has 102 plugins listed as the total count, but I have 226 installed according to MO. I know I disabled the dummy plugins, and some mods affect existing mods, but that's still a big discrepancy. What causes that?

Mod priority (left pane) only dictates what assets result from the final mod-asset merge. plugin priority (LOOT) is different and dictates what plugin instructions result in the final plugin merge.

 

You don't need to change anything other than what I said in my last.

Sweet. Okay, one last question. I added all the mods on the list (except for ones that STEP extended users didn't need), and when I ran the STEP compilation installer, the option to install for STEP extended isn't available. The instructions say " See the OP of the forum topic to help determine any missing mods." The OP of what forum topic?

The forum topic link at the top of the wiki mod page of the mod in question ;)
