I can't find the plugins.txt. file either, I've tried using 'search' but nothing turned up. Even when I searched manually, my Appdata folder is apparently nonexistent. Since you've had some luck, can you help me out?

I had this issue with an apparently hidden location in Win 7 - Solution: open Windows Explorer and click in the top text box where location is usually shown as eg. Libraries> this gets you the old style look. Type in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local and scroll down for Skyrim folder. You could add \Skyrim of course but you may want to check what else is hidden away here ;)

Interesting question. I would add to that - what effect would 'white space' have also? Would be interested if anyone knows.

I wanted more realistic bodies in Skyrim. (i.e.) CHCBHC-CBBE-BBP

I am experiencing a lighting problem indoors close to fires and windows.
A faint shadowy pattern similar to zebra stripes appears across parts of the skin.
This pattern is flicking around in certain areas but changing slowly enough that my eye can track it.
The patterns will move at different angles and change at different positions.
I suspect it may be related to shading?

Can I do anything to correct it?

1. Skyrim compatible textures
2. NVidia Graphics card settings
3. Lighting patches

These are all the mods I have installed in exact order they were installed
I used the TES Mod Manager to install everything except one mod that needed manual installation.
I was able to apply all by adjusting the order.

apply :: CBBEv3M Body Repalacer by MAK
apply :: WSBP - Windsong Skyrim Beauty Project V1 by Windsong
apply :: RANs HeadMech Variants - RANs type-C Headmesh
apply :: envision Face - envision Face Large Lips for CBBE
apply :: Natural Eyes oRIGINAL sIZE 1_3
apply :: ApachiiSkyHair by Apachii
apply :: CHSBHC - BBP - Nude and Jiggly Mod - CHSBHC-Body-Physics-ModV2-4-1
apply :: BBP Scale for CHSBHC with BBP
apply :: Patch to fix arm animation issue of the BBP system of CHSBHC by mirap
apply :: Alternative Nude Texture
apply :: NoMaaM Breathing Idles BBB
apply :: Feminine Running and New Dash Animation by xp32
apply :: Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition -CBBE- vr 3.0
copy in :: Calientes Body Slide Version 1.2
correct :: use notepad to update the pathname in Config.xml
apply :: Calientes Vanilla Armor for CBBE - CVA Combined Pack v2-0-1
execute :: body slide version 1.2 using CalienteBody BBP
:: use Calientes BBP settings that match up well with the next mod
apply :: Stacked Against Gravity Body & Armors BBP/Scaling
apply :: A Quality World Map - With Roads - Quality World Map - All Roads
execute :: run skyrim and open console with "~" key
:: run "showracemenu"
:: close console with"~" key
:: adjust weight to for smaller size
:: save game and restart

Wait, so how do you know the order in which to list the mods in plugins.txt or loadorder.txt I'm not sure how to do this and after it says Bethesda Studio, it just crashes and sends me back to my dekstop.

AFAIK comment lines and empty lines are just ignored. Causing a parser to fail when either is encountered in a relatively free-form file is pretty stupid, and I trust that Bethesda's programmers aren't pretty stupid. (Though with the Skyrim launcher being case-sensitive, it is sometimes difficult to tell.)

Try it and see what happens.

Will this conflict with using Steam Mods and their load order?

Steam mods don't have a separate load order. Mods are mods to the game, it doesn't matter where they come from.

That's a list of things you can download, not a load order.

I'd suggest starting a new thread for your issue, if you've already done a search for it and found no existing threads.

Wait, so how do you know the order in which to list the mods in plugins.txt or loadorder.txt I'm not sure how to do this and after it says Bethesda Studio, it just crashes and sends me back to my dekstop.

Just use BOSS if you don't know. There are explanations of how to decide on a load order lying around the internet. TESCOSI has a reasonably accurate article on Load Order, IIRC.
