No "meshes" or "textures"- folders, just BSA files!

Hey everyone,

Please don't flame me asking this, I HAVE tried to search for similar posts and didnt find anything.
I tried to download and install a couple of mods already, but all of them required me to put stuff in the folders "Data/Meshes" and "Data/Textures", which unfortunately do not exist
in my Skyrim-folder. I installed Skyrim using Steam and I do find interface, strings and video folders, plus many Skyrim-something BSA files, but none of the above.
All of my game info seems to be in BSA files thus making me unable to add or change anything... Even the folders I do see are almost empty only containing translation files...

Those folders usually come with the mods. So, generally speaking, the first mod(s) you get will already come with an esp and the mesh/texture folders IN the downloaded folder. Chances are this mod already has texture and mesh folders...

If that's the case, just place the mod's contents in the games data folder in the Skyrim main directory.

If NOT, just create the folders yourself and make sure to spell them correctly. You must also make sure that the directories are all correct as well. Sometimes this means you will have to make more folders (i.e. textures>armors> etc...)

Usually mod authors will do this for you though so make sure...

After that, whenever you add new mods you will just merge the mod's folders into the game's data folders.

It's exactly what TheFourthHorse said. If you create the meshes and textures folders (etc), Skyrim will know to look for things inside those.
