Just recently I installed the Hearthfire add-on into Skyrim and everything seemed to be running fine for a while. However, after purchasing the Lakeview Manor plot I experienced a drastic increase in both loading and saving times in Skyrim. I disabled amost all of my mods to investigate the root cause, but so far the culprit seems to point directly to Hearthfire. Part of me is thinking that it may have to do with the fact that I changed the load order of the ESM files in order to coincide with each of my add-ons' chronological release, however I am unsure if this is the case. Please let me know if i've put my ESM files in the right order.
Here's my load order with the few mods I have enabled:
- Unofficial Skyrim Patch.esp
- Unofficial Dawnguard Patch.esp
- Unofficial Hearthfire Patch.esp
- Unofficial Dragonborn Patch.esp
Also, my current save file is ~10MB. I'm not sure if that's a high or low number, but if it is a bit high could anyone recommend a way to reduce bloat? Thanks in advance! Scratch that. Hearthfire ate my character's related save files for some reason.
