I'm working on a school assignment, where they ask to create a mod on Skyrim.

The problem is that I'm still stuck on the building process!

 

The reason is that, for some unkown reason, my mod DELETES all the stuff I placed in the previous working sessions, and keeps only the items I placed last.

 

Maybe I've been doing this work all wrong, but what I do is:

 

1) Open Skyrim.esm, Update.esm and myMod.esm

 

2) Add stuff on maps I previously worked on (and checked if they were working properly, and they did)

 

3) Save my work

 

4) Upload the mod over my previous one

 

5) Try the mod, coc on the cell, and everything aside from the new objects is gone!

I hope there's a simple solution to it, I really need it!

Thanks in advance!

Are you making sure your mod (My mod) is set as the active file when you load the data in the creation kit?  Your mod will be an .esp file not an .esm  and labeled plugin file under status.

It wasn't set as an active file.

Now I setted it as an active one in the Data window.

So now it shouldn't delete my progress, correct?

 

I hope it works ^^

Thank you for the info!

Correct, as long as you set your mod as the active file, it will save onto that file.   Save often just in case the CK (creation kit) crashes.    Also, wherever you have your file saved, such as a working folder, when you save you will see that the modified date will also change and you can make sure your most recent changes have been captured. Good luck with your assignment!
