Hi.
 
I am about to get back into modding and get that first playthrough done * yes i know i know*
 
I have a few questions though to make sure that all the work goes as smooth as possible. More questions will be added im sure.
 
1: Installing NMM.
 
I got a few upgrades for my computer, and now my Win 8 is on a 500 gb SSD. Do I install NMM on this drive as I have done with Skyrim, or can this be placed on a normal drive and still have Skyrim benefit from the SSD speed?
 
2: None useful mods
 
I dont see myself as a modder, only a mod user. Last time I was modding Skyrim was my first time using both mods and NMM, so today when re-modding the game I was hoping for a bit of insight as to what mods I can skip or that perhaps that is imbedded in another modpackage all together. I want to save as much space as I can, so if you see anything that is entierly wrong or such, please let me know.

 

With something wrong i am talking about duplicate mod functions, broken or useless, gamebreaking or such and so on.

 

Thank you and have a nice day.

 

With Regards

Thariir
 
EDIT: The picture was first in bad quality, and for some reason linking it went fubar, and also, i saw that the pics where not of my latest mods i used, so that´s a bit of a problem.

 

Adding a list of them anyways because the list is somewhat accurate. The spoiler is the list btw so there are no gamespoilers in there.

1. AFAIK, NMM can be placed wherever you want. As long as you point it to the mod folder (which can ALSO be wherever you want, default is inside the NMM folder IIRC) it should work fine.

 

 

2. As far as mods go, Load Order is VITAL. Also knowing when to let one mod overwrite another. If it's overwriting textures, ti's all good. You can easily fix that and texture REPLACER mods are generally the simplest and easiest to use.

 

 

Hmm....

 

Lush trees vurts compability patch

 

Lush trees

 

Shouldn't the patch come AFTER the Lush trees mod?

1: Ok, so all will be good with NMM on my 1 TB drive and thus i will not fill up valuble space on the SSD. SSD will have Skyrim installed on it of course.

 

2: Yes and i have become better on that, and the list i added was not one i actually played with in that order. The loadorder i had was working flawless, at least for the 28 levels i played before i stopped. I watched Gopher´s videos and tips on loadorder as well to get a better understanding on it, but i dont know it all by far.

 

Ah, one thiong i missed there i see. I will also for my playthrough be using Climates of Tamriel. It feels like a must have for me so that is carved in stone!

Do I install NMM on this drive as I have done with Skyrim,

You only install NMM once and it works with all of the games it supports. You already have NMM for Skyrim, you don't need to install it again for another game. Just tell the NMM where the game is and it will work.

Roger that!

 

This is a fresh install though with new OS and all =)

LOAD ORDER is not important at all if you know how to mod, learn how to mod again using TES5edit and make a compatibility patch for all your mods and you no longer have to be concerned with load order.

I´m watching Gopher´s video on LOOT and it seems very interesting. BOSS was not really my thing, but i think LOOT may be.
