Hi. this is my first attempt at reinstalling the game fresh (using Skyrim Improved) and i'm having problems between conflicting advice about installation order.
I might actually be a n00b and have issues with bodyslide (not building a tbbp body yet)...but i'll assume that's not the case since i don't remember having to do that in my first try at modding the game.
Anyways, i digress, here i am with a mashup of three very good articles about installing the mods i want in my game.
I've decided that the best way to go is trying this install order for now as my first test run (after failing horribly yesterday and having no bouncing butt/boobs)
1. realistic ragdolls
2. FNIS behavior
3. FNIS creature pack
4. Remodeled Armor
6. Groove's XPMS
7. XP32's new animation pack (yes, i know i'm a heathen for not wanting immersive animations. sue me)
8. HDT physics
9. Female hairstyles with physics
10. merida hair with physics
11. Merida hair update
12. HDT high heels
13. Dual Sheath Redux
14. Dual Sheath patcher hotfix
I've run FNIS at each install point with proper check boxes just to be squeaky clean about it.
