Hello to anyone who sees this o/
I basically wish to port some weapon mods (they are basic weapon mods, small content, they have no quests or landscapes applied to them, though I do think they have levelled list files) from skyrim to skyrim special edition, for my own use, not to be publicly provided.
so of course I need to know how to do this, so I'm asking if anyone could advise or provide resource links, However please bare in mind I have never everâ made or even ported a mod before, this is my very first attempt, also I only just recently got a pc that can connect to the internet, so anything that is classed as basic pc knowledge that applies to this scenario would also need to be provided, as well as being tailored to someone who really is at the bottom of the ladder, which Is why I feel it necessary to be in correspondence with real people as opposed to just looking up guides etc. online that could be tailored to someone with a higher base knowledge.
as far as tools I have which I'm pretty sure I will need ; creation kit, it was for an fo4 purpose so I don't know if there is a separate version for SSE, the SSE edit tool, but ive only used this to clean ITMs and UDIs.
If you read this and are willing to help and advise, these following two things are what I want to clarify and get advice, resources on:
1. since this is other peoples work from skyrim provided freely as a mod to the public, I am aware that porting/converting another persons mod for public â distribution requires consent, I am not to sure about if its purely for myself, Id assume that I wouldn't need consent because I'm still using the mod as intended by the MA, but assuming is a bad thing to do, this is also why I'm willing to learn and do it myself as it would be purely for me at first, as opposed to requesting someone else do it.
so this needs to be clarified first for my sake, obviously IF the above assumption is correct, I am well aware that to provide as a mod for public I would need to acquire consent, and link them on the page.
2. the relevant advise and guidance, resource links tailored to someone who really needs to be taught from the ground up.
I'm also happy to say which weapon mods I'm planning to port, and why if someone is interested, but that would go off track from this post if I included it here.
sorry for the wall of text and thank you to anyone who can and is willing to advise.
