Hey Guys.


Seeing as I only started playing Skyrim about a year ago, I'm somewhat still new into the modding community.

I've been focused mainly on gameplay and immersion mods for a while but recently started checking out the top quest mods on the nexus.

So I just finished playing through the quest mod Darkend and I'm looking to start playing Falskarr next.

Now, my problem is my SSD (120GB) is pretty much filled up by now. 

Skyrim takes a whooping 50GB+ already due to the large number of mods i already installed and I only got like 2-3GB free lol.

I'm looking to free up some space by uninstalling the Darkend mod (it's about 500MB). I also know quest mods still run some scripts even after completion.

 

But frankly, though I enjoyed Darkend, I don't see myself revisiting it anytime soon. There's no point in having such a large mod take up much needed space on my SSD.

I really wanna keep all the loot and items I got from Darkend though.

Now here's my question...

1. Will uninstalling Darkend cause my save game to crash/be corrupted? 
(i still have a prior save backup I made before darkend)

2. Is there a way to keep all my loot from darkend and still uninstall the mod??
 

 

TL;DR -- 

Can I keep my items and loot I got from a mod after uninstalling that same quest mod??

Thanks Guys

I would uninstall, then pick up your game with the save you made prior to installing Darkend.  Removing  the mod in your current save is a risky proposition.  You would probably be ok, but I would advise against it.

If any of the loot is specific to that mod, then no, you won't be able to keep it. If the loot is generic weapons and armor, it should be fine.
