I have been following Gopher's guides to using vortex to install mods on skyrim special edition and tried to install the exact mod he was installing (A quality world map).

 

As far as I can tell I have followed the guide correctly but when I load the game the map isn't changed, i am using version 1.2.19 of vortex and I have no other mods installed.

 

I have checked the mod is enabled and the setting to deploy when enabled is on, my downloads folder is currently located in C:\ProgramData\vortex\downloads (the default location i believe)

and my mods folder is currently located in G:\Games\Vortex Mods\skyrimse. SSE is located in G:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\Skyrim Special Edition.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Did you check the PLUGINS Tab to see if "icepenguinworldmapclassic.esp" is enabled? (The last part of the name might vary depending on what option you picked)

Just checked and the file isn't there, there is just the default skyrim stuff.

Check SETTINGS---------->MODS is the Deployment method set to Hardlink Deployment?

SAME, issue resolved the same way. Appears vortex needs a restart the first time around for it to work.
