And just a couple of links for more information regarding the AFK patch:
 
IMPORTANT NOTE:  Both Nexus and AFK are working on versions of a patch, each taking their own approach, but each working for the benefit of the community, and both should be treated with the utmost respect.  Compiling a patch requires a lot of work and dedication, and both teams deserve the community's thanks and support for the selfless work they are doing.

4) MODDING THE GAME
 

THE GOLDEN RULE OF MODDING

"No matter how good a mod may look or sound, no matter how much you may really want a mod, if the mod does not work as it should, causes issues in your game, or even seems to have the potential to cause issues, dump the mod. A game that does not work is no game at all."  - smr1957

And, with the advent of Collections on Nexus, a new corollary to that:
"No matter how good a collection may look or sound, if it has a poor success rate, don't use it - and if it doesn't work, or causes issues, dump it." - smr1957

5) GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
THINGS TO DO IF THE GAME DOES NOT LAUNCH
Should individuals encounter an issue with their game, there are some basic steps that can be taken which apply to all Bethesda games
 
 

If you are still experiencing issues with crashing in Starfield after performing the troubleshooting in What can I do if Starfield is crashing on PC?, see:

ADVANCED TROUBLESHOOTING - CRASHING/FREEZING ON PC - STARFIELD

 
IF ON STEAM AND PLAY BUTTON IS GREYED OUT, RESTART STEAM
 
1 - Make sure that your machine meets the minimum requirements necessary to run the game.  This is the most basic thing, and though seemingly obvious, and something that an individual should do before they place an order for ANY game, it is occasionally overlooked.  If your system does not meet the minimum specs, unless you intend to upgrade anytime soon, you are better off refunding the game - as there is nothing that can realistically be done.
 
2 - Set the game to run as administrator
 
3 - Try the classic IT fix.  Exit the game.  Exit Steam (just don't close Steam but completely exit it.  To do so, in the top left corner of your screen, click on Steam (it is in small print and just above the arrows and STORE). From the dropdown menu that appears, click on Exit.  Once Steam has shut down, shut down your PC/Laptop, wait a minute or two, and then reboot.  Once your machine is running, launch Steam and then launch the game.
 
4 - Validate/Verify the game - doing this will ensure that all the files are as they should be - it is sometimes the case that there may have been an issue with the download or installation causing a file(s) to go missing or become corrupted.  Provided that your PC meets the minimum requirements, this is one of the first steps that should be taken, and solves many, if not most, issues.
NOTE: 1 file will always fail to validate; this is the file governing your graphics card, and as such, it will be acquired when you launch the game.
 
5 - Check that your antivirus is not blocking the game.  Antiviruses often do this - if so, the game needs to be added to the list of programs that your antivirus should not block
 
6 - If you are on a PC/Laptop and running into issues where you are unable to save games, see your previous saves, launch the game past the main menu, or having trouble with your .INI files not being updated, make sure that Microsoft's One Drive is disabled.  See:
 
7 - If all else fails, start a thread in the forum, detailing all the steps you have taken.  Hopefully, someone will have the answers or some ideas, and will be able to help.
 
The above are just the most basic and general steps that apply to just about any game.  Once more information becomes available, it will be expanded.

For now, the links will all be in the main topic post. At the end of the week or over the next weekend I will separate them out and place the links in the appropriate reply box - and the main topic will then just consist of the Introduction, General Information, and links to the individual Sections. Once that is done, any new links will be added directly into the individual section's box, and a post main informing of the addition (and, occasionally, of a removal).
