Basic Essential Mods For SSE v1.5.97

A few deliberately basic mods to provide stability along with some bug fixes and QOL mods as a base keeping the game relatively vanilla to allow you to add other mods as you want. Best used on a new game. I am trying to avoid mods that are really game play preferences but call themselves "bug fixes".

A few deliberately basic mods to provide stability along with some bug fixes and QOL mods as a base, keeping the game relatively vanilla to allow you to add other mods as you want. Best used on a new game. I am trying to avoid mods that are really game play preferences but call themselves "bug fixes". ⠀

This collection might help people looking for archived legacy versions of essential mods. ⠀

This collection is for SSE 1.5.97. Only use if you know what you are doing.

  • The Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Downgrade Patcher might be necessary if you have inadvertently updated to v1.6.xx and need to revert back to v1.5.97.

  • Important! After the collection is installed, you will need to go into your Skyrim directory and copy the binkw64.dll.vortex_backup and rename the copy to binkw64_.dll. Otherwise the DLL Loader won't function correctly and you will be stuck on a blackscreen. See DLL Plugin Loader description page.

Must be installed on a new unmodded game. Period.

Feedback:

Please leave a Success Rating, successful or not. Appreciate comments, good or bad, left on the comments page.  

Down-voting the Success Rate without feedback is useless, as I can't help you to get it going or to fix it, if there truly is an issue with the collection itself. Thanks.

 

Notes:

  • Please make sure that you have the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2019 from here: Microsoft Visual C++ Downloads and the latest .NET Framework from this link. ⠀

  • Remember to launch the game using skse64_loader.exe !

  • SKSE64 is listed as "off site" but is really bundled with the collection. No additional downloads are necessary. ⠀

Also, please let me know what works and what doesn't work. Will be adding a few more mods based upon user feedback. Thanks.
