Instructions

> Mods with black text are essential for the game to look awesome and be bug-free. The F3BP ENB is based on these mods.
*Necessary mods.

> Mods with green text
are not essential, but highly recommended and will have very little/no FPS impact.
*Recommended for systems with 2GB video memory or less.
> Mods with blue text are also recommended, but might impact FPS. (When installed on top of black/green mods)
* Recommended for systems with 4+GB video memory.

 

NexusModManager (NMM) info:

When starting NMM, use the username and password from the Nexus site. Make sure "Archive Invalidation" is checked. See image.
The links in the mod-list will take you to the description page of every mod. Click the "Files" tab and you will get to the download section.
NMM will automatically catch the file(s) and start downloading right away after clicking "Mod Manager Download". NMM will then save the file, and the mod will show in the "mods" tab in the main window. Right click the mod, and you can choose to install, uninstall or permanently delete it. When a mod has been installed, a green check mark will show next to the mod, and if the mod contains esm/esp/esl files, then they will then show in the "Plugins" tab.

IMPORTANT: If at any time, NMM shows an "upgrade" dialog box (See image below), claiming that another version of a mod has already been installed, and asks: "Would you like to update?". Always select "No". No exceptions. ALWAYS "No".


 

The F3BP Mod-List
Unless otherwise specified, find the latest "Main File" and click

The following mods are to be installed one by one, in listed order. This is important, as some mods overwrite files from others. If nothing else is specified, install the latest "Main File" and click "YES" to overwrite if asked.

Recommended: After installing each section of mods, launch the game to see if everything works. The list is long, and it's easy to miss an item or install a wrong file. If the game doesn't work, at least you will know which chunk of mods you need to look at, to figure out what went wrong.
*Just make sure to sort the load-order (NMMs plugin window) correctly before launch. *Correct load-order: (LINK)

*For the best match to the original game-style, install "Dead Edition v13C"
*For a "less depressing", and theoretically more realistic game world, install "Forested Edition v1.5"
