Local Files

1 - Merge files: Skyrim has a load-limit of 255 files in the load-order. Therefore, if you want to install all mods from this guide (600+), which I highly recommend, then you will have to "cheat" a little. I have merged some of the esp files from different but similar mods, which saves space in the load-order. You still need to install the individual mods, but you can disable their esp files in the load-order, and only activate the merged esp file instead.
2 - Missing mod files: Sometimes mods are taken down or have become temporarily "hidden" for various reasons. This is VERY annoying while in the middle of modding, so I have decided to post "missing/hidden" mods here until they are yet again available.

 


1 - Merge-Files
Please read the instruction!

Instruction: Download the merged files, and add them to NMM. Make sure you also install the mods which they merge. Install the merge-files via NMM, and go to the "Plugins" tab. Place the merge-file right below the mods which it merges, then uncheck the merged mods. Just leave the merge-file(s) active and checked.

Osmodius Windhelm Texture Pack (DOWNLOAD)
I removed a few textures from this package, which I found to be better in "Authentic Windhelm". This way, "Osmodius" can overwrite anything from "Authentic Windhelm", keeping the best textures from both mods.

The Kids Are Alright Fix (DOWNLOAD)
This is a "small" patch, as the original mod for some reason has problems reading inside it's bsa. This can result in kids with very creepy faces. I think the mod works as intended if no other mods are loaded, but to make it work in this setup, this fix needs to be installed.
