NexusModManager (NMM) info:

When starting NMM, use the username and password from the Nexus site.
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.

Note: If at any time, NMM shows an "upgrade" dialog box (See example image), claiming that another version of a mod has already been installed, and asks: "Would you like to update?". ALWAYS select "No". No exceptions. "No" will install the mod normally, which is the only correct way.

 

The SSEBP 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)

Note: Some links will point to mods that were made for the "old" Skyrim (Referred to as: LE - Legendary Edition). These mods has to be downloaded manually and added to NMM via "Add mod from file".
*Proper conversions and fixes are included where needed. (Everything with correct form 44 and optimized nif files. No fast sloppy half-solutions.)

The following "armor"-mods are not exactly Bethesda-policy-lore-friendly, and they don't bring any significance to the story. However, the complete absence of appealing clothing is not entirely realistic either. In my opinion anyway. If the game had a category for lingerie, that's where these mods would fit. They are fairly moderate in terms of materials and presence in the world, so in that sense they are pretty lore-friendly. If you want more explicit and "not so moderate" mods, of which there are plenty, try these sites:

Mods 9: New NPCs & Quests
These mods are all optional, so just pick any you like. I highly recommend installing at least some of them, so Skyrim won't feel so "empty". You can of course use any standalone follower mods from the Nexus. However, these mods have all been tested to work together and with the rest of the guide. I have made texture optimizations where needed, making them less demanding. In short, these mods are guaranteed to work, and they will perform well

Amazing Follower Tweaks SE (LINK)
Install 1: "Amazing Follower Tweaks"
Install 2: "AFT_iNPC Alpha SSE Fix"
Note: This mod has small conflicts with follower mods and quest mods. Nothing game-breaking, but it might be annoying. It can also potentially ruin your save-game file, if used excessively over time. For example, if you constantly have 12 followers everywhere you go, or if you park 20 followers in the same house. Use with care, or don't install.

Mods 13: Weather System - Choose either Option 1 or Option 2


Option 1 - Recommended
Very diverse weather system, ranging from clear blue skies to heavy fog and rough storms. Includes a much better fog system, which makes it look like real fog instead of just a distance-fade. See screenshots (LINK)


Climates Of Tamriel 3.1 SSE (DOWNLOAD)
Note: This is an SSE conversion of "Climates Of Tamriel 3.1" (LINK) *Don't download from Nexus

 (DOWNLOAD)
Expanded Snow Systems - Patch for CoT DG - SSE (DOWNLOAD)

 


Option 2
The latest version of CoT. A newer but more modest system without the rough weathers. See screenshots (LINK) *The most noticeable disadvantage compared to option 1, is the lack of "real" fog. The fog just looks like distance-fade, which makes it less interesting in my opinion


Climates Of Tamriel Special Edition - Weather - Lighting - Effects - Audio 5.7 (LINK)
*This latest version of CoT does have some minor improvements compared to CoT 3.1. However, in my opinion, this mod by can't compare to the changes brought by "Climates Of Tamriel - Weather Patch" and "Supreme Storms".
