{{TOC right|limit=2}}
 
LOOT (Load Order Optimization Tool) is designed to assist users in creating a working and stable load order, based on author and community provided "meta" rules, with minimal effort on the user's part. For this program to work correctly, a number of custom "user" meta rules need to be added. Once you have entered these rules, they will remain persistent unless you clear all user metadata in LOOT or delete the local custom metadata file.
 
 
<span style="color:Orange">Idiot Check:</span>
 
 
*Ensure the following LOOT User Metadata Rules are entered, ensuring they are also assigned to the group indicated:

<span style="color:Orange">Instructions:</span>
 
 
Perform the following steps on initial setup of your load order and any time an ESP/ESL/ESM file (other than those created on this page) are changed:
 
 
*Start Mod Organizer 2.
 
*Select LOOT in the executable selection box and click [Run].
 
*Find the icon that looks like a horizontal bar graph (mouse over text should state "Sort Plugins") and click it.
 
*After some processing, the calculated load order will be displayed in the right pane of LOOT. Click the [Apply] button.
 
*Click the [X] on the title bar to close LOOT.
 
 
All mods currently installed will now be ordered based upon the master list downloaded by the tool and the user metadata that was created while installing mods in this guide. However, they may not be in the order the plugins themselves are expecting. Note that this will not affect the ability of the game to run the files, but can be fixed by:
 
 
*Opening SSEEdit in Mod Organizer 2 and click [OK] (make sure you are not loading your QuickAutoClean profile of SSEEdit).
 
*After the load is complete, select all files.
 
*Right-Click, and in the menu that appears, select "Sort Masters".
 
*After SSEEdit has completed working, click the [X] in the upper right-hand corner
 
*A pop-up window will list all files that were altered. Uncheck "Backup plugins", and click [OK] to save the new versions. If no pop-up appears, no files needed alteration.
 
 
== <span style="color:#00FF00">FNIS - Fores New Idles in Skyrim</span> ==
 
FNIS (Fores New Idles in Skyrim) was created to allow for new skeletons (not the creatures, the 'bones' of a in-game character) and animations that the default Skyrim engine could not support. This includes new animations, gender-specific animations, poses, and so forth. This involves the use of an external patcher, "GenerateFNIS_for_Users.exe", which will analyze your load order and selected options to create specialized .HKX files to match your current skeleton and animation configuration.
 
 
<span style="color:orange">Instructions:</span>
 
 
Prior to initial run:
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> In Windows Explorer - navigate to your Mod Organizer 2/Mods folder.
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> Create a new folder to act as a mod for the new FNIS files. We recommend "FNIS Output".
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> Launch Mod Organizer 2. Ensure FNIS Output (or the name you chose instead) is checked and the mod activated. NOTE: Since the mod is empty at the moment, you will see an X on a grey background in the same line - this is normal, and will be resolved shortly.
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> In the top toolbar, select the Executables Option.
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> In the Executables window, locate FNIS. This should have been created when you installed this tool during the Mod Page. If it does not, create it now.
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> In the "Create Files in Mod instead of Overwrite" dialog box, select "FNIS Output" (or equivalent) from the drop down menu.
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> Click "Apply".
 
<span style="color:cyan">8.</span> Exit the Executables window.
 
 
Perform the following on initial setup and any time animations are added, removed, or updated in your load order:
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> Select FNIS in the executable selection box, and click [Run].
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> The FNIS main interface should appear. If it does not, review the installation section for FNIS on the Mod Page.
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> In the "Available Patches" section at the bottom of the window, Select the following: GENDER Specific Animations, SKELETON Arm Fix, and tktk1's TK Dodge/Ultimate Combat.
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> Click the [Update FNIS Behavior] button.  Wait for a message to appear in the window stating "X animations for Y mods successfully included.". Note that the window may lose focus and appear to flicker while it is running - this is normal.
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> Click [Exit].
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> Verify that Mod Organizer 2 has automatically placed the generated files into the FNIS Output folder in Mod Organizer. If the red X mentioned earlier is still present, refresh the list (through the right click menu).
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> Activate the mod (if not already active).
 
 
For reference, the FNIS Output folder should contain the following:
 
* a meshes folder, containing new hkx behavior files.
 
* a scripts folder, containing 3 compiled scripts for version tracking.
 
* a tools folder, containing logs.
 
 
== <span style="color:#00FF00">A Quick Test</span> ==
 
Before finalizing the load order and generating the last few patches we need, it's time to make sure the installation is working as intended. There are three main causes of CTD (Crash to Desktop) at this point in the guide - this test will help you identify both of these.
 
 
<span style="color:orange">Instructions:</span>
 
 
Perform the following:
 
* Launch the game via SKSE in MO2.
 
* If the game crashes before the main menu, see the Main Menu section below.
 
* From the main menu, open the console (the ~ key on most setups).
 
* Type EACH of the commands below, in sequence. In each case, you will be moved to a specific area of Skyrim. If the game CTDs at this point, make a note of which statue is associated with that area, then see Statues below.
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> coc ShrineOfAzuraExterior01 (Azura Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> coc FallowstoneCaveEnd (Malacath Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> coc Mehrunes01 (Mehrunes Dagon Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> coc MarkarthTempleofDibella (Dibella Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> coc KilkreathRuinsExterior03 (Meridia Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> coc MarkarthShrineofTalos (Talos Statue)
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> coc WinterholdCollegeExterior (Mage Statue)
 
 
<span style="Color:cyan">Main Menu CTD</span>
 
 
If you crashed at the main menu on load, two main possibilities exist.
 
* You have a missing master. Check your Load Order in MO2, looking for a red triangle next to any file in the list. If these appear, identify the missing master and activate it.
 
* You have not extracted a BSA archive associated with a Skyrim:LE file that you converted earlier. Go through the Mod Page to identify these mods, and verify that you have extracted the BSA files associated with them, if they exist.
 
 
<span style="Color:cyan">Statue CTD</span>
 
 
This CTD is caused by an incorrect renaming or file structure for "Stunning Statues of Skyrim" (SSoS). Review the instructions for this mod on the Mod Page, and verify that all file and path renaming/creation has been done correctly, then reattempt the test.
 
 
== <span style="color:#00FF00">Wrye Bash</span> ==
 
<div style="margin:15px; background-color:red; font-size:1em; font-weight:bold; border-radius:6px; box-shadow: 0px 0px 20px 1px #090149 inset; border:none; text-align:center; padding:20px;">WARNING</div>
 
Before proceeding, read the following important items:
 
* DO NOT run LOOT on your load order after this point. All new plugins created will be added to the end of the Load Order IN THE ORDER THEY ARE GENERATED.
 
* If you are updating your guide install, DISABLE ALL FINISHING LINE MODS (all mods created from this point forward) prior to updating. Run LOOT again once the updates have been entered, then continue with the Finishing Line (as indicated in the Changelogs).
 
* SSE_Terrain_Tamriel.ESM should be disabled in the LEFT PANE at this point. If it is not, deactivate it at this time. DO NOT have this ESM file on unless specifically directed to do so.
 
 
<span style="color:Orange">Idiot Check:</span>
 
Although LOOT provides for the ability to set Bash Tags, user feedback has shown that Wrye Bash does not always recognize tags set in LOOT. Therefore, it is our recommendation that Bash Tags ONLY be set in Wrye Bash itself. Bash Tags can be set by:
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> Select the mod needing the Bash Tag in Wrye Bash.
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> Locate on the right side the Bash tag Window and right-click inside it and list of bash tage should appear. It may already have some tags listed, or may be empty.
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> Select the Tag to be added. Repeat for all required Tags.
 
 
Make sure the following Bash Tags have been set before creating the Bash Patch:

Wrye Bash was originally designed to install and manage mods in the days of TESIV: Oblivion. While we are not using it for this functionality, it has a wide array of tools and features that we will be making use of - specifically, the Bashed Patch, which allows for the merging of leveled lists and the changing of core game settings.
 
 
Creating (or recreating) a Bashed Patch should be done on initial setup and any time you add or remove a mod that uses an ESM/ESP/ESL. Creating the Patch is performed by the following steps:
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> In your Mod Organizer 2 install folder, locate and open the Mods folder.
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> Create a new folder called "Bash Patch".
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> In Mod Organizer 2, press the Executables button and select Wrye Bash.
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> In the 'Create Files in Mod instead of Overwrite' drop down menu, select "Bash Patch".
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> Select "Apply". Close the window.
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> Select Wrye Bash in the Executables drop down menu, then select [Run].
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> After a moment, the Wrye Bash main interface should appear. Scroll to the bottom of the list and locate "Bashed Patch, 0.ESP".
 
<span style="color:cyan">8.</span> Right click on this mod and select "Rebuild Patch". NOTE: This will always appear in this way, even if it is the first time you are building the patch.
 
<span style="color:cyan">9.</span> In the options list that appears, ensure that ONLY the following have checkmarks:
 
* Import Graphics
 
* Import Inventory
 
* Import Keywords
 
* Import Names
 
* Import Stats
 
* Import Text
 
* Tweak Settings
 
* Leveled Lists
 
<span style="color:cyan">10.</span> Click on "Tweak Settings" in the left pane. The following settings are recommended, but can be set otherwise if you so choose. Right-Click on each setting listed to set the value indicated - if the value does not appear, enter it manually via the "Custom" setting:
 
* AI: Max Actors => 50.
 
* Arrow: Speed => 1.4.
 
* Combat: Max Actors => 30.
 
* Crime: Alarm Distance => 1200.
 
* Timescale => 15.
 
<span style="color:cyan">11.</span> Ensure that there are checkmarks next to the following settings:
 
* AI: Max Actors
 
* Arrow: Speed
 
* Combat: Projectile Dodge Fix
 
* Combat: Max Actors
 
* Crime: Alarm Distance
 
* Timescale
 
<span style="color:cyan">12.</span> At the bottom of the interface, click [Build Patch]. This process generally takes about 3 - 5 minutes.
 
<span style="color:cyan">13.</span> Exit Wrye Bash by clicking the X in the upper right of the screen.
 
 
Bashed Patch, 0.ESP should have been automatically added to the Bash Patch Mod. If it does not appear there, Refresh MO2 and/or check in your MO2 Overwrite folder.
 
 
== <span style="color:#00FF00">Mators SMASH</span> ==
 
<span style="color:Orange">Idiot Check:</span>
 
* Ensure "SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.ESM" is deactivated before running SMASH.
 
 
Prior to running Mator Smash for the first time:
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> Navigate to your Mod Organizer 2/Mods folder in Windows Explorer.
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> Create a folder called "SMASH Patch".
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> Launch Mod Organizer 2.
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> Verify that the "SMASH Patch" mod is checked.
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> Launch the Executables dialog.
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> Locate and select Mator SMASH.
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> Locate "Create Files in Mod instead of Overwrite". In the drop down menu select "SMASH Patch".
 
<span style="color:cyan">8.</span> Click Apply.
 
 
Perform the following for initial Smash Patch Generation, and again when updating the guide (when indicated in the Changelog):
 
 
<span style="color:cyan">1.</span> Select Mator's SMASH in the executable selection box and click [Run]. The SMASH main interface should appear.
 
<span style="color:cyan">2.</span> Select 'Skyrim SE' and click [OK].
 
<span style="color:cyan">3.</span> In the popup window, select [OK].
 
<span style="color:cyan">4.</span> Highlight everything from Update.esm down to Bashed Patch, 0.esp (this includes both of those mods as well).
 
<span style="color:cyan">5.</span> Right click and select "Add to Patch".
 
<span style="color:cyan">6.</span> In the popup window, call both fields Smash Patch. Ensure that the field for the file name contains the .ESP extension.
 
<span style="color:cyan">7.</span> Repeat Step 4.
 
<span style="color:cyan">8.</span> Right click => Smash Settings => Smash => "Smash.all"
 
<span style="color:cyan">9.</span>Using the same process as step 8 above, locate the following files and set their Smash setting to "Smash.ForceAll":
 
NOTE: These files are located at or near the bottom of the list:
 
* RealisticWaterTwo.esp
 
* LOTD Patches Merged.esp
 
* MLU Patches Merged.esp
 
* Animals Merged.esp
 
* OMEGA CACO Patches Merged.esp
 
* NPC Retexture Merge SSE.esp
 
* ELE Merged.esp
 
* Lexy's LOTD Consistency Patches Merged.esp
 
* Lexy's LoTD SE OMEGA - Conflict Resolution.esp
 
* OMEGA NPC Retexture - Conflict Resolution.esp
 
* Bashed Patch, 0.esp
 
NOTE: These files are located between roughly halfway and 3/4 of the way down the list:
 
* MLU.esp
 
* PrvtI_HeavyArmory.esp
 
* Ordinator - Perks of Skyrim.esp
 
* CLARALUX SSE.esp
 
* CLARALUX Patches Merged.esp
 
<span style="color:cyan">10.</span> Click the Hammer Icon at the top of the screen to build the Smash Patch.
 
<span style="color:cyan">11.</span> Once the build is completed, exit Smash and verify the mod is active in the left pane and appears at the bottom of the right. If it does not, Refresh MO2 and recheck.
