    Load order and YOU!

    Hi guys,

    So let me clarify the load order for you a little bit. It really isn't very confusing really - but the problem is that everyone wants to use every single mod in one great big sandwich and they all want to just click "Download with NMM" and not really know what they are really doing.

    Anyway, here is some advice on the load order!

    Try to load RLO as low in the load order as possible. This will ensure you get all our lighting changes and nothing interferes with it. It should also help player house mods to get our imagespaces if they use default lighting.

    For those using only RLO here's the load order :

    Player Home mods
    Unofficial Skyrim Patches
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Illuminated Spells.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dungeons.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Brighter Dungeons.esp*
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dawnguard.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Minor Cities and Towns Interiors.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Exteriors.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Interiors.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Weathers.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Weathers - Brighter Nights.esp*
    RLO - Adaptive Interiors Vanilla Weathers Patch.esp**
    RLO - Major City Exteriors - No Guard Torches.esp

    For those using Climates of Tamriel here's the load order :

    DO NOT USE Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Adaptive Interiors Vanilla Weathers Patch with COT, it won't do anything!

    ClimatesOfTamriel.esm
    Player Home mods
    Unofficial Skyrim Patches
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Illuminated Spells.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dungeons.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Brighter Dungeons.esp*
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dawnguard.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Minor Cities and Towns Interiors.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Exteriors.esp
    Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Interiors.esp
    RLO - Major City Exteriors - No Guard Torches.esp
    ClimatesOfTamriel - VannillaNights.esp (whatever your lvl is)
    ClimatesOfTamriel - DLC weathers ONLY.

    DO NOT USE ClimatesOfTamriel - Interiors OR dungeon esp's - (any version warm or otherwise) - This one should be ticked-off (not active)

    ***************************************************************
    DO NOT USE RLO + ELFX TOGETHER. THEY ARE NO LONGER COMPATIBLE.

    RLO for ELFX esp's were given to anamorfus to edit, so use one or the other.

    I think you can use the meshes from ELFX with RLO but I will not support it or be responsible if problems happen. I heard it is possible, but I don't know much about the meshes from that mod.

    ***************************************************************

    Player home mods, Lanterns of Skyrim, Claralux, URWL etc should all be loaded before RLO.

    Try to load RLO toward the bottom of your load order just to be safe.

    Hope this helps!


    * - Optional file
    ** - Do no tuse adaptive interiors with RLO Weather modules.
