What is SkyTweak?
SkyTweak is an in game menu with literally hundreds of game balancing options.
None of SkyTweak is hardcoded, so it has essentially no compatibility issues with other mods.
Use it to fine tune your mod load order to exactly what you need it to be.
SkyUI Version 4.0+
SKSE Version 1.7.2+
FISS Version 1.21+ (optional)
SkyUILib Version 1 (pre-packaged)
FISS is a tool that lets me save data to an XML file.
Which in turn gives you the ability to transfer SkyTweak settings in between save files.
Without it you have to redo your SkyTweak settings every new game you start.
SkyUILib allows SkyTweak to name your save files and XML files.
A copy of SkyUILib is pre-packaged with SkyTweak if you're too lazy to download it yourself.
SkyTweak edits settings via script when you load a save file.
This means SkyTweak can and will override settings from other mods.
However, SkyTweak's settings will be identical to that of your load order until you make changes.
Additionally, you may use the re-import option to tell SkyTweak to scan the settings of your load order once again.
If you run mods that change gamesettings dynamically over the course of the game, you will want to use SkyTweak's "Save and Exit" options to exit the game, instead of exiting in a traditional way. This will give SkyTweak time to record the updated settings before exiting.
It is possible for SkyTweak to rollback your settings if a mod changes these settings dynamically throughout the course of the game.
To prevent these rollbacks, save the game using the save and exit buttons in SkyTweak, instead of exiting normally.
This will allow SkyTweak to record your settings before exiting, preventing a Rollback.
All Settings are 0
This happens when you import a FISS file that doesn't exist or was from an old (5.8 or earlier) version of SkyTweak.
Use the Re-Import option to reset everything back to defaults or just correctly import a FISS file.
SkyTweak won't appear
There's a guide on how to deal with this in the articles page.
This mod event will instruct SkyTweak to scan for changes in settings.
If you have a mod that updates gamesettings dynamically throughout the course of the game, and you implement these pings correctly, you can circumvent the need for users to exit the game with SkyTweak's save and exit features.
