About this mod

Brings Ethereal Elven Overhaul (EEO) into full modernity, with fixes from the last few years (since the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch). For a STEP build, use "Ethereal Elven Overhaul and AI Overhaul Patch for USLEP and STEP" instead.

Permissions and credits
This is a patch-of-a-patch to bring "Ethereal Elven Overhaul" (EEO) into full modernity, by preserving full compatibility with "Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch" (USLeEP or USLEP), plus applying some later-discovered fixes like "Aringoth Race Fix" and "Vampire No Dirt Tintmasks", and two error corrections for the original EEO USLeEP patch, and some typos USLeEP missed.

This comes as either an add-on patch, or a replacement for the plugin ethereal_elven_overhaul.esp.

Users of a STEP Guide build of Skyrim LE, or anyone else who is using "AI Overhaul", should not use this version but should instead get "Ethereal Elven Overhaul and AI Overhaul Patch for USLEP and STEP".

In Detail



This requires (in order of installation):

1. All three DLCs: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn, plus Update.esm and a current version of the game (v1.9.36.0, or later, if a later version ever comes, which is unlikely).  USLeEP requires all of these.

2. "Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch" (USLeEP, USLEP)

3. The original "Ethereal Elven Overhaul" mod:
My patch is compatible with EEO options like "High-Res Texture Pack" and "NPC Face Tint Files" (but do not install "Freckled Face Texture for UNP" unless you want all females of all races to have low-res freckles!)

4. The Dawnguard- and Dragonborn-patched version with its additional resources:
(get the main file there and let it overwrite ethereal_elven_overhaul.esp). My patch is compatible with the "Jenassa and Irileth Original Warpaint" option there (recommended, or some dialogue will not make sense).  In Mod Organizer 2, have it all merge directly into "Ethereal Elven Overhaul", not replace it, nor install as a separate "mod" for MO2 purposes.

5. "Ethereal Elven Overhaul - USLEEP Update":
Let it overwrite ethereal_elven_overhaul.esp again if it wants to.  In MO2, the FOMOD will install this as a new "mod" by itself and not merge it.

6. This patch goes last, among these mods, in installation order and mod load order.  Let it overwrite ethereal_elven_overhaul.esp if you're asked, in a manual install. In MO2, install to a new "mod" in left pane; do not merge into EEO (or the USLeEP Patch above will just override it).

Compatibility Limitations of EEO



When you understand all these limitations, then install this like any other mod, and place it properly in your load order.  As of this writing, LOOT is not aware of it, so you may have to manually tweak its position in your load order to comply with the above compatibility requirements.

You have two options:

* Replacement ESP:  RECOMMENDED.  A new merged ethereal_elven_overhaul.esp to overwrite the old one yet again.  In MO2, because EEO's USLeEP Patch FOMOD installs as a new "mod" in MO2's left pane, do not tell MO2 to merge this new post-USLeEP version into EEO.  That will just result in an updated EEO that gets replaced by the stand-alone USLeEP patch anyway.  Instead, install this new post-USLeEP patch as its own "mod" in MO2, after both EEO and its USLeEP patch.

* Stand-alone patch:  A new ESP to add, which will consume a mod slot if not merged.  Recommended only for testing (it's easy to disable to revert back to the USLeEP patch version of EEO).

  Otherwise you're going to have to use the Construction Kit to re-export the head of every single elf who has already been loaded into the game, to not get the "grey face" bug.  Google for how to do that, if you're a stubborn glutton for punishment.

Permissions and Credits

I impose no restrictions of any kind on this patch.  EEO is by nuska, who released it without modification or asset-use restrictions.  Separate patches for USkP and for DG and DB were created in 2013-2014 by thordir, without restriction and with the specific intent that they be improved further. Sakr3d created the first USLeEP patch for EEO, based on thordir's separate ones.  Trilioth had also produced a set of separate ones; I don't know if any of Sakr3d's combination work drew upon them.  All these authors receive an equal share of the Mod Reward Points this new patch will earn.
