 Bijin All in One-SSE

         A merged ESP, that combines all the features of: Bijin Warmaidens - NPCs - Wives - Serana\Valerica by rxkx22  into a single, up-to-date, and improved ESP. More than a merged esp, but also incorporates numerous updates, bug-fixes, along with extra features not found in the original mods. The goal, to minimize and streamline both your load order, and ease the management of Bijin NPCs , while offering improvements and updates that complement the vanilla game. 


Current Release: Bijin AIO 2018

Versions - Choose one file, from either MAIN, or the any of the supported mods in optionals. The usage of the optionals is exactly the same as the main files. And no, if using the optionals you don't have to install any 'main' Bijin AIO first. The 'optionals' are functionally identical to the mains as far as installing them.

 -Bijin AIO 2018        NPCs Managed (45) The 'standard' Bijin AIO version

 -Bijin AIO-SV 2018  NPCS Managed (47)  AIO + Seranaholic and Valerica.

-Bijin Alternate Frea - Iona. UNP only.
Two older, but superior, iterations of Frea (v3.0), and Iona (v2.9). These versions may be quite hard to find and afaik, this is only place they officially exist as a download. A conventional mod file with all the meshes and textures necessary unlike the AIO files. See instructions below for installation alongside Bijin AIO. This file can be installed entirely on its own, and does not require Bijin AIO 2018, or any original Bijin mods.  It will overwrite any newer Bijin Iona and Frea's in any copy of Bijin Warmaidens currently installed in your load order. 

-Optimized body meshes for your AIO NPCs. - Recommended. See MISC for additional optimized mesh resources.

Full and seamless AIO compatibility provided for: (Chose One). Install directly or simply overwrite your existing AIO or SV esp. 
-Immersive College of Winterhold. 
-Immersive Weapons.


Additional Features
-Includes: Shut up Mjoll (all versions). Reduces her endless chatter somewhat, making her actually tolerable as a follower.
-All three versions of Legate Rikke have been added and set with Bijin features.
-Some NPCs max levels have been boosted to varying degrees, to make them more viable at higher levels. 
-Most of the recuitable NPCs will now benefit from worn enchantments, similar to the player.
-All werewolf \ vampire transformation fixes included.

Location
 -Wherever fine-looking Bijin Ladies are to be found.

Requirements
-Bijin Warmaidens SE v3.1.1+  
-Bijin NPC SE v1.2.1+
-Bijin Wives SE v1.1.2
-Seranaholic v1.6 * 
-Valerica 1.7
*
-Seranaholic SSE (by bchick3 & elrizzo )*
-USSEP 4.1.3b+

-Skyrim Special Edition

All Bijin Mods covered by AIO are now available for SSE. If you are still using any of the skyrim 32 bit versions, upgrade to the most current SSE versions for SSE. Using Skyrim Classic assets will result in graphical errors in game.

*Note:  Unlike WarMaidens, NPCs, and Wives, the Seranaholic and Valerica mods can  be utilized in SSE using either the original Skyrim classic versions OR the converted version by Bchick3. Both versions work equally well in SSE. Due to the subtle, or not-so subtle differences in Serena's appearance between the numerous versions that exist, feel free to use whatever iteration you wish. SV, was built using Seranaholic v1.6 and Valerica 1.7 (classic). Naturally, you will get best results using those but to restate it, AIO does not care where you get your (bijin) Serana \ Valerica textures from.

Installation for BIjin 2018 AIO's. Install in the order listed below.

Bijin AIO SSE is completely safe to update, add mid-game or remove. It uses no scripts and consumes only the resources of a single, standard esp.

See JamesMC's installation video for Bijin AIO, under Video tab if you are having trouble. 
Note: This video is somewhat out of date now since it refers to using the Skyrim 32 assets, which is no longer necessary. Still, it may provide some assistance if you are experiencing difficulties using this resource.


1) Install ALL the necessary Bijin mods for your selected version. Choose All in One installation options, along with any additional graphics options you wish. 
Bijin installer options do not impact AIO 2018 in any way. USE Fomod capable installers only. Do not attempt to install Bijin mods using the SSE built-in mod manager, or manually!

Skyrim Special Edition - SV version
Install Serana-Valerica . Skyrim Classic OR the new SSE Seranaholic\Valerica conversion by bcchick3. 

2) Install the Bijin AIO SSE file of your choice.

3) Install optimized Mesh updates, yes, from here. - recommended. Allow these to overwrite when prompted.

**The SV update in MISC is intended for Bijin Skyrim Classic versions of Serana\Valerica only. Those are not needed if using the SSE Seranaholic and Valerica by bcchick3. So, if you are using all SSE serana\valerica, you do NOT need(or want), the SV mesh update from here.
You WILL want the appropriate file for your installed body type offered  in  AIO's UPDATES section
.

A further note re Bijin SV meshes(though the same idea applies to the AIO UNP-CBBE as well). Those are NOT version dependent in any way and installing them will always 'update' the meshes Bijin NPCs use. In the case of Skyrim classic SV meshes, it hardly matters if you pulling your seranaholic\valerica from ver 1.0 or ver 1000. That file will always update those NPCs meshes for SSE.

4) Optional: If using the Frea and Iona alternate file (UNP only). Install this LAST. Allow all overwrites. Includes optimized UNP meshes for SSE.
 Leave its ESP ENABLED, and placed BELOW the AIO file.

5) Once all the Bijin Mods are installed, uncheck (disable) ALL* bijin esps, except for the AIO of course. You can delete the Bijin ESPs from /data if you wish, or keep them inactive, either will suffice. Do NOT remove or alter, or overwrite any installed Bijin textures or meshes. 

The following ESPs are to be disabled\deleted. 
Bijin Warmaidens.esp
Bijin Wives.esp
Bijin NPCs.esp
Serana.esp (SV)
Valerica.esp (SV)

*Only the the Bijin AIO-SSE esp needs to be active when finished. The Alternate Frea-Iona ESP, is an exception, and must be left enabled.

NOTE: The Bijin installer has an option called All in One as well, which may be confusing to some. That file, despite its name, is quite out of date. Nor does it offer the same functionality and updates as the AIO 2018. It is not compatible with AIO 2018. 

UnInstall
-Simply delete /data/Bijin AIOxxx.esp or uninstall using your Mod Manager.
-Re-enable the Bijin esps, or reinstall all bijin mods in the standard manner.

Compatibility

Bijin AIO will conflict with any other mod(s) that changes the same NPCs as Bijins. Any mods that modify the same NPC's will likely result in graphical errors-you have been warned. While it should be obvious that competing NPC makeover mods are not compatible with Bijin's, Some people more than you would think,  still seem surprised when they learn that this in fact, ...true

Bijin AI0-SSE is intended to be used with ALL Bijin NPCS enabled(that's what All-in-One means). 

USSEP
-Bijin AIO includes all current USSEP updates. Something the original Bijin do not(always). There are no conflicts between Vanilla\USSEP and the Bijin NPCs as far as their expected behavior, stats etc, in game goes. The few(additional) changes I have introduced, are modest and are intended to complement and enhance the vanilla game, while not overpowering or unbalancing it.
 
Amazing follower Tweaks SE & AIO SV. -See article for eye fix issue you may encounter with Serana's eyes.

Scoped Bows - Changes Annekke and Aela. Recommend  using the vanilla replacer and NOT the main file.

Any mod that changes any of the 47 npcs covered by AIO will create some form of incompatibility or another. Whether the issue is minor, major or somewhere in between, is impossible to determine.  Load and install order pretty much always determines what Skyrim uses. IE last thing installed and lowest load order pretty much always 'wins'.

Mator smash


This tool is specifically designed to merge disparate mods features together to  manage conflicting mods in a seamless way. A discussion about how to use Mator Smash is beyond the scope of this page.  See Gamer Poets video and visit the MS page, for more information.  If used properly,  that tool can make Bijin AIO compatible with conflicting mods. You can use any of the AIO ESPs from here as the starting point for a Mator Smash patch or your own custom merge patch. Use them as you see fit.

Merged patches.

While Bijin AIO 2018 provides ESPs for selected mods to build in seamless compatibility, there are limits to what can be offered. To make you own copy of Bijin AIO compatible with MULTIPLE mods, requires merging the features of the mods you wish, with Bijin AIO. This requires knowledge of SSEedit, how the game handles its data, and so on. You can make your own with SSEedit, or use the Mator Smash utility mention above. It is specifically designed to help manage and merge conflicting mods features to produce a merged esp tailored to the results users seek. It is being actively worked on and supported.
By all accounts, it is superior to Wrye Bash for conflict resolution.

Dialogue overhauls seem to warrant their own little sub-section so here it is.

-Follower Commentary Overhaul SE - FCO -  Not recommended(at all).  This mod is yet (another) so called 'port', conversion, of a mod that was buggy , obsolete and essentially broken in classic long before someone thought they were providing a much needed public service by bringing it to SSE. Well, now you can enjoy all its broken features here in SSE thanks to a yet another, direct-to-SSE conversion that addresses exactly none of its original flaws.  

-Relationship Dialogue Overhaul
-The above mod (RDO) is: Not recommenddue to the significant  amount of unsolicited content and features and bloat, that have nothing  whatsoever to do with overhauling dialogue. Yet the mod is misleadingly marketed by its creator, as a 'dialogue overhaul'. If it were focused solely on what its name implies, it would likely be quite good. However, this is far from being the case.

Until someone makes a modern, focused dialogue overhaul for SSE, instead of just converting buggy old content from classic, I suggest you have your Bijiners speaking vanilla until (IF), this situation changes.

Installing other mods that modify same NPCs as Bijin AIO. Want to use a different Serana or Valerica? No problem

 If your are a moderately experienced mod user, simply install the specific NPC you wish after Bijin AIO, and load it below Bijin AIO. Allow any over-writes of textures and meshes when prompted. The rules for this are the same as any other mod. The most recent files, and lowest ordered ESP and overwrites etc you install or allow, is the one the game will utilize. However, If you mismatch esps, and assets such as meshes and textures, you will get (user) generated errors in game. Using a different version of say, Serana, while still using AIO SV is, quite doable and requires no special skyrim voodoo to do. What IS required, that you have a good grasp of how BGS games handles their data. You also have to know what is going on in your install as well. If you mess things up, you can always un-install the mods involved and start over again.  Any mod that changes even one Bijin NPC will cause conflicts of one sort or another.
