    Use to sort your boot order if you've installed any mods. Ensures all dependencies have been met.

  2. (NMM) Nexus Mod Manager

    This is the tool to install and edit the boot order of mods, unless you want to do this manually...

  3. (SKSE) Skyrim Script Extender on Steam

    Install via Steam. Required by mods which change gameplay or UI elements. Most notable is SkyUI.

    Tool for cleaning up Dirty Edits. Make sure to do this for the master files after installing mods.
