Now that the unofficial patches have had to be pulled down from the Workshop, folks are rightly wondering where to get them. Although we had it posted on each entry for the entire month of October, not everyone will have seen that. So here's where things stand:
Due to technical reasons (explained here: http://afkmods.iguanadons.net/index.php?/topic/3738-unofficial-patch-esm-conversion/
) the files can no longer be uploaded because of restrictions in place in the Creation Kit. These files will need to be acquired from one of our alternate download sites:AFK Mods[afkmods.iguanadons.net]Skyrim Nexus[www.nexusmods.com]TES Alliance[tesalliance.org]Dark Creations[www.darkcreations.org]The Assimilation Lab[www.theassimilationlab.com]
<statement laying blame at Bethesda's feet removed here>
So yeah. I've just been informed that the size limit issue is in fact Valve's fault and not Bethesda's at all. Apparently the CK *DOES* in fact query for the allowed file size and is being told by the Workshop interface that 100MB is the maximum allowed file size limit per mod.
Hopefully this isn't too much of an inconvenience for folks and I'm sorry we had to do this but we were left with no choice. Leaving stale unsupported versions of the patches up would have been bad for everyone.Errors During NMM Installation
If you are using NMM to install the updated patches and get the following error:
BOSS_API_ERROR_INVALID_ARGS: Master files must load before other plugins. The mod was not installed.
You need to perform the following steps:
- Uninstall and delete all the Unofficial patches in NMM.
- Exit NMM.
- Launch NMM again.
- Download and install all of the updated Unofficial patches.
- Run BOSS to sort your load order.
