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]
With the file size restrictions removed in the last game + CK update, there remains one last obstacle that needs to be overcome before we can upload the patches here again. Files flagged as an ESM currently cannot be uploaded. THIS restriction is on Bethesda's end of things since it's the CK that is refusing to allow the upload. Until this is corrected, there is still nothing we can do.
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
