Help with Mods
I downloaded a Mod from YT (Not on Steam anymore) and need help with installing. I dont want to use the Nexus Mod Manager. Here is what I tried:
-Extracted it into my Steam-Skyrim-Folder: Nothing happened
-Dragged into my Steam-Skyrim-DATA-Folder: Nothing happened
-Dragged it into my Steam-Skyrim-Skyrim-Folder:Nothi- I think you know now
Anybody who can help me with this?

Could you describe the folder structure of the mod?

Normally for most mods you just need to drag and drop it in the ".../common/skyrim" folder to manually install them, but sometimes this isn't true, if they for example didn't have any "data" folder at all, and just uploaded an .esp file and took it for granted you would place it in the ".../common/skyrim/data" folder yourself, instead of ".../common/skyrim". Or, they added all the folders and files into yet another folder with the name of the mod, that isn't really supposed to be extracted at all (you are expected to go inside the folder, and THEN extract all of its content there. Or they have done something completely different than that. Looking through the folder structure is therefore important when you install mods manually.

Ok,I dragged it into the /common/skyrim Folder but im not pretty sure if its ok now... Take a look at the Download (Klick on Watch on Youtube on the right for the Download-Link)

It's just like in the second example I gave above, the "main" folder isn't supposed to be extracted at all. It's just a folder with the name of the mod. Which means, that when the game is looking throught your "data" folder for mods, it goes through the usual install path (steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data). It won't look through every single folder on your computer in search after mods, so since you have now extracted the whole file you downloaded, it will NOT look through your current path for the mod, which is ...steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/->nameofmodhere-</data.

What you do in this particular case is:
1) Unrar the file you just downloaded
2) ENTER the folder named "Dishonored lord protector set".
3) THEN you should see the folder named "data". THIS is the folder you need to put in your skyrim installation folder.
4) Run the skyrim laucher and make sure the .esp file is activated in the "data files" section, just like usual when you install mods manually.

I have gripes with all these god damn "managers" we see these days as well, but I was actually pleasantly surprised by the Nexus Mod Manager. It works really well despite being a little forced down your throat. You only mentioned that you 'didn't want to use it', so I assume you have no external reason not to, which leads me to recommend trying it.

I would use the Nexus Mod Manager if I COULD... He wont open for Skyrim because he cant get the Permission or sth :( And I dont wanna watch a 15-Minute-Video for installing it :/

but you're willing to spend hours/days trying to install it without knowing how?

Actually, I would highly recommend using Wrye Bash or Mod Organizer over Nexus Mod Manager. Sure, it's simple, but it's oversimplifed and when you are serious into modding, you'll need something that will keep clear track of what mod you installed and in what order.
