you cannot deactivate a DLC once the game is started - You have to start over to do that.

Load Order - Dawnguard, 1st and Hearthfire 2nd.

I would suggest that it is a MOD - and yes it can take a while a few days to weeks or even longer (Depending on how much you play, for a bad mod to screw up your game.)

How many mods do you have going?

None currently active

but did you start the game over when you deactivated them? You will have game issues if you did not.

Yes i have tried.

In starting over - I mean - since you tried everything else it would seem - UNINSTALL SKYRIM and Re-install from scratch? Do not load mods but just the DLC's in this order: Dawnguard - Hearthfire - Dragonborn. Then see if the game plays?

@ Flakjak That didn't work either

as jjb-54 said delete local content, make sure uninstall does not leave any folders, in my documents or the steam common folder. just run a search for skyrim, delete any thing left.

Do -> NOT <- even use any of the "UNOFFICIAL .... Patches.esp' ... NOTHING but the Skyrim and the 3 DLC's and even turn off the HighRez Texture Pack 1-2-3

How long until i can start putting mods on again
jjb-54 1 Dec 13, 2013 @ 8:36pm 
does the game work without the mods?
hchihouse04 Dec 13, 2013 @ 9:55pm 
Without mods i can see castle volkiar from northwatch keep but cant get to it. Ice water jetty isnt there and there is no map marker

house04 -

Did you do a complete UNINSTALL OF SKYRIM - delete all references to the prior game and restart the game with the only option you should have: NEW, and thus have to create a New Player?

You cannot use a prior saved game - everything has to be FROM SCRATCH - NEW.

NO mods loaded - just your Dawnguard and Hearthfires only.

okay - so what specifically is going on?

I need specifics, so as to better understand what is going on with your NEW install of Skyrim and ONLY the DLC's loaded.
