Step 19 – Patches

PATCHES

19.1 Conflict Resolution

Download and install the VISUALS Patch Pack from the guide's mod page here.

The FOMOD will guide you through the installation.

19.2 Master Patch Merge

In order to save plugin slots, we will merge all patches together. This excludes two patches that are already ESP-FE plugins and thus do not count towards the ESP / ESM limit.
