Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) is to Skyrim the same as a high performance carburetor is to a 57 Chevy. It is the heart of mods… Not all mods need SKSE but those with heart do.. something to keep in mind 🙂
SKSE was developed by the following people, Ian Patterson, Stephen Abel and Paul Connelly (ianpatt, behippo and scruggsywuggsy the ferret)
SKSE can be found by going here
You have several options to install SKSE, I recommend using the SKSE installer.. it’s fast and easy to use.
Just download and install but Wait! You’ll probably get this –
Which will lead to this
So just do this
Since MO will be controlling SKSE for you, then you won’t need the desktop short cut so uncheck it and then install. Once SKSE is installed then close it.
Now your Skyrim main folder will look like this, see the SKSE loader? Of course you do 🙂
Now that SKSE is installed let’s get it to work with Mod Organizer. Go to your Skyrim/data folder and cut the folder called “scripts” see image below.
Now navigate to Mod Organizermods and paste the scripts folder into the mods folder. Look at the pic below.
Now you’ll need to link SKSE Launcher to MO, no worries very easy to do. Just click on the green gears in the picture below and MO will walk you through the rest.
Now in MO you’ll see SKSE Launcher in the drop down menu
Next add SKSE to the toolbar so you can see how that works.
