Installing Requiem (version 3.2.0 and older)

This short guide will show you how to set up Requiem properly using either Nexus Mod Manager (NMM), Vortex or Mod Organizer 2 (MO). Manual installations of Requiem and Mod Organizer 1 are not officially supported.

A new game is mandatory

When you install Requiem the first time, you must start a new game. The changes made by this mod are too complex to be applied mid-game. There are no exceptions to this rule, Requiem will send you back to the main menu if you try to use it with an existing savegame.

In addition to installing Requiem like an ordinary mod, you will also need to generate a SkyProc patch for your personal mod-setup. A SkyProc patch is a Skyrim plugin which is generated automatically by predefined rules from the content found in your load order. As a simple example, one function of our SkyProc patcher is to bring the weapon damage and armor ratings from your favorite weapon and armor mods to Requiem's level.

First Time Requiem?

If this is your first time you're installing Requiem, we strongly recommend you to start with a small load order. Requiem works quite different than the base game and you should get to know our mod the way it was intended to be at first. You should avoid using additional combat or gameplay changing mods for your first Requiem run. (Graphics improvements are of course fine.) Once you have familiarized yourself with Requiem, you can expand your load order to customize the experience to your preferences.

Instructions

  1. download and install all requirements
  2. download the desired Requiem version from Nexus Mods
  3. follow the guide for your mod management tool
  4. enjoy Requiem!

Mod Organizer 1.x is not supported

Mod Organizer 1 uses a 32bit virtual file-system and thus cannot launch 64bit Java runtimes. Java 8 was the last Java release that provided a 32bit version, but has reached its end of life in January 2019 and no longer receives any security updates. We thus strongly recommend to use Mod Organizer 2 instead which can launch 64bit executables.
