Thank you so much!
Our pleasure. DI and I have been helping people play these games now going on 11+ years. Yeah.... Wow. LOL
Install mods that do NOT use the TSL patcher first, and know that you will have to make sure that any other non-TSL patcher you install are compatible with each other - the major mods often have this discussed in their ReadMe files.
Then, you install your patcher mods. The TSL Patcher, thank the Maker (stoffe), was built to update 2da files so that mods would play nicer with each other.
The patcher cannot "merge" scripts that use the same name, and so there still can be incompatibility. Also, dialog files can be fought over with mods, also an issue. But at least following this method of installation, your heads, bodies and outfits should be proper for all the NPCs and the items vanilla and custom.
