About This File

  AFK Weye-MTC-Region Revive Patches

 


A set of patch files which provide compatibility for AFK Weye, MTC Expanded Villages,
and Region Revive Lake Rumare. Features some built-in compatibility with other mods
as well. Giving the potential to use eight Weye mods at once.


Description

Weye is arguably the single most heavily modded area in the entire game. And for good
reason too, the vanilla town of Weye is little more than an inn and a farm house. A quick
search can easily turn up several dozen mods for this spot. From simple player homes to
full village expansions complete with quests. 

Unfortunately most of them do not play nicely together and can have nasty conflicts. Such
as large rips in the landscape, buried and/or floating objects, broken path grids,etc. While
there were a few patches on the market for various combinations of Weye mods, they all
required sacrificing bits and pieces of the mods in order to work. Not an ideal solution.

So I went to work creating a set of patches that will allow simultaneous use of the three
most popular Weye mods I know of, while keeping all mod content intact. Namely AFK_Weye, 
MTC Expanded Villages, and Region Revive: Lake Rumare. The end result transforms Weye 
into a bustling community with vendors, shops offering services, farms, ships, quests, and a
large mansion which can be yours.     


Details

There are three progressively larger main patch files included here. They are all created from
the same template but have minor differences. Choose ONLY ONE. Using more than one at
the same time will cause duplicates and lag. 

AFK-MTC-RR Patch: The basic patch provides fixes for AFK_Weye, MTC Expanded Villages,
and Region Revive Lake Rumare.

House of Healing Patch: Same as the basic version, but adds compatibility for House of Healing.

Weye Overhaul Patch: Same as the basic version, but adds compatibility for House of Healing
 and Oblivion Farmer's Market.

There are also two optional files. One is a replacer .esp for Akaviri Imports which makes that mod
compatible with any of the three main patches. The other is an addon patch for Colourwheels Sexy
Oblivion Overhaul made by Nephenee13. It will only work alongside the basic main file. 

Another available option is an addon for Imperial City Suburbs. It should be noted that none of these
patches have any direct conflict with ICS. But Region Revive itself does. I have created a patch for
this (ICSuburbs-Weye Patch) which can be found at The One Stop Patch Shop. In the Downloads
section, packaged in with the "Recent Files".


Built in Compatibility

All three of the main file patches have been designed to work with Akaviri Imports, Ruined Tail's Tale,
and now Clocks of Cyrodiil for the Wawnet Inn interior. None of these mods is required. I have simply
adjusted object placement, landscaping, and path grids to allow simultaneous use of these mods should
you choose to do so. Depending on your choice of plugins...you are now potentially able to combine up
to eight Weye mods at the same time...conflict free.

In order to use Akaviri Imports you will need the replacer esp that is included here under optional files.
Install the full Akaviri Imports mod as you normally would, then install the replacer esp and allow it to
overwrite the original. Use of Ruined Tail's Tale will require the RTT Weye Relocation Patch. 


Location

Village of Weye (and ONLY the village of Weye). Any other areas edited by these mods is outside the 
scope of this project.


Requirements

Oblivion patched to 1.2.0416
AFK_Weye
MTC Expanded Villages
Region Revive - Lake Rumare
House of Healing at Weye
Oblivion Farmers Market
Ruined Tails Tale
RTT Weye Relocation Patch (Arthmoor pulled the Nexus page, waiting for him to upload it here)
Akaviri Imports


Install

1. Extract to your Oblivion Data folder either manually or using the mod manager of your choice.

2. Set load order and play. 

It is advisable to leave the Weye area before applying any patches. Due to the extensive changes 
throughout the surrounding area, activating while in town may trap you inside a building or other
structure. Because many buildings and doors had to be moved, it is also advisable to perform a 
clean save before using a save game which had any of these mods installed. Failure to do so may 
result in doors showing up in their previous locations. 


Load Order

Suggest using BOSS to set load order. All of these files are already recognized.
Specific Load Order instructions are included with each read-me file as well. 


Compatibility

Compatibility is assured ONLY with the mods mentioned above. Anything else added into Weye will most
likely result in a conflict of some kind.

What's New in Version 1.3

Released

Updated the optional "Colourwheels Sexy Oblivion Overhaul" patch. Updates were performed on the main files over the years. And tbh I simply never even thought about this optional file. I never used CSO. As a result of that neglect, a land rip at one cell border was present when using this patch. Since Nephenee13 hasn't been active for years, and the patch was loaned to me, I've now updated it. Reconfigured the landscape and path grids in the one cell surrounding the CSO tower. Now it syncs up with the Weye patch it is mastered to.

Recommended Comments

You replied (then immediately locked the Nexus comment page): "You really should do a little trouble shooting before posting comments like that. I just loaded up the Colourwheels patch to check things out. The door leading into the tower works just fine. Went through both ways twice. Not sure what is wrong on your end but the patch didn't break the doors.
However, it does need an update. I've updated my patches a few times since Nephenee gave me that CSO patch. As a result there is a land tear caused by some of the changes I made in the main Weye patches. The CSO patch was never adjusted to account for those changes. What can I say? I never used CSO so never even looked at that patch prior to now. That issue aside, things function just as they should."

Wellsir, I troubleshot it for 3 hours straight. I don't appreciate the snarkiness, fyi. Each time a patch like this is added, in order to test it properly, one must select a load order, bash it in, start a new game or make a clean save, check it in game, if it fails retry load order, bash again, etc, etc, etc. I started with a new game, the door problem existed, no angle of view would allow it to be opened, tons of npcs piled up trying to get in. I tried many load orders, clean bash patches, save games, new games, etc, no luck. If that isn't troubleshooting an issue, I don't know what is. Doesn't work. Good for you that you quickly tried it and it worked (hard to believe you installed the entire CSO mod, which changes an enormous amount of things, probably not realizing that BOSS has it wrong in the load order (it needs to go near last or many of its changes will be lost, esp. by OCO), but whatever. One thing I *didn't* do was put the patch after Radiant AI, which probably accounted for some of those npc's ai getting screwed up in that heavily modded area, but I'll try that next. So obviously it's a patch that's not gonna work with certain mods/orders/whatever. Perhaps if one loads CSO where BOSS puts it and has a very light mod list, maybe it might work, if one doesn't care about losing most of its changes, which defeats the point of using it at all. All I know is that with an otherwise nearly perfect install & load order, the door was inoperable which caused npc issues.

Also I noticed a lot of npcs in that whole Weye area did nothing but walk into walls. It's complex stuff with Better Cities, Radiant AI, UL, CSO, and all the patches for that area. Kudos for your efforts to try to fix it. I think it's worth it to go through to trouble of trying to get them all loaded & configured correctly, but I may change my mind since I'm not sure anyone can do it without several issues creeping through.

Posted an updated version of the optional Colourwheels patch. Optional files are now also in a separate "optional" DL. No other changes at this time. That said, I will most likely update everything else sooner rather than later. So be on the lookout for that. This is one of my oldest set of compatibility patches. They do still work just fine as is. But looking at them with a more experienced set of eyes...there are things that could be done better. Nuff said.

Thanks Allister. I may take you up on that just so I can update this series. I don't seem to have a copy stashed away. As you probably know, that patch used to be found on a nexus page with several of Arthmoor's other misc patches. I've approached Arthmoor regards uploading the file here, but don't want to be a nag about it lol. He'll get around to it eventually.

Thanks for sharing that. Now I can update once I clear some other things out of the way. Already aware of layton's patch :). I was the first to comment on it. Already linked.

To anyone using Colourwheels who wants to use this patch: It makes the bank door unusable. NPCs will stack up outside since they can't get in; how many depends on other mods you may use & their AI. In my case, a lot. You have 2 options:

1) if you use this patch, push your way through the crowd to get to the door, click on it, & use the console to disable it. There's another door behind it that doesn't work either (it's not meant to be activated), but that's ok for this fix. Then use the console again to "unlock" the portal at the bottom of the steps. Most NPCs will then go down the steps & use the magic portal to get in the bank. But some won't, including a CSO NPC named "Tommy" who'll just walk into the door endlessly.

2) Don't use the patch. The bank door will work & NPCs will go in & out, which is proof that the patch is disabling it. Problem is, w/o the patch, the buildings conflict and the steps are just barely there. Most NPCs will use it, but some just can't find their way to them right away and there will be a few who get hung up in the corner of the adjacent building until they find a way to get on the bank steps. Probably better to not use the patch, because the AI of the NPCs seems to have them using the front door. If they use the portal it's possible they could get stuck inside, or in the case of "Tommy", stuck outside.

Thanks for the patches!
One question though: do I need to clean Akaviri Imports.esp, MTCExpandedVillages.esp, Region Revive - Lake Rumare.esp and House of Healing at Weye.esp with xEdit (in order to get rid of ITM records and deleted references as LOOT suggests it) or it will break your patch?

You should always clean mods with xEdit. Any patch I create will have been done with cleaned mods. So yes, do that.

I'm a novice modder so please forgive me in advance. But the readme instructions: "Requirements: meshes and textures folder from main patch file" & "Contains all of the funcionality found in the main patch file. In addition..." are seemingly contradictory. Should we overwrite the house of healing (4-way) version of the patch with the textures and meshes from the basic (3-way) patch. Can we use just the 4-way patch with its meshes and textures folder?

Thank you for the tremendous amount of work you put into creating compatibility patches for all these lovely mods. When I opened the Hesu patch compendium in MO2 my jaw almost dropped to the ground. I love the passion for this game that you and other modders exude.

Thank you very much! It's nice of you to share that. When I finally finished the last Hesu update and actually counted the patches, my jaw dropped lol. Didn't realize there were so many. One day I hope to be able to write a read-me file which is crystal clear. I'm getting better at it, but not quite there yet. I'll try to word this in a way that makes sense.

For the 3 main patches in this package, you should only ever choose one. Installing more than one will cause duplicate objects in-game. The meshes and textures are the same for each, so won't matter which package you choose.  "AFKWeye-MTC-RRLRumare Patch" is the most basic. Patching the 3 conflicting mods together. The next two are built off of this as a template, but add in compatibility for other things as well. "AFKWeye-MTC-RRLRumare-HOH Patch" for example adds in compatibility for House of Healing.  "WeyeOverhaulMods Patch" does everything the previous patches do, plus adds compatibility for Oblivion Farmers Market.

All three of the above have built in compatibility for Akaviri Imports mod (requires the replacer esp in optional files), Ruined Tale's Tail (requires the RTT relocation patch from Arthmoor), and Clocks of Cyrodiil. There is also an optional patch file for Colouwheels Sexy Oblivion Overhaul, this file can only be used alongside the basic 3 way patch (afk-mtc-rr). The person who originally created it designed it that way.

Hopefully this clears things up for you. And thanks for reaching out.

Apologies for somehow missing this question. Probably too late for the OP, but I'll answer for anyone else who may have the same question. I always clean mods before creating patches for them. So yes, you can (should) clean the mods before using them.

Just an FYI, the RTT-Weye Relocation Patch.esp patch is also hosted on the AFK Weye nexus mod page https://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/22828.

It's inside in the 02 Compatibility folder of the main download, it's the exact same file as Allister posted above.

---

Just a query regarding two other patches, MTC Expanded Villages - Weye Patch MTC-WeyePatch.esp and MTCExtendedVillages-Colourwheels Sexy Overhaul Patch MTCExpandedVillages-Colourwheels Sexy Overhaul Patch.esp.

I'm assuming those files should not be used with these patches?

Thanks for the tip on that, I did not know it was available there. And probably Arthmoor didn't either or it wouldn't still be there. I won't tell if you don't.

About those patches, you don't want to use either of them with these patches. They obviously touch the same areas, but in very different ways. You would only be inviting trouble.

Is there any patch that requires only AFK Weye and Region Revive?

Not here. These are all centered around the 3 big mods for Weye village. Look for author "dreamed1" on Nexus. He made some Weye related patches long ago. Perhaps he has something that works better for you.

Actually such a patch is included into the AFK Weye main file.
