First I got Perfect Whiterun using NMM. I enabled it and checked the my Skyrim>Data folder and the file whiterun spruce by revan1199.esp is in fact there. However, when I run the game Whiterun has not changed at all. The exact same problem happened with the Beautiful Skyrim Mod. The .esp files appear where they should be(or where I believe they should be) but nothing in game is changed. Any suggestions on what I should do? The people in the comments on the Skyrim Nexus seem to have gotten it to work so I must be doing something wrong.
I am using NMM and on the Mods panel it is checked(so mod files have been placed in) and on the plugin panel they have also been check so it should be "on". However if I don't use NMM and just launch the game the "Data Files" option is grayed out and I can't select it.
there is a line you have to add to your Ini file to enable them, an di'm pretty sure, even when using NMM that it still needs to be added, most mods that have been around a while have it on their discription page, but just incase..add this in the Prefs Ini under the launcher heading
