Release (8/7/19) - Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.6 Hotfix 1

Happy Wednesday everybody!

I’m proud to present Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.6 hf 1. This hotfix fixes the control issues with the previous gamepad & keyboard control schemes, improves the UI with some minor tweaks, addresses the remaining major bugs in 4.0.6, and adds a few new additional features.

Make sure to read the changelog for a full list of changes, and if you encounter any issues, please report them on the Discord or the Subreddit.

  1. Starting with Step Two, repeat the process on the Express Install page.

  2. Repeat the processes on the Final Steps page.

Manual Update Instructions

This update method will update your current instance of Ultimate Skyrim. This is a more complex update method - proceed at your own risk, and consider backing up your install first.

  1. Download and install the updated versions of mods listed under “Updated Mods” below, then remove their old versions. (Right-click in MO and select “Remove Mod”.)

  2. Make any changes specified under “Adjusted Mods” below. (FOMODs can be adjusted by re-installing mods. Right-click a mod in MO and select “Reinstall Mod”.)

  3. Download and install the Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.6 hf1 Mod Files. (Make sure to select your preferred control device.)

  4. Organize the mods in your Modlist (MO Left Pane) according to the 4.0.6 hf1 Official Modlist.

Full Changelog

Updated Mods

  • Nether’s Follower Framework: Updated to 2.4.1.

  • Ultimate Skyrim: Updated to 4.0.6 Hotfix 1.

Adjusted Mods

  • JContainers: Moved lower in the modlist.

  • PapyrusUtil: Moved lower in the modlist.

New Features

  • There are now two separate Express Install files: one for keyboard users, and one for gamepad users. This should reduce confusion & tweaking for keyboard users who have no interest in gamepad controls, and vice versa.

  • Nearly all UI elements will fade when irrelevant/not in use, and several UI elements were slightly adjusted for even better usability/readability.

  • Many keys have been rebound for both Keyboard & Gamepad, and the Easy Wheel Menu has been expanded with additional commands. This should create a better user experience for both control methods. Please refer to the resources above for a full display of the new controls.

  • The camera has been overhauled with new settings for exploration, combat, and sneaking.

  • Edited the enblocal.ini instructions to remove keybinds for the Frame Limiter & VRAM unlocker. (Thanks dantemp for the suggestion)

  • The dirt textures from Bathing in Skyrim are now slightly more visible. Make sure to wash behind your ears!

Bug Fixes

  • The provided ini files have been corrected to utilize the intended FOV of 90 instead of 80. Keep in mind that raising the FOV may drop a few frames for some users, and select your ini preset accordingly.

  • The new batch of invisible mudcrabs have been made visible again.

  • The SkyUI default value for item stacking has been reset to 10, to allow stack selling.

  • Carry Weight bonuses from pouches, bandoliers, etc. are properly hardcoded and no longer tied to the CCOR MCM slider.

  • Fixed an issue where Backpacks were no longer displaying items dynamically, such as tents, waterskins, etc.

  • Fixed a bug where players could find themselves teleporting to a previous cell when using functions from Spell Research & Train and Study. (Thanks KBeazy for patching this!)

  • Quest items will no longer be removed from the player's inventory on death. (Thanks Hazard for this fix!)

  • Players can once again die from hypothermia as intended. (Another thanks to Hazard!)

  • The Customizable Camera FOV slider now functions properly. (Another thanks to Hazard - sensing a trend?)

Release (7/28/19) - Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.6

Happy Sunday everybody!

I’m proud to present Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.6. Sorry for the tardy release - I hit a few snags towards the end & wanted to make sure everything was up to snuff.

4.0.6 is intended to polish the 4.0.x experience, since it’s the last of the 4.0.x series - meaning the next release will be 4.1.0.

4.0.6 includes a lot of new features, fixes, and changes, so be sure to read the changelog carefully. If you encounter any issues, please report them on the Discord or the Subreddit.

  • Immersive Amazing Follower Tweaks

    • Replaced by Nether’s Follower Framework.

    • Several users have identified bugs in the RBM skeletons that prevent proper ragdolling behavior. The mod is removed until these bugs can be fixed.

  • Snotgurg’s Simple Drop Lit Torches

    • Replaced by iEquip.

New Features

  • Borderless Windowed mode is once again the default setting.

  • Ultimate Skyrim now features full Gamepad support, thanks to some long hours & the combined efforts of several incredible mods. Particular shout out to Dunc Smith, creator of iEquip & Gamepad++, without whom this would not even be close to possible.

  • Auto-configuration presets have been included for the following mods: A Matter of Time, Campfire, Frostfall, Gamepad++, iEquip, Less Intrusive HUD II, Simply Knock, SV Mods Menu, Thieves Guild Requirements, and Wearable Lanterns.

  • All varieties of hip pouch now provide the same Carry Weight bonus of 5, so players can mix and match different pouches/holsters/etc.

  • All Bandolier items now use slightly updated naming conventions so they’re better organized in the inventory.

  • All backpacks now have the Clothing keyword so vendors will buy & sell them appropriately.

  • Eorlund Gray-Mane only offers his smithing services to members of the Companions Circle.

  • Every blacksmith’s smithing skill has been individualized based on the their background, experience, and clientele (i.e. who pays their bills) . The most skilled blacksmiths are generally harder to find, and are often related to factions or areas of the world that are difficult to access.

  • Blacksmiths can now craft items from the Forge, Crafting Table, Tanning Rack, and Smelter.

  • Some NPC’s now offer Tailoring services, and accept orders for clothing & cloth items in the same way that blacksmiths accept orders for weapons, armors, etc. There’s generally at least one Tailor in each of the five major cities, and they can be identified by the spinning wheels they keep in their shops. (Other means of identifying Tailors will likely be added later.)

  • For realism, Imperial Mail savings account services have been restricted to major cities (where the gold assets can be adequately protected). You can access your savings account from all major city taverns, and from the main office in Solitude. All innkeepers still offer other Mail services, such as parcel shipping & passbook replacement. (Thanks to Hazard for setting up this framework!)

  • Civil war soldiers will no longer tolerate you looting their comrades’ corpses, and will report your crimes to their capital hold (Haafingar for the Legion, Eastmarch for the Stormcloaks).

  • The MCM Settings guide now distinguishes between essential settings & non-essential settings. It is also reformatted, edited for clarity, and generally polished.

  • ETaC apparently features optional Laundry & Bedding Clutter - how grand! These features have been enabled, and I gave the laundry water a slight visual touch up with the help of Realistic Water Two.

  • The “Harvest Wood” ability has been disabled to avoid confusion with the “Foraging” ability, and you can now forage both Firewood and Deadwood with the Forage ability, though Firewood is a rarer find.

  • Requiem’s “Examine” ability has been renamed to “Frisk”, since its other functions are effectively replaced by other abilities.

  • All UI meters feature an improved appearance, thanks to Hazarduss & Dunc Smith.

  • The College of Winterhold now requires prospective students to have 50 skill or greater in at least one magical school.

  • Faralda’s College admittance tests are much clearer about the school of magic you’ll be tested in.

  • The College’s various experiments & resources will now provide a small amount of magical XP when examined.

  • Completing quests for the Companions will yield more gold as you advance in rank.

  • If the player initially refuses the Beast Blood from Aela, it’s now slightly easier to convince her to offer it a second time.

  • Fast horse dismount is now the default way of dismounting a horse (and the player no longer defaults to drawing weapons on fast dismount).

  • The ini file from Better Stealing has been adjusted to make life a little harder for thieves. Items worth 50 gold or more will now be marked as Stolen.

  • NPC’s now wear a greater variety of hoods when it’s raining and/or cold.

  • Followers who’ve run out of potions will notify the player every 10 minutes, instead of the previous 5 minute intervals.

  • Followers no longer use potions out of combat to avoid potion wastage.

  • Follower tax through Simple Taxes has been disabled in favor of the tax system from NFF.

  • The script from Dynamic Things now scans less frequently, and the scan range has been slightly shortened. This should help players who sometimes encounter “invisible” containers.

  • The “Homenaje” font has been removed from Ultimate Skyrim’s core files to accommodate the new font Improved Arjestin Font Replacement.

  • Improved copy text for the Rested, Well Rested, Uplifted, & Inspired bonuses.

  • Followers will now use all potions and poisons given to them.

  • “Cook Food” has been reverted to “Primitive Cooking” to avoid confusion. This is purely cosmetic, and there is no functional difference in the primitive cooking mechanic.

  • The “Sense Direction” ability has been re-enabled.

  • MCM instructions have been added for Holidays, specifically regarding Non-Dragonborn characters & character birthdays.

  • New load screens have been added that feature useful tips on surviving and thriving in the world of Ultimate Skyrim.

  • Apothecaries now carry a greater variety of animal parts (though some animal parts still require expert hunting abilities).

  • Renamed Wooden Trolling Rods to be a bit easier to find in the crafting menus.

  • Activating a fresh animal kill while sneaking will no longer pick up the carcass automatically.

  • Animal butchering yields slightly more meat.

  • Combat will no longer prevent animal field dressing, butchering, harvesting, etc.

  • Animations have been disabled for field dressing, butchering, harvesting, etc. (I found these animations jarring in first person because the camera is reset vertically before & after the animation; since the player is usually looking down when performing these actions, there’s a large “jump” between camera states.)

  • The Hunterborn cookbook is no longer required for “obscure” Hunterborn food recipes. (This is in preparation for UltSky’s blueprints, which will supersede all other “recipe” restrictions.)

  • Dragons can now be harvested for additional dragon parts like blood, eyes, etc.

  • The Spinning Wheels in the Hag’s Cure and the Radiant Raiment have been relocated to make them more obvious, and to prevent clipping.

  • Adjusted many “armored cloth” recipes to use pre-made clothing. Affected recipes: Dragonhide Robes, Ebony Mage Armor, and Dwarven Mage Armor.

  • Research Journals now require linen thread & slightly less paper.

  • The price of ink has been slightly reduced.

  • Restored a small chance for Bandit tricksters/wizards to keep Spell Tomes as loot.

  • Iron Kettles & Iron Cauldrons now have identical attributes (value, weight, recipes, etc.) for congruence purposes with Spell Research.

  • You can now re-ignite a burnt out torch by combining it with Flammable Oil at the Crafting Table, or in your Crafting Ledger.

  • Various cloth recipes now use metal fragments/rings instead of full ingots for realism. Affected recipes: all Dragon Priest cloaks, Sheogorath’s Garb, Silk Embroidered Raiments, Psijic Gloves/Robes, Silk Radiant Raiment, Cotton Fine Boots, and Cotton Focusing Gloves.

  • The gold rewards for Missives quests have been increased across the board, especially in the cases of gathering quests where the value of goods gathered was formerly much higher than the quest payout.

  • More taxes have been implemented through Simple Taxes, but the taxes themselves have been generally lowered.

  • The cost for renting out a mine has been increased from 750 to 1000, and the friend discount has been increased from 300 to 500.

  • It’s no longer illegal to use crafting equipment at night in populated locations. (This feature is unfortunately incompatible with SkyrimSouls.)

  • Investing in a shop now costs 1000 gold (previously 500), and merchants you invest in will now have 2000 more gold to trade with (previously 1500).

Bug Fixes

  • All bugs related to Ultimate Skyrim’s death system should be fixed, since death is now handled by the Ashes mod.

  • Gold Ingots can no longer be exchanged for other forms of currency, which prevents an infinite gold exploit.

  • Giant Mudcrabs are no longer invisible.

  • Warmth is properly increased by racial Resist Frost bonuses.

  • Former vampires who’ve purged their curse are no longer restricted from healing items. (Thanks to Hazarduss for the extensive testing & fix on this issue.)

  • The CCOR MCM has been updated to properly display recipes for Artifact Replicas and Armored Circlets, and to disable CCOR’s “Learn to Craft” systems.

  • Hunterborn’s mechanics for learning ingredient effects will no longer supersede the equivalent perks in the Alchemy tree. (Thanks prdmsq for identifying the cause of this problem & providing a solution.)

  • All of ETaC’s alcoholic beverages are now recognized by iNeed.

  • Reduced the experience gain received from priest healing (until I can figure out how to eliminate the experience gain completely).

  • Lanterns will no longer switch to a different mesh when extinguished/re-lit.

  • Fixed an issue preventing Daedric weapon recipes from appearing at the forge.

  • Fixed an erroneous load screen from Spell Research directing players to craft Research Journals at Tanning Racks instead of Crafting Tables.

  • Moved the merchant chest at Solitude’s East Empire Company Warehouse to prevent clipping.

  • Fixed a bug preventing empty waterskins from being refilled if the player had more than one empty waterskin in their inventory.

  • Removed an erroneous occlusion plane causing the world to de-render when players stood near the old “floating door” bug in Falkreath.

  • Edited the names of Frostfall Spell Tomes so they match the new naming conventions from Requiem.

  • Fixed a name typo for the Bolt of Decay spell.

  • Fixed the excessive value of Double-Distilled Skooma.

  • Corrected some typos in priest dialogue.

  • Fixed various inconsistencies in the recipes & breakdowns of Nordic Cuirass variants.

  • Removed Falskaar from the Paper World Map FOMOD instructions.

  • Ancano’s Gloves properly confer the Arcane Storm spell.

  • The description for Boethiah’s Embrace properly displays a damage value of 12 instead of 5.

  • Bottled drinks can be poured out again via the Crafting Ledger.

  • Bardic Knowledge is no longer stackable, and can only be casted once a day.

  • The descriptions for Deathbrand armor pieces have been corrected, and now convey their proper effects.

  • Elven weapons from Heavy Armory break down into Moonstone as intended, instead of Quicksilver.

  • Mead and Ale Kegs have been removed. (They never worked anyway, and were intended for use with Realistic Needs and Diseases.)

  • Added missing recipes and breakdowns for Wooden Fishing Rods, as well as missing breakdowns for wooden weapons.

  • The listed name for Dragon Tongue Soap have been brought in line with the rest of US’s naming conventions.

  • Broken stats for the Stalhrim Heavy Crossbow have been fixed. It’s now the fearsome weapon it was intended to be.

  • The Magicka cost for Summon Ash Spawn has been fixed, and is now appropriately higher.

  • Disabled recipe for Bone War Axe, which was intended to be disabled already. (Bone weapons may make a return at some point, but require balancing & are disabled until that point.)

  • Certain polar bears will no longer speak like humans. ;)

  • Many load screen typos have been corrected.

  • The Leather Seadog, Steel Hammerfell Light Mail, and Nord Light Mail sets now require Advanced Light Smithing as intended, and the Steel Hammerfell Light Mail has been slightly buffed.

  • The Hedge Knight set now requires Ebony Smithing to craft & temper, and Ebony Ingots have been added to its recipes.

  • The Heavy Mantle of the Silver Hand now requires Advanced Blacksmithing, and its armor rating has been slightly nerfed.

  • The Studded Warm Cuirass has been nerfed slightly, and its missing breakdown recipes have been added.

  • Campfires will no longer display duplicate options for building & upgrading fires.

  • The Steel Bastard Sword is no longer invisible.

  • Fixed clipping rowboats and snow piles in Morthal.

  • Added breakdown recipes for village-themed saddles & added Craftsmanship as a requirement for both their recipes and their breakdowns.

  • Restored the missing Lich perks in the Conjuration tree. (Thanks Hazard for providing a fix!)

  • Fixed some improperly placed floating rings in the Midden.

  • Fixed a typo in the description for “Fortified Muscles” asking for Mammoth Fat instead of Mammoth Heart.

  • Restored missing temper recipe for Steel Boots.

  • The description for the perk “Improved Mage Armor” has been corrected, and now states that no armor can be worn to experience the perk bonus.

  • The wool-working stool in the Hag’s Cure has been adjusted so players won’t get stuck after using it.

  • Sleeping in your owned Atronach Crossing homes will properly confer the Well Rested bonus.

  • Added some missing ETaC foods to Dynamic Crafting.

  • DLC helmets are no longer invisible due to incorrect model assignments.

  • Fixed a bug with a certain load screen displaying a female Imperial with ghostly eyes.

  • Removed duplicate recipe for the Aetherial Crown.

  • Removed duplicate breakdown for Iron Mace.

  • Re-enabled a recipe for the White Nordic Shield that was disabled by mistake.

  • Mead Kegs are no longer set to dynamic in the Dynamic Things MCM (and were never intended to be, as this feature does not work with iNeed).

Release (6/14/19) - Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.5
 

Release (6/14/19) - Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.5

Happy Friday everybody!

This is a fairly sizable bugfixing patch that should address the major issues in 4.0.4. It includes a revamp to crafting stations, a fix for the bug blocking Main Quest progression, and other fixes & improvements. Make sure to check out the full changelog for a comprehensive list of changes.

There are still a handful of minor bugs I’d like to address before moving on to 4.1.x, so stay tuned for another bugfixing patch in the coming weeks - after which it’s full speed ahead to 4.1.0. :)

Please note that new versions of Ultimate Skyrim are not intended to work with old saves, and using old saves with newer versions is likely to cause issues that our support team cannot address. (That said, you’re welcome to try if you like.)

Express Install Update Instructions:

Note: This will install a totally new instance of Ultimate Skyrim on your computer. This requires more disk space, but is arguably the easiest update method.

  1. Starting with Step Two, repeat the process on the Express Install page.

  2. Repeat the processes on the Final Steps page.

Manual Update instructions:

Note: These instructions are for installing the update on your current instance of Ultimate Skyrim. This is a more complex update method - proceed at your own risk, and consider backing up your install first.

  1. Download and install DynDOLOD Resources 2.64 from this link.

  2. In your Modlist (Left Pane), place the new version of DynDOLOD in the same position as the old DynDOLOD version & untick the old version.

  3. Download and install Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.5 from this link.

  4. In your Modlist (Left Pane), place the new version of Ultimate Skyrim in the same position as the old Ultimate Skyrim version & untick the old version.

  5. In your Load Order (Right Pane), drag and drop “RTSSDNDSS.esp” into its new location, as specified by the Official Load Order. (Right above ETaC - Complete.esp.)

  6. Remove the mods “Not So Fast - Main Quest”, “Horses Gone Wild”, “Campfire Shrines”, “Religion”, and “Religion 2.0.6 Hotfix”.

  7. Re-run the Reqtificator, DynDOLOD patcher, and Automatic Variants patcher using the guide on the Final Steps page.

  8. Open the MCM for Sleep Tight and change Options > NPCs > Friendly Sleepwear to “Naked”.

  9. Open the MCM for iNeed and untick Difficulty > World > Valued Harvests.

Full Changelog:

Mod Updates

  • Ultimate Skyrim has been updated to 4.0.5.

  • DynDOLOD has been updated to 2.64.

  • EFF has replaced iAFT as the default follower mod in the Express Install.

Mod Removals

  • Not So Fast - Main Quest has been removed. This fixes Delphine’s broken AI after retrieving the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller, and allows the main quest to progress.

    • I did manage to “fix” the bug without removing NSF-MQ, but I could not restore the dialogue about renting the “attic room” without breaking the quest. I felt this dialogue was important to include, since the “attic room” is Delphine’s clever way of identifying the Dragonborn.
      I opted to remove the mod so that this dialogue could be preserved, and because most of NSF-MQ’s functionality is bypassed anyway by Skyrim Unbound. (The only remaining functionality from NSF-MQ was the optional bypassing of negotiations in Season Unending, and US’ official MCM instructions do not utilize this bypass anyway.)

  • Horses Gone Wild has been removed. Fare thee well, friend - you tried your best!

  • Religion & the Religion Hotfix have been removed in preparation for new religion mechanics in 4.1.x, and to fix the currently broken religion mechanics in 4.0.x. Religion mechanics will be default Requiem until 4.1.x.

  • Campfire Shrines has been removed in preparation for new religion mechanics in 4.1.x.

New Features

  • The crafting menus have been reworked to improve performance and usability. It is highly recommended to use the SkyUI search function when crafting.

    • Using a crafting station will only display recipes from that station. For example, using a Cooking Pot will only show Cooking Pot recipes. (Keep in mind that crafting stations will only show recipes if you have the requisite perks.)

    • The Crafting Ledger still displays all recipes, and allows dynamic crafting by scanning for nearby stations. (Please note that the list of visible recipes will be greatly reduced with the introduction of Blueprints in 4.1.x, since the player must collect Blueprints to unlock recipes.)

  • All items requiring Strange Brew now contain the string “(Strange Brew)” in their name, so their recipes can be easily located via SkyUI’s search function when the player has imbibed Strange Brew.

  • The Craftsmanship perk is no longer required for crafting Powdered Mudcrab Chitin.

  • Bryling the Solitude jeweler has expanded her inventory with a much greater variety of jewelry.

  • Several apiaries have been replaced with proprietary versions with greater bee/honeycomb yields. Future updates will replace all apiaries with these proprietary versions for maximum consistency.

  • iNeed’s “Valued Harvests” feature has been disabled; instead, all crops & harvestables around the world have been assigned proper ownership, and are purchaseable directly from the farmers who own the crops. (If you encounter any crops that aren’t owned when they should be, please report them on Discord.)

    • I made this choice for a couple of reasons. I found through testing that “Valued Harvests” allowed crop purchasing even when farmers weren’t around (for example, at 3 AM), despite iNeed’s purport that crops could only be purchased from 8 AM to 8 PM. Also, “Valued Harvests” did not display the crop’s price before purchase. Since Farmers already sell their crops through the standard vendor interface (thanks to Realistic Trading Stocks of Skyrim), I figured it was best to disable “Valued Harvests” altogether & assign proper ownership to all planted crops instead.

Bug Fixes

  • NPC’s no longer utilize dynamic crafting (i.e. scanning for nearby crafting stations). This prevents unnecessary lag.

  • Horses from Expanded Towns and Cities are no longer purchaseable for less than their intended cost.

  • Tanning Racks from Campfire & Atronach Crossing now display the proper recipes.

  • Crafting stations from Campfire & Atronach Crossing now register properly with the Crafting Ledger.

  • Recipes now display properly for Wooden Torches, Leather, and Fur Plates.

  • Recipes now display properly for converting Ingots to Fragments and Fragments to Ingots.

  • Ore recipes will display properly regardless of CCOR’s MCM settings.

  • Dirt textures from Bathing in Skyrim have been de-oranged. (Thanks Gatonegro)

  • Hiring Blacksmiths will no longer level the player’s skills.

  • The missing floor in the Abandoned Prison has been restored, along with some nearby clipping water. (Thanks Nathan!)

  • A floating door has been removed from Falkreath Hold. (Thanks Nathan & Novo)

  • A mysterious magical slab in Morthal has been relocated to prevent clipping. What purpose could it serve? ;)

  • The clipping drawbridge in Morthal has been removed.

  • The MCM for Sleep Tight has been adjusted so that sleeping NPC’s will no longer wear helmets/boots/gauntlets.

  • Unique capes & cloaks like The Cape of Red Eagle no longer display incorrect information in their tooltip & in the Active Effects menu.

  • The Traveler’s Light Blade can now cast its spell as intended.

  • Summoning spells from Realistic Trading Stocks of Skyrim have been renamed to bring them in line with Requiem’s summons.

  • The keyword “VendorItemBardInstrument” has been properly forwarded to relevant items.

  • The Crafting Table at Dragon Bridge no longer clips with the nearby Tanning Rack.

  • The Barter Fix SKSE Plugin is now included with Ultimate Skyrim to prevent the bug where players receive no gold when trading with merchants who have very large gold reserves. (Thanks to mod author kassent for allowing this integration.!)

  • Added missing breakdown recipes for Flawless pelts.

  • Broken breakdown recipes have been fixed for Pelt: Cave Bear Cub (Fine).

  • Removed duplicate recipes for Eidar & Goat Cheese Wheels.

  • Cheese wheels no longer separate into wedges/slices automatically when consumed, and can instead be separated manually through the Crafting Ledger (or consumed whole).

  • Vendors no longer sell the (now obsolete) recipes for Healing Poultices.

  • Fixed incorrect naming of a few Holy Amulet Replicas.

Release (5/1/19) - Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.4

Happy Wednesday everybody!

This is a small patch that updates Ultimate Skyrim to the latest versions of USLEEP and DynDOLOD. It is primarily intended for those who have not yet installed Ultimate Skyrim.

If you already have a working US install, you can consider this update optional, as its changes are very minor.

Update instructions:

  1. Download and install USLEEP 3.0.14 from this link.

  2. In your Modlist (Left Pane), place the new version in the same position as the old USLEEP version & untick the old version.

  3. Download and install DynDOLOD Resources 2.61 from this link.

  4. In your Modlist (Left Pane), place the new version in the same position as the old DynDOLOD version & untick the old version.

  5. Re-run DynDOLOD using the guide on the Final Steps page.
