I'm not just a mod author, I use mods all the time myself.  Happyuser created a very helpful modding resource: "Forever Thankful - Skyrim Modding Resource".  It talks about best practices for people using mods and forums to seek help.  Please read it.  I am very thankful for all the mods I use, and I am thankful you have chosen to use mine.





- I strongly recommend using NMM or MO to install and uninstall this mod

- Say "yes" to have my mod replace any and all files
- If you want to install manually, make certain you back up the following files from your --Data--Scripts--Source folder: PlayerVampireQuestScript, PRKF_VampireFeedBeds_000CF02C, and VampireSunISMDEffectScript
- If installing manually, make certain you ONLY install one of my main .esp files.


If Installing For The First Time

1) Delete any and all other vampire modification mods first, if you remove them later on some of my scripts will be removed and replaced with vanilla Skyrim versions.  I recommend you use my "Remove Better Vampires" batch file first to ensure other mod's Vampire scripts aren't even there when you install mine.
2) Install my mod (make sure it is installed after any appearance or customized race mods, say yes to replace any and all files).
3) Use LOOT or make certain that my mod is in the correct load order (check my Troubleshooting page).
4) Use my MCM – Troubleshooting and Cleanup page (or my customization power) and click on "Reset Sanguinare Vampiris".
5) Customize my mod with the MCM, customization power, or console commands.
6) You were infected in step 4, now you must wait 3 days for your disease to run its course and you will become a vampire at stage 1 (fully fed).






If Upgrading

Please follow all of these steps (for versions 7.5 and greater) if upgrading from a previous version of my mod:
(don't worry, you'll never lose your progress)

1) Rest/wait INSIDE for 24hr in the game - this will allow any NPCs you have fed upon, or used Seduction on, time to recuperate.
2) Use my MCM - Troubleshooting and Cleanup page (or my customization power) and click on "BLANK Better Vampires Mod".
3) If using my MCM, exit it to have the mod blanked.
4) Wait until told the blanking is complete, then save your game (it must be a real save, not a quick save).
5) Exit the game.
6) Uninstall and delete the old version of my mod (completely DELETE it from the Skyrim\Data and Skyrim\Data\Scripts folders). I use MO to remove mods, but you can check the files section and use my "Remove Better Vampires" batch file - it will ENSURE everything is gone.
7) Download and install my latest mod version using NMM, MO, or Bethesda.net.
8) Start the game and load your saved game from step 4.
9)
Use my MCM - Troubleshooting and Cleanup page (or my customization power) and click on "Reset Sanguinare Vampiris".
10) Customize my mod with the MCM, customization power, or console commands.
11) You were infected in step 9, now you must wait 3 days for your disease to run its course and you will become a stage 1 Vampire (fully fed). 
* You must feed once on a living victim to have your proper rank set the first time.

OPTIONAL STEPS
12) Make a new save after you turn into a vampire the first time (it must be a real save, not a quick save).
13) Exit the game.
14)
Use the Script Cleaner on the save from step 12 (to ensure the cleanest slate possible).
15)
Start the game and load your cleaned saved game from step 14.

8) Uninstall and delete the old version of my mod (completely DELETE it from the Skyrim\Data and Skyrim\Data\Scripts folders). I use MO to remove mods, but you can check the files section and use my "Remove Better Vampires" batch file - it will ENSURE everything is gone.
9) Start the game and load your saved game from step 6 - ignore the message about missing content.
10) Now make a new "clean" save without my mod (not a quick save). 
11) Exit the game.  Use the Script Cleaner on the "clean" save from step 10 (to ensure the cleanest slate possible).
12) Download and install my latest mod version using NMM or MO.
13) Load your "clean" saved game from step 11.
14) Customize my mod with the MCM or console commands.
15) You were infected in steps 4 and 5, now you must wait 3 days for your disease to run its course and you will become a stage 1 Vampire (fully fed).




NOTE: If you are using the "RaceCompatibility for Skyrim and Dawnguard" mod by TMPhoenix, you have to follow the instructions on his page on how to make a clean save in conjunction with his mod. If you don't, my mod will not function properly.  You can also check my Known Issues and FAQ Page for a list of instructions.
