Tip for cc addicts on loading screens

Maybe you guys already know about this and I'm just now discovering! But I wanted to share for anybody who like me has more cc than the law allows. My loading screen when starting up use to take a literal 10min or more. So long I would go do something till it finishes. Annoying yes but I didn't mind because I know the amount of content I'm stuffing it with.

After years of this I discovered how to reduce the loading time to less than a min they way it is without cc!!!! That little box that pops up showing you all the cc an installed mods on the main screen. I unchecked the box in the lower left corner that says "show on every startup" or something like that.

And wow😱😱😱😱I never would have thought. Hope that helps somebody.

    Never heard of that! But good for you!
    What I do to not have crazy loadings is merge CC... Keeping an un merged backup. If a piece of CC breaks, I get rid of the merged version, get rid of whatever is broken, and re-emerge what's left.

    Oh sweet beautiful angel you have come to my rescue on that.

    I don't mind the loading - tends to give me a chance to grab a drink and such - but the idea of merging down some things that have become bloated seems like a good thought to move towards.

    I just seem to have weird issues with S4S

    OMG!

    How have I not heard of this before? It works like a charm, holy ripped nylons Batman! It took almost 30 minutes to load my game before and now it takes less than one minute to load my game (like when I have no cc in the game). It's a huge difference!

    I had no idea it was the cc/mod list that shows on the startup screen that was causing the game to take forever to load. I just assumed it had to do with the amount of cc I had in my game because of how fast the game loaded whenever I took out my cc/mods folder. Now I can go in and out of my game in a flash... which is great for when I want to quickly try out something (like a new cc item to see if it works properly, etc) in my game. Open the game, quickly try something out, close the game. Yay!

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    Glad it helped!!! I was so thrilled!! Lol🤗🤗🤗

    Yea I thought about merging too but I often forget what cc I have and end up with duplicates I have to seek and destroy with conflict detector so that would be my last resort if I needed it.
