Multi-file Merge Up Procedure

MfMUP Fig. 1-6
Step 6. Copy as Override.
  • Expand any record types in any of the ModB plugins that haven't been (i.e. collapse each plugin file and then <Alt+click> the "+" to the left to expand everything if not sure), and select all sub-records from the first ModB to the bottom of the other merged plugins loading after it (this will ignore/de-select the "File Header" records). This time records of all background colors should be included (white, green, yellow, and red). Place the cursor over any 'unique' sub-record, right-click and select "copy as override" into ModA; or to "<new file>" if you intend this to be a new merged plugin file with ModA as it's master. If you don't merge into ModA, then ModA's records are not included in the result.

  • Note you have to select "sub-records", under the first "record type" level. This will cause the Cell "Block #" sub-record types to be selected but not their sub-records, but all other sub-records should be selected.
  • (If you only have "deep copy as override" as an option, the problem is you didn't right-click on a 'unique' sub-record to bring up the context menu.)
  • You may be prompted that this will change the FormID of other plugin records loading after. You want this to happen. It is why you loaded those plugins even though they are not being merged.
(The previous records you just injected in Step 5 will now have a green background color once the "copy as override" is done.)
