WIP?

TR_Mainland

  • run tes3cmd clean to remove CS junk cells from the last stable TR_Mainland.ESP
  • run tes3cmd common on Morrowind.esm, Tribunal.esm, Bloodmoon.esm to weed out any accidental junk edits. The only results should be LTEX, LAND, CELL and DIAL. DIAL: all topics, but there should be no INFO (except two in greeting 7): that would be dirty dialogue. Check and remove any of that with tes3cmd delete --type INFO --exact-id "..." - same for any other type of dirty objects.
  • this is your last chance to fix wrong IDs! don't forget to recompile any scripts that use these IDs. tes3cmd example
  • turn ESP into ESM (WryeMash or tes3cmd esm)
  • copy file comment, eg. Main File v. 17.09 (CS file list or WryeMash)
  • change the modified date to 01/01/2012 18:00:00 (WryeMash)
  • OR: no large changes? make a hotfix ESP instead of a new ESM, which won't upset compatibility with saves and mods
     

 

TR_Preview

  • with the new TR_Mainland.ESM loaded, merge all other sections into a TR_Preview.esp
  • for each merge, check a couple Greetings and generic topics (latest rumors) for any dialogue dropping at the bottom
  • check cell borders between sections for holes
  • clean as above

 
TR_Travels & TR_OldTravels

  • check that their date comes after TR_Preview in the loading order

 
For each of these, copy any missing CS file comments, update dependences to the current versions of TR_Mainland.ESM and Tamriel_Data.ESM,  and make sure they are present in the optional files:

  • TR_Preview.esp
  • TR_Factions.esp
  • TR_Travels.esp
  • TR_Travels (Mainland and Preview).esp
  • TR_OldTravels.esp
  • ?

 
TR_Readme

  • change the BUILD version and date at the top of the file
  • change the rev. version and date at the bottom of the file
  • change the Tamriel_Data version in i. Requirements
  • change the date and contents of VI. PROJECT STATUS
  • credits: look at recent promoted showcases for new members
  • credits: look at assets that have been merged since last release in the asset browser or in all (may be several) versions of Tamriel_Data TR Addon since last TR release, add any new contributors to credits
  • credits: look at quest claims that have been merged since last release, add any non-promoted contributors (free writers) to credits
  • try to remove any outdated info. Good luck.
