Another thing to add is that there is a Gecko tut right here!

Yes, but this class takes the tutorial to a practical level pertaining specifically to what you are looking at. :)

Ok, now, before I continue DR, how is it that your beautiful aquatic garden fence looks like this,

C3.jpg

but yet, mine looks like this???? (Note the yellow circle.)

I mean, I got the exact tools for the fence, (1 of BravilFenceDoor02, 12 of FenceMid01, 1 of FenceEnd02, not up to the flora yet), but yet, my "BravilFenceDoor02" is way too tiny, whereas yours is the right size! Is there a way I can make my fence door bigger or stretch it? I don't understand why it is so tiny! It is in the same position as the others. I do not get it, please advise, thanks.

Just hold the S key to scale the door up to match the other fence pieces. ;)

Thanks, that seemed to work. I wish I had caught on to that sooner. Anyway, new problem! I don't know if this is just me, or what, but according to the list, the garden requires 10 of Lilypad01, 6 of LilypadFlower01, and 3 of CypressKneeCluster02, right? And they should be under "Flora", right? Now, in the enclosed screenie, do you see ANY of those 3 plants? Did my cs NOT come w/ those 3 plants? Is there somewhere ELSE I should look that I do not know about? Please have a look where I circled & tell me exactly what I am doing wrong:

All 3 of those items can be found under Statics.A handy little tool to find items can be found in the edit menu.From the main menu bar select edit then scroll down to "find text" and select it.This will open a requester where you can type what you are looking for ie. lily then click "find text.After the search is finished click on the objects tab and all instances of the word lily will be displayed,if you get a lot of results clicking the "type" header above the results will order everything by type.

So, w/ Gecko, basically, I need to click "ignore" for everything that is highlighted? What if it does not say a Vanilla name?

And what about the ones marked "deleted"?

So can someone please help me get a handle on this "Gecko" thing? You know, point me in the right direction? I am confused. :cry:

Okay, yellow does not mean "DELETE ME" yellow just means "You changed this in your mod, it's different than the original game"

Some of those changes you made on purpose, like renaming your cell and building your house. Those will be highlighted in yellow, but you MEANT to change those so leave them alone in Gecko.

Your goal, the things you want to delete are things highlighted in yellow that you didn't mean to change.

In the worldspace list, Tamriel is highlighted because you changed cells, but you meant to change some cells, so it's okay that Tamriel is highlighted. You want to expand the + signs below Tamriel and toggle ignore on any yellow highlights that are not the cell/s you renamed for this mod.

Make sure you do this to a copy of your mod, not the only one, because mistakes are common and you may need to retry on another copy.

As for cells marked as deleted, I believe that means you accidentally deleted cells somehow, just ignore those too and they will reappear the first time the mod loads with the Oblivion.esm

Any other questions?

I thought the deleted ones are the items I put in, then decided to delete. So, in other words, my mod is clean? Should I use any other cleaning tool?

House looks a bit dim, but not too bad. Exterior pathing looks fantastic. All you need is a screen of your clean .esp and you'll be good to go. :D

I cleaned it but didn't take the damn screenshot, and i knew i was forgetting something.

If i load it back up in GECKO will it show what i cleaned or will i need to redo it?

And btw i hate the GECKO thing, took me 40mins to even understand what the hell i was ment to be doing :D

Edit: This is a SS of it after it was cleaned, are there ment to be yellow highlights over the stuff i made(fex: aablahblah)?

Yes in regards to worldspace entries your changes will be highlighted in yellow. Gecko is easy, but it does take getting used to. Looks clean so far, but you need to click the + sign next to the worldspace Tamriel and any other + signs until we can see you your cell then screenshot. Once you clean a mod, it stays clean so you don't need to redo it. You also want to check it in game and make sure everything looks as it's supposed to as overcleaning is a common and easy mistake. :D

Yep, and looks very tidy, well done. Just check that everything is in place where you wanted it in game and you can head to your final! :D

Yeah everything was in place in game. I still don't like that GECKO though, guess I'll have to practice more :D
