File Not Found Meshes

The mesh can not be found.

DynDOLOD tries to not generate LOD for or with missing assets to avoid issues.

In the worst case scenario missing meshes cause CTD. Typically missing meshes cause red triangles with an exclamation mark for missing meshes. In the best case it just means a missing LOD asset, so something won't have a LOD representation.

The log tries to only report missing meshes in case they might actually be used in the game. Mods sometimes contain orphaned or unused records or data, which is not causing problems directly.

This can happen in case not all required *.BSA files are not loaded for whatever reason. The log prints a list of every *.BSA file that is loaded. Check that none of the required *.BSA files are missing by comparing the log messages to the load order.

This can happen if a mod is installed that requires the meshes from another mod that is not installed. Verify the requirements of the related plugins or mods.

This can happen if not all required meshes where included in the download archive of a mod or if there are typos in records defining the path and filename of meshes.

If a mesh is required or not can be verified with xEdit. Look up the mentioned base record and check the Referenced By tab at the bottom of the right record window. Then check if the base record is used by references in worldspaces or cells that the player can actually reach in normal game play. Plugins sometimes contain test worldspaces or cells, so if a missing mesh is only used in them, it is not problematic for a play-through.

If it has been verified that the mesh is not required, try to remove or update the unused record/entry so the non existing filename is not being referenced.

In case a mesh is missing from a mod archive or installation, make sure all the requirements are installed. If a required mesh is really missing from a mod, notify the mod author.
