User Defined

Changes to automatically created INI files are reverted by Steam when validating the local game cache. User defined INI files can be used to prevent this. Settings defined in a user defined INI file override settings in a regular INI file.

Used by the game
  • My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimCustom.ini overrides Skyrim.ini
Used by the editor
  • steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim\SkyrimEditorCustom.ini overrides SkyrimEditor.ini

Mod Defined

Mods can define INI files to override settings from Skyrim.ini. Mod defined INI files should have the same name as the plugin file and are only applied if the plugin is loaded by the game.

Mod defined INI files are automatically uploaded to Steam Workshop.
