I'm planning on releasing a small race mod, but I've been using it as a master file for personal use. However, I'm looking at other race mods and they all seem to be plugins. I've had problems with my race mod when it was in plugin form (update problems mostly) so I'm confused, should I use ESM or ESP? From what I can tell when a file is ESM the game keeps track of entries better, even if you change the plugin significantly, change the name or even have an override copy in an ESP it won't make a copy and people with the race will still be that race (instead of creepy, floating head parts). That could all be wrong, they're just problems and observations I've had so I just want to know from more seasoned modders. Thank you to anyone who answers.
