Basic modding Help (Beautification)

Hi all! Been playing this game on and off for years and have been playing Wog and Era II lately however I wanted to go back to vanilla but just keep some of the changes that I had in those mods. Specifically I would like to play the original trilogy with only these few graphic mods and possibly HD+. the mods I plan to use are

New interface mod https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMz2CFtGuEw
Vallex Portraits http://heroes3wog.net/vallex-portaits/
Random skins http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=39062

all can be found on this page http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=39062

I tried doing this in safe SOD and it half works. interface works mostly but i want to fix it so it works everywhere. Portraits work fine, random skins mod doesnt work, city shields work but art screens do not.

so to cover ..... I wanna use these mods specifically and put them on top of a vanilla game. Or be able to play said mods with Original trilogy. I tried with Safe SoD but could only get some things to work. The random skins dont work for some reason and the interface works mostly but in some areas not. So if you can explain to me how I would start on this it would be appreciated.

You need Safe Sod mod, but you will have to check the .pac file inside, open it with Snd/vid/pac editor from era tools, then remove all pcx files from it. As Safe Sod restores SoD graphics over Wog ones.

Hey! thanks for the quick reply. So after switching to safe SOD ive installed all the mods on in the mod manager. everything seems to work except the Random Skins mod. which still kinda works. at least the city sheilds do. the one missing element from this is the nice art screens that come with that mod. i was wondering how i would put thos on top of safe SOD. this kinda works if i delete restore interface.bin from SoD EraPlugins AfterWoG  folders reverting the main menu screen to WOGs main screen. Id like to change that so it keeps the original but its locked up in that .bin file and dont know how to open or change it. i know this sounds trivial and picky but i really would love to gel this all together and create my own personal goo mod.

Mod Edit: corrected the quote error, to better format the message as a whole.

Safe sod prohibits other scripts
If you want a specific mod to work, you will have to paste its erm file name in "load these scripts only" txt file, inside safe sod mod, save then load game, press f12 to use new scripts and thats all

Alright. Thats something i had not tried gave it a go but didnt get any results saw that the Erm got refreshed when i hit f12 tho..so thats working. . i think its because the randomskin.era is a .era file and not an .erm file. maybe im wrong. is there a way to change that. the mod works itself without Safe SOD but wanna use it IN Safe SOD. it already looks much better but would really love to implement the art. youve been really great so thank you.
