How to use this resource

The goldmine is a general repository of links that might be helpful. If you are a newcomer to Stable Diffusion, it's highly recommended to use start from the beginning.

If something is missing from here that was here before, try checking


Items on this list with a πŸ₯’ next to them represent my top pick for the category. This rating is entirely opinionated and represents what I have personally used and recommend, not what is necessarily "the best".


  1. Ckpts/hypernetworks/embeddings and things downloaded from here are not interently safe as of right now. They can be pickled/contain malicious code. Use your common sense and protect yourself as you would with any random download link you would see on the internet.
  2. Monitor your GPU temps and increase cooling and/or undervolt them if you need to. There have been claims of GPU issues due to high temps.


Don't forget to git pull to get a lot of new optimizations + updates. If SD breaks, go backward in commits until it starts working again


  • If on Windows:
    1. navigate to the webui directory through command prompt or git bash
      a. Git bash: right click > git bash here
      b. Command prompt: click the spot in the "url" between the folder and the down arrow and type "command prompt".
      c. If you don't know how to do this, open command prompt, type "cd [path to stable-diffusion-webui]" (you can get this by right clicking the folder in the "url" or holding shift + right clicking the stable-diffusion-webui folder)
    2. git pull
    3. pip install -r requirements.txt
  • If on Linux:
    1. go to the webui directory
    2. source ./venv/bin/activate
      a. if this doesn't work, run python -m venv venv beforehandww
    3. git pull
    4. pip install -r requirements.txt

Models, Embeddings, and Hypernetworks

Downloads listed as "sus" or "might be pickled" generally mean there were 0 replies and not enough "information" (like training info). or, the replies indicated they were suspicious. I don't think any of the embeds/hypernets have had their code checked so they could all be malicious, but as far as I know no one has gotten pickled yet

I've made a full export of the Chinese Telegram channel.

It's 37 GB (~160 hypernetworks and a bunch of full models).
If you don't want all that, I would recommend downloading everything but the 'files' folder first (like 26 MB), then opening the html file to decide what you want.

What's all the new stuff?

Check here to see if your question is answered:

What's the "Hello Asuka" test?

It's a flawed test to see if you're able to get a 1:1 recreation with NAI and have everything set up properly. Coined after asuka anon and his efforts to recreate 1:1 NAI before all the updates. Deviations arise with certain systems.

What is pickling/getting pickled?

ckpt files and python files can execute code. Getting pickled is when these files execute malicious code that infect your computer with malware. It's a memey way of saying you got hacked.

How do I directly check AUTOMATIC1111's webui updates?

For a complete list of updates, go here:

What do I do if a new updates bricks/breaks my AUTOMATIC1111 webui installation?

Go to
See when the change happened that broke your install
Get the blue number on the right before the change
Open a command line/git bash to where you usually git pull (the root of your install)
'git checkout <blue number without these angled brackets>'
to reset your install, use 'git checkout master'

git checkout . will clean any changes you do

What is...? (by anon)

What is a VAE?

Variational autoencoder, basically a "compressor" that can turn images into a smaller representation and then "decompress" them back to their original size. This is needed so you don't need tons of VRAM and processing power since the "diffusion" part is done in the smaller representation (I think). The newer SD 1.5 VAEs have been trained more and they can recreate some smaller details better.

What is pruning?

Removing unnecessary data (anything that isn't needed for image generation) from the model so that it takes less disk space and fits more easily into your VRAM

What is a pickle, not referring to the python file format? What is the meme surrounding this?

When the NAI model leaked people were scared that it might contain malicious code that could be executed when the model is loaded. People started making pickle memes because of the file format.

Why is some stuff tagged as being 'dangerous', and why does the StableDiffusion WebUI have a 'safe-unpickle' flag? -- I'm stuck on pytorch 1.11 so I have to disable this

Safe unpickling checks the pickle's code library imports against an approved list. If it tried to import something that isn't on the list it won't load it. This doesn't necessarily mean it's dangerous but you should be cautious. Some stuff might be able to slip through and execute arbitrary code on your computer.

Is the rentry stuff all written by one person or many?

There are many people maintaining different rentries.

What's the difference between embeds, hypernetworks, and dreambooths? What should I train?

I've tested a lot of the model modifications and here are my thoughts on them:
embeds: these are tiny files which find the best representation of whatever you're training them on in the base model. By far the most flexible option and will have very good results if the goal is to group or emphasize things the model already understands
hypernetworks: there are like instructions that slightly modify the result of the base model after each sampling step. They are quite powerful and work decently for everything I've tried (subjects, styles, compositions). The cons are they can't be easily combined like embeds. They are also harder to train because good parameters seem to vary wildly so a lot of experimentation is needed each time
dreambooth: modifies part of the model itself and is the only method which actually teaches it something new. Fast and accurate results but the weights for generating adjacent stuff will get trashed. These are gigantic and have the same cons as embeds
