Hello,

I am not sure if this is possible or not, but drawing upon the package manager from FOMM and specifically how it is possible to sort installed mods into categories.. perhaps with NMM it is possible to adapt this to the actual plugin list?

Aside from esps needing to be in certain places (like weather mods at the end of the load order or so) people usually group their mods in logical order in the plugin list, to make it easier to navigate and find mods. Would it be possible to add in a category type view to the plugins list, which would allow the divisions of such groups to be more clearly displayed? This would be a UI thing, rather than anything that impacts with the actual load order.

An example would be:

- Core Game Category -
(nestled list begins - start of load order)
Game.ESM
dlc1.esm
dlc2.esm

- User Interface Mods -
(nestled list continues now - but in actual fact of load order, keeps going after dlc2.esm, this being just a graphical change with the NMM ui)
darnUI.esp
readiuspipboy.esp
etc..

This way, people can sort their mods into groups while working with the load order plugin list.

Perhaps its not possible, or a bad direction to consider, but food for thought perhaps, for all of us who sort our mods in the load list along those terms (for the most part)...

Thanks

I totally think this would be possible. There is a data tree list control in Window Forms.
