Hallo Tannin & Dark0ne
Hallo Mod Community
1st thank you Tannin for MO and MO2 as well for Vortex this new Mod Organisation Tool.
2nd thank you Dark0ne for Nexus in general.
3rd thank you all Community Members as well as makers and contributors for all the mods and feedback to make them all great .
I have a very basic question which will determine (for me personally) if I will ever use Vortex a successor to MO2 (no matter if it's in alpha, beta or a final release state):
- Does it make use of the Virtual directory and file handling concept and technique like MO got famous for?
- If not I’m very sorry that’s not the tool for me.
I personally will never go back (if I don’t have too) using a Mod Organisation tool (especial on Bethesda games) not using a virtual file handling feature. It's a too great of a hassle to keep the basic game installation clean and not get compromised by broken mods.
2nd: It looks like I can’t find any configuration option to change the download and active Mods directories.
- The 1st maybe because I’m blind and can’t find it, or simply Vortex does not support this feature right now (but hopefully very soon).
For me personally that’s an very important config feature for any software I use. I don't want to flood my OS / System drive with any game data, mod’s, and files (if possible, my windows profile is located on a separate drive letter). Personally I'll try to keep my Mod Downloads on a separated physical HDD/SDD, with a dedicated and organised directory structure (but maybe that’s just me ).
- The 2nd maybe because Vortex does not make use of a Virtual File Handler.
Sorry if I may sound ungrateful or rude, that’s not my intension, just want you to know what I think and have experienced the 1st 20 minutes using Vortex.
Sorry form my bad English, it’s not my native tongue.
