Am I misunderstanding that Wrye Bash will make FO4 think that I have one really big plugin instead of the 361 plugins that count against the limit? Because if that's not the case, then I will definitely get it done under 255 plugin ceiling. I'm not going to try breaking a hard-coded limit, I just thought WB worked around that limit.
Also, in a popular modding forum in response to my chat about using Vortex and trying to dispel some of the popular misconceptions, I mentioned you can shut off Autosort and use Groups and Rules to sort manually if you absolutely felt you had to, and I got this response: "it just sorts all alphabetically if you unselect that option because all are categorized as default category. " I'm under the impression from speaking with you all that neither of those assertions are correct. Do you want to phrase a response for me that I can copy and paste into the forum in response?
