Trialing Vortex with Fallout 4 so far it has been great, no real issues as yet with 250 plugins,
Things i would like to see with the dashboard is more custom options like the resizing of the windows by dragging an edge to suit your personal setting,
One other change to the Dashboard (or the face i haven't found the option to) is the ability to change the launch executable on the Game at the very top of the dash board as most Beth games are using F4SE (Fallout 4) or SKSE (Skyrim).
The notifications you get once downloaded a mod or something needs to have a timer having them hang there and build a cue doesn't look that aesthetic.
Once having installed a mod i still have to enable the plug-ins (I'm a potato, compared to most people using mods) would have thought that after installing the mod the plugins would auto enable themselves.

But hey what would this potato know.

Ok installed Alpha and this program does exactly what NMM does, tries to highjack my mods and force update them... good thing I always make backup plugin list and add stuff manually, because it tries to connect my current mods to nexus and cleared my pluginlist while doing so, it then does'nt find my current version since I freeze update of fallout4 as I dont want to change version nor update and break mods until that version is tested and other mods are updated with it, WHY cant a mod manager just read my list and THEN let me choose to continue adding mod from there and just read my current esp into the list and what order I have it in. I dont want autosort because that is'nt tested and perfected enough as I have in my list, I dont want to link or connect my current mods while the site might no longer have that mod version and want me to update.

Since this mod manager probably with have an update issue as NMM had with reloading list it will be more annoying work than just keep sorting things manually, I will not use this, maybe on a fresh install but that will not add this to my current modded fallout 4.

His critique may be over the top but he still got valid points which should be addressed in future updates.

Not a fan at all. Agree with many previous comments. just launching this caused hours of work to load order. I did not even activate a game and it decided to screw things up pretty bad lol

Honestly I had high hopes for this mod manager but alas its one of the worse mod managers out there, not to be rude but its true even if Nexus mod manager had its problems it was still better than vortex plain and simple is just better sometimes and speaking of, Vortex is a great example of this, vortex not only is over complicated and over saturated with unnecessary content such as the hide game feature and url download its kind of unneeded sense you could download it from the site which makes it easier for me and then there's the downloads not only does it mess up some of them vortex also manages to mess up a heavy amount of mods i have downloaded in the past tsk tsk, to conclude we were better off with Nexus mod manager Vortex doesn't make anything better even if it is an alpha its already got too much added to it and even if it has lowered its massive amount of problems the damage is already done by forcing us to us it.

@mexichan; "... forcing us to use it."

As if anyone were "forced" to use a manager for mods at all.

I really hope it won't take much longer to get out of alpha, I want a complete substitute of MO2 for Skyrim.

I havn"t had any problems and love it. Its easy and simple. some say it over complicated..... no idea how its just as easy as nmm. learn how to do a load order lol. Also if you don't like either just go and download manually. its great and I love it stop complaining its too complicated. learn to mod.

@mexichan: I switched to Vortex Alpha for Fallout 4 and Fallout NewVegas and didn't have any problems whatsoever. I must admit that I found it better to download the mods from Nexus rather than try to install from file from the NMM directories - but that's a doddle especially if you have unrestricted download speeds from being a Premium Member. I don't like the dashboard front end but that could be because I'm still happy with Windows 7 on a desktop and don't appreciate all the flat screen Windows 10 stuff. The big plus points I get from Vortex are:
1) I have 22GB less on my SSD C;/ Drive for Fallout 4 compared with the same 191 mods installed with NMM.
2) I get easy to deal with notifications when one mod needs to be loaded before or after another rather than all that individual overwrite this file stuff with NMM.
3) I don't have to keep reinstalling mods to modify the load order.
Just my tuppence worth.....
