I've been modding Skyrim and various Bethesda games for years now, although not on this account. I've never felt real pressure to switch to Mod Organizer (MO) and abandon Nexus Mod Manager (NMM).
NMM has pretty much been amazing. It did have a few issues with installing and uninstalling mods, taking a longer time than preferred, but overall it was simple and easy to use for new comers.
I completely invite new mod managers to the modding scene but this is NOT the way. Vortex has caused various mods to drop support for NMM and has been extremely irritating. One of the mods that was VERY important to me to be able to play was Fallout: New California for Fallout: New Vegas. Although this may not be an issue for most, I had a very tough time installing it with NMM ending in failure.
I went onto the Fallout: New California mod page for clarification and it said:
"Use Vortex or MO2 to install (NOT NMM or FOMM!)"
"WE NO LONGER SUPPORT NEXUS MOD MANAGER OR FALLOUT MOD MANAGER!"
Apparently this was due to NMM or Fallout Mod Manager (FOMM) not being about to handle larger files which was the reason for the Vortex creation in the first place (paraphrasing), which is totally understandable.
I understand the creation of Vortex (and any other alike mod managers), but I really just want the simple and easy to use NMM to be supported. I know that I will never be heard but this seems like the place to speak up..
Yo, can we get a NMM 2.0 or something? To be blunt, Vortex is straight trash. A heap of garbage. It's extremely hard to use and doesn't carry over previous mods installed via NMM in my experience.
I've personally decided just not to install mods that don't support NMM from now on. I've uninstalled Vortex and reinstalled NMM.
If you'd like to reinstall NMM if you've uninstalled it I will provide a link: https://www.nexusmod...ds/4/?tab=files
