I've been playing Bethesda games since, Daggerfall,
I've been modding my games since Morrowind, using various different Mod organisers.
I stuck with NMM as it was simple and easy to work with.
Now arrives Vortex. WTF are you guys playing at? I'm not tech savvy. I was once a front-end programmer and good at my job as I could determine how much a casual user could assimilate, before phasing out. What you've created here is a MONSTER. Nomal players do not need more than half the information you are providing them. I can't even work out how to disable vortex downloading mods even though I'm using the old NMM.
You really need to address this issue or you are gonna loose lots of people looking to a uncomplicated Mod Manager.
If you tie your Mod Manager to your site you are gonna loose lots of people.
I supported you becoming a Premier Member, please don't let me down, otherwise my footfalls will be nowhere near your site and my vocal accolate will be against this site.
Get a grip, not of your "tool" but the functionality.
Hugs and kisses,
*lose, not 'loose'
Also, I doubt you're speaking for more people than just 'you'
Vortex is quite easy to use if you watch a couple of tutorials, which I know you didn't bother to do, because if you had read the knowledge base, and watched a couple of tutorials you'd know just how powerful Vortex actually is, and you'd quickly understand that NMM didn't do much in the way of "Mod Management"
Having your load order automatically sorted, eliminates all of that nonsensical and uneeded micromanaging of the ESPs, like in NMM.
Having the ability to set the Load Priorty of Meshes, Textures, Ba2s and BSAs, is Vortex's strength.
With NMM, when installing texture mods, you had to install them in the correct order in order to overwrite the correct textures and meshes, and if you screwed up, you had to uninstall those mods, and reinstall them all over again in a different order.
With Vortex, you simply install those Texture mods, in any order, then you tell vortex to load one mod BEFORE the other texture mod, in order to have it's textures overwrriten.
If it turns out you made the wrong choice, all you need to do is tell Vortex to load that mod AFTER the other mod, and Vortex automatically restores all of the overwritten files and then overwrites the proper files.
So, feel free to use NMM, if you like not knowing which mods are conflicting, or which textures/meshes etc are overwritten or underwritten.
People claim tat NMM is better because it doesn't DO anything, and doesn't Warn you of any problems, it sits back and lets you make the worst possible load order imaginable.
To each their own.
You can download the latest version of NMM at Github, there's no point in continuing this, as these "Nexus, I speak for trillions of users when I say I don't like Vortex because it's too hard to use, (mainly because I didn't bother reading the knowledge base or watching any tutorial videos) and you need to go back to NMM because I know because I'm a expert" threads never go well.
