Does Vortex/LOOT sort or process disabled plugins? When I have a lot of disabled plugins (232 at this point), it seems that the Sort process bogs down and takes forever. If I manually remove the disabled plugins from the \Data\ folder the sort time is significantly reduced.
- If Vortex is sorting disabled plugins, is there a way to opt out of this process?
The reason for the disabled plugins is they are included in a merged plugin. The mods themselves need to remain Enabled and Deployed so the merge can utilize the assets. Manually removing the plugins from the \Data\ folder was a temporary fix just to test. But I can't leave them like that because they would be removed from the Staging Folder as well. They need to be in the Staging Folder the next time I rebuild the merge for maintenance, updates, add/remove plugins, etc. because zMerge uses the plugin within the Staging Folder to determine which assets go with which plugin.
- Or, is there a way to remove the plugins from \Data\ without Vortex removing them from the Staging Folders?
I'm open to suggestions here.
