There are very few "Features" in NMM.

It can download, it can install (blindly, because it has no clue if there are file conflicts etc)

That's all of it's "Features"

Why do Vortex haters always come to these threads to talk about how they love NMM and hate Vortex?
That's so tedious to read through such uninformed negative opinions about Vortex, from people who have never used it.
They just hate for the sake of hating it, and are scared of change.

I want the good old style of installing & enabling mods like NMM had, not the new vortex style which "links" or whatever the mods into the folder, i will never be able to use Vortex in my life sadly, but i guess great for all of you who find it better... sadly i'm now 4ever stuck on manual mod installing :/ RIP me ever playing Skyrim & FO4 again...


You DO realize that NMM does this too right?
Go look at your Hard Drive, in your Mod Manager folder is a folder called "VIRTUAL INSTALL" where NMM would actually install the mods, and THEN link them to the game DATA folder.

All you need to do is make sure your Vortex Mod Staging Folder is on the same drive as your game, you can watch Gopher's Video about it, instead being overlay dramatic that you can never play Skyrim again, simply because you don't want to put the effort into setting it up properly.

Vortex is a great tool, i love it, only problem what i have, installing a mod, the plugin seems active, i sort with loot, and plugin is not active, everytime i must check manualy plugin on, off, on to get sure it is active, goes me a little bit on my nerv.

Why are you sorting with LOOT when it's already built in to Vortex?

This would be really, really great. Even if it doesn't handle game saves, just saving the mods and the load order would be a huge improvement.

You guys sounds like the people that think shooters, girlfriends, and any anime that isn't a loli love triangle middle school drama is for low brow plebs.

Vortex just works.  If there are conflicts, the sorting rules you have access to, and LOOT, are more than sufficient for anyone with reading comprehension to figure out how to get the load order to do what they want.  I didn't like it either when I first realized how it sorted mods, but it works.  If you think it breaks your Skyrim because it doesn't allow you to manually specify the exact load order for all your non-conflicting CBBE mods, sorry, but that's a PEBCAK error, not a Vortex one.

+1 for this.  Just bought a new PC and moving everything over.  This would have made life a lot easier.

Some mods stopped installing. After last Vortex update, which happened for me on 17.03 I started recieving error:
"there is no unicode byte order mark. cannot switch to unicode"
Any way to fix? Those mods were DEFINITELY working until recently. No updates on mod site either.
