Mod applying order
« on: October 14, 2020, 04:57:16 am »
How to ensure mod applying order? I like to build my mod as a further modification to another mod. Therefore, I like the base mod to be loaded first and my mod to override it as needed. How can I do this if I want to keep them separate?

Mods are loaded in the order as they appear on the GUI.

Mod on the top of the list is loaded first, mod on the bottom of the list last.

That I understood. 😁
Moreover, I have observed they are ordered there by appearance time. I.e. newly added mods are placed last.
The question is: can this be arbitrarily changed?

Next to each mod there are buttons to raise and lower in the list.
But sorting can only be done manually.  It is impossible to specify the desired order in the mod itself.

Got it. Good to know.
Upon thinking about it, I've decided to not rely on other mods. Too cumbersome installation.
