  1. I haven’t been keeping up with modding drama. Isn’t this a good thing? The main thing people always complain about is mod compatibility and the hassle of setting shit up.

  2. this is based. being able to download a huge bundle of mods has always been great. it saves a lot of time and energy, giving you more freedom to search for obscure gems. you aren’t getting burnt out re-downloading your usual 200 individual mods again one at a time. the real problem is these insufferable fucking homosexuals who freak out if there’s even the slightest chance they won’t have their name on the credits in huge bold letters. ironically, i never pay attention to who the author is specifically because i know i still have 199 other mods to go collect and i’m trying to get it done as quickly as possible. this collections shit is a much better direction than what was happening when everyone was pushing for paid mods.

    • Yeah but that’s just it. I’m not sure if you can use it to curate your own list privately, and whether or not it can include links from other sites? At least with Wabbajack I can do it with my offline archive.

      How is this bad?

      Because Nexus.

  3. It’s just wabberjack but with vortex instead, why is this supposed to be a problem. The fact that it existing is the reason drama modders got their shit pushed in and can’t just up and delete their mods because they’re stressed out from having to dilate so much is a good thing.

  4. I mean sounds like what it’s basically been anyway. Most people only used their proprietary dogshit patreons or subscribestars for more niche mods, so I liked the permanent archival thing nexus was going for, I think collections are good because it means people won’t ask every single day a billion times "how do I install tale of two wastelands" or "what’s the best mods for tale of two wastelands" or "what make skyrim look gewd". There will just be collections for them to use, that make the normalhomosexuals happy. I don’t make mods though, maybe there’s some shit nexus does that I don’t know about, but this only seems like a good thing to me, don’t know why people are shitting on it.

    • That depends. How do you like closed systems? It will be a boon for some and a plague for others, mainly because of the toxic social aspect that the Nexus has fostered for years now.

      • As long as some chud can’t go and delete its mod uploads when it’s having a particularly unstable day, I’m happy. Same with the drama queens.

        • I totally agree. Preaching to the choir really. But here’s the rub, that’s part of the social toxicity I was reffering to. But instead of manning up and making the Cathedral model standard which would put an end to that entitled horseshit, what’s happening is that ultimately it’s all just a push for more Vortex installs to peddle their ecosystem.

      • I don’t give a shit about mod creators and their social meda circlejerking communities. I just want to download some fucking mods.

      That’s kinda the problem. Curating will always be closed to anyone not attached to Robin’s dick.
