    I was wondering if there was a guide on how to make weapon packs (or mod packs in general). I don’t mean making your own weapons and such, but rather using existing mods on the nexus and bundling them together kinda like the Misriah Armory does with its weapons. Anything to reduce my esp count would help. I use almost 255 esps and leave some room for new mods but juggling mods is getting annoying and probably isn’t good for game stability.

    What mod manager are you using?

    I currently use NMM, I have little experience on Wyre Bash but if there’s a simple tutorial I’m willing to try it. Assuming it can merge esps like I think it can. Or possibly try making esls, from what I’ve heard you can’t correctly use them through NMM.

    Making your own esl's is fine but I don't want to recommend it as a solution for this kind of issue anymore. Its fine, but maybe there are better alternatives.

    The other angle you could try is upgrading to a current mod organizer.

    The Community NMM which supports ESL
    https://github.com/Nexus-Mods/Nexus-Mod-Manager/releases

    or
    Vortex which supports marking mods as light on the fly from within the MO.



    This is what I am talking about with vortex:

    I tried Vortex a while back and migrating from NMM didn’t go over smoothly, it copied all my mods and when I went to delete the stuff on NMM it broke everything. I’ll take a look at the video when I get the chance(at work). How would Vortex or another mod manager give me more room with esps besides esls?

    The video will show you. :bye

    The bottom line is any esp file that can be flagged as esl can be done with one click inside of vortex. esp-flagged-as-esl have an advantage as they don't count to the 255 limit and they can still be organized just like an esp. You can't do that with a real .esl. :good

    Just watched the video, that is sure to save some space. I should probably go easy on adding mods but I doubt I’ll be able to restrain myself.

    Not all of them but more than you should ever need.

    I am nudging you.

    Sounds like you are outgrowing your current set-up.

    Should I start a new save?
    I just got a new pc but didn’t exactly upgrade my software, was just real comfortable with NMM.

    It just a suggestion.

    If you do switch I am sure you will feel some pain but in the long run I think you will be better off.

    I would trash the current save getting used to a new mod organizer, and once you are comfortable with it, then that is what I would do "start a new playthrough".

    I am sure in the process of moving everything over things would get jumbled up a bit.

    If you do switch I recommend watching the gopher videos in his vortex series.

    also, this might help understand vortex “groups”
