MO 2 and Bethesda mods from their site.

Question

Hi today i wanted to install the unofficial fallout4 patch. I only found that patch on the bethesda  mods site.  I downloaded that mod  and in fallout 4 settings "mod" i enabled that mod.

Here i got aware that i had already some of their mods installed. I found like 10 of these mods enabled.

 

Now how does MO2 handle these mods  ,( i think MO cant handle these because they are not installed through MO).

Here is the problem..... Those Bethesda mods are directly written to the Fallout 4 data folder.  But how can i manage the load order  when MO cant see those mods?

And if a Bethesda mod conflicts with a MO2 installed mod what to do?

 

THX for help

Yes, it's true that mods downloaded via the Bethesda.net platform won't be managed by Mod Organizer, however, MO reads the non-virtual Data folder just fine, which is where any Beth.net plugins will land, so you can still see them in MO and be able to move them around in your load order.

 

One of the major benefits of MO is how it can keep a clean Data folder. This is not possible per se when using Beth.net to get mods, but OTOH, all Beth.net mods will be neatly packaged with "ModName.esp" and "ModName - Stuff.ba2" files, so the clutter from a ton of mods with loose files overwriting each other is not really a thing for Beth.net mods, so if you manually wish to remove something, you can just delete "My Awesome Mod.esp" and any "My Awesome Mod - *.ba2" files in the Data folder.

 

PS. The UFO4P is also available on Nexus among other places: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/4598

      Hello there, I've been trying to find a way to color the text for separators. The text color is either black and white, but sometimes it's black on a separator that shares the same color of others that have white text. I would really like to be able to control the color of both the separator bar and it's text.

      Hi everyone,

      I have a portable installation of MO2 on a different drive than the OS, same drive where Skyrim is installed, and since I updated to Windows 11 I can't start Skyrim through MO2 either with or without all mods, SKSE. If I start it from outside of MO2 in any way, it works fine (with SKSE too). What could be the issue?

      Hey everybody, i ran into an issue that i was hoping someone would help me with.
      last night when i was installing my mods from STEP 2.0.0 Guide, my PC accidentally turned off and on again, after it turned back on and i went to open MO2 i found all my mods rearranged alphabetically into the last separator, and all of them were unticked. as seen in the screenshots.
      Is there a way to revert this and not go through the menace of rearranging all of the 310 mods into their separators? 
      Thanks.
