mergeing a mod


following the step guide  i just want to no for mods that have more then one downloaded file for example..   (Embers HD) is it ok to merge them all together when installing with MO.. for example     embers HD + forge addon + ultimate fire effects compatabilty patch.  mods that have more then one download i would prefer to merge as one file rather then have them in an individule order.  and this gose for every mod on the list that has more then one download for it.  thanks

You can merge if you wish but you don't actually gain anything in doing so. In fact it could be argued that you lose the ability to disable a feature, such as the 'forge addon', by merging.


The only thing you need to keep in mind is when a different module has the exact same named files in it with different attributes, then merging isn't a good idea.


Best bet, follow the guides to the letter and if they say merge, then merge, if they say keep separate, then keep them separate. If they advise nothing, then the choice is yours.

      I am planning to add mods that may conflict with each other in the future, would a merged patch ensure that the don't conflict? and with the amount of mods i have right now, is it even necessary?
      for the mod cleaning, i heard that you shouldn't do it if you are just an everyday user/casual user and not an experienced modder? Is it even that necessary?
      so far is my mod load order, if needed,
      EDIT: Moved this to the "General" forum as it has nothing specific to Mod Organizer in it.

      So i created a merged patch after adding some mods and I know that you should put the merged patch LAST in the order. However, should you put it last in your load order even under plugins not included in the merged patch? Esp. mods that state to not include them in a merged patch?

      Good day,
      When I install the file 'Update - Male corundum Dragon Priest mask texture fix" for 'Improved Closefaced Helmets (Legendary Edition)' I am not prompted to merge the two files as described in the detailed instructions for that mod. Would it be okay to do this myself manually?
