    NMM is an omni-tool that is compatible with many "moddable" games such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, and Dragon Age. It's sole purpose is to make mods both not overwrite base game files and improve compatibility by letting users determine load order. NMM is the spiritual successor to the Fallout Mod Manager and even shares many features. One of the main features other than load order is the ability to launch using a custom executable (for instance, a script extender or a memory allocation executable for 32-bit processes) and even installing mods by putting them in a custom folder (useful for script extenders that use .dll injectors placed in a separate folder). The design is improved upon the NMM, but maintains simplicity. Icons are used in place of labeled buttons, though hovering over them will give a description of their use. A (minor) flaw in the mod loader itself is that it needs to restart when manually installing a mod into its folders. On slower computers, this means sitting for an extra several seconds to install the mod to the game when simply adding a reset button (i.e: refreshing the mod directory) would almost immediately churn up results. The site it pulls from is nice, I guess. Downloads for normal users are capped at 1 mbit per second, which makes downloading larger or multiple mods a pain. However, downloading multiple mods from separate servers can mitigate this problem. However, the sluggishness of the website itself results in a 2-30 second wait time between page loads even on a broadband connection. Of course, to rate by this alone seems a little unfair as it is advertised as a mod manager. For what it does, it's mostly efficient. Though in beta, it is completely operational and will even update already downloaded mods that were downloaded from the website in question (which directly connects to the download servers rather than going through the high-traffic website). I have not tried the mod loader with anything other than the Bethesda's reboot of Interplay's Fallout series, but for what I have used it for, it does the job.

    I have been using Nexus Mod Manager for a while now for several games. Some problems: 1) Requires access to at startup to be used, even if you just with to make local mod changes. Unfortunately is frequently off-line/unavailable/under heavy load especially on the weekends, so you cannot use it during these times. If you require mod changes to play a game you are out of luck. 2) Version number tracking: Mod authors almost overwhelmingly deliver multiple files and options each with different version numbers. Nexus Mod Manager only provides support and tracking for one version number per mod, not per file. On the typical mod users will always get upgrade warnings despite their being no upgrade available for that file. Note that this also leads to many repeat downloads/wasted bandwidth as users try to erroneously update. Requires users to remember which version update warnings are not actually real. 3) With a potentially large list of mods, there is no way for the user to sort or filter mod names - requires user to remember categories/mod names. Apart from these problems, when it works it works Ok. The biggest benefit to using Nexus Mod Manager is that it currently has the largest community of mod authors contributing to it. This may change as other services (such as steam workshop) continue to up their game and compete for mod authors and their users attention and needs.

    At first glance NexusMods is a brilliant site, it's helpful.. and the mods are usually great on there! But don't let this fool you, when you dig deeper and start to experience the social side of the website like the forums and/or the live chat you will realise as much as the moderators may be helpful with your modding needs, they're lacking in social skills themselves, you so much say something they disagree with.. 1 simple word, and you are kicked from the chat but on top of that their website too. If you are unfortunate to get banned.. which it seems to be a common occurance.. for someone who had said "damn" or infact quoted a line from the game itself, it's pretty impossible to resolve the issue. It states Banned users are not welcome back".,.. Their form for saying sorry states how useless the service is by pretty much saying you can try to get your account reinstated but frankly we dont care! They don't remove your mods after you are banned, or close your account and if you so much as know someone who is banned.. hope to god that they don't find out as a friend of mine got banned too!. if there was any other site or means that is friendlier than Nexusmods.with such a vast collection of mods.. I'd recommend it but I've not found one anywhere yet! Which is a shame. (apart from steam workshop!) Yes I've got banned, but until then.. I was oblivious to how many other people had too due to ridiculous reasons which can be found on many other skyrim forums with complaints about NexusMods! My advice? Don't make general conversation on the service, talk about mods and avoid using most negative terms in any language if possible otherwise.. say goodbye :D
