The Morrowind directory should be kept as clean as possible
With Mod Organizer's virtual file system there is no need to install mods here directly.
Mods can be stored anywhere
Mod Organizer and OpenMW can both be configured to load mods from any directory.
For OpenMW, each mod folder needs to be added to
data="C:/mw-mods/mod1" data="C:/mw-mods/mod2" data="C:/mw-mods/mod3"
Mod Organizer profiles can be easily copied around
Mod profiles can be backed up or copied between machines, as described here.
Install & Load Order
The install order of mods is determined by their priority in Mod Organizer 2.
Plugin files can be manually re-ordered in Mod Organizer ("Plugins" tab), or they can be sorted automatically by running mlox through Mod Organizer.
This load order is preserved when exporting to OpenMW. This is again stored in
content=Morrowind.esm content=Tribunal.esm content=Bloodmoon.esm content=mod1.esp content=mod2.esp content=mod3.esp
