An install order note indicates a required install order for two mods. Mod Picker users can submit install order notes on any mods on Mod Picker. Install order notes are displayed with automatic resolution options when editing a mod list on Mod Picker. See the contributions help page for general information about Mod Picker contributions.

Components

  • Two mods. The mods must both be submitted to Mod Picker in order to be specified on an Install Order Note.
  • An order. One of the mods should be installed before the other.
  • A description. This should cover what the install order issues are, including any relevant technical details such as what asset conflicts there are between the mods.

Submission

  1. Sign in to your Mod Picker account (or create one). (An account is required to submit an install order note.)
  2. Navigate to one of the two mods your note relates to. It doesn’t matter which mod you choose to add your note to, it will be listed on the pages of both of the mods you specify.
  3. Click the Install Order tab.
  4. Click the Add Install Order Note button.
  5. Specify the second mod by entering its name into the mod name input. You must choose the mod from the autocomplete dropdown to select it.
  6. Choose "Before" or "After" from the order dropdown. Before means the second mod should be installed before the first mod, After means the second mod should be installed after the first mod.
  7. Add a description. Be sure your description complies with the Submission Guidelines. Your description must be at least 256 characters long (~50 words).
  8. Click the Submit button. The prompts shall be automatically removed upon submission - you do not need to delete them yourself.

Submission guidelines

Before submitting an install order note please ensure that you have done your research and that the information in your note is accurate. Research steps can include evaluating asset conflicts, in-game testing, and referencing mod authors or other sources. If you cannot provide or reference any concrete evidence about the issue you probably should not be submitting a compatibility note on it.

Include your research and sources in your note, outlining the steps you took to reach your conclusions. If possible, include any steps that others can take to verify your findings. Finally, make sure that your note is coherent and follows the general submission guidelines.
