mod presets/lists

Post by Ostrei » Sat Oct 15, 2016 9:38 am

It would be great to have presets (lists of mods that should be enabled with one click + disables all other) because if you have 2 maps you play on with different mod sets it is very annyoing to always go through every mod, toggle the correct ones and to find that one mod that you forgot. This gets especially annoying if you have 5dim or bob mods because there are so many single ones to toggle.

For realization i have already looked into the factorio API and have not found anything that lets you change the (mods-) menu.

TL;DR: On click on a defined list -> all the mods in the list active, everything else deactivated.

This is kind of doable now, using the --mod-directory argument in the launch shortcut.

I (currently) have 7 factorio shortcuts on my desktop, all linked to different mod folders (bobs, angels, yuoki, dytech, vanilla+, etc etc) - That way, I just click the relevant shortcut to load the game with ONLY the mods I want for that specific map.
