MO or NMM? (Or other?)

I used both. They are both about equal any more. Used to be that MO was better because it didn't load files into the base game so it was safer to remove the mods you wanted to remove. Now they both keep the files separate. They both work well with a variety of mods. Both have a few faults.

I am currently using NMM for FO4 and MO for Skyrim. I haven't tried out NMM's profile system yet, so I can't make a comparison there. MO certainly has quite a learning curve (I still have trouble with the Overwrite folder sometimes), but I feel like the way MO points out mod conflicts helped me a lot in understanding what is actually going on in my game.

I see it the same way as Luthien does. I LOVE MO, being able to see what gets overwritten by a mod and what not is great for resolving conflicts. As for NMM, I may use it for FO4, but I still think MO does everything that NMM does better.

In the long run, I would definitely try out both and then pick what you like more, it is not much difference.

The Overwrite file can be a pain as you should copy its contents into an appropriate place every time it pops up. I put mod related files in their respective folder. I keep the conflicts resolutions in a separate folder where I can empty it out if everything blows up. It is often unclear where an overwrite file goes. Some people say it doesn't matter where you put these files and just put them into any folder indiscriminately, but that is a very bad idea as it causes mods to linger even after deleting them. Also, if you are modding, you have to be very careful to save the modded version or you will lose all your work.

It is correct to say MO gives you more and better control, but it is also a lot more work.

Thanks for the replies, for now I'm going to use NMM I think, as I used MO for F:NV, and I haven't used NMM in a year (it didn't have profiles). What are some good mods to start out with before I go off the deep end? 

 

P.S. I installed SKSE and SkyUI, and for some reason Skyrim is running really slowly, and freezes/stutters a lot. Any fixes?
