Stuff this mod sorts
================================



The different tags ( ), [ ] and { } changes the order they show up at in the sorting.

Some head items in game that are being sorted can contain mods but as it was only around 4 items i let it slide (not counting railroad mods)


Stuff it doesn't sort atm
================================

At first I couldn't sort the prefixes the mods created on armors and weapons as it would ruin the sorting.
But that is now possible with the help of mods that changes the order mod prefixes show up in the item names, like these mods "Better Armor and Weapon naming and sorting" and "Armor Tag Sorting"



Compatibility

================================

The .esp version will conflict with other .esp mods that changes the same FormIDs, depending on load order they will overwrite each other.
The .STRINGS version is compatible with other .esp mods unless they change the item names as those changes are loaded into the fallout4.esm file directly but if a .esp mod changes the item names those changes will override the string files. I have included some compatibility string versions for FDI (you don't need those if you use the .esp version)

Feedback
================================

Constructive criticism and tips are welcome, reporting bugs would be appreciated just make sure you have installed everything correctly and it's my mod that causes the bug. Also compatibility problems with other .esp mods aren't really bugs as it's in the nature of .esp mods please don't report those as bugs.


Credits
================================

Thanks to:
McGuffin that made the tool Fallout 4 Translator
Stryke131 that made Fallout 4 String Patcher
Delta4873 for pointing me in the right direction in learning how to create .esp files.


Latest Update 2.6.1

================================

Fixed some bugs.
Added String file versions to the installer.

The small 2.6.1 fix was to update the .esp files to match the changes the latest fo4 update did to the fallout4.esm file.

Thanks to the people that donated! <3

Frequently Asked Questions
================================
Q: Can you add new sorting options like sort by newest items?

A: No i can't add new sorting modes, only change the item names to let the games built in alphabetical sorting change the order.

Q: Does this work with other languages?

A: This mod would turn the sorted items into English, If you translate this file please credit me :)
