This mod renames items with tag prefixes so that they will sort better in the inventory.  The vision behind the sorting method is to:

1) Group like items together (notes, holotapes, keys, food, chems, etc)
2) Sort the most commonly used items near the top for easy accessibility
3) Modularize the options to give you the ability to customize which items to sort

Additional Optional Mod: Valdacil's Item Sorting - Not Junk

ValdacilsItemSorting-ZZ-DLCArmorBySlotOverride: This module is intended to override all other modules to set Armor sort method to BySlot.  This module is primarily for partial DLC users since the individual DLC modules only contain naming rules for vanilla + that DLC.  This module merges the 3 non-workshop DLC naming rules so you get consistent naming across all 3 non-workshop DLC.  If you load this module, you do NOT need to the load the vanilla ArmorBySlot module above.  This module needs to be loaded last to override any other naming rules from other modules.  (REQUIRES AWKCR, Automatron, Far Harbor, Nuka World)
ValdacilsItemSorting-ZZ-DLCArmorByClassOverride: This module is intended for those who prefer ArmorByClass.  If you use this module you do NOT need to load the vanilla ArmorByClass module above.  This module needs to be loaded last to override any other naming rules from other modules.  (REQUIRES AWKCR, Automatron, Far Harbor, Nuka World)

----DLC: Cosmetics Overrides----  (REQUIRES: AWKCR)
ValdacilsItemSorting-ZZ-DLCCosmeticsByClassOverride: This module is intended to override all other modules to set Cosmetics sort method to ByClass.  This module is primarily for partial DLC users since the individual DLC modules only contain naming rules for vanilla + that DLC.  This module requires the Far Harbor and Nuka World DLCs.  If you load this module, you do NOT need to load the CosmeticsByClass module above.  This module needs to be loaded last to override any other naming rules from other modules.  (REQUIRES AWKCR, Far Harbor and Nuka World)
ValdacilsItemSorting-ZZ-DLCCosmeticsByTypeOverride:  This module is intended for those who prefer CosmeticsByType.  If you use this module you do NOT need to load the vanilla CosmeticsByType module above.  This module needs to be loaded last to override any other naming rules from other modules.  (REQUIRES AWKCR, Far Harbor, and Nuka World)

----DLC: Weapon Override----  (REQUIRES: AWKCR)
ValdacilsItemSorting-ZZ-DLCWeaponsOverride: This module is intended for partial DLC (non-workshop DLC) owners to merge the weapons naming rules from the 3 non-workshop based DLCs since the individual DLC modules only contain naming rules for vanilla + that DLC.  If you load this module, you do NOT need to load the vanilla Weapons module above.  This module needs to be loaded last to override any other naming rules from other modules.  (REQUIRES: AWKCR, Automatron, Far Harbor, and Nuka World)


Compatibility
----------------------------
** See sticky post for specific mods **

This mod will conflict with any other mod that directly edits the same items (ie mods that change weight or stats of items). 

The weapons module does not modify weapon records (only naming rules) so should be compatible with mods that adjust weapon stats.  This requires AWKCR.

The armor module has been reworked to use the Armor & Weapons Keywords Community Resource so that it can rename armor without modifying the armor records (only naming rules).  This will make it compatible with any other armor mod that uses the Armor & Weapons Keywords Community Resource (such as Armorsmith 2.1 or higher), but incompatible with any mod that modifies vanilla armor without AWKCR.

Because this modifies the item names, my sorting mod will override names from either Better Item Sorting (STRINGS version) or Bhaal's Better Sorting (STRINGS version). 

This mod is fully compatible with Full Dialogue and NewDialogue.

Known Issues
----------------------------
- Armor, Power Armor and Weapons existing in the inventory or containers when the mod is installed will not be tagged.  Tagging will update when the item is modified at the crafting station.
- Cobalt, Gallium, Hydrocloric Acid, Tungsten and other items used for that quest are not sortable.  I renamed the objects, but they come up as "[Quest] Unidentified Sample XXX".  When they are identified as part of the quest, a script alters the names of the objects.  There are not tools available yet to modify those scripts.
- Named unique armor and weapons that were generated prior to loading this mod will not be sorted.
- Quest items tagged as [Quest] retain their tag even after they are no longer needed for the quest.  It would require significant scripting to fix this problem and would create potential problems and incompatibilities.  Most items can be manually renamed at the workbench where you can assign the correct tag to the item causing it to be sorted differently.

Installation
----------------------------

With NMM (highly recommended):
1. Download with Nexus Mod Manager and activate.  NMM will prompt for Default or Custom.  Choose Custom to install only certain modules.

Without NMM:
1. Download the file manually.
2. Rename the file to have extension .rar. 
3. Then use your favorite .7z, .zip, .rar program to extract the desired modules from the Data folder in the archive to your Data folder ie: C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\fallout 4\Data.
4. Then in the Fallout 4 launcher select the hidden plugin manager and select the modules to activate them.

Installation Notes
----------------------
IMPORTANT: Please read this entire notice as there seems to be a lot of confusion installing VIS and some things have changed.

1) Val's Picks - These 4 presets include my selections of modules with 4 different configurations (2 All DLC and 2 No DLC).  If one of these presets contains all of the modules you want to use, then you don't need to install any other modules.  Just select the Val's Picks you want and click next.

2) Val's Picks with Overrides - If one of the Val's Picks comes close but you want one or two modules different (like Val's Picks All DLC, but you want explosives on bottom), then select the Val's Picks and Customize boxes.  Then on the Customize screen select ONLY the module(s)  you want to override from Val's Picks (in the example you'd only select ExplosivesSortBottom).

3) Val's Picks with Partial DLC - If you do not own all of the DLC, then you can still select one of the 2 Val's Picks No DLC selections and the Customize box.  On the Customize screen select only the DLC modules you own.

4) DEF_INV Junk - If you want component tags for DEF_UI, you can still select a Val's Picks preset and Customize box.  On the Customize screen select one of the Junk modules with DEF_INV tags.  If you want NotJunk, you'll need to select that module also.

5) DLC Naming Rules - If you choose a Val's Picks and want ArmorBySlot and CosmeticsByClass then you do not need a DLC override (or any of the DLC modules for that matter).  But if you want ArmorByClass and/or CosmeticsByType, then there are DLC override modules for that.  The ArmorByClass override requires the 3 non-workshop DLCs.  The CosmeticsByType override requires Far Harbor and Nuka World.

Uninstallation
----------------------------
With NMM:
1. Deactivate/Uninstall the mod in NMM

Without NMM:
1. Delete any file named "ValdacilsItemSorting-*.esp" from your Fallout 4\Data folder.

Mod Recommendations
----------------------------
Armorsmith: v2.1 and higher uses AWKCR and is fully compatible with VIS
DEF_UI: UI mod to increase list size in pipboy, container, barter.  Replaces sorting tags with icons.  Valdacil's Item Sorting supported!!
Syringer Ammo Simpler Ingredients: Changes syringer ammo recipes so that they use the base components instead of junk items (ie. instead of baseball, it uses leather and cork)
Chem Redux: Really nice retex of all chems.  Requires a compatibility patch (included).
