M8r98a4f2's Complex Sorter

Automatically add item sorting tags to all items for all common item sorters. Highly versatile and completely configurable: custom processing rules, custom tag sets, custom naming rules. You can just change anything to your liking. Standard rules support most custom mods out-of-the-box.

I have build the Complex Sorter for the prepared Item Sort shipped with FallUI. And a few users asked for the script. So here it is! It has grown in the meanwhile... Now you can customize just anything. Just take a look at the screenshots.

Description
Add Item Sorting tags to all items in all mods (vanilla and downloaded). You don't need endless item sorting patch files anymore, just one for all. Also have internal plugins that do various other tasks, like weightless items, add body slot numbers, patch recipes to be available for a specific workbench...
The default configuration will create an ESP exactly like the ones in the "FallUI Item Sorter Mod" packages, but with all your items from all your mods!
Just lean back and let the script do the work.

Important: Needs FO4Edit
If F04Edit is unknown to you and you haven't the intention to learn a little bit more about Fallout 4's modding, this mod is probably nothing for you.
This script is highly automated, but you still need to start it.
If you just want a ready-to-go package, simply install FIS - The New FallUI Item Sorter in Light or Basic mode!

Supported item sorters
Complex Sorter can automatically generate item sorting patches for the following item sorters:
