Prefix a description to items, for sorting. Currently has plugins for Books, Magazines, Cards, Food, Chems, Poisons, Crafting parts, Ammo parts, and Mods.

Honest Hearts: I have it but haven't played it yet. If someone can let me know what to class various ingestibles as (food, chem, toxin, whether it's a caft component etc) I could make a sorter for it.

For an actual search box to filter your item list by search string, check out my new Inventory Search.

For a scripted (compatible) item sorter mod, Project Nevada has one built in (defaults to off); however, for a cleaner/newer implementation, I would suggest pushthewinbutton's Universal Item Sorter.

Update 5/22/2011: 2.2
  • Updated Sorter - Combined and Sorter - Dead Money to incorporate fixes from Community Bugfix Compilation. Load Bugfix before Sorters.
  • Added new Optional modules: Empty Consumables and Empty Consumables - Dead Money.This will add empty syringes when using stimpaks, tin can from pork n beans, etc. Full list below at end of description.
  • If you use LFox's Bottle That Water, load it AFTER sorters.

Update 5/15/2011: 2.1
  • Fixed several wrong values in main file (value of stimpak, weight of empty syinge)
  • Updated items to 1.3 patch values
  • Updated main file to include new Misc Item Icons v0.9 release 4/27/2011
  • Updated patch for bivar's Weight Balance v1.0 release 12/6/2010
  • Added Dead Money patch. Please note that Dead Money is not compatible with Lightweight Sanitizer mod.
  • Changed Water to H2O prefix
  • antistar's WMX mod already prefixes his new modkits with MOD. I may see about a patch for WME.

Update 11/23/2010:
  • Added Optional file: Inventory Sorters RUS
  • Russian translation provided by Yavorovich

No update here, but Imp's More Complex Needs - New Vegas has a compatibility patch for this mod in its optional files.

Update 11/06/2010: 2.0a
  • Added new optional file to prefix "MOD:" on the new mods from Moddable Unique Weapons by alexandersig. The main file there still required. Load the optional patch after Moddable Unique Weps.esp
  • Update 11/04/2010: 2.0[list]
  • Rolled optional files T3T compat patch and Aid Crafting into the main file***. These two optionals are no longer needed in the load order. If you dislike/don't want these, you'll need to continue to use the older version of the mod. T3T is now fully built in.
  • Changed capitalization of Mod and Card categories to match others.
  • Removed unintended effect changed to: Iced Nuka Cola, Turbo, Ultrajet.
  • Added new optional file for compatibility with Weight Balance by Bivar.
  • Moved a few items to the "AID" category: Bitter drink, Stealthboy, NCR radio, Healing Powder...
  • Note: Lightweight Food Sanitizer by Morbide, has a compatibility version. It's the "plus" version on that page. If you use the Community Bugfix Compilation Patch, load Morbide's Plus version after it (Morbide's main non-compat version is part of the patch).
  • Note: Permanent Skill Mags by Holty07 has a compatibility version on its page.
  • Should be compatible with most repair list mods, since they edit formlists, not the objects.
***Example 2.0 load order:***
  • Compiled Patch.esp (if using Community Bugfix Compilation)
  • Weight Balance.esp (if using)
  • Inventory Sorter - Combined.esp
  • Inventory Sorter - Combined - Weighted.esp (if using Weight Balance)
