About this mod

Vortex support for Starsector v0.95a.

Permissions and credits
NOTE: I no longer update this extension, although it should still work fine (as of 0.96a). I've created my own mod manager called SMOL (google it, probably against the rules to advertise it here) that has a number of tools specifically for Starsector. 
Includes support for mod version and author(s) for mods installed from file, rather than from Nexus Mods.

This extension will read mod_info.json, stripping out comments that use the '#' sign, and extract the mod version and mod author(s) from the file, allowing Vortex to display this useful information, which is normally limited only to mods that are downloaded from Nexus Mods.

Check for Updates will show updates for mods that have Version Checker support by providing a button to open the mod's forum page.

The displayed mod name will be unchanged (if downloaded from Nexus Mods) or the name of the mod's archive (if installed manually).
This is due to some mod authors releasing multiple iterations of a mod with
the same version, with the only difference being in the filename.
For example, "" and "" often both have a version of 3.0.0. Since the beta number is important information, it should not be replaced by the name in the mod_info.json file, which may simply be "Mod Name".
