Another Sorting Mod-2016
Original ASM Mod here

A comprehensive and Up-to-Date Sorting and Display Mod

Records Managed and Sorted by ASM-2016, 2096 (6.6)
ASM-2016+ (542) 

Another Sorting Mod 2016 updates ulcf999s  excellent, Another Sorting Mod. Most items will now sort properly
and thus provides a less tedious experience while enhancing inventory management. 
Updated for the latest USLEEP 3.0.9+ as well as updated patches for selected mods.
This version is a complete replacement and does not require the original mod, or any of its files.

The original mod has a fomod installer with numerous weight  options, vanilla, light, realistic as well as options for skill books, quest books and soul gems. Those are no longer necessary. ASM-2016 integrates all those options into one, seamless mod.

ASM-2016 *REQUIRES* USLEEP, All DLC and Cutting Room Floor


<Ammunition> - Sorts arrows and bolts (Arrow - Type, Bolt - Type)

Note: Ammo power in ASM(Core) is based on Vanilla values.
For WaFR ammo strength, use  ASM Core and ASM-2016+

Ever thought it was a little unrealistic how you can carry infinite arrows , bolts and spears around Skyrim?
For added Ammo immersion, try Weighted Arrows by Joubarbe. Set to .1 weight.

<Crossbows> Dragonborn Crossbow Sorting

<Armor> -Sorts various amors, clothes as well as vanilla jewelry. For full jewelry sorting of CCoR and CCF items, use ASM-2016+.
 500+ items sorted and organized for CCoR\CCF via 2016+

<Books> - Totally overhauled sorting and display for the majority of books, notes, letters, orders and recipes you can find in world.(Some Notes are Letters now and vice versa). Former Quest and skill Books optional now integrated into main file. 

<Crafting> - Ores, Ingots, Gems etc. (Ore - Ebony, Ingot - Steel, etc.)

<Dragon Priest Mask Sorting> - Dragon Mask - Xxxx

<Food> -
 Foods are sorted by <groups - type> (Mammoth - Raw, Salmon - Steak etc) 

<Ingredients> - Similar to food (Mountain Flower -Xxx, Egg - Chicken etc)

<Miscellaneous> - Clutter\Misc items sorted by Class and type(Jug - Silver, Dwemer - Xxx) Weight, Septim, keywords harmonized with CCF\WaFR

<Potions> - Sorted by type\strength (Fortify Illusion II, Restore Health V etc).
Player-made *potions are always sort to the top of inventory (ie *Fortify Stamina I)
Poison Potions sorted separately > [Poison] xxxx
*Now with realistic potion weights

 <Soul Gems> - Numerically sorted and by status, Full\Empty. ie Soul Gem I (petty) Soul Gem V (Grand) etc. 

 <Spells> - Sorted by Archetype AND Rank - Fire: [ I - Bolt ], Armor: [ V - Dragonhide ] 
Bonus: The two light spells got a small tweak...

<Staffs> - Staffs now sorted by Archetype, rank, and renamed to match ASM's harmonized standard

All spells, scrolls,vendor tomes, recipes and staffs descriptions use a standard format.

<Categorization> - ASM also attempts to re-categorize some items ie, some notes are no longer categorized as books, skulls categorized as clutter etc.

Realistic weights. Most weights are based on Skyrim.exe and also latest USLEEP changes where applicable. Weights are a combination of Vanilla, USLEEP, Realistic and some derived from CCF. Does NOT replace CCF, but is compatible with it. Pelts are heavy, ore and ingots are heavy, scrolls are light(0.1), potions have scaled weights. Weights are a hybrid of Vanilla, C&CF, ASM-2016

>Bash Patch users. Make sure ASM-2016 has /names/stat tag enabled before making your patch<


As with any other sorting mod, ASM will "conflict" with most overhaul mods that deal with potions, crafting materials, spells, Clutter, books and so on. Nothing can be done about this, except to experiment (OR use a supported patch if available). ASM integrates with WAF, CCF, CCoR, etc. Bash patches may overwrite ASM so be sure you have /names bash tag enabled. Always place ASM-2016 below CCF, WAF, CCoR.
For best results, always sort your load order by hand rather than LOOT.

Partial List of specific and general Mods categories that are made redundant, obsolete, or conflict with ASM-2016,
where no patch file is provided (not 100% exhaustive) 

Better Skill and Quest Books Names (redundant-conflicts)
Anything by Headbomb (obsolete)
Anything with 'ASM' in it, ASM knockoffs, etc.(redundant-conflicts-obsolete)
Any other 'sorting' type' mod(conflict-redundant-likely obsolete)
Immersive Jewelry (conflicts, mainly 2016+ add on)
Spell overhauls-varies. Spell overhauls that use vanilla forms(conflicts), custom forms\ID's (no conflict)
Book\Scroll overhauls (conflict) 
Alchemy\cooking overhauls (conflicts) See optionals for CACO support.

In cases of:
conflicts - adjust load order accordingly to have desired mod 'win' conflict. Or install patch if available 
redundant or obsolete - indicates mod is not needed(remove) or features already present in ASM-2016

ASM-2016 uses no scripts, consumes no resources, and cannot damage your save game.


Q: How does ASM-2016 coverage compare to the original ASM? 
A: Aside from a enormous amount of updating and format overhauls to the original mod, ASM-2016 sorts more records. Over 38% more records than ASM-2013. 2096 (v6.6) Vs 1512 (v1.5.1.3). Over 60% more if using 2016+. While ASM-2016 core framework is derived from the original ASM, ASM-2016 is its own, standalone mod, with new ESPs and totally rebuilt patches.

Q: Does ASM-2016 only change names?
A: No, despite its name, ASM-2016 covers more than just names. Weight and Base Costs have also been modified in some instances. This is reflected in its broad compatibility with CCoR, WaFR, C&CF. Other edits are done to correct inconsistencies in records USLEEP has not, or won't fix, ie potion pricing errors, or books with incorrect attributes. Some weights have been adjusted to be more realistic on certain items. Scrolls are now weigh .1, rather than vanillas .5. The majority of records are straight vanilla renames, but many items have had values adjusted for realism, game-play, and immersion where appropriate.

Q: Does ASM-2016 Require Clothing and Clutter fixes, WaFR?
A: No, but ASM-2016 is fully compatible with those mods on its own and will function w/o, but is designed to work with them. They are recommended mods.
2016+ Does require CCoR, C&CF

Q: Is ammo strength changed in ASM-2016?
A: No, ASM-2016 uses vanilla\USLEEP values. The 2016+ file, does change ammo power.(WaFR compliant).

Q: What is {P} that appears on some items for?
A: Items tagged with a {P} indicate permanent\persistent items. They will remain in the world no matter what, unless sold to a vendor.
 Any known items to posses this hidden permanency flag are tagged as such.

Q: Most items are sorted, but I find the odd one(s) that are not. Is ASM broken?
A: No, you have a conflicting mod (or bash patch is not up-to-date), or a load order issue, that is overwriting the entries in question.
See Load order matters!

Q: Any plans for a weightless, or reduced weight version?
A: No. ASM-2016 is a singular solution with a heavy emphasis on realism and immersion. This is why it has been made compatible with Clothing and Clutter fixes. Making  heavy and bulky items, ie ingots, pelts, Dwemer scrap etc, weigh little or nothing in world is not a goal of ASM-2016.

Q: Can I  merge your optional compatible files for my load order?
A: Of course, most should merge fine, YMMV of course. I don't offer specific support for custom optional merges.
Be sure to use Merge Plugins 2.2.3+ by Mator, and NOT Xedits built in merge script. 

Q: Want to submit a compatibility file for ASM-2016?
A: User created patches are welcome and appreciated. But, with the following provisions.
-All submitted patches get reviewed, and may only be hosted here.
-No patches for customized load orders, redundant, obsolete mods etc.

Patch Naming conventions
For ESP Itself: ModName_ASM-2016.esp

-Patches MUST be made using the LATEST version of ASM-2016 as a base, no exceptions.
3rd party patches made with obsolete versions will be not be acceptable.
Version numbers-Do not include any, I look after those.
