Permissions and credits
Change Log:
V2.0FINAL Persons that have never used V1.0 should use this file. If you are using V1.0, get update V1.1 so that your already set categories are not altered.

V1.1 - Added sub-category for "NPCs - Creatures" intended for use with non-model/texture replacement mods. Also added sub-category to "Utilities" for "LOD Generation."

V1.0 features 20 main categories with 30 sub-categories. See photos.

Why it exists:

I wasn't happy with the sorting of the original Mod Organizer 2 categories and thought I would share.

What it does:

Changes the Mod Categories for Skyrim LE in Mod Organizer 2 to be a little more cleaned up and streamlined.

Manual Install ONLY

First, make a backup of the original "categories.dat" file.

Place "categories.dat" into the following location on your computer:

Root(C:\, D:\, etc.)"Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\ModOrganizer\Skyrim"

Please do not post or re-upload to any other site. If this is found off of Nexus Mods, it was done so without my permission.
