Version 2.0 now in PDF
With this update, I (BigandFlabby) rewrote part of the document to help with the flow a bit. As such, all of the stuff originally intended as advanced detail for Mod Author's to make their mods into ESL files has been removed at this time. The main use of this document is now targeted towards more novice users who just need to open up some load order slots. The reasoning for this is that the procedure required for the advanced use cases need to be done with deep understanding of the inner workings of each mod. This would typically be the Mod Author, and generally not the average mod user.
