With (in the future) 4.1 scripts, XML and W3strings as well.

Permissions and credits
THANK YOU!
We almost finish the changelog for the 1.32 vs 4.00 (Hotfix 2 included).
There will be soon a 4.1 update (and more), we probably won't do for all of them again, but will be in touch for the Scripts, XML and W3strings.
The last job for us is the XBM changed list.

Description

Hello Witcher 3 community.
The Next-Gen patche is finally available since 14th December 2022. As we were expecting, CDPR changed much more content but we don't know exactly which files or how they change it.

That's what this changelog does. With the contribution of many modders, we are preparing to find all the difference between 1.32 and Next-Gen and write on a sheet files. So this useful information will help everyone to update their mods for the free update Next Gen Patch.
The changelog is divided into:

Official Patch note by CD Projekt Red

Reason behind the project

Back to the year of 2015 and 2016. There was many patches to the game for which modders, at this time, has to keep their mods working at the current states, otherwise their mods would become redundant and impossible to use.
It even worser that they have to make a Steam and GOG version, until Unification Patch / Community Patch Base came out.

Since 2017, two thousand and more (+2,000) mods were created based on 1.31/1.32. Which around 3/4 of them become instantly Next Gen Compatible.
We don't want to waste all the work they did and so the changelog will help to update their mods for the current Next-Gen version.
Remember: Worked mod doesn't mean it's Next Gen Compatible! Unless the vanilla files hasn't been changed. So please modder, you have to update your mods.
