Home Introduction Initial Setup MO2 Utilities Bug Fixes HUD/UI Visuals Gameplay Overhauls Final Steps Appendix

Creating a Separator in MO2

  1. Right-click anywhere in the left pane of MO2 and select All Mods -> Create Separator
  2. Name the separator Gameplay

This step contains only mods that improve the gameplay without making drastic changes or making the game much more difficult. These mods are fully recommended for a first-time playthrough. The next step will contain "overhaul" mods that make the game much harder and more interesting, but are not recommended for a first playthrough.
