Whats the chances you can be drafted into helping Utumno with Wrye Bash ( mostly python ) ? :)
It now supports Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Skyrim SE - Utumno has nearly finished the major refactoring work he has been single handedly managing for five years, and is after the 307 release ( its now in public beta on all 4 Nexus sites ) going to need help particularly with Patchers for the latter three games ( while not losing sight of keeping Oblivion working well )
.. And let Tannins new baby NMM and its new virtual capabilities / profiles take over from MO ?
I am probably going to get my ears bitten ( understandably, MO has become established as an advanced tool many love and depend upon its features, so will be hoping for undivided attention on MO problems )
But really, the community desperately needs the capabilities of a fully functioning set of patchers. What Wrye Bash does for the Oblivion community with its Bashed Patch is just superb, to have the same capabilities for Skyrim / FO4 / SSE would negate any arbitrary merging completely by software designed to deconflict Load orders to anyones requirements, with any possible load order. It basicly enables anyone to create a plugin by importing / merging records from other plugins, so that you can keep your general deconflicted Load Order, and leapfrog important records on a case by case basis per the users requirements, and have it load last to win.
If my assumption is correct and MO is to become replaced in all it does with NMM .. Seems like a project we will no longer need eventually ? ( or at least duplicated effort ).
If I am wrong then pardon the intrusion / suggestion, no harm meant.
Just assistance for Utumno occasionally from someone on a similar level of understanding with this code would be marvellous and very much appreciated. I tried python once and snakes just do my head in, volunteers who are capable of helping such an advanced project are unfortunately non-existant.
Utumno has been pretty damned marvellous with all the work he has turned his hand to so far, but openly admits he still does not grok patchers for the project.
Edit : Note this is not an attempt to seduce you away from this project, just a request for help where your talents could be temporarily applied on a desperately needed project at this time.
You may also find some mutually beneficial solutions on the Wrye Bash Github project pages.
I do appreciate its a big ask though. Thanks for listening.
