I am pretty sure that if you change the attributes of file it would be hashed to a different CRC key.
Do any of the tools listed have issues with using optimized versions of mods? Offhand this would only be an issue if any file CRC (or equivalent) used is based on unoptimized textures.
The person(s) maintaining STEP should keep unoptomized textures as a part of the directories to be emulated by the STEP installer.
I think adding in automated texture optimizing and resizing for STEP makes a ton of sense. See the post I made in the core mod definition thread.

[color=#ffda00]I agree. That should be a manual process and is better addressed at the level of the source mod on the Nexus.
I was going to suggest that any tools should be capable of accepting either unoptimized or already optimized mods vs. only dealing with unoptimized ones. IMO it is better to optimize mods separately from an automated installation' date=' as I mentioned in another thread.[/color']

Yep, again, the solution is fixing the source by communicating with the mod authors. We should build a list of authors of STEP:Core mods that need to be contacted, and I will take care of communicating this to evaluate the potential. There won't be many for STEP:Core.
Vanilla can be optimized via the BAT scripts or not at all, as most will be overwritten by SRO optimal if is is used.

I've coded a nice little ini editing tool.
In Python you can load ini files directly into an object.
The one I've made can read in an ini with custom settings and will change the original ini accordingly.
It works, but there isn't any exception handling/interface etc.
