Nice to hear! I had thought about using Nexus's version when it rolls out, however my understanding is it will only be for Vortex, which we don't support. We'll look into other products eventually, and when they're available, because I know a lot of users would love such a thing. Even if there is just an automatic, "download and install" option, the rest of the Guide's details could be put into a "configuration" portion. However, doing so would likely require a separate Guide for users completely the Guide using a automation method; since at that point the mod tables wouldn't be necessary and a lot of information on the current/new Guide would be redundant.
It's also most likely not going to be able to handle mods from any source other than the nexus, so that's a real limiting factor.
The way the mod picker utility works is it literally "just works" with any mod picker mod list. So you get it for free by having the guide mod lists on mod picker. I have plans to integrate it with zMerge and zSmash in the future.
On the flip side of this, we've always believed that the entire modding process is part of gaining experience. With automation, users wouldn't be getting such experience, which greatly helps them down the road when issues arise. My only negative comment about automation that...users don't gain the experience they need to truly mod.
I recognize where this is coming from, but I don't think it's necessarily correct. I think that while some mod users are interested in gaining experience and understanding things, there are just as many (if not more) users who don't want to have that hassle because they simply do not have the time to invest. Hypothetically, automation can serve as a way for those people to "just play the game" when they don't have the time to invest in setting things up and learning how it works.
